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.
