Best Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus Cases to buy in 2022

With the announcement of the Galaxy S21 series, Samsung took its flagship line to the next level. It’s the best that Samsung has to offer, barring the unique Galaxy Z Fold 3, of course. You have the Snapdragon 888 (or the Exynos 2100 that international users will unfortunately get), the cameras are amazing, and the battery should last all day. The Galaxy S21 Plus is the middle child of the pack, offering specs in between the two flagships.

Basically, if you want something a little more powerful than the standard S21 along with a bigger screen for watching content, but don’t want to pay those Ultra prices, this device is your best bet. That does make it a bit of a harder sell overall, as most people who would want better specs would just go with the S21 Ultra, which is one of the best Android phones out there. But no matter your reason, you need to protect your smartphone with a Galaxy S21 Plus case.


Going from thin and light cases to clear ones all the way up to thicker, full coverage ones and even rugged cases that sacrifice thinness for durability, we have both official options as well as third-party options that are also worth a look. There are options for every Galaxy S21 Plus user looking to grab a case for their smartphone.

    Best rugged protection

    If you want the best all-round protection against scratches as well as hard drops, this rugged case with a kickstand is the way to go.


    The official silicone case

    The official silicone case from Samsung, which was also a good option for the S21, is also available for the Galaxy S21 Plus, providing drop protection and keeping your phone stylish while at it.

    Clear with kickstand

    The official clear standing cover with Samsung includes a kickstand that allows you to set your phone on a table to watch content easily, and also features a clear design that doesn't hide your device's flair and color.

    Bulky, but functional

    Don't mind adding a little bit of bulk to your device? Then you should definitely consider the official rugged case from Samsung, with a textured back and sides as well as an included kickstand. Definitely one of the options most worth considering.

    Rugged and clear

    If you want to show off the back of your new Galaxy S21+ but also want to protect it against drops, this case gives you the best of both worlds.


    All-round, stylish coverage

    The Caseology Vault Bumper Case, which we've also featured for the Galaxy S21, provides a stylish design and plenty of protection, including an extra lip for protecting against drops, on a budget.

    Flexible TPU w/ shock absorption

    This Sucnakp case provides a very similar design to the previous Caseology case we showcased earlier, but comes in 2 colors, is somewhat cheaper, and comes in two colors -- black and blue.

    A clear, hard option

    Restoo's clear case provides a hard plastic shell that's also transparent and allows you to show off your phone's design while keeping it protected. It's also one of the cheapest options in this list.

    Another tough budget option

    The PhuLok third-party Galaxy S21 Plus case includes a stylish and rugged design that should protect your phone from almost anything that comes across it. Like other options in this list, it also features a kickstand for viewing content completely handless.

    Cube Grips Look Great

    Caseology's Parallax cases make it in our round-ups a lot for a reason -- they provide good protection while looking cool! The cube patterning on the back is for more than show, though -- it actually functions as a grip!

    Make It Sparkle

    Want to show that back of your S21 Plus, but want to still have a bit of flair? Pick up this glitter case! Your special smartphone color will come through, but also with some nice glitter speckling the case to give it extra oomph.

    Store it in Style

    Why just get a wallet case when you can get a GREAT looking wallet case? WWW's wallet case mimics the look of a clutch bag, and it just looks great. You can store your cards and money in it too, of course. The only downside is that you can't use the flaps as a stand.

These are our top picks for the best Galaxy S21 Plus cases based on price point and what they offer, with everything from Samsung’s own in-house offerings to other third-party options from known accessory makers. Whether you just want something that provides a thin layer of protection so your phone doesn’t get completely ruined with a light drop all the way up to rugged cases that provide additional grip, as well as substantial protection against drops and scratches, you can rest assured you can hit the ground running on day one of receiving your Galaxy S21 Plus on your doorstep, slap it on and keep going.

    The Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus is the middle child in the new 2021 flagship series, packing in a flagship SoC and a premium build, along with a decent display and camera setup.

The official Clear Standing cover is a great choice if you have a phone with some color, while the Official Rugged Case will provide much-needed protection. If you want the best protection in terms of drops and a case that also provides a kickstand and a belt holster if you’re into that kind of a thing, you should consider the Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro, albeit the fact that it adds a considerable amount of bulk which is a sacrifice you need to make for better protection.
