These screen protectors will keep your new Galaxy S21 FE screen safe

Like the original S21, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE features a flat screen, 120Hz refresh rate, and the brilliantly bright colors of a Samsung-tuned AMOLED display. Nothing would break my heart more than seeing such a beautiful screen shattered and spiderwebbed, and that's why the best Galaxy S21 FE screen protectors — especially tempered glass ones — are essential. We've rounded the best of them, so please, let's keep your screen safe.

Kiss scratches goodbye

OtterBox Amplify Glass Screen Protector

Engineered in partnership with Corning, the ultimate glass masters, the Amplify screen protector is more scratch-resistant than the competition. This protector doesn't come with spares because you should never need one, but OtterBox's lifetime warranty will replace it for free.

Glare-free photos

OMOTON Tempered Glass & Camera Lens Protector (3+2-Pack)

Do you shoot a lot of videos at night or with your flash on? OMTON's camera lens protectors are black to limit the glare that refracts through the glass camera module cover, ensuring the best picture quality. You also get three screen protectors to ensure you're covered.

Easy-read films

J&D Anti-Glare Matte Film Shield Screen Protector

If you prefer thinner films to thick glass, J&D's pack is a dollar per film so that you have plenty to swap out. Most importantly, while most glass screen protectors reflect everything, these films are matte for easier outdoor reading and easier pictures of your phone screen while TikTok-ing.

$6 at Amazon

Affordable glass protection

LK Case Friendly Tempered Glass Screen Protector and Camera Lens Protector (2+3-Pack)

A plasma oleophobic finish on LK's tempered glass ensures that your screen won't turn into smudge city, and it leaves slight gaps on all sides so that even heavy duty cases don't interfere with it. Plus, 3D sculpting means the edges feel smooth and natural.

Guard your cameras

Spigen Glas.tR Optik Tempered Glass Camera Lens Protector (2-Pack)

Most name-brand and premium tempered glass screen protectors only cover the front glass and not the back. Spigen, thankfully, sells its camera lens separately so you can mix and match between brands. These blacked-out protectors limit glare issues, too.

Invest in proper protection for your Galaxy S21 FE

If you break, crack, scratch, shatter, or otherwise damage your phone screen, your shiny new flagship turns into a low-profile paperweight. We avoid this with two things: a wonderful, protective case and a sturdy screen protector. Thanks to the popularity of the Samsung S20 FE, we have plenty of excellent options available for the Galaxy S21 FE right out of the gate.

ZAGG and OtterBox are offering great name-brand protection, with the InvisibleShield Glass Elite offering a ClearPrint coating that helps fingerprints dissipate and keep your glass pristine, a tall feat these days as we spend more and more time on our phones. Installation is also easier than ever and no one is more grateful for that than I am.

Tempered glass makes for the best Galaxy S1 FE screen protectors

There are two main types of screen protectors: tempered glass and plastic films. Plastic films used to be all we had to choose from, but these days tempered glass screen protectors are plentiful and popular. Why? Impact absorption.

Quick physics lesson: If your phone falls face-first on the ground, the kinetic energy built up by the drop gets transmitted into the ground through the surface of the phone that makes contact. That kinetic energy combined with the ripples and flexes caused by the force of the fall is what makes screens break, and PET films are too thin to absorb that force.

Tempered glass screen protectors, on the other hand, have more mass and often the same hardness as the screen. So when the phone falls, the kinetic force breaks the tempered glass screen protector — but leaves the original glass underneath intact and operating. We sacrifice the replaceable glass to save the important glass and digitizer underneath

Protect your kids by setting up a supervised YouTube account

YouTube Kids has been around since 2015 and has grown into a great place for children to explore what YouTube has to offer safely. In 2021, the company is expanding ways for younger viewers to see more of what's available from the streaming service, along with a more mature interface with supervised accounts. Instead of a separate app, these accounts will use the official YouTube app, so knowing how to set up a supervised account for kids on Youtube is important. If you want to protect your child from some of the less than appropriate content that can be seen on YouTube, then you'll want to be sure to have the supervised account properly set up. YouTube announced supervised accounts as a way for kids aged 9+ to see to more of what the service offers while still under the guidelines set by their parent. So, whether you have picked up one of the best phones for kids or maybe a tablet like the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 HD that has Google's Kids Space for your child, here&#

Whitestone Dome screen protectors return for the Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro

These accessories don't come cheap. What you need to know Whitestone has launched new tempered glass screen protectors for the Google Pixel 6 series. The screen protectors are more expensive because they use liquid adhesive. Whitestone sells these accessories for as low as $45. The Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro already feature Gorilla Glass Victus for both its front and back panel, which is touted as the toughest phone glass available. But that should not give you full confidence that the phones will withstand repeated drops. While you can always buy a screen protector, your options for capable items are likely to be limited due to a number of factors, including the phones' curved display. Fortunately, Whitestone is now back with its tempered glass screen protectors for Google's best Android phones after skipping the Pixel 4 and 5 series (via 9to5Google ). Whitestone has a reputation for providing some of the highest-quality accessories on the market for protecting

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review: Better phone, worse price

This upgrade is an uphill battle for Samsung thanks to steep competition. It's hard to believe that it's been a year and a half since Samsung redefined the "flagship killer" concept with the Galaxy S20 FE . At the time, the phone blew us away with its quality, delivering a true flagship experience for a significantly lower price than a "regular" Galaxy S20. The Galaxy S21 FE was rumored to be released the entire second half of 2021, and now it's finally here. The Galaxy S21 FE debuts with some of the expected upgrades over its predecessor but still retains many of the points that made the S20 FE a more affordable device. You won't find a brand new camera array on this phone when compared to 2020's device — that's a 12MP sensor for the main and ultra-wide lenses, while an 8MP sensor still resides behind the 3X telephoto lens — but Samsung has upgraded the styling to be more in line with the Galaxy S21 and the rumored look of the Galaxy
