Best Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 Cases in 2022

Samsung’s latest Galaxy Z Flip 4 Based on its success Galaxy Z Flip 3, the sleeper smartphone hit of 2021. While phone durability has improved over the years, it still makes sense to be cautious, especially with a foldable phone like the Galaxy Z Flip 4. The number of case options is not extensive, but there are more available than its predecessor – – and The Galaxy Z Flip 3 had some incredible cases. Anyone looking for a stylish case or those who value function over fashion will find a case to their liking here.

We have tried many of these models and can attest to their quality As more new cases for the Z Flip 4 arrive, we’ll test them and 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 dual-layer design with eye-catching trim color gives the case a little extra pop. Note that Caseology is a sub-brand of Spigen.

Samsung’s Clear Ring Cover is a transparent version of its Ring Cover. While it doesn’t have the same soft-to-the-touch finish and isn’t quite as protective as that case, it’s thinner and lets you show off your phone’s exterior color. It’s normally $30, but we’re already seeing 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. The Presidio Perfect-Clear Fold is rated for 13-foot drop protection, and is the most protective clear case I’ve tried, even though there’s no hinge protection. It comes in a perfectly clear version and a glossy one. (Note that the image above is of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 but the Z Flip 4 version should be almost identical).

Samsung’s silicon cover with ring returns for the Galaxy Z Flip 4 with some minor design improvements. It’s protective, has a nice soft-to-touch finish, and there’s a built-in ring to help prevent you from dropping the phone — and you can clip the ring to a lanyard and wear the phone around your neck. Alas, while I could kind of help the phone by using the ring on certain surfaces, I would have liked the case even more if it actually converted into a kickstand.

The case comes in multiple colors.

I didn’t like Otterbox’s thin flex case for the Galaxy Z Flip 3. It felt cheap and it was hard to turn your phone off once you turned it on. But the new version of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is much better and comes in translucent options, including some colored trims (the photo shows Pacific Reef color). 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 Flap Leather Cover is an upgrade from last year’s leather cover case for the Galaxy Flip 3, as it includes a flap to protect the hinge. It’s expensive, but beautiful — and thin. Available in three color options (black, peach and purple), the biggest knock against it is that it’s expensive, but we’re already seeing discounts on it.

the amazon

You can find a bunch of generic clear cases for the Galaxy Z Flip 4 on Amazon, some of which cost less than $15. The Restone is interesting because while it’s technically a two-piece design without a hinge protection (as for the Z Flip 4’s hinge), it has a hinge of its own that holds the two pieces together and helps prevent them from sliding off the phone. It also has a bit of extra corner protection. (I haven’t used this particular Restone case yet but I’ve used a Restone case on other phones and it was fine, especially for its low price).

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

Urban Armor Gear

Urban Armor Gear has long produced attractively designed cases for various phone models, and its Civilian series is one of the best hard cases for the Z Flip 4. It is available in three color options — black, mallard (blue) and olive — and offers hinge protection in a one-piece design. You need to use glue inside the case to keep the case from sliding around the phone.

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

As far as protectives go, it’s one of the better ones and is only missing an integrated kickstand. I kind of wish it came in more colors. Black is now the only option. It is expected to drop in price in the coming weeks.

Spigen’s Air Skin case line, which includes a crystal clear version as well as other color options, is a thin case that offers basic protection. I probably prefer the color version over the clear one, but a lot of people like to show off the color of their phone, especially if you pay extra for one of the “bespoke” colors.

It has the same soft-to-the-touch finish as Samsung’s Ring Case, but instead of a ring, it includes a strap. You slide your hand under the strap (and behind the phone), which allows you to get a grip and hold it without wrapping your fingers around it. It is basically a safety strap. The strap also provides some protection for the hinge when you fold the phone. Additionally, you can attach the end of the strap to a lanyard or clip it to another strap (say, on a bag or backpack).

In addition to having some utility, the strap seems designed to give your phone some attention. For better or worse, it does just that, so plan on people asking you about your phone if you use this case. It comes in two colors (white or black), but additional straps are sold separately if you want one that better fits your personal style.

Otterbox makes just two cases for the Galaxy Z Flip 4: the Thin Flex (see above) and this one, the Symmetry Flex, which now offers hinge protection and is a top protective case for the Z Flip 4 (it also comes in more color options). 4) for flip. 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. Along with the external screen protector for the Galaxy Z Flip 3, this is the smallest screen protector that Jag has made. Yet it makes up for a much larger screen than a screen protector that costs almost as much.

The Gear4’s Bridgetown case shares some similarities with Spigen’s Tough Armor case (see below). It’s also a solid case that only comes in black and has some nice hinge protection. The case looks similar to the version of the Z Flip 3 but the new version is a bit smoother and the hinge protector has been improved. This is 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.

Does the Galaxy Z Flip 3 case fit the Galaxy Z Flip 4?

Yes and no. Your old Z Flip 3 case may fit — and stay on — your Z Flip 4, but there are some small differences in their design (and dimensions) that can make it a less-than-perfect fit. For example, the flashlight on the Zip Flip 4 is positioned slightly differently than the flashlight on the Z Flip 3 and may not be centered in the cutout of a Z Flip 3 case. Also, the top microphone can be partially covered if you use the Z Flip 3 case with the Z Flip 4. You can try out your old case with your new phone to see how well it fits (and maybe try modifying it a bit), but you can get an official Z Flip 4 case for that.

Does the Galaxy Z Flip 4 case protect the entire phone, including the hinge?

Most Galaxy Z Flip 3 cases come in two pieces. But with the Z Flip 4, we’re looking at a more one-piece case that offers some hinge protection. Several of these picks will protect the hinge if that’s what you’re looking for.

Is there a screen protector for the Galaxy Z Flip 4?

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

Do all Galaxy Z Flip 4 cases allow wireless charging?

In most, but not all, cases on this list you can charge the Z Flip 4 wirelessly with the case on. For those that feature an integrated kickstand, especially if it’s made of metal, you may need to remove the case to charge your phone wirelessly.
