Spigen Steinheil Ultra Nano Clear Screen Protector ($14)
Spigen’s Ultra Nano isn’t the most heavy-duty screen protector out there, but it looks great and doesn’t dramatically interfere with touch-screen responsiveness. Like many screen protectors on the market, the 50-micron thick strip is hard coated with anti-UV ray protection to help deter electromagnetic rays and protect your screen from the various woes it will surely encounter. The adhesive is strong to prevent lifting around the edges and the additional oleophobic coating helps keep annoying fingerprints and smudges to a minimum. Be sure to check out Spigen’s Ultra Crystal screen protector if you’re looking for something with a little more resilience.
Zagg invisibleSHIELDs ($15-$30)
Zagg’s award-winning invisibleSHIELD lineup is a solid screen protector choice with a variety of options to choose from. The screen protectors feature 0.2-mm thick strips that cover your Galaxy S3’s screen and frame, offering a bit more coverage and protection from the elements. Zagg’s Nano-Memory technology adds durability, maintains clarity, and reduces glare. The screen protectors vary in price by whichever model you choose, whether it is the original version or the EXTREME, but the style and fit remains the same. And who can complain about a lifetime guarantee?
Tech Armor HD Clear Screen Protector ($4)
Tech Armor’s screen protector proves yet again that you don’t have to spend a fortune to obtain peace of mind. The company made a point to emphasis its “no compromise on clarity” approach to the film, adding screen protection that remains clear and maintains the responsiveness of your iPhone’s display. It’s not top-notch, but the price is incredibly affordable and the product comes in a pack of three just in case.
Skinomi TechSkin Screen Protector ($12)
Working on a tight budget? Skonmi’s TechSkin screen protector has got you covered. The film does a decent job of protecting your screen from any typical wear-and-tear it may face without breaking the bank. The first layer of film is scratch resistant and protects your iPhone from harmful UV rays that can lead to yellowing. The second layer gives you a bit more puncture protection. It may be listed at $12, but you can usually score the screen protector at various online retailers for around $10.
XtremeGuard Screen Protector ($5)
XtremeGuard’s screen protector is another ultra-thin option that comes at an affordable price. The durable full-body wrap protects your phone from the typical wear-and-tear it may face while retaining the transparency and brightness of your phone at the same time.
