Protect your tablet with a reliable case!

Why get the Tab S3 when there's the newer Tab S4 out? Well, the Tab S3 still delivers a great tablet experience that includes the almighty S Pen along expandable storage and all the other hardware features we've all come to expect from Samsung.

Even though it's older, you're still going to want to protect it. The last thing you want is your tablets slipping off a counter and crashing to the ground, so even if you only use your tablet around the house it's still worth investing in a reliable case.

Our top pick is the BRAECNstock Hybrid Protective Shield, which is one of the most rugged cases you can buy for the Galaxy Tab S3. The best feature is the rotating handstrap on the back that makes it easy to carry your tablet around your home worry-free about it slipping out of your hand and taking damage.

Maybe you're looking for a case that adds the functionality of a Bluetooth keyboard. Samsung's Keyboard Cover is our top recommendation here because Samsung always does such a great job accessorizing its own products. Of course, the Fintie Keyboard Case is your other worthwhile keyboard case that's available for a fraction of the price as Samsung's option.
