A few years ago, a device with a 6.9-inch display would have been considered a tablet, but times have changed, and the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is able to rock such a massive screen thanks in large part to the continued drive to do away with phone bezels. So while the S20 Ultra’s 6.9-inch display is still massive and requires two hands to properly use, it’s not crazy to imagine using it as your daily driver.
What a display it is too. Samsung has outdone itself yet again with the Dynamic AMOLED 2X display. Colors are vibrant and bright, while the dark, inky blacks are deep enough to dive into. It’s a stunning screen — and it’s well worth protecting. A broken screen is something every smartphone owner has to deal with at some point in their life, and it’s never fun. Thankfully, the worst can be avoided with a good screen protector. Here are some of the best Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra screen protectors you can buy.
Please note: The S20 Ultra’s ultrasonic fingerprint scanner can be affected by some screen protectors, and we’ve highlighted where manufacturers have confirmed their products work with the in-display sensor. However, we have not been able to test them all yet. We’ll be updating this article with details once they become available.
Whitestone Dome Glass — Twin Pack
It’s incredibly expensive, but spend some time with the Whitestone Dome Glass protector and you’ll see why it’s so highly-priced. Whitestone’s protector is made from tough tempered glass that bends to match your phone’s curves, ensuring complete protection. But the real magic is found in the installation process. Rather than using a normal adhesive, Whitestone uses a liquid adhesive with a curing process to ensure a tight fit that’s also protective. The cured liquid between the protector and your device means there’s no loss of sensitivity or clarity, and it also means the protector works perfectly with the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor in the S20 Ultra. An extra protector in the package helps to justify the high price.
Ringke Dual Easy Wing
The Ringke Dual Easy screen protector makes installing a screen protector as easy as counting to four. The company introduces a number-ordered application process that simply requires you to place the protector on your phone, lift the tabs off, and wipe down to your satisfaction. The Dual Easy Wing also introduces flaps on the side that wrap around the curved edges of your S20 Ultra, ensuring a tight fit on the device. Underneath the layers of transparent PET film is a liquid solution that washes off any dust and debris on the screen instead of using the traditional dust stickers. For $14, you get a pack of two screen protectors, and considering the fool-proof installation process, you’ll most likely be saving the second for the future or a friend.
Tauri 3-Pack Screen Protector
If you’re not looking to spend much money on a screen protector — especially after the $1,400 for your new phone — then the Tauri screen protector is your savior. At only $9, you get a pack of three case-friendly, anti-bubble, TPU screen protectors. The protectors are just as thin as the one that comes preinstalled on your S20 Ultra so they’ll protect your phone from scratches and scuffs without adding much weight. The thinness of the film also helps maintain the clear and vibrant QHD+ display of your phone. While the Tauri screen protector won’t guard your S20 Ultra from drops, it’s a solid option for the price.
AmFilm Ultra Glass
Not all UV light-installed screen protectors leave a dent in your wallet. The AmFilm Ultra Glass screen protector follows a similar installation process as the Whitestone Dome. Included in the package is an application tray, a tube of gel solution, a UV light, and the rest of the essentials like a microfiber cloth. There are small dots strategically placed throughout the screen protector to ensure an even spread of the gel adhesive. The ones located at the bottom center of the glass allow your ultrasonic fingerprint sensor to function underneath. At a lower price, the AmFilm Ultra Glass offers a similar experience to its competitors while adding an extra screen protector in the box.
Spigen Neo Flex — Twin Pack
Glass protectors aren’t for everyone, and if you love a slim, sleek fit over the hard protection glass affords, a film protector is a great way to go. Spigen’s Neo Flex comes in a twin pack — so you have a free replacement — and it’s made from flexible film, so it curves to cover your whole display. It’s compatible with Spigen’s cases, making it a great complement to your protection, and has self-healing technology that combats fingerprints and minor scratches. Installation involves spraying a wet solution onto the screen protector, which may seem a little odd initially. But let it dry, and that solution provides a strong and close bond to your device. This is a good protector at a great price.
InvisibleShield Ultra VisionGuard+
Smartphone displays produce blue light, which could potentially damage your eyesight over long periods and make it harder to sleep at night. There are a number of ways to combat blue light, but buying a screen protector built to protect your eyes is one of the easiest. This protector comes with the Eyesafe layer, which filters out blue light without distorting the color of your display. It feels just like your device’s screen and comes with anti-microbial and self-healing finishes to make sure it stays clean and clear throughout your use. It’s very expensive for a film protector though, and there are definitely cheaper ways to protect your eyes. But if you can afford it, this is an excellent protector.
Tech21 Impact Shield Anti-Scratch
Even if you handle them with care, you can’t always avoid those little scratches you get on your screen—but the Tech21 Impact Protector can help. It’s made from flexible film, but that film has been reinforced with three scratch-resistant protective layers. Because it’s film, it curves around your device’s display, and it’s extremely thin too. It also has anti-microbial properties, and installation is easy thanks to the included alignment applicator. All those extra features don’t come cheap—if you buy from Tech21, you’re looking at a sales price of around $30. Also, glass is generally better at resisting scratches, meaning the only reason to have this is if you don’t like the thickness of glass. But if that describes you, this is a great choice.
IQ Shield Matte Film — Twin Pack
Most people expect their screen protectors to fight off dirt or dust, but with this one, you’ll also get protection from sun glare. If you’re outside often, you may have found difficulties reading your screen in bright sunshine. This protector from IQ Shield comes with a special matte finish to cut out glare, making it easier to see your phone’s screen under strong lights. It’s also quite protective, as it’s made from durable, military-grade film that’s designed to adhere to the curved edges of your device. It uses a wet installation method for a close fit to your device’s display, and it’s super cheap. Best of all, there’s another protector in the package, so you have a spare for replacement or for a friend.
