A screen protector is one of the most important accessories you can buy for your phone, but the subtle curves along the edges of the screen on the Pixel 3 and 3 XL make it tricky to find the perfect fit. Google doesn't have a recommended screen protector on the Google Store — which they usually include for most of their phones — and I think that speaks volumes. I'd recommend the film screen protectors from Skinomi for both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL since they're easy to install, compatible with cases, and shouldn't leave you frustrated with bubbles or dust.
