The best Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra clear cases you can buy
Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Ultra carves its own path in a world of colorful glass devices. It comes in “Phantom” shades, including a few colors only available from Samsung itself. While you won’t find many bright shades like on the Galaxy S20 FE, the new colors are worth showing off, especially for the $1,200 price tag. Here are the best Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra clear cases that you can buy.
The best Galaxy S21 Ultra clear cases:
Editor’s note: We’ll be sure to add to this list of the best Galaxy S21 Ultra clear cases if new options launch.
Spigen Liquid Crystal
The Spigen Liquid Crystal offers decent protection for the Galaxy S21 Ultra, despite how slim it is. The flexible TPU makes the case easy to install. The buttons are covered, and precise cutouts are available for accessing other ports and features. The case is also transparent, allowing you to show off the design of the phone.

Spigen Ultra Hybrid
The Spigen Ultra Hybrid is one of the most basic clear cases you can get, though it provides great protection against both drops and scratches. It blends a flexible TPU bumper with a rigid polycarbonate back panel for the best of both worlds, and it packs Spigen’s Air Cushion technology in all four corners. You can choose from a true crystal clear version or add a matte black bumper to your Ultra Hybrid case.
Ringke Air Galaxy S21 Ultra clear case
Ringke’s Air is a basic TPU bumper, which means you should be able to apply or remove it in seconds. It also features a clever microdot pattern across the back that helps to counteract the rainbow effect that tends to come with clear cases. The Air is a great way to show off your Galaxy S21 Ultra and carry it hands-free, thanks to the built-in Quik Catch holes. You should find that the raised lips are just thick enough to protect your display without adding much bulk.

Speck Presidio Perfect Clear
The Presidio Perfect Clear from Speck is a great Galaxy S21 Ultra case if you want to keep branding to a minimum. It only features a small logo in the top right corner, and the case is completely clear from top to bottom. While the Presidio Perfect Clear looks no thicker than its competitors from Ringke or Spigen, Speck boasts that its case can handle 13-foot drops with ease.
Caseology Skyfall Galaxy S21 Ultra clear case
Not every clear case has to be completely clear, and the Caseology Skyfall is a great example. It’s one of the few two-piece cases on this list, and it blends a TPU shell with a protective polycarbonate bumper. The internal TPU layer is completely clear, but you can contrast it with your choice of black, silver, or Ocean Blue bumpers. Caseology’s corner protection is all thanks to durable Air Space technology, and the case is thin enough for wireless charging.

ESR metal kickstand case
Only a few cases are fortunate enough to make their way onto more than one of our top lists. This ESR case with a metal kickstand is one such case. It’s one of our favorite clear cases, thin cases, and it’s one of the best options overall, too. You can pop the folding metal kickstand for hands-free streaming, and it works both vertically and horizontally. If you’re not sure about a fully clear case, the ESR metal kickstand case also comes in transparent black.
Samsung clear cover
This clear cover is another simple case for your Galaxy S21 Ultra, though it adds a few extra features for convenience. The back panel is clear, but you can choose either a matte black bumper around the edges or a white one. Samsung added a small loop, which looks like it should fit a lanyard for hands-free carrying. The matte bumper is textured, so you should have no problem keeping a tight grip on your premium device.
The Otterbox Symmetry is the last clear case on our list, but it’s also one of the toughest. Otterbox puts all of its cases through brutal Drop+ testing, which means that they can withstand three times as many drops as the MIL-STD 810G certification requires. Of course, a case that tough is bound to add some bulk to your already-large Galaxy S21 Ultra. You won’t find a built-in screen protector anymore, but the Symmetry case can accommodate a screen protector of your choosing.
