CNET’s Patrick Holland calls the Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 3 “the first foldable you may actually want to buy.”
It’s been a popular model, if sales reports are any indication, and it may just be the first foldable to qualify as a mainstream phone. With that in mind, I’ve put together a list of the best Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 cases.
Unlike the best case list for Apple’s iPhone 13 or even the Galaxy S21, the number of companies making cases for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is relatively small, so there’s less to choose from. But sometimes fewer choices are better. With competition as fierce as ever, and exacting customers weeding out the excess, the cases available focus on features, grip and uncompromising style. I’ll be updating this list as I try out more cases (yes, I’ve tried all the cases on this list), so that you find the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 case of your dreams.
Do Galaxy Z Flip 3 cases protect the entire phone, including the hinge?
The majority of Galaxy Z Flip 3 cases come in two pieces, with only a few cases covering the hinge or offering some hinge protection. In my conversations with case-makers, designing a case that offers full hinge protection is a design challenge. But if that’s something you’re looking for, as I said, a few of these picks will protect the hinge.
