Best Galaxy S9 screen protectors Android Central 2021
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.

Best overall: Whitestone Galaxy S9 Screen Protector (Dome Glass)Staff Pick
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 3D Curved Glass Screen Protector for Samsung Galaxy S9
AmFilm simplifies the install by providing an "applicator case" so you can line up the perfect fit. This simpler tempered glass option also costs less.
Best for cases: Spigen NeoFlex (2-pack)
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.
Thinnest option: IQ Shield LiQuidSkin (2-pack)
IQ Shield offers paper-thin plastic film screen protectors that are smudge-resistant, "self-healing" for small scratches, and easy to install.
Easy installation: LK Tempered Glass Screen Protector with Alignment Tool
LK's solution has an alignment tool that lets you line up the screen protector so you can get things just perfect and avoid the fingerprints.
Alternative option: Caseology Tempered Glass Screen Protector
The Caseology screen protector only adheres around the edges of the display, so you'll need to line it up perfectly on installation.
Samsung includes advanced settings for screen protector
A common complaint about using a tempered glass screen protector is that it can decrease your phone's touch sensitivity. 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 grips well and looks great. Plus, spending money on two screen protectors beats the stress, panic, and multi-hundred dollar costs of replacing a broken screen on your Galaxy S9. If you want to go the extra mile, it's a smart idea to get the best case for your Galaxy S9.
Looking for a film screen protector that can handle those display curves? Check out the Spigen NeoFlex two-pack, 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.
