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. Still, 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 your screen protectors regularly.
