I'm using okonz tp.also need to press abit longer.
Film? I guess is the worse if ur hp is dropped. No?
The last phone i dropped was iphone 5. After that all the phones i used (ip7, ip8+, ip X, s10+) all never dropped before. I guess im a careful person who takes care of phone. Haha

Re-register your fingerprints. Do not use pressure to get it to read. Use the lightest touch possible.
Tried before but hit and miss still. sometimes says fingerprint not recognized, sometimes says need to press harder. Gave up on glass protectors. currently using hydrogel film which is 99% hit rate, but minor sharp things like fingernails pressing on the film while typing will make some dents/scars on the film which i find quite ugly.

The one that comes pre-installed with the phone. Best touchscreen experience by far.

Remember reading that the Samsung store does replacement for it?
Yup, read that too..

Called up Samsung hotline. 1 CSO told me no stock, another CSO ask me go Samsung service centre to enquire. Mine US set, don't know if they will paste for me if there is stock.

So i'm looking for other film type alternatives. The original factory protector from the box is it PET, TPU or plastic?

Don't see why not...they'd still charge you the same?

Yes i am the one replace the original film before
But not my s20 ultra but my s10+
Very cheap only less than $10 bucks
But just like the factory installed one
Very good quality
But only abit different in design
I enquired about it for my s20 ultra
They told me they suspended it due to the pandemic
I will call again soon
Btw anyone have problem with the bluetooth head set that comes free with the purchase?
Mine so fast one side no sound already
I not sure about the warranty
I will make a call to them about it soon also

Is 20+ still a worthy buy given the chipset and no 5G?

Honestly no. I know this has been dsicussed to death, but Exynos 990 is really pathetic compared to SD865.

It's 20% slower, and it's not just being slow. Overheating, bad battery life, poor signal... it's just not worth it.

Go with the S20FE. I think it's an overall better buy.

Can't seem to find what the touch sample rate for the Note 10+ is. I've not used Apple since iPhone 3 so I really can't understand the perks of a higher touch sample rate. But I'm guessing that the touch response is vastly superior at 240Hz.
It is not just the 120hz display. The 240hz touch response also matters. U will feel it during browsing the web and typing messages. I always wondered why apple keyboard was such a joy to type on. Well, after getting a phone with 240hz touch response rate, I feel apple keyboard is not that great anymore.
240hz touch sampling rate is activated only in certain games. Otherwise it's 120hz like in the Note 10 and probably most other (Samsung) flagships in recent years as well.
https://www.reddit.com/r/Galaxy_S20/...pling_rate_on/
The display has a 120Hz touch sampling rate, or screen sensitivity to touch, during normal use. This is regardless of whether the display refresh rate has been set to 60Hz or 120Hz. When playing games, the touch sample rate automatically increases to 240Hz.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=riWKa6hN_So
In case anyone has the Oneplus 8 Pro or 8T and can test using the method linked above: I'm interested to know if they have the same sampling rate behavior as the S20 since they are both advertised as 240hz touch sampling. But unlike Samsung's S20 announcement stream, in the 8T stream last night Oneplus didn't imply that 240hz was limited to games only.

What screen protectors are you guys using for the s20+? Anyone can recommend?

I've tried Whitestone Dome but don't really like it as need to apply some amount of pressure for the fingerprint scanner to read. Scan rate is 50/50 so I still prefer film type as it is accurate and fast.

Anyone can share what you using?
i using whitestone but i didnt using pressure to unlock at all. scan rate is about 95-98% unless my finger are too cold.

I am now at samsung service center
Sorry to relate they dont offer the original screen protector anymore
The reason is that many complain about bubbles after they pasted them
They even dont sell them now
Sad

Repairing my ear buds now
