The best Samsung Galaxy S21 FE screen protectors for 2022

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, launched at CES 2022, is designed as a fun, somewhat budget-friendly, high-end phone. Starting with a price of $100 less than the company's flagship handset, the Fan Edition (FE) costs $700. It has the same processor as the more expensive model but features a larger screen, triple-lens camera, extensive 5G support, and a massive 4,500mAh battery. The 6.4-inch Full HD+ Dynamic AMOLED display has a 120Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch response, and an optical fingerprint scanner.

However, the screen's durability is a point of concern. It's on the large side, and even if you wrap a case around the phone, you'll want to protect your handset with a protective cover over the glass. Here are some of the best screens available for this model.
