The Spigen Rugged Armor is one of the best Galaxy A51 cases around. You get excellent protection without making the entire package too thick. The case uses air cushion technology and a spider-web pattern on the inside that helps with shock dispersion. A raised lip keeps the display and camera safe and you also get covered buttons.


Caseology Solid Flex Crystal

The Caseology Solid Flex Crystal case offers decent protection for the phone even though it is quite thin. The flexible TPU makes it very easy to install. Reinforced corners and covered buttons help with safety, and there are precise cutouts for everything else. The case is also transparent and lets you show off the phone’s design.


Poetic Karbon Shield

The Poetic Karbon Shield is a slim, form-fitting TPU case for the Galaxy A51. The carbon fiber elements and ridged sides not only add a touch of style, but also add to the grip. You get a raised lip to keep the rear camera and the display safe, but it still works with screen protectors. You get covered buttons and precise cutouts for easy access to everything else.


Ringke Fusion-X

The Ringke Fusion-X comes with a dual-layer design that offers a lot of protection. A raised lip keeps the display and the rear camera safe, while the sides and corners are reinforced with a thick TPU bumper. The hard polycarbonate back is transparent and lets you show off the color and design of the phone. You also get a built-in lanyard hole to connect wrist and neck-straps.


UAG Scout

The Urban Armor Gear Scout is a feather-light case that does a great job of keeping the phone damage-free. It comes with a MIL-STD 810G-516.6 certification for impact-resistance and protection from drops. Despite its rugged nature, the case quite thin and won’t interfere when attempting mobile payments.


Supcase UB Pro

The UB Pro from Supcase is one of the best durable Samsung Galaxy A51 cases on the list so far with a heavy-duty hybrid design. It combines a TPU bumper and a polycarbonate back panel for protection against drops and scratches. Supcase even offers screen protection with a built-in film cover. The back of the case doubles as a kickstand so you can watch your favorite shows hands-free. As with any durable option, the UB Pro is MIL-STD certified for drop protection.


Spigen Liquid Air Armor

Spigen’s Liquid Air Armor is a great case if you want solid protection without adding much weight. It’s a flexible TPU option so it’s very easy to add or remove in just seconds. An all-over triangle pattern makes the case easy to grab and it shouldn’t slip on many surfaces. A raised lip helps to keep the camera safe and the case only adds 0.15 inches to the overall width of the phone.


Procase leather wallet

The Procase wallet case is made with genuine leather that looks and feels great. A magnetic clasp holds the folio cover in place, and the latter can also be folded into a kickstand. It comes with two slots for bank cards or ID, along with a large pocket to hold some cash.


Spigen Tough Armor

The Spigen Tough Armor features dual-layer protection with the combination of a soft TPU core and a hard polycarbonate shell. It’s one of the best rugged cases you can get for this phone, coming with a MIL-STD 810G-516.6 certification for drop protection. A built-in kickstand is also a useful addition and lets you prop the phone up in the landscape orientation.


Otterbox Commuter Lite

Otterbox is the usual go-to if you’re looking for a truly rugged cover, and despite the Lite in its name, the Commuter Lite is up to the task. It provides all-round coverage with two layers of TPU and polycarbonate. It’s slightly less bulky, not as thick, and doesn’t come with extras like port covers and built-in screen protectors like Otterbox’s other cases. However, the Commuter Lite will do a great job of keeping the phone safe from bumps and drops.


Poetic Guardian

If you’re looking for complete protection for the Galaxy A51, it doesn’t get much better than the Poetic Guardian. The case has an anti-scratch polycarbonate backplate, reinforced corners, and covered ports and buttons. A raised lip and a screen protector that is built into the front plate keep the display safe as well.
