The best OnePlus 6 screen protectors

The OnePlus 6 has one of the most immersive screens of any cell phone in its class, but that beautiful screen won’t do you much good if it shatters. Protecting your phone with a quality screen protector is one of the most cost-effective ways to keep your precious smartphone safe.

But, with so many competitors on the market, it can be tough to narrow the field and find the best screen protector for you. Read on, and we’ll give you the scoop on all your best options.

Sparin Tempered Glass Screen Protector

Sold in a very generous pack of four, these OnePlus 6 screen protectors from Sparin are made out of tempered glass with a 9H hardness rating, the highest you can get. This means your screen will be protected from all manner of scratches and splinters. Not only that, but the screen protector also boasts 99.99% clarity, providing almost exactly the same level of transparency and sensitivity as you’d get from the OnePlus 6’s screen on its own. It comes with an alignment frame, so you can fit it easily, while its air-exhausting adhesive causes it to attach instantly to the phone’s screen.

We’ve written a list of the best OnePlus 6 cases to complete your protection, but what if you’re really not a fan of cases? Check out this screen protector from GadgetShieldz which protects not only your screen but the back and sides of your phone, too. It’s made from flexible but durable film bolstered with nano polymers for self-healing properties. This flexibility means that the protector can bend to adapt to the curves of your device and leave no surface uncovered. The film adds grip to the slippery glass of your OnePlus 6 without feeling tacky, and since it’s only 0.2mm thick it doesn’t add any extra bulk to your slim phone either. It won’t protect as much as a glass protector, but it’s better than nothing.

Here’s another tempered glass OnePlus 6 screen protector that offers 9H hardness, making it highly resistant to everyday bumps and impacts. It also comes with a hydrophobic and oleophobic coating, so that fingerprints and smudges are kept to an absolute minimum. You’ll also find it pretty easy to install, given its 2.5D rounded edges, which make it easier to grip when applying, and will also help the protector to fit the screen more discreetly. This is also helped by its thinness, which ensures 99.99% clarity, as well as all the responsiveness you’d need to use the phone as normal. Comes in a pack of two.

IQShield Liquid Shield Screen Protector

Another tough and flexible film screen protector, this option from IQShield conforms to the curves of your device, helping to protect it from scratches and other damage. It doesn’t protect all of your device and it’s not going to be as protective against drops as tempered glass, but it should still hold up well thanks to its layered construction. The Liquid Shield is formed from four layers, including an anti-yellowing UV layer, a tough protective layer, and a fully adhesive bottom layer. It’s almost completely invisible to the eye, doesn’t leave any residue on your screen after its done its job, and best of all, it’s cheap.

As soon as anyone starts throwing military terms around, you know you’ve probably got a winner on your hands. This screen protector is made from a flexible and tough film that was apparently created to coat military helicopter blades. According to ArmorSuit, it protects against sand, impact damage, and comes with self-healing properties. It’s treated with an anti-yellowing coating, which helps to stop your protector aging badly. It should be a perfect fit too, as it uses a wet installation method that puts a layer between the screen protector and the display, ensuring a close fit and great touchscreen sensitivity. It’s not as tough as glass, but it’s good enough to see your phone through a good few bashes.

Olixar Glass Screen Protector

Olixar is steadily expanding its repertoire of high-quality mobile adornments and continues to grow in popularity as its products rank well with satisfied users. They certainly uphold a high standard with this screen protector. This screen protector is made from hardened tempered glass that should protect your display from blows that would otherwise shatter your screen. If the worst should happen and the protector breaks, then the anti-shatter film beneath will stop it from coming apart and lancing into your fingers. It’s hard and clear and has an easy installation method with little risk of bubbling underneath the glass. It’s also super-thin at just 0.26mm thick. This is good protection at an attractive price.

RhinoShield Impact Protection Screen Protector

Most film screen protectors do not hold up against impacts since flexible film simply isn’t as strong as tempered glass. RhinoShield claims that its screen protector is unique, in that it can guard against hammer blows and take five-times more impact energy than the Gorilla Glass 5 on the OnePlus 6’s display. We haven’t tested that claim, and we know any sane phone owner wouldn’t deliberately try to ruin their phone to prove a point either. However, even if it isn’t true, this film protector is most likely pretty similar to protectors in the same class. It’s strong, resistant to smudges, dirt, and fingerprints, and it’s also compatible with a decent variety of cases. It’s about as thin as three sheets of printer paper.

Orzly Pro-Fit Tempered Glass Screen Protector

Sold in a pack of two, Orzly’s Pro-FitScreen Protector for the OnePlus 6 manages to balance sturdy durability with a high level of clarity. This protector is thin and provides 99.9% transparency, while its tempered glass is reinforced by additional layers of plastic underlay and overlay, making it even more resistant to shocks and falls. We think it is a pretty solid option for protection. However, we think you should know that there have been complaints from users who claim that the material bubbles after they apply it to the screen. This isn’t something you should worry about as long as you make sure you do this properly.

The OnePlus 13 just got exciting
A person holding the OnePlus 12.

Four months after its release, the OnePlus 12 remains one of the best smartphones you can buy in 2024. It looks great, offers incredible specifications, and has an excellent price. One of the first OnePlus 13 leaks was just shared online, and if it’s true, it could make one of this year’s best phones even better … with a catch.

According to leaker Digital Chat Station, the OnePlus 13 will feature two big upgrades over the OnePlus 12. The first is its screen. Unlike the OnePlus 12 and OnePlus 12R, which both have curved displays, the OnePlus 13 will reportedly have a “straight screen.” The translation from the Chinese post on Weibo to English isn’t perfect, but it certainly sounds like the OnePlus 13 is ditching the curved screen of its predecessor in favor of a flat one.

The wait for Android 15 is over for some owners of some OnePlus devices. With Android 15 Beta 2 expected to launch today, OnePlus is rolling out the Android 15 Beta 1 for owners of the OnePlus 12 and OnePlus Open. Now, keep in mind that this is still a beta, meaning it’s intended for developers and advanced users, and there are still several known issues and bugs.

The update will roll out globally and needs to be manually installed. We highly recommend following the steps OnePlus has laid out in its forum post and backing up the data on your phone since there is a risk of bricking. To upgrade, you’ll need to be running Android 14.0.0.610 and below; versions above it can’t be upgraded without rolling back.
