The iPhone 8 Plus has a beautiful, big screen, so keep it that way with one of the best iPhone 8 Plus screen protectors. You like to hold onto your tech for years, so surely you want to keep that screen in pristine condition. One of the best ways to avoid scratches and scuffs on your display is to invest in a screen protector as well as one of the best iPhone 8 Plus cases. Remember, the iPhone 8 Plus screen size is the same as the iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone 6s Plus, so the screen protectors are interchangeable. Here are best iPhone 8 Plus screen protectors for your iPhone 8 Plus.
Spigen's tempered glass screen protector is covered in an oleophobic coating to protect the screen protector from getting covered with fingerprints. Plus, if you typically use a case that has a lip around the front of the phone, Spigen's screen protector is just a tad smaller than the front glass. So, it's compatible with all cases. The auto-alignment kit makes installation foolproof.
Supershieldz makes a top-notch film protector that comes with six to a package. It's not glass, but it's got anti-glare protection with a film that is made from five layers of scratch-resistant polymer. It also has a protective hardened mask and a silicone gel that helps it cling to your screen to reduce bubbling.
Tech Armor's ballistic glass screen protector is a formidable, case-friendly option, made from multiple layers of Japanese Asahi glass. Asahi makes windshields for Mitsubishi, among others. With Tech Armor, you'll get excellent clarity, unfettered touch sensitivity, and 3D Touch compatibility. You'll be able to use your iPhone as though it were wearing nothing at all.
The amFilm tempered glass screen protector is reliable and resilient, so you won't risk cracking it or creating bubbles when you press firmly. These protectors are covered with an oleophobic coating, which repels the oils from your hands to keep your screen fingerprint-free as possible.
The OMOTON screen protectors are almost as thin as it gets, at 0.26 millimeters, and OMOTON promises 99.9 percent clarity. You shouldn't even notice the protector on your screen. These protectors completely cover the flat part of your iPhone 8 Plus' screen, so there's a little space around the edge for a case to fit.
Maxboost boasts the "world's thinnest" tempered glass screen protector, at just 0.2 millimeters (most are 0.3 millimeters). You'll never lose touch sensitivity, nor will you even really notice that this protector is there. With a hydrophobic and oleophobic layer on top, this screen protector will stay clean, so that you don't have to carry around a microfiber cloth.
The best in the biz for film screen protectors, IQ Shield's LiQuid Skin is your best option if you're not in the market for tempered glass. IQ Shield classifies these protectors as "smart film" since they seamlessly bond to your iPhone 8 Plus' screen and have a self-healing property that seals up minor scratches as though they never happened. A lifetime guarantee gives you peace of mind.
Find the best iPhone 8 Plus screen protectors for your needs
As someone who likes to keep a pristine iPhone, I always have a screen protector in place. If it gets scratched or cracked, I replace it immediately. It's a heck of a lot cheaper and easier to replace screen protectors than it is to replace your iPhone screen! iPhone screens are glass, and glass scratches and cracks. When I worked at the Apple store, I saw tons of broken screens every day. I also saw plenty of broken screen protectors, that once removed, revealed an unscathed iPhone screen.
The best iPhone 8 Plus screen protectors can help ward off some screen cracks (though not all. If your phone falls the wrong way, the screen is bound to crack regardless.) A screen protector most definitely protects your screen from scratches that are going to happen just from everyday use, going in and out of your pocket or bag all day.
Whether you decide to go with film for the slimmest protection or tempered glass, which is thicker but more durable, a screen protector will help your iPhone 8 Plus screen stay in perfect shape. I love Spigen's Tempered Glass Screen Protector (opens in new tab) because it's super easy to install and very resistant to scratches.
Of course, if you want enough for the whole family, the Supershieldz HD Film Screen Protector (opens in new tab) is an excellent option. You get six of the best iPhone 8 Plus screen protectors for one very low price.
