The Galaxy S20 comes with its own plastic screen protector, but it's not of great quality. If you want the best possible experience, you'll want a better quality screen protector that also works with the ultrasonic screen protector. It's still early days, though, so stay tuned for lots of new additions in the weeks and months ahead.
Glass screen protectors can be more finicky with the Galaxy S20 because of the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, but the UV curing system Whitestone uses is one we know works. It features full coverage of your screen and installation that prevents misalignment or air bubbles. It's expensive, to be sure, but it also holds really well to the phone and lasts a long time.
Made in America
This oleophobic film protector comes in a compact roll and uses a wet application to avoid bubbles and misalignments. It's a super-thin screen protector and is scratch-proof, and ultra-tough. ArmorSuit is also one of the few screen protectors made in the USA, if you prefer to buy domestic.
Caseology is better known for its cases, but it also makes some perfectly good screen protectors, and when you buy screen protectors from a casemaker, you can be sure that they won't interfere or peel up when used with most light and medium cases. It features a wet installation so you can avoid misalignment or bubbles, as well as a super thin protector which still feels like your screen.
These film screen protectors from UniqueMe aren't as rugged as tempered glass variants, but they offer a great value. They'll also keep your S20 display safe from scuffs and scratches without interfering with the in-display fingerprint sensor like we've seen with previous Samsung phones. It also features a hydrophobic and oleophobic coating that keeps your screen looking great.
What a deal
DeltaShield understands that you shouldn't have to spend an arm and a leg just to protect your Galaxy S20. This three-pack of TPU film protectors offer 99.9% clarity when applied to the phone, have self-healing technology to discretely remove unwanted scratches, and offers ample durability in a sleek and thin profile. For the price, it's hard to beat it.
As we learned last year with the Galaxy S10, tempered glass screen protectors have a nasty habit of interfering with Samsung's ultrasonic fingerprint sensors so you'll want to keep that in mind. We've included a mix of both tempered glass and TPU film options, but if that in-display fingerprint sensor is a key feature for you, you're best to stick with the flexible film screen protectors.
For early adopters, our top recommendation is the ArmorSuit MilitaryShield. The wet install process leaves more changes for fixing any mistake or mis-alignment during installation, and the self-healing film should buff out small scratches and fingernail dents so you don't have to replace it as often.
For tempered glass, I'll recommend the Whitestone Dome Glass because its UV-curing system makes it less prone to problems with the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor.
