While the regular Nintendo Switch is a hybrid handheld and home console, the Switch Lite is handheld-only. That means that you're more likely to just take this little gaming machine with you everywhere. To keep it looking pristine and working right, you should invest in a good screen protector for your Switch Lite; that baby is going to take a few bumps and scuffs! Don't forget to pick up one of the best Switch Lite carrying cases while you're at it!
Simple and effective
amFilm is one of our favorite brands for screen protectors on multiple electronic devices. These are 0.3mm thick, so you'll hardly notice them, and they are super clear and won't interfere with game visuals. They have a 9H hardness rating and are highly durable and scratch-resistant.
Practicality on a budget
JETech is always a good choice if you're on a budget. This 3-pack gives you extras in case you need them. The film is 0.33mm thick with 9H hardness, super clear, waterproof, anti-dust, anti-fingerprint, and scratch-resistant.
Top of the line defense
ZAGG's InvisibleShield is a trusted name in protection for many years. The Glass+ is made with high-quality materials that ensure your Switch Lite is protected from all wear and tear, including scratches while maintaining proper touch screen sensitivity. The reinforced edges also blend into the rest of the device to minimize chipping.
This highly durable ballistic glass screen protector looks and feels amazing while protecting your Switch Lite from scratches and high-impact drops. With ballistic glass, you won't have to worry about bubbling, and it is super easy to install and has a perfect fit. It's a bit pricier than the other options, but you get maximum protection.
These tempered glass protectors from Supershieldz are super in terms of protection. They are made from high-quality tempered glass for maximum scratch protection, thanks to the 9H hardness and 99.99 percent clarity, retaining the original touch and feel of your Switch Lite. And if you do need to take it off later, it leaves no residue behind.
Nintendo officially licenses HORI products, so it's a safe bet. This screen protector filter is made from high-quality materials that make it crystal clear without interfering with the screen's functionality. The installation process is also easy and frustration-free, resulting in the perfect application every time.
Protect that screen at all costs!
You'll be taking your Switch Lite with you while you're out-and-about, so you might as well invest in the best Switch Lite screen protector. Because if you're anything like me, a scratch on your actual screen will bother you for the rest of your life (probably), and we certainly don't want that!
If you want some personal recommendations on the best Switch Lite screen protector, I like the amFilm brand the most. I've previously used this brand's protectors on iPhones and even the original Nintendo Switch, and they're super durable and protective against everyday wear and tear. Another good option is Tech Armor's Ballistic Glass because it is made to handle the strongest impact drops, giving you the most peace of mind regarding protection. And if money is no issue, then ZAGG's InvisibleShield Glass+ is a great option as well because it can handle anything and blends in seamlessly — it's just a little more compared to the other options.
And while you're picking up the best Switch Lite screen protector, make sure you equip your console with some of the best Nintendo Switch games! Just make sure you have a large enough microSD card for all of your favorites without having to deal with physical game cartridges.
