The best Samsung Galaxy S10 5G cases:

Editor’s note: We will update this post as more high-quality Galaxy S10 5G cases are released.

1. Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Official Rugged Protective case

Best Buy

At the moment, Samsung is only selling one official case for the Galaxy S10 5G. Its Rugged Protective case is supposed to provide military-grade protection against any falls or accidents, and the company claims it has been drop-tested to make sure it will keep your big and expensive phone from harm. The silver case also has a built-in kickstand so you can watch Netflix or other videos hands-free.

2. Spigen Liquid Crystal case

Spigen remains one of the best smartphone case makers around. They have several Samsung Galaxy S10 cases to choose from, including the Liquid Crystal. It’s designed to be slim, but its TPU material can still provide the Galaxy S10 5G with a good amount of protection. Finally, the clear case allows you, and anyone else, to see the entire phone without any barriers.

3. Spigen Tough Armor case

If you want a much more rugged Galaxy S10 5G case, then you might want to consider the Spigen Tough Armor case. It has three layers — a hard outer polycarbonate shell, an inner TPU layer, and foam inserts designed to disperse the shock of a fall evenly across the case. It meets the MIL-STD 810G-516.6 standard for ruggedness but still has a relatively slim profile. The Tough Armor even has a built-in kickstand for hands-free video and content viewing.

4. Poetic Revolution

The Revolution case from Poetic is another high-quality, durable option, this time in textured black. It’s a two-piece hybrid beast, even though this version doesn’t include a built-in screen protector. The Revolution is ready for just about any outdoor pursuit with its MIL-STD 810G rating. Poetic also added a folding kickstand to the back panel if you’re looking for some hands-free streaming.

5. Ghostek Covert

The Ghostek Covert is a tough and ready option, just without some of the bulk. Unlike most matte black cases, the Covert is semi-transparent to show off your Galaxy S10 5G. It relies on four reinforced corners to keep your phone safe and sound from drops up to eight feet. You can opt for pink or Smoke finishes if clear isn’t your style, but all three feature red shock absorbers in the corner pockets.

6. Encased Belt Clip case

Not every case is designed to go in your pocket. Take the Encased Belt Clip option, for example — the belt clip is the entire point. It uses not just one but two kickstand options so you can watch your favorite shows hands-free. One is mounted to the case, while the clip functions as the other. The case itself is a matte black design with an ergonomic finish for added grip and style.

7. Poetic Guardian case

One of the most durable options, the Poetic Guardian, uses a hybrid design complete with a polycarbonate lip. Due to the waterfall screen design, the case is missing the built-in screen protector. The back panel is made of clear polycarbonate to show off your phone, while a TPU bumper protects against drops and a hit of green color makes the case stand out. It’s MIL-STD certified, so you won’t have to worry about drops too much.

8. FYY Wallet Case

For those folks who want to use their Samsung Galaxy S10 5G cases for something other than protecting the phone, the FYY wallet case may be to your liking. It’s made of two layers of real leather. You can put up to three cards in the wallet case, and there’s another slot for paper money. The wallet case also converts into a kickstand for hands-free streaming. FYY’s wallet case is available in black, red, blue, green, and brown colors.

9. Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Otterbox Symmetry

If you want a slim, clear Galaxy S10 5G case that can take a beating, the Otterbox Symmetry should be a perfect fit. It packs the premium durability you expect from an Otterbox, but the clean design feels lighter and less bulky. After all, you don’t want to add too much more to the massive 6.67-inch display. Unlike a few other Otterboxes, the Symmetry relies on a single-piece construction to keep your device safe.
