These are the Best cases for Samsung Galaxy S21: Spigen, UAG, 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 smartphone to protect it from day-to-day mishaps.

To help you pick the right case for your S21, we’ve selected 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 adding bulk.

This article is only for the standard Galaxy S21 cases. Check out our Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Ultra case round-ups for those phones.
