These are the best cases for the Samsung Galaxy S9+

There are plenty of cases available for the Samsung Galaxy S9+, but it can be hard to separate the good from the bad. The beautiful and large design of the Galaxy S9+ will quickly turn to horror after a nasty drop, so a quality case is almost a requirement. We’ve rounded up the best cases for the S9+ so give your phone a new look.

A luxurious first-party option

Samsung Alcantara Cover

Staff pick

This case fits your phone perfectly — as it should considering it comes straight from Samsung. The Alcantara feels great, and it’s thick enough to protect your phone in the event of a drop. Just like the phone itself the price continues to fall, but so does the availability so don’t miss out on this one.

Slim as can be

Spigen Thin Fit

Best thin case

This case is if you want the bare minimum protection and grip on top of your phone, in exchange for a super slim profile. The case is easy to put on and take off if need be, and it’s thin enough to allow easy access to all the ports. There are a few different color options, so you can choose the one that fits your style closest.

Style and shine

Spigen Liquid Crystal

Best clear case

Spigen’s Liquid Crystal is a lightweight delight for the S9 that lets the bold Samsung branding shine through while obscuring scuffs, smudges, and identifying information of the back of the phone. The Liquid Crystal case is a breeze to apply and work perfectly with phone grips.

Also your wallet

Maxboost Galaxy S9+ Wallet Case

If you’re into wallet cases, this is the one for you. You get three slots for IDs and cards, a small pouch for paper currency, and plenty of protection for your phone. There’s a solid magnetic clasp to keep things closed, and the wallet portion doubles as a stand for watching YouTube on your phone.

Built tough

Spigen Tough Armor

Another great rugged option comes from Spigen. It adds a kickstand, so you can prop the phone up and watch your favorite YouTube videos or a quick episode of TV on your lunch break. Kickstand aside, you get a rugged design that should protect your phone from even the worst drops and easy access to the fingerprint sensor and ports.

Another great wallet case

Mujjo Leather Wallet Case

If you want to consolidate things in your pockets without the bulk, this case is for you. There is a slot on the back of the case for your ID and cards, and just enough protection around the sides. The leather will feel luxurious, and you’ll have a slimmer profile since there isn’t a front clasp like on other wallet cases.

A rugged option

Spigen Neo Hybrid

If you want a rugged case, it’s hard to beat this one from Spigen. You get an awesome two-tone design — with a few color options — and shock absorbent rubber paired with a hard plastic frame for the ultimate protection. The Herringbone pattern looks classy as heck, so you don’t need to take this case off when you go for a night on the town.

Straight from Samsung

Samsung LED View Wallet Case

If you’re looking for a case that’s guaranteed to fit and you only need to carry one or two cards with you, then Samsung’s cool LED View Wallet might be up your alley. It comes in black or blue and delivers LED notifications right on the cover so you don’t have to open the cover to check your phone.

Most reliable rugged case

OtterBox Commuter Series

otterbox-galaxy-s9-commuter-series-press

Few names are as synonymous with phone cases as OtterBox. They’re built a reputation as a trusted brand by designing really rugged cases and backing their products with superior customer service. We’d recommend the Commuter series case which is a pocket-friendly case that still delivers the rugged protection you’ve come to expect from an OtterBox case. It’s got one big cutout on the back for the camera and fingerprint sensor and includes port covers to keep dirt out.

A functional wallet case

Case Mate Wallet Folio

When you think of leather cases, you likely imagine a folio wallet case as it’s the most common style. Consider this option from Case Mate which features a classic folio design with multiple card slots, a see-through slot for your ID, and a side pocket for storing cash. The integrated case holds your phone in place while the front flap keeps your display protected when closed.

Almost naked

Totallee Ultra Thin

This is another fantastic case for those that just want some added grip. The case is only .02 inches thick, so you’ll hardly notice a difference when your phone is in your pocket. It covers the phone’s slick glass with a matte plastic. It’ll keep fingerprints and scratches away, and give you more grip, so the phone doesn’t slip out of your hands.

Rugged beauty

Caseology Legion

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to protect your phone, but it doesn’t have to look ugly. Ara loved using this case on her S9+, and it’s still a great option for you. You get superb drop protection, generous cutouts for the camera, fingerprint sensor and bottom ports, and the choice of a few stylish colors.

Protect the trade-in value of your Galaxy S9+

The Galaxy S9+ is a big and beautiful phone that’s just over a year old now. It’s still a great phone to use or buy in 2019. Whether you’re looking to give your phone a new look or simply want a case for protection, we’re sure you’ll find one of our recommended cases a winner. There’s a case out there for everybody, whether you want something that doubles as a wallet, something luxurious, or something that’s barely there at all.

Our top recommendation is the Samsung Alcantara case which is a very unique and fancy case that was admittedly a hard sale to make for the full price, but harder to pass up at these prices.

All of these cases would be great for your Galaxy S9+, but my personal favorite would have to be the Spigen Tough Armor. I’ve enjoyed used Spigen cases for years, so you can be confident that each Spigen case will fit your phone perfectly.
