These are the best cases for the Samsung Galaxy S21 in February 2021!
The Samsung Galaxy S21 series has been announced a bit earlier than usual, but oh boy, it sure looks like these are going to be strong candidates for the best phones of the year—and we’re just 14 days into it. It is a massive improvement coming from last year’s S20 series, which had some top-notch technology like a 108MP camera in the case of the S20 Ultra, but had some rough edges.
The S21 series comes with a lot of generational improvements, keeping most of these features while refining those rougher edges I talked about. The regular Galaxy S21 is no exception, featuring a 120Hz panel, a 4,000 mAh battery, and a Snapdragon 888 (and an Exynos 2100 in international markets), all in a relatively small (by today standards) package with a 6.2-inch panel. You probably want a case for your fiery new flagship, though, which is why we’ve compiled a list with some of the best Galaxy S21 cases currently available.
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 much bulkier, so you can add extra protection to your smartphone for whatever price point you’re most comfortable with. Here’s the cases we recommend for the Galaxy S21!
- 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 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 nice leather finish. It's the most expensive one out of our list, but trust us, it's great.
- 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.
Our round-up consists of a few options for the best Galaxy S21 cases for everyone and every price point. We went from everything from Samsung’s current officially available options to known third-party case makers such as Caseology and Restoo for the best third-party options, as well as other cases we found on Amazon. We made sure to include our best picks for every type of case, from thin and light ones, to softer ones, all the way up to rugged cases that provide more-than-average protection. Since the phone has just been released, very few of these case makers have ratings or purchases, so we had to skip using that metric this time around!
