The 16 Best Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Cases

By Jack Tomlin on at

Don't live a life of phone-protecting panic, as there is a great range of accessories to wrap up your little metal-and-plastic baby to keep it as clean and scratch-free as the day that it came out of its fresh-smelling factory box. Check out this lot, Galaxy lovers!

GEAR4 IceBox Shock

Here's a snazzy case from GEAR4 for the S6. The outer rim of the IceBox is injected with D3O – the whizzy putty-like material that provides awesome shock protection for drops, used by the military and Olympic ski teams alike. A transparent back lets the Galaxy S6's posterior shine through too. [Buy from Carphone Warehouse for £29.99]

Spigen Ultra Rugged Capsule

With a composition of strong TPU the Spigen rugged case is designed to give lots of protection to the Galaxy S6 while not giving anything up in thickness, keeping the design as slim as possible. [Buy from MobileFun for £14.99]

Taken Wallet Case

Looking like any other flip wallet case, and offering up the same functionality with its magnetic buckle and credit card slots, this case by Taken (nothing to do with Liam Neeson and his very particular set of skills) has an important skill of its own: waterproofing. The exterior is formed of special Litchi grain oil leather that, as shown in the pic above, repels liquid. Great for rainy Britain and clumsy pub-drinkers. [Buy the Taken leather flip case for £16.99]

Official Samsung View Case

We are checking in with Sammy itself for our first stop on the S6 case express, with the View official premium cover case as our cabin mate. The low-profile, synthetic leather design has a handy opening, as are becoming commonplace in phone cases, which reveals incoming calls, texts and emails. It is also available in gold, white, blue, orange, and yellow. [Buy the official Samsung S6 View Premium case]

Encase Wallet

A more affordable option to the previous case is this Encase leather-style wallet, which is lacking in the window department but has credit card slots to make it a more all-round pocket solution. A nicely understated accessory for your Galaxy S6. Also available in brown. [Buy the Encase wallet for £12.99]

Official Samsung Clear Cover

A second stop with Samsung for this official clear cover, which is definitely one for those who want to show off the natural colour and design of the S6. The corner bumpers and tracking edge of the case bring a subtle colour to accessory, with gold and silver options as alternatives. [Buy the official Samsung Galaxy S6 clear case for £24.99]

Poetic Affinity

You're not alone if you feel the need for more protection when it comes to shrouding your phone: they are not cheap so more protection is well worth it. Poetic offers up this case as part of its Affinity series, which features rugged thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) bumpers to take the shock out of a potential fall. Also available in gold and grey. [Buy the Poetic Affinity bumper case for £7.95]

Olixar ArmourLite

A pretty little red number from Olixar here, with the company's ArmourLite range in question. The design provides great protection against scrapes and drops, with the star of the show being the all-round protective bumper. Also available in black, gold, white or blue. [Buy the Olixar ArmourLite for £14.99]

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Cases

Verus Damda Slide 

Hard protective shell? Check. Rubberised bumper edges? Check? Easy access to ports? Check. All seems pretty normal with Verus's Damda case until you spy the secret panel in the back, which slides off to reveal a compartment for holding slim bags of powder up to two credit cards or ID, a neat design that is patented by Verus. Four colours available. [Buy the Verus Damda for £19.99] Mofred Black Leather Case Here's a nice and simple real-leather fold-over case for the S6 Edge, which keeps the extra screen real-estate peeking out when the cover is closed. It has a built in magnet to make sure it stays closed, but is just the right strength to be able to flip open easily. Great price right now, too. [Buy the Mofred Black Leather Case for £2.59]

Official Samsung Clear View Cover

This one is certainly on the pricier side but it is arguably worth it when you know you have the real deal official accessory. The Clear View cover completely encases the S6 Edge, but is transparent enough to be able to see notifications and other details from the phone while the cover is on. Four colours shown available. [Buy the Samsung Clear View Cover for £29.99]

Dbrand Carbon Fibre Skin

If you are pretty confident that you won't need a whole lot of protection for your Galaxy S6 Edge, but still want to jazz up the outside to suit your tastes, then this sleek carbon-fibre-look skin is a suitable solution. It applies easily to outside of the phone and instantly gives your phone some va va voom. [Buy the Dbrand Carbon Fibre skin for £14.99]

Official Samsung Flip Wallet

It's not a surprise that this is our third official accessory on the list so far: while the device is so new, quality third-party options are not in abundance, but Samsung itself has definitely made some lovely accessories for the S6 and S6 Edge, like this flip wallet option, which is also available in blue/black, gold, white, yellow and green. [Buy the Samsung Flip Wallet Cover for £24.99]

Spigen Crystal Clear Cushion

Spigen is a great brand for phone cases, and this Crystal Clear Cushion model for the S6 Edge carries on that tradition. Much effort has been put into making the bumper that surrounds the phone as effective as possible, bringing home a nice slice of peace of mind, while showing off the lovely-looking S6 Edge through the 'Crystal Clear' plastic. [Buy the Spigen Crystal Cushion for £7.99]

Spigen Bumper Case

Another visit from Spigen, this time with a more directed design towards a premium, 'grown-up'-looking case, which has a choice of champagne gold (shown), silver or gunmetal trim. This thing has all the looks, while being made of strong materials to make it more than just a pretty face. [Buy the Spigen Bumper case for £19.99]

Olixcar Polycarbonate Shell Case

Keep thing simple with your Galaxy S6 Edge case, with Olixar's neat, see-through shell that clips perfectly onto the phone, letting the lovely design of the phone shine through. [Buy the Olixar Polycarbonate Shell Case for £6.99]

Zenus Metallic Diary Case

Really nice case design from Zenus here, which has a handy opening for the Galaxy S6 Edge's side-bar screen. It is made of a combination of high-quality faux-leather and polyurethane, for good looks and good protection. Five colour options available, with free delivery available from the States. [Buy the Zenus Metallic Diary Case for around £13.90]
