Crystal clear protection: X-Doria Defense Shield Series

X-Doria's Defense Shield proves a clear case an be ruggedly handsome, too, drop tested to 10 ft and rock-solid in the hand with a clear back and a colored bumper. The Black and Red bumper variants are fine, but the Iridescent'sl purple/green/blue shimmer is perfectly suited to the S10's Blue and Green colors — if your market is lucky enough to get green.

Bucking the trend: Zizo Refined Series

Zizo is best known for making really rugged cases that sometimes come off a bit too garish, but they really did refine things with the design of this clear case for the Galaxy S10. It's available as an entirely clear case or with simple color accents around the edges that really pop.

You clearly can't go wrong with any of these cases

We think you'll be happy with any of the cases of this list, but if you can only buy one, our top recommendation goes to the Spigen Liquid Crystal. Spigen cases are famous for being built incredibly well, and with the Liquid Crystal, you're able to show off the S10's stunning design while also getting impressive drop protection with shock absorption.

If you have a slightly larger budget, another great option is the X-Doria Defense Shield Series. It's even more rugged with a 10-foot drop test rating, and thanks to the bumper that comes in multiple color variants, you can also add some nice pizzaz that you won't find with the super basic design of the Liquid Crystal.
