There's no denying that Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is one of the most futuristic-looking and feature-packed smartphones you can currently buy, even taking the newly launched Z Flip 4 into consideration. But it's also one of the most delicate smartphones out there, primarily because of its foldable form factor.
So, if you'd like to keep your foldable clean and whole, we suggest getting one of these best Galaxy Z Flip 3 cases to go with as well. From Samsung's own offerings, to rugged options by third-party manufacturers such as Spigen, we've selected the finest options for you.

Available in numerous color options, this official Samsung Silicone Cover with Ring for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 protects both halves of the foldable, while also connecting them via a durable woven strap. At the end of its loop is a silver flat-edged ring that doubles up as a phone holder. The case also supports wireless charging.
Friendly to trees
CASETiFY's impact resistant bumper cases come in virtually hundreds of designs, some of which are products of brand partnerships with franchises like Toy Story and Star Wars. We were very pleased with the eco-friendly materials, build quality, and clicky buttons of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 case in our hands-on testing.
Rugged military-grade design
While UAG's offering is a bit thicker than most Galaxy Z Flip 3 cases, that added thickness — combined with the "HyperCush" technology — provides military-grade drop protection to your folding smartphone. The Civilian series comes with oversized tactile buttons for better response, and is available in colors like Mallard and Olive.
Comes with built-in kickstand
Although the QuickStand Active from VRS is a tad bulky, it's also among the more rugged Galaxy Z Flip 3 cases you can get. You get all-round protection (including the hinge) in a well-designed tough shell, while the integrated kickstand offers a convenient way of propping up the phone in both portrait and landscape orientations.
The Speck Presidio Perfect Glitter Case is the only case that's compatible with the Z Flip 3 and the Z Flip 4, making it an extremely rare find that won't go to waste even if you upgrade. It has undergone the antimicrobial treatment and the hinge mechanism is fantastic, as we've seen for ourselves in real life.
Official accessory from Samsung
As far as official cases go, you can't get anything better for your Z Flip 3 than this one. Made from silicone, Samsung's protective cover features an integrated strap that not only looks cool, but also keeps the phone securely in your hand. The outer silicone layer also comes with a matte finish that does a great job of keeping away smudges and fingerprints.
For the minimalist
If you're one of those people who are extra careful with their gadgets and just want a minimal case, look no further than this slim-fit shell from Cresee. Made from polycarbonate, this thing is so thin that you won't even notice it's there. The case comes with a soft matte finish, and is available in colors such as black, blue, pink, and red.
Tried and tested protection
The Tough Armor has long been among Spigen's most popular lineups of cases, thanks to being both affordable and durable. With its unique sliding hinge design and raised edges around the screen and the camera array, the case can protect your Z Flip 3 even from the harshest of impacts. It's made from TPU and polycarbonate.
Slim yet tough
We've always been fans of Ringke's protective cases, and this one is no exception. Made from polycarbonate, the case sports a premium two-piece construction that shields your Galaxy Z Flip 3 from drops and impacts with ease. Being just 1.1 mm in thickness, it barely adds any bulk to the device and like most of Ringke's other offerings, there's an integrated lanyard hole as well.
Thin and lightweight
Spigen's ultra-slim AirSkin case doesn't detract from the Z Flip 3's beautiful design, while also providing reliable protection against scuffs and scratches. It's manufactured using TPU and polycarbonate, and comes with a special coating that prevents discoloration. In addition to the clear shell, there's an all-black matte color available too.
Clip it on
The Beltron Case with Clip for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 comes with a useful belt holster to attach your foldable phone to your jeans. Making things more fun, the belt clip doubles as a kickstand. Available in five colorways, this is a multifunctional case for your Z Flip 3.
Affordable and stylish
If you don't care one bit about real leather and would rather have something that imitates its look quite well, Foluu's offering might just interest you. It's made from a combo of synthetic PU leather and hard polycarbonate, giving the Galaxy Z Flip 3 solid protection while also adding a dash of style. The leather overlay on the back panel is available in three colors: black, brown, and yellow.
These Galaxy Z Flip 3 cases combine function and fashion
One of the best foldable phones available in the market, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 offers a plethora of powerhouse features in a compact shell. However, the foldable needs to be protected well in order to maintain its good looks, which is why getting a well-built case makes perfect sense.
Our top pick — Samsung's own silicone cover with ring — protects the swanky foldable from damage, while also enhancing its style. You also get a bunch of colors to choose from, and the integrated ring helps with the grip by serving as a handy phone strap when needed. If you'd rather have an actual strap anyways, we suggest Samsung's other cover instead.
CASETiFY is your go-to option if you're looking for trendy cases with decent impact resistance. We have reviewed the brand's eco-friendly cases and they hold up really well in day-to-day usage. You don't need to sacrifice safety or style because CASETiFY's Z Flip 3 cases have it all. What really stands out are the brand's collaborative designs and special edition cases. Check out the full CASETiFY Galaxy Z Flip 3 case collection to find your fandom of choice.
If you'd prefer something a bit more rugged, take a gander at the QuickStand Active by VRS Design. It offers military-grade drop protection and even features a built-in kickstand that works in both orientations. VRS Design offers some neat color variations as well as different finishes.
Once you've decided on a case, make sure you pair it up with one of the best Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 screen protectors (opens in new tab) to ensure that folding screen stays safe as well.
