These are the best Samsung Galaxy S20 screen protectors so far

The Galaxy S20 comes with its own plastic screen protector, but it’s not of great quality. If you want the best possible experience, you’ll want a better quality screen protector that also works with the ultrasonic screen protector. Here are the best Galaxy S20 screen protectors available on the market.

American-made

ArmorSuit MilitaryShield Galaxy S20

Staff pick

This oleophobic film protector comes in a compact roll and uses a wet application to avoid bubbles and misalignments. ArmorSuit is also one of the few screen protectors made in the USA if you prefer to buy domestic.

Name brand protection

InvisibleShield Ultra Clear+

InvisibleShield is very proud of its work, but beyond the scratch and shatter resistance, there’s another critical reason to consider the Ultra Clear+. There’s an anti-microbial treatment built-in, helping keep your phone from getting you sick from the germs that hide on our phones.

The gold standard

Whitestone Dome Glass (2-Pack)

whitestone-dome-glass-s20-glass-2-pack.j

Glass screen protectors can be more finicky with the Galaxy S20 because of the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, but the UV curing system Whitestone uses is one we know works. It’s expensive, to be sure, but it also holds well to the phone and lasts a long time.

Case-friendly

Caseology Film (2-Pack)

Caseology is better known for its cases, but it also makes some perfectly good screen protectors. When you buy screen protectors from a case maker, you can be sure that they won’t interfere or peel up when used with most light and medium cases.

Flexible film

UniqueMe TPU Film Screen Protectors (2-Pack)

These film screen protectors from UniqueMe aren’t as rugged as tempered glass variants, but they offer a great value. Not only do you get two protectors for the S20’s display, but UniqueMe also includes two protectors for the S20’s rear camera housing.

What a deal

DeltaShield TPU Film Screen Protector (3-Pack)

deltashield-film-screen-protector-galaxy

DeltaShield understands that you shouldn’t have to spend an arm and a leg just to protect your Galaxy S20. This three-pack of TPU film protectors offer 99.9% clarity when applied to the phone, have self-healing technology to remove unwanted scratches discretely, and offer ample durability in a sleek and thin profile. For the price, it’s hard to beat it.

UV application

amFilm Ultra Glass Screen Protector (2-Pack)

amfilm-ultra-glass-screen-protector-gala

If you like the idea of the Whitestone screen protector but want something a little easier on your wallet, the amFilm Ultra Glass Screen Protector is a phenomenal purchase. It uses a UV gel application to ensure a highly precise and accurate fit, and once applied, it works with the fingerprint sensor, doesn’t reduce touchscreen sensitivity, and is extremely protective.

Easy installation

Tauri TPU Screen Protector (2-pack)

Installing a screen protector isn’t always an easy task, which is why we’re thankful for this protector from Tauri. You’re getting two TPU film protectors for one great price, with installation being a breeze thanks to an included alignment tool. You also get two protectors for the rear camera housing!

Practice makes perfect

ESR TPU Screen Protector (3-pack)

esr-tpu-screen-protector-galaxy-s20-pres

This flexible film screen protector is designed to protect the curved edges of the S20’s display. Technically this is a two-pack with an extra screen protector to practice with. Of course, if you install it perfectly on the first try, then you’ve got two spares, which is nice.

Film screen protectors will serve you best

As we learned last year with the Galaxy S10, tempered glass screen protectors have a nasty habit of interfering with Samsung’s ultrasonic fingerprint sensors, so you’ll want to keep that in mind. We’ve included a mix of both tempered glass and TPU film options, but if that in-display fingerprint sensor is a key feature for you, you’re best to stick with the flexible film screen protectors.

For early adopters, our top recommendation is the ArmorSuit MilitaryShield. The wet install process leaves more changes for fixing any mistake or misalignment during installation. Plus, the self-healing film should buff out small scratches and fingernail dents, so you don’t have to replace it as often.

For tempered glass, I’ll recommend the Whitestone Dome Glass because its UV-curing system makes it less prone to problems with the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor.

No matter which protector you choose, you can take comfort in the fact that your top-notch Android phone is now safer than ever.
