These Galaxy S21 Plus screen protectors will keep your display looking good

When it comes to finding the best Samsung Galaxy S21+ screen protectors, there are a few key things to be aware of. First, you should know that there’s one already installed, but it’s just a piece of plastic that can easily be removed. Next, you’re going to want to make sure you find a screen protector that is compatible and works with the in-display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner. And if you already snagged the best Galaxy S21+ cases, then it’s important to make sure that your screen protector lines up. Luckily, there are already some pretty great options available for one of the contenders for best Android phones of the year.

Cut the glare

MagGlass Tempered Glass with Matte Anti-Reflective Finish

Staff pick

There’s nothing worse than pulling out your phone outside only to not be able to read it over the harsh glare of the sun. This matte-finished screen protector cuts down on glare while also limiting smudges, scuffs, and shatters, keeping your screen pristine.

Extra impact protection

InvisibleShield GlassFusion+ with D3O

D3O is a wonderful substance that has added its impact-resistance to hundreds of cases and accessories over the years, but adding it to a screen protector while keeping it pristinely clear takes talent and a little magic. Luckily, InvisibleShield has both.

Value pick

Supershieldz Premium Temepred Glass (3-Pack)

Supershieldz was the first Galaxy S21+ screen protector to sell out after it launched, and for good reason: They are strong, scratch-resistant, and they’re drop-dead easy to install. You also don’t have to worry about keeping some bulky installation frame around.

Best case-friendly

OtterBox Alpha Flex Series

This is sturdier than a film screen protector, but I wouldn’t actually call the composite this is made from glass. OtterBox knows how to make a durable screen protector that’ll play nice with bulkier cases, so if you need heavy-duty protection, this one’s for you.

Made in America

ArmorSuit MilitaryShield Case-Friendly Film

Film screen protectors aren’t as impact-resistant as tempered glass, but they’re easier to apply and tend to play nicer with cases. The margins on this film, in particular, leave a little more room at the edges for thicker bumpers and cases. This ArmorSuit model is also made in the U.S.

Upgrade pick

Whitestone Dome Glass (2-Pack)

Whitestone Dome Glass was the first and originally the only tempered glass screen protector that worked with Samsung’s Ultrasonic sensor thanks to its UV curing system. It’s not the only one anymore, but it’s still the best — if you can afford it.

Protect everything

WRJ Clear Case + Screen Protectors (5-Piece Kit)

Want to just be done with your accessory shopping? This kit contains two tempered glass screen protectors for the front, two for the rear camera module, and a clear TPU case, which is everything you need to protect your shiny new S21+.

Just the camera

Zeking Camera Lens Protector (3-Pack)

The cameras on the Galaxy S21+ are some of the best on the market, and they’re 110% worth protecting. This three-pack will give you spares, should you somehow drop your new phone on the camera corner twice in a row.

$8 at Amazon


ESR Liquid Skin (3-Pack)

In the event that a scratch or bubble appears on the display, ESR’s Liquid Skin will heal itself so you don’t have to see it forever. ESR also walks the knife-edge between „edge-to-edge protection“ and case friendliness.

These are the best Galaxy S21 Plus screen protectors

Attempting to provide your Galaxy S21+ with the most protection possible can seem like a daunting task. Tempered glass offers more protection against shattering drops, but it can interfere with the touch sensitivity and the fingerprint sensor, while PET films are thin and sensitive, but they don’t offer the same impact protection or durability. I highly recommend going with tempered glass now that we’ve had a few years to ensure that more of them work with the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. The MagGlass Matte Tempered Glass gives you a durable screen protector that’s easier to read in bright environments and won’t strain your wallet like the UV-curing Whitestone Dome Glass.

If you prefer your screen protectors thinner but don’t want the pre-installed film — or you’re like me and managed to get just enough dirt under the corners to peel it up already — then there’s a great domestically-made option in the ArmorSuit MilitaryShield, which comes in both case-friendly and matte variants depending on your needs. The ESR Liquid Skin also does a great job and gives you a few spares if you tend to scratch us screen protectors regularly.
