The best Galaxy Tab S4 cases and covers

The best Galaxy Tab S4 cases to keep your tablet safe and sound

Julian Chokkattu/Digital Trends

Tablets allow you to unlock all the processing power of a desktop or laptop computer in the palm of your hand. However, they’re every bit as fragile as your smartphone, so you’ll need to keep your device protected from the dangers of day to day life.

We’ve rounded up some of the best and most feature-rich cases that are available today for your ultra-powerful Samsung Galaxy Tab S4.

Skinomi TechSkin Dark Wood Skin ($20)

Covering a device with a case just isn’t acceptable for people who want their device to feel as slim as it does straight out of the box. But a completely uncovered device can attract scratches, so grab yourself a protective skin rather than a case. This skin from Skinomi attaches to your device with adhesive, and comes off easily. Made from a thin but tough material, it’ll protect against scratches, but not so much against drops. It comes in a huge variety of styles, so if you’re not taken by the Dark Wood skin, you can pick up a Brushed Aluminum or Carbon Fiber one instead.

Olixar Leather-Style Stand Case ($23)

Looking for something simple to protect your tablet and help it function as a media center? Look no further than this effective stand case from Olixar. It’s made from leather-style PU leather — not real leather at this price — but still looks great when placed on your Tab S4. It’s also durable and easy to keep clean. The front cover stays over your tablet when not in use, protecting the screen, and it can be folded back behind the tablet into a stand for easy video watching, or for use with a Bluetooth keyboard. The back cover is made from hard polycarbonate, and the whole thing has a sleek and stylish look that won’t be out of place in any setting.

Poetic Turtleskin ($17)

If you’re expecting your tablet to do a lot of legwork, then you might want some more serious protection to keep it safe. Poetic’s line of phone cases has a great record, but don’t overlook its tablet cases. The Turtleskin case is made from kid-friendly silicone, with textures around the sides that help with grip. It’s thick and protective, with special shock-absorbing corners and additional heat vents to help keep your tablet cool. It’s not the slimmest and most subtle of cases, but it’s super-protective, and even comes with a stylus holder to keep it held tightly when not in use.

iCarryAlls Crazy Horse Padfolio Organizer ($89)

While not really a case, this Padfolio organizer from iCarryAlls is a fantastic choice if your Galaxy Tab S4 is just part of your daily kit as you travel from place to place. Your tablet is kept safe and snug in the back of the organizer, but is still ready at a moment’s notice. In front of that, you’ll find space for an A4 pad of paper, a phone pocket, multiple spaces for pens, cards and and lots of handy extra pockets. There’s room for another pad of paper too, making this the ultimate organizer for note-taking. It then zips up fully, completely covering all your kit. The outside is made from genuine leather, while the inside is lined with soft microfiber, keeping all your valuables safe. Not keen on the above design? There are other options available, with variations on what can be carried.Buy it now from:

Official Samsung Keyboard Cover ($150)

Samsung’s official keyboard case is one of the slickest cases you can buy to turn your tablet into a productivity machine. It’s made from tough polycarbonate to resist damage, and while it won’t be as protective as some bulkier cases, it’ll still do a good job keeping your tablet safe and secure. The real magic is the keyboard though — it connects via pogo pins, and once activated, it automatically starts the Tab S4’s DeX mode, giving a Windows-like experience on your Android tablet. There’s even an S Pen holder.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S9 may get a feature the iPad has never had
Front face of Samsung Galaxy Tab S8.

Samsung is working on bringing IP67 water and dust resistance to its Galaxy Tab S9 devices, a new report claims. This comes from the fairly reliable Samsung-focused tech blog SamMobile. The company is expected to launch its next-gen Tab S devices in roughly six months, having adopted an 18-month cycle since 2020.

The report notes that this would be distinct from the Active Tab series, which Samsung sells as a rugged alternative to its regular Galaxy S tablets. Samsung's previous Galaxy S tablets had not been equipped with any form of IP rating, though the company had extended it to the similarly sized Fold-series.

A new version of the Galaxy S23 is coming — and it could be the best one yet
Holding the green Samsung Galaxy S23.

Samsung is reportedly bringing back the "Fan Edition" formula for a budget flagship this year by serving up a watered-down version of the Galaxy S23 to smartphone shoppers on a budget. A Korean outlet reports that Samsumg will likely launch a Galaxy S23 Fan Edition sometime in August or September this year.

The Fan Edition formula first arrived in 2020 to replace the trend of “Lite” versions of Samsung flagships. The Galaxy S20 FE marked the start, and Samsung subsequently promised to release Fan Edition versions of its flagships for the foreseeable future. The Galaxy S21 FE continued the trend, but owing to supply chain uncertainties and production woes, Samsung didn’t give the same treatment to the Galaxy S22 series.
