5 Best LG G5 Screen Protectors

Last Updated: March 19, 2016

When it comes to raw hardware specs, almost all modern flagship smartphones are fully loaded, having multi-core processors, oodles of built-in storage, and a lot more. But out of these, the one thing that sticks out immediately, is the screen. Take for instance, the recently launched G5 Android flagship from LG.

The LG G5 sports a gorgeous IPS LCD panel, with a stunningly crisp wide Quad HD (1440×2560) resolution. That alone could qualify as a reason for you to buy it. But if you do so, it’s wise to grab a quality screen protector to shield its touchscreen from damage.

And as you might’ve guessed already, that’s what we’re here to help you with. So without further ado, here is a curated listing of the best LG G5 screen protectors.
