Whenever I get a new phone, I usually get a case and a glass screen protector. While using a phone without a case and screen protector can be nicer than having your phone wrapped in plastic and glass, the case and class protect against drops and keep the phone and screen in new condition. I always treat my phones as if I plan to sell them in the future and try to keep them in the best possible condition.
So for my Pixel 3, I picked up a 3 pack of the amFilm Google Pixel 3 Tempered Glass Screen Protectors on Amazon for a whopping total of $9.99. I am not sure how good these are yet as I’m just got them and have yet to install one.
Fore a long time I would normally get a Zagg Invisible Shield Glass Screen protector. They are good, but they are too expensive. Most times I look for a discount code where you can often save 50% off the cost. Even at 50% that are still very expensive. They do how ever offer free replacements (but charge you $6) for shipping. You can also get a free replacement at the Zagg booths you see in the mall but you need to pay them $10 or more for installation. The Zagg Invisible Shield for the Pixel 3 retails for $45! Ouch. I have also used Spigen GlasTr protectors on a couple of my iPhone SE. They are good and not too expensive but unfortunately Spigen does not make the Glas-tr for the Pixel 3.
