These are the best Samsung Galaxy S21+ cases you can buy

We've rounded up the best Samsung Galaxy S21+ cases that we could find because we know how important it is to keep your prized and expensive new smartphone safe and protected for its entire lifetime. Some of these cases offer maximum protection, while others showcase that incredible Samsung style. Consider the form factor, color, and thickness that works best for you when looking for a case from this list.

Exclusive to the Plus

Samsung Kvadrat Cover

Staff Pick

Samsung has been on a sustainability kick in 2021, and this lovely textured case is part of that initiative. Made entirely out of recycled PET bottles, the case not only keeps new materials out of the product stream, but it can be composted as well! The texture makes it easy and comfortable to hold while still providing protection. You can pick one up in violet or a stunning silvery gray.

A pleasure to hold

Caseology Parallax Case

It's not often that you find one of the best-looking, most-protective cases by a major brand at this price point, but that's exactly what you get with the Caseology Parallax. Available in Ash Gray, Indi Pink, Matte Black, and Purple-ish, this case blends in seamlessly with your S21+. The back's textured pattern is visually appealing with a sturdy grip and military-grade drop protection.

Colorful grip

Ringke Air-S Case

Ringke's better known for its clear cases, but I've adored the Air-S series since it came out a little over a year ago. While most TPU cases are boring black, Ringke brings understated color and fit while keeping things compact. You'll notice a small notch on the side of this case, allowing you to hook on a wrist strap, lanyard, or phone charm.

Military-grade protection

UAG Pathfinder

Urban Armor Gear is one of the oldest and most trusted heavy-duty case brands on the market, and the Pathfinder is a big reason why. It's MIL-STD 810G-tested to withstand over 20 4-foot drops, and the honeycomb-patterned case still keeps its size manageable.

Galaxy glitter

Spigen Liquid Crystal Glitter

Spigen makes cases that are simple, practical, and occasionally stylish too! That's certainly the case here with the Liquid Crystal Glitter. The case itself is mostly transparent, which allows you to see the beautiful back of your S21+ device, and the glittery pattern adds a touch of flair while disguising any minor scratches or smudges. Plus, it's lightweight and very slim.

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

Premium feeling protection

Poetic Spartan Series

Poetic's Spartan is like the leather-accented UAG Monarch, and the bold kickstand-packing ArmadilloTek Vanguard Series had a brightly colored baby. I'm in love with the bold colors offered here, and unlike most heavy-duty cases, Poetic kept the built-in screen protector!

From $25 at Amazon

Thinnest available

Totallee Ultra Thin for Galaxy S21+

If the idea of bulking up your already quite large S21+ sounds absolutely abhorrent, Totallee has the case you need. This 0.02-inch case added grip and scratch protection without any excess material or branding. Just remember it won't have much drop protection because there's only so much impact absorption possible with this little material.

$10 at Amazon

Can't mist case

Speck Presidio Perfect Mist Case

Speck cases always fit just right and offer great protection in a slim package. The Presidio Perfect Mist has a soft-touch matte finish that lets you see just a bit of the beautiful phone beneath while protecting it from drops of up to 13 feet. You are also protected from germs with its built-in Microban technology.

$40 at Amazon

Built like a tank

ArmadilloTek Vanguard Case

ArmadilloTek can always be counted among the first rugged cases to market for a new Galaxy phone, including the S21+. Not only will your Samsung be safely ensconced in a case that doubles standard military drop-test standards while still allowing wireless charging and protecting your USB-C port with a dust flap.

From $19 at Amazon

Protect your cameras

Nillkin CamShield Pro Series

While most cases protect your Galaxy S21+s ports, panels, and buttons, the CamShield Pro allows you to safeguard your cameras more securely. When you're not using the cameras, you can slide the shutter over to guard the lenses from whatever filth is in your pocket. It also comes in blue, but the green looks so fetching.

$16 at Amazon

Utility player

Spigen Slim Armor Case

This case gives you all the protection of Spigen's Liquid Air cases that we love, with the bonus of a slim, sliding wallet compartment. Store up to two credit or debit cards, or even some folded up cash, or continue using Samsung or Google Pay at an NFC reader.

$17 at Amazon

Almost invisible

ESR Project Zero Clear Case

ESR's clear case is slim but easily grippable, allowing the color of your Galaxy S21 to shine through while still protecting it from scuffs and scratches. The lip around the screen and camera aren't as high as other cases, but that makes it slimmer in your pocket.

$9 at Amazon

Clearly durable

i-Blason Ares Series

This multi-stage case keeps your S21+ in place with a polycarbonate frame that squeezes into place in the hybrid bumper. Available in three colors, this rugged clear case has a built-in dust flap to keep your USB-C port safe.

From $20 at Amazon 

Carry it all in style

Sheildon Wallet Case

If your phone is as big as the 6.7-inch Galaxy S21+, you might as well merge your wallet with it, especially when you can get it in seven fabulous colors and it sports three card slots plus a cash flap. I'm partial to the Royal Blue, but the green and wine-red shades are also quite eye-catching.

$30 at Amazon

Symmetry perfection

Otterbox Symmetry Case for Galaxy S21+

Otterbox cases may be expensive, but they've proven to us repeatedly that they justify their expense. The Symmetry line is one of our favorite Otterbox cases because it brings that vaunted Otterbox standard of protection to a slimmer and lighter profile. You can grab one in classic Black or spring for something with a bit more personality like Rock Candy Blue or this Shell-Shocked Graphic pink.

What are the best Galaxy S21+ cases?

We think that the Galaxy S21+ might just be the most popular phone in the Galaxy S21 series, and it should compete for a place among the best Android phones on the market this year.

While you pay more for the premium feel of a Samsung case, the Samsung Kvadrat Cover feels so unique in hand. It is made of sustainable materials, meaning it's better for you and better for the environment than another basic plastic slab. If you're looking for the best all-around value, then it's hard to go wrong with this Caseology Parallax clear that offers the perfect balance of style, support, and in-hand comfort for your S21+.

As big and weighty as the Galaxy S21+, I highly recommend going for a durable case that can take a drop or two in style, like the UAG Pathfinder or the ArmadilloTek Vanguard Series, which has the added benefit of a kickstand that works in both landscape for videos and portrait for your Zoom happy hour with the girls.

We will be regularly updating this roundup as more and more cases are release for the Galaxy S21+. Don't forget that we also have roundups of the best Galaxy S21 cases and the best Galaxy S21 Ultra cases, in case you opt for the smaller or larger models. You might also want to look into picking up one of the best Samsung Galaxy S21 screen protectors while you're at it.

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. One positive for Root coming into the game is that they'll be playing in front of a near capacity crowd at Egbaston, with the overwhelming majority of the expected 18,000 spectators set to be cheering on the home side. The tourists have been delivered a huge blow coming intot his final match, with s

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. Jump to: iPad widgets and app drawer Live Text Apple Maps AR navigation iOS notifications New Siri capabilities Apple Photos Bonus: What Google needs to steal iPad widgets and app drawer iPad OS 15 introduced two big new updates for the iPad home screen today: widgets and the App Library.

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
