5 Best Galaxy S7 Screen Protectors

The Samsung Galaxy S7 has a big beautiful 5.1-inch display with a premium durable and waterproof design, but that doesn’t mean users won’t need a case or screen protector. Now that the S7 has been available for a few months, users are looking for some of the best Galaxy S7 screen protectors. Below are a few excellent options to protect your shiny new phone, including the newest glass from ZAGG.

On February 21st Samsung unveiled its new smartphones for 2016. A new and improved Galaxy S7, and a bigger S7 Edge with a curved display similar to last year. They offer tons of improvements over the Galaxy S6, and buyers need accessories.

Screen protectors are something not everyone chooses to use, but it can save your phone in the case of an accidental drop. And while curved glass for the Galaxy S7 Edge is more fragile, users with the regular model will still want protection. Below we explain why users should get a glass Galaxy S7 screen protector, and suggest some great choices.

While we’ve already detailed some excellent official accessories for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge for buyers, as well as 12 exciting cases, users who just bought the Galaxy S7 or will soon will want all the accessories they need now, or ahead of time. With that, you’ll want one of the tempered glass screen protectors below.

Out of the box the Galaxy S7 is very durable. Samsung’s added a scratch-resistant and strong Gorilla Glass 4 technology to both the front and the back, but that also means a drop could crack glass on either side. It’s also IP68 dust and water-resistant, so it’s far more durable than last year. That said, screens still get damaged, and need to be protected. We’d prefer the back to simply be aluminum with no glass, but then it wouldn’t look nearly as nice. Maybe we can expect that from the Galaxy S8 next year.

When it comes to protecting a smartphone, the biggest concern is usually the display. Screens are one of the first things to get damaged on a smartphone, and are often broken due to drops, scratched from keys in a pocket or purse and many other scenarios. Luckily for owners there are multiple different screen protectors worth considering, and more will be released soon. You don’t want to buy those “HD Clear” covers or film that are made of a rubber-like material that leave a weird orange-peel feel and mess with the texture while swiping the screen.

Rather than get a cheap regular screen protector that comes in a 3-pack from a carrier store, select something good. If it’s cheap, it probably won’t do that great of a job protecting your phone. As a result screen protectors now come in the same strengthened and hardened “tempered” glass that the phone has. So it feels the same, looks great, and if it gets scratched just take it off. That’s what we’ll be focusing on here today, not those cheap covers no one likes.
