Best Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus Cases Android Central 2020

Samsung is pulling out all the stops with the S20 line this year, and while most of us can't convince ourselves to shell out for an Ultra, the S20+ is no slouch by any means. Before your pre-order shows up, don't you want to have a nice cushy case waiting to keep your phone safe and pristine from the second you take your new phone out of the box? Here are the best options available so far.

Best for grip: Spigen Liquid Air

Staff pick

Spigen makes one of the most popular single-layer cases on the market, the Rugged Armor, but the Liquid Air is not only a fresher look, but it's got much, much better grip thanks to that diamond texture across the back.

$11 at Amazon

Get a grip: KuGi Anit-Slip TPU

This slim case adds much-needed grip and a little shock absorption to the delicate glass-backed S20+. Grab this TPU case in blue, black or red, because at these prices, how can you say no?

$6 at Amazon

Ready for war: UAG Pathfinder

This mil-spec drop-tested case has a rugged grip, robust corners, and big buttons for those who are rough on their phone or tend to take their phones on intense adventures.

$40 at Amazon

Hybrid hero: Caseology Parallax

Combine the grip and flexibility of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) with the stability and shine of hard plastic, add in a shallow texture on the back and some swanky two-tone colorways, and you've got a winner.

$14 at Amazon

Beautiful and durable: Miracase Marble Full Body

Who said pretty cases have to delicate? Miracase brings a stabilizing front frame to this slim TPU case that's adorned with two-tone marble and glimmering rose gold accents.

$17 at Amazon

For a cruel, cruel world: ArmadilloTek Vanguard Series

Our phones are our lifelines, and the robust drop protection and dust plugs on these cases can help your S20+ survive what life throws at it. It also a kickstand that works well in portrait or landscape mode.

$19 at Amazon

Clean and clear: Spigen Liquid Crystal

This clear case comes in two flavors and I love them both: the classic clear Liquid Crystal is grippy and great, but the Glitter variant hides smudges and adds just the right amount of glam.

$10 at Amazon

Full-grain luxury feel: Snakehive Vintage Wallet

When it comes to wallet folios, even Samsung and Bellroy don't feel as good in the hand as Snakehive. This European full-grain nubuck leather wallet case comes in over a half-dozen colors, and you can get initials embossed on the front corner.

$38 at Snakehive

Like nothing's there: Totallee Thin Case

Totallee's thin cases are unbranded, ultra-light, and ultra-thin. If you hate cases because they're bulky, Totallee is made for you. This one is available in a rigid black or softer clear case.

$35 at Totallee

Clear corner guard: MoKo Crystal Clear

MoKo knows you want to show off the beauty of your new S20+'s gorgeous glass back, but it also offers robust corner guards that should help keep that glass from shattering in a drop.

$9 at Amazon

Rugged showoff: Supcase UB Style

Supcase's Unicorn Beetle Style offers a crystal clear backplate while two-tone TPU hugs the sides of your phone and keeps it safe. It's available only in black for now, but expect more colors to be available soon.

$13 at Amazon

Covert card carrier: Olixar X-Ranger

If a thick folio wallet isn't your style, go slimmer and super-spy with the X-Ranger. When the bottom kickstand isn't deployed, it just looks like a heavy-duty case, but it also has space for a couple of cards inside.

$20 at Amazon

Almost invisible: Ringke Air

Let this thin TPU case cling to your Galaxy S20+ and all of its curves so that you can grip your new phone with confidence. Don't expect much shock absorption, but it'll give your new phone scratch protection at least.

$8 at Amazon

Keep it simple: Avalri Ultra Thin

If you don't care about having big bulky tanks to hide your S20+ in, Avalri can give you simple sophistication and scratch protection in one of five bold colors like pink, blue, and silver.

$9 at Amazon

Carry it all: Caseme Magnetic Leather Wallet

This wallet folio comes in five colors, including a subdued Wine Red and teal-ish Blue. There are two dedicated card slots and then a bigger slot for spare cash and receipts.

$13 at Amazon

Protect your Plus

While I admit that heavy-duty cases can make the most sophisticatedly designed phones feel clunky, that's no reason to walk around with a naked phone. It's just plain indecent — and it invites Murphy's Law! If you want some slim protection, grab the Spigen Liquid Air or the KuGi Anti-Scratch TPU Case so that your S20+ has at least a little protection from scuffs, scratches, and slips.

If you want some more robust protection, I've been a fan of the ArmadilloTek Vanguard Series for a couple of years now. The fold-flat kickstand doubles as a tentative phone grip while weaving through a crowd, and despite the case's beefier back, it still supports wireless charging so you can keep those dust flaps securely covering your USB-C port and keeping out lint and sand.

There are great cases out there for all of the S20 models, and we've also rounded up our favorite Galaxy S20 Cases and Galaxy S20 Ultra Cases to help you get more ideas for the perfect case for your perfect new phone.
