The Galaxy S10 is thin and beautiful, but it’s also fragile and $900, so be a dear and at least put it in a thin case so it has some protection from the big bad world. Not all cases are multi-stage tanks like OtterBoxes, and not all thin cases are just for show. These cases have the looks, lithe figures, and at least some measure of protection for your phone. Plus, you don’t lose any of the S10’s thinness.
Grippy and slim
Spigen Liquid Air Armor
This case is grippier and more interesting than the classic Spigen Rugged Armor while also feeling slimmer in the hand. I wish this came in a few more colors, but black goes with everything.
Thinnest case around
Totallee Ultra Thin
Totallee’s cases are jaw-droppingly thin, safeguarding your Galaxy S10 from scuffs and smudges without sacrificing its lithe look. They’re available in clear, opaque white, and matte black.
Clear as crystal
Spigen Liquid Crystal
The Liquid Crystal line is my favorite clear case around — only surpassed by its Glitter variant — because it’s thin, grippy, and doesn’t get in the way. This clear case is a keeper!
Thin candy cover
anccer Ultra Thin Fit
These thin, hard-shell cases may not add much drop protection, but it does give that glass back some extra scratch protection and grip. They’re available in five colors and two finishes.
A rainbow of color choices
Goospery Pearl Jelly Slim Thin Case
This squishy TPU case comes in nince colors around and beyond the color wheel — including a clear option — so that you can get the shade that best suits your style or wardrobe.
Cool under fire
Olixar Breathable Case
Available in Blue, Red, Rose Gold, and Black, this case’s mesh design is meant to help keep the S10 cool and prevent it from overheating. Mobile gamers, this case is for you!
Song of Time
The Snap Cases that Redbubble offers are a snap to get on and off — pun intended — and they come in millions of styles, like this breathtaking Zelda design series by rakimartinez.
Not a Meh case
The International Day Of Meh
I’ve been a fan of Panda and Polar Bear for years, so I love that Redbubble’s thin cases allow me to show that pride and gruffy Polar Bear indifference every day. "How was today, darling?" MEH.
Put some sparkle in your life
Spigen Liquid Crystal Glitter
This is the prettier and better version of the Liquid Crystal case, a thin case with a soft shine and glitter embedded within that obscures scratches, scuffs and IMEI information on the back of your phone.
Slim isn’t simple
When it comes to thin, you really can’t get much thinner or classier than the Totallee case, which has become the name in thin cases over the last two years, but the Spigen Air Armor comes close to that thinness and I dig that textured back design with its extra grip.
It’s also worth noting that while I adore the two Redbubble cases mentioned here, there are quite literally millions of thin hardshell cases with unique desgins that can bring tons of personality to your case. No matter your tastes, I bet you can find a case there that matches your style.
If none of these thin cases trike your fancy — though really, I’m not sure exactly how that could ever happen — then head over and take a gander at our our other favorite cases for the Galaxy S10 for something that does.
