The Galaxy A12 was Samsung’s best-selling phone in 2021. In fact, the Galaxy A12 topped worldwide shipping charts last year and outperformed every other Android smartphone on the market, and every iPhone, too.
With an estimated 51.8 million units shipped in 2021, the Galaxy A12 is an unexpected success and proves that cheaper smartphones can be popular, even next to Apple’s finest devices.
Given the popularity of this budget Samsung phone, countless case manufacturers have designed new accessories to try to capitalize on the phone’s success. There’s a sea of Samsung Galaxy A12 cases out on the market, but we’ve narrowed our list down to a dozen best cases you can buy in 2022.
