Default Galaxy Tab Case Recommendations

First off I have to say I love my Galaxy Tab, it's utterly brilliant. That being said I want to take it with me when I travel, but I don't want to do so until I get a decent case. I was wondering if anyone here has a particular case that they are using that they can recommend. I am looking for something that folds closed like a book, so as to protect the screen when I put it in my messenger bag. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

This one looks really nice but it's pricey.

Yeah, many of the Nook and Kindle cases fit the Tab perfectly... and there's a wide selection of them.

THe Nook, Kindle and Galaxy Tab are almost the exact same size. I was surprised when I held them all together. This is a definite plus for us as we have that much more accessories available for us

I bought one of this. You can use it as case or as bag. Quality is great and just 29 bucks. Perfect for me. (I'm one of those who carry their tab with them all the time as their phone :P )

For about £5 from Amazon: DURAGADGET carry case for the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Snug fit, with an extra pocket for spare cards etc.

Its pretty inovative with the way the front cover bends in 45 degree angles to allow it to lay back in landscape mode. I also like the style of portrait mode since its the closest thing to holding it bare. I will probably buy this one too. I currently have a VZW pouch style and im affraid of droping it everytime i remove it.

Default Case

Thanks for all the replies. I bought a folding case from the Verizon store and it was pretty crappy. The case just felt, cheap, the flaps we flimsy and the opening for the screen was too small, I was constantly having to push the tablet further into the case so I wasn't blocking the screen.

But I found a replacement one that so far I love! The SGA50GB by Platinum
Platinum Series - Folio Case for Samsung P1000 Tablet - Black - SGA50GB

This case is very solid, and durable, the front cover magnatically clasps to keep it closed, and overall it just looks and feels great. The only issue I have had so far is that I have to adjust the tablet in the case in order to get the dock connector to fit all the way. I may just end up snipping the bottom strap to fix this.

Love the look of that Bestbuy Platinum Folio case, thanks for posting about it.

Too bad it looks like Bestbuy Canada does not sell them.

A member was kind enough to try and get me one looking forward to it

I recently bought this agenda style case at a Samsung only store in Muscat, Oman while i was there on holiday.









I guess it will be available worldwide soon. Its a good one, real leather, feels really solid. The best part is that i paid only 9,- Omani Rial, that's only $22,- or €18,-.

You slide the tab into a frame. The frame is plastic i think, but could be metal also. The frame is covered in soft (probably fake) leather. This material also prevents it sliding out, works very well i have to say. No risk damaging your device.

I'm sorry, I usually don't get so excited about things like this, but I absolutely love the Otterbox case. You can only get it through Verizon right now, Otterbox won't sell it till Verizon lets them, but it is amazing. Best money I ever spent.

Default MobileVations/mobilvations galaxy tab cases

I have found these cases on Amazon and eBay. They come in different colors. I bought the black one and recently received it. It is quite nice, it is definitely firm but also flexible, much nicer than my phone case which is regular silicone. I would recommend checking them out if you still haven't gotten one. hope this helps

By the way, I hated my otterbox commuter for my blackberry storm. It was bulky and the inside silicone case stretched out and made it hard to press my screen.

This one is perfect. This looks identical to the zenus cases with exception of the clasp. Zenus has the magnetic and this is snap. However, I do like this color combo. Would you happen to have the product name /model so that I could start inquiring with local shops here in US. I also know someone overseas that could pick this up for me if I could provide him the exact item number.

Ask him to obtain as much information as possible. It looks a cracking good case which I for one would love to obtain.

I have a dream... A galaxy tab case where the tab is completely functional without taking it out (in other words, gaps/openings for the screens and buttons), and a kickstand, and a pouch on the back just large enough for a phone with a 4.3" screen.

You could probably take the one I posted above and have an upolstery shop sew a cell phone pocket to the back... otherwise it meets all of your dreams.

It took a while, but my friend went to the shop where i bought the case. He lives in Dubai and only visits Muscat every other week or so.

.. So he went to the samsung shop to ask for the item number, but they didn't know... The packaging only says Samsung Galaxy Tab and a barcode. It looks like i bought a prerelease version or something like that, because the clerk couldn't find it in his computer system anymore.
Sorry i couldn't be of any more help..
Maybe it'll show up in a store somewhere again. In the mean time i'm pretty happy with my case!

Here's a link worth checking out....

I have the Scosche case from T-Mobile. It's the third one reviewed in the above link. It's an outstanding case in every respect.

I have the Sprint case and it's OK. What I would really like is something that protects the screen when closed and has a fold out bluetooth keyboard in it. I use mine in meetings to take notes but sometimes I can't keep up.

I'm still searching for the perfect case. In the meantime I picked up the quick and cheap ereader pouch. Fits the Tab great. Got it at Walmart for $14.

I did a double take on the one that stands up the Tab in the portrait mode but then automatically realized you won't be able to charge it standing up like that. Just a thought.

I picked this one up when I bought mine, from Verizon.

Scosche Release Cases for Galaxy Tab | GottaBeMobile

The one that they have at the Verizon store. Just like this.



I also picked up the Siig Ipad windshield mount from Fry's electronics too. It's not just for the Ipad and works on the Tab. Problem is, I have to take it out of this case before using it. So day to day is out, but long trips it is ideal.

Try Noreve. High Quality leatehr cases. The Tab fits in with nothing covering the sides of the screen. Totally reccomend this case. Expensive but worth it.

Yes, I recommended this case to another member today.
What I like about this case is it holds the Tab firmly in place by clicking it into the case as opposed to sliding it in.
The benefit of this is
A. It is easier to insert/take out.
B. It does not restrict the screen.

You also get small credit card holders and a large flap to store papers or money.

If you order direct from Noreve you can then customize the case's leather and colour.

Wink case for galaxy tab

I am in the UK and have a galaxy tab, I bought a samsung case that makes into a stand, it is good however I ordered another bag/case from Fabric & Handle in Thailand, the case is perfect for me, it provides protection if the tab is put in a bag, can be fixed to your waist or over your shoulder using the 2 supplied straps. The only fixing it does not appear to do is a free-standing stand! If you take your tab with you and intend to keep it I recommend this as the best that is available at present.

Another happy Noreve case owner here, echoing exceptional quality and usability of Tab contained therein.

I'm in USA, and shipping added approx $20. My choice was in stock and arrived in about a week. Good e-mail notifications, including tracking link, got to watch it go through all the places I'd rather be.

Does anyone use the Otterbox case for the Tab? I'm been debating on getting it but wasn't sure about spending $70. I currently use the OEM leather case, the only thing I hate about it is it doesn't have a cut-out for the rear camera. Plus this was the only case available at the time as I bought the Tab at release. I also was wondering if the Tab was easy to remove from the Otterbox case.

If anyone currently uses this case, please let me know how its working for you.

@binaryhellstorm. Last weekend my wife bought me the Platinum SGA50GB case at Best Buy. Just like the one in the pictures you posted. So far I like it. But ive only been using it for a few days. I like the magnetic snaps. And all the holes are nicely positioned for the front and rear facing cameras.
My only gripe, which is pretty much the same as yours, is that the area around the USB connector could have been made about 3 mm. wider on the left side which would make the connector fit better. I intend to fix it myself with an Exacto knife.

Anyone in Canada looking for the Platinum SGA50GB case I have one,
never been used. Just like the one pictured a few posts above.
Galaxy Tab Case Recommendations


Can only buy them in the US as far as I know and its IMO the nicest case for the Tab,
but I returned by Tab before the case was delivered from the US.

Just PM, have a car charger and screen protectors too. Be happy to give you a package price.

Yeah I was tempted to do that as well.
Ii actually found this case and I am thinking about getting it and giving it a shot:
It has an integrated Bluetooth keyboard.


The only thing that I notice is how big the border is, I assume that they took an iPad case and keyboard setup and just changed the top holster part to accommodated the Tab.

Any UK users interested in this case, Mobilefun have it marked as in stock for £49.95

Yes, I bought one and apart from the price, am quite pleased. Took it on holiday for 2 weeks and it worked flawlessly and the keyboard didn't even need a recharge (it's charged from micro-usb, by the way).

MobileFun's version has a UK BT keyboard, it paired as per instructions first time and remembered the pairing. It's quick to type on, has the 4 Android special keys, the only problem being the Home key; if you press & hold to get the task manager up, as soon as you release the Home key the task manager then disappears. This is the only quirk I've found.

The case isn't as sturdy as the official Samsung case, and it's about an inch larger diagonally but seems like it will last a while and the fold out back is a real boon for watching movies on flights.

Wait a sec. My Galaxy Tab does not have any kind of plug in except for the charging outlet. How are you charging yours with the micro-usb?

Should've made it clearer, the keyboard charges from micro-usb, not the Tab.

My favourite case is the SPG Stand. An ABS case with adjustable stand, not the cheapest but well made.
