Looks like no one has ordered the case I’ve decided to go with, so I’ll post a small review after I use it. I ordered the Case-Mate case in Iridescent Swirl.

My personal phone is an iPhone 12 Pro Max and I’m using the official Apple leather case; it’s leagues ahead of every/any case I’ve ever used for any phone. Particularly, the button tactility makes the case near perfect and a joy to use. The S21 Ultra will be a business phone so I’m looking for something that’ll at least compare in terms of quality to the Apple leather case.

Finding a case similar in quality means looking at Samsung and their official leather case, so I’ll order one when the preorder credit kicks in. But the Case-Mate case looks great (love the finish!) and it looks like it has excellent button tactility. Hopefully it’s worth its $40 price tag.

i used my 260$ credit to get the u21 ultra "case with spen", i also order the spen separately.
now i have 2 spen. samsung should be more clear on their description. i thought case with spen means case with spen slot.

anyone know any aftermarket case with spen slot?
samsung black case with spen slot is getting boring.

Went with official samsung leather case in black, love the camera protection and leather should feel epic in hand compared to all plastic, ruberry cases. Next will be UAG Monarch in carbon fiber, but i need to import it or wait till it be available here, also interested in pitaka magnetic cases, now I use a plate beneath the case and it gets hot when wireless charging dunno if it's bad for the phone, heat is never good.

I've got Samsung Leather Cover

Pros:
- cool look
- the phone is very firmly attached to it
- does not enlarge the dimensions of the phone too much
- protects the island with cameras well

Cons:
- it doesn't stick out too much from the screen side, so it's a bit dangerous to put the screen down
- skin prone to scratching (damage)
- the phone sways a little when you put its back down
- it's hard to take it off the phone, I'm afraid that I will damage it when I will try to remove the phone from it
- it holds in the hand on average, but still a bit better than a bare phone

Tomorrow will try Ringke Onyx.

Thanks for this report. What has concerned me about this case, from reports here and on Amazon and Best Buy reviews is the durability. You say "skin prone to scratching...". You are seeing this already or understand that it will, with time, show wear/damage?

I use it only the second day, so it's hard to say, I try to take care and do not expose the case too much in case I want to return it to the seller (EU law, up to 14 days from buying). However, it seems to me that it will wear out quickly when you don't care where you put your phone.

    Hello all,
    as promised, here are my thoughts on the cases I got and that I have not seen talked about here yet.
    So today I received the "Rhinoshield Solid Suit".
    Looks - I like it. It's quite simple and elegant. I chose the carbon style. To me, it is what I look for in cases.
    Fit - Really good, the case is really snug on there and will not move. You have to really want the phone out.
    The ports work well with all the cables I could try.
    Protection - I feel confident that it offers a good protection. It's very thick (a bit much maybe, makes a huge phone really huge :D). There are raised lips on top and bottom, but they are on even level to the center of the screen on the sides. The camera array is well protected, and now the phone won't wobble so much when put on its back. A good plus in my book.
    Feel - This is where I would say this is a good case, but not great. The plastic on the sides is actually quite hard and does not offer the good grip of more soft plastics. The buttons are very tactile, but don't click too loudly, so a good plus there. Also, the carbon part is quite soft, it has a good texture, that does not catch fingerprints, but I'm unsure if it's a sticker?

    Overall - Good case, good protection and feel. But it's not so grippy, so minus points here. Probably a bit expensive and middle of the road in my opinion!

    See pictures attached.
