The best Samsung Galaxy Note 20 cases are protective, grippy, and stylish. While the regular Note 20 doesn't have a glass back, it's still a big, honking phone and you shouldn't dare step out your door without protecting it with a case. From thin and colorful to ruggedly handsome, these are the cases you can trust with your new Note 20.
Clear and clean
Want to show off your lovely Mystic Green phone? The Liquid Crystal will offer grip and scratch protection while keeping things slim and sanguine. If you want a little more pop, I adore the Glitter variant!
This sustainable case is bright, cheerful, and feels wonderful in the hand. The color choices are a bit small compared to the S20+, but the bright pink case mislabeled as Red is lovely, so why would you need anything else?
The Parallax's Aqua Green adds a new level of depth to the Mystic Green Note 20, and while it may not look grippy at first, that cubist pattern across the back offers plenty of places to perch your fingers and keep your Note balanced in your hand.
This heavy-duty case is made to last, and the kickstand on the back is great in both portrait or landscape. I also use it as a phone grip from time to time. The red and purple stand out less than previous years' colors.
Want a slim but grippy case that won't draw the eye to your shiny new flagship? The Ringke Air-S's subdued color palette plays perfectly with the Note 20 line while guarding it against slips and scuffs.
This is the quintessential grip case, from Speck's trademark grooves on the back to the robust impact protection, which should help keep your screen from shattering should you face a dreadful drop.
Fit for a king
UAG knows how to make a case fit for a king, and the Monarch is that rare instance where heavy-duty and luxury overlap in a way that actually makes sense, with the leather or carbon fiber accents feeling solid and sublime in the hand.
Want a durable case that matches the color of your Note 20? Spigen offers a rugged dual-layer case in each of the Note 20 colors — Green, Bronze, and Gray — and it even sports a small kickstand for watching YouTube in the break room.
Samsung's leather cases never disappoint when it comes to fit and feel. These cases continue the somewhat natural, earthy look of the Note 20 color lineup this year, with a lovely brown and deep, deep green.
Showcase in safety
The Fusion-X has always been a divisive case, but love it or hate it, you can't deny that it's an excellent option for protecting your Note 20 while showing off those earthy colors. There's also a Camo option that will look awesome with Mystic Green.
Combine and condense
If you're going to carry a phone as big as the Note 20, you might as well spring for a wallet case so that you only need to grab your phone and go. This wallet fits three cards plus cash and has an RFID-blocking filament to prevent skimming.

The Galaxy Note 20 might be smaller than the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, but it's still a sizeable phone with a sizeable price tag, so the best cases for the Note 20 will offer grip and impact protection to protect your precious new phone. If you prefer your protection in a more streamlined form, the Spigen Liquid Crystal will let that Mystic Green or Mystic Bronze show through in full glory while still offering great grip and scratch protection.
If you prefer a more rugged case, the Speck Predisio2 Grip is grippier than ever and should help your Note 20 survive most reasonable drops; Speck says it can survive up to 13-foot drops but let's hope we never have to actually test that out. The MicroBan coating on it is nice to see, just remember that it's designed to kill odor and stain-causing bacteria, not to kill every virus spore your phone comes in contact with.
Once you've got a great case in hand, make sure to follow it up with a screen protector to keep that beautiful front glass from scratching or shattering.
