The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is growing into its own as the most powerful clamshell-style foldable yet. It features a larger outer display and more powerful internals to keep you turning heads. Of course, you’ll still want to protect the foldable display and premium body. Here are some of the best Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 cases to help you do just that.

The best thin Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 case: Spigen Thin Fit

Spigen makes top-notch cases for just about every phone on the market, and that includes Samsung’s premium foldable. This version of the Thin Fit includes two pieces — one for the top and another for the bottom — and it relies on a combination of TPU and polycarbonate to get the job done. You can choose from black, Shiny Green, and Shiny Lavender finishes to match your Galaxy Z Flip 3, and the Thin Fit is slim enough for wireless charging and even Samsung’s PowerShare. However, we wish there were some form of hinge protection, as that’s the most vulnerable part of the device. Unfortunately that’s the tradeoff you make for an ultra-thin case.

Other thin Z Flip 3 cases you might like

  • Incipio Grip: The Incipio Grip is another slim two-piece case that’s ready for action. It comes in red or black, and the Grip adds rows of raised texture to the side rails to keep it snug in your hand.
  • Samsung silicone cover with strap: This unique option offers a soft blanket of silicone protection straight from Samsung. It also packs a bright and stylish strap to keep your Galaxy Z Flip 3 close at hand.

The best Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 clear case: Spigen Air Skin

It’s no surprise to see Spigen at the top of our favorite clear cases once again. Like its Thin Fit cousin, the Air Skin sports a two-piece construction that adds almost no bulk. However, it ditches the colorful finishes for a fully transparent look, which is just as good to show off your new phone. Spigen’s raised internal edges also help to guard the flexible display when your Galaxy Z Flip 3 is back in your pocket for safekeeping.

Other clear Z Flip 4 cases you might like

  • Ringke Slim: The Ringke Slim can give Spigen a run for its money when it comes to thin protection. Even better, you can choose from a glossy clear finish or a matte one to minimize fingerprints.
  • Otterbox Symmetry Flex: The Symmetry Flex blends classic Otterbox protection with an updated clear design. It offers handy cutouts for the ports and buttons, and the thick black bumper helps guard against drops. As expected from Otterbox, it’s one of the most resistant clear cases you can buy.

The best rugged Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 case: Otterbox Thin Flex

Otterbox

Otterbox’s Thin Flex is similar to the Symmetry Flex we just mentioned, but it’s all-in on protection. The black or Fuschia Party finishes should minimize the appearance of scratches, and each case is Drop Plus rated beyond MIL-STD 810G. A handy anti-microbial layer helps keep germs at bay, and Otterbox uses 90% recycled plastic on the Thin Flex to keep its environmental impact to a minimum. If you need a tough case, it’s hard to top this two-piece option. However, there’s still no hinge protection, so be careful when you have the device closed.

Other options you might like

  • Spigen Tough Armor: Spigen is just showing off its ability at this point, and the Tough Armor is as durable as they come. It’s thicker than most other cases, but it comes with a built-in hinge for even more complete protection.
  • Supcase UB Pro: Supcase makes some of the most rugged cases on the market, and its signature UB Pro case features 20-foot drop protection and an optional belt clip. The masculine design comes in four different colorways.
  • VRS Design Quickstand Pro: The Quickstand Pro looks like a case right out of a sci-fi movie. It packs a built-in kickstand, a hinge cover, and durable port covers for all-around coverage.

The best leather Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 case: Samsung leather case

Who better than Samsung to offer a premium leather case for its latest premium device? It’s one of the most expensive Galaxy Z Flip 3 cases you can get because it’s made of genuine leather. That said, it should last you for a long time, and you can choose between black, green, and Mustard finishes. There’s no perfect match for the Lavender Galaxy Z Flip 3, but the leather case is a strong way to make an eye-catching device even better.


The best Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 wallet case: Goospery Wallet Case

Goospery Galaxy Z Flip 3 wallet case

Next up is another leather case, but this one has the added benefit of being a wallet case. The Goospery Wallet case is a PU leather case for the folding Z flip 3 with a detachable wallet with space for two cards and some cash. This does make the phone quite a bit bulkier, but if you use the strap it works perfectly as a small purse replacement. It comes in three attractive colors: burgundy, black, and gray. Do note, however, that it likely won’t work with wireless chargers.
