The Google Pixel 6 Pro finds Google redefining how its smartphones fit within the wider market. No longer content with being kept solely in the “affordable phones with great cameras” bracket, it lays claim to premium features all around. This includes a new Google-made Tensor chip, a big 5,000mAh battery, an eye-watering triple-lens rear camera, and a hugely impressive 6.71-inch AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. As stunning as this display undoubtedly is, you will want to protect it, since even the Corning Gorilla Glass Victus it uses isn’t indestructible. We’ve compiled the best Pixel 6 Pro screen protectors currently available. This covers everything from affordable protectors to more premium items with extra features.
This film-based Pixel 6 Pro screen protector from Spigen is a great combination of durability and discretion. Its flexible material will wrap tightly around the Pixel’s entire screen, keeping every corner of it protected against damage. At the same time, it incorporates self-healing technology that will repair minor scuffs and scratches over time, making it look new for the duration of your time with it. It also comes with a unique wet installation process that Spigen claims ensures bubble-free application without the need for repeated lifting and adjustments. Needless to say, as a film-based protector, it’s also one of the most transparent screen protectors you’re likely to find for the Pixel 6 Pro right now.
Here’s a tempered glass screen protector that will take punches with the best of them. It comes with a 9H hardness rating, the highest you can have with a glass protector, and one that means it can resist scratches from household metal objects such as knives and keys (not that we recommend putting your Pixel in your pocket with your keys). Just as impressively, the inclusion of an underlying anti-shatter film means that, should you accidentally drop your phone from a significant height, the protector won’t break into fragments. It also won’t get in the way of you enjoying your new device, because with a thickness of only 0.27mm, it furnishes a more than 95% light-penetration ratio, making it highly transparent and responsive. As a glass-based protector, the risks of bubbles (when installing) are all but negligible. Highly recommended.
Sold in a high-value pack of two, this Pixel 6 Pro screen protector from Supershieldz is an attractive combination of effectiveness and affordability. It’s a TPU-based film protector that’s flexible and tough, so it will prevent all manner of everyday scratches and scrapes, while it will also keep your Pixel’s display looking great. It will naturally maintain the full responsiveness of the phone’s screen, meaning that the in-display fingerprint scanner will work exactly as intended 100% of the time. A great option if you don’t want to spend too much money.
The LK flexible TPU screen protector comes in a two-pack with an included three-pack camera lens protector made of ultra-thin tempered glass. The flexible TPU material is imported from Japan with nano “slow rebound” technology that’s designed to prevent scratches and other damage to your screen. The cover is sensitive and supports fingerprint unlock as well as fast tap and swipe response. The HD camera lens protector promotes clarity for your photos and videos.
Here’s a U.S.-made screen protector that, despite being film-based, is impressively rugged. Its flexible film has been specially prepared to be scratch-proof and resistant to yellowing, while it can also withstand substantial falls and impacts (in contrast to some film-based alternatives). On top of this, it harnesses self-repairing technology, so any minor scratches it does pick up will be gradually effaced over time. It’s also not only scratches it will reduce since it has been designed to keep dust, oil or grease, and fingerprint smudges at bay. Armorsuit has precisely laser-cut the protector, so it fits snugly to the Pixel’s entire screen, keeping every corner protected. Sold in a pack of two, just in case you damage the first one (which is probably unlikely). Comes with a full installation kit, including spray, squeegee, and microfiber cloth. Also comes with a lifetime replacement warranty, which we assume is something you’ll never need.
This screen protector, constructed with high-quality thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), is a flexible cover for the curved edges of your Pixel 6 Pro and provides maximum scratch resistance. The shield is transparent with a thin design that preserves the screen’s natural image quality and brightness. High-response haptic touch technology supports all unlocking methods, including fingerprint. It features the 9H hardness of tempered glass to protect the camera from scratches, while allowing full light to reach the lens. Positioning tools assist with easy installation without worrying about alignment. Its high-permeability glue automatically repairs small scratches and bubbles within 24 hours.
This is an affordable yet high-functioning screen protector that will do a very good job of keeping your Pixel Pro in new condition. Its tempered glass has received a 9H hardness rating, so you can more or less go hog wild with your phone and any hard object in your vicinity. It’s scratch-resistant and capable of surviving significant falls, while the 3D curve of its design means it hugs the Pixel’s screen tightly. Despite being pretty tough, it’s also a fairly thin protector, so it will keep the phone’s luscious display looking pretty, um, lush. If that weren’t enough, it’s sold in a pack of three.
