The best Google Pixel 4 XL screen protectors

The Google Pixel 4 XL is a big Android flagship that lives up to the hype. It boasts a fantastic dual-lens camera system, snappy performance, intuitive and intelligent software, and a lively 6.3-inch touchscreen. Of course, having a bigger screen means that there’s more of it to potentially damage, so it’s a good idea to get yourself a screen protector. Even if you already have a case for your Pixel 4 XL, screen protectors are still worth the money, since sometimes the displays themselves can directly take knocks.

Accordingly, here are the five best Pixel 4 XL screen protectors available right now.

Omoton Google Pixel 4 XL Screen Protector

Coming in a very handy pack of four, the OMOTON Google Pixel 4 XL Screen Protector is an excellent choice for anyone wanting to save money without skimping on quality or durability. Its tempered glass features a hardness rating of 9H, which means it’s capable of enduring most moderate knocks and falls you could throw at it. At the same time, its 0.3mm thickness helps preserve the full responsiveness of the Pixel 4 XL touchscreen, while its guide frame makes it very easy to install. All in all, a very good screen protector.

Supershieldz for Google Pixel 4X Screen Protector

Another Pixel 4X screen protector with a 9H hardness rating, this Supershieldz protector has been designed for maximum protection from scratches. Coming in a pack of two, it boasts 99.99% HD clarity, which will retain the screen’s brightness and its responsiveness. It’s oleophobic and hydrophobic, helping to protect it from sweaty fingerprints and water. On top of this, it provides a lifetime replacement warranty, for added security.

Qitayo Screen Protector for Google Pixel 4 XL

The Qitayo Screen Protector for Google Pixel 4 XL is another low-cost yet high-grade Pixel 4 XL protector. It’s available in a pack of three, providing very good value, yet it doesn’t lack anything when it comes to durability or reliability. It has a 9H hardness rating, as well as a lifetime replacement warranty, just in case it does actually break after a fall. That said, it doesn’t quite cover the entire screen, leaving a gap for the forehead bezel, which Qitayo claims is intended to increase its compatibility with cases. Still, its HD glass is reportedly 99.99% touchscreen accurate, while it’s also easy to install and designed to be bubble-free.

LK Screen Protector for Google Pixel 4 XL

This is another example of a budget Pixel 4 XL screen protector that’s also very high quality. Sold as a pack of three, the LK Screen Protector offers all the durability you need while also providing lots of value for money and ease of use. It also has a 9H hardness rating, equipping it for all kinds of everyday bumps and trauma. In parallel, its tempered glass has been designed to be HD clear and touch-sensitive, so that it dulls none of the Pixel 4 XL’s vibrancy or responsiveness. It also comes with a guidance frame, so even if it’s your first time fitting a screen protector, you shouldn’t experience any problems.

IQ Shield Google Pixel 4 XL Screen Protector

In contrast to the other Pixel 4 XL screen protectors on this list, the IQ Shield screen protector is made from a clear TPU film rather than glass. In theory, this might make it a little less durable than protectors made of tempered glass. In practice, it still does a very good job of sparing your Pixel 4 XL’s screen from scratches and damage, given that it’s composed of four separate layers. Also, it’s basically invisible to the naked eye, in comparison to other protectors. Meanwhile, its top layer includes a UV coating that protects it from yellowing. It also comes as a pack of two and includes a lifetime replacement guarantee.

When picking up the latest devices, getting something that's made to last is a high priority for the vast majority of buyers. This is especially true with foldables since they're designed to be bent into multiple shapes. With the launch of Google's first foldable, the Pixel Fold, many are wondering how it will fare when compared to the durability of other foldables on the market.

Water resistance is a big concern for many people since smartphones get exposed to water nearly every day. In the house, bathrooms and kitchens pose a threat.
