The Galaxy S21 Plus forms part of Samsung’s update to their S range of devices for 2021 and slots in between the Galaxy S21 and S21 Ultra. As with it’s predecessor, the S21 Plus features a 6.7″ Infinity-O display which has gained improvements, as has the triple rear camera.
Samsung have finally released the costs to repair a broken Galaxy S21 Plus screen in the UK, with the price coming in at £219, meaning as with any smartphone screen repair, its costly. To help you avoid the expensive mistake of cracking your S21 Plus’ display and having to fork out for the repair, we’ve shortlisted the best screen protectors for the S21 Plus.
Our shortlist was determined by protective capabilties, installation, screen clarity, sensitivity and price:
- PanzerGlass Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus Tempered Glass Screen Protector
- Olixar Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus Film Screen Protectors – 2 Pack
- Whitestone E-Jig Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus Full Cover Screen Protector
Available for £29.99 / $34.99
First up, we have this tempered glass screen protector from PanzerGlass which is made from 9H rated reinforced glass and so gives it the capability to protect your S21 Plus’ display from scratches, drops and shock caused by impact. Once applied, clarity and touch sensitivity are not effected, whilst the addition of the adhesive circular cutout for the finger print reader is a useful feature to ensure compability with the under-display fingerprint reader is retained, even though the design may not be to everyone’s taste. Additionally, as the glass follows the contours of the display, applying a case to your S21 Plus does not cause any issues to the screen protector, as sometimes can be the case with tempered glass protectors. PanzerGlass have also gone one step further too, by coating the screen protector with an Oleophobic coating which is anti-bacterial and will resist fingerprints too.
Available for £9.99 / $11.99
The Olixar pack of S21 Plus film screen protectors, provides excellent value for money considering there are two protectors within the pack. The screen protectors are extremely thin and are barely noticeable once applied, giving a factory like finish. Once applied, clarity and sensivity are retained and unlike the glass protector mentioned above, the Olixar film protectors do not require the cutout to be compatible with the Ultrasonic fingerprint scanner. In terms of protection, these film screen protectors will guard against scratching, plus light knocks, however if you prefer a much more durable and hardwearing screen protector, we recommend opting for tempered glass. Installation can be slightly tricky with film protectors, however the installation kit provided by Olixar within the pack, makes the application process relatively simple.
Available for £44.99 / $52.49
Whitestone Dome screen protectors are certainly the most unique screen protectors on the market. Providing full coverage to the S21 Plus’ display, Whitestone dome glass requires the use of a jig, UV adhesive and a UV curing lamp, which are all provided within the pack and as a result, this reflects in the price point. Once past the installation stage, the Whitestone dome glass screen protector provides excellent edge to edge protection against scratching, drops and shock, whilst retaining touch sensitivity and clarity. In addition, the dome glass has been designed to not only protect your Samsung S21 Plus’ display but your eyesight too by cutting harmful blue light rays by 25%.
