Protect and stylize your Galaxy S21 FE with the best cases

The Galaxy S21 FE may be fashionably late to the party thanks to supply issues and all this nonsense (waves dismissively at 2021), but it's here at last with a small price cut and a larger screen. Whether you're picking one up from Samsung or your carrier, your new phone deserves the best protection at the best price, which is why we've rounded up the best Samsung Galaxy S21 cases for you to choose from, whatever your style or budget.

Vibrant grip

Caseology Nano Pop

Staff pick

This case has the perfect blend of compact yet cushioned, flashy yet functional. Caseology's Nano Pop Series offers robust protection around the S21 FE's sweet, sweet cameras while staying slim and stylish.

Ready to work

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro Series

This mil-spec rugged case uses its size to hold a wide, stable kickstand that works in both portrait and landscape mode. The built-in screen protector has a special circle of adhesive to ensure you still get crystal clear fingerprint scans to unlock your phone.

$25 at Amazon

No more glare

Ringke Fusion

Clear cases are normally shiny and crystal clear and absolutely smudge-prone, and Ringke understands how that's not exactly glamorous for your Galaxy S21, so it offers a matte clear case to avoid the glare and obvious grime.

$14 at Amazon (Clear Matte)

The eternal favorite

Spigen Rugged Armor Designed for Galaxy S21 FE

While Spigen debuts new designs every few years, the classic Rugged Armor remains one of the most popular cases on the market a decade on. The accents extending from the camera module add grip while carbon fiber is still kicking around at the bottom.

$16 at Amazon

Hold more comfortably

Samsung Clear Slim Strap Cover

This unique first-party case comes with two detachable straps, one exactly matching the translucent case and the other an accent to provide a little more vibrance. The strap allows you to more securely hold your phone while reaching for the far edge or taking a selfie.

Ruggedly handsome

CaseBorne ArmadilloTek V Galaxy S21 FE Case

Like the Supcase UB Pro, this heavy duty, multi-layered case is built to take a beating. Unlike the UB Pro, though, there's no built-in film screen protector. This lets you can grab a more durable tempered glass screen protector.

$20 at Amazon

Ready to drop the

Incipio Duo

With 12-foot impact resistance, a wonderfully grippy antimicrobial texture, re-inforced bumpers to help prevent bends, and three understated colorways, the Incipio Duo is a heavy duty case without the heavy duty bulk.

$40 at Incipio

Great feel, understated look

Caseology Vault

Available in Matte Black and a soft Sage Green, the Vault feels absolutely wonderful in the hand, grippy and velvety without any bulk at all. The Vault is a solid case for those seeking slim, understated protection.

From $14 at Amazon 

Slim but sturdy

Speck Presidio ExoTech

Though it lacks Speck's hallmark ridges, the Presidio ExoTech's soft-touch exterior feels premium in the hand without a premium price tag. You still get mil-spec durability and the MicroBan coating.

$30 at Speck

Foam party

Spigen Tough Armor Designed for Galaxy S21 FE

Once a dual-layer case, the Spigen Tough Armor now conceals a foam lining for higher, more robust drop protection. The kickstand snapped flush on the hard outer shell also lets you easily binge YouTube in the break room and beyond.

$18 at Amazon

Dark horse competitor

Ringke Onyx

The Ringke Onyx may not be as well known as the Spigen Rugged Armor or Caseology Vault, but its hues perfectly complement the Galaxy S21 FE's Lavender, Olive, and Graphite colorways, adding grip and an anchor point for straps or phone charms.

$13 at Amazon

Dust cover

OtterBox Galaxy S21 FE Commuter Series

Most cases with silicone plugs to keep dust, dirt, water, snow, and sand out your USB-C port are usually tanks, but the Commuter gives us that protection while still staying a decently compact size. The rubber along the back also keeps it from sliding off anything.

$45 at OtterBox

Show off that color

Spigen Liquid Crystal Series

Samsung brought us some unique colorways with the Galaxy S21 FE and that not-quite-faded Army green and a much prettier Lavendar, and the Liquid Crystal shows it off perfectly. to hide smudges and scuffs, grab the Glitter variant!

$15 at Amazon (Clear) $16 at Amazon (Glitter)

Secure carry-all

TUCCH Magnetic PU Leather Folio

This pleather wallet case blocks RFID signals to avoid someone stealing your credit card info while still allowing NFC to work. Coming in nine colors and sporting three credit card slots, this wallet case also comes with a lifetime warranty.

$21 at Amazon

Bold and muted accents

CaseBorne ArmadilloTek S Series

This rugged clear case eschews the clear bumpers that look terrible on the edges and corners for colored bumpers that pop metallically against your S21 FE's colorway or subtly complement it with matte hues.

$16 at Amazon (Clear) $16 at Amazon (Ttanslucent)

The best Galaxy S21 FE cases balance style and protection

The popularity of the Galaxy S20 FE helped spur the availability of top-tier cases for its successor, meaning that we won't have to wait for the good stuff the way other phone series might. Name brand options from Supcase, Caseology, Ringke, and more mean we can protect our new phones in style on Day One.

I'm ecstatic to see the Caseology Nano Pop come to the S21 FE, as the case only came to about five Samsung models in 2021. The Light Violet colorway is what I rocked on my Lavender S21 and the S21 FE is going to look even better with it thanks to the better-matched camera modules. The Blueberry Navy with yellow accents resonates with hundreds of sports teams (better luck next year, Michigan), but the Light Violet is perfection with the S21 FE.

If you're wanting to bulk up your protection a little, Supcase and OtterBox both have ruggedly handsome options, though Supcase gives you more for less with the UB Pro's kickstand and silicone dust flap, which I highly recommend buying if you do yard work, shop work, or any amount of work in messy environs. Cover your USB-C port, use a wonderful wireless charger, and avoid the annoyance or agony of sawdust or splinters screwing up your only port.

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

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
