So folks, I've been holding out on this but I'm going to recommend:

BestBuy ClearPlex

I've been using it for 12 to 18 months on my S8+, here's the beauty:
- Free Replacement & Installation (if damaged, they're usually flexible)
- Partially Self-Healing
- Comfortable Feel
- Ultrasonic Fingerprint Sensor Friendly
- 'Professionally Installed'

I've already had the S10+ back done, and I may get the front done as well if I don't like the OEM screen protector they put on.

Cost: ~ $30 (per side)

Costly but you never have to worry about installing or replacing a screen protector again. If you're a power user, it's attractive.

Not true tempered glass works as long as you get the ones with the loca adhesive. I bought the whitestone one just coz its Samsung certified for the s10s installation was a bit of a hassle to get the fingerprint to work properly but once u do it properly the tempered glass feels great like the original glass. Only thing I don't like is the cutout for the camera. Would have preferred no cut out.

Fair enough. Bear in mind, the idea of an indented cut-out for a glass screen protector repulses me, seems like a magnetic for dirt and dust.

I also think screen glass protectors are so 2015, as they remain too thick, and appear unsightly sitting on the display.

I'm strongly recommending folks go with the BestBuy ClearPlex for convenience and warranty purposes.

My opinion.

I wonder when Samsung will close my order and remit my final invoice with the IMEI on it.

Is ClearPlex model specific? Like will it have the cutout for the S10 front-cameras?

Quite possibly, as the Samsung OEM protector does, and they try to mimic that in this generation (S10 series). It's a great product/service, see below:

So folks, preliminary impressions from the S10+:
- Fingerprint Sensor is 6.9 / 10 (before updates)
- Phone is snappy for common tasks
- Elegant design and feel

Pretty satisfied with the phone. I'm getting better with the fingerprint sensor, but I'm hoping it improves after I apply the updates queued up on my phone

I miss the S10e capacitive sensor on the side, but I feel there are enough fixes and workarounds to avoid serious annoyance.

Looks like it only works on s10 and s10+, but not the s10e (which is what I'm looking for)
