One question we keep getting is regarding the curved 5.5-inch screen of the Galaxy S7 Edge, and if users can add a screen protector. More importantly, tempered glass screen protectors rather than a film that won’t last. The answer is yes, there are Galaxy S7 Edge screen protectors, and we have some great options to choose from below.
While we’ve already detailed some excellent official accessories for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge for buyers, as well as some of the best cases, users who recently bought one are looking to protect their screen.
Out of the box the new Galaxy S7 Edge 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 prior models. That said, screens still get damaged, and need to be protected.
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 Galaxy S7 Edge buyers there are multiple different screen protectors worth considering. Some are simply “HD Clear” covers, but curved to wrap around the sides, which is exactly what buyers will need. Read on for a few suggestions.
Popular brands like Spigen or ZAGG have durable real glass screen protectors too. There are almost endless options for customers. Some of the choices below don’t have the best reviews, due to the curved glass making installs difficult. It takes patience to get it right. Don’t worry though, we’ve found some viable alternatives that all users can buy.
