Samsung’s latest mid-range hero, the Galaxy A53 5G, was unveiled at last week’s Samsung event, and so far we’re impressed. This impressive A-series phone packs a 6.5-inch 120Hz Super AMOLED display, an Exynos 1280 chip, and 128GB of expandable storage for $450.
That’s still a significant amount of money to drop on a new handset, though, so you’ll want to invest in a protective case or cover to protect your new phone from life’s little mishaps. There are already some great options for the Galaxy A53, and we’ve picked out some of the best Samsung Galaxy A53 cases, from clear cases to more rugged choices. Your new case is on this list.
Ringke Fusion Matte Camouflage Case
Ringke’s two-piece case features a rugged polycarbonate shell with durable TPU bumpers. Add reinforced shock-absorbing corners and a raised bezel around the screen and camera, and it’s easy to see why this case meets military drop protection standards. Integrated ridges and a tactile, non-slip design reduce the chance of your phone dropping, while TPU-reinforced button covers are responsive and durable. The case has a special lining so it won’t scratch your phone and a transparent camo back so you can show off the Galaxy A53 design.
Spigen Ultra Hybrid Clear Case
Sometimes a clear case is just the ticket, especially when you’ve dropped $450 on one of the Galaxy A53’s more unusual peach or blue hues and want to show it off. This thin and light clear case from Spigen lets you do just that without compromising on protection either. It’s made from premium polycarbonate with Air Cushion technology in the corners, providing excellent drop protection, and is treated with a urethane coating that prevents yellowing over time. Raised bezels around the screen and camera also protect them from drops.
Caseology Athlex Case
The next case on our list features a sleek and ergonomic design while offering rugged protection with its dual-layer construction. Caseology’s Athlex case also has a built-in handle to keep your phone in your hand and contemporary contrasting accents to make the design stand out. This is a slim and form-fitting case for the Galaxy A53 that is also compatible with most screen protectors.
Ghostek Covert 6 Ultra Slim Case
Ghostek’s Covert 6 case features a transparent back to show off your Galaxy A53, with colored bumpers available in smoke, clear or pink options. This ultra-thin case meets military drop protection standards, protecting your phone from drops up to 8 feet. There’s also an antibacterial/antimicrobial coating on the case to repel germs, an anti-slip coating for extra grip, and reinforced corners and bumpers that protect the screen and camera if you drop your phone . For under $20, this is serious protection that also looks great.
Otterbox Commuter Series Lite Case
The Commuter Series is one of Otterbox’s more affordable ranges, but you still get the superior protection the brand is known for. This pocket-sized case features a dual-layer construction of polycarbonate and synthetic rubber, and Otterbox promises that it protects against twice as many drops as military-grade drop protection cases. There’s a raised bezel around the screen to keep it from landing if you drop your phone, and each case also comes with a limited lifetime warranty. You can use this case with most Otterbox screen protectors for 360 degree protection for your Galaxy A53. It’s available in Maven Way (a two-tone pink, pictured) or black.
Official Samsung S View Wallet Cover
Samsung’s S View case is a classic that’s not by far the cheapest option on our list, but well worth the extra investment. This wallet-style case clips onto the back of your phone and folds over the front to provide 360 degree protection. However, you don’t need to open the case to view your notifications or receive calls – the convenient open-view front cover makes it easy to check your phone’s time or battery life, as well than checking notifications or receiving calls. Inside there are pockets for cash, cards and ID, so you can leave your wallet at home.
UAG Scout Case
The Urban Armor Gear Scout Case is made from rugged TPU with a brushed metal insert featuring the UAG logo. This sleek, form-fitting case is lightweight but offers superior protection against drops, scratches and scrapes, with sturdy TPU buttons. It meets military drop test standards, so you can be sure your phone not only looks good, but is also protected against whatever your day throws at you.
LoveCases Gel Case
Forget about boring black cases – this gel case from LoveCases comes in three cool designs: white stars and moon, orange leopard print or pink heart. Because it’s a transparent case, you can still show off the design and color of your Galaxy A53 while adding a little fun to the proceedings. This ultra-thin case has a non-slip grip to help reduce the risk of dropping, with a raised bezel around the screen and camera to keep them secure. Thanks to its sleek profile, it is ideal for slipping into a pocket or bag.
Olixar Genuine Leather Wallet Case
Sometimes only a genuine leather wallet case will do, like this one from Olixar. Professional enough for the office, it’s crafted from soft grain genuine leather that will age beautifully, developing a patina over time that will ensure each case is unique. The premium feel is further enhanced by the stitched finish. Open the lid and you’ll find three card slots and a handy pocket for cash or documents. This case provides 360 degree protection for your Galaxy A53 and even folds into a convenient stand for viewing or video calling.
Official Samsung Silicone Case
The final case on our list is another official case from Samsung. This slim and sleek silicone case doesn’t add bulk to your phone, but provides a much-needed layer of protection against drops and scratches. It feels great in your hand, the non-slip silicone adds grip, and there’s a raised lip for extra screen protection. Choose it in black or match the color of your A53 with blue or peach options.
