is putting the Galaxy Note 20
and Note 20 Ultra
up for pre-order today, and, on the runup to the Note 20 series
August 21 release, it would be an excellent idea to grab a case for wrapping the phablets in, given their respective $999 and $1299 starting prices.
Official Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Ultra case prices
You may think that the best Note 20 cases would be the official ones, and you would be somewhat right but they are pricey. To soothe the Note 20 cases price pain, Samsung is offering a $100 accessory credit with a Note 20 5G purchase, and a $150 credit for a Note 20 Ultra upon today's preorders start.
There are the all-time favorites to choose from, such as the S-View Flip Cover, Silicone Cover Case, LED View Cover Case, Leather Wallet, and Rugged Protective Cover Case but also the new fabric Kvadrat line that made a cameo with the S20 series. The LED Back Cover is also inherited from the Galaxy S20 trio, and brings a notification light to the Note 20 lineup.
Best official Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra cases:
Note 20 Ultra Leather Cover
If you are after adding not just protection, but also style, the Leather Cover is your best bet for the Note 20 Ultra. This case is elegant, thin, and extremely pleasant to the touch. Plus, you know that leather just gets better as it ages.
We have the black color here and while we can admit that it's not the most protective case (don't get it if you are afraid you can drop your phone), it will protect your Note from a light fall and from scratches.
Note 20 Ultra Silicone Cover
This silicone cover is all about the color and the rubberized feel makes the phone feel bounce and when protected should it fall. But it's the pure white that just shines at you and the nice silky, soft touch feel on the back that we find addictive.
The case is not too big and bulky, buttons remain clicky and it offers a decent amount of protection too, all for a very reasonable price.
Note 20 Ultra Clear Protective Cover
If you want to showcase that beautiful bronze color on the back of the Note 20 Ultra yet still want an excellent amount of protection from not just scratches, but also drops, this slightly bigger case will do the job just fine.
It's a clear case, but with rubber sides with added texture for a firm grip. The front of the phone is protected to and the camera is surrounded by a raised lip so it won't scratch when the phone is laying flat on its back.
Note 20 Ultra Kvadrat Cover
The most distinct case in this round-up is the one that will gather the most attention: with a cozy, carpet-like finish on the back, the Kvadrat case will add a bit of warmth to your everyday routine.
Get this case if you want to be different and if you like that distinct texture on the back of it, but keep in mind that there is rubber on the sides so this case does offer a reasonable amount of protection too. It's worth mentioning that the textile for the case is made entirely from recycled PET bottles. Good for the environment!
Note 20 Ultra Smart Clear View (LED) Cover
Another case that offers full protection from both the front and the back of the phone, is the Smart Clear View (LED) Cover. A tiny screen on the side will show you useful information such as time, date, battery level, all of that when the case is shut, and you can also pick up calls without opening the case as they appear with tiny icons that you can interact with.
The case features a pleasant textile finish and a reasonable amount of protection, and it fits the Note 20 Ultra perfectly.
Note 20 Ultra LED Wallet Cover Case
If you want a wallet type of a case which protects not just the back of the phone, but the front as well, the LED Wallet Cover Case is probably your best pick. When shut, it features an LED screen that will notify you about incoming notifications or calls, and for calls you can just slide on the icon and start talking without ever opening the case.
In addition, the case has a space for a credit card, and it even has some nice customization controls via a dedicated app that pops up automatically once you start using the case.
Note 20 Ultra Protective Standing Cover
If you need maximum protection, go for the "protective" cover of course! This big and bulky case will engulf your phone in its grip and will ensure it stays safe even if it falls from a distance. The added benefit here is convenience as the case comes with two kickstands for two different angles you can set your phone and enjoy watching videos without having to hold it all the time.
I love the kickstand, and this case definitely deserves your attention.
