The best Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 cases and covers

If you leave home with your new Tab S6, make sure it's dressed for the occasion

Whether or not you feel the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 two-in-one tablet gives the Apple iPad Pro a run for its money, the Android tablet is a delicate piece of equipment designed for both work and play and can even serve as a laptop stand-in. The Galaxy Tab S6 from Samsung is relatively small and lightweight, weighing in at less than a pound, but with a 10.5-inch glass screen. It looks similar but improves on its predecessors with a smarter design, faster performance, and a better camera.

The Tab S6 comes in some mightily attractive colors — Mountain Gray, Cloud Blue, and Rose Blush. If you choose to buy the optional Book Cover Keyboard case, it serves not only as an external keyboard complete with a trackpad for use with the tablet’s desktop-centric DeX mode, but also as a case cover. For $179, you can have the whole package with keyboard and case cover rolled into one, but that may be too high a price for someone primarily seeking a tablet and planning to use it less frequently for business or typing. Luckily, there’s always the option of purchasing a third-party cover or perhaps a less expensive keyboard-cover combo. You’ll find a wide range of cases designed specifically for Samsung’s tablet, and we’ve selected a few of the best Galaxy Tab S6 cases that stand out for their quality, convenience, and low price.

Speck Balance Folio Case

Minimal yet stylish, this Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 case from Speck will look the part while also keeping your device safe. Despite having a slim, lightweight design, its rigid plastic construction makes it capable of withstanding falls of up to 4 feet. It also includes raised edges that guard the tablet’s screen from localized damage, while the hardness of the plastic gives it anti-scratch properties. Aside from its ruggedness, it’s also highly convenient and usable, featuring a recessed magnetic cover for easy opening and closing. On top of this, it doubles as a stand, so you can watch video and talk with friends to your heart’s content.

The case is slim enough to make it easy and practical to use, while it has also been designed to serve as a rotating stand, meaning you can watch TV and movies on your tablet in either portrait or landscape orientations. Needless to say, it comes with all the necessary ports and cutouts for your Tab S6.

Dadanism Ultra Slim Lightweight Folding Stand Cover
