These are the best Microsoft Surface Duo cases in 2021: OtterBox, Maiddos, and more!

Protect your Surface Duo with one of these great cases!

Microsoft’s dual-screen mobile device, the Surface Duo, is one of the most exciting product launches of the past few years. It packs two 5.6-inch displays that turn into an 8.1-inch tablet, a 360-degree hinge, a Snapdragon 855 processor, Android 10, and lots more. With a current price tag of around $700, the Microsoft Surface Duo may have come down in price a lot but it’s still an expensive device overall. If you’ve purchased a Surface Duo or are thinking of getting one, you should definitely keep the device in a protective cover so that it doesn’t get scratched, bumped, or broken.


Since the Surface Duo launched in 2020, many cases for the device have been released in the market. To help you pick one, we’ve rounded up the best cases for the Microsoft Surface Duo in 2021.

    Simple and discrete protection

    If you don’t want to add more bulk to the Surface Duo, you should check out this silicone bumper from Microsoft. It’ll protect the edges of the two-screen device while offering access to every button, the SIM card tray, the fingerprint scanner, and the USB-C charging port. You can get it in Glacier, Graphite, Ice Blue, and Ember.

    Looks and protection

    The Maiddos case for Microsoft Surface Duo is made of PU leather and comes with microfiber lining. It not only feels good in your hand but also provides much necessary protection to the device. Moreover, it includes a belt holder and a clip.

    Premium leather

    Made from Crazy Horse leather, this case will safely store your Surface Duo. Moreover, you can get it personalized with your initials, name, or motto. It comes with a pocket as well so you can store a card or some cash.

    Style and elegance

    This is another leather case from Happer Studio but it ditches the extra pocket present in the company’s other case and the personalization options. You still get a handcrafted crazy horse leather case that looks premium.

    All-round protection

    This case, from Foluu, is made from high-quality synthetic leather and a tough polycarbonate shell. It not only looks and feels great, but sports a hand strap so you don’t drop your precious Surface Duo.

    A robust cover

    OtterBox is well-known for creating high-quality, robust cases, and the Ocity Series is a great example. Designed for the Surface Duo, this premium sleeve offers all-round protection, a slim design, a magnetic closure, and more.

    A folio-style case

    The OtterBox Theorem Series is a folio-style case made out of high-quality and durable materials. The case provides scratch and scrape resistance for the Surface Duo. What’s more, it offers an interior adhesive pad to stop the device from moving inside the case, different stand angles, a card and Surface Pen holder, and compatibility with the Surface Duo Bumper.

    Lightweight and colorful

    Want to add more color to your Surface Duo and protect it from scratches at the same time? Then you should check out the MightySkins Decal Cover. It's a soft vinyl cover that will protect the back glass panels and the screen bezels on the front of the Surface Duo. You can choose from a wide variety of patterns too.

    Not a case

    If you're looking for something that can keep your Surface Duo protected while you’re not using it, this Belt Holster from Kensington is worth considering. It's not a case in any sense but it’ll keep the device holstered from your belt with a decent amount of protection.

As you can see, there are a number of cases available for the Microsoft Surface Duo. Any of these great cases will protect your precious Surface Duo, but ultimately, which should you choose? If you’re looking for maximum protection, we’d recommend either the OtterBox Ocity Series or the OtterBox Theorem Series. But with their expensive price tags, they won’t be for everyone. Should you want something cheaper, the Foluu Leather Case is worth considering because it costs just $12.99 and offers all-round protection.

    The Surface Duo is Microsoft's first attempt at making an Android device. It's got two screens, is super thin, and is a productivity powerhouse. If you want a mobile device that's meant for work, the Surface Duo may be for you.
