The best Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus screen protectors

A screen protector is a simple accessory that can prevent damage to your smartphone screen, protecting it from scratches, dirt, fingerprints, and humidity.

If you own a Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus, we recommend using a screen protector to protect the edge-to-edge display. You can choose between film and tempered glass screen protectors, but it’s worth noting that some of the glass protectors can affect the S20 Plus ultrasonic fingerprint sensor — something to bear in mind if you use it regularly.

We’ve rounded up some of the very best screen protectors for your Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus available right now.

LK 2 Pack Screen Protector

Here’s a film-based screen protector for anyone who wants a little more transparency and sensitivity than you might get from the average glass protector. Made of TPU, it’s strong enough to guard against most everyday damage, with the protector using self-healing technology to repair minor scratches and also remove small bubbles. Its thinness means that the S20 Plus’ fingerprint scanner works perfectly well, as does the touchscreen itself. It comes in a pack of two and also provides two camera lens protectors, just in case you’re worried about the phone’s lenses picking up some stray damage.

ArmorSuit MilitaryShield Screen Protector

ArmorSuit’s MilitaryShield screen protector for the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus is one of the best all-arounders you can find. Constructed from scratch-proof film, it boasts military-grade protection for the S20 Plus, capable of withstanding cracks and other breakages. It makes use of self-repairing materials, which will remove any minor marks and scuffs all by itself. Being a film-based protector, it’s also very thin and transparent, so you’ll have a hard time remembering that you’ve applied a protector. It has been laser cut to offer very precise coverage for the S20 and should be compatible with pretty much every case out there.

Whitestone Dome Glass Screen Protector

Whitestone manufactures some of the most rugged screen protectors, and its effort for the Galaxy S20 Plus is no exception. Made of high-quality tempered glass, it will save your phone’s display from the vast majority of damage likely to fall its way. It also harnesses what Whitestone describes as “liquid glass,” meaning that when it’s first applied to the S20 Plus’ screen, it will repair any pre-existing cracks and scuffs (so long as they aren’t too severe). This is impressive enough, but the protector also covers 100% of the phone’s screen, meaning that there’s very little chance of its outer edges picking up a knock or dent.

Olixar Glass Screen Protector

If you want comprehensive protection without having to spend a minor fortune, then this protector from Olixar may be just what you’ve been waiting for. It’s built with tempered glass carrying a 9H hardness rating, the toughest available, so it will resist scratches from household metal objects such as keys and knives. It’s also only 0.3mm thick, so it retains pretty much all of the brightness, clarity, and sensitivity of the S20 Plus’ display. Full compatibility with the phone’s fingerprint sensor is preserved, and it’s curved around the side in order to ensure full coverage.

Spigen NeoFlex Screen Protector

This specific form of application aims to ensure you won’t have trouble with any bubbles once the protector is on.

That may sound like a lot of items to juggle; Fortunately, the kit also comes with an installation manual so you can be sure everything will fit correctly and smoothly the first time.

The best Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 screen protectors: 6 best to buy now
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 standing upright with its main display turned on.

Folding phones are the future, and flip smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 are likely to be the folding form factor of choice for many people. It's not hard to see why, as Samsung's newest flip phone has everything we loved about the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 while adding a larger outer screen and a hinge that finally folds completely flat. It's a stunning piece of hardware, and the displays are absolutely the linchpin of what makes it great — whether we're talking about the internal folding screen, or the outer display that's now much larger and can do so much more.

But two screens comes with their own hazards, specifically, the risk of breakages. While the inner screen is relatively protected while folded, accidents do happen, and they can lead to an expensive repair bill. Thankfully, screen protectors exist to add more protection to your valuable smartphone. Here are six of the best Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 screen protectors you can buy right now. Also, make sure you double up on your protection by adding one of the best Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 cases as well.

The best Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 cases: 8 best ones right now
Photo of official Samsung cases for the Galaxy Z Flip 5.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 was revealed at Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2023, and it shows that Samsung is still serious about a foldable future. Brand new to the Flip range this year is a revamped outer screen, with a big 3.4-inch size and the ability to do even more than it could before. While you're still going to want to open the phone to do most of your business (or just scroll through Instagram), the new outer screen means you can stay on top of your notifications while keeping your phone folded and safe.

But as cool as all that is, accidents still happen, and even the best smartphones can't withstand a drop onto concrete without at least some damage. While keeping your phone folded and using the outer screen can help to keep it safe from hazards, the outside can still be chipped, cracked, or even shattered. That's where cases come in. Here are the best Galaxy Z Flip 5 cases you can buy right now.
