Repeat after me, my friends: No matter your taste, your phone needs a case. Whether you just dropped hundreds on a Samsung Galaxy S10+ or you’ve had it since launch day, carrying it around without a case is just begging for Murphy’s Law to pay that phone a visit. We’ve got thin cases, clear cases, fun cases, butch cases, and even more. There’s something here for everyone, but please, don’t leave this article without getting your phone some protection!
New look on a classic winner
Spigen Neo Hybrid

Gone is the Herringbone on this award-winning case series, and in its place is a new pattern that Spigen promises is grippier than ever.

This is one of my favorite TPU cases around, offering a grippy, rugged look without any bulk and five excellent cool colors from navy and green to purple and maroon.
High class carry-all
Snakehive Vintage Leather Wallet

This U.K. brand makes a dapper case indeed, available in six suave shades of European nubuck leather that match each of the S10+’s colors and then some.
Hard as crystal
Ringke Fusion X

With clear, hard-shell backs, rugged colored bumpers, and a robust lip around that big camera module, this clear case will showcase your S10+ safely.
Big phone, thin case
Totallee Ultra Thin

Totallee’s Ultra Thin case is the case for people who hate cases. It’s thin as can be with grip and grace and available in three styles.
BRING ON THE GLITTER
Spigen Liquid Crystal Glitter
- $13 at Amazon
The S10+ is a big, shiny phone, and it deserves a thin, shiny case! Glitter lets the Galaxy’s rich color shine through while obscuring small scratches and IMEI info.
Incipio Esquire Holden
- $13 at Amazon
Incipio’s new Esquire series has a fabulous fabric-backed case that looks as durable, and it does dashing. It’s like Google’s Fabric Case, but more durable.
Colored carbon cover

Vinve’s carbon fiber cases have been dependable for many phones — popular and obscure alike — over the last year, and they’re back for the S10+.
‘Don’t mess with Texas’ tough

It checks all the boxes: dust flaps over ports, built-in kickstand, Qi-compatible, MIL-STD drop tested, Texas-born, and available in half a dozen darling colors.
X-Doria Defense Shield Series
- $30 at Amazon
This clear case won’t let a drop ruin your S10+, and the three shimmering bumper colors ensure that whichever style you pick, you can rock it in style.
Lap of luxury
Galaxy S10+ Leather Back Cover
- $20 at Amazon
- $25 at Best Buy
Samsung’s leather case comes in a variety of colors and offers a luxurious feel without making you pay luxury prices.
i-Blason Cosmo Lite
- $15 at Amazon
This simply divine slim case sports a stylishly modern geometric pattern with swirled marble pieces set in a golden lattice.
No matter your taste, your phone needs a case!
The Galaxy S10+ is a big, breakable phone that deserves a beefy, beautiful case, and while I can certainly understand wanting to keep things slim, that’s no reason to skimp on protection! The refreshed Spigen Neo Hybrid is as fetching is it is sturdy. If you want to graduate so a more durable, go for the ArmadilloTek Vanguard Series. The kickstand on the back is sturdy — and it doubles as a phone grip while I’m walking around the Magic Kingdom — and we’ve finally got some more subdued color options like a two-tone purple and Sith-like red/black that can be unstated or ominous.
If you’re feeling adventurous, though, grab the case that makes me giggle — and does a better job hiding smudges and scratches than a plain clear case — and GO GLITTER. It’s more beautiful and more functional, a paradox case that’s pretty and pretty awesome.
