Default Screen Protector Recommendations

OK, I searched this forum and didn't find anything about screen protectors. I'm getting the Note 10.1 in the next week, and I was wondering what everyone else is using and what seems to work best.

Thanks!

Search just a few threads down: Galaxy note 10.1 Screen Protector

My recommendation: Steinheil (now known as SGP). Top of the line but I've only had to replace one. They are tough! (and the SPen works too)

I have an SGP on my S3, but I would not recommend a protector for a tablet. Tried that on my Tab 10.1 and that did not look good.

Yep, I worry about scratching with the pen too. I have one coming in tomorrow, so we'll see how well it works.

The Note has Gorilla Glass, the S Pen will not scratch it, Samsung is not that stupid.

My Tab 10.1 was given to children to play with multiple times and after one year not a single scratch. I can assure you however, that it will completely spoil the experience if you put a screen protector on.

If you are worrying a lot, I think you should get something like SGP or any brand that is well regarded.

Well, the screen protectors that came are actually for the Galaxy Tab, not the Note. I didn't think that would be a problem, but I forgot about the cutouts for the forward facing camera. I guess the Galaxy Tab camera was in the corner. So, these are going back.

I guess my question is this. Are we sure that this thing has Gorilla glass? I didn't find anything in the manual or on Samsung's website about it. I found a FAQ about the Galaxy Tab having it, but not the Note. I truly hope it has it, but I've got two other devices that people swore had gorilla glass that actually don't.

Edit: I found an article at phonearena that specifically called out a Gorilla glass display. It's strange though, the Corning website shows other Samsung devices as using it, but not the Note 10.1. I suppose they may not do a good job of keeping it up to date.

I assumed it does have GG on, but cannot find any mention of it anywhere.

It seems logical however, that Samsung put GG on it as with the stuls it wuold be too easy to scratch without it.

Well, I hope the article was right. I'm tired of having words accross my screen. (I've left plastic it came with on.) I also read an article that said the glass is easy to replace if it does get scratched. So, I'm taking the plunge and going half naked. (Still using a case.)

Thanks for the opions all!

The only reasons I can think of are cost and availability. Hopefully neither was a problem when these were made.

I removed the free screen protector which the shop put on my Note N7000 because I think the touch-screen works better without it...and the glass is very tough.
