Best Pixel 6 Pro protectors: ArmorSuit, TOCOL and LK
The Pixel 6 Pro is arguably the best device to come out of the Google think tank in recent years. With it, they re-enter the world of flagship smartphones, and the key aspects of this device, which exemplify this intention, are its curved screen, its personalized silicone and its array of cameras. And speaking of that display, Google has also removed its rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and instead has one on-screen hidden behind the display.
But as we all know, curved screens and screen protectors have been a difficult world to navigate. Add a scanner to the screen that can suffer from the number of layers between it and your finger, and you have a new recipe for disaster.
So, to make sure you can protect your device while retaining all of its features, here is our compilation of the best screen protectors available right now.
To note: This is a list that we will continue to update as new options come to market. In its current form, there are no tempered glass screen protectors in this guide.
