The best Samsung Galaxy Fold cases and covers

The Samsung Galaxy Fold created a new category for smartphones: The foldable tablet phone. Back when it was released, manufacturers had to scurry to make cases and covers to protect this unusual design. 

The best cases and covers for the Galaxy Fold need to accommodate the flexibility of the device. They also need to be protective, lightweight, and manageable in size. If you’re lucky enough to own one of these stunning phones, we’ve found some of the best Samsung Galaxy Fold cases around that will protect your device while showing off its design. 

These cases are designed for the Samsung Galaxy Fold, but we’ve also rounded up some of the best cases for the Galaxy Z Fold 2.

Olixar Fortis Case

When you drop so much money on a new phone, you want to be sure it’s totally protected from whatever life throws at you — which is where the Fortis case from Olixar steps in. Don’t be fooled by its slim lines, as this is one rugged case, constructed from dual-layer TPU and polycarbonate. The shock absorbent, impact-resistant material features a raised bezel around the back camera and front screen, keeping even the most delicate parts of your Galaxy Fold safe from harm. The sleek, matte finish not only looks great but has a grippy finish too, keeping your phone firmly in your hand. For a $30 case, this is hard to beat.

Otterbox Symmetry Series Flex Case

While the Galaxy Fold is unlikely to get confused for many other phones, it’s still nice not to have to hide it behind thick plastic. Otterbox’s Symmetry Series Flex is completely clear and allows you to show off your expensive phone to the world. It’s still protective though, being made from hard polycarbonate and shock-absorbent TPU. It will resist scratches, dirt, and smudgy fingerprints, while also providing good protection against drops and everyday hazards. On the minus side, while the two-part build protects the front and back of the phone, there’s no protection for the spine, which could be a turn-off for those wanting complete coverage. It’s also very expensive.

Spigen Thin Fit Case

If sleek, thin protection is preferable, Spigen’s Thin Fit case may be perfect for you. It’s made from thin but strong polycarbonate, and clips easily onto your phone. The tough material will deflect scratches and other such hazards, but it probably won’t fare as well against drops as a more absorbent material would. But even with that in mind, Spigen’s case is an excellent choice. The polycarbonate has special non-slip pads so you don’t drop your investment, and the sleek build means you can keep using wireless charging. On the minus side, there’s no spine protection, and the areas around the buttons are also bare, leaving them open to scratches. Still, it’s not a bad price and it looks and feels great. It comes in a vibrant blue, green, silver, or matte black.

iCoverCase Card Slot Case

The Samsung Galaxy Fold can add some heft in your pocket, and adding a wallet makes it more uncomfortable. Enter the Card Slot case by iCoverCase. The case offers a slim and elegant look for your Galaxy Fold with its genuine leather design. And the built-in card slot on the back adds the functionality that you’d get from a normal wallet. While the slot can only hold one card, it will be just enough for those who usually rely on mobile payments — which the Galaxy Fold is capable of. Priced under $30, this is an affordable accessory that will give your smartphone more grip and functionality. It’s available in orange, black, red, gray, or blue.

Noreve Leather Cover

Perhaps you fancy something that looks and feels a little more luxurious than plastic. Leather is the premium material of choice for many, and Noreve makes some of the best covers available. Noreve’s leather cover is made from top-quality handcrafted leather that provides protection while also looking and feeling incredible. It has a slim design but includes some padding for comfort, and it clips simply onto your phone’s frame. It’s also highly customizable; for a fee, Noreve will change the color, add a custom engraving, and even gift wrap it if you’re sending it to a special someone. Of course, those extra customizations don’t come cheap, and the price listed below is just the starting point for Noreve’s leather covers. Aside from the high price tag, there’s also no spine protection, which is a downside.

UAG Monarch Series

UAG knows protection, and the Monarch series for the Galaxy Fold is proof of that. The soft felt-lined interior and impact-resistant core help to keep your expensive phone safe from routine drops and bumps.

Of course, you’re less likely to drop the case thanks to the honeycomb pattern that lends grip to your fingertips. This case offers extreme built-in protection for the spine, ensuring that the most precious and vulnerable area is safe, and while open, the spine of the case becomes a hand-hold, which makes using the unfolded phone a whole lot easier for you.

The downside to that spine protection is that your phone won’t lay completely flat on level surfaces. However, if you consider how much you paid for that Samsung Galaxy, to begin with, dishing out a little extra cash for better protection might be well worth your while.

Official Samsung Genuine Leather Case

We aren’t surprised that Samsung would produce one of the most incredible cases to safeguard their Galaxy phones. They offer a variety of excellent options, but some customers may not appreciate the limited selection when they compare it to other brands. This specific case is unique, making it a force to be reckoned with in the phone case manufacturing industry. 

The Official Samsung Genuine Leather case features an authentic calfskin material, making it smooth and satisfying to the touch. The material makes for a soft yet sturdy case with a firm grip that can protect your phone from accidental drops and falls. The sleek design and stylish appearance make this case a fantastic option for those seeking a more professional look. 

Sadly, this case doesn’t include spine protection, which leaves the back of your phone vulnerable to damage. Some customers might be frightened when they see the $130 price, but if you can afford to pay, this genuine leather case will give you plenty of protection, aesthetic appeal, and a classy style.
