The impressive Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has a big and beautiful 5.5-inch display with curved glass on both sides of the screen. Now that the phone has been available for awhile, many users are looking for some of the best Galaxy S7 Edge screen protectors. Below are a few excellent options to protect your shiny new phone.
On February 21st Samsung unveiled its new smartphones for 2016. A new and improved Galaxy S7, and a bigger Galaxy S7 Edge with a curved display similar to last year. They offer tons of improvements over the Galaxy S6, and buyers are looking for accessories.
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 doesn’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 exciting cases, users who recently bought the phone from carriers during recent deals are looking to protect the display.
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 last year. 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, and more will be released soon. 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 promise to have durable tempered glass screen protectors with precision cutouts and designs soon. And this week Zagg started finally shipping their “Glass Curve” protectors for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Some of the options below don’t have the best reviews, which is why we’d still recommend waiting for better brands, or trying out Zagg’s latest from our slideshow below.
