Best Screen Protectors for Moto X4

The Moto X4 is a quality mid-range phone from Motorola that falls under the Android One program, which means you'll get Motorola's excellent software experience along with guaranteed software updates from Google.

Mr Shield Tempered Glass Screen Protectors

Mr Shield is one of the more popular screen protector brands, and they offer a couple different value packs of tempered glass screen protectors.

Featuring a black border around the screen with cutouts around the earpiece, front-facing camera, and the home button. Since these are tempered glass screen protectors, you'll get the best protection available for your Moto X4, and since this is a two-pack, you'll get a backup screen protector thrown in with everything covered by Mr Shield's "No-Hassle Lifetime Replacement Warranty".

If you think you'll need a back up for your back up, Mr Shield offers a 3-pack for $8 (opens in new tab). Otherwise, the two pack for $6 linked below should do the trick.

Supershieldz Tempered Glass Screen Protectors

Supershieldz offers a comparable tempered glass screen protector for the Moto X4, with a couple notable differences from the Mr Shield option.

You still get that tempered glass hardness and a black border around the screen, but Supershieldz just cuts right around the home button at the bottom. If you've dealt with tempered glass screen protectors before, you'll know those thin strips that go around the earpiece or home buttons are most susceptible to damage, and you may also prefer the hand feel of not having the home button entirely enclosed by tempered glass.

Get this two-pack of screen protectors for just $8 on Amazon.

Supershieldz PET Film Screen Protectors

Tempered glass is great, but it can be expensive and maybe you don't like adding an (albeit thin) layer of glass to your phone. In that case, a film screen protector is what you want — something to protect the display from scratches and other damage.

Supershieldz has you covered again with a six-pack of PET film screen protectors for just $6. There's a notch-like cutout at the top that goes around the cameras and earpiece, with a cutout around the home button at the bottom to help you line things up properly for installation. These are designed for a bubble-free installation and since it's a six-pack, if you mess up the first time you've got 5 extra tries.

  • I prefer the tempered glass protectors. They feel more like the original screen feels and they don't scratch and scuff as easily as the softer film protectors. Yes glass protectors shatter when you try to peel them off.
    Most protectors are cheap enough that replacing a glass one when it gets damaged or needs removal that cost isn't an issue.
    If a glass protector cracks in a fall you know you have tried to do damage to the phone. A film protector won't crack and you can console yourself that the drop wasn't as bad as it could be.
  • I was a fan of TG all these years but with the advent of curved screens I think they are more of a miss than a hit. The edges starts chipping in a few weeks, loss of touch sensitivity are the major sore points. Wet application protectors from the likes of GadgetShieldz and Zagg protect the full screen right till the edges besides self-healing the scratches for that clean look. And those are pretty invisible. So when used in conjunction with a case, they are the best bet for the curved screens. My 0.02$.
