Just bought the S9+ coming from an S5.

With the curved screen I'm guessing that's it's very important to get a tempered glass screen protector that fits and a case that is confirmed to match?

- I want to get a case like this (but for the S9+) to carry my cards:

- I also want to get a tempered glass screen protector that will work with such a case and not pop out or anything because it doesn't fit inside the edges of the case.

- Lastly, this is my first massive phone at 6.2". I have small hands, so what can I get to help with one-handed operation? Maybe something like this?

Screen protector I use ...

...Which works really well and was kinda fun to apply!

Day to day I don't use a case but I have a slickwraps natural leather skin on the back stick gives it a bit more grip and looks nice.

If I'm cycling with it I stick it in an otterbox strada folio which seems pretty sturdy and protects the screen as well.

Edit: There's not a massive size difference in those two phones btw.

The phone (like all current Galaxy phones) has a one-handed mode that shrinks the active interface down, customized for your hand.

It can be engaged via gesture or triple-click on home.

I don't use screen protectors and I actually feel very liberated. :D

I haven't used screen protectors on this phone and I kind of regret it (S8). The oleophobic coating that prevents the oils on your hand from sticking to the screen was pretty much gone after 10-12 months or so, now it's harder to keep the screen clean. Would have been better if I had a layer on top that I could replace as the coatings start to fail to keep it looking fresh.

On top of that, there's an extra app in the galaxy store called "one hand operation +" which adds extra gesture controls. I really like it.
