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 fist your style closest.
