Samsung Galaxy S21 managed to impress us with what it brings to the table, especially when it comes to raw firepower and camera features. One aspect that really struck me was the fresh design of the phone, especially the two-tone finish. The device also has an IP68 rating, which means it can survive a few occasional dunks in a bucket of water. What this protection does not guarantee is security against scratches and accidental falls. Of course, a suitcase is your best bet here, but at the expense of hiding its cute design. Clear cases come to the rescue here. And to save you the hassle, we’ve rounded up the best Clear Sases for the Galaxy S21:
I can say from my own experience that the ESR Clear Cases are one of the thinnest protection solutions for phones. This shock-resistant case also has raised edges to protect the camera island and display.
Another excellent option from ESR, this shock-absorbing case has a smudge-proof, clear surface. With the dual-mode stand, you can place the phone in both portrait and landscape orientation.
The impact-resistant Ainoya Clear Grip Case features ribbed sides and padded corners for added protection from accidental falls from heights of up to 6 feet. There is also an oleophobic coating on the back.
The IVSO offering offers two-layer protection, an antioxidant layer against yellowing and impact-resistant corners. It also has a screen protector that can handle falls from up to 20 feet away.
The Arae Clear Case for the Galaxy S21 has a bit too pronounced corners that supposedly offer excellent protection against bumps. In addition, the corners are hardened to withstand deformation over time.
The BAISRKE protective cover for the Samsung Galaxy S21 is made of high-quality TPU and polycarbonate, has a scratch-resistant frame and offers military-grade protection. The raised lips on both sides are an added security.
Temdan’s clear case for the Samsung flagship features a precision-molded frame that provides the highest level of protection from mechanical shock. A screen protector is also installed.
Instead of relying on protruding corners with air cushions, the Restoo case opts for an evenly thick frame that provides better shielding and also looks clean. And oh, the raised lips offer more security.
The cheapest option on this list is the PULEN Clear Case, which doesn’t compromise on protecting your expensive flagship. It’s made of soft gel and has raised corners and bezels for maximum protection.
These were our top picks for the best Galaxy S21 clear cases. However, if I were to pick a favorite, I would go for the ESR metal stand. The ESR housing made of durable polycarbonate is quite thin and has padded sides to protect against bumps and scratches. The best thing about it is the metal stand on the back, with which you can place the Galax S21 on a flat surface in both portrait and landscape format. You can also use the angle to make angle adjustments within a 60-degree range.
However, if you don’t want to spend a lot of cash on a clear case, the PULEN clear case does the job for less than eight dollars. The PULEN case made of soft silicone protects your phone from dirt, stains and scratches. In addition, the raised corners and bezels on both sides ensure that the device can brush off mechanical shocks and abrasion forces.
I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years, having worked with names like NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from the latest news, I’ve checked out my fair share of devices that range from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I’ve also interviewed tech managers and appeared as a moderator on YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets.
