What screen protector should you use for the Galaxy S9?

As pretty as the Galaxy S9 and S9+ may be, there's no denying the two phones will quickly show signs of wear and tear if you use them without any form of protection. The all-glass front and back make the S9 prone to cracks and scratches, and along with a trusty case, a screen protector will go a long way in ensuring its good looks remain for months and months to come.

One of our forum users recently said that they were having touch sensitivity issues with the tempered glass screen protector they're currently using on their S9+, and a lot of folks were quick to rush in with recommendations of other protectors they should try using.

Here are a few of the suggestions.

Hands down go with the Whitestone dome glass protector. You'll never use another, it's available on Amazon. It's a little more expensive then the others but well worth it. You can look up reviews, they are all over YouTube. The work with a lot of cases as well

Whitestone Dome glass, as mentioned above, is what I use & works great. Feels like original screen. No touch sensitivity issues & compatible with every case I've used(Otterbox, Bodygaurdz, Spigen). Bodyguardz just released their full adhesive curved tempered glass too.

I am using amFilm tempered glass protector and I am very happy with it. Very easy to install and I have had no problems with it. I did enable touch sensitivity setting. Best of all it is not expensive. About $10-12. Lifetime warranty too!

I'm using the Body Guardz and am very happy with them. No touch issues and installation is easy (unlike White Dome). ...so there's an alternative.

  • Bodyguardz Pure Arc here. I did enable touch sensitivity on the device, which helps.
  • I never use screen protector's. But I do swear by wallet cases. Never a mark on the display. For myself that's what Gorilla glass 5 is all about!
  • Don't buy Puregear glass. It chipped on my bed on the side without even dropping. Worst of all I paid for a replacement and they haven't shipped it or responded to my emails in about 15 days. My experience with Zagg was far superior from a customer support stand point and standing behind their products.
  • There is a setting under advance features to increase sensitivity. You need to enable that to use with tempered glass. I was having issues as well. The moment I enabled this feature, the screen worked just fine with tempered glass screen protector.
  • I've been using zaag with no problems.
  • I like Zagg a lot.
  • I prefer to buy cases with built in screen protectors for phones with curved screens for two reasons. First, screen protectors are notoriously bad for curved screens. And second, there is massive compatibility issues with screen protectors and highly protective cases that tend to be bulkier than thin ones.
  • My wife and I both has S9+s and we went with the Zagg elite. They both have cracks, scratches and bubbles. I think we are going to try one of the liquid screen protectors. But still wondering about the Whitestone Done.
  • None. Keep trying them but keep taking them off because there ain't nothing like the real thing.
  • I'm using the Spigen Galaxy S9 Plus Screen Protector NeoFlex. I'm using it because I use the Gear VR a lot. It works very well for a non glass screen protector. I don't know of a glass one that will work with the Gear VR.
