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 design of the Galaxy S9+ will quickly turn to horror after a nasty drop, so a case is almost a requirement. If you want something straight from Samsung that looks and feels great, the Alcantara Cover will be your best bet.
A luxurious first-party option
Samsung Alcantara Cover
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.
If you want your phone case to be 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.
A rugged option
Spigen Neo Hybrid
If you want a rugged case, it’s hard to beat this one from Spigen. You get a great 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.
Same great glass feeling
Besiva Tempered Glass Case
This case still protects your phone, but the tempered glass panel on the back means it has the same smooth finish as your phone’s glass. And since this is just clear glass, you can still see whatever color choice you purchased.
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.
Slim as can be
Spigen Thin Fit
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 its 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.
Samsung S-View Cover
If you love an always-on display, but want to keep your phone safe, this is the case for you. This flip case comes straight from Samsung, and you’ll still be see all your notifications come, even when the flip cover is closed. You can also flip the cover around to watch YouTube videos, and you still get easy access to all of the phone’s buttons and ports.
Samsung Hyperknit Case
This case is great if you want your phone to feel as safe as you do when you wear that sweater your grandmother knitted you for Christmas a few years ago. Just like your grandmother knows you better than anyone else, Samsung knows its phones better than anyone else, so this fits your phone precisely. You can easily plug accessories into the ports at the bottom, use the rear fingerprint sensor, and the power, volume and Bixby buttons.
totallee Galaxy S9 Plus case
This is another great 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.
Caseology Legion for Galaxy S9+
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.
Spigen Tough Armor for Galaxy S9+
Another great rugged option comes from Spigen. This 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.
Clean and clear
Spigen Ultra Hybrid for Galaxy S9+
You’re going to want to show off the cool color on your Galaxy S9+, and the best way to do that is with a clear case. This case from Spigen wraps around you phone, so it’s protected from all sides. The case itself isn’t too thick, so it should be comfortable inside your pocket. You get easy access to the ports, a generous cutout for the cameras and fingerprint sensor, and the buttons are replicated on the case itself.
All of these cases would be great for your Galaxy S9+, but my personal favorite would have to be the Spigen Neo Hybrid. I’ve used Spigen cases for years, so I know I’m getting something that will fit my phone perfectly. The Herringbone pattern adds a bit of grip, and it’s a classy addition to my phone.
