These are the best cases for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 smartphone

While others may fawn over the Galaxy Z Fold 3, the most alluring foldable of 2021 is the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3. As someone who has worn a shoulder holster for almost five years to accommodate ever-growing phone sizes that refuse to fit in my pants' pockets, this is a phone I can actually fit all the way inside my front pocket. However, nothing will transform your splendid new phone into a splintered nightmare faster than a bad fall because it slipped out of your sweaty palms. So get a grip on the best Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 cases on the market today.

Ring around my heart

Samsung Silicone Cover with Ring

Staff Pick

Available in a wide variety of colors, this case keeps both halves connected via a durable woven strap, and at the end of its loop is a silver flat-edged ring so that you can use it as a ring grip. Given that PopSockets will be almost impossible to place correctly on the Flip, this case gives you a dependable grip as well as an easy way to pull it out of your pocket.

Almost invisible

Spigen Air Skin

This ultra-thin clear case won't detract from your Z Flip 3's beautiful colors while giving you scratch protection and avoiding bulk. I appreciate that the case dips down around the flashlight rather than making it a separate cutout. It helps prevent refractions in flash photos and should keep your whole case from glowing when the flashlight is on.

Ruggedly handsome

UAG Civilian

This case is a teeny bit thicker than most, but that extra depth helps boost the impact protection of the honeycomb pattern inside. Three colors are available: basic black, an Olive Green close to the Galaxy Watch 4's green, and a beautiful Mallard Blue.

Buckle up, kids

Samsung Silicone Cover with Strap

This is one of the most flamboyant Samsung cases I've seen in years, but once you get past the initial confusion of "Why is there a seat belt on my case?" This case is surprisingly functional. Rather than emulating ring grips, this is a strap grip you can get all four fingers inside for a more stable grip. I can't deny the allure of the Navy/Orange colorway, either.

Let's kick it!

VRS Design QuickStand Active

This heavy-duty case will add a bit of thickness to your Z Flip 3, but I swear it's worthwhile. There's a nice sturdy kickstand built into the bottom half of this case, allowing you to prop up the Fold without splitting the screen in two.

Hang on tight

Incipio Grip

This heavy-duty case is available in candy apple red and understated black. This heavy-duty case adds extra grip due to its uniquely bumpy bumper. There are also raised rubbed nibs on the phone's back to help it stay in place while you have it sitting on a desk or table.

Time to think thin

Ringke Slim Case

This polycarbonate case is slightly curved to help it better cling to the smooth sides of the Z Flip 3. It comes in dull black, but I find the matte clear version much more appealing: it shows off the Flip's color without reflecting off everything and showing every drop of oils and smudges.

Can't beat the classics

Spigen Tough Armor Designed for Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G

The Tough Armor has been one of Samsung's most popular cases for almost a decade because it's affordable and durable. However, given the difficulty of designing heavy-duty cases for this form factor, we're glad to see it available for the Z Flip 3.

Rich-feeling

Samsung Leather Cover

It wouldn't be a Samsung flagship without a leather case option. While the color selection here might feel slim compared to the keyring case, I'm very much digging the earth tones here with the goldenrod yellow and deep forest green — which will match nicely with the Green Galaxy Watch 4.

$80 at Samsung From $74 at Amazon $78 at Best Buy

Leathery for less

Foluu PU Leather + PC Shell Case

If Samsung's leather cases are too rich for your blood (especially after spending so much on the phone itself), Foluu has a two-tone pleather case you'll love. This model relies on double-sided adhesive to help the case stay firmly attached to your phone, and the PU leather comes in three colors: black, yellow, and brown.

$10 at Amazon

Beautiful contrast

Kate Spade New York Protective Hardshell

This hard-shell clear case comes alive once you pair it with any of the Fold's colorways. Pastel Hollyhock flowers pop, especially against the Lavender, Green, and Black Galaxy Z Flip 3, and this recycled plastic case is coated in an anti-microbial film.

$56 at Incipio

Wonderful colors

DOOTOO Ultra Thin Hybrid Case

This hybrid case has a slightly more substantial bumper so that the leather or carbon fiber material you choose can come up around the camera and outer screen rather than being limited to the main back panels. There are two shades of green among the six colors, and while the first is more Forest Green, the second is more blue-green like the Z Flip 3, so it matches better.

Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip 3 cases focus on function and fashion

Samsung's first-party cases are the clear winners right now for anyone looking for a great-looking Galaxy Z Flip 3 case, as Samsung has perfectly tailored cases in a nice variety of styles. Thankfully, Samsung focused on more than just fit and fashionable color-matching with these cases, going outside the box for the Silicone Cover with Strap or Ring to improve grip and make the Z Flip 3 a little more fun to have and to hold.

While these cases won't win everyone over, I do still firmly believe that great phone grips are essential to a smartphone experience — especially for one-handed use. You'd typically center a phone grip near the center of the phone, but since the Z Flip 3 folds in half, that's just not as practical here. However, the ring case still puts that grip dead center via the carry strap, and the wider seatbelt-type case allows you to grip securely across the bottom half to dial or type one-handed.

While the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is a more reasonable price than its predecessor — and easier to swallow than the Z Fold 3's final tab — this is still a phone that's not mainstream, or at least not yet. Samsung thinks that the Z Flip 3 will do quite well — you don't make a phone in seven different colors if you're not confident of success — and has offered up a bevy of cases focused around grip, style, and flexibility.

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.

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

You can make your new Pixel look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

A cool thing about Google’s Pixel 6 series phones is their unique camera bar design . If the finish of that strip were a different color than black — specifically blue, orange, purple, or red — it would totally look kind of like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles . And now that you can’t unsee the resemblance, device outfitter Dbrand would like to help make your Pixel 6 device look like one of your favorite childhood heroes. With Google’s latest phone the Pixel 6a releasing next week , Dbrand decided it's a good time to revisit the sewers and launch its Teenage Mutant Ninja Pixels decals for all three phones. They match the green heroes-in-a-half-shell plus their masks, and include four camera decal strips that reflect the colors of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael. Personally, I think the Pixel 6a’s two-camera array does the best job looking like proper eyes (the spidery camera array of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, not so much). Available now for the Pixel 6a: https://

HBO just canceled this comedy, despite its 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating

HBO has canceled animated comedy after three seasons.  Close Enough was created by JG Quintel, the man behind cult comedy Regular Show, who also topped the bill of voice actors, which included Gabrielle Walsh, Jason Mantzoukas, Kimiko Glenn, Jessica DiCicco, James Adomian and Danielle Brooks. Close Enough followed Josh and Emily – and their young daughter Candice – a couple in their late 30s, who live in a Los Angeles duplex with their divorced friends, Alex and Bridgette. The show chronicled their lives as they dealt with everyday challenges, with things frequently taking surreal and sci-fi style turns.  Originally intended to air on TBS in 2017, after a series of delays, the show debuted on HBO Max in 2020. Three seasons of eight episodes each have been broadcast, with the most recent season coming to a close in early April of 2022.  The show has featured a number of high-profile guest stars during its run, including the likes of Jane Lynch, Henry Winkler, "Weird Al"
