The Best Samsung Galaxy S24 Cases

You’ll inevitably drop your smartphone. Once at a theater, my Galaxy Note slipped out of my pocket and fell onto the seat’s metal frame, crushing the side button so that the phone kept trying to activate Bixby, Samsung’s voice assistant. The phone was very hot by the end of the movie. A case might have prevented any damage … or not.

A case isn’t a guaranteed form of protection from drops, but it could help, especially if you pair it with a good screen protector. I’ve tested more than 50 cases and screen protectors for Samsung’s Galaxy S24, S24+, and S24 Ultra smartphones to find the best that offers comprehensive defense at reasonable prices. You’ll also find a few handy-dandy accessories to round out your new phone. Going with last year’s model instead? We’ve got a roundup of cases for the Galaxy S23 series too.
