The best Samsung Galaxy S10e cases and covers

Simon Hill

The Samsung Galaxy S10e features an impressive 5.8” Super AMOLED display. Samsung removed the curved edges that you can find with other S10 models, but the large screen still delivers the image quality the S10 product line delivers.

One of the drawbacks of having a phone with a large display is that it’s more likely to get damaged.To keep your Samsung Galaxy S10e looking like new, you should invest in a high-quality case and cover. These phones are fragile and slippery, which is the perfect scenario for broken screens and scratched metal casings. 

Our list of the best S10e cases and covers includes some that thin and sleek, as well as others that are rugged and substantial. Since the S10e is still a relatively new phone in the Galaxy lineup, there are plenty of cases and covers to suit your needs.

Peel Super Thin Case

Not a fan of bulky cases? Peel’s cases are so thin you can see through them, making them some of the thinnest cases around. These cases are sleek and minimalist, lacking even the Peel branding. The result is a case that doesn’t distract from your device, and adds some protection from dirt, dust, and minor scratches. Of course, there’s an obvious downside to this lightweight case — it’s not going to do very much to protect against damage from drops, bumps, and more serious scratches. There’s also precious little else to justify the case’s relatively high price, but if you want just a little extra protection without adding bulk, Peel’s cases may be the best choice.

Ringke Fusion-X DDP

No-one could ever accuse Ringke of not having its own style. The Fusion-X DDP case is a protective case that’s hard to miss, despite the semitransparent gray camouflage pattern on the rear polycarbonate panel. The prominent bumpers are made from shock-absorbent TPU, and come with additional reinforcements to further guard against dangerous drops. It’s MIL-STD 810G — 516.6 Certified, and has raised bezels to further protect the screen and camera lenses. Finally, there’s also a hole for a lanyard. While the design may divide opinion, this case provides excellent protection for the price.

Ghostek Nautical2 Waterproof Case

The Galaxy S10e has an already impressive IP68-rating for water-resistance, but if you want to really waterproof your phone, Ghostek provides a relatively inexpensive way to do so. The Nautical2 case may look a little odd due to the dent for the fingerprint scanner, but its specs speak for themselves. Slapping this onto your phone gives it the ability to submerge up to 20 feet for up to an hour, adding significantly more to the device’s already strong waterproofing. It’s tough too, using hard polycarbonate and absorbent TPU to protect against drops, bumps, and more — while the screen is protected by the built-in screen protector. All without impeding wireless charging or Wireless PowerShare.

Tech21 Pure Print Liberty Strawberry Thief

What do you get when you combine Liberty London’s style with Tech21’s expertly made protective cases? You get an excellent case that also looks good. Tech21 has created several cases with Liberty London, but the Strawberry Thief is our favorite. Created in 1883 as a furnishing pattern, Strawberry Thief has been a Liberty favorite ever since, and it lends a real beauty that complements your phone’s sleek style. It uses Tech21’s Bulletshield material, so it’s very protective, with drop protection tested up to 10 feet (3 meters). Unfortunately, it’s not the cheapest case around by a long way — but looking this good is worth it.

Moment Photography Case

The Samsung Galaxy S10e has a strong camera, so why not buy a case that will take advantage of that? This case connects with Moment’s range of high-quality lenses, so you can add a fish eye effect, zoom in with a telephoto lens, or get in close with a macro lens. Each lens is expensive, but don’t let that put you off the case in the first place. It’s made from TPU, so resists drops and bumps quite well, and there’s a loop for a lanyard as well. The TPU is grippy too, making it easy to keep a hold of while you get into those awkward angles for a shot. While it’s expensive, it’s a must if you’re interested in Moment’s lenses.

Speck Presidio Grip

For a perfect marriage of style and substance, the Presidio Grip case by Speck is perfect. This tough blend of hard polycarbonate with flexible TPE to absorb shock will prevent drop damage, even from falls of up to 10 feet, and a raised lip goes all the way around that precious screen. To aid your grip and provide a stylish flourish, rubber strips run across the back and sides. The openings are precise, the button covers are big and easy to find without looking, and wireless charging works just fine with the case on.

UAG Monarch Case

UAG Monarch Case for Samsung Galaxy S10e

You get rugged protection in an eye-catching package with the Monarch case from Urban Armor Gear. This case is every bit as tough as it looks, combining five layers to ensure your Galaxy S10e is covered from every angle. Leather panels and the metallic frame give it a dramatic look, while the impact-resistant core and reinforced corners ensure drops are nothing to fear. This case exceeds military drop-test standards. The openings are generous, there are big, responsive button covers, and it doesn’t interfere with wireless charging. We like the crimson version, but you can get it in plain black or with carbon fiber panels instead of leather.

Incipio NGP

Incipio NGP Case for Samsung Galaxy S10e

This slim case is ideal for basic protection and won’t interfere with any of your Galaxy S10e’s functions. It’s made from Incipio’s Flex2O material which enhances grip and guards against minor drops from up to 3 feet. There’s a raised bezel around the screen, accurate cutouts, and tactile button covers. The top two-thirds of the back are translucent, allowing you to see Samsung’s design, and a matte finish on the bottom adds some style. This case comes in clear, black, or pink varieties.

Skech Polo Book

Skech Polo Book Case for Samsung Galaxy S10e

For a smart, versatile design, the Polo Book from Skech is hard to beat. There’s a slim, minimal hard case for your Galaxy S10e that is detachable from the wallet portion. It slots back into place thanks to a magnetic back that will also work with magnetic car mounts. The wallet has three slots for cards and a windowed slot for your ID, as well as a larger pocket for cash. It can also be folded to act as a landscape stand and it has a magnetic closure. This case comes in black or gold varieties.

Pelican Voyager Case

Pelican Voyager Case for Samsung Galaxy S10e

If you want really solid protection, the four-layer Pelican Voyager case could be a good bet. It promises your Galaxy S10e will emerge unscathed from the usual falls — it has been tested and is guaranteed to survive at least 26 times dropped from 4 feet. This is a chunky case and it extends a protective frame around the screen of your S10e. It comes with a detachable holster with a kickstand and swiveling belt clip. The plain black version has some simple lines for an understated style, and there’s also a clear and gray version, though these aren’t the best-looking cases around, focused as they are on protection.

Otterbox Commuter Series Case

Otterbox Commuter Series Case for Samsung Galaxy S10e

This two-layer case isn’t the most protective that Otterbox offers, but it should still keep your S10e safe from harm and it’s less bulky and restrictive than cases like the Defender. You’ll find well-defined button covers, textured sides for enhanced grip, raised bezels to protect the screen, port covers, and accurate openings. It comes in plain black or a couple of two-tone color combinations. As it’s an Otterbox case you do get a lifetime warranty with it.

Spigen Ultra Hybrid Case

Spigen Ultra Hybrid Case for Samsung Galaxy S10e

It can be frustrating to cover up your gorgeous new phone with a plastic case, so you may prefer to choose a slim, clear option that won’t obscure Samsung’s design. Spigen’s Ultra Hybrid case combines a polycarbonate back panel with a flexible TPU bumper that will take the sting out of bumps and minor drops. There are good button covers and generous openings, so you’ll have no trouble plugging in different charging cables. Wireless charging is also unaffected by this case. The protection is completed by a raised bezel that safeguards the screen. This case comes in a crystal clear version or a black version with a matte finish on the bumper and a translucent tint on the back.

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Hybrid Case

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Hybrid Case for Samsung Galaxy S10e

Better known for solid, rugged protection at affordable prices, Supcase has branched out with a new case line that’s much more stylish. It combines a clear polycarbonate back with a flexible TPU bumper to provide decent drop protection without adding too much bulk. The rounded bumper extends front and back to stop the screen or back panel from touching down on surfaces. You’ll also find accurate cutouts. The only thing we’re not so keen on is the flush volume buttons as they don’t really stand out at all. If you don’t like the purple and pink versions, there’s a black and gray option.

Caseology Parallax Case

Caseology Parallax Case for Samsung Galaxy S10e

This is a familiar combination of flexible TPU and hard polycarbonate, but Caseology has added some serious visual flair with an eye-catching geometric pattern on the back. The hard, rounded bumper adds rigidity, the shell inside absorbs shock, and there are accurate openings. The button covers are also pronounced, so they’re easy to find and use without looking. With air cushions in the corners and a raised lip around the screen, this case should guard against drop damage quite effectively.

Samsung S-View Flip Case

Samsung S-View Flip Case for Samsung Galaxy S10e

This official Galaxy S10e case is overpriced, but it’s undeniably cool. The flip cover opens like a book, and when closed you can see the time, date, remaining battery, and new notifications — you can even tap and swipe to pick up incoming calls or control music without opening the cover. Your S10e sits in a protective shell with a glossy, rounded finish that makes it comfortable to hold. There are very generous openings for everything and it won’t interfere with wireless charging. This case is also very slim for a folio-style case, but we think drop protection will be quite limited. It comes in black, white, or yellow.
