Best Galaxy S10e Cases Android Central 2019

Yes, the Samsung Galaxy S10e doesn't have that fancy new ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, but that means that screen protectors aren't a special brand of confusing. The side-mounted fingerprint sensor on the S10e adds a different challenge — and to be sure, there are far fewer cases around for the S10e right now than the larger models — but that doesn't mean we don't have some top-notch cases to protect the S10e's hole-punch screen.

Clear as crystal: Spigen Liquid Crystal Air

Staff pick

The Liquid Crystal line is my favorite clear case around — well, except for the sparkly Liquid Crystal Glitter variant — because it's thin, grippy, and doesn't get in the way. Perfect port cutouts and easy application make a good case great.

Shine like a diamond: Ringke Fusion

Little brother to the Fusion X, the Fusion features clear, hard-shell backs, buff bumpers in Smoke Black, Aqua Blue, or plain Clear that aren't quite as butch as the Fusion X, but also look and feel more refined in the hand.

Redesigned favorite: Spigen Neo Hybrid

I love the Neo Hybrid Series, and it got redesigned for the S10 series with a new rear texture. That's right, friends, the Herringbone texture is gone, and I'm still not sure how I feel about that, but this case is still drop dead awesome in four colors, including this lovely Arctic Silver!

Lush leather: Galaxy S10e Leather Back Cover

Samsung's leather case comes in seven colors from a downright garish pink and yellow to a darling Red, Navy, and Green. Whichever shade you select, this case is smooth, thin, and lovely.

Smooth silicone: Galaxy S10e Silicone Cover

Samsung's official silicone case is perfectly sculpted to the S10e's every slope and curve, and no matter which color phone you get, there's one or two colors here that are sure to compliment it fabulously.

Starry Night shine: Galaxy S10e LED Back Cover

LEDs litter the back cover of this magical case and light up like a shimmery night sky when you get notifications. It's an expensive case to be sure, but so much more sophisticated than those pouring rhinetone/sequin cases.

$55 at Samsung

Gold glitter goodness: Speck Presidio Clear + Glitter

This variant of the Presidio Stay Clear features bold gold glitter flecks throughout the silicone to add some seductive shine to your S10e. The regular clear with gold flecks is sweet all on its own, but the rose gold version adds a whole new level of cuteness to the mix.

Go bold or go home: Supcase Unicorn Beetle Style

This hybrid case combines a bold TPU bumper with a hard plastic back to let the Galaxy glimmer to shine through while keeping scratches and smudges at bay. This case is available in black, too, but the two-tone purple version is just darling, isn't it?

Battle-ready: Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro

Built-in screen protectors don't play nice with ultrasonic fingerprint sensors, but the S10e doesn't have one, so Supcase could build one into the Unicorn Beetle Pro case, along with a kickstand and some port covers to keep out the grime!

$20 at Amazon

Drop-dead durable: X-Doria Defense Shield Series

This 10-ft drop tested case is proof positive that clear cases can be durable and drop-dead gorgeous without breaking the bank. This durable hybrid case comes in Red, Black, and an Iridescent you have to see to believe!

Grip it good: Speck Presidio Grip

This hard-backed case is one of the most distinctive styles on the market, with raised, rubberized ridges in a geometric pattern that is synonymous with prestigious casemaker Speck. Available in five two-tone color combinations, the Grip will help protect your S10e from drops and sweaty slips.

$40 at Speck

Thin as glass: Totallee Ultra Thin

Totallee's case is the biggest name in ultra-thin cases right now, and it comes in three styles: an opaque matte white, matte black, and a glossy TPU clear case. No matter which one you pick, you'll "totallee" be happy with this minimal case.

Thin and soft: Spigen Silicone Fit

This is a new series for Spigen, a thin, grippy little case that's designed to hug your Samsung Galaxy S10e's every curve and give you protection from bumps, nicks, and dings without adding unneccesary bulk to your phone.

Colorful as a candy bar: anccer Ultra Thin Fit

This thin case may not give you super-duty protection against drops, but the candy-shell coating it gives your S10E will give it scratch protection while keeping your ports free and unobstructed. There are two finish styles and five colors to choose from.

Ringke's entry-level TPU case is understated and dependable, giving you some drop and scratch protection without drawing unwanted attention on your shiny, breakable new phone. Available in Black and Lilac Purple.

Patterned protection: Caseology Parallax

Caseology's been a company we've trusted with our phones for years, and the Parallax's unique cubist texture on the back is grippy, mesmerizing, and shock-absorbing, all in one. The hybrid construction allows for rugged protection in a stylishly slim size.

Beauty to withstand the Beast: Spigen Tough Armor

This hybrid case comes with a classic look and a built-in kickstand. The Tough Armor Series has been my go-to rugged case for years, offering rugged protection without a terribly rugged look. Yes, it's a little thicker, but it wears the look well.

From $16 at Amazon

Premium look, low price: HNHYGETE Soft Slim

This case looks like a card-slot wallet case on first glance, but sorry, it's just a dapper-looking TPU case. It has some nice angled edges to the back as well as a leatherish texture, complete with faux stitching around the back edge.

$4 at Amazon

Slim protection: GOOSPERY Protective PU Leather Bumper Cover with Card Holder

This thin leather hybrid case does feature slim card slots and darling detailing, and the TPU inner shell ensure that it grips your S10e well and absorbs more kinetic force in a dreaded drop. Available in Black, Dark Brown, and Brown, I like the Dark Brown best because it allows the tricolor accent to really pop against the leather.

$14 at Amazon

Into thin air: ESR Essential Air

This crystal clear 1mm case is thin enough to feel like its invisible while still offering your phone protection from scuffs, slips, dings, and small drops. It won't bulk up your phone the way polycarbonate cases do.

$12 at Amazon

Crystal clear bargain: MoKo Crystal Clear

Clear cases are a bit like vodka: they're supposed to be colorless invisible that let the phone's beauty shine through. MoKo's bargain-priced model combines a rigid back with a shock-absorbing TPU bumper for thin, reliable protection. It even includes a lanyard loop on the side, if you need to tether it to your arm.

You have endless case options for the Galaxy S10e

As you can see, there are a lot of case options for the Galaxy S10e. That's great if you like having a lot to choose from, but if you're feeling a little overwhelmed, we don't blame you one bit.

For most people, we'd recommend picking up the Spigen Liquid Crystal Air. Why? It allows the S10e's striking design to shine through, doesn't add too much bulk/weight, and it's affordable. That's a winning combination if we've ever seen one, and we think most of you will be quite happy with it.

If you'd like something a bit more luxurious, the Galaxy S10e Leather Back Cover from Samsung is the way to go. Is it expensive? Yeah, but the genuine leather looks fantastic and we love how many different colors it's available in.
