Earlier this month, Samsung revealed the Galaxy A72, their latest midrange phone with some seriously high-end features. Although there’s no release date or price as yet for the U.S. market, it’s currently available in the U.K. from Samsung.
With its solid camera, large battery, and a gorgeous 6.7-inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate, it’s a phone you’re going to want to protect. Luckily, there are already some great cases available offering a combination of protection and style. Check out our picks for the best Samsung Galaxy A72 cases and covers, whether you prefer a clear case to show off your new Awesome Violet handset or a more rugged option.
We’ve also rounded up the best cases for the Samsung Galaxy A52, which was released earlier this month.
OtterBox React Ultra Slim Case
If you’re prone to dropping your phone — it happens to us all from time to time — then this ultra-slim case from OtterBox is the one for you. Constructed from slim but tough thermo polyurethane with a special coating to prevent discoloration, its form-fitting design encases your phone perfectly for up to 4 feet of drop protection. OtterBox tests its cases thoroughly, too — this one has been dropped 26 times from a height of 4 feet, so unless you’re the clumsiest person on the planet, your phone will stay safe no matter how many times it slips through your fingers. The soft, non-slip coating adds an additional level of protection, and the case is wireless charging compatible, too, so you won’t need to remove it when your battery needs a boost. It’s available in clear, black, or clear with a sea spray — vibrant blue-green — bumper.
Ringke Fusion-X Case
Another case that’s great for the butterfingers amongst us, Ringke’s Fusion-X case not only looks great, it also offers MIL-STD 810G – 516.6 Certified Military Grade Drop Protection for drops up to 4 feet. The clear polycarbonate shell shows off your phone’s design and color — perfect if you opted for an Awesome Blue or Awesome Violet handset — while raised TPU bumpers protect the screen from bumps and scratches. A raised bezel around the rear camera offers extra protection, and the bumpers have a grippy finish that further reduces the chances of it slipping through your fingers when you’re texting or browsing the web. For under $15, this is some serious protection.
Official Samsung Smart S View Wallet Case
You’ll pay a bit more for this official Samsung case, but if you’re after 360-degree protection for your device, it’s worth the extra. This wallet case clips onto the back of your device and folds over the front, providing all-around protection in a slim, form-fitting case. There are hidden pockets for your cards and ID — so you can leave your wallet at home — and you can view and manage notifications for incoming calls and messages, as well as the time and your phone’s battery life, without constantly opening and closing the case. The S View case is made from high-quality materials, so it may be the only case you’ll ever need for your Galaxy A72, and it comes in a choice of black or white.
Olixar Soft Silicone Case
Prefer a soft case for your phone? Step up Olixar’s silicone case with its soft-touch finish and flexible form, which provides excellent protection for your device. Made from a durable gel material, this case offers a slim fit, so it adds virtually no bulk, making it ideal if your preferred place to store your phone is in your pocket. A non-slip coating adds grip, keeping your phone firmly in your grasp, while a raised bezel around the screen keeps it safe from scratches. We love the deep midnight blue version, pictured, but this case also comes in a soft pink color.
Ghostek Iron Armor Holster Tough Case
Protection for your phone doesn’t come much more heavy-duty than this case from Ghostek. Its dual-layer construction and anti-slip grip ensure your phone stays firmly in hand, whether you’re on a video call or texting friends. You’re paying for military-grade protection here, with an impressive 12 feet of drop protection, which should mean your phone’s safe no matter what life throws at you. There’s a raised bezel around the rear camera, an adjustable kickstand for hands-free video calls or Netflix sessions, and a revolving swivel belt clip that’s ideal for taking your phone with you on even the most daring outdoor activities. There’s even a card slot that holds one credit card or your ID, so no need to bring your wallet. It’s not the cheapest case on our list, but with this one, you really do get what you pay for: Seriously rugged protection.
LoveCases White Stars and Moon Clear Case
This clear case boasts a fun white star and moon design, although you could choose one of the other colorful designs available, too, like leopard print. Its clear, flexible construction lets you show off your new Galaxy A72 while its ultra-slim profile adds virtually no bulk to your phone, making it ideal for slinging in your pocket. This case doesn’t skimp on protection, though, with a non-slip coating and raised bezels around the screen and camera to keep dirt out and prevent scratches. These cases work with the Lovecases PopSockets 2-in-1 Stand and Grip too, with a range of matching designs to choose from. As far as cute cases go, it’s up there with the best, but you can rest safe in the knowledge it’s keeping your phone safe too.
