The best Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra cases and covers

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is Samsung’s latest Note device, and although it’s coming up on a year old, it’s still an impressive beast. With a stunning 6.9-inch AMOLED display, a triple-camera setup with Space Zoom, and a whopping 4,500mAh battery, it demands superior protection against drops and scratches. From rugged and protective cases to ones that are eco-friendly, we’ve rounded up some of the best Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra cases and covers to keep your new phone safe and secure.

Note: These cases are designed for the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, but we’ve also picked out some of the best Galaxy Note 20 cases.

Mous Limitless 3.0 Case

The Limitless 3.0 Case in black Aramid Fiber for the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.

Mous knows a thing or two about protecting phones from the most extreme drops and bumps, and the Limitless 3.0 case is no exception. Constructed with polycarbonate and TPU — the same materials used in riot shields — this case boasts AiroShock technology for excellent drop protection and has raised top and bottom edges to keep your Note 20 Ultra’s screen from ever touching down. Mous puts its phone cases through extreme drop tests, and each case comes with a limited lifetime warranty and a 30-day money-back guarantee. We love the cool Aramid Fibre version, but you can also pick this case up in walnut or a black and white speckled fabric design. Even better, you can use the case with Mous’ range of magnetic accessories — like their cool card wallet, which uses AutoAlignPlus technology.

Tech21 Evo Wallet Case

Tech21 Evo Wallet Case in black for the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 UltraSlim, sleek, and offering up to 12 feet of drop protection, the Evo Wallet Case from Tech21 is one of our favorites. Not only does it feature a super-durable construction to protect against drops and bumps, but there’s also an antimicrobial formula built in, which reduces microbes by up to 99.99%. The case folds out into a convenient stand for hands-free viewing or that all-important video meeting with your boss, and there’s a pocket that nicely fits up to two bank cards, making this the perfect accessory to slip into your pocket. At $20, the price isn’t going to break the budget either.

Ghostek Atomic Slim Case

Ghostek Atomic Slim Case with red bumpers for the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

Love clear cases but don’t want to compromise on protection for your new phone? The Atomic Slim series from Ghostek gives you the best of both worlds: A clear case with a rugged heavy-duty bumper to keep your Note 20 Ultra safe, whatever life throws at it. Available in clear with pink, red, or black bumpers, this case offers military-grade drop protection for drops up to 12 feet. Raised bumpers run around the case edges to keep it safe, while a sturdy bezel around the camera and screen protects against scratches and cracks. There’s rugged, shockproof protection in each corner too, so this really is the ultimate case to get if you’re prone to dropping your phone. Speaking of drops, this case has a secure grip, so your phone’s less likely to slip through your fingers. It’s not the cheapest option on our list, but it’s a worthwhile investment for anyone serious about rugged protection.

Snakehive Vintage Leather Wallet

Snakehive Vintage Leather Wallet in navy for the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.

You can’t beat a classic leather wallet case, and this one from Snakehive comes in a rainbow array of colors including green, plum, brown, black, teal, gray, and this classic navy version. But the best thing about this case is that it’s crafted from high-quality European Nubuck grain leather with a suede-like finish that feels great in your hand. It’s far more than just a pretty case though — there are three card slots for your bank cards and ID, a handy slot for cash, and a kickstand that folds out in landscape, great for hands-free Netflix binges or video calls. The inner plastic case holds your Note 20 Ultra firmly in place, and there’s a magnetic closure to keep the leather wallet shut, providing 360-degree protection for your phone — no screen protector required. Snakehive is so confident you’ll be delighted with your case, they offer a 30-day money-back guarantee and 12-month warranty.

Incipio DualPro Case

Incipio DualPro case for the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra in black.

Keeping your phone safe doesn’t have to mean compromising on slim, sleek style, as this case from Incipio proves. It’s super slim and lightweight yet boasts two layers of military-grade protection. Your Note 20 Ultra is protected against drops from up to 10 feet, with a scratch-resistant hard polycarbonate shell and a shock-absorbent inner core. You can opt for the black version or pick this case up in metallic red and black if you fancy something a bit more eye-catching. For $30, this is one of the most protective slim cases around.

Olixar Leather Wallet Case

You can’t beat a sleek leather wallet case for all-round protection and classic style, and this one from Olixar is our pick of the bunch. Crafted from premium genuine soft-grain leather with a stitched finish, its streamlined design means it won’t add bulk to your Note 20 Ultra — great if you like to stow your phone in your pocket. Providing 360-degree protection for the back and front of your phone, it has interior slots for all your cards, ID, and cash, so there’s no need to take a separate wallet. The case folds out into a viewing stand for hands-free movies or video calls. What more could you ask for?

Gear4 Battersea Case

The ultimate protection for your phone doesn’t have to come at the cost of superior style — as this case from Gear4 shows. Constructed with a D30 reinforced backplate and frame, the same material used by pro athletes and the military, it promises up to 16 feet of drop protection in a slim, lightweight shell. It feels great in your hand, too, thanks to its soft-touch finish, yet boasts a textured grip to reduce the chances of your phone slipping through your fingers. Available in black with subtle orange detailing, this case is wireless charging compatible.

VRS Design Damda Glide Pro NASA Card Case

We’re over the moon for this next case, which is certified by none other than NASA. VRS Design’s out-of-this-world case features card storage for up to four cards, cleverly hidden behind a sturdy, semi-automatic sliding back compartment. It’s constructed from TPU, with a real metal stripe to provide superior drop protection, and is stain, fingerprint, and scratch resistant. Don’t let the fact the case materials may interfere with wireless charging bring you back down to earth with a bump, as this case isn’t astronomically priced — in fact, it’s well worth your hard-earned cash.

Urban Armor Gear Monarch Case

When you think of rugged cases, you picture something bulky, thick, and stacked with multiple layers of plastic. While the Monarch by Urban Armor Gear isn’t as tank-like as you might imagine, it’s definitely built like one. UAG cases have made it onto many of our previous roundups, and there’s a reason why. The Monarch is constructed with top-quality material that keeps your phone well-protected. The sides are indented with a honeycomb pattern that gives you just the right amount of grip to handle the Note 20 Ultra. There are reinforced corners all around the case, which contributes to its 2X MIL-STD drop-test certification. With a slick carbon fiber back design and a 10-year warranty, the Monarch is a must for those who want to keep their phones in pristine condition.

Speck Presidio 2 Grip Case

The Speck Presidio 2 Grip is a classic that packs a one-two punch of comfort and durability. It features the iconic no-slip bands that spread throughout the back and sides of the case, and what Speck calls Armor Cloud technology for drop protection (up to 13 feet). You have generous cutouts throughout the Presidio 2 Grip for the speakers, USB-C port, and easy access to the S Pen. The case also has a soft-touch finish that feels comfortable to hold, is scratch-resistant, and is bacteria-free thanks to the Microban protection. Included is a lifetime warranty so Speck will replace your case if anything goes awry.

OtterBox Symmetry Series Case

OtterBox cases are the way to go if you want to keep your Note 20 Ultra looking fresh and scuff-free. The company offers a variety of cases that we recommend but the Symmetry is the cream of the crop for protection and style. It’s available in a variety of fun colors like Cake Pop Pink and Earl Grey, but importantly, is built to withstand the usual bumps and drops. The case is made with polycarbonate and synthetic rubber so your Note 20 Ultra will be safeguarded from the inside and out. With OtterBox’s reputation for outstanding durability and high-quality material, the Symmetry is deserving of a spot on our list.

Spigen Tough Armor Case

As one of the old guards for cases and covers, Spigen is the first in mind for smartphone protection. Luckily for Note 20 Ultra users, its popular Tough Armor series hits the shelves just in time for the launch. With a combination of TPU and polycarbonate material, the case offers a dual-layered design that will keep your phone safe from scratches, bumps, and hard falls. It has a rubber-like backing that makes for a firm grip, which is especially important on a phone this big. However, the Tough Armor is more than just a rugged case. The built-in kickstand provides you with the best viewing pleasure when playing games or watching movies.

Ringke Air-S Case

The Note 20 Ultra is a big phone, so a thin case is your best bet if you want to keep it protected without adding more bulk. Ringke makes a great thin-style cover with the Air-S. As the name suggests, the Air-S is lightweight and thin enough to appear absent. It comes in a decent selection of colors, so you’re bound to find one that matches the aesthetic of your device. The case provides an excellent grip with its matte-textured build, and the slim profile lets you tuck it comfortably in your pocket. It also features Ringke’s QuikCatch lanyard hole for attaching a wrist or shoulder strap.

ESR Metal Kickstand Case

With eye-catching colors like Mystic White and Mystic Bronze, a clear case is the best way for you to show off the design of your new Note 20 Ultra without cutting corners on protection. The ESR Metal Kickstand Case is worth a look not just for its strong and flexible design, but for its built-in metal kickstand. The Note 20 Ultra is a multimedia powerhouse, so whether you’re playing games on the cloud or bingeing a TV show, you’ll get the best viewing angles with this attached. There are rubberized bumpers all-around for added durability and protection. A thing to note with some clear cases, including this one, is that they tend to yellow over time. The process can be slowed down by regularly swapping out this case with an alternative.

Caseology Parallax Case

Caseology is another brand that’s been in the case industry for a while now. The Parallax series is a go-to for those wanting added ergonomics and a military-grade cover. While the Parallax is a two-piece case, the overall design and theme keep its appearance subtle and minimal. The back has a hexagonal pattern that gives your fingers a place to rest when holding the phone in landscape or portrait mode. Raised bezels surround the top, bottom, and sides to keep those curved edges of the Note 20 Ultra safe when dropped. There’s also an ample amount of space at the bottom for you to access the S Pen. The Parallax is available in a variety of colors, and if you own more than one, you can mix and match the layers for added personal flair.

It's no secret that the Galaxy S23 Ultra's cameras are impressive, but it seems like the S24 Ultra may be one-upping its predecessor. Aside from the addition of its 200MP sensor, there wasn't much of a difference between the S22 Ultra's camera array and the one found on the S23 Ultra. However, a new leak suggests that the S24 Ultra will be taking a major step to elevate camera performance.

In a post to Twitter, leaker @Tech_Reve claims that the Galaxy S24 Ultra will be ditching the S23 Ultra's 3x and 10x telephoto lenses in favor of a single 3x to 10x variable folded telephoto lens. While the change may seem subtle, the difference in what the S24 Ultra can accomplish with its camera array could be vast as a result.
