If you’ve pre-ordered a Samsung Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition) then you probably can’t wait to enjoy its 6.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate and 5G connectivity. Whichever of the six gorgeous colors you went for — from Cloud Orange to Cloud Lavender — your new Galaxy phone needs superb protection against drops and bumps. You don’t want to risk taking your phone out and about without ensuring that it’s safe, and we’ve picked some of the best cases around that offer a combination of protection and style. With the Galaxy S20 FE shipping October 2, pick up one of these cases before your new phone arrives, and you’ll be good to go.
Spigen Rugged Armor Case
Spigen’s Rugged Armor case gives you all of Spigen’s usual protection — with Air Cushion Technology to absorb shock and cushion against drops — in a flexible TPU case that has a raised lip for added screen protection. Its cool carbon fiber design gives it a sleek appearance, and the price isn’t bad either.
Official Samsung Galaxy Clear View Cover
For those who don’t want to invest in a separate screen protector, the official Clear View case from Samsung offers 360-degree protection for your phone — but the best bit is you can view your battery life, check the time, view incoming calls, or read messages without opening the case, thanks to the semi-transparent front cover. Currently available in white — although it’s likely more colors will be released — this sleek case is wireless charging compatible and is constructed from high-quality materials, hence the $60 price tag.
Olixar Leather Wallet Case
If you like to travel light, wallet cases are your best bet, and this one from Olixar offers all-round protection for your phone, whether you’re slinging it in your bag or carrying it in your pocket. With its soft leather exterior and microfiber lining to protect your screen, this wallet case is padded to provide extra protection against drops and bumps, yet still maintains a slim profile. There are two interior pockets for your cards, ID, or cash and a handy pocket for documents. The case folds out into a kickstand for hands-free video calls or web browsing. Available in black or brown, this case is an excellent choice for the price.
Caseology Parallax Case
We adore the Midnight Blue version of the Parallax case by Caseology, which showcases a unique Escher-like configuration. However, this case offers so much more than an attractive appearance. Its two layers of bumpers offer your phone military-grade security against bumps and drops and elevated bezels that protect the screen from any danger. The case also comes with a gripped exterior to keep you from dropping your phone. It also pairs well with most wireless charging and screen shields.
Case-Mate Soap Bubble Case
We can’t get enough of an oil-slick case that brightens up our lives with color and pure bliss. In all seriousness, Case-Mate’s Soap Bubble Case is eye appealing with its vibrant, colorful swirl design, all while keeping your phone protected from harm’s way. It also protects your phone from drops as high as ten feet and offers protection from microbes and scratches. This case also comes with a lifetime warranty, making it an excellent investment.
Osophter Clear Case
If you went with a bold, statement-making Galaxy S20 FE color such as Cloud Lavender or Cloud Orange, you’d want people to see it. Get this transparent case with Osophter, which keeps your phone secure while showcasing its outrageous colors. Corner bumpers made of polycarbonate and shatterproof TPU protect your phone against bumps and drops. Its raised edges keep your screen from touching surfaces beneath it, even when your phone is positioned face down on your desk or nightstand.
