The Samsung Galaxy S23+ is the Goldilocks of the S23 family, a happy middle point between the underwhelming S23 and the very pricey S23 Ultra. While the improvements over the previous model are iterative at best, it's faster, boasts more storage space, packs a bigger battery than the previous generation, and is a great compromise between its two S23 siblings.

That said, it remains a bit of a delicate flower like all modern Samsung phones, which I can personally attest to, looking at the nasty scratch in the corner of my phone. This is very much a case of do as I say and not as I do, lest you end up haunted by regrets and a tiny blemish in the corner of your screen. Take my word for it: one of these screen protectors can save you years of being plagued by your own foolish reticence.

Get the best protection for your Galaxy S23+

When you're deciding which screen protector best suits your needs and whims, the first question you need to answer relates to the material. Do you want an additional layer of solid, 9H-hardness tempered glass to safeguard your S23+'s beautiful FHD+ AMOLED screen, like that provided by our top pick, Spigen's inventively named Glas.TR EZ Fit for Galaxy S23+? Or would you prefer a layer of tough, flexible, magically self-healing TPU to protect your screen from scratches and scuffs, the material IQShield's Screen Protector is built from?

Alternatively, maybe you want a middle or hybrid option, like our premium pick. Otterbox's Alpha Flex Blue Light Guard is made from a glass-adjacent material designed to be even more absorbent and shock-proof while repelling microbes and protecting your eyes from dreaded blue light.

The final step in fortifying your lofty S23+

When it comes to protecting your S23+ from everyday knocks and scuffs, throwing on a terrific screen shield is an excellent first step. When you add on a camera lens protector, you further elevate your phone’s defense. Still, if you seek true immaculate protection for your device, this isn't enough.

To ensure your device is safeguarded from every angle, an additional step is required: throwing a case on your Galaxy S23+ — or a heavy-duty, rugged case if you really don't want to take any chances. The final accessory acts as a safety net against impacts, with the extra advantage of providing a more secure grip, ensuring you never fumble with your phone.
