The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 was the first update of its original breakthrough foldable phone. This iteration enhanced the first-generation Galaxy Fold with a modern style featuring a bezel-less front screen, punch-hole selfie cameras, and an updated hinge system. But even though the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is here, getting your hands on an older foldable phone doesn’t come cheap, and the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G model still costs around $1,800. At that price, you’re unlikely to leave your phone open to the elements, so we recommend investing in a case. Here are some of the best Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 cases out there.

VRS Design QuickStand Pro Case
- Rugged dual-layer protection
- Built-in adjustable kickstand
- Raised bezel around screen and camera
- May not actually be compatible with wireless charging
The rugged design of VRS Design's QuickStand Pro case might not be for everyone, but personally, we love its chunky good looks. There's an inner TPU core, outer polycarbonate shell, and built-in kickstand that adjusts to multiple viewing angles — great for hands-free Netflix binges or video calls. Though it looks like it belongs in a sci-fi movie, its down-to-earth protection ensures your phone stays safe from drops, bumps, and scratches, with a raised bezel around the screens and camera to stop them from ever touching down. This case comes in black, silver, or the rather cool Mystic Bronze to perfectly complement your phone. Though the manufacturer claims it's wireless charging compatible, some Amazon reviews suggest otherwise, so you might want to look elsewhere if this is important to you.
Spigen Slim Armor Pro Case
- Extreme drop and shock resistance
- Edge protection technology keeps hinge safe
- Premium feel
- Expensive compared to some other cases
Spigen is a name you can rely on for superior protection — and the Slim Armor Pro is the ideal choice if you’re somewhat of a clumsy type (no judgment here). Available in sleek black or cool bronze, this case packs in extra foam for shock resistance, dual-layer protection, and “Air Cushion” tech, with small air pockets in each corner of the case to absorb impact from drops and bumps. The Slim Armor case also features edge protection technology, which keeps the Galaxy Z Fold 2’s hinge safe, and it’s made with premium materials, so you can fold and unfold it as many times as you like without worrying about its durability. If we had to say anything negative, it's that it's the most expensive case on our list, so budget-conscious buyers may want to look elsewhere. However, we think it's worth every penny.
Ringke Slim Case
- Dual-layer protection
- Slim yet tough
- Anti-slip grip
- Wireless charging compatible
- Camera bezel means phone doesn't lay flat when unfolded
This slender case from Ringke is built from two layers, combining a tough polycarbonate outer layer with a more flexible inner layer. Together, they’ll protect your Galaxy Z Fold 2 against everyday knocks and falls while also guarding against scratches. The case also offers an anti-slip surface that will reduce your chances of accidentally dropping the phone. The case, which comes in black, clear, and matte clear, is only 1.2mm thick, making it easy to handle, easy to remove, and easy to slide into pockets and bags. It also makes it compatible with wireless charging. You can even attach your own wrist or neck strap to the built-in lanyard hole. If we're nitpicking, the raised bezel around the camera does mean your Z Fold 2 won't lie flat when unfolded, but that's the price you pay for a protected camera.
Olixar Fortis Case
- Dual-layer construction for superior protection
- Minimal, lightweight design
- Raised bezels around screen and cameras
- Not the most durable case
This is a discreet yet highly durable case that will look sleek and fine while also keeping the phone underneath looking great. It features a dual-layer construction that uses a shock-proof PC exterior to preserve your Galaxy Z Fold 2 from drops and other damage. It also includes raised bezels around the front screen and rear cameras, keeping the display and lenses out of reach from impacts and cut-outs for the main ports and features of the phone. As a bonus, its minimal design complements that of the Galaxy Z Fold 2, while the case’s lightweight build makes it fully compatible with wireless charging. The only downside? Reviews suggest this isn't the most durable case around for the money.
Spigen Ultra Hybrid Case
- Clear case shows off your phone
- TPU bumper for drop protection
- Raised bezels around the screen and camera
- No spine protection
If you nabbed a Galaxy Z Fold 2 in eye-catching Mystic Bronze, you definitely want to show that color (and your new phone) off, but you also want to protect your phone, so what do you do? Grab a clear case. Spigen’s Ultra Hybrid is a gorgeous clear case with a black border that uses a crystal-clear polycarbonate back to show off your phone while also keeping it protected. A TPU bumper adds drop resistance, and raised bezels allow your phone to rest safely on surfaces. While there’s no spine protection, it’s still great everyday protection.
Official Samsung Leather Cover Case
- Genuine calfskin leather
- Slim profile doesn't add bulk
- Available in a range of different colors
- No protection for phone spine
This case is Samsung’s official release, and the leather and overall design work together well, making it look sleek and classic. The genuine calfskin leather allows you to keep an excellent grip on the case, and it’s sturdy enough to provide quality protection without making your phone feel bulky. The cover clips onto each separate part of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 but doesn’t cover the spine, which is unfortunate. Still, if you want your case to complement your style straight from the vendor, this case is hard to beat. Note that different color variations may carry different price tags, with black being the least expensive.
KeziHome Leather Wallet Case
- Genuine leather wallet
- RFID shield technology protects your cards
- Choice of colors
- Not compatible with the fingerprint reader
There’s nothing quite like the feel of genuine leather, and this leather wallet case from KeziHome lets you enjoy a grain leather case for your Galaxy Z Fold 2 for under $40. It’s available in five different two-tone colors — black/brown, gray/brown, khaki/brown, red/brown, and navy blue/brown — but our pick is the black-brown option, which looks sleek and sophisticated. Over time, the leather will develop a gorgeous patina that makes every case totally unique. Inside, there’s a flexible, soft TPU inner case, three card slots, and a handy pocket for cash or documents. This is the case to get if privacy is a concern too, as it features RFID Shield technology to protect your bank cards from unauthorized scanners. A secure magnetic closure keeps the case firmly shut in your pocket or bag. This case is a great option if you’re looking for 360-degree protection — no separate screen protector required (although we’d probably still have one, just in case). On the downside, reviews suggest this case isn't compatible with the fingerprint reader.
Araree Premium Taiga Pattern Case
- High-quality synthetic leather
- Doubles as a kickstand
- Magnetic flap for secure closure
- Not real leather
Here’s a lovely leather wallet case that is durable as well as stylish. It’s made of synthetic leather, yet it looks modern and streamlined, complementing the Galaxy Z Fold 2’s design pretty well. Its use of faux leather in tandem with an underlying PC layer also means that it will withstand the vast majority of accidents that come its way, while its flap also lets you close it securely. The case also doubles as a convenient kickstand, so you can watch videos and take calls without needing to cradle the phone in your hands all the time. It may not be for you if you prefer genuine leather, though.
Slickwraps Deep Space Skin
- Vinyl skin doesn't add bulk
- Protection from scratches, dirt, and fingerprints
- Cool starfield design
- Doesn't provide any drop protection
When you fold the Galaxy Z Fold 2, it’s on the thicker side for a device, so you may not want to add additional bulk to it with a case. That’s where skins come in. The Deep Space skin from Slickwraps puts the galaxy back into your Galaxy phone, adding a starfield effect to the exterior. It’s easy to apply and remove, and the vinyl material feels good in the hand. It’s sleek and slim, but it’s worth pointing out that you won’t get too much protection from the skin. It adds resistance to scratches, dirt, and fingerprints, but drops will still be just as dangerous.
