10 Best Galaxy S8 Screen Protectors

In this buying guide we’ll explain why you need a screen protector for the Galaxy S8 and share a list of the best Galaxy S8 screen protectors available. A good screen protector can prevent broken screens and keep your phones display looking like new.

While the Galaxy S8’s display is resilient it is far from scratch proof. Not to mention the curved edge can easily get damaged. That’s why we recommend getting a good screen protector for your Galaxy S8.

There are several styles of Galaxy S8 screen protectors, from cheap films to expensive tempered and curved glass. We’ve found some priced as low as $7.85, which is much cheaper than the $200 or more it will cost to replace a damaged display. You’ll need to spend about $50 to get a curved glass screen protector from big name brands.

While we recommend investing in a high-quality screen protector to protect your $800 phone, spending less than $10 on a cheap film is better than nothing, especially if you don’t keep it in a case. The most expensive Galaxy S8 screen protectors use reinforced and tempered glass. Tempered glass is scratch resistant and more durable than cheaper films.

However, some tempered glass protectors may not fit the curved edge of the glass perfectly, which we’ll address in the slideshow below. A few companies released 2nd generation models with a redesigned curved edge, which should help with the problems some users are facing. Until further notice though, we recommend a film screen protector.

Many choose to skip a screen protector after buying a case, but cases don’t protect your phone from keys in a purse or pocket. Instead of saving a few dollars get a screen protector and have some insurance against daily wear and tear.

Popular brands like Spigen, SuperShieldz, Moshi, ZAGG and others have protection worth buying. As more companies release screen protectors we’ll update this list. For now, choose one from our slideshow below. While you’re here consider checking out some of Samsung’s official accessories for the Galaxy S8

Moshi Ion Glass for Galaxy S8

 1 / 10
Moshi Ion Glass for Galaxy S8

First up is a real glass screen protector from Moshi, a trusted name in accessories. It's called the Moshi IonGlass for the Galaxy S8.

The Moshi IonGlass has a 9H rating on the hardness scale. This just means the glass is durable and will prevent scratches or getting shattered. Better yet, Moshi uses atomically-strengthened glass, which they state is stronger than tempered glass.

They cut each screen protector right from a curved piece of glass for precise coverage on the Galaxy S8. As a result, it will blend right in with the small bezels on the phone and look completely invisible. Moshi uses an extra coating to prevent fingerprints on the screen. The company claims its IonGlass is 40% thinner than most protectors on the market. Some reviews are positive, while others state the glass doesn't curve to fit the curved screen of the Galaxy S8. Meaning touch sensitivity could suffer. Read reviews before you buy. 

Buy it Now from Moshi for $39.99

    I’m sure TGP isn’t gonna work as of now. I had enough experience with the s7. TGP may chip off in a week or two. I’m settling with the gadgetshieldz. I have used them on S7 and now getting for GS8 Ordered one already Hope that it will reach before my S8.

    I do not think you all did your research before recommending these cases. Take a look at reviews online for them, now that the S8 is out. The tempered glass ones leave an air pocket beneath the protector which makes it almost impossible for the phone to pickup your touch near the corners, or when trying to text quickly.

      I did actually. Multiple companies have released 2nd generation redesigned glass screen protectors that should have a better fit.

      Prime example is ZAGG. Their new Glass Curve has an added layer of glass to make up for any differences to the curve, and they redid the glass molds with a “universal” sizing for the curved edge after testing over two dozen Galaxy S8 units and finding that even Samsung’s aren’t all the same… and have different degrees of angles. Their new product should hopefully be better.

      Personally, I’m using a Spigen Flex on my S8+.

    Terrible review. Completely out of touch with the reality that there simply is no tempered glass cover that works satisfactorily with the S8’s curved screen. They are a complete waste of money!

    Your best bet is to go with something comparable to an inexpensive thin plastic protector. Or simply enjoy the high quality Gorilla glass.

    I bought this one and it did not fit. I immediately emailed the company and they emailed back acknowledging that it doesn’t fit and agreed to give me a full refund. I would not recommend wasting time buying this product when the seller admits it is faulty.

    I agree. Tempered glasses are great for the flat devices but not so much the curved ones. They have been a total failure with the curved devices with limited success with the iPhones. I would suggest going with any of the wet install protectors like the Gadgetshieldz or Zagg invisibleshield as they would perfectly fit those curved infinity displays of the S8 and S8+ due to the thin nature of those films.

    Totally out of touch review. There is no glass protector on the market that works on the S8+ NONE. Even if one actually worked for a day or so as soon as you put a case on the phone you are done

    So it seems that your base of rating is amazon rating… have you even investigate those ratings ? In most cases those reviews are dated on same day or few dates, but still 10 five stars on one day another 5 stars two days later and another 10 days later. It’s clear to me that those came from Chinese review farms. And only real opinions are usually one star… Please be intelligent when posting those kind of pseudo tests.

    Did these companies pay you to leave these reviews. I haven’t found a real glass cover that has good ratings. Your first recommendation has a 2.5 star rating on a $40 item.
    Now I don’t trust your site either.

    I bought the Zagg tempered glass in May with my S8 plus, I have had to replace it 4 times already, the adhesive will not stay stuck to my phone. Sure they offer free replacements, but at 9.99 shipp9ng each time. I’ve been a Zagg customer for years and until this model was always very happy. Their curved glass protector is a huge waste of money.
