Samsung phones have had exceptional displays for as long as we can remember, but that's not surprising when you realize it also manufactures the displays in most of its rivals' phones. The Galaxy S23 Ultra is as exceptional as you'd expect, with a pin-sharp 6.8-inch 1440x3088 display that can vary its refresh rate anywhere between 1-120Hz and achieve a max brightness of 1,750 nits. Add HDR10+ certification, and you have a gorgeous AMOLED screen that deserves to be kept pristine.

It might be protected by the latest Gorilla Glass Victus 2, but glass is still glass. Pocket sand will scratch it, and big drops still smash it. With that in mind, you'll want to use a screen protector to ensure that display stays looking its best, and we've gathered the best of the best together in one place.

    Samsung Screen Protector for Galaxy S23 Ultra
    Official Samsung screen protector

    This is the best plastic screen protector we've ever used. It appears to be made of the same material as the non-removable protector you'll find on the Fold 4, which means it feels identical to glass unless you purposefully dig a nail in. The installation ensures perfect alignment, and S Pen glides across the surface as if it were made of glass. Best of all, it doesn't hinder the fingerprint reader — you won't need to reregister your fingers.

Keep your Galaxy S23 Ultra's display unblemished with these screen protectors

All of the screen protectors on this list work well with the S23 Ultra, but we'd recommend the Mowei, Whitestone, ArmorSuit, and official Samsung screen protectors the most. The Mowei gets a top pick due to its pricing and the fact it comes in a three-pack, along with the easy installation tool and decent protection. The included one-year warranty only adds to the value. Sadly though, like most glass fingerprint screen protectors, this one will impede your fingerprint scanner, and you'll need to register each finger twice to ensure it's recognized.

Whitestone Dome Glass isn't cheap, and installing it isn't for the faint of heart. Despite that, it's one of the best screen protectors for a phone like the S23 Ultra, thanks to that difficult installation method. You have to place your phone into a rig, pour liquid glue onto it, and then drop the protector down onto that, curing the adhesive with the included UV lamp. That may sound like overkill, but the ultrasonic fingerprint scanner is a major reason to go through with it. It'll take a fraction of a second longer to read your finger than before, but it's far quicker and more reliable with Dome Glass than any other glass screen protector. The lifetime warranty makes the price easier to swallow as well.

The ArmorSuit TPU screen protector gets our value pic. You get three protectors for a low price, and once you apply the ArmorSuit, you'll be surprised at the price. Unlike most TPU protectors, it has an oleophobic coating that resists smudges and grease and makes a huge difference.

If you don't want to mess around installing Dome Glass but still want a fast and reliable fingerprint scanner and you use the S Pen a lot, Samsung's official screen protector ticks every one of those boxes. Because it isn't glass, the fingerprint scanner works the same as it would without it — I didn't even need to reregister my prints. The installation method is a bit tricky, but if you follow the installation video and push down hard with the squeegee, you'll have no issues with bubbles. This screen protector is the same as the non-removable one you'll find on Samsung's foldables, so unless you dig your nails in, it feels almost identical to glass, meaning the S Pen glides across it like it isn't there.

A screen protector is the first stop on the way to full phone protection. Be sure to check out our picks for the best Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra cases, the best Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra heavy-duty cases, and the best Galaxy S23 MagSafe cases to keep your phone looking as pristine as possible.
