Google's gorgeous OLED panels are some of its standout features and worth protecting with an extra layer of glass or PET. While glass tech has continued to improve over the last few years, with crack and scratch resistance at an all-time high, a phone screen will still likely lose when it comes to a concrete or gravel impact. If you want to make sure your Pixel 7 lasts, make sure you keep it protected.

This amFilm tempered glass protector is designed to not only protect your screen from cracks and scratches but to be thin enough to keep sensitivity high at just .26mm thick. You get three in the box with an alignment tool for easier installation. The glass also has an oleophobic coating, so you don't get as much fingerprint buildup.
One of the Pixel's best features is its camera system, with Google's software processing images to make them look their best, but a scratched or cracked camera lens can compromise the quality. This TOCOL screen protector comes with three tempered glass screen protectors as well as three tempered glass screen protectors for your camera lens, so you're protected on both sides.
Precise look and feel
AACL gives you three screen protectors with an alignment tool so you can get them fitted perfectly. These protectors are designed to look and feel just like the original screen, so you don't have to give up any usability for protection. With this protector, you should be able to use your phone like normal but with plenty of extra protection.
This is a three-pack of tempered glass screen protectors with everything you need to align it and apply without bubbles. The glass is hard and reasonably thin at 0.33mm. Even so, it's designed to work with the fingerprint reader with increased sensitivity enabled. It's also coated to prevent fingerprint buildup, so your display looks great, even while protected.
Tempered glass screen protectors have many of the same weaknesses as glass screens, such as the potential to shatter. This protector from Skinomi protects your screen with a tough TPU (plastic) layer that's unlikely to crack. Even so, Skinomi has designed this protector to be as clear as glass with a similar enough feel so you can forget you have it on.
Flexible film protection
While tempered glass screen protections go to great lengths to mimic the feel of your base display, a film can offer some unique advantages. For one, it's quite thin at 0.23mm to preserve touch responsiveness. Still, it's designed to be perfectly clear, so you still get the benefits of your high-resolution OLED display.
Don't wait too long to protect your phone
The Google Pixel 7 will likely be one of the best Android phones you can get, with strong performance and a big and beautiful screen. While it remains to be seen just how well it will stand up to the test of time, at least early adopters can ensure the hardware stays in good condition with a screen protector.
If you're just looking for something basic, the tempered glass protector from amFilm is a good choice, with a few extra protectors in the box to keep your phone looking fresh and an alignment tool for perfect application. With some of the thinnest glass you'll find on a protector, you should have no issues with touch responsiveness on your new Pixel 7.
There's also the TOCOL tempered glass screen protector kit. It comes with everything you need, including an alignment tool for a perfect fit. It also comes with protectors for your camera lenses for extra protection if the phone falls on its back.
