The best Samsung Galaxy Note 20 cases:

Editor’s note: We will continue to update this list of the best cases for the Galaxy Note 20 as more are released.



Samsung poured hours of labor into every last inch of the Note 20, and one of the best ways to show that off is with an ultra-thin case from PHNX. Available in clear, frosted white, frosted black, and matte black, the PHNX MNML case is just 0.35mm thin and is completely free of branding. Of course, it won’t stand up to heavy-duty drops, but it should be able to handle some daily scuffs and scrapes. The PHNX MNML Case costs $27, but you can get 15% off with the discount code: 15AA.

Spigen Thin Fit

Spigen is a king among case makers, and the Thin Fit shows how far hybrid cases have come. It’s a single-piece design with a TPU bumper and a polycarbonate back panel. The back panel also includes a magnet-friendly slot designed specifically to work with magnetic car phone holders. All four edges of your new phablet will stay safely protected thanks to smaller and more precise cutouts for ports and the S Pen.

Spigen Ultra Hybrid

The blend of crystal-clear style and heavy-duty protection is our top reason to pick the Spigen Ultra Hybrid. It makes the most of a TPU bumper and a polycarbonate back panel, but it’s completely clear. There are so many luxurious details built into the Note 20 Ultra that it almost seems a shame to trap them behind an opaque case. The Spigen Ultra Hybrid uses precise cutouts to allow access to ports and tactile buttons make adjusting the volume a smooth process. If clear cases aren’t your style, the Ultra Hybrid comes in matte black as well.

Caseology Parallax

The next Galaxy Note 20 case on today’s list is another familiar face from many of our lists. Caseology’s Parallax design uses a textured triangular finish to enhance grip and add a unique style. Available in Aqua Green, burgundy, matte black, and Midnight Blue, it’s easy to match the Parallax to your other devices. The case is a MIL-STD 810G certified hybrid option with a TPU shell and a hard polycarbonate bumper.

Spigen Rugged Armor

Spigen’s Rugged Armor is similar to the Thin Fit, though it adopts a simplified TPU build rather than a hybrid approach. It should stand up well against drops, and carbon fiber details help add a touch of style to Spigen’s creation. You’ll only find the Rugged Armor in matte black, and the texturized side rails offer great grip so you don’t drop your phablet. Spigen added an interior spider-web pattern for further reinforcement.

Ringke Fusion-X

If you’ve used one of our case guides before, the Fusion-X name should be familiar to you. After all, it’s a tough hybrid protector with a distinctive bumper design. The Ringke Fusion-X’s polycarbonate back panel is available in clear or black camouflage, and both options help emphasize the Note 20’s design. Raised lips and bezels protect your phone’s most important features, and special holes make adding a lanyard a breeze.

ESR metal kickstand case

ESR’s case offers crystal-clear protection and a heavy-duty kickstand that’s perfect for media streaming. You can prop your phone vertically or horizontally, so feel free to tap into your favorite shows. The case itself is made of a flexible TPU material that you can apply or remove in seconds, and it supports wireless charging easily. However, ESR recommends keeping the metal kickstand off of your charging pad.

FYY wallet

The Galaxy Note 20 isn’t exactly a pocket-friendly case, so why not look for an option that frees up some of your other pocket space? The FYY wallet case does exactly that with three card slots and a large cash pocket for storage. It’s made of genuine leather with a TPU bumper to lock your phone in place, and it feels as good as it looks. The folding cover doubles as a kickstand to make hands-free streaming more comfortable.

Spigen Tough Armor

Most of the other Spigen options for the Note 20 are designed to protect with a slim footprint. The Tough Armor, on the other hand, is built for maximum protection. It may add a bit of bulk to your phone, but the two-piece hybrid design provides superior protection against drops and everyday scratches. Available in black and gunmetal, the Tough Armor has a kickstand that makes streaming comfortable and easy.

Poetic Revolution

Some of the best cases you can buy for the Galaxy Note 20 do more than just protect your phone. Take the Poetic Revolution, for example, it stars a folding kickstand so you can stream hands-free. It’s a tough, two-piece hybrid option, and a stiff polycarbonate lip helps to lock your phone in place. Raised bezels and an internal honeycomb pattern provide great protection, though there’s no built-in screen protector.

Otterbox Defender

If you’re not sold on Poetic’s Revolution, you may want to grab the Otterbox Defender instead. It’s a heavy-duty hybrid case, and it’s not afraid to add some bulk. While the Defender may not fit in your pocket, it comes with a belt holster to free up space. You can protect your Galaxy Note 20 with a red, blue, or black version and the two-piece design offers superior protection. Otterbox is one of the toughest case makers around, so don’t be too afraid to drop or scratch your phone.

You can also get 10% off site-wide, along with free shipping with code OTTER10 at Some exclusions apply.
