These are the best cases you can get for your Galaxy S21 Ultra

The Galaxy S21 Ultra is one of the biggest and most powerful Galaxys ever, as well as being the first to work with the S Pen, traditionally reserved for the Note line. Given its size and heft, you need to protect your investment with a secure case that adds grip and style. The best Galaxy S21 Ultra cases are right here, whether you're after a clear case to show off the Ultra's design or a durable tank to keep it safe and secure.

Colorful and durable

Caseology Nano Pop

Staff Pick

After two years of the Nano Pop being exclusive to iPhones, it's finally coming to Samsung phones with the S21 series. The Blueberry Navy with its yellow accents is striking and classic, and the impact-absorbing pattern embedded in the back gives you slim protection. I wish the Ultra has gotten the Violet the smaller S21s have, but the colors here are still fun.

Ready to work hard

ArmadilloTek Vanguard Series for S21 Ultra

The S21 Ultra is made for productivity, so it should come as no surprise that one of my favorite S21 Ultra cases features a nice, sturdy kickstand that works in portrait mode so you can prop it up next to your computer or while doomscrolling at the dinner table. The launch colors are nice, too, with the Purple and Red version looking especially fetching.

Best case for S-Pen

Spigen Liquid Air P

The Spigen Liquid Air Armor series has been one of its most popular since it arrived two years ago. The S21 Ultra gets another upgrade as one of the only third-party cases with a slot for the S-Pen. It also has a better grip, doesn't get dirty as quickly, and is way more affordable, but remember, you'll have to buy the S-Pen separately.

Look at those accents!

Samsung Leather Cover

Samsung's Leather Cover is usually one of the best leather cases for a Samsung phone period. Still, the Ultra gets some extra pomp and circumstance with the S21 Ultra in the form of braided texturing on the camera module. It's like the Carbon fiber on the custom Ultra, only it actually looks good!

Thin but rugged

Ringke Onyx Series

Ringke is one of the best case makers for giving you durability in a compact profile, and the Onyx series comes in two flavors. The regular Onyx comes in Black, Navy, and Gray, and the Onyx Design has some fun little quips and tech-y easter eggs in its three designs, which are all on the Black. I wish the Graffiti came with Navy, though.

Sturdy and strong

OtterBox Symmetry Series for S21 Ultra

OtterBox may be best known for its tank-like Defender Series, but I'm more fond of the Symmetry Series with its brighter colors and sleeker shapes. I mean, look at this turquoise! Samsung was too scared to give us something this bold, but at least OtterBox has the guts for it. This year's model is also made with 60% recycled materials, so it's more sustainable.

Show it off

ESR Clear Case

ESR's clear cases are slim as can be, allowing you to see every millimeter of Samsung's design while guarding it against scratches and adding some much-needed grip to this extra-large phone. It adds the slimmest of margins while giving you peace of mind. ESR also has bundles so that you can snag some screen protectors alongside the clear case.

Carry everything together

Foluu Wallet

Folio cases let us guard that big, bright, beautiful screen while also adding extra functionality with wallet flaps to hold cards and cash. This wallet folio has small magnetic clasps on the side, keeping it closed but not getting in the way when open. This wallet only has two card slots, but the cash flap is deep. Remember: your S21 Ultra has Google Pay and Samsung Pay!

Grooves and grime-fighting

Speck Presidio2 Grip

With its iconic and expertly grippy grooved pattern across the back, Speck's most popular case series is alive and well with the S21 Ultra. Rated to withstand 13-foot drops thanks to Armor Cloud air cushioning, Speck has also added Microban protection against odor and stain-causing germs, so your case looks just as great two years from now.

Better than clear

Spigen Liquid Crystal Series

The Spigen Liquid Crystal comes in a few flavors this year, but if you're secure enough in your style, I highly recommend grabbing the Glitter version for two reasons: Firstly, the glitter hides smudges and scuffs, so it's more functional. Secondly, glitter adds more personality and depth to the look.

$13 at Amazon (Glitter) $12 at Amazon (Clear)

Two accessories in one

Samsung Silicone Cover with S-Pen

If you're going for broke with your S21 Ultra case, you might as well get something extra and extra-useful with yours. This case comes with the S-Pen, turning your S21 Ultra into a Galaxy Note in most ways. Sadly, it only comes in black, and the silicone case here attracts dust and smudges.

$65 at Amazon

Shockproof and secure

Tech21 Evo Check

Tech21's cases are all impeccably designed to keep your phone secure while still showing it off, with the Evo Check being drop-tested up to 12 feet while still showing off the S21 Ultra's branding. There's also antimicrobial protection embedded in the silicone.

$30 at Amazon

Candy colored shells

Anccer Ultra Thin

If you don't want to bulk up your Galaxy S21 Ultra any more than necessary, Anccer's thin, hard-shell will give you some added grip and scratch protection without making this super-sized phone any harder to fit in your pocket.

From $8 at Amazon

Best bumper

Incipio Grip

This case may not seem all that rugged, but it's got impact struts to help it survive 14-foot drops. It's also got an impressively textured bumper to help you keep your S21 Ultra in your hand instead of letting it slip through your sweaty fingers.

$40 at Amazon (Midnight Blue)

Grip and glamour

Caseology Parallax for Galaxy S21 Ultra

The shallow and mesmerizing texture on the Parallax allows you to get a good grip bare-handed while still playing nice with PopSockets and other stick-on accessories if you need to use one with the Ultra (I know my small hands need it). You can get a Purple-ish or Pink that mimics the smaller S21.

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, but for a phone as physically large and heavy as the Galaxy S21 Ultra, durability and grip must be top of the list. 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, but there's also a relatively slim case option for S-Pen users in the Spigen Liquid Air P. Our own Hayato Husemen has been using it for a while and uses it more than Samsung's own S-Pen case because it doesn't attract dirt or fingerprints and it feels grippier in hand. 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.

How to watch England vs New Zealand: Live stream 2nd Test series cricket on

With the first Test ending in a draw, the series is on a knife edge at Edgbaston, as Joe Root's side look to put off the field controversies to one side and claim a much needed win against the Kiwis. Don't miss a single ball of the 2nd Test with our England vs New Zealand live stream guide below. The series has been somewhat overshadowed by the emergence of offensive historic tweets posted by Ollie Robinson who made his debut in the opening Test but has since been suspended. With the controversy still brewing amid interventions from politicians and accusations leveled at other members of the team, Root has a battle on his hands to keep his side focused on the game ahead.

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.

The Galaxy Watch 4 is coming soon — here's everything you need to know

Samsung's Galaxy-brain play: leaving Tizen behind for Wear OS. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, one of the best Android smartwatches , may have only just launched in November 2020, but the latest rumors out of South Korea suggest the company may already be developing its replacement — with some big changes and upgrades in the works meant to topple Apple from its smartwatch throne. There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity. It could also feature a newer-faster chipset, which could put it leagues ahead of the best Wear OS watches . Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4.

Every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart

Armor up Ratchet and Rivet before taking down their enemies. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart features several armor sets that both Ratchet and Rivet can wear throughout the game, giving them damage buffs and other benefits. Each armor set is comprised of three pieces; the helmet, chest, and boots. Without all three pieces of a complete set, you won't get their collection bonus buffs. Thankfully, each map tells you exactly where to find the armor you need. It's then all about exploring the area and picking it up. You'll find most pieces within optional dimensional rifts that feature platforming puzzles of some kind, and there are eight total sets to be found. Here's every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and the buffs that they offer: Galactic Ranger Description: The classic helmet of the Solana Galactic Rangers. The Galactic Rangers' chest armor is forged with justice and Raritarium. The Galactic Rangers' pants protect the galaxy... and your legs
