Best Screen Protectors for Nintendo Switch Lite iMore 2020

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 your everywhere, and that means everyday wear and tear while you travel. That's why you should invest in a good screen protector for your Switch Lite because that baby is going to take a few bumps and scuffs! While there are plenty of screen protectors out on the market, here are a few of our favorites that you should grab.

These tempered glass protectors from Supershieldz are super in terms of protection. They are made from a 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.

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 perfect application every time.

Top of the line defense: ZAGG InvisibleShield Glass+ Tempered Glass Screen Protector

ZAGG's InvisibleShield is a trusted name in protection for many years. The Glass+ is made with high-quality materials that make sure your Switch Lite is protected from all wear and tear, including scratches while maintaining all proper touch screen sensitivity. The reinforced edges also blend into the rest of the device to minimize chipping.

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 a good 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!

I like the amFilm brand the most. I've used this brand's protectors previously 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 in terms of 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.
