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.
- Low Cost, High Quality: amFilm Tempered Glass
- Great For Inking: MoKo Paper-Like Screen Protector
- Budget Option for Surface Go: Sparin Tempered Glass
- PET Plastic Protector: Supershieldz Screen Protector
This tempered glass screen protector from amFilm should work with both the original Go and Surface Go 2 thanks to wide cutout along the top. Each package comes with two screen protectors and everything you need for a quick, clean install. It's thin, it's scratch-resistant, and an oleophobic coating helps reduce fingerprints and smears.
Inking with the Surface Go feels excellent, and you might be wary of responsiveness when adding a screen protector. This option from MoKo is made from PET plastic for a thin, matte layer that interferes as little as possible with the Surface Pen. Note that buying this for the Surface Go 2 will likely cover one of the microphones due to the cutout size.
If you have the original Surface Go and want to save a couple of bucks, the Sparin tempered glass screen protector should make a great fit. It's thin, it's light, and it will certainly protect against scratches. Each pack comes with two protectors and everything you need for a clean installation.
Those who'd like to avoid tempered glass can check out something like Supershieldz screen protectors made of PET plastic. They might not be as scratch-resistant or durable, but they're cheaper and have a matte finish to cut down on glare. Product info says it is compatible with the Go 2, though cutouts look too small for the microphone. Stick with this option if you have an original Surface Go.
If we're making some suggestions
Screen protector manufacturers are still catching up to the recent release of the Surface Go 2 and the new cutout requirements along the top, but it seems like amFilm's Tempered Glass Screen Protector should work with the old and new Go devices. It's budget-friendly and the package includes two screen protectors as well as everything you need to get a clean, bubble-free fit. The tempered glass provides robust scratch protection, and it doesn't interfere with touch or inking.
If you'd rather avoid tempered glass, MoKo's Paper-Like Screen Protector should make an excellent choice for your original Surface Go. It has anti-scratch properties, but no doubt most attractive is its matte finish to reduce glare and thin build. If you're often inking with your Go, this is likely near the top of your list.
