9 Best Galaxy S9 Screen Protectors

These are the best screen protectors for the curved display on the Galaxy S9. This guide goes over a list of the best Galaxy S9 screen protectors, what each one has to offer, and why you’ll want one. A durable tempered glass protector can keep your phone looking new, and the screen scratch-free.

Both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are 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 several styles of Galaxy S9 screen protectors available, and knowing which one to buy is really important. Some are cheap films while others are 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 or UV curing install kits cost upwards of $50.

Before we begin, it’s important to mention that curved screens aren’t the easiest to protect. Some of the screen protectors don’t fit right, or you lose touch sensitivity. New for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, after getting popular for the Galaxy S8, are UV lights that “cure” the screen protector to your phone. This offers one of the best experiences, but they’re more expensive. These are popular because they fix the curved screen responsiveness issue.

Basically, if you want to keep the 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, any protection for your Galaxy is highly recommended. Even spending $7-8 on a cheap film is better than nothing, 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.

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. As more companies release protection we’ll add them to this list. For now, 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 Glass (UV Install) ($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.
