These are the best cases to protect your new Galaxy S20

The Galaxy S20 is one of the most beautiful phones ever made, but it’s also made of slippery metal and scratchable glass. If you’re worried about scratching up that new expensive phone, there’s no time like the present to grab yourself a great case to protect your shiny new flagship when your order shows up.

Mesmerizing colors

Caseology Parallax

Staff pick


  • $14 at Amazon
  • $25 at Caseology

This hybrid honey of a case has a lot in common with the Spigen Neo Hybrid, but it’s got better color combos for that great protection, including a new new teal “Aqua Green” that is even more alluring in person than the renders do justice.

Get a grip

Spigen Liquid Air


  • $12 at Amazon
  • $20 at Spigen

Keep your carbon fiber classics and give me the Liquid Air any day of the week. The diamond pattern covering the back is just deep enough to add real grip while still feeling slim and sleek in the hand.

Durable and diamond clear

Ringke Fusion X


  • $8 at Amazon
  • $10 at eBay

The Fusion X is one of those cases you’ll either love or hate the second you see it. I love it, and if you do, too, this rugged clear case will give you a distinct look and some beefy corner air cushions.

Pick a color, any color

Tech21 Studio Color


  • $24 at Tech21
  • $30 at Amazon

Cloud Blue and Cloud Pink are solid color options for the S20, but if you want to get even bolder, this thin, flexible case comes in six vibrant colors and can help your S20 withstand 8-foot falls. It also has anti-microbial properties.

Sturdy yet beautiful

Spidercase Protective


This multi-stage case holds your S20 in with a sturdy front frame that does not have a built-in screen protector so that it won’t interfere with the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. I also love this color, as it beats the tar out of boring black cases any day of the week.

$13 at Amazon

Fabulous first-party option

Leather Back Cover


  • $50 at Samsung
  • $50 at Amazon

Samsung’s leather cases are made with genuine leather, with a soft microfiber lining and aluminum buttons. While the S20 only comes in four colors, this leather case comes in six, including a very vibrant red and neutral brown.

Icy cool clear case

UAG Plasma Series


  • $40 at Amazon
  • $40 at Best Buy

This is one of the sturdiest clear cases around for the S20, with a sturdy clear brace across the back and a varied honeycomb pattern that add some etra grip and excitement to this rugged beauty.

Add some personality

Skinit Custom Cases


  • From $20 at Skinit

Skinit is licensed to sell cases with designs from your favorite sports teams, superheroes, and Disney films, and if none of those strike your fancy, you can get one made with a personalized photo design.

Affordable protection

Supcase UB Pro


  • $20 at Amazon
  • $20 at eBay

Supcase’s Unicorn Beetle line delivers on quality and price year after year. The Pro features a kickstand on the back and uses a front bracket to keep your phone in place and protected more than a TPU bumper alone.

You’ll forget it’s there

Totallee Thin


  • $35 at Amazon
  • $35 at Totallee

Totallee is one of the biggest names in ultra-thin cases, because year after year, time after time, it delivers an almost invisible case. The black case is a tiny bit thinner and more rigid while the clear case is a softer TPU.

Rough and tumble

ArmadilloTek Vanguard Series


  • $19 at Amazon
  • $19 at eBay

These Texan-born cases have been loyal heavy-duty cases for the last two generations of Samsung flagships, and they’re back again for the S20. I love the big sturdy kickstand on this case because it works in portrait or landscape and I can use it as a basic grip.

Flexible grip

ESR Essential Zero


  • $11 at Amazon
  • $11 at ESR

This slim silicone case lets you show off that subtle glow on your Cloud Pink or Cloud Blue S20 while keeping it from getting scratched or scuffed. It also adds some much-needed grip so you don’t drop your new flagship.

Name-brand durability

OtterBox Symmetry Series


  • $50 at Best Buy
  • $50 at Amazon

OtterBox is quite possibly the most recognizable name in durable phone cases, and make no mistake, you pay for that legacy. You also get a sturdy case in a deep alluring blue that puts the TARDIS to shame.

Stylish carry-all

Snakehive Vintage Leather Wallet


  • $38 at Snakehive
  • $38 at Amazon

Wrapped in European full-grain nubuck leather, Snakehive’s wallet cases feel better than Samsung’s first-party leather cases, at least in my humble opinion. You can also find them in more colors, including a lovely new Teal that replaces the older Honey Gold we saw last year.

Scratch guard

Kqimi Ultra Thin


If you don’t think you need a case because you never drop your phone, at least consider the Kqimi case for some scratch protection and added grip. As a thin hard-shell case, it won’t add any bulk to your phone while shielding that glass back from scuffs.

$11 at Amazon

Gorgeous pattern

Tech21 Studio Design


  • $24 at Tech21
  • $30 at Amazon

Speaking of ways to spice up the look of your S20, another case that fits this bill nicely is the Tech21 Studio Design. The pattern on the back gives the S20 a welcome touch of flair, and of course, the case comes in a few different colors. You also get 8-foot drop protection!

Nice and grippy

Speck Presidio Grip


  • $40 at Speck
  • $34 at Amazon

Being as expensive as it is, having a secure grip on the S20 at all times is a must. Thankfully, this is something the Speck Presidio Grip does really well. Offered in three colors, the case has a grip-friendly design that’s been drop-tested up to 13 feet to ensure maximum protection.

Thin, grippy color

Rinkge Air-S


  • $9 at Amazon
  • $9 at Walmart

This affordable case is slim but grippy, with a flexible TPU makeup that helps keep it easy to get on and off. There are four color options here, but I like the fiery coral and the soft Lavender Gray.

No matter your taste, your S20 needs a case


I’m happy to see more name-brand cases like Supcase and ArmadilloTek available this early, especially the ultra-thin and luxurious-feeling Tech21 Studio Colour, which is the case to buy your S20 if you hate cases. It’s thin, it comes in bold colors, and it offers a small lip around the screen and camera to keep them from scratching. I’m also a huge fan of the slim but sturdy Caseology Parallax in Aqua Green, which is what my own Cloud Blue Galaxy S20 is wearing right now.

If you prefer your cases on the more durable end of the spectrum, skip the bulky black blocks and get yourself the Spidercase Protective Case. It’s got the same multi-piece design as the Supcase, but it’s got a clear back to you can show off your S20’s color and a pretty purple bumper that I’ll take over grays and blacks any day.
