While Samsung’s much awaited flagship Android phones Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are shipping out now, you’re going to need protective cases to secure your investment and keep your new Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge scratch-free and new-looking for as long as possible.
Even though Samsung have put in a lot of work to make the S6 sturdy (watch Samsung S6 and S6 Edge official drop test) it makes sense to invest in a good case as well. This is why today we will be sharing our selection of the 10 Best Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge cases you can buy on Amazon right now.
#1. Verus Heavy Drop Protection Samsung Galaxy S6 Case Thor Active
If you’re looking for protection, the Verus Thor Active case will provide plenty of it (though not military standard). Its edges prevent accidental drops and slips while the large corners (on the active model) absorb shocks if you happen to drop your Galaxy S6. If you find the active model too bulky you can also check out the regular, more sleeker version.
Both versions cost $18.99 and are available in a wide variety of colors for both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge.
#2. Caseology® Wavelength Series Samsung Galaxy S6 Case Shock Proof – True Grip
Next up we’re going to look at Caseology’s Wavelength Series Samsung Galaxy S6 case which doesn’t just look great but also provides shock absorption and excellent grip. At $13.99 this case looks sleek, solid and can work in a professional setting as well.
There are 5 different color schemes available and we recommend this case if you’re looking for a mix of protection and visual appeal.
#3. Caseology® Envoy Series Premium Samsung Galaxy S6 Case Carbon Fiber Black
Another gem from Caseology, this Envoy series premium Galaxy S6 Case is available at a discounted price of $14.99 right now and has 6 different color and material variations, including leather bound backs instead of the carbon fiber design shown in the preview image above.
You get basic protection with this case and it’s more of a bumper with a raised front lip to prevent your device from falling flat on its screen. However, this design and it’s variants are quite appealing and should make their way to your S6 cases collection.
#4. Spigen® Heavy Duty Tough Armor Case for Samsung Galaxy S6 Extreme Protection
Coming back to protection, how can we not have a Spigen case in our Galaxy S6 cases collection. This heavy duty case from Spigen offers air cushion technology to protect against drops and has a larger lip to protect the screen.
Spigen have also done a good job with the design, which looks contemporary, despite being bulky for extreme protection. The case is currently on sale at $16.99 and as a bonus you get the kickstand on the back to set up your Galaxy S6 on a flat surface and watch movies or videos.
#5. Spigen® Galaxy S6 Edge Premium Wallet Case with Stand
This excellent leather wallet case for the Galaxy S6 Edge is made by Spigen and will be available from April 14 onwards for $17.99. You don’t just get to keep your S6 Edge in style with this wallet case but also keep your money and cards in its built-in pockets.
Spigen has used premium leather for this case and your phone’s sides will be covered with polycarbonate edges for protection. The wallet case can also be bent around the back to prop up your S6 Edge for watching movies and videos. If you’re looking for a high quality professional looking case for your S6 Edge we recommend you go for this.
#6. Obliq Invisible Drop Protection Transparent Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Case
This beautifully clear and transparent case from Obliq allows you to show off your new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge in all its glory without risking scratches or damage. Made from clear, scratch-resistant polycarbonate, the case covers your S6 Edge’s back and sides while allowing you full view of the edges.
In order to prevent the case itself from getting scratches Obliq has also made small raised bumps on all four edges so you can put your phone down on a flat surface without stressing about it.
If you want a minimal, great looking yet inexpensive case for your S6 Edge, we recommend you get this one for $8.99.
#7. Ringke Fusion Dust & Drop Protection Case for Samsung Galaxy S6
If you liked the Obliq transparent case listed above, you’re going to like the Fusion Dust & Drop Protection case from Ringke as well. Apart from providing a clear cover for your Galaxy S6, it includes caps for the microphone and charging slots to protect your phone from dust.
Currently the case is down to $10.99 from its original price of $30.00 and is worth buying if you want a minimal, clear looking case with the ability to change back films for customization.
#8. Speck CandyShell Grip Case for Samsung Galaxy S6
No list can be complete without a Speck case, and this one provides military-grade drop proofing for the Galaxy S6. While Speck has made sure you won’t have to worry about dropping or damaging your phone accidentally, the case will set you back $34.95.
However, if you’re willing to invest into your S6 with a case that’s both protective and lively, you can try this one.

#9. Verus Card Slot Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Case
Another case by Verus, this one is like the Spigen heavy duty case listed earlier but also includes a card slot which can hold up to two IDs or credit cards.
Both top and bottom edges are raised on the front to provide protection against accidental drops while the overall build is tough and solid. The case is relatively expensive at $19.99 but is aimed at people who want a professional looking case with room for their most important cards.
