These are the Black Friday case deals your Galaxy S20 has been waiting for

While the Galaxy S20 has been out for a while now — it was essentially the last phone to come out in the before times — and whether you're buying one through this year's Black Friday Galaxy deals or you've had it the full 20 months, this is the best time to grab a case for it. Tech21's drop-tested cases are down to "price of a latte" territory, and OtterBox's cases will keep your S20, S20+, S20 Ultra, or even your S20 FE pristine and protected for the rest of their lengthy support life. Here are the case deals you can capture right now.

Tech21 Evo Check (Save up to $35)

From $5 at Amazon

Don't let the Amazon price fool you, the EvoCheck was originally $40, and it was the case my S20 used for the majority of 2020. Available in a smoky black, translucent purple, and a soft opaque blue, you can swap out the buttons for a better look, and it can take drops up to 12 feet. $5 for this is an absolute steal.

Tech21 Studio Colour (Save up to 50%)

$13 at Amazon (S20) From $7 at Amazon (S20+ and Ultra)

This prismatic slim case is made with 31% recycled materials, has a wonderful texture, and won't add any bulk to your S20. There are five shades to the Studio Colour, plus four more Studio Design patterns.

Tech21 Pure Clear (Save up to 45%)

From $6 at Amazon

Tech21's slimmer clear case is anti-microbial, plant-based, and grippy as all get out. Should it somehow slip out of your butterfingers, it's drop-tested to 10 feet.

ArmadilloTek Vanguard Series (Save up to 36%)

From $15 at Amazon (S20) From $15 at Amazon (S20+) From $15 at Amazon (S20 Ultra)

On top of the 20% discount already applied to the Vanguard series, there's an extra 20% off coupon to clip on the page! This rugged case has a solid vertical kickstand and several fun colors, including purple, red, and a Stormtrooper-esque white/black.

OtterBox Commuter Series (Save up to 49%)

From $24 at Amazon (S20) From $20 at Amazon (S20+) From $22 at Amazon (S20 Ultra)

This hybrid case sports a hard plastic shell and a squishy inner sheath to keep your S20 secure and your USB-C port dust and lint-free. While basic black goes with everything, this Mint Way colorway is calming, like a cup of matcha tea.

OtterBox Symmetry Series (Save up to 83%)

From $10 at Amazon (S20) From $9 at Amazon (S20+) From $10 at Amazon (S20 Ultra) $30 at Amazon (S20 FE)

While almost two years on, I still have no clue what OtterBox was thinking with the Rose Gold version of the Symmetry, the cobalt Blue remains striking and awe-inspiring. There are also clear and glitter clear versions, but really, that blue puts all others to shame.

OtterBox Defender Series Screenless Edition (Save up to 75%)

From $21 at Amazon (S20) From $21 at Amazon (S20+) From $15 at Amazon (S20 Ultra) $45 at Amazon (S20 FE)

The iconic OtterBox case, the Defender Series, sports a belt clip and a screenless front frame so that you can install a proper screen protector that's compatible with the S20's ultrasonic under-screen fingerprint sensor.

While OtterBox cases are fine, Tech21 covered my S20 for the vast majority of its life cycle: the Studio Colour was slim, bright, and fun, while the Evo Check and its translucent hues played quite well with my Cloud Blue S20. Speaking of brilliant hues, though, it's hard to go wrong with that blue OtterBox Symmetry. I mean, so bold, so beautiful, plus it's OtterBox, so the case can take one heck of a beating.

Oh, and if you're wondering where all the Galaxy S20 FE case deals are, S20 FE cases are still in higher demand and shorter supply. Most case makers expected the model to be replaced already — both the S21 FE and S22 are delayed — so they're trying to avoid having to produce another run for a model on its way out. If you're taking advantage of Walmart's $250 S20 FE deal, you'll need to use some of those savings on a good case.

Where are other case deals this Black Friday?

A number of manufacturers are also running discounts on their websites this holiday weekend, from site-wide discounts to discount spins that could get you as much as 80% off that new case you're eyeing. Here are the best of those deals:

Spotify Q1 beats on sales of $2B with monthly active users up 31% to 286M

The coronavirus may be decimating some corners of the economy, but the impact on the digital music, as evidenced by the world’s biggest music streaming company, appears to be minimal. Today Spotify reported its earnings for Q1 with revenues of €1.848 billion ($2 billion at today’s rates) and an inching into a positive net income of $1 million. Monthly active users (not total subscribers) now stand at 286 million, with paid (premium) users at 130 million and ad-supported monthly active users at 163 million. Ad-supported users are growing at a slightly higher rate at the moment, at 32% versus 31%, Spotify said. Spotify beat  analysts’ forecasts on both sales — they had on average been expecting revenues of $1.86 billion — and EPS, which had been forecast to be -$0.49 but came in at -$0.20 on a diluted basis and $0.00 undiluted. The numbers underscore the positive signals we’ve had from the wider industry. More generally, we have seen a huge boost in streaming media services — includ

Adobe is giving students and teachers free access to Creative Cloud

Your university's IT admin will need to make an application for access. What you need to know Adobe is temporarily making Creative Cloud free for teachers and students. The offer is aimed at enabling them to continue being productive as they work and study from home. Students cannot individually avail the promo, however, as the application for access needs to be made by a university's IT admin. As universities around the world shut their campuses and organizations ask their employees to work from home, many tech companies are making their products available to educational institutes free for use. Google and Microsoft have both made their large-scale communication and videoconferencing tools free for everyone, and now Adobe is temporarily giving free Creative Cloud access to students and teachers. The subscription, which usually costs $79.49 per month, will give affected students and teachers access to the entire range of Adobe's applications, such as Photoshop

Google's new Guest Mode is like incognito mode for Google Assistant

Your interactions with Google Assistant will not be saved when Guest Mode is turned on. What you need to know Google Assistant is getting a new Guest Mode for privacy-conscious users. When it's turned on, the virtual assistant will not save any of its interactions with you. Turning it on and off is as simple as a single voice command. Google this week announced a new Guest Mode for its virtual assistant that's designed with privacy-conscious folks in mind. A simple "Hey Google, turn on Guest Mode" will ensure that none of your interactions with Google Assistant are collected by the company and nor will they be used to 'personalize your experience' — often an indirect way of referring to targeted ads. When it's on, the Assistant will play a special chime to let you know. Smart displays with Assistant will also show a guest icon on the screen. And you can always check for yourself by saying, "Hey Google, is Guest Mode on?" Even with G
