Dropping the Note 20 Ultra would be a disaster. Protect it with a case!

The best cases for the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra need to balance protection and profile, style and substance — and do it all without breaking the bank. The Note 20 Ultra is one of the most cutting-edge phones on the market, but it's also one of the largest and heaviest phones released in 2020. Combine that with the luxury price tag Samsung demands, and you have a recipe for disaster if you dare take your new phone out into the world naked. Skip the public smartphone indecency and get yourself a great case. Here are the best Galaxy Note 20 Ultra cases to keep it like new for years to come.

Slim and sublime

Ringke Air-S

Staff Pick

If you don't want to bulk up your Note 20 Ultra but need to add some grip, the Air-S is a minimalist case that will give your fingers more purchase than expected while guarding against scratches.

$9 at Amazon

Rough and tumble

ArmadilloTek Vanguard Series Case

I have loved the Vanguard Series for the last couple of generations of Galaxy phones because the color options go beyond the boring black and blue, and the sturdy kickstand works in portrait mode and landscape.

From $21 at Amazon

Colorful coolness

Caseology Parallax for Samsung Galaxy S20 FE

The Note 20 Ultra isn't getting that lovely Mystic Green color, but you can at least get a bit of that earthy glow with the Aqua Green version of the Parallax, or navy blue or burgundy if you prefer.

Light-duty durability

OtterBox Symmetry Series Case

OtterBox is better known for the ridiculously durable Defender Series. Still, I'm partial to the Symmetry because it's thinner, easier to get on and off the phone, and it usually comes in more attractive colors like this Cake Pop Pink.

$24 at Amazon $28 at Best Buy $45 at Target

Clearly rugged

i-Blason Ares

Named for the god of war, this two-stage clear case keeps the Note 20 Ultra safe while showing off that Samsung styling. The color options for the bumper and accents here are quite fetching, with Red and Purple in addition to the basic black.

From $14 at Amazon $22 at Walmart

Subdued and suave

Samsung Leather Cover

Samsung's first-party leather case remains the leather case to beat for yet another generation. Still, this year's color options are more earthy and sophisticated than previous years, with black, brown, and green color choices.

From $28 at Amazon $28 at Best Buy

Grippy and good

Spigen Liquid Air Armor Designed for Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

While Spigen's Rugged Armor might be the more popular, the Liquid Air is so much more appealing, both in hand with its deeper texturing and visually with that uniform look.

$13 at Amazon $25 at Walmart

Carry it all

Snakehive Vintage Wallet

This functional and fashionable folio allows you to ditch the wallet and carry all your essentials together. I adore UK-based Snakehive's suede-like full-grain leather, especially when it comes in fun colors like teal, bottle green, and plum.

$39 at Amazon

Drop protection

UAG Civilian

Urban Armor Gear is long-known for its military-grade cases, and the Civilian keeps you covered while also sporting an understated look in either an Olive Green for those who wish the Ultra came in Mystic Green or my preferred Mallard Blue.

From $50 at Amazon $50 at Best Buy

Lets kick it

ESR Kickstand

Being able to prop up the Note 20 Ultra while you're out and about is a wonderful addition, especially when you get it without being saddled with some huge bulky tank. It also adds an excellent grip.

$15 at Amazon

Sturdy grip

Speck Presidio2 Grip

The best way to protect your Note 20 Ultra is never to let it slip out of your hands in the first place. Speck upgraded the Presidio case line for the Note 20 Ultra, which should last longer, grip easier, and feel better in hand.

$18 at Amazon $16 at Best Buy

Vibrant scratch-guard

Anccer Colorful Series Case

If you're determined to avoid adding any thickness to your Note 20 Ultra while guarding the glass back from scratches and slips, Anccer's Colorful Series can let you trade the bronze or black for bold blue, green, or red.

$11 at Amazon

Show it off

Ringke Fusion

While the Fusion-X offers a bit more robust protection, its much more aggressive look can put off many users. However, the Fusion offers most of the same protection without betraying the look of the phone.

$10 at Amazon $10 at Walmart

Feel the fabric

SQMCase Denim Patchwork

Fabric cases are fewer and further between these days, but this case features a flexible bumper around the sides, and a two-tone textile feel around the back that simulates denim as well as leather.

$7 at Amazon

Covert card carrier

Spigen Slim Armor CS Case

Goodness knows the back of the Note 20 Ultra is certainly big enough to hold a few cards, and this understated case from Spigen lets you carry them without being as obvious as other folio cases.

From $17 at Amazon $40 at Best Buy

Shiny and sturdy

Ghostek Atomic

If you prefer your clear cases a little more robust and rugged, the Ghostek Atomic's multi-layer bumper should help it survive 12-foot drops. I also like the bold metallic accents around the edges.

$40 at Amazon $40 at Walmart

Minimal majesty

Samsung Silicone Cover

Samsung's silicone cases are always perfectly color-matched to the Note models, and this year is no exception, offering white, black, and "brown," which is undoubtedly, unabashedly pink.

From $15 at Amazon $17 at Best Buy

Wallet without bulk

GOOSPERY Card Holder

This unique card-concealing case is thinner than your usual folio fare, and it's not as obviously a wallet case because the entire back folds open like a secret door, and you can combine it with a credit card inside to convert it into a kickstand.

What are the best cases for the Note 20 Ultra?

The Note 20 Ultra is a phone with a good bit of heft to it, so you need two things above all else in a case: you need grip, and you need impact protection. If you still need your case to be slim while guarding your new flagship, the Ringke Air-S offers great grip and some cushioning while hugging the Note 20's every curve and not being as flashy and showboating. It's an understated look for a refined user.

If you need something more rugged to keep it safe, the Ghostek Atomic will let the Mystic Bronze shine through while that shiny bumper conceals the shock-absorbing gel that sits around the corners and the top/bottom edges. I adore the look of the bold red with the bronze, but the Iridescent version could mesh really well with the Mystic White.

Of course, there are a great many cases available in many styles for the Note 20 Ultra, and if you're looking for something a little more specific, we have dedicated roundups for heavy duty cases, leather cases, thin cases, clear cases, and wallet cases for the Note 20 Ultra, to help you narrow down your search more quickly.

England managed to dismiss India for just 78 on Day 1 in a scintillating bowling display, but there was even better to come from the hosts' top-order batting, with all of the top three managing to notch up half-centuries in their first innings. Skipper Root meanwhile continued his extraordinary 2021 form, clocking up yet another three-figure score. With a buoyant home side now hoping to carry on where they left off, India captain Virat Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri must unravel how their attack was so routinely undone with the new ball last time out.

It's a battle of the teens at Flushing Meadows this evening as two youngsters who have stunned the tennis world go head-to-head - read on to find out how to get a 2021 US Open live stream and watch Emma Raducanu vs Leylah Fernandez online no matter where you are in the world. The last time the final at the Arthur Ashe Stadium was contested by two players yet to reach their 20s was when Serena Williams defeated Martina Hingis to take the title back in 1999 in a match that signalled a new era for the women's game. While both players in that match were something of a known quantity - Hingis was already world no.1 - both of today's finalists' trailblazing journeys to today's clash has come as something of a bolt out of the blue. Britain's Emma Raducanu had to go through the qualifying stage on her incredible route to this showdown, yet has yet to lose a set so far in the tournament.
