Best Galaxy S10 5G Cases Android Central 2019

The great thing about the Android smartphone market is that there are many manufacturers that are setting the pace of what a phone can do. This is true with Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, which is not only larger than the S10 Plus, 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.

Tried and true: Spigen Tough Armor

See-through defense: X-Doria Defense Shield

The X-Doria Defense Shield is a rather impressive case considering the fact that it's machined from a block of aluminum, which turns into the bumper shell. It has a soft rubber interior with a cutout on the outside for an integrated audio channel. This allows for a better surround sound experience.

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

While it may seem like the Galaxy S10 5G only has different internals than its brother the Galaxy S10 Plus, 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 Plus.

The included quad-camera system and 4,500mAh battery adds 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 almost stands alone due to its substantive price tag. That means you will want to make sure that your investment is protected and need an excellent case in order to do so.

For those looking for a thinner case, we can't help but recommend the Spigen Thin Fit, but the Tough Armor adds just a little bit more bulk and a lot more protection. If you need the most protection, you couldn't go wrong with the X-Doria Defense Shield because who doesn't want a case that is machined from a block of aluminum?
