Samsung has finally launched the brand new Galaxy smartphones for 2019, and instead of the usual two phones, the company launched three different S10 phones this time. Out of those three phones, the Galaxy S10e is one of the most exciting phones. It’s priced competitively at $749, and at that price, the phone brings quite a lot to the table. So, if you’ve just bought yourself a brand new Galaxy S10e, you might want to invest in a case to protect it in case of any accidental drops and scuffs. So, here are the 10 best cases for Galaxy S10e that you can buy:
1. Samsung LED Back Cover
If you want a case for your Galaxy S10e that does more than just protect your phone, the Samsung LED Back Cover is definitely going to interest you. Unlike the other LED covers that Samsung makes, this one uses LEDs on the back to grab your attention when a notification comes in; but that’s not all, thanks to the built-in icon editor, you can assign different icons to events and contacts. Plus, the case uses a sensor to light up according to the battery remaining in your phone, to ensure it doesn’t use too much of your battery.
There are a bunch of other official cases from Samsung as well that you can check out, including the S-view Flip cover ($59.99) that lets you easily interact with your phone even with the case closed, the LED wallet cover ($64.99) that has space for storing a card along with your phone and comes with a colorful LED display to notify you of calls, messages, and other notifications. There are also the Leather Back cover ($49.99), the Rugged Protective Cover that comes with a kickstand ($34.99), and a simple Silicone cover ($29.99).

2. Spigen Slim Armor CS
If you prefer carrying a card or two with you and leave your wallet behind a lot, the Spigen Slim Armor CS might be something you’re interested in. The case comes with a card slot on the back (probably why it has ‘CS’ in the name), that has enough space for two cards. As the name suggests, the case has a slim profile, so it won’t make your gorgeous new phone feel extremely bulky, and it still offers a considerable amount of protection to the phone thanks to its shock absorbing TPU interior and the polycarbonate exterior. It also uses air-cushions for added protection in case you drop your phone. The Spigen Slim Armor CS case has a raised lip design as well, so even if your phone falls face flat on the ground, the screen will be protected from impact, reducing the chances of you breaking the display on your Galaxy S10e.

3. CaseMate Tough Clear Case
The Galaxy S10e has a beautiful glass back and comes in gorgeous colors. So, if you’d rather not hide the color of your phone, but still protect it from drops and scuffs, the CaseMate Tough Clear Case is probably your best bet. The case comes with CaseMate’s one-piece platform design and is rated to protect your phone from drops up to 10 feet. It’s also compatible with wireless charging, so you can still drop your phone on your bedside wireless charger at night without having to take the case off. For buttons, thee CaseMate clear case has metallic buttons on the case, which means less fumbling around trying to find buttons on your phone, and more tactile feedback when you press them. CaseMate also offers a lifetime warranty on this case, so you don’t need to worry about the quality here either.

4. Otterbox Symmetry Series Love Triangle Case
For people who want slightly more style on their case, without compromising on the sleek design, and the peace of mind that a case should afford you, the Otterbox Symmetry Series’ Love Triangle case is something you should check out. I mean literally, just take a look at the image below.
That looks pretty good, doesn’t it? What’s more, this is a clear case, so you’ll be able to steal glances at the pretty color of your phone under the design of the case. It’s also pretty slim, which means you won’t have to feel like you’re compromising on the sleek build of the Galaxy S10e. The case is made out of synthetic rubber and polycarbonate, and can easily protect your phone against drops, scratches, bumps, fumbles, and all the other words you can use to describe this situation in. Plus, Otterbox offers a lifetime warranty on the case as well, which is an added bonus.
Also, if you’re looking for everything I just described above, but you don’t like the design, the Symmetry Series case is also available in a bunch of other colors and patterns, as well as a clear case, so you can check those out as well on the Otterbox website.

5. Galaxy S10e Folio Case with Kickstand
Kickstands are great. You might not use them very often, but they come in handy when you’re watching a movie on your phone (and you probably will on that stunning display), or when you’re taking a video call (in landscape, for whatever reason). Well, if either of those situations describe your usual usage of a smartphone, this folio case with a kickstand should suit you just fine. The case comes in a bunch of designs, and should easily protect your phone from drops. Since this is a folio case, you can rest assured that even if your phone falls face flat, the display will be protected. Inside, you’ll find spaces for a couple of cards along with some currency bills so you don’t have to carry your wallet everywhere with you.

6. Vapesoon Full Body Case with Screen Protector
I have no idea why anyone would call their case company ‘Vapesoon’ but there we have it. This case is perfect for people who want a simple looking case, that will protect their prized possession from every single angle. The Vapesoon case is built from high grade TPU for shock absorption, and polycarbonate so you can rest easy and handle your phone the way you want to. The case has built-in buttons that protrude conveniently, and will allow you to easily find and push the right buttons every time, without having to fumble around trying to not accidentally hit the Bixby button. There’s a screen protector here too, that fits over the case, and won’t really get in the way. Apart from that, the case features raised bezels around the cameras, to protect them as well. Also, Vapesoon claims that the case doesn’t interfere with wireless charging, so that’s great, plus you get a 1 year warranty on it in case something goes wrong with the case.

7. CaseMate Waterfall Glitter Case
If you’re looking for a case that will not only protect your phone, but also add a lot of glamour to its overall look, you should check out the CaseMate Waterfall line up of cases. Specifically, I’m talking about the Gold variant of the case. The Waterfall case is built with CaseMate’s one-piece platform design, and will protect your smartphone from drops up to 10 feet. It features metallic buttons which is great for ease of use, and if you were wondering, the glitter inside flows around as you move the case, giving it a very dynamic look. Plus, CaseMate offers lifetime warranty on the case. However, keep in mind that CaseMate recommends that you remove the case before wirelessly charging your device.

The case brings a cool looking leather-style look and feel which is great if you’re looking for a luxurious case. It’ll protect your phone against drops and scuffs, and it has two credit card slots, which, like I said are RFID protected, so you’re safe against people trying to steal your money using RFID.

9. Otterbox Strada Series Leather Folio Case
While the Olixar Farley case I mentioned above comes in a leather-like look thanks to its faux leather make, if you’re looking for a case that’s actual leather, the Otterbox Strada is one you should check out. The case is made out of genuine leather, which lends it a great look and also makes it grippy to hold. There’s a vertical slot inside that can hold a credit card, and the inner shell is made out of polycarbonate to provide greater protection against drops and bumps. Plus, as is usual with most OtterBox cases, this one also comes with lifetime warranty.
