This vivid aqua case from SaharaCase stands out in a crowd for all the right reasons.

We love that this case includes a raised bezel around the screen for added protection against drops and scrapes. There’s even an in-built S Pen holder to keep your stylus on hand. However, it’s on the expensive side for a tablet case.

  • Supports auto sleep/wake function
  • S Pen storage

Onboard storage for the S Pen inside the cover is also handy when traveling. Pick this case up in a choice of five colors — we’d go for the light green, pictured. However, it will set you back a pretty penny.
