The Spigen Tough Armor offers dual-layer protection with the combination of a soft TPU core and a hard polycarbonate shell. It’s one of the best rugged cases for the Samsung Galaxy S20 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.


2. UAG Monarch

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.


3. Poetic Revolution

The Poetic Revolution is a two-piece protection powerhouse with a polycarbonate back panel and a TPU bumper for added drop protection. A front lip protects the screen from being dropped or placed on surfaces, though the Poetic Revolution doesn’t include a built-in screen protector. It’s a great option for media consumption, as the back doubles as a rugged kickstand.


4. 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.


5. Otterbox Defender screenless edition

Otterbox is the go-to brand for anyone looking for a great rugged case. The Defender screenless edition comes with all of the standard protection of the defender, sans the screen. It’s thick and covers buttons and ports, and uses a raised lip to keep the display safe. Even better, the Pro features OtterArmor Microbial Defense, which protects the case from many common germs as well.
