The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 remains one big beast of a smartphone. Featuring a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, it provides some serious touchscreen for its price, trumping last year’s already large Note 10. It’s also a very attractive smartphone overall, boasting those distinctive angular edges and a beautiful Mystic Bronze color. Of course, a phone’s good looks can easily be tarnished by drops, bumps, and scratches, so we’ve put together a list of the best Samsung Galaxy Note 20 screen protectors available right now.

From the more affordable to the Samsung-approved, these protectors will do a good job of keeping your Note 20’s screen free of scratches, cracks, and chips.
This film-based Note 20 screen protector combines ultra-thin transparency with a high level of protection. It has been designed to be anti-scratch, capable of resisting damage from sharp household objects. Tech21 has also seen fit to add an antimicrobial coating, which will reduce the growth of microbes and bacteria by up to 99%, leaving you with a much more hygienic screen. Given that it’s a film-based protector, its curved fit applies snugly to the Note 20’s screen, with its thinness offering some of the best possible responsiveness you can get from a protector. Also comes with an alignment applicator, for easier installation.
Here’s InvisibleShield with one of the most comprehensive screen protectors you can find for the Galaxy Note 20. It’s technically a film protector, yet it has been constructed using glass-like materials that make it more durable and hardier than the average film-based cover. One of its most impressive features is its self-healing nano-memory technology, which harnesses “smart” molecules to remove minor scratches. If that weren’t enough, the protector is shatter-resistant and capable of withstanding drops. It’s also appreciably thin, transparent, and responsive, retaining full compatibility with the Note 20’s in-screen fingerprint sensor.
Made of tempered glass and featuring the all-important 9H hardness rating, this Note 20 screen protector from Supershieldz outperforms many a more expensive alternative. It offers a considerable amount of scratch protection and will cope with knocks and falls, while the hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings will keep dirty fingerprints to a minimum. Supershieldz has also given it 2.5D rounded edges, so that it fits onto the screen a little more smoothly and is comfortable to use. The company also boasts that it provides 99% clarity and transparency, so it’s pretty much like using the Note 20 without a protector. Comes in a pack of two.
OtterBox makes some great cases, and its screen protectors are also pretty good too. This is a film-based protector made of polyurethane, which offers flexibility, transparency, and durability in equal measure. It will protect the Note 20 against scratches and dings, while it has also been designed to be smudge and fingerprint resistant. In addition, it promises 100% case compatibility, so if you already have a case for the phone, you needn’t worry that it will mess things up. Comes with an installation kit and a limited lifetime warranty.
With its lifetime replacement warranty, you may never need to buy another screen protector again if you pick IQ Shield’s film protector. It comes in a handy two-pack, with anti-bubble adhesive for the perfect application — and you get a squeegee and lint-less cloth in the pack, too. It’s a “smart” film, which means it has self-healing properties, so it looks as good as new for longer — and it won’t turn yellow over time either.
One of the main advantages of a film screen protector is its flexible form, providing excellent edge-to-edge coverage for your screen. This one from ArmorSuit also has UV protection against yellowing and self-repairing tech to repair minor scratches as well as repel dust, oil, and fingerprints. There’s no need to stress over bubbles when applying it either, as the wet installation method ensures a bubble-free finish, and you get installation spray, a microfiber cloth, and a squeegee to help you achieve the perfect result. Almost invisible once it’s applied, it’s ultra-tough and crystal clear — and it’s easy to remove, too, leaving no sticky residue behind.
Olixar is a name you can trust when it comes to phone protection, and this film screen protector comes in a handy twin pack, making it an excellent value. Providing invisible scratch protection for your screen, the crystal-clear film is super easy to apply, thanks to the included microfiber cloth and application card, which ensures you won’t be bothered by bubbles. This screen protector is fully compatible with the Note 20’s fingerprint reader, too.
If you’re not confident installing a tempered glass screen protector, pick up this one from Spigen to ensure the perfect fit. It comes with a handy tray to ensure your tempered glass protector is perfectly aligned — just place the tray over your phone, press the center, and the screen protector will adhere to your phone, providing full-screen coverage. You can even scan the QR code on the packaging to watch a handy installation video. This screen protector has a 9H hardness rating, it’s case-friendly, and it’s from a brand name you can trust for protection.
It may be pricey, but the Whitestone Dome Glass is one of the best covers you can buy for Samsung’s device. Part of the official Samsung Mobile Accessory Partnership Program (SMAPP), it has been designed to ensure maximum compatibility with the Note 20. Coming in a pack of two, it promises full ultrasonic fingerprint recognition, full-screen coverage, and full display clarity. Its special dome glass also blocks blue light, which can be harmful to the eyes in cases of excessive exposure. As with most other protectors on the list, it also comes with an easy installation kit.
LK is another recognizable and reliable brand for screen protectors, and their Galaxy Note 20 offering has the distinction of coming with a camera lens protector for the phone’s four rear lenses. The main screen protector is made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) film, giving it the flexibility and clarity that some other covers lack. LK claims the film has self-healing properties, enabling scratches and bubbles to disappear by themselves within 24 hours. It’s also made with a little extra space around the edges, to guarantee the protector can easily be used with cases. Helpfully, it comes as a pack of four, with two screen protectors and two lens protectors.
Ringke’s Dual Easy Wing Screen Protector for the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is another film-based protector, albeit with one difference from the other film covers on this list. Its polyester film (PET) comes with protruding wing sections on both sides, meaning that it wraps around the right and left edges of the Note 20, providing it with added protection in these areas. The protector is also very thin, retaining the screen’s clarity and functionality. It comes in a pack of two and also provides a dust-removal layer to remove debris from your Note 20 before applying it.
