8 Best Samsung Galaxy S7 Screen Protectors

Last Updated: March 1, 2016

As Samsung’s flagship Android smartphone for 2016, the recently launched Galaxy S7 is an incredibly powerful device, packing everything from a top of the line processing chip, to oodles of RAM, and everything in between. But the moment you see it, the first thing that gets noticed is the stunningly crisp, Super AMOLED touchscreen display. And as it’s the primary means of “using” the Galaxy S7 (or any other smartphone, for that matter), it only makes sense that the screen is protected against scratches, drops, and other kinds of damage.

Of course, you need screen protectors (also known as screen guards) to do that, which is exactly what this article is all about. So go ahead, and take a look at our curated listing of the 10 best Samsung Galaxy S7 screen protectors.

1. Skinomi MatteSkin Screen Protector

Made with a Matte finish and Anti-Glare infused material, the Skinomi MatteSkin Screen Protector greatly improves the touchscreen’s visibility in bright environments. Not only that, the screen protector is built with a military-grade elastic polymer material, that’s both flexible and tough. It is scratch and puncture resistant, and also protects the Galaxy S7’s screen against smudges and fingerprints. Oh, and did we talk about the 100% Risk-Free Lifetime Replacement Warranty?

2. IQ Shield Clear Screen Protector for Galaxy S7

Having a unique LIQuidSkin adhesive, coupled with a wet-install method, the IQ Shield Clear Screen Protector is one of the better ways of protecting the Galaxy S7 touchscreen. The screen protectors are made with a specialized process, which ensures high touchscreen sensitivity, as well as a “glass-like” optical transparency that doesn’t suffer from discoloration. The previously mentioned wet-install method makes for bubble-free application, and the IQ Shield Clear Screen Protectors are backed by a free Lifetime Replacement Warranty.

3. Peyou Tempered Glass Screen Protector

If you’re looking for a simple, no-fuss way of shielding your Galaxy S7 screen against all kinds of damage, it’s hard to go wrong with Peyou Tempered Glass Screen Protector. It features precise cuts for the front panel elements (e.g. earpiece, home button), and can be easily applied/removed without any bubbles. Peyou Tempered Glass Screen Protector doesn’t block the touchscreen’s responsiveness & visibility. However, it only covers the flat area of the touchscreen, and not the slightly rounded screen edges, which is a bit of a bummer.

4. Zagg Invisible Shield Original Screen Protector

The Zagg Invisible Shield Original line includes on of the best screen protectors available for the Samsung Galaxy S7. It’s fabricated from military grade components, originally designed to protect military helicopter blades. Not only that, it comes with a self-healing, nano-memory technology, that can heal small scratches and dings automatically. No wonder it comes with a (limited) lifetime warranty.

Price: $14.99

5. Zagg Invisible Shield HD Clarity Screen Protector

If the previously discussed Invisible Shield Original seems a little too basic to you, you can opt for the even more premium Zagg Invisible Shield HD Clarity Screen protector. It has all the features of the “Original” screen protector (military grade components, self-healing etc.), but provides even better “HD” clarity to the Galaxy S7 touchscreen. The screen protector covers the entirety of the touchscreen, and includes Zagg’s limited lifetime warranty.

Price: $24.99

6. Incipio Plex High Clarity Screen Protector for Galaxy S7

The Incipio Plex High Clarity Screen Protector truly lives up to its name, providing such crystal clear visibility that you won’t even notice it applied on the Galaxy S7 touchscreen. The screen protector completely covers the device’s touchscreen (edge to edge), and doesn’t affect its responsiveness either. It comes with a one year warranty. That being said, the pricing is a bit on the higher side.

Price: $29.99

Where to buy: Incipio.com

7. Samsung Galaxy S7 Otterbox Alpha Screen Protector
