The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ release today in Australia and they look pretty spectacular. You wouldn’t want to get a little scratch on them would you? What about a tiny little dent in a corner?
Grubby fingers all over that AMOLED screen? No, no, no. You need to protect that thing. Here’s some of the best cases for Samsung’s latest.
Spigen Neo Hybrid
Pros: Good in the pocket, slim design, tactile buttons on the side are some of the best.
Cons: Rounded lips take away sleek design of the S9, harder to get in Australia.
Pros: Good value, incredibly thin and flexible covering, lightweight, complements the clean bezel-less design of the S9.
Cons: It’s super thin so protects the edges well but screen is prone to damage still. Won’t save you from a big drop.
Price: $29.95 (sign up at Cygnett to get 10% off your first order, too)
3SIXT Neo Case
Pros: A two-in-one case with a harder inner shell and leather outer case with wallet, has card storage, looks professional.
Cons: Bulky, requires extra accessories for mounting in car, not ideal switching between inner and outer.
Pros: Rigid shell, feels durable, can take a bump, good size, well priced.
Cons: Not big on the in-hand feel or buttons myself, edges more prone to damage. The pink is not very good at all.
Pros: Simple, dual layer case, 3m drop protection, resists UV damage, thin, lightweight, sturdy.
Cons: Well… It’s a simple and clear case – like it’s really simple, doesn’t complement design so well. Tactile buttons on side feel a bit cheap.
Pros: For protection, huge – ultra durable, great edge protection, complements design, real dust resistant.
Cons: Super thick, no flexibility, for the S9+ makes an already big phone thicker again, not cheap.
