The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have gorgeous curved displays that you’ll want to protect.It’s worth looking into Galaxy S8 cases, screen protectors, and other accessories now. If this particular aspect of owning a new phone is usually tedious for you, don’t worry, because we’ve already done some digging of our own and compiled a list of the best Galaxy S8 screen protectors from a variety of mostly well-known brands. Some areon the pricier side, but having a good screen protector is going to be a lot cheaper than replacing the display, or the entire phone. Scroll down to see which companies have screen protectors we think you should look into.

Whitestone Dome Full Cover Screen Protector ($45)

Looking for the closest possible fit to your Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus? Then look no further than the Whitestone Dome screen protector. It’s up to our usual standards for tempered glass screen protectors, with a clear, oleophobic screen, tough tempered glass, and full touchscreen capabilities. But what really sets this protector apart from other similar products is the way it’s applied and what that means. The Whitestone Dome is applied through a wet installation method, which means that a layer of liquid is placed between your display and the protector. Liquid in this area provides a better touch-responsiveness than just air or adhesive, the fit is secured with a UV lamp, which cures the liquid into a solid glue, making sure it stays attached until you remove it. A fantastic idea that really pushes the boundaries of modern screen protection — but it is pricey.

IncipioPlex Plus Shield Edge ($50)

The Plex Plus screen protector immediately addresses any concerns you may have about coveringthe entirety of the Galaxy S8’s display, as it was designed with the curved edges in mind. This S8 screenprotector is tempered glass, so only a serious scrape or fall will leave a blemish, and its static-free finish prevents a build up of dust and lint, keeping the S8’s screenpristine and as clear as the day you got it. If you have the Galaxy S8 or the larger Galaxy S8 Plus, then the Plex Plus will protect your display from harm.

Moshi IonGlass ($40+)

Moshi’s IonGlass is another glass screen protector, but unlike the above Plex Plus, Moshi has used a unique strengthening process to make their IonGlass more effective than tempered glass. The end result is an S8 screen protector that will be very hard to scratch, dent, or shatter, and one that provides complete edge-to-edge display protection. It’s made to perfectly fit the Galaxy S8 orS8 Plus, is thinner than other screen protectors (meaning it’ll be hard to feel after application), and any fingerprint smudges or stains can be easily wiped away thanks to the oleophobic coating applied during its production.

OtterBox Alpha Glass ($40+)

You probably know OtterBox for their protective cases, but their screen protectors are also worth looking into. The company’s Alpha Glass, for example, is a tempered glass protector that can match up withany other offering on this list. It’s curved to complement the Galaxy S8’s design, and is both shatter- and scratch-resistant. The sensitivity from the smartphone’s touchscreen isn’t compromised, nor are the clarity and quality of thedisplay. It’s a completely clear screen protector that is backed by OtterBox’s 1 year warranty, so you can buy one knowing you have the company’s support if the Alpha Glass under performs.

Verizon Curved Screen Protector ($35)

Verizon doesn’t have a special name for their screen protector, only referred to as the “Curved Screen Protector”. Despite the lack of memorable moniker, it’s still a really good protector for your Galaxy S8. It comes with all the features you’ve come to expect, such as edge-to-edge coverage, smudge-resistance, and incredible transparency. The result is a strong glass screen protector that’s hard to damage. Once it’s applied (and a case is used), those around you will have a hard time believing it’s not an unprotected screen.

Spigen Neo Flex ($9+)

The Neo Flex screen protector from Spigen isn’t made out of glass like the others on this list. Instead, it’s made using a flexible TPU material that is like the film protectors many of us are probably used to. What it lacks in glass materials, it more than makes up for in capabilities, like the one that allows it to self-heal, or subtly eraseminor scratches over time. It cuts down on the amount of oils and fingerprint residue that could appear on the display, prevents bubbling during application and use, and touchscreen sensitivity remains unaffected. The one potential downside may be the spray-on solution required to make it stick to the Galaxy S8, but if you’re not bothered by a small amount of mist, then Spigen’s Neo Flex is definitely one of the cheaper solutions to keep your display intact.

InvisibleShieldSapphire Defense Curve ($50)

InvisibleShield is well known for making (pricey) smartphone cases and screen protectors, and the recent Sapphire Defense Curve, while as expensive as its predecessors, has a variety of features that justify the high price tag. The aptly-titled Sapphire Defense Curve was made with the Galaxy S8’s curved display in mind. When applied, it covers the entire front of the phone, including the curved edges. This screen protector has also been infused with sapphire crystals, making the glass protector more durable and difficult to shatter. Its impact-absorption properties allow it to handle even the most dangerous of everyday drops. It maintains your phone’s touch capabilities and clarity, fingerprint smudges are easy to deal with, and it’ll even stay on and intact when used with a protective case. If you’re been a fan of InvisibleShield in the past, their latest creation for the Galaxy S8 will keep them on your good side.

For the modest asking price, you get a screen protector that’s self-healing, flexible, and tough to puncture. The film protectorwill also prevent yellowing, and if ever removed, will not leave a sticky residue behind. It’s an affordable screen protector that will get the job done, and a good option if you’re not looking for anything too fancy.

IQ Shield LiQuidShield Full Coverage Screen Protector ($8)

IQ Shield’s offering issimilar to the aforementioned Skinomi TechSkin, which is to say it won’t empty your bank account. This is another film protectorthat should work nicely with your case of choice. It requires a squeegee and a liquid solution to apply, but the process is relatively easy andshould leave your devicebubble-free. This screen protector will also heal itself from minor scratches, and shouldn’tinterfere with your phone’s touchscreen capabilities, or change how your device feels during use. If you’re at all familiar with IQ Shield’s products, you know what you’re in for this time around, too.

Olixar Tempered Glass Screen Protector ($23)

Olixar is another company often associated with smartphone accessories, and its tempered glass protector makes a solid case for the company’s continued investment in keeping your devices pristine. This particular screen protector is, as the name implies, made of glass, making it more durable than those of the film variety. It also covers the Galaxy S8’s curved sides, which is what all Galaxy S8 owners want from their screen protectors. It doesn’t negatively affect your phone’s display either, and it has been tested with several smartphone cases — including those from OtterBox and Spigen — to ensure it won’t slide off or keep your case from fitting correctly.
