No matter how beautiful your shiny new Galaxy S22 Plus is, it won't stay beautiful should it slip out of your hands onto rough asphalt or unforgiving stone. Grip and impact absorption are the only cures, and to get both, you need a top-notch case. Thankfully, we have the best Galaxy S22 Plus cases for you right here for you to pick from.
These Galaxy S22 Plus cases offer protection and functionality
Poetic Neon Series Case Designed for Samsung Galaxy S22
Classic design, bold colors
This two-layer design is a throwback for many of us, but it's still secure and sound, and the eight colorways here beat the pants off the OtterBox Commuter Series. The only thing missing is a dust flap, and silicone plugs are easier to use, anyway.
Spigen Liquid Air Armor Designed for Galaxy S22
The triangular texture across the back of this case is grippy without being a dust and grime magnet like Samsung's official silicone case. The air-cushion channels across the case's lining can help soften drops, while its slim, form-fit is easy to hold.
Official Galaxy S22 Plus Silicone Cover with Strap
So fun yet functional
Debuting with the Galaxy Z Flip 3, the Silicon Cover with Strap turned a lot of heads, and Samsung is stepping up its game with the S22+ model. This case's design makes it easy to hold and scroll with only one hand. This keeps your other hand free to do other things. Plus, the grippy silicone cover is durable, so it will keep your phone safe even if you accidentally drop it.
CaseBorne V for Samsung S22
Taking full advantage of its extra mass, the CaseBorne V (formerly Armadillotek) nests an extra-durable kickstand in the back of the case so that no matter where you are, you don't have to hold it up the whole time. This case has been tested to withstand 21-foot drops, so you can bring it along with you on any adventure without risking damage to your Samsung.
Ringke Onyx Compatible with Samsung Galaxy S22
Ringke knows the last thing you want is your phone to slide around the table while you're tapping at it, so it offers raised feet on the back to both keep the phone stable and keep the camera more elevated from the tabletop.
Caseology Nano Pop
Bubbly, bold colors
The Nano Pop has proven itself a worthwhile case over the last year, and it's looking quite fetching on the S22 as well. The Blueberry Navy color scheme will speak to many, many sports fans, but the Evo Green will turn heads, too. Offering a slim fit, this two-tone case is easy to hold. It's also conveniently compatible with wireless charging.
Poetic Guardian Case for Samsung Galaxy S22+
Protective and pretty
Using the same polycarbonate frame and reinforced shell design as its stouter Spartan case, the Guardian still offers plenty of protection while creating striking contrasts between case and phone colorway. Its built-in anti-scratch screen protector and fingerprint scanner make this case tough and easy to use.
Official Galaxy S22+ Leather Cover
Genuine leather cases are getting harder and harder to find these days, but that's okay; Samsung makes the best leather Galaxy S22+ case. This case is shock-absorbing, keeping your device safe from bumps and falls. The colors this year aren't quite as wide as years past, but it still looked pretty great in black.
Diverbox for Galaxy S22 Plus
Ready to defend
Never worry about your Samsung Galaxy S22 breaking with this heavy-duty case. With a solid outer shell and a cozy-fitting interior, this case will arm and protect! In fact, it is designed with military-grade protection. Not only does this wicked strong case keep your phone safe, but it's also uber practical too as it supports wireless charging.
i-Blason Cosmo Case
Want heavy-duty protection without looking like a total bore? i-Blason's Cosmo is the multi-colored answer to your prayers. Available in three marbled varieties, these cases are grippy, solid, and cute all in one. In fact, these aesthetically pleasing cases are also bump-and-scratch-resistant, so feel good flashing your new phone case wherever you go.
ESR Metal Kickstand
ESR knows that even though kickstands are extra-useful in the age of video calls and TikTok binges, most of us want one without having to wear a tank. The kickstand here is smaller and lower, but still secure if properly cared for. Plus, its clear design lets you show off the color of your phone too!
Spigen Slim Armor CS Designed for Galaxy S22 Plus Case
Carry it all
While Samsung Digital Wallet can store your driver's license, you still need the physical one when you drive, so keep it hidden but close with this sleek wallet case. It can fit two cards and a couple of crisply folded bills. Simply slide the built-in wallet's lid down to expose your cards hidden in this shock-absorbing case.
kwmobile TPU Silicone Case Compatible with Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus
20 flavors of awesome
This minimalistic case has no real branding or defining textures; it's a scratch guard, grip, and carrier of stupendous shades. You have 20 colors to choose from, meaning whether you want Alabama crimson or Little Mermaid purple, you can scratch that itch here.
SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle Pro Series Case for Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus
Built for a beating
Supcase loves to share the absolute horror stories UB Pro owners have put the cases through, like phones surviving a high-speed fall on a freeway or getting run over by a lawnmower. This is your Galaxy S22+'s Fort Knox. When you're not testing its armor, flip out its kickstand and binge-watch your favorite show.
UAG Outback Bio Series
UAG's known for its drop protection, and even with this 100-percent compostable, biodegradable case, they've managed to keep a 12-foot drop protection rating. Both the case and the packaging are eco-friendly and both speckled colorways look awesome.
The best Galaxy S22 Plus cases balance size and security
Your Samsung Galaxy S22+ could last you five years if you treat it right, which is why your case needs to be protective above all else. That doesn't mean you need to go fully heavy-duty with the Supcase UB Pro or Armadillotek Series V — though both are wonderfully sturdy cases with wide, steady kickstands — more compact cases like the Ringke Onyx and Spigen Liquid Air can add grip and air cushion impact protection.
The Galaxy S22+'s four colorways can create some interesting styles when mixed with cases like the Poetic Guardian and Neon that can mesh perfectly or go bold with sharp contrasting shades. Why go basic black when you can spice things up with some color? If you're extra-particular about your hues, kwmobile has dozens of shades to pick from.
