Best Galaxy S10 5G Cases Android Central 2020

The great thing about the Android smartphone market is that many manufacturers are setting the pace of what a phone can do. This is true with the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, which is not only larger than the S10+ but is capable of accessing the 5G network that is spreading across the country. However, those features come at a cost, and you'll want to protect your investment so you won't have to worry about accidental drops. Here are the best cases you can get for the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G.

Can I use a Galaxy S10 Plus case with the Galaxy S10 5G?

Samsung Galaxy S10 PlusSource: Android Central

While it may seem like the Galaxy S10 5G only has different internals than its brother the Galaxy S10+, that's not the case. The S10 5G sports a 6.7-inch display, compared to the 6.4-inch display found on the S10+.

The included quad-camera system and 4,500mAh battery add some additional thickness to the S10 5G, which pushes this phone even further away from the S10 lineup. With this, you'll definitely need to get a dedicated case for the S10 5G.

What would we pick?

When compared to many other devices released, the S10 5G stands alone due to its substantive price tag. That means you will want to make sure that your investment is protected with an excellent case. If protection is the name of the game, you can't go wrong with the Spigen Tough Armor with its dual-layer protection and a built-in kickstand. In addition to offering precise cutouts and a familiar design, the Tough Armor also sports Spigen's Air Cushion technology for increased shock-absorption.

Those looking for a case that is functional and protective won't want to look any further than the FYY RFID Leather Wallet. There are five different leather color choices to pick from, and the built-in RFID shielding technology will keep your credit/debit cards and ID safe from falling into the hands of the wrong people. Plus, this case doubles as a kickstand, so you can kick back and enjoy some videos on your lunch break.
