The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is a gorgeous but delicate phone. Its exterior is slippery and is prone to scratches. Even sliding into pockets and pulling it out might damage it. So it's best to put a case or cover on it. That'll keep it in a pristine condition and also save it from unwanted bumps or drops.
So, if you have bought the Galaxy Z Flip 3 (or planning to buy one), here are our recommendations for the best covers and cases.
The Foluu case brings a leather look to the table. It's made from a mix of PU and synthetic leather. While the former cushions the effects of bumps and drops and lends a grippy touch, the latter brings an elegant look to the table.
For the price, it looks good. The area near the volume rockers and the fingerprint sensor has a stylish but. While this design lets you access the buttons easily, it leaves the phone a little vulnerable.
The maker claims that the leather is scratch-resistant, though we would take that with a pinch of salt. That said, it's slim and light and doesn't add much bulk to the overall weight of the phone.
If you want to flaunt the original color of your Galaxy Z Flip 3, the Milomdoi clear case is a good pick. It's a hardback case and beautifully wraps around the phone and doesn't slip. The cuts are on point, and like the one above, the fingerprint sensor and the volume rockers are easily accessible.
There is no hinge protection. On the upside, the hard case should protect against minor falls and bumps against door frames. Plus, the matte surface gives you the necessary grip, which is otherwise missing in the phone.
One of the first things that you will notice about the Ringke phone case is that it wraps around the phone and covers the volume rockers. The edges around the fingerprint sensor are stylishly cut to make it easy to access. At the same time, the cuts for the charging port and the mic are accurate, and quite a few users have backed this claim.
It's slim, durable, and duly wraps around the phone. However, some users have reported the top case coming off when the top half lifts the phone. That said, it has received favorable reviews from its users so far—people like it for its sturdiness and value-for-money proposition.
Another case that won't add much heft to the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is the Spigen Thin Fit. It's slim and preserves the original form factor of the phone. Also, it fits the phone like a glove and snaps onto both sides seamlessly. It doesn't have hinge protection.
The grip is superior, thanks to the matte finish on the exterior. The Spigen Thin Fit case comes with covered buttons, but the good thing is that the buttons have tactile feedback. The only issue is the fingerprint sensor. Since the cover adds a little heft, the fingerprint sensor recedes a little, which makes it a little difficult to press.
The Spigen Thin Fit for the Z Flip 3 is not perfect, but it gets the job done brilliantly by protecting it from minor scratches and scuff marks.
If you are looking for hinge protection and do not mind adding bulk to your phone, you can check out the Spigen Tough Armor.
How does the idea of a keyring on your phone sound to you? If you are excited, you should check out Samsung's silicone case. Here, the strap and the ring juts out from the hinge. So that when the phone is closed, you can slide your fingers through the ring and hold on to it. Sounds cool, right?
Apart from adding to the security of the device this ring also helps to give a unique look to the phone. This silicone of the case ups the grip of the phone. Plus, it deflects bumps and scratches.
The buttons are covered, whereas there's a slight cut for the fingerprint sensor. Since it's an in-house case, you don't have to worry about the fit. It fits perfectly and doesn't slide off the phone, and that's a huge plus.
Another case that preserves the original look of the phone is the Otterbox Thin Flex case. This one is made from a mixture of PC and synthetic rubber and increases the grip on the phone by a few degrees. More importantly, this one has drop protection and is rated at Drop+.
It's a dual case and doesn't have hinge protection. Also, unlike the Samsung and the Ringke case, the buttons are not covered. Instead, the case has a cut over the buttons and the fingerprint sensor. As we noted above, the cut leaves the phone bumpers a little vulnerable.
If you want to give a unique look to your flip phone, you should have a look at the Civilian Series from UAG. This one is a rugged case and will add a bit of heft to your phone. But on the upside, it will protect the delicate phone from regular wear and tear.
The armored case is designed to absorb the brunt of bumps and drops. Here too, the volume rockers are covered.
Like the Otterbox case is a little expensive but offers good protection. Out of the little reviews it has received till now, the Civilian case for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 has earned good praises for its resilient build.

Flip It All the Way
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is one of the unique phones, but the uniqueness also brings a little delicateness. Though a case or a cover aids in a better grip and prevents scratches and dings, it's not 100% efficient.
Most of these cases leave the hinge and the screen vulnerable (in the absence of raised lips around the edges). Hence, you'll need to be careful when you are handling the phone.
