The best Samsung Galaxy S20 screen protectors

With more processing power than the average laptop, a 64-megapixel camera, and a 6.2-inch Dynamic AMOLED display, you’ll want to keep your new Samsung Galaxy S20 as safe as possible. After spending your hard-earned cash on a new smartphone, the last thing you want is to have your phone screen scratched or damaged because you didn’t safeguard it. We’ve included both TPU and tempered glass protectors in our list of the best Samsung Galaxy S20 screen protectors, but it’s worth noting that tempered glass screen protectors can sometimes interfere with the S20’s ultrasonic fingerprint sensors — so if you use this feature, you might want to stick with the flexible film options.

It’s available in a pack of three, so you can share with your partner or family member, or keep a couple of spares aside for future use.

It comes bundled with an install frame and UV curing light for easy installation, provides superior protection for your screen, and is crystal clear. It even comes in a handy two-pack, so you can keep one aside for future use or give it to your other half.
