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.
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’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 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.
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.
