Whether for eco or profitability reasons — or both — Samsung has removed the pre-applied screen protector from the Galaxy S21 FE retail box. What’s more, the company isn’t selling any screen protectors for the Galaxy S21 FE separately, which sort of leans the argument more towards eco and recycling. But regardless of why the Galaxy S21 FE doesn’t have a screen protector, customers can turn to third-party manufacturers.
There are countless brands that offer Galaxy S21 FE screen protectors at varying prices, so here are some of the best solutions you can buy right now.
Oakxco Tempered Glass + Camera Lens Protector
This package features two temperate glass screen protectors and two camera protectors for the Galaxy S21 FE. The protectors have a hydrophobic and oleophobic coating, making them more resilient to water and fingerprint smudges. This package costs $9.99.
OMOTON Tempered Glass + Camera Lens Protector
Like the Oakxco package, OMOTON bundles tempered glass with camera lens protectors in a single bundle for the Galaxy S21 FE. The solution claims a 9H (surface) hardness rating on the Moh scale of mineral hardness and claims to be case friendly. OMOTON is offering a bundle containing three screen protectors and 2 camera lens protectors for $6.99 ($5.99 as of this writing).
Spigen Glas.tR AlignMaster for the Galaxy S21 FE
Spigen has a 2-pack temperate glass bundle for the Galaxy S21 FE for $13.99 called “Glas.tR AlignMaster.” It, too, promises a 9H hardness rating and hassle-free touch-responsiveness. The glass has an oleophobic coating to maximize resistance against fingerprint smudges, and ships along with a frame for easy installation.
UniqueMe Galaxy S21 FE screen protector with easy installation frame
The UniqueMe package features three tempered glass screen protectors and two camera lens protectors for the Galaxy S21 FE. In addition, like the Spigen solution, the bundle contains an easy installation frame. This package is available for $10.99.
Supershieldz Tempered Glass for the Galaxy S21 FE
Supershieldz offers three tempered glass screen protectors for the Galaxy S21 FE in a bundle that costs only $8.99 — or $7.99 as of this writing, thanks to an 11% discount. This solution boasts 9H surface hardness and a clarity rating of 99.99%, which means colors will remain vibrant. It has oleophobic and hydrophobic coatings.
SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle Pro
The SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle Pro is actually a full-fledged protective case for the Galaxy S21 FE, but one that features a built-in screen protector. The case itself has a kickstand and dual-layer rugged construction, and the built-in screen protector is compatible with the in-display fingerprint sensor. It’s available for $24.99.
What protection does the Galaxy S21 FE offer by itself?
Aside from an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance, the Galaxy S21 FE takes advantage of the latest protective glass technology from Corning, i.e., Gorilla Glass Victus.
The phone has an aluminum frame, and the back panel is made out of polycarbonate. With that in mind, the Galaxy S21 FE is far from vulnerable. But if you are looking for additional screen protection for your Fan Edition device, there are plenty of options out there, even if Samsung doesn’t offer any as of this writing.
