The best cases for Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 in 2023

Latest Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 builds on the success of 2021 hit sleeper smartphone, The Galaxy Z Flip 3. While the durability of phones has increased over the years, it’s prudent to be careful, especially with a foldable phone like the Galaxy Z Flip 4. The number of flip case options available isn’t huge, but grabbing a Galaxy Z Flip 4 case isn’t difficult and can help give you extra peace of mind that your phone will stay safe even after a drop. In fact, there are more options available than the Flip 4’s predecessor – i Galaxy Z Flip 3 had amazing cases. Anyone who is looking for a stylish case or prefers functionality over fashion will find a case that suits their preferences.

We have tried many of these models and can attest to their quality. As new Z Flip 4 cases come out, we’ll be testing them and updating this list accordingly so you can find the best deals available.

Available in three colors, Caseology Nano Pop is soft to the touch and offers decent protection thanks to the raised camera ring. The dual-layer design with eye-catching color finishes gives the case a little extra pop. Please note that Caseology is a sub-brand of Spigen.

Samsung’s Transparent Ring Cover is a semi-transparent version of the Ring Cover. While it doesn’t have the same soft-touch finish and isn’t as protective as this case, it’s slim and shows off the phone’s exterior color. It usually costs $30, but we’ve seen discounts before.

The Speck Presidio Perfect-Clear Fold, one of my favorites for the Galaxy Z Flip 3, returns for the Z Flip 4. The Presidio Perfect-Clear Fold is rated for 13-foot drop protection, and it’s the most protective clear case I’ve tried, although there is no hinge protection. It comes in a perfectly bright and glitter-saturated version. (Note that the photo above is of the Galaxy Z Flip 3, but the Z Flip 4 version should be almost identical.)

Samsung’s silicone ring case returns to the Galaxy Z Flip 4 with minor design improvements. It’s protective, has a nice soft-touch finish, and has a built-in ring to help keep your phone from being dropped – and you can also attach the ring to a lanyard and wear the phone around your neck. Unfortunately, while I could kind of prop up the phone with the ring on certain surfaces, I’d love this case even more if it really turned into a kickstand.

The case comes in many colors.

I didn’t like Otterbox’s Thin Flex case for the Galaxy Z Flip 3. It felt cheap and was hard to remove from the phone once put on. But the new version of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is much better and comes in translucent options, several of which have colored finishes (the color of the Pacific reef is shown in the photo). Although it has a two-piece design and no hinge protection, it now looks and feels like a premium case.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 Flap Leather Cover is an upgrade over last year’s Galaxy Flip 3 Leather Cover as it includes a flap to protect the hinges. It’s expensive, but nice – and slim. Available in three colors (black, peach and purple), the biggest drawback is that it is expensive, but we are already seeing discounts on it.

You can find a few generic Galaxy Z Flip 4 clear cases on Amazon, several of which cost less than $15. The Restone is interesting because while it’s technically a two-piece design with no hinge protection (for the Z Flip 4 hinge), it has its own hinge that holds the two pieces together and helps prevent them from sliding off the phone. It also has extra corner protection. (I haven’t used this particular Restone case yet, but I have used the Restone case on another phone and it was fine, especially for the low price.)

All these inexpensive clear cases say they have anti-yellowing protection (so your clear case doesn’t lose its transparency), but I don’t really believe these anti-yellowing claims.

Urban Armor Gear has a long history of creating attractively designed cases for a variety of phone models, and the Civilian range is one of the best rugged cases for the Z Flip 4. It comes in three colors – Black, Cross (Blue) and Olive – and offers hinge protection in a one-piece construction. You need to use glue on the inside of the case to keep the case from sliding around the phone.

Spigen has created several cases for the Galaxy Z Flip 4. As the name suggests, Tough Armor is durable and offers the best protection in the Spigen line. It is also the only Spigen case that has an integrated hinge protection cover.

When it comes to protective cases, this is one of the better ones and the only thing missing is the integrated kickstand. I also wish it came in more colors. Black is the only option for now. Expect a price drop in the coming weeks.

The Spigen Air Skin line of cases, which includes a Crystal Clear version as well as other color options, is a slim case that provides basic protection. I probably like the color versions more than the clear ones, but a lot of people like to show off the color of their phone, especially if they paid extra for one of the “tailor-made” colors.

It has the same soft-touch finish as the Samsung Ring case, but it has a strap instead of a ring. You slip your hand under the strap (and behind the phone), which allows you to grab and hold the phone without wrapping your fingers around it. It’s basically a security bar. The strap also provides a little protection for the hinge when folding the phone. In addition, the end of the strap can be attached to a leash or attached to another belt (e.g. a bag or backpack).

In addition to having some utility, the strap also seems designed to draw attention to the phone. For better or for worse, it just does, so if you’re using this case, plan on having people ask you about your phone. It comes in two colors (white or black), but an extra strap is sold separately if you want one that better suits your personal style.

Otterbox only makes two cases for the Galaxy Z Flip 4: the Thin Flex (see above) and this one, the Symmetry Flex, which now provides hinge protection and is the best protective case for the Z Flip 4 (it comes in more color options for the Z Flip 4) . It’s expensive, but we should see some discounts on it in the coming weeks.

Zagg has a new “eco” screen protector for the Z Flip 4’s external screen that it says is biodegradable, a first for a screen protector. Together with the outer screen protector it makes for the Galaxy Z Flip 3, it is the smallest screen protector that Zagg produces. However, somehow it costs almost as much as the screen protectors it makes for much larger screens.

The Gear4 Bridgetown case shares some similarities with Spigen’s Tough Armor case (see below). This too is a hard case that comes in black only and has nice hinge protection. The case looks similar to the version for the Z Flip 3, but the new version is a bit sleeker and the hinge cover has been improved. This is one of the best protective cases for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4. It’s just a shame it wasn’t available in more colors or a transparent version.

Do Galaxy Z Flip 3 cases fit Galaxy Z Flip 4?

Yes and no. Your old Z Flip 3 case can fit your Z Flip 4 – and stay on it – but there are some slight differences in their design (and dimensions) that might make it not a perfect fit. For example, the flashlight on the Zip Flip 4 is in a slightly different position than the flashlight on the Z Flip 3 and may not be centered in the cutout on the Z Flip 3 case. Also, the top microphone may become partially obscured if you use the Z Flip 3 case with the Z Flip 4 You can try an old case with a new phone to see how well it fits (and potentially try to mod it up a bit), but there’s a good chance you’ll get an official Z Flip 4 case to go with it.

Do Galaxy Z Flip 4 cases protect the entire phone, including the hinge?

Most Galaxy Z Flip 3 cases consisted of two parts. But with the Z Flip 4, we see more one-piece cases that offer some protection to the hinges. If that’s something you’re looking for, several of these types will protect the hinge.

Are there screen protectors for Galaxy Z Flip 4?

As with the Galaxy Z Flip 3, Samsung does not sell – or allow anyone to sell – the home screen protectors for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 front screen. The Z Flip 4 uses a high-tech flexible display that comes with a pre-applied Samsung screen protector ( some people had problems with it peeling off on the Z Flip 3 and just took it off). You can find a handful of screen protectors for your mini outdoor display.

Do all Galaxy Z Flip 4 cases support wireless charging?

Most, but not all, of the cases on this list allow you to wirelessly charge your Z Flip 4 with the case on. Those that have an integrated kickstand, especially if they are made of metal, may require the case to be removed in order to charge the phone wirelessly.
