The best Note 10 screen protectors

So you’ve got a Samsung Galaxy Note 10. Your phone takes everything fantastic about Samsung’s Note 10 range — the S Pen, an expansive display, and flagship specs, to name but a few — and shrinks it down to a slightly smaller package that you’ll find easier to fit into your hand.

Whether you’ve just bought your Note 10 or it’s now your well-worn pocket companion, you’ll still want to keep it protected. We’ve covered the best Note 10 cases, but what about the screen? The 6.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED display is a window into your wider world, and you don’t want it to become dirty — or worse, break. A screen protector can help stop that, whether it’s a film protector to protect against dirt and scratches or a heavy-duty tempered glass protector. Here are some of the best Samsung Galaxy Note 10 screen protectors.

OtterBox Clearly Protected Film Screen Protector

OtterBox’s screen protector for the Galaxy Note 10 is made of high-quality polyurethane film, which will keep your phone’s display looking sharp while also defending it from sharp objects. Given that it’s a film-based protector, it’s ultra-thin and retains all of the responsiveness and vividness of the Note 10’s screen. It’s also smudge-resistant and offers 100% compatibility with OtterBox’s cases. Comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

It may be film-based, but this Note 10 screen protector from ArmorSuit is seriously tough. It’s scratch-resistant and features self-healing technology, capable of removing minor scratches and marks gradually over time. It’s supremely thin, so it won’t interfere with the normal operation of the phone, and it has been laser cut to ensure the closest possible fit. On top of this, it prevents yellowing and also reduces smudges. Comes with a solution spray, squeegee, and microfiber cloth for easy installation.

XClear 3 Pack Screen Protector

Sold in a pack of three, this screen protector from XClear combines a number of enticing features. It has been built using scratch-resistant materials, and it has been treated with hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings, so it will repel water and greasy fingerprints. Made of film, it’s also highly transparent and sensitive and will provide full compatibility with the Note 10’s fingerprint scanner. Comes with an alignment frame and wipes for more straightforward application.

Olixar Tempered Glass Screen Protector

Olixar is a brand you can trust when it comes to phone accessories, and their tempered glass screen protector for the Note 10 is no exception. It’s ultra-thin at just 0.27mm yet provides tough protection and is scratch and shatter resistant. Although it’s tough, it won’t decrease the brightness of your phone display or interfere with its sensitivity. It’s also easy to achieve a bubble-free installation as it comes bundled with a cleaning cloth, wet-wipe, and dust-removal sticker.

amFilm Glass Screen Protector

AmFilm produces screen protectors for a wide range of phones, and its 3D curve glass protector for the Note 10 is worthy of mention. Measuring just 0.33mm thin, it provides protection from scratches and scrapes and has an oleophobic coating to repel greasy fingerprints. It’s also a breeze to install thanks to the easy installation tray, wet wipes, and microfiber cloth — and a handy installation guide too. One downside to this screen protector is that it won’t work with the in-screen fingerprint scanner, so if this is something you use regularly, you might want to give this one a miss.

IQ Shield Film Screen Protector

When it comes to screen protectors that are easy on the budget, our pick is this film protector from IQ Shield. You can pick up this durable, crystal-clear film protector for just $7 — and it’s a dual pack, so you’ll have a spare to hand. Installation is easy too as a handy kit is included in the box. If you’re watching the pennies, this is the screen protector for you.

Tozo Tempered Glass Screen Protector

If you simply need strong protection, then Tozo’s Tempered Glass Screen Protector has you covered. It’s made from 9H hardness glass that should resist a wide variety of threats, and it has been treated with an oleophobic coating to resist fingerprints and oily substances. The edges match the Note 10’s curves, and it has been designed to be compatible with many cases. Thanks to the full-coverage design, it also covers the selfie camera and keeps it safe from harm, and it’s totally compatible with the in-display fingerprint scanner. The only issue is that Tozo recommends you turn on the Touch Sensitivity option to ensure full touch sensitivity, but that’s not much work to do when it costs just $7.

Skinomi Matteskin Film Screen Protector

The Note 10’s display is bright and vivid, but glare from strong lights can still obscure your view while you’re outdoors. If that’s a common problem for you, consider Skinomi’s Matteskin film protector. It’s been treated with a matte layer that reduces the chance that light will bounce from your display, making it much easier to see in strong daylight. As it’s film, it won’t be as protective as glass, but it will protect well against dirt and minor scratches, and it has oleophobic and self-healing properties too. It even resists the yellowing effect that afflicts many film protectors as they age. Best of all, it’s just $8 for a two-pack.

Magglass Privacy Glass Screen Protector

The Note 10 has so much screen it’s easy to be productive, but what if you’re doing some mobile banking, reading an embarrassing book, or are a member of a super-secret spy agency? A privacy screen protector like this one from Magglass is a great idea. It’s made from hard glass, so it’s resistant to scratches, drops, and bumps, but the headline attraction is the privacy-protecting layer. When viewed from the front, it’s clear and easy to see. But as soon as you move to an angle, the screen fades to black, protecting your privacy. Magglass recommends you turn on the Touch Sensitivity setting to reduce a loss of sensitivity. Still, if your privacy needs protecting, this is a good $17 investment.

Ringke Dual Easy Film Screen Protector

Ringke’s Dual Easy screen protector always deserves a place on our list. The film won’t be the most protective option in the world, but it will guard against dirt, dust, and scratches. It’s thin, and doesn’t interfere with your screen’s sensitivity, look, or the ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner. The “easy” in the name comes from the application method, which uses four layers to ensure that dust is removed during installation, reducing the chance of small particles ending up between your protector and display. The low price is a plus, and the dual pack adds to its value and allows you to keep a replacement on hand.

Whitestone Dome Glass Screen Protector

Whitestone offers the best in total glass protection. This is because the Dome Glass protector uses ultra-durable hard tempered glass. This protector can even help prevent your screen from shattering during a drop, although we still recommend using it with a case just in case.

The application is a little complex compared to other options. A layer of liquid adhesive binds the protector and your screen. After curing the adhesive with the UV lamp, a strong bond binds the screen and protector. As a result, the fingerprint scanner still works perfectly.

The liquid application can even help an already-cracked screen. The adhesive can flow into cracks and stop them from getting worse. However, all that comes at a price — the Dome Glass is expensive.

Spigen Neo Flex HD Film Screen Protector

Spigen’s film screen protector doesn’t have any over-the-top features, but it still earned a position on our list of favorites. It has a super transparent, flexible PET film that offers second-to-none phone protection. The protector will mold to your phone’s curves, which helps eliminate air bubbles and results in better overall coverage. It’s also able to heal itself, immediately repairing minor scratches by sealing the inner layer as damages occur. 

It can be difficult to install the protector with the wet installation technique, but we highly suggest doing it this way, as it’s worth the extra time and effort involved. This method will give you a smoother fit and finish, which won’t inhibit your fingerprint sensor. 

This particular film is compatible with all of Spigen’s protective cases, which is great news for current Spigen users. It provides incredible capabilities at an affordable price. You can even purchase a pack of 2 if you’re looking for a value boost.

The best Samsung Galaxy S24 screen protectors: our 10 favorites
Two Samsung Galaxy S24 units standing upright next to each other.

The Samsung Galaxy S24 may not be a seismic shift, but it has allowed Samsung to make some strong improvements to an already solid formula. One of the biggest comes to the display, which has increased in size to 6.2 inches, but crucially, now comes with a dynamic refresh rate that shifts between 1-120Hz. While not a tangible change on the level of the new Galaxy AI features, this improvement brings the phone up to the level of the ultra-flagship Galaxy S24 Ultra, and makes it a very tasty morsel indeed.

But a gorgeous screen is only gorgeous if it stays that way, and grime, chips, and even cracks can quickly mar your view if you're not careful. A good way to stop harm to your new smartphone's screen is to put something in the way — and screen protector is made to do that (when paired with a good case). Here are some of the best Samsung Galaxy S24 screen protectors you can buy today.

The best Samsung Galaxy S23 screen protectors in 2023: our 10 favorites
Holding the Samsung Galaxy S23 with the display turned on.

Samsung's Galaxy S24 may be just around the corner, but that doesn't mean the Samsung Galaxy S23 isn't still a great phone that's worth protecting, especially its gorgeous AMOLED 2X edge-to-edge display.

Even though that screen is made from the latest Gorilla Glass, it's still susceptible to scratches and scuffs, so unless you plan to use a folio case, we'd strongly recommend an extra layer of protection to keep your display looking pristine. That's even more true if you're the adventurous type, since even the most durable cases for your Galaxy S23 are only fighting half the battle.

The best Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra screen protectors in 2023: top 12 picks
The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra's screen.

It may be nearly a year old, but Samsung's Galaxy S23 Ultra remains one of the most powerful smartphones on the market — and it's still a great buy even with the Galaxy S24 Ultra on the horizon.

All the incredible power and performance packed into the S23 Ultra doesn't come cheap, which means you'll want to keep your investment protected from the get-go, especially considering that its gorgeous and expansive Dynamic AMOLED 2X 6.8-inch display seems like such an easy target for scratches and impacts. It may have amazingly durable Gorilla Glass Victus 2 on the front, but that doesn't make it impervious to damage, and it's definitely not immune to scratches and scuffs.
