The new iPhones are not the cheapest options out there, so protecting your investment is crucial. But if you don’t want a full case, a screen protector is another way to go.
We’ve compiled a quick list of some of the best screen protectors available for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Most of the options will come with a pack of screen protectors, and, unsurprisingly, they’ll fit Apple’s phones from last year as well.
Let’s check out the options.
Best screen protectors for iPhone 11 in 2019
- Spigen GLAS’R EZ Fit
- ESR screen protectors
- Ailun screen protectors
- Purity screen protectors
- Trianium screen protectors
- Smartish Tuff Sheet
Spigen has its GLAS’R EZ Fit glass screen protector, which has a pretty unique way to make sure that the screen protector perfectly fits the iPhone 11’s display. You use the specifically designed tray and lay it down on the phone, apply the screen protector, and then remove the tray.
Spigen’s designed each screen protector to fit each variant of the iPhone 11, and each GLAS’R EZ Fit purchase comes with two screen protectors inside. It has a 9H hardness rating, an oleophobic coating to protect against fingerprints, and it’s a tempered glass design.
As far as positive marks go, reviews are happy with the easy installation of the screen protector, the fact it has two protectors in the box, and how durable it is. On the flip side, there may be issues with getting replacement screen protectors if there is an out-of-the-box issue.
The glass screen protectors from Spigen are available now.
ESR offers a lifetime warranty with its screen protectors. It includes a “bubble-free installation kit”, which includes a cleaning cloth, a wet wipe, and a dust removal sticker. ESR says the screen protector can handle up to 22 pounds of pressure as well. It’s scratch-resistant, fingerprint-resistant, and shatterproof.
It’s available for all three iPhone 11 variants and ships immediately. It’s available in a two-pack.
Ailun offers a three-pack for its 9H hardness-rated screen protectors for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The company says it has “99.9% Super Transparency”, with an anti-fingerprint coating, and “perfect adhesion”. It’s case-friendly and shatterproof as well.
Feedback with the ESR screen protector is also overwhelmingly positive. Most point out the great customer service, the easy installation, and the perfect fit with the phone (which, again, also fits the iPhone XR like most options).
On the negative side, some reviewers did say their screen protector cracked too easily, and that air bubbles were present during installation.
These screen protectors ship this week.
The screen protector option from Purity offers an installation frame, making it easier than ever to quickly and precisely install the screen protector on your iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro. It keeps an ultra-thin design, a hydrophobic coating, 9H hardness rating, and an anti-fingerprint coating. It’s compatible with Haptic Touch as well and comes in a three-pack.
General resiliency and toughness are praised for Purity’s screen protectors, as is the easy installation process. However, some say durability is in question as their protector cracked far too soon after application. In general, though, most reviewers appear happy with their purchase.
As usual, these screen protectors ship this week.
Trianium offers its “ultra-slim” screen protectors in a three pack. This also comes with a dedicated frame to lay over your phone that will properly align your screen protector for precise fitting on the display. The screen protector itself is scratch resistant, “crystal clear” for viewing clarity, while the oleophobic and hydrophobic coatings protect against fingerprints and liquid residue.
The majority of reviewers are happy with the screen protector from Trianium, praising how easily it is to apply to the phone, and how durable it is for everyday use. The lifetime warranty for the screen protectors is also a positive.
As is par for the course with a screen protector, some of the one-star reviews say it is not durable enough, that it cracked too easily after application on the phone, and that installation could have gone a bit smoother overall, though.
The Trianium screen protectors are shipping this week.
The Smartish Tuff Sheet screen protector for the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro is designed to be thin but tough, with an easy application process and the capability of fitting with most cases. It’s scratch resistant and can fit on your new iPhone with most third-party cases on the device as well.
Smartish says the tempered glass is thermally treated to be stronger overall for daily usage. It’s ultra- thin, should be bubble-free after installation, and is 99% transparent for anti-glare usage.
The Tuff Sheet screen protector is available now.
XDesign offers a three-pack of screen protectors for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Each option is constructed from tempered glass and has a thin profile, not adding a lot of bulk to the phone’s display. It’s a clear display, and XDesign says it has 100% touch accuracy when installed.
The screen protector can prevent scratches from daily usage, and it should help protect from any breakage in the display if the phone is dropped. The open-edge design means the screen protector can be used with most cases as well.
The screen protector is coated in both a oleophobic and hydrophobic clear layers, which will help prevent any fingerprints or other moisture marks from lingering. And as has become par for the course, XDesign includes a helpful installation guide and the parts necessary to get a perfect fit.
XDesign also offers a lifetime warranty. You can buy this screen protector now.
LK offers up another option for a tempered glass screen protector. This is made from 9H tempered glass, which is both shatterproof and scratch resistant. LK says the screen protector offers up “perfect touch sensitivity”, clarity, and transparency for fast touch responses with daily usage.
It has three screen protectors in a single pack, and an installation guide with a frame to make sure that the protective accessory has a perfect fit. Oleophobic anti-fingerprint coating is present on the screen protector as well, which should keep it clean over time.
LK also offers up a lifetime replacement warranty as well.
So, there we go, a nice list of screen protectors for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. If you have any other recommendations by all means let us know in the comments below!
