10 Best Galaxy S9+ Screen Protectors

Caseology Tempered Glass (Easy Install Tray)

Caseology Tempered Glass (Easy Install Tray)

First off, we're recommending the Caseology Tempered Glass Screen protector kit for the Galaxy S9+. While they make great cases, the reason this made our list is because of the easy installation tray.

No one likes putting on screen protectors, and half the time we mess up anyways. This is especially true with the curved glass edge on Samsung phones. With Caseology, you'll get a super simple easy installation tray that perfectly aligns the glass protector for you. Pull off the protective film, line it up, and drop it in place. Then use the included squeegee to get rid of any bubbles.

Each Caseology glass works great with cases, which means the edges are just a tiny bit short so your case doesn't pull it up and ruin your screen protector. They're using 9H reinforced glass with anti-fingerprint coatings, rounded edges to prevent chipping, and it's pretty affordable too. Don't forget Samsung sells official accessories as well.

    Yep, My s9 with the latest update, Feb 2019, won’t allow any of the play store fonts to be applied even after they show in the font list… What can be done about this??
