It's your choice whether to get a case for your Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9+. Some people hate to cover up the sleek design of a brand new phone with a hunk of ugly plastic — we get that.
But there are so many cool cases out there that can be as thin as paper, clear as a window, or rugged and designed to survive the harshest conditions. Plus, you can show off your sports allegiances or personality with a funky design.
Before you decide against a case, we want to make sure you know you've got options — like a lot of options. Here's every case for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ that we could find!
Samsung Silicone Cover
Samsung offers a minimalist case silicone cover for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ who are proud to rep the Samsung brand. There are four colors to match the available colors for the S9 (of course) and a soft touch finish providing a comfortable grip. Since it's from Samsung, it includes premium features like a microfiber lining to protect from microabrasions as the silicone absorbs impacts.
A premium case demand's a premium price — $45 for both the S9 or S9+ model from Samsung with select styles discounted on Amazon.
Spigen Thin Fit
A thin polycarbonate back plate with a little cushion in the corners to help prevent damage if you drop your phone.
Get yours for just $12.

Another case that's barely there, this Super Thin case from Peel is designed to keep the original look of your phone while still protecting it from scratches and drops.
Get yours for $25.
This case from Rhinoshield is a slim, one-piece shell made with Rhinoshield's signature "ShockSpread" material. It's minimalist but it offers rugged protection for most drops, although the curved edge of the display is exposed so a face-down drop that catches the edge of the table could cause issues. Otherwise, your phone will be well protected by this solid case from a trusted brand.
Available for the Galaxy S9 for $30 in classic black or with a carbon fiber finish.
This is Lifeproof's clear case option, so you know it's going to be top-quality. If you want serious drop protection from a clear case, look no further.
