The Samsung Galaxy S10e is the cheaper of the Galaxy S10 lineup, coming in at $749, and it's likely going to be a big seller for Samsung. But it does still have a glass back, and is just as fragile as the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. Which means, you are going to want a case to keep that smartphone protected. There are plenty of Galaxy S10e cases on the market right now, but we've rounded up the very best, that are available right now. These cases range from clear cases, to rugged cases, to thin cases, and everything in between.
Poetic Kickstand Rugged Case
This is probably one of the better looking rugged cases available for the Galaxy S10e right now, and it also has a kickstand included, which is a really nice thing to have here. As it allows you to prop up your phone and watch movies and TV shows while traveling and such, without having to hold your phone the entire time.
Poetic has reinforced corners all around this case, making it thicker but also giving it more protection. This is because when phones are dropped, they almost always hit the corner of the phone. So giving it some more protection there is a smart idea, as it is more likely to keep your Galaxy S10e intact.
You can pick up the Poetic Kickstand Rugged Case from Amazon using the link below, for just $16.95.
X-Doria Defense Shield Series
This particular case is also available for the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+, it's another rugged case for the Galaxy S10e that will keep it protected, even if you are a bit on the clumsy side.
X-Doria was able to make a clear case, with a thicker bumper, giving you more grip on the phone. But also giving it more protection while also allowing you to still show off the design of the Galaxy S10e. Since it is still a pretty good looking smartphone from Samsung. The bumper portion of the case is pretty grippy, with soft-touch plastic there, that will keep the phone in your hand.
You can pick up the X-Doria Defense Shield Series case in a few colors, which includes red, black, and iridescent. It is available from the link below on Amazon, at a price of $29.95.
Spigen Tough Armor
Spigen's Tough Armor is another really popular case, for just about any smartphone out there. It's not quite as rugged as some of the others on this list, but it is indeed thick. This is a dual-layer case, that has a soft inner layer that protects your phone. And then there is the hard case that is on the outside, to take impact when the phone is dropped.
This dual-layer case is popular because it doesn't look all that ugly, like some other rugged cases on the market, but it also provides plenty of protection. With a lip over the display, and reinforced corners to boot. This means that if you do happen to drop your Galaxy S10e, you'll still be protected.
You can pick up the Spigen Tough Armor in a few colors. These include gunmetal, black, graphite gray and rose gold. The Spigen Tough Armor is currently $15.99 and is available from Amazon using the link below.
Ringke's option here is not quite a rugged case, but it has been approved by military drop tests. So if you do drop your phone, you won't need to worry about it shattering with the Ringke Fusion-X on it.
The Fusion-X has a clear backside, with a thicker bumper, that keeps it protected when it does get dropped. This means that you're going to be able to show off the design of the Galaxy S10e, while also still keeping it protected. Because accidents do happen. The bumper portion of the case does come in a couple of colors. Those include black, royal purple and space blue.
You can pick up the Ringke Fusion-X from Amazon for just $12.99 (there is currently a $1 off coupon you can clip, to get it for $11.99 instead, no word on how long that will be available for, however) using the link below.
The Incipio NGP is a good looking, premium TPU case. It's a bit thicker than your average TPU case that's on the market right now, but this is because it does still offer plenty of protection for your Galaxy S10e. It has shock absorption so that when the Galaxy S10e is dropped, you are still able to keep using it, since the case takes all of the damage, instead of the phone. Which is why you bought the case anyways.
Incipio offers the NGP in a few different colors. These include pink, black and clear. It does have an interesting design, with the top two-thirds being transparent mostly, and the bottom third being more translucent. It looks pretty nice on a black Galaxy S10e.
You can pick up the Incipio NGP from Amazon for just $19.99 using the link down below.
Spigen Liquid Air Armor
Those looking for a very thin case, the Spigen Liquid Air Armor is going to be a good option for you.
This is a very thin case from Spigen. It has a nice triangle pattern on the back, which gives it some grip. The only real downside to the Liquid Air Armor case is the fact that there is no lip for the screen. So it's really only protecting the sides and the back of the phone. But it is super thin, and looks really nice, especially in the matte black color.
You can pick up the Spigen Liquid Air Armor case from Amazon using the link below, for just $11.99.
Vofolen Cover Wallet Case
Being able to keep your credit and debit cards in your case with your phone, is a pretty neat idea. And that's exactly what this case does. That means that it is thicker than some of the others on this list, but you are getting a pretty good looking case that can hold some of your cards, meaning you won't need to carry a wallet any longer, and that's a good thing for everyone.
Vofolen offers this Cover Wallet Case in a few colors, which includes purple, black, navy and rose gold. It is a dual-layer case, with the outer-hard cover being a different color. The inner soft case is always black.
You can pick up the Vofollen Cover Wallet Case from Amazon using the link below for just $10.99.
Spigen Ultra Hybrid
The Spigen Ultra Hybrid is a good option for those that are looking for a clear case, that also can protect their smartphone. With this case, you'll be able to still show off the design of the Galaxy S10e, while also keeping it protected. Spigen has a thick bumper around the sides of the Galaxy S10e, which is going to keep the phone from getting shattered when it is dropped. Since phones do typically land on a corner or the side when they are dropped.
This is a somewhat thin case, that is also clear. So those that love the clear cases, this is the one to get. You can get the Spigen Ultra Hybrid in crystal clear or matte black. The color refers to the bumper only, the back is clear on both colors. The matte black does look nicer on the darker colored Galaxy S10e smartphones, though.
You can pick up the Spigen Ultra Hybrid from Amazon for just $11.99 (the matte black is $12.99 for some reason) using the link down below.
The Galaxy S10e may be the cheaper of the three Galaxy S10 smartphones, but that doesn't mean that you don't need a case for it - because you absolutely do. With the Galaxy S10e still sporting a glass back, it is very slippery, and luckily, all of the cases on this list will keep it protected, if you do drop it. Because let's face it, we all drop our phones at some point, it's always when we least expected it. With a case on the phone, it means that we can make sure that our smartphone won't shatter when it does hit the ground.
All of the cases on this list are great options for the Galaxy S10e. You may have noticed that Spigen made it into this list a few times, and that is because Spigen makes some really great, high-quality cases for low prices. It also has about a dozen different cases available for the Galaxy S10e (and the other Galaxy S10 models). From rugged, to thin, to clear cases and everything in between. You really can't go wrong with their cases, especially their thinner ones, seeing as they still offer some great protection.
The Galaxy S10e officially goes on sale this Friday. If you did pre-order, yours will be there shortly, but you're going to want to get a case for it, so you have something to protect your Galaxy S10e as soon as you take it out of the box. We've seen many people drop their phone as soon as it is taken out of the box and shatter it. So it's better to be safe than sorry.
