Here are the best iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus screen protectors that you can get for your brand new smartphone to protect the display against scratches.
If you’ve made that decision to move away from current hardware in favor of the brand new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, then you are really going to want to protect that investment, especially if you aren’t the type to take out AppleCare or AppleCare+ with your purchase. The pressure-sensitive display means that repairing or replacing screens on an iPhone is more expensive than ever.
Also, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus may have retained the screen sizes of last year’s iPhone 6s / 6s Plus, but the latest phone from Apple packs a Wide Color Gamut which not only produces record breaking color accuracy, but comes in 25% brighter than the display on the iPhone 6s / 6s Plus. So naturally protection of a display this beautiful cannot be left to just any random screen protector.
We have a list of some of the best screen protectors that will not only allow that color accuracy and brightness of your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus display to shine through unhindered, but are also budget friendly and won’t break your bank.
