With the brand new Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus dropping at Samsung Galaxy Unpacked today, it’s fair to say we’re feeling pretty excited. Boasting a 6.7-inch screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and a powerful Snapdragon 888 processor, there’s plenty to look forward to when it comes to the Galaxy S21 Plus.
The last thing you want when picking up such a gorgeous phone is to damage it, which is why it makes sense to invest in a protective case for your new device. There are already some great options available for the S21 Plus, and we’ve rounded up a few of them here, whether you’re looking for a slim clear case to show off your Mystic Violet handset, or a leather folio case that doubles up as a wallet.
Ghostek Covert Clear Case
For those who don’t want to hide their phone away, the slim fit Covert Case from Ghostek is a must. This clear case lets you show off your phone while providing Military Grade drop protection, with sturdy silicone corners that absorb shock if you drop your handset. Speaking of drops, the non-slip grip reduces the risk of them happening in the first place, while raised bezels around the screen and camera provide additional protection against drops or placing your phone face down. Available in clear, smoke, or pink, this is one of the best cases around right now.
Olixar Soft Silicone Case
If you prefer your phone case in soft silicone, this mint green case from Olixar is an excellent choice. Its slim design slips easily into your pocket without adding bulk, while a raised bezel protects your screen from dirt and scratches. The durable silicone material feels pleasing in your hand and has a non-slip coating that ensures you’re less likely to drop your phone. This case also comes in pastel pink, blue, or black.
Love Cases Honey Bee Clear Case
Oh, we do like to bee the owners of a new flagship phone, and this bee-autiful case — excuse the puns — from LoveCases will keep your new S21 Plus safe from life’s little accidents. Constructed from clear flexible TPU, it adds a slim, lightweight layer of protection to your device. It’s the ideal choice if you’ve opted for one of the more eye-catching S21 colors, like Mystic Violet, as the clear case lets you show off your phone but also adds a fun honey bee design. There are dozens of other designs to choose from too, plus matching phone loops.
Mangix Slim Fit Polycarbonate Case
The S21 Plus is about as futuristic a phone as they come — so why not ensure your case looks like something from the future too? This ultra-thin carbon fiber style case adds a layer of sleek protection to your phone, with an anti-fingerprint coating that keeps the case looking as good as new. Compatible with wireless charging, it’s an excellent choice if you’re into minimalist cases.
FYY Leather Wallet Case
Our list wouldn’t be complete without a leather wallet case, and this is our pick of the bunch for anyone who wants to leave their wallet at home. Its soft PU leather exterior keeps your phone safe from harm and looking stylish, while a soft microfiber lining protects your screen from dust and scratches and a strong magnetic closure ensures your case stays closed. There’s a separate section at the front for cards, ID, or documents, which you can access without needing to open the phone cover. For under $20 this is a steal.
Rebex Heavy Duty Case
Protection doesn’t come much tougher than this rugged case, which offers dual-layer TPU and polycarbonate protection for your S21 Plus. It features a magnetic panel on the back which can be used with a car mount — that you’ll need to buy separately — a raised bezel around the screen for protection even when you place your phone face down, and a ring grip that doubles as a kickstand for hands-free calls and viewing. Pick it up in red or black.
