There are case makers that have built up a reputation for quality cases, year after year, model after model. While manufacturers like Otterbox and UAG may be known for their tough, tank-like cases, Spigen has cultivated a repertoire of cases — including the Choice Award-winning Neo Hybrid — that offer style and protection without boxy bulk or breaking the bank.

Best blend of style and substance

Spigen Neo Hybrid Case for Galaxy Note 9

The Neo Hybrid is a two-layer case that's thinner than most one-layer cases and sports a sophisticated Herringbone texture that's grippy but still works well with phone grips. 5 color variations are available, from a darling red-and-rose gold Burgundy to an expertly color-matched Ocean Blue.

Shining scuff protection

Spigen Liquid Crystal Case for Galaxy Note 9

Spigen's thin clear case grips well, hugs every curve of the Note 9's glass, and costs less than a pizza. The Liquid Crystal line isn't as quick to show smudges and smears as other clear cases, and the Glitter versions hide smudges and scuffs even better for $2 more.

Kickin' it old-school

Spigen Tough Armor Case for Galaxy Note 9

The Tough Armor may not be the most cutting-edge case on the block, but it's hard to argue with the dependability of its classic two-layer construction. There are four cool colors available for the outer polycarbonate shell, and there's even a kickstand built in to help prop your phone up for an in-flight movie.

Crystal-clear durability

Spigen Ultra Hybrid S Case for Galaxy Note 9

Looking to split the difference between the thin style of the Liquid Crystal and the firm functional protection of the Neo Hybrid? Try the Ultra Hybrid S, which has a polycarbonate back and a flexible bumper that makes it easier to slide the phone in and out as needed. This S version of this case is higher-rated than the normal Ultra Hybrid and sports a kickstand.

Pulling double-duty

Spigen Slim Armor CS Case for Galaxy Note 9

Wallet cases are usually thick leather folios, but Spigen's Slim Armor CS hides your cash and cards out of sight, out of mind in a hardshell card slot. It can't hold more than a couple of bills or 2-3 cards, but you're not showing off your cards and cash every time you use your phone the way folio cases do.

The Neo Hybrid's two-tone beauty is the perfect blend of slim style and sturdy protection, but the Liquid Crystal Glitter lets the Note 9 shine like the gem it is. No matter what case you're using with the Galaxy Note 9, you'll want to grab yourself a Spigen Style Ring POP to help you better grip the Note 9's large frame and keep it mounted in the car thanks to the Style Ring POP's magnetic mount compatibility.
