phone screen protectors

I'm looking for a screen protector for a Samsung Note 9 on which I have a silicone case. The brand I used on my previous phone, which I really like, doesn't make protectors for this one. Amazon ratings have left me confused, so I'm looking for recommendations.

i dont think its worth the energy to scrutinize over something so trivial and commoditized. i imagine theres no more than a handful of actual film stock, and theyre all relabeled and resold a billion ways.
for phones with unique shaping and cutout, i buy whatever is cheapest. for other standard rectangular screens (like a digital camera), i use spare generic blankets and cut to size.

for most people, its easiest to pay some folks working at cell phone booths and kiosks to apply the film as they do a better job

Agree with this one, just get the cheapest.

Get the 9H tempered ones if you can. Saved my phone the other day when a tree root that definitely wasn't there when I looked, suddenly appeared put of nowhere when I was trail running.

I use an iPhone but I like the MaxBoost brand from Amazon. It comes with a plastic template that you place over the phone and then apply the screen protector. Makes it super easy to get it in the right spot. Also includes all the stuff to clean the screen prior to application.

I appreciate the suggestions. Since possibilities are unlike the kind I'm used to, I'll probably go to the local UBreakIFix store and get the protector applied for me.
