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.

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.

$56 at Incipio

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.

$26 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 $42 at Best Buy

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.

$24 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.

$6 at Amazon (Blue Carbon) $8 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.

Protect your kids by setting up a supervised YouTube account

YouTube Kids has been around since 2015 and has grown into a great place for children to explore what YouTube has to offer safely. In 2021, the company is expanding ways for younger viewers to see more of what's available from the streaming service, along with a more mature interface with supervised accounts. Instead of a separate app, these accounts will use the official YouTube app, so knowing how to set up a supervised account for kids on Youtube is important. If you want to protect your child from some of the less than appropriate content that can be seen on YouTube, then you'll want to be sure to have the supervised account properly set up. YouTube announced supervised accounts as a way for kids aged 9+ to see to more of what the service offers while still under the guidelines set by their parent. So, whether you have picked up one of the best phones for kids or maybe a tablet like the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 HD that has Google's Kids Space for your child, here&#

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review: Better phone, worse price

This upgrade is an uphill battle for Samsung thanks to steep competition. It's hard to believe that it's been a year and a half since Samsung redefined the "flagship killer" concept with the Galaxy S20 FE . At the time, the phone blew us away with its quality, delivering a true flagship experience for a significantly lower price than a "regular" Galaxy S20. The Galaxy S21 FE was rumored to be released the entire second half of 2021, and now it's finally here. The Galaxy S21 FE debuts with some of the expected upgrades over its predecessor but still retains many of the points that made the S20 FE a more affordable device. You won't find a brand new camera array on this phone when compared to 2020's device — that's a 12MP sensor for the main and ultra-wide lenses, while an 8MP sensor still resides behind the 3X telephoto lens — but Samsung has upgraded the styling to be more in line with the Galaxy S21 and the rumored look of the Galaxy

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people. It doesn't help that stock levels remain really tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we here at Android Central have seen PS5s stay in stock is between 15 to 20 minutes (often just a few minutes, though). That's also at random times, so finding a PS5 is a truly challenging task. Sony warned it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers promise more are coming and that Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called the system a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. And after spending a few months with the PS5, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive
