I agree that the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus are too beautiful to keep them under thick covers aka cases. But at the same time, even a tiny scratch on them break our hearts. Maybe that’s one of the reasons that Samsung has bundled a transparent case with it.
While transparent cases let the original look of the phone to shine through, they don’t have the rich looks that the leather accentuates. On top of it, most leather cases are super convenient to carry since they can also double up as wallets.
So, if you are seeking leather cases for the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus, here are a few that you should certainly buy.
One of the key advantages of the Amovo leather case is that you can effortlessly detach it from the wallet. That is helpful when you want to leave out the bulk of the purse on some occasions. Or when you want to place it on your wireless charger to recharge — yes, the case supports it and you won't have to remove it.
The good thing about the case is it looks premium and does equal justice to the $899 (or $1000) phone. At the same time, the detached case also looks quite decent. It’s worth noting that it comes with corner protections to absorb the shocks in cases of accidental falls.
Reviews for the Amovo case for the Galaxy S10 looks quite promising, with many reviewers praising its snug fit, strong magnets, and its overall quality.
Another wallet case which you can consider is the Maxboost mWallet Series. It is a well-built case packing three card slots and a side pocket for holding your cash. Quite naturally this case bundles a set of strong magnets to keep the flap closed when not in use. Also, you can always prop it up for a hands-free movie experience.
Out of 40 reviews, 85% are positive and speak of its snug fit and the premium quality. The card slots are not just a bunch of slits on the leather. These holders can house most cards nicely.
Cramming a bunch of cards into the case will most likely give it a bulky look, so you might want to go easy there.
The Maxboost mWallet Series for Galaxy S10 costs $10.95 and carries the Amazon’s Choice tag. This case's design also accommodates lanyard holes.
Are you looking for a handcrafted leather case? If yes, your search ends with the FYY Wallet Case. FYY claims that this case is made using genuine leather. As far as the looks and fit are concerned, they are pretty much up to the mark.
The makers of the case paid attention to the details. The inside of the case is lined with a soft material to prevent scratches on the phone. You can wirelessly charge your phone without removing the case.
The FYY Luxury Case retails at $24.95 and is available in many colors including Blue, Black, Green, and Blue.
If wallet cases are not your thing, you should go for a leather backed case. And while you are at it, you can take a look at the case by Tendlin. It is a PU leather case that not only maintains the slim profile of your phone but also gives it a great look.
Typical of most cases, this too has its buttons covered, and the raised lips keep the screen protected when the phone is kept face down.
For $11.88, it would somehow be wrong to expect the smoothness or softness of genuine leather. However, if you don’t have much liking for thick wallet cases, this is an apt alternative.
The Salawat case for the Galaxy S10/S10 Plus is a faux leather case that replicates the look and feel of genuine leather. It sports a dual look wherein the rear is made from PU leather, and the sides consist of soft TPU material. It's worth noting that the top and the bottom TPU lips keep the edges shielded from dings and scratches.
It’s a tad early for reviews since the phone's debut is still quite fresh. However, the ones so far have been good, with the users appreciating the build of the case.
The Salawat PU Leather Case retails at $10.99 and is available in many colors including Blue, Black, and Dark Brown.
Last but not least, we have the official leather cases from Samsung. Available in a variety of eye-popping colors, these help in transforming the look of the phone. And at the same time, the textured back helps to grip the phone better.
This one is for those who not only want to maintain the slim profile of the S10. The good thing about official cases is that they fit snugly and the button responses are usually great. In short, you wouldn’t feel the button response getting lost between you and the phone.
On the downside, you won’t find any raised lips on the edges, owing to the Infinity Display. However, you can rest assured that the top and the bottom edges have a tiny amount of raised lips.
The official leather case retails for a whopping $49.99.
