The Nintendo Switch OLED has been out for a handful of weeks now, and if you haven’t already applied a screen protector – you really should.

While Nintendo claims the screen is made out of glass, YouTube channel JerryRigEverything has now put the new screen to the test and it’s only got 2/10 screen protection – which makes it as vulnerable as plastic.

“Unfortunately, what we’re seeing here are scratches at level three with deeper grooves at level four, which means this new OLED screen has a surface layer of plastic.”

Screen Scratch Test

Although the Switch includes its own layer of protection in the form of an “anti-scattering adhesive film”, this won’t do much at all when it comes to regular everyday use – so it’s advisable to purchase a proper screen protector to minimise scatch damage.

“It’s good to know that the OLED screen is soft so that we can avoid putting it in situations where it can be damaged by coins, keys or other metal objects.

“Nintendo has said that the screen itself is made from glass and that this plastic film which feels very permanent is an anti-scattering adhesive layer, which is there to help keep the glass shards from scattering if the display ever does shatter…and it is probably a good thing to have.”

Nintendo also advises users not to remove this special layer of protection. So again – get a screen protector if you haven’t already to avoid putting this new system in situations where it can potentially be scratched by sharp objects.
