Best Screen Protectors for Pixel 3a XL in 2022

The Pixel 3a XL's screen doesn't have a big, controversial notch like the Pixel 3 XL, but that front glass needs protecting all the same! The Pixel 3a XL has a slightly different port configuration, so Pixel 3 XL protectors will not fit well, so grab a protector that does. Most of the screen protector offerings right now are tempered glass for superior impact protection, but some film protectors are still out there if you prefer them.

A broken screen turns a new phone into a new paperweight, so please do us all a favor and cover your glass before you break it. Gravity is unforgiving, and so are phone repair prices. Now that the 3a XL has been out for a while, you can get name-brand protection without shelling out big bucks for high-quality tempered glass like the OtterBox Alpha Glass, which is easy to apply and works with even heavy-duty cases.

If you want to protect your phone and protect your wallet, consider the SuperShieldz 3-Pack, which gives you spares if you're prone to dropping your phone — or if you're just really bad at applying screen protectors, like me. The pocketbook application style SuperShieldz uses should be easy enough for you to apply that you should be able to get it right on the first try, though.
