LK Film Screen Protector
- Oleophobic layer repels fingerprints
- Self-healing technology recovers from minor scratches
- Auto-alignment tray for installation
- Installation can be tricky

You'll hardly notice you're using a screen protector thanks to the 99% transparency, and you get three protectors in the pack, so you can keep a couple as spares or share them with friends or family. This protector also leaves space around the edges of your screen, ensuring it's compatible with most cases. Although it comes with an installation video and auto-alignment tray, some reviews say it's tricky to install.
UniqueMe Tempered Glass Screen Protector
- Includes two screen protectors and two camera lens protectors
- Ultra-thin tempered glass
- Easy installation frame included
- May not work with fingerprint reader
- Flash flare with the camera protector gives photos and videos a blue tinge
If you're looking for protection for your phone's screen and camera in one handy package, this is the screen protector deal for you.

The screen protector won't affect touchscreen responsiveness and protects against scratches, scrapes, and drops. However, there are some reports it doesn't work with the fingerprint reader. Some reviews also suggest that the camera lens protector causes flash flare, giving photos and videos a blue hue. For the price, this is still excellent value for money, though.

Tech21 Impact Glass
- Tough tempered glass
- Antimicrobial layer reduces bacteria
- Comes with alignment frame for easy installation
- Quite expensive
Here's a Galaxy S21 Plus screen protector that's almost literally as hard as nails. It's made of tempered glass treated to an anti-scratch finish, so you should be able to abuse it with your keys and dinner utensils without suffering much in the way of marks. Tech21 has also coated it with an anti-microbial layer, something that will reduce bacteria by as much as 99.99%. It comes with an alignment frame, so you can fit it precisely without creating any bubbles.
Spigen Neo Flex Solid Screen Protector
- Compatible with all Spigen-brand cases
- Self-healing technology reduces scratches and marks
- Wet installation for zero bubbles
- May not be compatible with other case brands
If you've already gone ahead and purchased a case for your S21 Plus that's made by Spigen, you can now buy this screen protector, also from Spigen. The company has tested it to ensure that it's compatible with all Spigen-brand S21 Plus cases, so you can rest assured that it will fit snugly. Aside from that, the protector itself includes self-healing materials that gradually reduce minor scratches and marks over time, keeping your screen looking nice and shiny.
OtterBox Clearly Protected Film Screen Protector
- Super-slim film protector
- Impressively strong
- Comes with limited lifetime warranty
- Tempered glass offers better drop protection
Made of polyurethane-based film, this protector from OtterBox is highly transparent and responsive, yet it's also impressively strong. It's designed to offer heightened resistance against scratches, scuffs, and smudges, while its thinness means that it's compatible with the vast majority of cases currently available for the S21. This thinness also makes it one of the best protectors to go for if you want to ensure the highest possible clarity. It also comes with a limited lifetime warranty, so you should be able to replace it easily with OtterBox in the unlikely event it doesn't do its job.
InvisibleShield GlassFusion VisionGuard+ with D3O
- PET-based hybrid glass screen protects against scratches and drops
- D30 technology for added strength
- Eyesafe blue-light filter
- Antimicrobial coating
If you want the best possible protection for the Galaxy S21 Plus' screen, then this is probably the pick of the bunch. It may not be cheap, but the InvisibleShield GlassFusion VisionGuard+ with D3O crams in pretty much every feature you could ever want from a protector. To begin with, you have a PET-based hybrid glass screen that will protect your phone's display against everyday damage, yet it has been enhanced by InvisibleShield's D30 technology, which reportedly makes it around 20% stronger than comparable models. It also incorporates an Eyesafe layer that filters out HEV blue light, which can disturb your sleep and even harm your eyes in extreme cases. Lastly, the cover includes antimicrobial materials, interrupting the growth of odor-causing bacteria.
ESR Liquid Skin Screen Protector
- Practically invisible polymer film
- Compatible with most cases
- Self-healing technology repairs light scratches
- Handy three-pack
- Application can be tricky
Here's an ultra-thin screen protector that's as discreet as possible, reducing the chances you'll even notice you have a protector installed. It's made of a flexible polymer film that maximizes transparency and responsiveness while also providing a good level of protection against thrills and spills. Its thinness means you can use it with pretty much any case out there without worrying that the protector will stop the case from fitting snugly on the phone. Perhaps its most impressive feature is that it includes a self-healing material that repairs light scratches and small bubbles over time, although another key selling point is that it fully supports the S21 Plus' fingerprint scanner. Sold in a pack of three.
PanzerGlass Case Friendly Screen Protector
- Anti-shatter film for drop protection
- Antibacterial coating
- Oleophobic coating repels fingerprints
- Compatible with most cases
- Not the cheapest option
This is an exceedingly strong and sturdy screen protector that will guard your Galaxy S21 Plus against almost everything you'd expect a protector to guard against. It's made from chemically reinforced glass that has been combined with an underlying anti-shatter film, so even if you drop it from a great height, the phone's actual screen won't break into pieces. The protector also makes use of an antibacterial coating that slows the growth of most bacteria (although it offers no protection against pesky viruses). This coating is also oleophobic, so there will be a minimum of fingerprint stains and smudges on your S21 Plus' screen. One other key feature is that, despite being exceedingly durable, the protector is only 0.4mm thick, so it will remain fairly unnoticeable.
Olixar Tempered Glass Screen Protector
- 9H hardness tempered glass
- Excellent sensitivity and responsiveness
- Easy, bubble-free installation
- May interfere with fingerprint reader
This tempered glass screen protector has a 9H hardness rating, the highest possible. This means you can scrape it with keys and knives to your heart's content without significantly damaging it. At the same time, it's also pretty thin at 0.26mm, something that enables it to provide an impressive 95% light-penetration ratio. Its transparency also equates to a class-leading level of sensitivity and responsiveness, with the phone's fingerprint scanner operating as normal with the protector applied. Olixar also promises bubble-free installation, while the protector's under-coating allows you to remove it easily should you need to.
Whitestone Dome Tempered Glass Screen Protector
- Patented liquid glass provides edge-to-edge coverage
- Repairs existing minor screen cracks and marks
- Excellent transparency and responsiveness
- Very expensive
Here's another option for anyone who wants to go all out on obtaining the best possible Galaxy S21 Plus screen protector money can buy. Yes, it's expensive, but it offers the highest level of protection while also ensuring full transparency and full compatibility with the S21 Plus' ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. It's made using Whitestone's patented liquid glass, which hardens after you install it to provide an airtight edge-to-edge shield for your phone. It also repairs minor cracks and marks after installation, something most protectors simply don't and can't offer. At the same time, the level of screen transparency and responsiveness is among the very best out there.
