Samsung Galaxy S8 Screen Protector

I have just purchased a samsung galaxy s8 and bought a glass screen protector to find it didnt stick properly and was very unresponsive, i was wondering; are plastic protectors better than glass and which screen protectors would anyone recommend, as a side note i dont want to be spending stupid amounts of money for a screen protector

plastic scratches more easily but tempered glass cracks more easily, just look at the galaxy active series, for a more durable screen they use plastic on the active series :)

Glass or unprotected for the win.  I don't spend $1000 on my fancy screens to have to be looking at them through a shite peice of crappy plastic.  So what if the screen protector breaks, you can buy a new one.  And I'm pretty sure glass ones are better against impacts....

Curved screens make screen protectors a bit of a nightmare, most companies don't do it right and even if it does fit case compatibility goes out the window

If you have a quality plastic one like the one from rhino shield, your screen will look fine (I dropped my phone on a corner of a chair and I only have one little dent in my screen protector and with a glass one I'd have to buy a new one)

And plastic scratches more easily than glass it's not that your whole screen looks mega ugly after 2 weeks of use

I have a plastic one on my Note8.

 

It wraps around the whole side to the back so cases are no issue.
