Best Surface Go and Go 2 Screen Protectors Windows Central 2020

The Surface Go, and Surface Go 2 are tablets designed to be as portable as possible, so it's assumed it will be going with you when you leave the house. Having a Type Cover attached can help mitigate scratches and scuffs to the screen, but for ultimate protection — especially when you're inking or touching the display — you should check out a screen protector. The Go 2 has slightly different microphone orientation along the top bezel, but some companies already have products compatible with both devices. We've rounded up some of the best screen protectors for Surface Go and Go 2 right here.

If we're making some suggestions
