While most eyes are drawn to that distinctive back and camera bump on the Google Pixel 6, the screen upfront is nothing to sneeze at either. This 6.4-inch 90Hz screen already has the protection of Gorilla Glass Victus, but to be perfectly honest, that's not enough. After all, glass can still scratch, and if your phone falls face first, the only real way to avoid a shattered green is a high-quality tempered glass screen protector. While tempered glass screen protectors still have some caveats right now, these are the very best Pixel 6 screen protectors you can buy right now.
Say no to nicks and scratches with these screen guards
Whitestone Dome Glass Google Pixel 6 Tempered Glass Screen Protector
Whitestone Dome Glass made quite the name for itself back when the Galaxy S10 first debuted with its in-screen fingerprint sensor, because its UV-curing system didn't interfere with it.

Best Google Pixel 6 screen protectors: Time to choose
Before we review the best Google Pixel 6 screen protectors, let's talk about the fingerprint sensor. The Pixel 6 may be one of the best Android phones of today, but we've had issues with the fingerprint sensor not working with a great number of tempered glass screen protectors. While optical in-screen fingerprint scanners theoretically shouldn't have any issues with any screen protectors, thicker tempered glass screen protectors have run into some issues. Thinner glass screen protectors and all film protectors have been working well, but Google directs users to buy a screen protector from a "Made for Google" certified company, which at this point would be Zagg, OtterBox, PanzerGlass, and ImpactShield (RhinoShield).
The Zagg InvisibleShield is a name-brand, high-quality tempered glass screen protector that Google says works with the Pixel 6, which means it's the best option you can buy right now that's not a film protector — or at least, it was until the Whitestone Dome Glass showed up with its UV curing and thin profile to give us what we've all been waiting for. Best of all, it's a two-pack while ZAGG is a single protector, so if you mess up the first installation — I've done it with a previous phone — you have a spare.
