Incipio Grip and Kate Spade cases for Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Fold 3: Stylish drop protection
Incipio Grip cases for Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3
The Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 are the latest engineering marvels to launch from Samsung and while they both have stronger glass and IPX8 water resistance, they are still susceptible to damage from drops, bumps, and scratches.
Incipio has Z Fold 3 Grip and Z Flip 3 Grip cases available for $69.99. Fold 3 color options include Black, Red, and Midnight Navy while Black and Red are available for the Z Flip 3. Both case options are focused on drop protection with enhanced textures on the edges and matte finishes to help you hold onto your phone.
Right side of the Z Flip 3 Grip case
The right side has an opening for the fingerprint sensor and raised buttons for volume. Note the textured nubs along the sides to help you hold onto the phone.
Antimicrobial treatment is present on the case to eliminate most surface bacteria. Wireless charging and wireless payments are supported with the case on your phone.
Upper section of the case
The cover display and dual cameras are accessible with a large opening around them. The red color case looks nice on the phone and does a good job of protecting the edges and back.
No hinge protection with the Incipio Grip
There is no hinge protection when the Z Flip 3 is closed. You can see the thickness of the Z Flip 3 Grip case in this image.
Slightly raised edge
Solid edge protection is provided and the sides rise just a bit above the display to protect it if you rest the phone face down on a surface.
Minimal tape to hold it in place
The two pieces snap onto the Z Flip 3, but you need to use the adhesive strips to try to keep it in place. There are four extra strips in the retail package and you may find the need to use more to hold the case in place.
Installed on the Z Fold 3
Incipio does not provide any hinge protection, which is a shame for a case that costs $70. It's a bit tough to justify this price when the majority of the case protection is just for the back panel of the phone.
The back panel does match up well with the triple cameras so that the back is now flush.
Side view of the Incipio Grip
The raised volume buttons are nice, but the depth to the fingerprint sensor has actually made it a bit more difficult for me to activate the sensor.
The textured grips on the sides help you hold onto the phone while the internal structure of the case helps it pass the drop test for a 14-foot drop.
Top of the Z Fold 3 case
Speaker and mic openings are present on the top of the case. Note the extent of the grips as well.
Bottom of the Z Fold 3 case
Speaker, mic, and USB-C openings are present on the bottom.
Kate Spade Hollyhock Floral Clear for Z Flip 3
If you want a more stylish case for your Z Flip 3, then Incipio also offers the Kate Spade New York Hollyhock Floral Clear case for $69.99.
The case is a two-piece hardshell clear case with floral print and snaps on securely.
Upper portion of the case
The top part of the case has an opening for the cover display and dual cameras. The floral print looks good with the white Z Flip 3 too.
Lower portion of the case
The lower part of the case has the Kate Spade New York branding and more floral print. The case supports wireless charging and wireless payments too.
No hinge protection
There is no hinge protection for your Z Flip 3, but note the thickness of the case material that is designed to provide shock resistance to your phone.
The case has a one-year warranty and adds very little weight to the Z Flip 3 package.
Right side configuration
An ample opening is provided for the fingerprint sensor with two volume buttons that are easy to manipulate.
The sides have substantial material to protect your phone from bumps and bruises.
