Buying a new Samsung Galaxy S6 can be expensive. Between the actual cost of the phone, the cost of a new wireless charging pad, and any other little accessories you need, your bank account might look pretty empty on launch day. Thankfully, there are plenty of study S6 cases on the market that won’t break the bank. If you need a cheap S6 case, you’ve come to the right place. While prices are subject to change over time, every S6 case on this list was on sale for less than $10 at the time of publication. In fact, a few of them cost less than $5. Whether you need a cheap case that’s built to last, or a cheap case that will act as a placeholder until the case you really want hits stores in a couple of months, a cheap case can actually be a smart investment. Read on to see ten great options for S6 owners who need a cheap case.
1. Yousave Accessories Super Slim Clear Samsung Galaxy S6 Case
Clear cases are great for S6 owners who like the minimalist look. This transparent case is slim, lightweight, and perfect for people who like to show off the lines of their phone. For people who despise bulky cases, the barely-there texture of this ultra-slim case will be perfect.
When you factor in the included extras like a microfiber cleaning cloth and a film screen protector, this good deal becomes truly great. This is a solid choice for people who like minimalist cases. It will also work nicely as a temporary case for people who are holding out for a specific S6 case that won’t be out for a few more months.
It doesn’t get much cheaper than this. The Ionic BELLA case for the S6 is dirt cheap, but it’s also built tough. There are two layers of protection: a soft, inner core, which is paired with a hard outer shell. There are several color combinations to choose from. If you like simple, thin cases, this inexpensive case should fit the bill.
If you’re one of those people who likes to swap out your case frequently, you’ll be intrigued by the Terrapin Slim Fit S6 case. This line of lightweight cases is available in a huge assortment of colors, including black, yellow, grey, pink, purple, brick red, and baby blue. The smooth surface finish on these cases is designed to make the phone easy to remove from your pocket. The texture of the case has also been constructed so that it won’t accumulate lint or grime over time.
These colorful cases are a nice choice for people who are disappointed with the small selection of available S6 colors on launch day. Plus, they’re cheap enough that you can buy two or three different colors without putting much of a dent in your checking account.
Need an S6 case with a built-in kickstand? This inexpensive option is ideal for people who like to watch movies at their desk, or for those who need to do video chatting on a regular basis. We like the kickstand on this case because of its placement. Unlike many other kickstand cases, the “leg” on this one is centrally-located, rather than being placed on the top of bottom of the case.
The pink version pictured above is cute, but the grey version of this case is especially eye-catching. Red and purple variants are also available.
Need a case that’s feminine, or just a bit more classy than your average case? This hard plastic case features a frosted back with soft-rubberized design printed on top.
This elegant damask pattern is also available in black, white, turquoise, hot pink, and purple. There are lots of color options to choose from, and it’s easy to find a case color that will complement the color of your S6. This case does not ship with a screen protector, but it does come with a microfiber cleaning cloth.
This cheap case consists of a polycarbonate skeleton, topped with a silicone skin. This design has chosen to help absorb any impacts your phone might suffer during everyday use. Precise cutouts make it easy to access your phone’s charging port and other features, without the hassle of having to remove the case.
This case offers a “perfect fit” for your new S6. There are lots of color options to choose from, including a rather unique shade of brown they refer to as “copper”. If you like slim cases that feel like they’re barely there, this smooth case is a solid choice. The case is made from hard polyurethane material, with a urethane top-coating to prevent fading over time. That will help to ensure that the bright colors on these cases last for longer than a few months.
For some people, priority number one is a case that offers serious, rugged protection. But for other people, the most important feature of a smartphone case is the way it looks. If you fall into the latter category, this cool S6 case is a nice choice. In addition to the zig zag pattern pictured above, you can get this case with other interesting designs like paisley, foxes, hearts, or penguins. If you use your phone cases as an outlet for your personality, these designs will appeal to you.
Another cheap case that’s available in a ton of different color options, this S6 case from TOTU offers a blend of two different colors in every case. A raised front lip protects your screen while you place it face-down on a table. This case is designed with air cushion technology to prevent damage in the event that you drop your phone from a short distance.
The wide selection of feature-heavy portable Bluetooth speakers has made it much easier to enjoy music on the go, but it's also made it much more difficult to find the right portable speakers for the right price. That’s why Heavy has compiled a power list of the top 10 best sounding Bluetooth speakers across all price ranges.
10. SPARIN Drop Protection Ultra Slim Samsung Galaxy S6 Case
The last offering on our list is this solid case from SPARIN. It’s slim, but still engineered to be rugged enough to stand up to small drops and minor scrapes. While the color options are somewhat limited, this is still an attractive case that will appeal to a wide variety of people. Plus, that low price is a nice added perk. However, this S6 case does not ship with a film screen protector or a microfiber cleaning cloth.
