Spigen Tough Armor

Spigen Tough Armor Designed for Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus

The Spigen Tough Armor offers dual-layer protection with a soft TPU core and a hard polycarbonate shell. It’s one of the best rugged cases for the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus you can get, coming with a MIL-STD 810G-516.6 certification for drop protection. The case also has a built-in kickstand that lets you prop the phone up in the landscape orientation.

UAG Monarch

URBAN ARMOR GEAR UAG Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Case

The Urban Armor Gear Monarch case features five layers of protection but remains feather-light and thin enough to work with wireless chargers. It meets the MIL-STD 810G-516.6 standard for drop and impact resistance, courtesy of its shockproof build and reinforced corners. You get covered but easy-to-press buttons and precise cutouts for everything else.

Poetic Spartan

Poetic Spartan Series

The Poetic Spartan is named for the legendary Greek warriors, and it lives up to the name in terms of protection. It’s a two-piece case with a rugged polycarbonate back panel and lip, while a TPU bumper protects the sides and corners. You can even pop the back of the case out into a kickstand while you stream your favorite shows. As you’d expect, the Spartan is MIL-STD 810G-516.6 certified.

Supcase UB Pro


The Supcase UB Pro is a popular option for those looking for rugged cases. The multi-layered TPU and polycarbonate case does a great job of keeping the phone safe from accidental bumps and drops. The built-in kickstand lets you prop the phone up in both portrait and landscape, and it also comes with a detachable belt clip holster.

Otterbox Defender Screenless


Otterbox is usually the go-to for anyone looking for a rugged case. The Defender Screenless comes with all the features you’d expect from the Otterbox brand. It’s thick and bulky, with covered buttons and ports, and a raised lip to keep the display safe. If the Otterbox is too big to fit in your pocket, you can pop it into the included holster for easy access.
