It may be the most expensive device in the A-series — although flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S21 still cost a lot more — but the Samsung A71 5G packs a lot of punch for the price. With its 6.7-inch AMOLED full HD+ screen and 4,500mAh battery, you’ll want to keep this $600 smartphone safe, if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on one. A sturdy case is a must — but should you opt for a clear TPU case or a sleek leather wallet cover? We’ve hand-picked a selection of some of the best Samsung Galaxy A71 5G cases around to help you decide.
Note: These cases are designed to fit the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G model, and are not compatible with the Samsung Galaxy A71 4G.
Poetic Guardian Case
Want to keep your A71 5G safe while showing it off at the same time? Poetic’s Guardian case ticks both boxes, with a scratch-resistant clear polycarbonate back that showcases your phone and raised bumpers with impact-resistant TPU lining. With this case you’re getting rugged, military-grade drop protection — a raised bezel provides extra protection for your screen should you drop your phone, while the textured bumpers add grip and prevent your phone sliding through your fingers. Poetic has included an extra front frame too, which you can use with your own tempered glass screen protector for 360-degree protection. The Guardian case comes in black, black and blue, black and green, or silver and pink, all with a clear back to show off your A71 5G.
We love the deep berry-colored version of Kwmobile’s TPU case — although you can also pick it up in black, lilac, or yellow — but it’s more than just a good-looking case. The super slim design slips neatly into your pocket, while the TPU construction absorbs shock, keeping your phone safe from drops, bumps, and scratches. It’s soft and flexible and feels smooth in your hand — and as an added bonus the material adds grip, too, making it less likely you’ll drop your phone in the first place. Unlike some other flexible covers, this one fits the A71 5G perfectly and won’t stretch or become loose over time. For under $10 it’s a great buy.
The official Samsung S View case costs more than some of the others on our list, but it’s worth every penny if you’re looking for top-notch protection for your phone. Right now, you can pick it up in white from Samsung. The best bit about this case? All-round protection for your phone and easy access to its functions without opening the cover — so no more flipping your case open and closed constantly. Thanks to the clear-view front cover, you can see the time and date as well as view and manage incoming calls and messages.
OtterBox is a brand you can trust for protective cases, and their Symmetry Series Clear Case is the ideal choice if you want to keep your A71 5G safe while showing off that gorgeous design. This clear polycarbonate case offers slim yet durable protection for your phone against drops and bumps, with a beveled edge that helps protect the screen. All OtterBox cases include a limited lifetime warranty too.
Sometimes you need tough, rugged protection for your phone — like when you’re traveling or working in an industrial environment. Step up the Olixar Armourdillo, which, as its name suggests, offers solid protection for your phone against whatever life throws at it. This dual-layered case has a lightweight TPU polymer inner and hard, impact-resistant polycarbonate exoskeleton outer. The exoskeleton adds additional protection for your phone’s sides and corners and features a pull-out kickstand for hands-free reading, video calls, or movie viewing. With cutouts for all the A71’s ports and tactile button covers, this case also has a textured grid finish that gives superior grip, minimizing the risk of drops.
The suede-like Kowauri PU leather wallet case is a nice change from the typical leather cases. This soft-feeling case comes in six different colors, so it will suit any style. We love the beautiful petrol blue in the picture, but you can get one of these cases in pink, coffee, black, red wine, or brown. There’s more than just looks on offer here though, with all-round protection for your phone. Its tough interior shell keeps your phone snugly in place with a magnetic clasp to prevent the phone from getting scratched in your bag or pocket. This case comes with an ID or cash pocket and two slots for cards, so you can leave your wallet at home. It also folds into an adjustable stand for a hands-free Netflix session or Zoom call.
Osophter’s transparent floral print case gives your phone a little extra personality while showcasing the A72 5G style. This case consists of polycarbonate and shock-absorbent, shatterproof TPU with additional cushioning at the corners of the phone. It’s available in six vibrant designs, such as the rose-pink case pictured.
All leather wallet cases are a little different, and this CoverOn case is one of the best we’ve seen. For one thing, it’s made of ethical vegan faux leather and comes in three colors and two patterns. This stunning case comes with six slots for cards, a transparent ID window, and a vast cash pocket. But more than that, it’s lined with an RFID-blocking substance to protect you from card theft. Its shock-resistant TPU interior keeps your phone safe from bumps and drops, and a magnetic clasp keeps everything inside protected. Once you open it, it folds into a convenient stand for no-hands activities like reading, gaming, and watching movies.
