These are the best cases for Samsung Galaxy S21 in June 2021: Spigen, ESR, and more!
The Galaxy S21 series comes with a lot of generational improvements while also refining the rough edges of the S20 line. The standard Galaxy S21, while being cheaper, is no exception, featuring a 6.2-inch 120Hz display, 4,000mAh battery, and a Snapdragon 888 SoC (or Exynos 2100 in the international markets). All of this is encased in a relatively small package. If you’ve spent a significant sum buying this Samsung flagship, you need a case for your new Galaxy S21 to protect it from day-to-day mishaps.
We’ve compiled a list of some of the best Galaxy S21 cases currently available on the market. We’ve looked at everything from rugged cases that protect your device at the expense of thickness, to thin and light ones that just add a little bit of extra peace of mind without making it bulkier. So you can add extra protection to your smartphone for whatever price point you’re most comfortable with. Here are the cases we recommend for the Galaxy S21.
The official silicone case
You can't go wrong with Samsung's official cases. They're sold in plenty of color choices to complement your phone's color scheme, and they provide basic protection against drops. They also make the camera bump flush!
The SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle Pro Series for Galaxy S21 provides enhanced protection from everyday accidents. Moreover, it has a textured grip, and packs a kickstand as well as a detachable rotating holster.
Samsung's official clear case is the most barebones one out of Samsung's official lineup of accessories, but it provides strong protection while also not adding that much bulk in your pocket.
Samsung's official rugged case not only comes with protection for all sides and corners of your phone, but you also get two different color options as well as a detachable kickstand. It also manages to look pretty good, even though it's a bit on the bulkier side.
The i-Blason Cosmo Series case looks quite interesting and its back cover will certainly turn heads. The case is made of TPU for enhanced protection, and sports raised edges to safeguard your phone’s front.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 official leather cover provides a similar degree of protection to other official cases on our list while also managing to be stylish and feel nice to the touch with a leather finish. It's the most expensive one out of our list, but trust us, it's great.
Rugged protection, slim profile
The OtterBox Commuter Series case is perfect if you are looking to add top-notch protection to your phone without too much bulk. It provides more than military-grade protection and has an anti-microbial coating.
Spigen is well-known for its quality smartphone cases and this case is no different. It is made of TPU and polycarbonate for enhanced protection, and comes with a kickstand as well. Moreover, the case is certified for military-grade protection.
Full body protection on the cheap
This Samsung Galaxy S21 case by Caseology provides a full-body layer of shockproof TPU to protect your device, and comes pretty cheap compared to most options.
Want a hard case and show off your phone's colors? Then the Restoo Clear Case has you covered with a clear, rigid design that's perfectly paired with one of the many gorgeous S21 colors!
The Weycolor Silicone Case is a soft silicone case that provides full coverage for your phone and comes in various color options to help you stand out from the crowd!
Restoo is also providing a rugged option for the Galaxy S21, which manages to be slightly see-through while also serving its purpose as an all-terrain case that provides full protection.
A cheap, clear case with a kickstand
This case from ESR adds a kickstand to the classic clear, transparent case design (also available on a translucent black option) and also manages to be pretty cheap compared to other official options that also have a kickstand.
Want good protection but also want your S21 to look good? Grab this triple-layer case from Casetego! It has a nice looking floral pattern on the back, and it'll still protect your smartphone from shocks and falls.
Wallet cases are great, and Arae Case has made one for the Galaxy S21! Store all of your cards with your phone, and you can use the case as a prop to keep your smartphone standing up, too. Just be sure to apply a screen protector so that your cards don't scratch your screen.

We looked at everything from Samsung’s official options to known third-party case makers such as Caseology and Spigen for the best cases.
