The Samsung Galaxy A72 is a midrange smartphone that packs numerous premium features into its more affordable shell. Aside from its 64-megapixel main camera and juicy 5,000mAh battery, its headline feature is a gorgeous 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display that provides HD resolution and support for a 90Hz refresh rate. It looks absolutely fantastic in action, with a vividness and fluidity that make the A72 look much more expensive than it really is. However, it won’t look great for long if you drop your phone. That’s why we’ve put together this list of the best Samsung Galaxy A72 screen protectors available right now.
This covers more affordable protectors as well as those that go that extra mile to preserve the A72’s pretty display. We’ll add more protectors as and when they become available. Also, if you’re looking for a case to go with your protector, check out our article on the best Samsung Galaxy A72 cases and covers.
If you want a clear, practical, and tough screen protector that will keep your Galaxy A72 safe from harm, this number from Olixar is one of the best you can find right now. It’s made of chemically reinforced tempered glass with a 9H hardness rating, the highest possible. This means it will resist scratches from keys, knives, and other household metal objects, while its underlying anti-shatter film will prevent it from breaking into pieces in the unfortunate event of a seriously bad fall. If that weren’t enough, the protector is only 0.27mm thick, giving it a light penetration ratio of 95%. In other words, your A72’s screen will look just as vibrant — and will be just as responsive — as it would be without a protector. The protector is also designed to be fully compatible with the A72’s in-screen fingerprint sensor, and it promises not to bubble during application. Basically, it’s as good as it gets.
You don’t have to spend a packet to own a good screen protector, as this example from Omoton proves. Sold in a high-value pack of four, this Galaxy A72 screen protector is made of tempered glass with the all-important 9H hardness rating, making it scratch resistant and capable of surviving chance encounters with various sharp (and heavy) objects. The protector is precisely cut to fit around the contours of the A72’s screen, while it’s also nicely transparent, helping you to forget that you attached it in the first place. One nice bonus is the addition of hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings, which repel water and oily liquids, sparing your phone’s screen from unsightly fingerprints and smudges. Lastly, the protector boasts 2.5D rounded edges, so it’s comfortable as well as able to fit snugly onto the A72.
If you’re worried about your A72’s camera lenses (as well as its display), then this screen protector from QHOHQ is just the ticket. It comes in a pack of three, and adds three protectors for the phone’s rear lenses for good measure. Both protectors are made of high-quality tempered glass, so they’re tough and durable, capable of deflecting impacts and surviving drops. Both have also been laser cut, with the screen protector covering the A72’s entire display, while still leaving room for the phone’s selfie camera and its rounded corners. As with other protectors, this one has a helpful oleophobic surface, so you can use your phone while eating french fries without having to worry too much about leaving oily smudges and stains. Another helpful feature is the protector’s thinness, which at only 0.33mm makes it highly transparent and responsive, including full compatibility with the A72’s fingerprint sensor. Other features included smoothed 2.5D edges and an adhesive that uses electrostatic absorption to affix itself tightly to the A72’s screen.
OtterBox makes some of the best smartphone cases in the industry, and it makes some highly capable screen protectors as well. This protector for the A72 is no different, combining all of the key requirements into a shield that will keep your phone’s screen in one piece. It’s made of strong tempered glass with the full 9H hardness rating, so it will guard your phone against scratches, cracks, and other kinds of damage. It also boasts shatter resistance, so you can rest assured that most drops will have little or no effect on its integrity. Another kind of resistance it offers is against smudges, with its oleophobic treatment keeping away fingerprints. One final welcome feature is that promises 100% OtterBox case compatibility, so you won’t need to worry about picking a case that won’t fit the A72 once you’ve attached the protector.
Sold as a pack of two, CaptainShld’s Galaxy A72 screen protector will keep the phone’s display in very good health. Made of tempered glass, its 9H hardness rating means that you can scratch with keys and knives without leaving a visible trace, while it should also offer decent drop protection. It’s also designed to be transparent and sensitive to touch, so you’ll hardly notice it’s there. Other nice touches include its 2.5D rounded edges (making it highly compatible with cases), as well as its bubble-free adhesive.
Sold in a pack of three with the added bonus of two camera lens protectors, Pulen’s Galaxy A72 screen protector is a great compromise between protection and price. Its tempered glass provides a 9H hardness rating, so even if it’s pretty cheap, it will protect your A72 as if it were double the price. Much the same goes for its hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings, which will resist water, grease, and oil in equal measure. It has been laser cut to ensure the closest possible fit with the A72’s display, with a precise cutout for the selfie camera and smooth corners. The protector also promises a high level of transparency, and it uses an adhesive that won’t create bubbles during application.
Qitayo’s Samsung Galaxy A72 screen protector is another strong and highly transparent entry in this list. It uses tempered glass with a 9H hardness rating, so you know it will do a good job of preventing your A72 from picking up scratches and cracks. It also comes with a thickness of only 0.33mm, indicating that it’s pretty much as transparent and as sensitive as any other protector out there, and that you’ll be able to use the A72 just as you would without a protector. In fact, Qitayo promise 99% clarity, something that’s helped by the incorporation of an oleophobic coating, which stops fingerprints from forming on the display. To make things even better, the protector is sold in a pack of two, and it comes with two camera lens protectors, so if you’re worried about dropping your phone on its lenses, you know where to go.
