These are some of the best Google Pixel 6 screen protectors you can buy

While most eyes are drawn to that distinctive back and camera bump on the Google Pixel 6, the screen upfront is nothing to sneeze at either. This 6.4-inch 90Hz screen already has the protection of Gorilla Glass Victus, but to be perfectly honest, that's not enough. After all, glass can still scratch, and if your phone falls face first, the only real way to avoid a shattered green is a high-quality tempered glass screen protector. While tempered glass screen protectors still have some caveats right now, these are the very best Pixel 6 screen protectors you can buy right now.

Made for Google certified

Zagg InvisibleShield Glass Elite+

Staff Pick

Zagg's tempered glass screen protector is a slim handful that is certified Made for Google for the Pixel 6. This means you won't have to worry about any wonk with the fingerprint sensor, and you get a top-quality tempered glass protector to help your screen avoid shatters.

Military toughness

TOCOL Google Pixel 6 Tempered Glass Screen + Camera Lens Protector (6-Pack)

This multi-pack of tempered glass protectors may not be Made for Google certified, but it's one of the few so far that does indeed seem to work properly with Google's optical fingerprint sensor. You get three screen protectors and three camera protectors — a great idea considering the size of this camera bump.

Made in America

ArmorSuit MilitaryShield Case Friendly Anti-Bubble Matte Film (2-Pack)

This two-pack of screen protectors arrives in a much more compact roll, meaning it's easy to pack a spare away and keep it handy. These TPU screen protectors are also a matte finish rather than glossy, making reading your screen in sunny conditions easier.

Super protection

Supershieldz High Definition Clear Shield (PET) Screen Protector (6-Pack)

This multi-pack can cover a whole family's Pixel 6 phones, or you can swap out if a case messes yours up. Supershieldz's tempered glass protectors don't have the best rate with the fingerprint scanner so far, but the film protectors are good to go.

Perfectly sensitive

AACL Google Pixel 6 Tempered Glass Screen Protector (2-Pack)

This two-pack has adequately worked with the fingerprint sensor so far. At 0.33mm thick, there's less material your print has to scan through. Your purchase also comes with two wipes, two cleaning cloths, two dust removers, an installation guide, and an easy-to-use installation tool.

Name brand protection

OtterBox Clearly Protected Film for Pixel 6

Like Zagg's InvisibleShield, the OtterBox film is another Made for Google product. Since it's a reinforced film rather than glass, there won't be the same compatibility issues with the fingerprint sensor.

Strength and responsiveness

OMOTON Google Pixel 6 Screen Protector + Camera Lens Protector (5-Pack)

Some Google Pixel 6 screen protectors focus on one feature, but this five-pack from OMOTON offers a wide range of promising features. First, the 9H hardness tempered glass material provides maximum strength for excellent protection against scratches and scuffs. Next, the slim material helps maintain the original touch response sensitivity.

Easy to read

Skinomi Matte TPU Anti-Bubble HD Film (2-Pack)

Best Google Pixel 6 screen protectors: Time to choose

Before we review the best Google Pixel 6 screen protectors, let's talk about the fingerprint sensor. The Pixel 6 may still be new to the market, and we've had issues with the fingerprint sensor not working with a great number of tempered glass screen protectors. While optical in-screen fingerprint scanners theoretically shouldn't have any issues with any screen protectors, thicker tempered glass screen protectors have run into some issues. Thinner glass screen protectors and all film protectors have been working well, but Google directs users to buy a screen protector from a "Made for Google" certified company, which at this point would be Zagg, OtterBox, PanzerGlass, and ImpactShield (RhinoShield).

The Zagg InvisibleShield is a name-brand, high-quality tempered glass screen protector that Google says works with the Pixel 6, which means it's the best option you can buy right now that's not a film protector. If you can't quite justify its higher price to protect some of the best Android phones, the TOCOL has worked perfectly for many early users — and it comes with spares and covers for the camera bar, too. OtterBox's Clearly Protected Film is a nice in-between option if you don't want to deal with the possibility of fingerprint wonk but want something stronger than a super-thin film protector.

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
