The best Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus cases and covers

Corey Gaskin

The Galaxy S10 Plus has a beautiful glass body without any bezels. If you want to keep your phone in pristine conditions, you should invest in a case and cover. The cases and covers come in several styles so you can showcase your personality while protecting your phone. 

Samsung opted for a 6.4” dynamic display with a stunning resolution for the Galaxy S10 Plus, and you should protect this high-quality display with a case or cover adapted to this phone. Investing in a quality accessory will prevent damages and protect the touchscreen functionality of your phone.

Our Top Picks

Tech21 Evo Check

The Evo Check combines antimicrobial technology with Tech21’s FlexShock material to protect against 99.99% of microbes, as well as drops from as high as 12 feet. It is a relatively slim TPU case with a more rigid (FlexShock) bumper around the sides, but it snaps onto the S10 Plus quite easily. We’re also fans of the design, from the flashy colors and pattern to the rigid, raised buttons which are easy to find thanks to the cutout which houses them. They are still a bit harder to press than if there was no case at all, but not painfully so. This translucent case comes in a few different colors, or you can opt for a clear version if you don’t want to mask that design.

Moment Photo Case

If photography is important to you, and it likely is if you own a Galaxy S10 Plus, then Moment’s Photo Case might be right up your alley. It’s more than just a case, doubling as a lens-attachment accessory for the S10 Plus’ triple-camera array. This case enables S10 Plus owners to attach one of Moment’s proprietary lenses to either the regular or telephoto camera. The S10 Plus’ wide-angle camera can’t be paired with one of Moment’s lenses on this case, so don’t try to force it on.

It’s pretty simple to take the case on and off, as is attaching a lens — just line it up and twist it in to lock. The lens is relatively heavy, as it’s made out of metal and glass, but it feels secure when attached. In fact, the whole phone feels secure in this case. The edges create a thick bumper around the phone while the buttons are easy to find and press. The tactile feel is very similar to clicking the buttons without the case. It’s a good overall feel and a conservative look with either a wood or canvas insert. You can buy the case alone but adding a lens will cost upward of $100 extra.

Incipio Holden

Somewhere between clunky and thin lies Incipio’s Holden case — a good option for those looking for a case with style and some protection. The Holden case is a hard, but somewhat flexible, plastic case with a polymer bumper around the sides and a “fray-resistant” fabric back. Snapping on the case is easy enough and it looks great on the phone, achieving a rather understated look. The sides raise up over the S10 Plus’ edges just enough to create some separation when the phone is face down on a flat surface, and while the polymer bumper going around the case looks thin, it should still afford some shock absorption for drops.

The Holden has spacious, well-formed cutouts for ports, but does things a little differently when it comes to the buttons. Rather than creating protrusions, the button areas are marked with indents in the case which should help prevent errant button presses in your pocket. It can take some getting used to, as they’re rather small indents, but they work well for depressing the S10 Plus’ buttons underneath.

Snakehive Pastel Leather Wallet Case

We love a nice leather case, and Snakehive provides some of our favorites. Crafted from the finest European leather, Snakehive’s leather wallets add a sleek luxury to your already stylish phone, and the Pastel range takes that to a new level with its soft, understated color palette. The inside of the case is also made from soft, ice-blue leather, and your phone snaps into the rubberized holder, keeping it safe and secure. The cover folds around the display when not in use, and can fold into a kickstand if required. It even has three card slots inside the front flap, giving you a place to store payment cards or travel tickets. While it’s not the cheapest case, it’s well priced for real leather, and if you’re not a fan of the color, there are four other options to pick from.

Ringke Fusion Case

Ringke is well known for its extremely unique-looking cases — but it can do subtle just as well, and the Fusion case is proof of that. It’s made from a polycarbonate shell and a TPU bumper, which gives a strong balance between hard and flexible protection. It’s a good combination, and will guard against scratches and drops just as well as dirt and fingerprints. A raised bezel will also protect the display and camera module, and the transparent material means you can show off your phone. There are textured button covers to help you find controls by hand, and you can choose from clear, smoke black, or aqua blue.

Peel Super Thin Case

Peel has long been one of the best names to turn to if you want minimalist protection, and the Super Thin case is the majordomo of slim, sleek cases. The case material is so thin you can see through it, and adds protection against minor scratches, dirt, and adds grip to an otherwise slippery phone. However, that thinness means it’s not the best case to protect against bumps and drops. If you’re a clumsy soul, you probably want to invest in something a little more durable. But if you just want a modicum of protection that allows your phone’s style to shine through, look no further.

Gear4 Platoon Case

Without a doubt, drops are a glass phone’s worst enemy, so look no further if you want to max out your drop protection. Gear4’s Platoon case is the majordomo of drops and is rated as drop-resistant up to an incredible 20 feet (6 meters). It achieves this feat through Gear4’s use of D3O, a shock-absorbing material used by the military and professional athletes. That shock absorption is backed up by a hard back piece made from durable polycarbonate, which provides a solid backbone to the case. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s a textured pattern for grip, and the case comes with a holster too. This case offers all-around great drop protection, though it is pricey.

Casetify Impact Case

Casetify

You have such a wide range of different designs to choose from at Casetify. The company works with talented artists and designers to bring unique artwork to its line of protective cases. They offer a snug fit, protective button covers, and reinforced padding where you need it most — around the frame. In fact, the Impact range from Casetify offers tough protection from drops of up to 6.6 feet, with a raised lip top and bottom to prevent the screen from touching down. The cases are transparent with designs that feature vibrant colors and promise to last. There are loads of designs to choose from and the cases cost $55 each.

Spigen Tough Armor Case

Spigen is one of the biggest names in phone protection, and it offers tough cases with a sleek design. The Tough Armor is one of Spigen’s strongest, with a durable dual layer construction. This build combines TPU and polycarbonate, giving a good mix of shock-absorption and pure hard strength. As a result, despite being quite slim, it meets military drop-test standards, and features extra cushioning in the corners, and slightly raised edges to bolster that protection. There’s a handy kickstand for video watching, and the cutouts are roomy enough to fit most cables. A great price for a great case.

$25 from Amazon

Speck Presidio Clear Case

With solid drop protection that will keep your Galaxy S10 Plus safe from harm in the event of a tumble from up to 8 feet, this a solid protective case. Speck combines a hard polycarbonate exterior with its own shock-absorbing Impactium material on the inside and around the frame. There’s also a raised bezel to ensure that your screen doesn’t touch down. The clear finish, with a subtle Speck logo at the top right, shows off the phone inside and boasts a special coating to prevent UV discoloration or oil absorption. The cutouts are accurate and wireless charging works perfectly with the case on, but the button covers can be a little stiff until they wear in.

Burkley Magnetic Leather Wallet 2-in-1 Case

An outstanding phone deserves an outstanding case, and Burkley’s leather wallet cases offer some incredible protection and style. A polycarbonate shell with genuine Turkish leather clips onto your phone, while the leather cover wraps around your phone offering all-around protection. It closes magnetically, comes with a number of card slots on the inner pocket, and folds into a kickstand when needed. Best of all, the case shell separates from the wallet section when not needed, so you’re actually getting two cases at once, which goes a long way towards justifying the high price. Luxurious and protective, Burkley’s wallet case is a great choice.

$25 from Amazon

Poetic Revolution Case

Protection doesn’t usually come cheap, but Poetic has been bucking that trend for a long time. The Revolution case offers a huge amount of protection for your phone, with a polycarbonate casing and backplate paired with a TPU lining and bumpers. It’s certainly on the thicker side but gives enough protection that you might not mind. It also comes with a really cool kickstand, which gives you the ability to prop it in portrait or landscape mode, making it perfect for showing off any media or playing games. Like we’ve mentioned, it’s angular, thick, and lacking in subtlety, but it’s still a bargain case nonetheless.

$25 from Amazon

Otterbox Symmetry Clear Gradient Energy Case

Otterbox is well known for its protective cases, but they rarely look as good as this particular option. This case is a member of Otterbox’s Symmetry family, which means it comes with the strong drop protection and sleek style you’d expect from the range. It also comes with a cool green-to-purple “gradient energy” style that sets your phone apart from the rest. There’s a raised edge to protect the display and the camera lenses, and it’s so thin you might forget it’s there. Except for the awesome style that is. The $50 price may put off some people, but if you find it on offer it’s definitely worth snapping up.

BodyGuardz Ace Pro Case

Why would you want to hide away such a beautiful phone? Well, with this case from BodyGuardz, you won’t have to. The Ace Pro uses impact protection technology from athletics company Unequal, and that tech means a huge amount of protection for your expensive phone. The TPU bumper helps to absorb shocks and provides grip, while the hard polycarbonate back panel wards off scratches and other such hazards. Best of all, the entire case is completely transparent, and while the case itself adds a small amount of bulk, it doesn’t detract from the pure look of the phone. Expensive, yes, but can you put a price on protection?

Official Samsung LED View Case

Why not get your case from the same manufacturer as your phone? Samsung has always offered a great range of cases for its phones, and the Galaxy S10 Plus is no different. The Official Samsung LED View case provides all-around protection, thanks to its wallet case design that completely covers your device when not in use. Flip back the wallet cover and it switches your phone’s display on. Close it up, and your screen will lock automatically. There’s a slot for a credit card on the inside cover, and, best of all, the dot matrix retro design means you can see the time and your notifications, even when the cover is closed. It’s expensive, as official accessories tend to be, but it provides full protection and adds a useful feature for people on the move.

Scooch Wingman

Slap Scooch’s Wingman case onto your phone and you might wonder how you ever lived without it. The little flap on the back is the reason for that. It folds into the case when not needed, but when unfurled, it can be used as a fingergrip, as a kickstand, and even a car vent mount. It’s a genius piece of design, and one you’ll probably find more use for than you’d initially think. It’s not lacking in protection either, and the shock-absorbing TPU with EXO-D Impact technology has been tested on drops up to 6 feet. It’s certainly on the expensive side, but we think the unique design and protective qualities are worth it.

VRS Designs Damda Glide Shield

Wallet cases don’t have to look like little books with a cover — instead, they can look like VRS Designs’ Damda Glide Shield, which provides space for two credit cards and doesn’t skimp on protection, while eschewing the need for a folio design. It’s made from a polycarbonate hard shell that provides great protection from a variety of threats, while also being thin enough that it doesn’t add too much bulk. That space-saving is welcome too, as the card-carrying backpack does add a weird little bump to the bottom of the case. Still, the protrusion adds an easily gripped area, and it’s a handy little space with a semi-automatic opening mechanism and space for two credit cards — so you can leave your wallet at home if you’re just popping out. It’s not too expensive either.

Kerf Wood Case

Most cases are made from plastic, but not so where Kerf is concerned. Kerf specialises in making memorable cases from a variety of woods instead. It’s certainly a good case to consider if you’re looking for a striking style for your S10 Plus. It slides onto your phone and comes with a premium Ultra Suede lining to keep your phone safely nestled. You can pick up cases in a variety of different responsibly-sourced hardwoods, including African Mahogany, Purpleheart, Walnut, and more. Even the buttons are made from wood. Unfortunately, the shock-absorbing qualities of wood are unlikely to be as good as a TPU case, and it’s expensive, with even the cheapest options starting at $79. But even with that hefty investment, you can’t deny real wood makes for an extremely attractive case.

Ghostek Exec3 Wallet Case

Ghostek’s waterproof cases are probably its most famous creations, but they’re not the only Ghostek cases of note, and the Exec3 is worth checking out if you want a slightly different take on the iconic wallet case. It follows Ghostek’s usual dedication to extreme protection, using a combination of a shock-absorbing TPU frame with a hard, scratch-resistance PC backplate to provide great protection. That protection extends around the front too, with a front cover that includes a stretchable card pocket to fit up to three payment cards. That front cover doesn’t extend all the way up the screen though, so you’re leaving the top section unprotected, but that allows you to see the phone’s Always-On display, so it’s forgivable.
