Hey guys, first time poster here

I just got the Galaxy S5 and I really wanna make sure I protect the screen well. I did some reading, and it seems tempered glass screen protectors are the way to go. Anybody know where to buy them locally? I really don't wanna have to get one from overseas since that takes ages (and can be expensive) and I just know something will happen in that time.

I appreciate the help :)

If you register your S5 on the Samsung website you are covered for a glass replacement screen for two occasions at no charge

Also got my S5 today...I noticed that the little flap to pull of the screen cover that came on the phone had a perforation. If you snap off that little tag, you get a preinstalled screen cover.

Yeah I'm aware of the ADH premium that they bundle with the phone (which is awesome by the way). But freak accidents do happen and I'd rather have a screen protector that I can just take off and replace immediately if I want to.

Haha I did that for a couple of days, but then two grains of sand managed to stick into the plastic and I immediately removed it. Sand did a real number on my old Nokia N81 so I really wanna keep this one pristine

^This
Clear screen protectors can be bought at R70 for 2. That with the Samsung warranty makes paying the odd R500 for a piece of stick-on glass redundant imo
