Mous Limitless 3.0 Case in Walnut for the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, showing the rear of the case.

Mous Limitless 3.0 Case

Pros
  • Features impact-absorbing AiroShock technology
  • Supports wireless charging
  • Stylish
Cons
  • Expensive

The Limitless 3.0 case from Mous is a classic choice for those looking for a sleek, stylish, high-quality case. We love the Walnut version, pictured, but this case also comes in Bamboo, black leather, aramid fiber, or a speckled black and white fabric variant. Made from durable TPU and PC, this case features impact-absorbing AiroShock technology to protect against drops and bumps, with a microfiber internal lining to keep your phone safe from scratches. Raised top and bottom edges stop your screen from ever touching down, while the AutoAlignPlus technology included in each case means you can use your case with a variety of magnetic accessories, from Mous’s range (which includes a cool magnetic card wallet) to Apple’s MagSafe Wireless Charger. Each Mous case also comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

VRS Design Damda Glide Pro Case

Pros
  • Acts as a total wallet case
  • Features a secret compartment
  • Metal base offers drop protection
Cons
  • Cards reported visible through case

Forget traditional wallet cases — with this case from VRS Design you can leave your wallet at home while keeping your cards and cash a secret. A semi-automatic hidden compartment on the rear of the case slides smoothly open to reveal space for three to four cards and cash, while a durable TPU body with a metal base bar provides superior, shockproof drop protection for your phone. Raised bezels around the screen and camera round out the protection on offer from this unique wallet case.

Samsung S View Cover in Lavender for Samsung Galaxy S21 FE.

Samsung S View Cover

Pros
  • Offers full body protection
  • Full functionality through closed cover
  • Antimicrobial coating repels bacteria
Cons
  • Expensive

Don’t want to shell out on a case and screen protector for your new phone? Samsung’s S-View Cover provides 360-degree protection, so no need for a separate screen protector. The hardshell case and flip cover keep your phone safe from drops, bumps, and scratches, and thanks to the panel on the front you can answer calls, see notifications, play and pause music, and more — all without opening the cover. There’s an antimicrobial coating to repel bacteria, and this case comes in lavender, olive, black, or white.

OtterBox Symmetry Series Clear Case on the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, showing the front and rear.

OtterBox Symmetry Series Clear Case

Pros
  • Military grade drop protection
  • Made from planet friendly recycled materials
  • Supports wireless charging
Cons
  • Expensive

You’ll pay a bit more for this clear case than some others, but OtterBox is a brand you can trust for durable protection for your phone. The Symmetry Series case is crystal clear, so you can show off whichever color of S21 FE you chose, and it protects against up to three times as many drops as military standard (MIL-STD-810G). Despite this, it’s a slim-fitting case that slips easily into a pocket, with reinforced raised edges to protect the camera and touchscreen — and it’s constructed from 50% recycled plastic, so is a planet-friendly choice too. It’s compatible with MagSafe and wireless charging, too.

Caseology Parallax Case in blue for the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE.

Caseology Parallax Case

Pros
  • Features military-grade drop protection
  • Grippy pattern
  • Supports wireless charging
Cons
  • Durability issues reported

With its Escher-inspired geometric design, you’d be forgiven for thinking Caseology’s Parallax case was all about looks. Don’t be fooled though — this dual-layer bumper case offers military-grade drop protection, and the pattern does more than just look great, it also provides 3D grippy protection. Compatible with most screen protectors, it also works with your wireless charger, so you don’t have to remove the case whenever your battery needs a boost. Raised bezels around the screen offer additional protection against bumps and drops. Pick up this case in Midnight Blue, pink, or matte black.

Spigen Rugged Armor Case

Pros
  • Pleasing matte finish
  • Rugged protection
  • Shock absorbing interior
Cons
  • Durability issues reported

Spigen’s a name you can trust when it comes to rugged cases, and the Rugged Armor case is one of its bestsellers. Available in a sleek matte black finish, this flexible TPU and carbon fiber case boasts air cushion technology to absorb shock from bumps or drops. An interior raised spider web pattern helps absorb and disperse shock, while a raised lip around the screen keeps your display safe from harm.

Kate Spade New York Hollyhock Case

Pros
  • Gorgeous clear design
  • Six-foot drop protection
  • Supports wireless charging
Cons
  • Exterior feels sticky to some

If you’re after a case with a bit more visual appeal, Kate Spade New York delivers. The Hollyhock case not only features a crystal clear design that shows off your phone, but it also has a pretty floral Hollyhock pattern in white, grey, and pink, with sparkly crystals adorning the center of each flower. This case is no slouch in the protection stakes either, though, offering up to six feet of drop protection, a shock-resistant bumper, and added grips to keep your phone firmly in hand. It’s wireless charging compatible, too.

Pros
  • Features military-grade drop protection
  • Antimicrobial coating repels germs
  • Soft touch exterior
Cons
  • Exterior not grippy enough for some

This rugged case is ideal for those who are always dropping their phone. Offering military-grade drop protection, it also features a raised bezel around the screen which keeps your display safe from scratches or shattering, should it land face down. There’s a built-in antimicrobial coating that reduces stain and odor-causing bacteria on the case by 99%, and this case’s soft-touch coating feels great in your hand while adding extra grip. Pick it up in classic black or Coastal Blue.

Poetic Guardian Rugged Clear Case

Pros
  • Anti-scratch polycarbonate clear back
  • Built-in screen protector
  • Military-grade drop protection
Cons
  • Not water resistant

If you’ve ordered one of the S21 FE’s more interesting colors, show it off with this clear, rugged case from Poetic.

Olixar Genuine Leather Wallet for Samsung Galaxy S21 FE.

Olixar Leather Wallet Case

Pros
  • Made of genuine leather
  • Includes interior card slots
  • Folds back into a handy viewing stand
Cons
  • Not the most stylish

No list of phone cases is complete without a classic, genuine leather wallet. This one from Olixar is our pick, and it looks as good at work as it does on the weekend. Crafted from real, soft leather, it will develop a gorgeous, worn patina over time, making each case unique. Open the magnetic clasp and you’ll find two slots inside, perfect for cards, cash, or ID — and because this case offers all-around protection, you won’t need a separate screen protector, either. The case folds back into a handy stand for hands-free video calls or catching up on your favorite Netflix show on the go.

Case-Mate Twinkle Stardust case with silver glitter on the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE.

Case-Mate Twinkle Stardust Case

Pros
  • Unique sparkling design
  • Ten-foot drop protection
  • Built-in antimicrobial protection
Cons
  • Design is too garish for some

It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that bling! Ok, so that’s not quite how the song goes, but it applies to this case pretty well. Packed with more sparkle than a starry night, the Twinkle Stardust case from Case-Mate is the ideal antidote to grey, cold winter days. You might be surprised to learn this case packs plenty of protection too — in fact, it protects against drops from up to 10 feet, is compatible with wireless charging, and has MicroPel antimicrobial protection built-in too. Unlike some other glitter cases, the glitter here is embedded into the clear case, creating a flat surface — so it won’t rub off, and you won’t end up with sparkly pockets or a twinkling bag, however great that might sound.

Crave Dual Guard Case in Forest Green for Samsung Galaxy S21 FE.

Crave Dual Guard Case

Pros
  • Dual-layer TPU and polycarbonate protection
  • Grippy exterior
  • Supports wireless charging
Cons
  • Online case colors are deceptive

This case comes in a rainbow assortment of nine colors, although we love the subtle-yet-stylish Forest Green, pictured. As well as looking great, the Dual Guard case offers dual-layer TPU and polycarbonate protection, absorbing shock from drops and bumps, while remaining compact and slim enough to slip into a pocket. A grippy finish makes it less likely you’ll drop your new phone, and tactile button covers feel pleasing to press. This case comes with a lifetime warranty, and is compatible with wireless charging too — what more could you ask for?
