The best Samsung Galaxy S10 5G cases
The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G remains one of the more important smartphones released in the past few years. It was the first smartphone that could connect to the ever-growing 5G wireless networks across the US. It also offers four rear cameras, including a 3D depth sensor. If you still have this speedy pioneer of a device, you’ll undoubtedly want to keep it safe. There aren’t too many options still available, but here’s a look at our picks for the best Galaxy S10 5G cases currently available.

If you just want a cheap, simple clear case for your Galaxy S10 5G, look no further than this option from Trianium. It doesn’t offer the most drop resistance or the most interesting design, but it’s cheaper than $10 and gets the job done just fine. Now that the phone has been out for a few years and most big case manufacturers have moved on, this is one of the best clear cases you can get.
The Revolution case from Poetic is a high-quality, durable option that comes 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.

Ghostek Atomic Slim
The Ghostek Atomic Slim 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 metal-reinforced corners to keep your phone safe and sound from drops up to 12 feet. You can opt for black, gold, red, or pink to match your style, but all options feature aluminum shock absorbers in the corner pockets.
Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro
When it comes to rugged cases, there aren’t many brands that beat Supcase. And those that do no longer make cases for the Galaxy S10 5G. The UB Pro can withstand drops up to a whopping 20 feet and comes with an included screen protector in the two-piece enclosure. There’s also an integrated kickstand on the back and a rotatable holster clip. If you want protection, this is the case to buy.

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.
Encased Scorpio Armor
If you want a durable case that is pocketable, Encased makes another model called the Scorpio Armor. This one is a PC/TPU case with fully covered buttons, offering a unique curved button design for a nice tactile feel. The outside of the case has a matte, non-slip finish to prevent any drops before they happen. It isn’t the most interesting design, but it also isn’t as bulky as most rugged Galaxy S10 5G cases.
Poetic Guardian case
Yet another durable option, 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 hint of green color makes the case stand out. It’s MIL-STD certified, so you won’t have to worry about drops too much.
