The Google Pixel 2 is here and as expected it's pretty amazing — and if you want to keep it looking amazing, you should be sure to protect that screen with a screen protector. Tempered glass screen protectors are your best option for protecting your phone's screen from drop damage and general wear and tear. And chances are you will see some wear over time.

Fortunately, there's a number of great options out there for you to choose from. Let's dive in!

Power Support Tempered Glass Film

We'll start with the tempered glass accessory that Google sells alongside the Pixel 2 on the Google Store. It has a black border at the top and bottom to help with lining it up during installation and also has cutouts around the front-facing speakers. Curved edges ensure a good in-hand feel, and the oleophobic coating will ensure you're not constantly wiping fingerprint and grease smudges off of your screen.

Google is selling this screen protector for a whopping $39.95, but for that money, you can be sure that it's a quality product and designed precisely for your Pixel 2.

Vigeer Tempered Glass Screen Protector [2-pack]

Vigeer has opted for cutouts around the front-facing speakers at the top and bottom, which will leave those bits of the screen exposed. But otherwise, this screen protector will cover the entire flat portion of the screen (damn those curved edges!) and should be fully compatible with cases.

The kit comes with two protectors along with a microfiber cleaning cloth, an alcohol wipe pad, and some dust removal stickers to ensure you get a clean installation. Get this 2-pack for just $7.99.

ZeKing Tempered Glass Screen Protector [2-pack]

If you like the price of the Vigeer option but don't like leaving the top and bottom edges of your phone exposed, ZeKing's screen protector is for you. Opting to provide precise cutouts around the front-facing speakers instead, this two-pack of tempered glass screen protectors will offer good protection for the entirety of the display up to the curved edge of the screen glass.

It's a basic kit but includes all the standard features including an oleophobic coating for fingerprints along with alcohol wipes for a clean installation. At just $6.99, you aren't likely to find a better deal on a tempered glass screen protector.

InvisibleShield Glass+ Tempered Glass Screen Protector

Zagg is a trusted name in phone accessories, and especially screen protectors. It's one of the few premium brands to already be selling a tempered glass screen protector for the Pixel 2.

The InvisibleShield Glass+ provides ample impact protection for your screen and is designed to withstand shattering itself. If it does, you can count on its limited lifetime warranty in which it'll replace the screen protector if it gets worn or damaged for as long as you own the phone (you only pay shipping and handling costs).

It's also smudge- and scratch-resistant, too, so it will hold up nicely to daily wear and tear — and you wouldn't expect any less from a product that costs $39.99.

amFilm Pixel 2 XL Tempered Glass Screen Protector

One of the few options available for the Pixel 2 XL, this tempered glass screen protector from amFilm should do the trick. It's been specifically designed for the larger model and claims to offer edge-to-edge protection. The glass has a black trim around the perimeter of the curved corner display, and notches cut out of the top and bottom to accomodate the front-facing speakers.

This is a case-friendly screen protector that features an invisible dot matrix to simulate fingerprint contact most accurately. It also has an olophobic coating to prevent fingerprints which is always important.

There may be cheaper options to come, but for $14.99 you'll get everything you'll need to ensure a clean installation and quality protection for your new phone.
