Protect your Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 with these great cases

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is a foldable phone with a lot of promise. S Pen support makes it a natural choice for creators on the go who want to sketch out ideas wherever the muse strikes them. The improved durability and water resistance mean that you don't quite have to baby the Fold 3 the way you did the Fold 2 (just don't take it to the beach or the desert). Of course, you can bolster that protection with a great case, and these are the best Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 cases we've been able to find so far.

Protect everything

Spigen Tough Armor Designed for Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G

Staff Pick

Most Galaxy Z Fold 3 cases leave the phone's hinge totally exposed, but Spigen has a couple with that extra bit of protection. The Tough Armor's version should still sit flat on a desk in tablet mode (unlike the Slim Armor Pro), and it offers a nice lip around the outer screen and the camera.

Get the Note experience

Samsung S Pen Folio Cover

While the Galaxy Z Fold 3 supports the S Pen, it doesn't have a slot for one like the Notes of yesteryear. That's okay, though, because you can buy both the S Pen and a Folio case to store it in one easy bundle. This case can feel a bit bulky to some, but for S Pen addicts, this is the case for you.

Heavy duty, slim profile

UAG Civilian

UAG's Civilian line brings more robust drop protection and grip to your Galaxy Z Fold 3 without getting as bulky as the multi-layer cases by Spigen and others. The Mallard Blue is quite nice, but the Olive Green will mesh marvelously with the Phantom Green Z Fold 3.

Get colorful

GooseBox Ultra Thin

While most cases for the Z Fold 3 focus on kickstands or heavy-duty protection, GooseBox instead focuses on a minimal design and a barely-there feel in hand. You can choose between matte, shiny, or even electroplated clear cases to perfectly match your colorway — or replace it with something more fun.

Unconventional kickstand

Spigen Neo Hybrid S Designed for Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G

This heavy-duty case offers high impact protection while also being uniquely functional. The back panel can rotate out to become a wide, sturdy kickstand for when you're working in tablet mode. However, because it consists of the entire back panel, the case will still sit flat on a table. It also means the lip around the camera is nice and deep.

$60 at Amazon

A refined grip

Samsung Leather Flip Stand Cover

While the Galaxy Z Flip 3 got a couple of different grip styles integrated into its first-party cases, Samsung only brought a phone strap to one of the first-party Z Fold 3 cases. The strap also pulls double duty as a kickstand when you have the phone in tablet mode.

$90 at Samsung $90 at Amazon

Clean and clear

Spigen Ultra Hybrid

There are precious few clear cases available for the Z Fold 3 right now, but that's okay because Spigen's got the only one you need. Now, I know this case looks green, but that's just the refraction of the Phantom Green through the polycarbonate; it is a clear case.

$40 at Amazon $60 at Best Buy

Safe and secure

Incipio Grip

The Galaxy Z Fold 3 can be a bit difficult to grip properly at times, but Incipio is back with its Grip series to help you hold on to your folding phone, whether it's closed, open, or in between. It also comes in black and a very bold red, but I like this two-tone Navy Blue colorway best.

$70 at Incipio

Sleek kickstand

VRS Design QuickStand Pro

This dual-layer case has a built-in kickstand, but it's not as wide or cumbersome as the Spigen Neo Hybrid S. Available in three colors, this case has a good pattern across the back for extra grip and non-slip pads to keep it from sliding around a table when lying flat.

$43 at Amazon

Better fit and finish

Araree Bonnet

This more minimalistic take on a folio eschews flimsy front clip-on cases for the outer screen, instead giving you a clean-looking cover screen while still offering protection from the folio and the TPU-covered bottom half of the Z Fold 3.

$32 at Amazon

Colorful carbon fiber

ZYKY Carbon Fiber Cover

If leather isn't your preferred look, this snap-on case instead takes notes from one of the most icon case styles of the last decade: carbon fiber. I'm partial to the blue or red, but we also have the classic black carbon fiber and some pleather designs.

From $15 at Amazon $13 at Amazon (Black Carbon

Pick your finish

Ringke Slim Case

Ringke's hard-shell case comes in black, a reflective clear, and a matte clear. The matte finish, in particular, is quite alluring because it should hopefully be a little better about hiding fingerprints and scuffs. Like most Ringke cases, this has an anchor point for a lanyard, strap, or phone charm.

Why great Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 cases are harder to find right now

There's a bevy of fun cases from Samsung and Spigen for the Galaxy Z Fold 3, with the S Pen Folio sitting pretty at the top of the pack. I like the S Pen, but I'm not sure how long I'll be able to tolerate the extra girth here — at least it's not as awkward as the S21 Ultra version. The Spigen Tough Armor and Neo Hybris S cases are also quite interesting, especially how the hardback panel rotates out into the kickstand while the inner layer keeps the Z Fold 3 secure. It adds a fair amount of bulk, but heavy-duty cases are popular for a reason: they protect your investment.

Despite how blatantly awesome the Galaxy Z Fold 3 looks, you can't deny this is an expensive phone that's still trying to break out of a niche enthusiast segment and into the mainstream. As such, many case manufacturers are waiting to see how the Z Fold 3 — and the Z Flip 3 — sell before deciding how many cases they'll offer. This means that outside some early cases from bigger companies like Spigen, Incipio, and Samsung, of course, you might not see much in the way of cases for the Z Fold 3 for a while longer.

Don't worry, though! We know that case makers come around on these phones pretty quickly. Its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Fold 2, has good case selection now, as does the Z Flip series. It just means if you're not too keen on what's available today, you can grab an affordable case for now and wait for your dream case to arrive.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
