The displays on Apple's iPhone 7 and 7 Plus may be scratch-resistant, but that won't protect your phone from any serious falls or chance encounters with a razor blade. Outfitting your iPhone with a protective covering adds another layer of security — but which screen protector should you pick? We hunted down the best screen protectors available on Amazon, based on both user reviews and the corresponding Fakespot analysis score. (The Fakespot tool rates a product page on a letter scale, based on the authenticity of its reviews.) All of the products on this list received at least 4 stars on Amazon and a B rating on Fakespot.
Some reviews list the screen protector's score on the Mohs mineral-hardness scale, which measures a softer mineral's tendency to be scratched by a harder one on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the hardest mineral). The iPhone 7's display resisted scratches up to a hardness of 6 (or 6H) when it was tested; some of these screen protectors promise even better protection.

This tempered glass screen protector works with the iPhone 6S and 6 in addition to the iPhone 7. Featuring a 9H rating and an oleophobic coating, it is sure to resist all kinds of scratches and fingerprint smudges. The glass itself is also only 0.3 mm thin, which helps with its overall transparency. User reviews of the two-pack glass mentioned that it provided sufficient protection from falls.

Tech Armor's top-end glass screen protector features a six-layer construction that includes anti-scratch, shatter and fingerprint coatings. It has an extended cutout opening for the iPhone's front-facing speaker, but notably keeps the front camera behind the protective glass coating with no opening.
