The best screen protectors for the LG G6

LG G6 review
Andy Boxall/Digital Trends
LG recently released the LG G6, ushering in the era of 18:9 aspect ratio. Until then, we were used to 16:9 aspect ratio, at least on smartphones. The face of LG’s latest phone is nearly 85 percent screen, and while it’s certainly beautiful, all that glass is vulnerable to drop damage and scratches.

Picking the right screen protector isn’t an easy task, however. Some of them won’t work with cases, while others may affect the clarity or touch sensitivity of your screen. Thankfully, we’ve put together a list of some of the best screen protectors for the LG G6, so you can help protect that beautiful display.

The Best

Otterbox Alpha Glass ($36)

When it comes to drop protection, the name Otterbox comes up again and again, and with good reason. This screen protector does everything that you would want a glass screen protector to do. It maintains the clarity of your screen, it won’t interfere with your use of the smartphone as it doesn’t affect screen sensitivity, and it resists both scratching and shattering.

The Rest

Spigen Slim HD ($30)

Spigen’s G6 screen protector offers decent scratch and shatter protection. The design curves perfectly with the G6’s screen, but it doesn’t go all the way to the edges, which is great if you want to pair it with a case. It has no nasty rainbow effect — unlike cheaper alternatives — and maintains the full clarity of your display.

BodyGuardz Pure 2 ($40)

The BodyGuardz protector is interesting in that it uses a new material called Aluminosilicate. The material takes care of something some people don’t like about tempered glass protectors — specifically, their thickness. Aluminosilicate makes for a thinner protector, one that is more protective than its soda-lime-based alternatives. Another advantage to BodyGuardz wears is that they come with a lifetime guarantee, assuming you purchase them from an authorized reseller.

iCarez Tempered Glass (Case Friendly) ($8)

The iCarez screen protector features rounded edges, making it hard to tell if your phone is even using a screen protector. This version doesn’t go all the way to the edges, however, which ensures it will play nice with most LG G6 cases. They also have a regular, 2.5D protector that goes to the edges, if you like to go caseless. Like other quality screen protectors, it also offers the utmost clarity and impact protection, without sacrificing touch sensitivity.

Supershieldz Tempered Glass ($8)

Spupershieldz offers one of the best deals you can find on LG G6 screen protectors. This bundle of three is a mere $8 on Amazon, and it offers features typically reserved for more expensive options. It is, however, worth mentioning that this tempered glass protector has 2.5D rounded edges and is not case-friendly. It also offers 9H scratch resistance, an oleophobic coating that resists fingerprints, and no rainbow effect, which helps maintain screen clarity.

Bixby vs. Google Assistant: Which AI is better for you?
google assistant mobile.

AI digital assistants and chatbots (like ChatGPT) are huge now, and there are more than a few to choose from. If you, like many Android phone owners, have a Samsung device, then you have the choice between two AI assistants: the Google-backed Google Assistant and Samsung's Bixby.
What are the differences between the two assistants, and which one is better for you? Is Bixby better than Google Assistant, or should you  go all-in with Google's AI? We compared Bixby and the Google Assistant to find out. 
Bixby vs. Google Assistant: device integration

Google Assistant is available on all Google Nest and Home products, including Android TVs, lights, security cams, speakers, and more. Google Assistant is also available on Android Auto, so you can use the virtual assistant to execute commands when you’re driving. Google Assistant is available on other brands' smart devices too, so you can use Google's voice assistant on Lenovo's Smart Home System. You'll also find it in all of the best Android phones, but did you know you can also download and use it on Apple iPhones as well?
Samsung’s Bixby, on the other hand, is limited to Samsung devices, like the Galaxy S23 Ultra. It's also limited to only being able to control other devices via the SmartThings app, rather than having native support. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it is more restricted. However, full functionality of Bixby is limited to newer devices, so unlike Google Assistant, which tends to be available to older devices, you'll need to keep upgrading to get the most out of Bixby.
This won’t matter much for users who’ve been using Samsung devices for years and want to continue investing in new Samsung products, but if you live with people using different Android devices, Google Assistant might be a better option for smoother integration across devices.
The winner is pretty clear here. Google Assistant is available on a lot more devices, including Apple iPhones, and helps you to create a comprehensive system for convenient use. 
Winner: Google Assistant
Bixby vs. Google Assistant: performance and accessibility

Google's Pixel family of smartphones has made a notable impact on the Android smartphone world, but not in the way we saw coming a few years back. Flagship Pixel smartphones are great, but where the Pixel really shines is in the budget space. In 2023, the next phase of the affordable Pixel will take the shape of the Google Pixel 7a.

The Pixel 7a will have pretty big shoes to fill, as 2022's Pixel 6a remains one of the best smartphone deals, delivering an excellent camera and software experience at a killer price.
