The Samsung Galaxy A-series doesn’t get as much love as the S and Note flagships, but just at a glance the Galaxy A70 looks way more similar to it’s premium bretheren than its competition in the mid-range smartphone space. Samsung has opted to use “Glasstic” on the back side (basically a really glossy plastic material) so you’re going to want a case to avoid any unsightly scratches and scuffs.
Spigen Rugged Armor
The Spigen Rugged Armor is my go-to case for any phone that it’s available for, so of course it gets top billing for the A70. It’s an ultra-thin design that features stylish and functional carbon fiber accents that look great and help with grip.

Dual-layer on a budget
Ownest Dual Layer
Dual layer cases are great because they combine soft and flexible TPU, which is great for absorbing the shock of impact, with a PC shell that offers rigid support and texture for grip. Available in five color options, this is a great case that looks great and gets the job done.

Save yourself the headache of a broken phone
Phone cases are always a good idea. You never hear someone drop their phone and say “man, I wish my phone didn’t have a case on” — but there are countless examples of the inverse situation.
Mid-tier phones sometimes get the shaft in terms of accessories, but there’s a ton of great options out there for the Samsung Galaxy A70. Our top recommendation is the Spigen Rugged Armor because it’s a fairly minimalist design that protects well where you need it and makes any slippery phone feel that much more comfortable in your hand.
Beyond that, it’s really a matter of personal preference but I’ll also give the nod to the DagoRoo case in part because I think the honeycomb pattern on the back looks really great and also helps to protect, but even more so because it’s the best price on our list.
