In this buying guide we’ll explain why you need an LG G6 screen protector and share a list of the best LG G6 screen protectors available. With a big 5.7-inch edge-to-edge display protection is a good idea, as they can prevent broken or damaged screens.
While the rounded edges of the LG G6 screen look good, they also serve a purpose. LG states the round edges offer more surface area that can absorb impacts from drops. So yes the screen is resilient, but it is far from scratch proof. Which is why we recommend protection.
We’ve been getting a lot of questions about screen protectors. Especially when it comes to dealing with the rounded edges of the G6 screen. They work and work well. There are a few different styles to choose from which we’ll explain below.
Most G6 screen protectors cost less than $8, which is much cheaper than the $200 or more it will cost to replace a damaged display. You’ll need to spend a little more to get a quality screen protector from a reputable brand though.
We recommend investing in a high-quality screen protector to protect your $800 phone. Because spending less than $8 on a cheap film is better than nothing, especially if you don’t keep it in a case. The most expensive LG G6 screen protectors use reinforced and tempered glass. For those that don’t know, tempered glass is scratch resistant and more durable than films.
A film screen protector can sometimes change the texture on the glass, not to mention yellow or peel over time. That said, they’re still a worthy investment. Tempered glass uses the same reinforced materials as the G6 screen itself, so are extremely durable.
We’ve seen some users skip getting a screen protector after buying an LG G6 case, but we don’t recommend it. A case can’t protect your screen from keys in a purse or pocket, or all life’s daily hazards. A case is a good choice, yes, but so is screen protection, especially at this low price point.
Popular brands like Spigen, Supershieldz, iCarez and more all have excellent options when it comes to protection. We’ve added a few new options to the list and will update it as others get released. While you’re here, take a look at these 5 best quick chargers for the LG G6.
