OK, so you’ve invested in the new Samsung Galaxy S9 or the Galaxy S9+ so now you’ve got to protect that investment by buying a decent case and the good news is there are plenty to choose from.
Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and S9+ actually comes with a clear silicone case but if you’re after added protection or just want something that looks even more stylish there are lots of choices for you.
We’ll be looking at cases from Cygnett, Tech21, EFM, 3SIXT and Pelican.
Cygnett not only has cases but also screen protectors that are designed especially for the curved edges of the Samsung Galaxy S9 Infinity Display.
The Cygnett RealCurve ($49.95) edge-to-edge protector is made from 9H glass and has a six-layer construction. It also comes with an Easy-Fit applicator.
The Cygnett FlexCurve ($29.95) also has edge-to-edge protection with four-layers of protection and can be applied to the screen bubble-free.
The Cygnett AeroShield ($24.95) is a slim polycarbonate case that still offers a high level of protection and the Cygnett Skin ($29.95) is made of tough TPU with a soft finish but provides sturdy protection.
Tech21 has patented FlexShock and BulletShield technology built into its cases which provides up to 4m of drop protection.
The EvoTactical ($54.95) has three layers of protection to disperse and absorb impact energy and is just 1.6mm thick with a tactile feel.
The Tech21 EvoCheck ($54.95) has the same level of protection but it is transparent and available in six different shades.
EFM has released the Aspen ($49.95) and Cayman ($54.95) cases for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.
The cases utilise the proprietary D30 impact protection material for superior impact resistance.
Each of the cases are put through rigorous tests and meet military drop test standards.
3SIXT has one of the widest ranges of cases for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ to suit different tastes and different needs.
Starting with the 3SIXT PureFlex case ($24.95), it is slim and light but offers handy everyday protection.
If you’re after more of a wallet-like case then 3SIXT has three choices.
The SlimFolio ($29.95) with slots for two cards and a built-in stand, the NeoCase ($39.95) which is made from genuine leather with space for cards and cash and with a removable inner magnetic liner and the NeoClutch ($39.95) – a stylish accessory for women with a genuine outer leather finish and space for cards and a cash pocket.
Pelican have released some eye-catching cases that will complement the stylish Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.
The Shield ($69.95) is made from Kevlar fibres which is eight times stronger than steel wiring along with five layers of protection and a shock absorbing shell.
The Pelican Ambassador ($49.95) has dual raised bezels front and back to prevent the phone coming in to contact with hard surfaces. It also has a gold electro-plated accent to add a touch of class.
