Best Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 Cases in 2023

Samsung’s latest Galaxy Z Flip 4 building on the success of 2021’s sleeper smartphone hit, the Galaxy Z Flip 3. While the durability of phones has increased over the years, it’s reasonable to be cautious, especially with a foldable phone like the Galaxy Z Flip 4. The number of flip cover options available isn’t extensive, but grabbing a Galaxy Z Flip 4- cover is not It is not difficult to do and can help give you extra peace of mind that your phone will remain safe if it falls. In fact, there are more choices available than the Flip 4’s predecessor had – and that The Galaxy Z Flip 3 had some incredible covers. Anyone looking for a stylish case or those who value function over fashion will find a case to suit their preferences here.

We have tried many of these models and can attest to their quality. As more new cases arrive for the Z Flip 4, we’ll put them to the test and will update this list accordingly so you can find the best deals available.

Caseology

Available in three color options, the Caseology Nano Pop has a soft-to-the-touch feel and offers decent protection with a raised camera ring. Its two-layer design with eye-catching trim colors gives the cover a little extra pop. Note that Caseology is a sub-brand of Spigen.

Samsung’s Clear Ring Cover is the transparent version of the Ring Cover. While it doesn’t have the same soft-to-touch finish and isn’t quite as protective as the case, it’s slim and lets you show off your phone’s exterior color. It’s normally $30, but we’ve already seen discounts on it.

Speck’s Presidio Perfect-Clear Fold, one of my favorites for the Galaxy Z Flip 3, returns for the Z Flip 4. Rated for 13 feet of drop protection, the Presidio Perfect-Clear Fold is the most protective clear case I’ve tried, though there is no hinge protection. It comes in a completely clear version and one imbued with glitter. (Note that the image above is of the Galaxy Z Flip 3, but the Z Flip 4 version should be almost identical).

Samsung’s ringed silicone case returns for the Galaxy Z Flip 4 with some small design improvements. It’s protective, it has a nice finish that’s soft to the touch, and it’s built-in ring prevents you from losing your phone—and you can also attach the ring to a lanyard and wear your phone around your neck. Alas, while I could kind of support the phone using the ring on certain surfaces, I would have liked the case even more if it actually turned into a stand.

The suitcase comes in several colors.

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

Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 4 Flip Leather Cover is an upgrade over last year’s Leather Cover for the Galaxy Flip 3, as it features a flap for hinge protection. It’s expensive, but nice – and slim. Available in three color options (black, peach and purple), the main downside is that it’s expensive, but we’re already seeing discounts on it.

Amazon

You can find a bunch of generic clear cases on Amazon for the Galaxy Z Flip 4, 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’s hinge), it has a separate hinge that holds the two pieces together and helps prevent them from sliding off the phone. It also has some extra corner protection. (I haven’t used this particular Restone case yet, but I have used a Restone case on another phone and it was fine, especially for the low price).

All these affordable clear cases say they have anti-yellowing protection (to prevent the clear case from losing its clarity), but I don’t really believe the anti-yellowing claims.

Urban Armor Gear

Urban Armor Gear has long made attractively designed cases for a variety of phone models, and the Civilian Series is one of the best cases for the Z Flip 4. It’s available in three color options – black, mallard (blue) and olive – and offers one-piece hinge protection design. You need to use the adhesive on the inside of the case to prevent the case from sliding around on the phone.

Spigen makes a few cases for the Galaxy Z Flip 4. As the name suggests, Tough Armor is durable and offers the most protection in Spigen’s line. It’s also the only Spigen case to have an integrated protective cover for the hinge.

As far as protective covers go, it’s one of the better ones and just lacks an integrated support. I also wish it came in more colors. Black is the only option for now. Expect to see price drops on it in the coming weeks.

Spigen’s Air Skin case line, 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 instead of the clear ones, but a lot of people like to show the color of their phone, especially if you’ve paid extra for one of the “custom” colors.

This has the same soft-to-touch finish as Samsung’s Ring case, but instead of a ring, it has a strap. You slide your hand under the strap (and behind the phone), which allows you to get a grip and hold onto the phone without wrapping your fingers around it. It’s actually a seat belt. The strap also provides some protection for the hinge when folding the phone. In addition, you can attach the end of the strap to a string or attach it to another strap (for example on a bag or backpack).

Aside from having some utility, the strap also seems designed to bring some attention to your phone. For better or worse, it does just that, so if you use this case, plan to have people asking you about your phone. It comes in two colors (white or black), but extra straps are 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, the Symmetry Flex, which now offers hinge protection and is a top-of-the-line protective case for the Z Flip 4 (it comes in multiple 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 exterior display that it says is biodegradable, a first for a screen protector. Along with the exterior screen protector it makes for the Galaxy Z Flip 3, this is the smallest screen protector Zagg makes. Still, it somehow costs almost as much as the screen protectors it does for much larger screens.

The Gear4’s Bridgetown case shares some similarities with Spigen’s Tough Armor case (see below). It is also a tough bag that only comes in black and has a nice hinge protection. The case is similar to the version for the Z Flip 3, but the new version is slightly slimmer and the hinge protector has been improved. It’s one of the best protective cases for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4. I just wish it was available in more colors, or a clear version.

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

Yes and no. Your old Z Flip 3 case can fit on the Z Flip 4 – and stay on – but there are some small differences in design (and dimensions) that can make it less than perfect. For example, the flashlight on the Zip Flip 4 is in a slightly different location than the flashlight on the Z Flip 3 and may not be centered in the cutout on a Z Flip 3 case. The top microphone can also be partially covered if you use a Z Flip 3 case with a Z Flip 4. You can try the old case with the new phone to see how well it fits (and possibly try to modify it a bit), but there’s a good chance you can get an official Z Flip 4 case for it.

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

Most Galaxy Z Flip 3 cases came in two parts. But with the Z Flip 4, we see multiple covers in one piece that provide some hinge protection. If that’s what you’re looking for, several of these choices will protect the hinge.

Are there screen protectors for the Galaxy Z Flip 4?

As with the Galaxy Z Flip 3, Samsung doesn’t sell – or allow anyone to sell – screen protectors for the main screen of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4. The Z Flip 4 uses a high-tech bendable display that comes with Samsung’s own pre-applied screen protector (some had issues with it peeling on the Z Flip 3 and simply took it off). You can find a handful of screen protectors for the external mini display.

Do all Galaxy Z Flip 4 cases allow wireless charging?

Most, but not all, of the cases on this list allow you to charge the Z Flip 4 wirelessly with the case on. Those with an integrated kickstand, especially if it’s made of metal, may require you to remove the cover to charge the phone wirelessly.
