Best film and glass screen protectors for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus

Apple raised the prices for replacing a broken screen on your iPhone, and the new 8 and 8 Plus will set you back $149 and $169, respectively. That's twenty bucks more than what Apple used to charge for the screen swaps on its latest iPhones, so if you know you can't be bothered caring for your phone, better put a case on it... and a screen protector

Granted, Apple says it is using its toughest ever glass both for the screen cover layer, and for the chassis, but until drop tests definitely prove the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus hard nuts to crack, we'd put at least a film protector on their displays, and would advise to go with tempered glass for added protection and clarity. 

That's why we are rounding up a few of the better screen protectors you can find out there for your iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, so they can be protected from day one. As you can see, those little investments can save you at least $149 in the longer run.
