So many clear cases to choose from

The Galaxy S9 and S9+, are simply outstanding. Truly, this is a phone that you want to show off, but since it's essentially made of glass, you're going to want to cover the breakable bits with a case. Never fear, clear cases are here!

There are a lot of ways to do a clear case, and whether you want one that shines bright like a diamond or one that's as tough as one, there's a clear case here for you.

Spigen Ultra Hybrid Case

Sometimes, a clear case just goes beyond.

Best clear case

The Spigen Ultra Hybrid is a single-layer case that melds a strengthened silicone bumper with a diamond-hard and crystal-clear polycarbonate back for the best of both worlds: a case with a lot of protection without much bulk or much trouble getting your phone in or out.

Spigen's Neo Hybrid case is our favorite Samsung Galaxy S9 case at the moment, but if you want a clear case that's durable and shines like a diamond in the rough, be Plus Ultra! and get the Ultra Hybrid instead of the Neo Hybrid Crystal. This case stands up fabulously to everyday wear and tear, works with phone grips and wireless charging effortlessly, and it seems to hold up better against smudges, smears and grime than its competitors.

This being a single-layer case, the Ultra Hybrid feels slimmer in the hand, and the buttons are solid, and this clear case won't go sliding around willy-nilly on you like a lot of clear cases out there. The bumpers here are a matte color rather than a metallic, which just helps the back of the phone and the phone inside look even shiner by comparison.

Catalyst Impact Protection Case

Runner-up

Finally making the jump from iPhone accessories to Android, Catalyst's first Samsung case looks great, has incredibly tactile buttons, and offers fantastic protection from all angles without making the S9 overly bulky. This case also comes with a lanyard for a little extra insurance against dropping your phone, and the bold accents around the camera and fingerprint sensor add a wonderful pop of contrast to the back of the phone.

Spigen Liquid Crystal Case Series

Most stylish

Spigen's Liquid Crystal series of cases are a lightweight delight for the S9 that come in three flavors: traditional crystal Clear, nature-inspired Blossom, and glimmering Glitter, which lets the bold Samsung branding shine through while obscuring scuffs, smudges, and identifying information of the back of the phone. No matter the style, each Liquid Crystal case is a breeze to apply and work perfectly with phone grips.

Caseology Skyfall Series Clear Case

Featuring a durable ultra clear cover to protect the back of your phone along with a protective bumper frame (available in colors to match your device), Skyfall's slim case will perfectly accent your phone and keep it protected without distracting from the phone itself.

Ringke Fusion Clear Case

The best way to protect your phone from drop damage is to not drop your phone, so Ringke's Fusion case includes a handy, built-in wrist strap. Whether or not you want to use the wrist strap is up to you, but it's a thoughtful addition to a case that's as easy on the eyes as it is to use all day and all night.

Zizo ION Series Clear Case

Need a clear case that doesn't skimp on protection? With the Zizo ION Series, you get a rugged polycarbonate bumper hugging a flexible TPU shell, and Zizo includes a complementary tempered glass screen protector with each case so the front and back glass are safely secured against scratches and some shattering impacts. The color options aren't quite as well color-matched to the S9, but they have a style all their own.
