Best Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus cases 2023

The Samsung Galaxy S22+ may have Gorilla Glass Victus+ protection to stop minor scratches, but it's still vulnerable to hard falls and just wide enough to make it tricky to hold one-handed. We strongly recommend you buy a Galaxy S22+ case to protect your $1,000 investment, whether you plan to use it for a long time or trade it in for a Galaxy S23.

Below, we've rounded up the best Galaxy S22+ cases for our favorite brands, ranging from rugged and chunky protection to functional wallet cases.

The best Galaxy S22 Plus cases balance size and security

The Samsung Galaxy S22+ will receive security updates through the end of 2027, so it'll last you for years or make a valuable trade-in chip for your next Android phone (like the Galaxy S23) — so long as you treat it right with a well-designed case, of course.

You don't need to go fully heavy-duty with the Poetic Neon Series or CaseBorne's V Ultimate Protection, though both are wonderfully sturdy cases with wide, steady kickstands. More compact cases like the Ringke Onyx, Tech21 Evo Check, and Spigen Liquid Air can add grip and air cushion impact protection.

The Galaxy S22 Plus'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 don't choose the Poetic Guardian — which has a built-in screen protector — you may want to buy one of these Galaxy S22+ screen protectors to pair with whichever case you choose.

If you're extra-particular about your hues, kwmobile has dozens of shades to choose from whether you want one or more. Diverbox also offers a mix of bright, mute, and dark colorways for the S22 Plus if you're hunting for something a little more durable than TPU silicone.

If you missed the + in the title here and were looking for cases for the S22+'s big and little sisters, we've also rounded up the best Galaxy S22 cases for the only compact flagship left in the main Android market and the best Galaxy S22 Ultra cases for the 2022 Note in everything but name. 

We've also gathered up all of Samsung's first-party Galaxy S22 cases for those of you seeking an official case to blow your Samsung.com promotional credit on — though seriously, the Silicone Case with Strap is the best bet if you care about actual style.
