Protecting the Samsung Galaxy S9's curved display is no easy task — tempered glass offers the best protection, but a PET film can generally flex around the edges of curved displays better. There's also a price difference, so there's a lot to consider when you're buying. These are the best screen protectors for your Samsung Galaxy S9.
Whitestone's UV-curing wet-install Dome Glass kit is the best on the market. It's expensive, but it'll protect your screen when it needs it most.
Easy to install
AmFilm simplifies the install by providing an "applicator case" so you can line up the perfect fit. This more straightforward tempered glass option also costs less.
Best for cases
Spigen is great for case-friendly screen protectors. They might not be tempered glass, but they're far easier on your wallet and far easier to apply.
Alinsea offers paper-thin and bubble-free TPU film screen protectors that are smudge resistant, "self-healing" for small scratches, and easy to install.
LK's solution has an installation tray that lets you line up the screen protector so you can get things just perfect and avoid the fingerprints.
Build with Military-grade thermoplastic urethane; this KOFOHO glass protector sufficiently covers the corners and edges of the S9 curved screen while leaving room for back cases.
Samsung includes advanced settings for screen protector
A common complaint about using a tempered glass screen protector is that they can decrease the touch sensitivity of your phone. If that's an issue you've experienced, Samsung has included a feature that will turn up the touch sensitivity. To toggle on heightened touch sensitivity, go to Settings > Advanced Features > Touch Sensitivity.
I know that screen protectors can feel like a compromise by sometimes making your screen feel or look dirtier than it is, but the Whitestone Dome Glass (opens in new tab) grips well, looks great and spending money on two screen protectors beats the stress, panic, and multi-hundred-pound costs of replacing a broken screen on your Galaxy S9.
Looking for a film screen protector that can handle those display curves? Check out the Spigen NeoFlex two-pack (opens in new tab), which requires a wet installation, but will otherwise offer the best protection for your Galaxy S9's curved display. It's also the most compatible option with cases.
