Aside from the upcoming Galaxy S10, Samsung’s Galaxy S9 is still one of the best looking phones on the market. As a result, you’ll want to keep its curved screen safe with the best Galaxy S9 screen protector. We’ll explain the different types available, how they work, then suggest a few to keep your screen safe.
Samsung makes durable phones but they’re far from scratch-proof. Additionally, the curved edges are more prone to damage than traditional displays. Which is why we recommend a durable tempered glass screen protector or even a cheap film.
We’ve found Galaxy S9 screen protectors priced under $8, and others for $12, which is much cheaper than the $200+ plus it costs to replace a damaged screen. Highly reputable brands cost upwards of $50.
Honestly, spending $7-8 on a cheap film is better than nothing, especially if you don’t keep your phone in a case. Then, more expensive protection uses chemically reinforced and tempered glass similar to what’s already on your screen. They’re extremely durable and our first recommendation. Tempered glass is both scratch and shatter-resistant. If it does crack or break, the screen is usually safe underneath.
These days you can get a tempered glass Galaxy S9 screen protector for under $10, so it’s the best choice over a film. However, it’s important to mention that some protectors don’t perfectly fit the curve, causing touchscreen sensitivity issues. We’ll help you avoid those. And instead, suggest a new breed of Galaxy S9 protection that comes with UV lights to “cure” the screen protector to your phone.
Basically, if you want to keep your Galaxy S9 safe you’ll want a screen protector from a brand we know, use, and trust. Or you’ll want to buy a UV light and easy installation tray so nothing goes wrong.
Even if you use a case, we still suggest getting a screen protector. That’s because a case won’t protect your phone in a purse, from a pocket full of keys, or against life’s daily hazards. So, consider S9 protection from popular brands like Otterbox, Tech21, Zagg, Spigen, or WhiteStone’s Dome Glass UV process. Choose one, then come back and read these 35 Galaxy S9 tips & tricks.
