Speck Presido cases for Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra: Protect your investment and flatten the back

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra starts at $1,300 so spending just $40 to $45 for a case that offers drop and anti-microbial protection is a worthy investment. Speck cases also improve your ability to hold onto the phone.

Speck Presidio case options for the Samsung Note 20 Ultra 5G

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G, see our full review, just launched and it's a big phone with a large rear camera assembly. Speck's new Presidio line integrates with the camera hump to make the back flat while providing drop and antimicrobial protection.

Over the past few days I've been using the Presidio2 GripPresidio Perfect Clear, and Presidio2 Pro on a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G review unit. I continue to love the Grip models with raised lines for improved grip of the phone.

The cases range in price from $39.95 to $44.95 with two color options for the Presidio2 Grip available.

Presidio Perfect Clear shows off the color of the phone

The Presidio Perfect Clear is a clear case with anti-yellowing coating so it will remain clear for years. Given the new Mystic color options of the Note 20 Ultra, you can show off your favorite color with this case.

The camera array is very large on this phone, but the opening is cut to match perfectly. It's better to have a case on your Note 20 Ultra as the case flattens the back so it won't wobble when you set it down on a table. The case also helps prevent the phone from falling off of a surface.

There are openings for the microphone, speaker, USB-C port, and S Pen silo. This image also shows the thickness of the case material that is designed to provide up to 13 feet drop protection.

The Presidio Perfect Clear is clear on the back and all four sides.

The inside of the Presidio2 Pro shows the Armour Cloud design that was developed to compress and cushion the impact from drops. 

This $44.95 case is available in black and has a complete soft touch outside material.

Microban technology provides anti-microbial protection for the lifetime of the case.

The edges of the Presidio2 Pro rise above the angled edges and top/bottom edges in order to help protect your display from damage.

The case fits snugly so you will never have to worry about it falling off the phone. Drop protection up to 13 feet is provided.

Speck Presidio2 Grip in Coast alBlue/Black/Storm Blue

The Speck Presidio2 Grip is available now for $44.95 in two colors. I tested out the Coastal Blue/Black/Storm Blue model. You can also select the Black/Black/White color with the white appearing only on the Speck logo.

No-slip grip lines are provided on the back and sides of the case to provide excellent support for holding your large phone while using it.

Raised, tactile buttons are present for the right side buttons on the Note 20 Ultra.
