Spigen Glas.tR Platinum 2.0 Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra - 1 Pack https://amzn.eu/d/i6CXvmd

[Dome Glass] Galaxy S21 Ultra Screen Protector, Full HD Clear 3D Curved Edge Tempered Glass [Compatible with Ultrasonic Fingerprint] Semi-Automatic 4 Step Installation by Whitestone - Two Pack https://amzn.eu/d/87b7BV2

I've put a link to a couple that I know are pretty good and do work with fingerprint. Little pricey mind you, but if you watch the tutorials on how to install. You should get good results. Up to you though, read reviews before you decide.

The Spigen one is the one I'd go for
The kits work really well

Funnily enough the Spigen one that fiona has posted is actually also made by Whitestone and it is a collaboration project between whitestone and spigen.

Over the 2 years of my s21 ultra, I have tried many different ones.

The Whitestone dome above was the best of the bunch but I did have varied success.

The first of the two applied correctly on the first attempt and after watching videos... but be very careful and use a flat surface ! However after a period of around 3 or 4 months then a crack appeared somewhere close to the top where the screen is curved. I lived with this for a few further months before I decided to replace for the second protector in the kit.

I did a second attempt but this time I was a little bit quick with the process and it went wrong ! The liquid glue did not centralise correctly and there was a big air bubble at the bottom.

I contacted Whitestone and they were good enough to provide a warranty replacement for free. This was very good of them. I did a better job and it worked. This protector lasted another 6 months or so... and also then started some fine cracking around the curves.

So bearing in mind these protectors costed £40+ for two... it was not the cheapest or the best experience.

I have tried a couple of other cheaper tempered glass covers and they didn't work with finger sensor.

There are a few reasonable protectors on amazon that are flexible... of course these are not as good protection but still stop scratches etc.

For the past few months I have started using the phone without a protector. To be honest the glass screen is fine without if you are a careful owner... and I haven't seen any signs of micro scratches just yet... I do also have it pocketed with keys etc at times.

Hope this helps.

@KayeP 

My preference is the Whitestone Dome Protectors.

They work well with the fingerprint scanner and there are no dead spots due to the way the Protectors adhere to the the display.

They're all a waste of time. The money I spent on screen protectors for my Samsungs with the ultrasonic reader and ended up throwing them out, would have paid for a new screen.

I just use mine without now.

Personally speaking as above have a look at Amazon but check for customer reviews or better still ask the question to the seller this way you have some fall back.

You're braver than me @HootleTootle  👍 

I'd be concerned about accidental bumps and any micro scratches that could occur 🤔

I've used Whitestone Dome Glass Screen Protectors on my phone's  [ My Fold³ being the one exception ] , and they've all worked pretty well with the fingerprint scanner.

One tip I picked up is after the 1st curing with the Uv light is to press gently down where the scanner is and then finish off with the 2nd Uv curing.

The Protectors have done their job especially when one of my younger grandchildren decided to see if they could use my phone as a skipping stone 🫣
