The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is a beast of a 6.8-inch phone that's both eye-catching and easy to use. However, the bigger the phone, the more likely that you could lose control over its bulk and accidentally send it crashing to an unfriendly sidewalk — especially when trying to operate it with one hand.
Most people won't think twice about getting a high-quality protective case for a phone as big — and expensive — as the Galaxy S22 Ultra, but many are more hesitant to buy an additional screen protector as well. A case may protect your phone if you drop it face down, but maybe not. Why take the chance when you can buy a screen shield that gives you a complete protective advantage? We've found a variety of screen protectors in both thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and glass, so whatever your style, your phone will emerge from all potential scrapes in pristine condition.

InvisibleShield Fusion Curve with D3O
- Resists odor-causing bacteria
- Compatible with fingerprint scanner
- Shock-absorption technology
- Quite expensive
InvisibleShield is a well-known name in this industry, offering robust protection for your phone. This screen protector stands out from the rest with its unique technology. The D3O molecules in the protector film lock together to disperse the energy hitting your device, which reduces the force of impact. It's also smartly designed to be compatible with fingerprint scanners, so you don't have to reset your security information after installing the film. The protector is also great for resisting odor-causing bacteria, keeping your phone clean and fresh for long.
Whitestone Dome Tempered Glass Screen Protector
- 9H hardness tempered glass
- Repairs former cracks and imperfections
- Comes with installation kit
- May affect fingerprint scanner
Whitestone's Dome tempered glass screen protector is a bit different from some other glass protectors. It's a liquid glass that disperses easily over your phone's screen, covering minor cracks and imperfections before hardening to create an impenetrable 9H hardness shield. This screen protector is easy to apply thanks to the included bubble-free installation kit, with a UV curing light and install frame. On the downside, although Whitestone says this protector won't affect the fingerprint scanner, there are plenty of consumer reviews to suggest otherwise.

Spigen is a brand you can trust for phone protection, and the NeoFlex screen protector is no slouch in that department. Pick this up, and you'll get two optical film screen protectors, installation spray, and a squeegee, helping you achieve a bubble-free installation. There's even a handy tutorial video to make sure you know how to install the protector correctly. This protector provides edge-to-edge coverage for the S22 Ultra's screen — though some reviews say it is actually too large to fit the screen — and doesn't affect touchscreen response or clarity either, so you won't even know it's there.
AmFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector
- Complete installation kit for easy installation
- Simple UV gel installation
- Oleophobic coating reduces fingerprint smudges
- Quite expensive
Though it costs a bit more than some other screen protectors on our list, this UV glass screen protector two-pack from AmFilm is worth every penny. You get two glass screen protectors in the pack, as well as a UV curing light, two UV gel drips, wet wipes, an installation tray, and everything else you need for the perfect installation. The protector itself is made from scratch-resistant glass, offering 99.9% ultra-clear HD transparency, plus protection against drops. There's an oleophobic coating to repel fingerprint smudges, too. We love that this protector comes with an application manual and demo video, great if you've never installed a screen protector before or don't feel confident about the process.
Supershieldz Film Screen Protector
- Handy two-pack
- Easy to install
- High-definition transparency TPU film
- Not as protective against scrapes and drops as a tempered glass protector
Supershieldz is a popular product for protecting many brands and sizes of smartphones for a reasonable price, and now it's available for the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra to protect your screen from daily scratches, dust, and scrapes. The high-definition transparency film screen cover, made from TPU with easy installation, leaves no residue when removed. It facilitates genuine touch sensitivity for a natural feel that provides flawless touchscreen accuracy and ensures maximum viewing resolution. The package includes two screen protectors.
Liquid Glass Screen Protector
- Compatible with all phones
- 9H hardness protection
- Invisible wipe-on screen protection
- Application can be tricky
Liquid Glass is an advanced technology — an invisible wipe-on screen protector that bonds to your smartphone's glass to offer enhanced scratch, moisture, and impact resistance. It's made of silica dioxide — microscopic particles of glass suspended in a liquid solution. That substance fills in the native imperfections of the screen to add an additional super-thin layer of glass that is highly scratch- and shatter-resistant and boosts its strength to the 9H hardness level. It provides an easy, bubble-free wipe-on application with a universal fit that's ideal for curved screens. It's compatible with a vast variety of mobile devices, phones, tablets, smartwatches, cameras, and touchscreens. It's also compatible with fingerprint readers and sensors. Liquid Glass is purely preventive, thought — it is not designed to fix broken screens or existing scratches or damage.
WRJ TPU Film Screen Protector + Camera Lens Protector
- Five-pack includes camera lens protectors
- Affordable price
- Self-healing technology repairs minor scratches
- Installation instructions aren't very clear
The easy-installation WRJ Screen Protector and matching camera protector perfectly align with the contours of the Galaxy S22 Ultra. This two-pack is made of flexible TPU material that's highly transparent and super thin for a real-touch feeling and high sensitivity. Its self-healing technology helps eliminate minor scratches on the film by repairing itself and significantly reduces dust, oil, and fingerprint smudges so your phone stays in pristine condition.
Imbzbk Privacy Screen Protector and Camera Protectors
- Includes tempered glass camera protectors
- Privacy film keeps personal information safe
- Darkens the screen
- Difficult to install
This two-pack set of screen protectors includes non-glass privacy protectors and tempered glass camera protectors. If you're out and about in public or using public transportation, the privacy screen protector ensures that your phone screen is visible only to you to keep personal information safe from strangers. The screen protector is made of premium TPU that covers the curved edges of the Galaxy S22 Ultra, providing maximum protection against damage. Nano-elastic material shields the screen from impact and drops. With high-response haptic touch technology, the thin 0.16mm design supports ultrasonic screen fingerprint with a fast unlocking speed and smooth touch. The company recommends re-recording fingerprints because the same finger is recorded at two different angles to capture a fuller range.
The black tempered glass camera lens protector features nano electrostatic automatic absorption tech with easy installation and will not budge when removing the case. With up to 9H hardness tempered glass, it protects the camera from scratches, while a fingerprint-resistant coating keeps lenses clean. Light transmittance is nearly 100% and compatible with night shooting.

This one's a bit pricey, but you get three screen protectors in a pack, making it a bit more affordable overall. Each one is made from 9H tempered glass, so your phone is easily protected against bumps and scratches. It's also said to last longer than plastic films, so you don't have to spend money replacing it too often. Installation is also fairly easy, as the pack comes with an anti-overflow installation tray.
