Samsung's Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are great phones to show off. But not if there's a hideous crack running across the screen. No matter how cautious you are, fumbles and drops are inevitable.

Thankfully, we've tracked down some of the best screen protectors out there that should keep your Infinity Display looking infinitely slick for infinitely longer (seriously, some of these protectors have a lifetime warranty).

We've rounded up tempered glass, film and even "liquid glass" coating options. Many of these are case-friendly too, so check out our list of best cases for the Galaxy S9 if you're looking for all-round protection.

Zagg Invisible Shield Curved Elite for Galaxy S9

First on the list is Zagg's Invisible Shield Glass Curve Elite protector. Yes, it's a wordy title, but that's hardly a shortcoming for all it achieves. 

It's a tempered glass adhesive that has a shock absorbent layer. It's, of course, scratch and fingerprint resistant too and is supposed to be Zagg's strongest protector yet. It's curved, like the Galaxy S9, to allow precise edge-to-edge coverage.

Besides these benefits, it preserves touch sensitivity and remains fully clear on application (so no annoying air bubbles).

Zagg offers a limited lifetime warranty on this protector, so if it ever does get damaged you can get a replacement (provided you own the device). You can also find the S9 Plus version for £39.99 or US$49.99.

Dome Glass Galaxy S9 Liquid Dispersion Tech

The Dome Glass screen protector from Whitestone is the most high-tech solution to keeping your S9's screen scratch and damage-free. It uses a tempered glass system that goes on top of a "liquid glass" coating.

The liquid glass is cured onto your phone screen using a rechargeable UV light device (included in the box). Curing the liquid glass solidifies the coating into a protective shield and also fills in existing scuffs and scratches.

The installation process takes some time and there are a few steps. There is an instructional video available, however, which the manufacturers advise to watch twice before starting.

The Dome Glass comes with everything you would need for the installation process, including an alcohol cleaner, cleaning cloth, a plastic installation tray and masking tape to cover up the speakers when applying the liquid glass.

amFilm Full Cover for Galaxy S9

amFilm's tempered glass screen protector comes out of AmazonLaunchpad, where it is its best seller. This fingerprint resistant protector promises 99.9 percent transparency and a 9H hardness rating. It is only 0.33mm thin which means touch sensitivity should be preserved.

The protector comes with a plastic installation tray so the protector aligns properly with the phone. amFilm promises its Dot Matrix technology will reduce air bubbles and the halo effect – which is when the edge of the protector doesn't make full contact with the screen; the resulting gap leaves a visible border around the edge of the screen.

This protector is also compatible with S9 cases and is available for the S9 Plus on Amazon UK and Amazon US for £9.49/US$11.99 respectively.

Klearlook Wet Apply Screen Protector for Galaxy S9

The Klearlook screen protector is ultra thin at 0.16mm, so it barely feels as though there is is a protector on your S9. It promises protection against scratches and scuffs and uses a "wet-apply" application technique. 

To install the protector you need to spray a liquid (included) and peel off the protective film on the screen guard. Next, spray the adhesive side of the protector as well as your S9's screen. This helps you slide the protector to the right position on your S9 before you set it in place using the provided squeegee, which remove air bubbles.

The Klearlook is also available for the S9 Plus for £5.99 or $7.99 in the US.

QDos OptiGuard Glass Curve for Galaxy S9

Another robust contender, QDos's OptiGuard Glass Curve is also designed for edge-to-edge protection for your Galaxy S9. And like the Invisible Shield Curved Elite, it keeps your screen protected from shock, impact, scratches and pesky fingerprints.

The OptiGuard boasts 9H hardness and is made of Premium Japanese tempered glass that's only 0.3mm thin, so you can expect a non-intrusive experience that preserves touch sensitivity. You also get a lifetime warranty from QDos.

You can also find a version for the S9 Plus for £34.99/US$44.99.

Olixar Galaxy S9 Screen Protector

The Olixar screen protector may not be made of tempered glass, but its fully equipped to keep your Galaxy S9 scratch-free.

It's thin non-intrusive protection preserves the clarity and touch-responsiveness  of your Galaxy S9. You will have to smooth out air bubbles with an application card (included) when you first put it on though.

The Olixar screen protector comes in a pack of two and with a screen cleaning cloth. S9 Plus owners can find this protector too for £7.99 or US$7.49.

Olixar Case Friendly Tempered Glass for Galaxy S9

Here's a tempered glass option from Olixar that will keep your Galaxy S9 looking fresh - for much less than some of the other tempered glass alternatives on this list. It's also case friendly, which means it won't get in the way if you want to buy a separate case for your S9.

Like the OptiGuard, Olixar's screen protector boasts a 9H hardness rating and also curves to fit the contours of the Galaxy S9. While this protector does not include a lifetime warranty, it does have a 2 year manufacturer warranty.

S9 Plus owners can find this protector on Amazon for £19.99/US$14.99.

ESR Galaxy S9 Screen Protector

This screen protector from ESR can resist up to 11 pounds of of force, is case friendly, and costs less than £10.

You can expect scratch and shatter protection, as well as curved edge-to-edge protection  – though there is enough space around the sides if you want to buy an additional case. Like some of the other protectors on this list, it promises bubble-free installation, while staying smudge-resistant and sensitive to touch.

Our only qualm is that ESR only offers a 180-day refund policy – unlike some of the other brands on this list that offer lifetime warranties  but we hope that's just because you won't need it.

The S9 Plus version can be found on Amazon for £9.99/US$10.99.
