Samsung Galaxy S21 and S21 Plus in stunning colors give a new look to the Galaxy flagships. Nothing beats the elegance and gravity of a leather case guarding a premium phone. A leather case for your Samsung Galaxy S21 or Galaxy S21 Plus will protect it from scuff marks or scratches and shield it from minor bumps and drops.
So, if you are in the market for some cool leather cases for your Galaxy S21 (or Galaxy S21 Plus) phone, here are our recommendations. But first,
The Samsung Galaxy S21 5G Leather Cover will be the perfect fit if you do not mind paying a premium price. Before you think of it as an old-school wallet case, let me stop you right there. It's similar to most bumper cases. Instead of the typical silicon back, the case is layered with leather. The slighter above-average pricing means you get your hands on genuine leather. Here, the camera module is surrounded by leather.
The thing worth considering about this leather case is its texture. Apart from lending elegance to the case, it also helps you grip the phone better. Also, the case is strong enough to protect the phone from minor scratches and scuffs. But then again, do note that leather is prone to cuts if you are not too careful with your Galaxy S21.
Since it's an in-house case, you are likely to get a snug fit with precise holes and cuts. In short, if you want to add flair to your smartphone, this protective case fits the bills perfectly.
If you lean towards wallet cases because of the all-around protection they offer, you can have a peek at the Olixar Wallet Case. Though it may not cost as much as the one above, it leans on the pricier side than its peers. It's made of genuine leather and comes with usual bells and whistles associated with leather cases. For instance, there are a couple of built-in card slots.
The magnetic clasp ensures that the cover won't open on its own. The only limitation that this case offers is that you won't see the notifications right away (like the Smart Clear View cover), and you will have to open the cover to view them.
Aside from the above, the phone is held together by a case. Do note that it's not a full bumper case and the lower portion stays exposed. On the bright side, you get direct access to the power button and the volume rockers without anything getting in your way.
The Olixar Wallet Case is available both for the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Plus.
The Banzoc case bears a similar look to the stock Samsung leather case. However, this one is an affordable bumper case, where the rear has a leather texture while the sides are made of TPU. The latter ensures a firm grip, while the leather brings a touch of elegance. In short, you get the best of both worlds.
This case's leather has a light texture. It's available in four colors, and the Red variant looks quite rad. Banzoc claims that the leather used is genuine.
Aside from the above, it bundles raised lips running along the camera module's sides and the screen, protecting the displays from scratches. The bumper is soft, which ensures easy installation. Plus, the corners are reinforced to bear the impact of drops and falls.
The Banzoc Premium Leather Case is available both for the Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21.
Salawat's leather case bears a similar look to the one above for Galaxy S21. This one brings a more antique look to the table. As noted earlier, the design is mostly similar. A TPU bumper flanks the sides of the phone, which does the double duty of shielding it from accidental bumps and adds a better grip. The case doesn't cover the camera module. However, you'll find raised lips along the edges.
The buttons are covered, which acts as a defense mechanism against dust and lint from entering the case. Moreover, it doesn't add much bulk to the overall form factor and maintains a sleek profile. However, the low price point means you will have to give up some features, and in this, it's the quality of leather. Yep, this one is made from PU leather.
The Salawat Leather Vintage Phone Case is available in three colors—Blue, Brown, and Black.
The FYY case is a traditional wallet case and is super affordable. It brings the usual features like dedicated slots for bills and credit cards. One of the points where it differs from the Olixar leather case is that you get a traditional button enclosure at the side. While it ensures that the case remains closed, it tends to bring down the look by a little.
Nevertheless, the closed design means you can fold the lid and prop up the phone to watch movies and videos hands-free. The case is made from PU leather and while the texture isn't pronounced, that's the price you have to pay for the low price tag.
It goes without a doubt that leather phone cases add elegance and style to the phones. If you plan to go for premium leather, do note that they do need a little more care than your regular silicon case. For example, they do not play well with chemicals and perfume. And regular contact with such substances may cause the leather to stain. Ideally, one must regularly wipe the case with a clean cloth to keep the case free from dust and moisture.
So, which of these leather cases will you buy for your Samsung Galaxy S21?
