The best Samsung Galaxy Note 20 screen protectors

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. If you’ve opted for the Note 20’s bigger brother, you’ll find we’ve also chosen some of the best screen protectors for the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.

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.

Tech21 Impact Shield

Tech21 Impact Shield for Samsung Galaxy Note 20

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.

Zagg InvisibleShield Ultra Clear+

Zagg InvisibleShield Ultra Clear+ for Samsung Galaxy Note 20

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.

Supershieldz Tempered Glass Screen Protector

Supershieldz Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Samsung Galaxy Note 20

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 Film Screen Protector

OtterBox Film Screen Protector for Samsung Galaxy Note 20

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.

IQ Shield Screen Protector

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.

ArmorSuit MilitaryShield Screen Protector

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 Film Screen Protector

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.

Spigen Glas.tR Platinum Tempered-Glass Screen Protector

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.

Whitestone Dome Glass Screen Protector

Whitestone Galaxy Note 20 Screen Protector

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 Screen Protector and Camera Lens Protector

LK [2 Pack] Screen Protector + [2 Pack] Camera Lens Protector for Samsung Galaxy Note 20

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 Dual Easy Wing Screen Protector

Ringke Dual Easy Wing Screen Protector Designed for Galaxy Note 20

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.

The Google Pixel Fold may not be as expensive as you thought
Alleged renders of the Google Pixel Fold in black.

Google’s long-in-development foldable phone — the Pixel Fold — is reportedly eyeing a late June launch. A recent leak predicted that the Pixel Fold will hit the European shelves priced at 1,700 Euros, which equates to roughly $1,800 based on current conversion rates. That’s not easy to digest, especially for a first-gen foldable phone and considering Google’s own shaky history with its Pixel hardware and software.
But it appears that the Pixel Fold’s price won’t be inexplicably exorbitant at all. Leaker Yogesh Bear shared on Twitter that the foldable phone could actually cost anywhere between $1,300 and $1,500. Assuming that turns out to be true, the Pixel Fold could undercut the Samsung Galaxy Fold 4 and its successor by a healthy $500.

In fact, such an asking price would put the Pixel Fold in roughly the same ballpark as the higher storage configurations of phones like the Galaxy S23 Ultra and Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro Max. Of course, Google won’t be able to match the asking price of foldables from Chinese brands, but it would at least look competitive in the Western markets.
Now, a price of around $1,300-1,500 makes a lot of sense. First, the biggest deterrent for foldable phones is their high asking price. There’s a reason Samsung managed to sell bucketloads of its flip-style foldable phones because they cost nearly half vis-a-vis the phone-tablet hybrids in the Galaxy Z Fold series.

Google Pixel 8: all the latest rumors and what we want to see
Google Pixel 8 leaked render.

The Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are on their way. Google's fallen in a pretty reliable release pattern for Pixel phones, meaning we can safely expect a new lineup of flagship Pixels each year. In 2023, that means the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro.

The Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are two excellent devices -- possibly two of the best smartphones Google has ever made. But while they have some serious strengths, a number of problems and missed opportunities drag both phones down. This wouldn't be a problem if the competition was standing still, but it's not. The Apple iPhone 14 Pro refreshed the iPhone design for the first time in years, and the recently released Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is quite possibly one of the best smartphones ever created. So what's a humble Pixel to do?

Qualcomm has taken the wraps off its Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2, the next generation of its midrange mobile platform. The new chip is designed to deliver powerful entertainment experiences and performance gains to a broader range of smartphones.

The new platform is an evolution of last year’s Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, which was already a leap beyond the older Snapdragon 700 series it replaced. It began closing the gap with the premium Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 — a trend that continues with this year’s Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2.
