9 Best Galaxy S9 Screen Protectors

Published

on

These are the best Galaxy S9 screen protectors to keep your display looking nice, new, and scratch-free. Even with the curved glass display, you can still use screen protectors. We’ll explain the different types, what they each have to offer, then recommend the best options available.

Both of these phones are plenty durable, but they’re far from scratch-proof. Additionally, the curved edges are more prone to damage than traditional displays. And while Samsung is using thicker glass than they had on the Galaxy S8, you still want protection.

There are a few different styles of screen protectors for the Galaxy S9, and knowing which one to buy is important. Whether that’s a cheap film or more expensive tempered glass. We’ve found some priced under $8, and others for $12, which is much cheaper than the $150+ plus it costs to replace a damaged screen. Highly reputable brands cost upwards of $50.

Before we begin, it’s important to mention that curved screens aren’t the easiest to protect. Some protectors don’t fit the curve right or cause touchscreen sensitivity issues. Those are the ones we’ll avoid. That’s why we recommend new Galaxy S9 screen protectors that come with UV lights that “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.

With that all said, anything is better than nothing. Even spending $7-8 on a cheap film is better than going naked, especially if you don’t keep it in a case. The more expensive models use chemically reinforced and tempered glass though, which is why they’re our first choice. Tempered glass is both scratch and shatter-resistant. If it does crack or break, the screen is typically safe underneath.

Even if you buy 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. Even if you’re careful, accidents can and will happen. So, consider popular brands like Otterbox, Tech21, InvisibleShield, Spigen, or WhiteStone’s Dome Glass Galaxy S9 UV process. Once you choose one, come back and read these 35 Galaxy S9 tips & tricks.

WhiteStone Dome Tempered UV Glass ($44)

The first screen protector we'll recommend for the Galaxy S9 is the impressive WhiteStone Dome Glass kit. This isn't for the faint at heart, and it's pretty expensive, but it's worth it to protect your $800 smartphone. 

WhiteStone uses a special liquid installation process where you manually install the screen protector, then use a UV Dome Light machine to "cure" the liquid. This provides the absolute best screen protection experience for curved devices like the S8 and S8. The video above is a review of their product for the Galaxy S8.

It's not permanent and can be removed if necessary, so don't worry about that. Basically, where most glass protectors don't fit right or have gaps on the screen where touch sensitivity fails, this one won't. The liquid fills in the entire area, then curves the glass to the screen. These typically run around $60 but are often on sale for $40, which is still less than a ZAGG InvisibleShield. Stay tuned for a full review, or get one right away for your S9.

    I really love the Gadgetshieldz screen protectors. They covers the overall device and provide the lacking grip on the device. Probably my protector for the S9 is from the gadgetshieldz.
