Protect your Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 with these great cases

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is a foldable phone with many promises. 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 provides a couple of options with that extra bit of protection. The Tough Armor's version should still sit flat on a desk in tablet mode. It also 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.

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.

Affordable luxury

DEMCERT PU Leather Case for Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G

There's no denying that the Samsung Leather Flip Stand Cover is a beauty, but it's mighty expensive. If you want the look and feel of leather without breaking the bank, this affordable DEMCERT case is a solid option. It's made of high-quality PU leather and has a dedicated pen slot.

$30 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

Thin but tough

Spigen Slim Armor Pro for Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G

Unwanted bulk is one of the main issues when choosing the best Galaxy Z Fold 3 case. Fortunately, you can get thin but tough protection with the Spigen Slim Armor Pro case. The Air Cushion Technology is designed to offer maximum protection that you can rely on.

$80 at Amazon

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 textured pattern across the back for extra grip and non-slip pads to keep it from sliding when lying flat.

$40 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.

$31 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 pleather designs.

$10 at Amazon (Blue Carbon) $10 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.

Finding the best Galaxy Z Fold 3 case can be hard

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, mainly 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 may not see much in the way of Galaxy Z Fold 3 cases 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.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Follow these steps to connect a Pro Controller to your Android phone

Playing games on your smartphone is one of the best ways to entertain yourself. However, it can be tough to play with some games when you're just tapping on a screen. Fortunately, it's possible to sync up a traditional controller. That's where it's nice to connect your Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and get playing on the best gaming phones . By the way, the Playstation 4 controller as well as the Xbox One controller are also compatible with Android devices, if you'd prefer to use one of those. Note: You will only be able to use a Pro Controller if your phone is running Android 10 and if the game you're playing supports controllers. Additionally, the process for syncing the controller with your phone will be different from one phone to the next.

Duke Nukem is getting a movie from some guys who could actually pull it off

The one true Duke. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have no idea who Duke Nukem even is — that’s how hard the classic video game franchise cratered a decade ago. Today, the character is mostly known as a punchline for video game vaporware jokes, about how Duke Nukem Forever spent 14 years in development hell only to become a huge flop. And yet for years now, Duke’s corporate owners have been whispering that a movie is coming, culminating in The Hollywood Reporter ’s story today : Legendary Entertainment has tapped Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to actually produce a feature film. I don’t quite know how to react! As a gamer who actually quite liked Duke Nukem , Duke Nukem II and Duke Nukem 3D, I absolutely agree that this movie should never be made because Duke Nukem has no depth and no story and was always designed to be a caricature .
