Best Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra cases 2022

The Galaxy S21 Ultra is one of the biggest and most powerful Galaxy phones ever. It's also the first to work with the S Pen, which has been traditionally reserved for the Note line. Given its size and heft, you need to protect your investment with a sturdy case that adds both grip and style. Here are our top picks for the best Galaxy S21 Ultra cases, whether you're after a clear case to show off the Ultra's design or a durable tank-like enclosure to keep it safe and secure.

The best Galaxy S21 Ultra cases

What makes the best cases for the Galaxy 21 Ultra?

There's usually a half-dozen factors to consider and juggle when choosing a case. Still, durability and grip must be top of the list for a phone as physically large and heavy as the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Heavy-duty cases for the Galaxy S21 Ultra are bound to draw a lot of attention for higher drop-testing and extra functionality such as the kickstand on the ArmadilloTek Vanguard Series, which is durable and dependable while injecting some color. If you want protection without getting a bulky case, check out the Caseology Nano Pop, which builds air cushions into both the bumper and the back cover while also offering up dynamic two-tone colorways and a slim profile.

If you prefer thin Galaxy S21 Ultra cases or clear cases, the Anccer Ultra Thin and the ESR Clear Case both offer increased grip and scratch protection while keeping your Galaxy S21 Ultra as svelte as possible. Still, there's also a relatively slim case option for S-Pen users in the Spigen Liquid Air P. Android Central's Hayato Husemen has used it for a while and relies on it more than Samsung's S-Pen case because it doesn't attract dirt or fingerprints. And buying the Liquid Air P and S-Pen separately will still save you money compared to the Samsung S-Pen Silicone Case bundle.

While you're buying your new phone a case, though, don't neglect the screen, because if your front glass shatters, all you're left with is an expensive paperweight. The Best Galaxy S21 Ultra Screen Protectors will ensure that your touchscreen remains pristine and perfect for years to come.
