Best Clear Cases for Galaxy S10 Android Central 2020
Samsung has released another lineup of sleek and sexy smartphones that you're going to want to show off and keep protected at the same time. For the Galaxy S10, one of the best accessories you can buy is an awesome clear case. It will protect your phone from any unsightly scratches or other damage while letting the phone's color and unique design elements shine through.
- Clearly great: Spigen Liquid Crystal
- Crystal clear protection: X-Doria Defense Shield Series
- Bucking the trend: Zizo Refined Series
- Accented with color: Ringke Fusion
- Rugged clear case: OtterBox Symmetry Series
- Two layers of protection: Speck Presidio Stay Clear
If you want ample protection from a case that doesn't cover up all the fine details of the S10, you'll want to get the Spigen Liquid Crystal. It offers protection against scratches and drops, is shock absorbent, and is easy to apply and remove. It also offers the best value for a clear case.
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.
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.
Ringke's got a full lineup of cases available for the Galaxy S10, but we'll of course highlight it's always good Fusion series clear case. The case combines a rigid PC panel on the back with a shock absorbing TPU frame that's available with blue or black accents.
One of the most trusted names in smartphone cases is OtterBox. Its products are pricey, but backed by a lifetime warranty, great customer service, and most importantly, they do a great job of keeping your phone safe. The Symmetry Series case was designed to be thin and pocket-friendly while preserving the look of your new phone.
The Presidio clear case combines a rigid shell with Speck's trademark Impactium lining that is designed to absorb the shock from drops. These two materials combine to create a very reliable one-piece clear case that's thin enough to support wireless charging and also backed by a lifetime warranty.
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.
