Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus in Camera Phones

Samsung Galaxy S9plus (3)

We have selected different types of cases so that you can find one that most suits you, and we'd recommend putting on a case as soon as you have your smartphone, as the Samsung Galaxy S9/8/7 features plenty of glass. There are numerous different types of cases available, all of them offering differing levels of protection, with even budget cases providing some protection in the form of protecting the back, sides, and corners from scratches.

Here's a run-down of the different types of cases:

  • Budget - Budget, "TPU" (Thermoplastic polyurethane) cases are often soft, squishy, and protective, but also thin, and cheap, making them a good option if you don't want scratches on your phone. 
  • Official cases are available from Samsung, and are often more expensive, but can offer premium features, such as a leather finish, or see-through screen covers. 
  • Protective and Tough - These go beyond the budget cases to give additional protection, designed to provide protection against drops, popular brands include Spigen and Otterbox. We've included links to a budget protective case, plus an Extra Tough case that is designed to give additional protection, often using two layers of protection. 
  • Wallet style - These give you both back and front protection, but can mean slower access to the smartphone's screen, and sometimes, these don't provide top, bottom or corner protection for the phone. 
  • Sports / Running case - Designed to let you strap your phone to your arm, letting you be active, Spigen make a universal case which makes it excellent value for money.
  • Waterproof - Universal waterproof case for smartphones up to 6inches, recommended for underwater use, because even though most premium smartphones are now waterproof, they open have exposed ports, such as the USB connection and headphone jack. 

 

Other options include a "skin" that simply protects from scratches, as well as "ultra-thin" cases, however, we haven't linked to these as they are mostly aesthetic, rather than providing much protection beyond scratch protection for your smartphone. So that you don't forget a screen protector, we've included links to compatible screen protectors that work with the curved sides of Samsung Galaxy phones.
