If you have a higher budget, you can always opt for the official cases which offer maximum compatibility with the phone and other official accessories. Samsung’s Kvadrat cases are also less harmful to the environment, as they are made majorly from recycled materials and are compostable. Samsung offers a whole lot of options ranging from basic cases to rugged cases to leather options and even flip covers and wallet cases.

Higher budget spenders can also look for tried-and-trusted brands like OtterBox and Dbrand — not only do they have great offerings that provide the ultimate in protection, they also have a history and reputation of consistently providing such protection. Lower down the line, options from Spigen, Ringke, and Caseology give you a wide variety of choices. You can go completely clear and flexible with thin see-through cases, or opt for a re-inforced bumper, or go for a harder TPU shell, or go even harder with a dual-layer design and a polycarbonate shell. Choose your pick!

Of course, all of these cases are for the Note 20 regular variant. If you have the Ultra, you can check out the cases for the Note 20 Ultra. If you haven’t already, you can buy yours from one of the best deals around for the phone.
