Although the Galaxy S9 is said to be harder than last year's model, the glass front and back of the handset are still extremely easy to crack when dropped. To avoid potential damage, here are the best cases and screensavers for your Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 +.
Cell Phones from Amazon
The Best Overall
BodyGuardz Trainr Pro
Out of all the cases I've tried on the Galaxy S9 and S9 + and all the other cases on this list , the Trainr Pro has reviewed all the boxes when it comes to finding the best smartphone case.
The case features a clear polycarbonate back, a sleek profile and a handy design that covers the edges of the handset as well as the front and back corners of the object. But what really sold me on Trainr Pro was how big the button presses were. I found another case that adds to the design of the Galaxy S9 while providing drop protection and a near-perfect feel in the hand.
Although I have not used it, the Trainr Pro has two large slots on each edge
BodyGuardz also makes a handful of other cases for Samsung's phones, but none of them had the same fit and build as the Trainr Pro.

Urban Armor Gear
If you can not sold with the BodyGuarz case, the Urban Armor Gear Monarch case comes at a close second. As you can see in the following photos, it has a very robust design (2X Military Drop Test Standards) with accents of genuine leather and metal.
The case itself is super-light and slim, which is related to the grippy connection design, ensuring an extremely pleasant experience. The best part of any case of UAG is the tactile response when pressing the Power, Volume and Bixby buttons.
If the Monarch case does not suit your style, UAG also makes a handful of other cases that all offer the same level of protection with slightly different styling.

LifeProof has been the gold standard for years when it comes to protecting your smartphone from virtually every element and drop. But with OEMs like Samsung providing their handsets with water resistance and other safety features, LifeProof has released new cases that are sleeker and offer an open design while still providing excellent protection.
The Lifeproof Slam is a two-piece case. It features a hard, clear plastic back and a soft, flexible TPU material on the front and sides to protect against falls up to 6.6 feet. Unfortunately, as with most LifeProof products we've seen in the past, the keys on the case are slightly stiff and require more pressure than other cases.

OtterBox offers a handful of different case options for the Galaxy S9 and S9 +, but two of them really stand out. The first is the Pursuit series, which features an ultra-thin design while providing the fall protection that most companies are known for. And despite this thin design, the OtterBox still has physical covers over the various ports to keep water, dust, dirt and other elements away from the device.
My biggest problem in this case is how hard it is on the handset. There is a small piece of plastic that wraps around the front of the handset and causes the device to fall out of the case. But it is difficult and troublesome to put it under the rubber lip of the case body.
If you're someone who puts off a lot of their handset and just needs a thick and sturdy case to make sure the OtterBox case Defender series is what you need. This case includes a hard plastic case encapsulating the handset, which is then covered by a thick piece of rubber that should absorb almost every drop.
Oh, and it comes with a belt holster, as it could be difficult to put the Defender case in your pocket

Grip  Bacon Presidio Grip
If you are looking for one of the best available case for your Galaxy S9 / S9 + and looking for a bit more grip, the bacon Presidio Grip could be the answer.
The case is a piece of TPU with a tough, scratch-resistant exterior and a soft interior to protect your device from 10-foot drops. The crowning glory is a non-slip grip that covers most of the back and sides of the case for a good grip.

Moment Photo Case
While cell phones are able to take some great photos, they are limited by the lens built into the handset. Fortunately, companies like Moment have made external lenses that fit over the device's camera to give you extra shooting options.
Unfortunately, Moments case, which is used to attach the lenses, may need some work, but it does its job. It protects your Galaxy from small drops and scratches, but it's mostly there to support the lenses. You can get the photo sleeve with a black or walnut design.
Take a look at our comparison between the different lenses of Moment's and RhinoShield.

In contrast At the moment, the case of RhinoShield is higher quality and supports its own cell phone lenses. As I wrote in my review of the RhinoShield options, Moment has built his case for mounting his lenses, while RhinoShield has built his fantastic cases and then added the option to mount lenses on them.
The SolidSuit case is also available in a carbon fiber or class black finish, and includes the company's ShockSpread polymer that protects a handset from an 11-foot case.
Unfortunately, it does not look like RhinoShield sells the adapter to mount the available lens on the S9 / S9 +

Kerf Wood Case
If you want something that is not just a typical TPU case, the Kerf wooden case is worth it. You can read our review of the case here.

RhinoShield CrashGuard Bumper
If You looking for something other than a case to protect your new Galaxy handset, RhinoShields CrashGuard bumper is worth a visit. With the company's ShockSpread polymer, the bumper protects your handset from an 11-foot fall.
If you are looking for a reliable bumper housing, CrashGuard has no other options in terms of protection and premium quality on the market. Finally, we expect that dbrand released its grip bumper for the Galaxy S9 and S9 +, but it's not yet available.

Speck Presidio Folio Wallet Pouch
If If you want your smartphone case to look twice as good as a wallet, the Presidio Folio Case from Presidio brings you the excellent design of the Presidio line up to three different cards.
The nice thing is that the front door not only provides room for maps, but also serves as a viewing window and protects the front of the screen when it is closed. Unfortunately, there is no magnet or clip to hold the flip back when the handset is in use.

Whitestone Dome Glass
If You need a screen protector made of tempered glass, there is really nothing better than the offer of Whitestone Dome Glass. While most screen protectors have an adhesive on the edge of the glass, Whitestone uses a liquid, kit and UV light for a perfect fit.
But with this premium application process and near perfect fit comes with a high price tag that comes with Some of the highest quality cases can match.

RhinoShield Screen Protectors
If you are looking for a less expensive option than the Whitestone Dome Glass, RhinoShield offers its own tempered glass protective film. While this sticks to the handset with an adhesive on the edge of the screen protector, you can still enjoy as much as possible from the display of the Galaxy S9 / S9 + with the curved edge of the lens.
In addition, RhinoShield sells a impact-resistant plastic back protector designed to protect the back glass from light drops. This also prevents the scratching of the rear glass in conjunction with the company's bumper housing.

Mophie Charge Stream Pad +
Mophie's Wireless Charger is probably my favorite wireless charger for the Galaxy S9 / S9 +, mainly because of its simple design and its high-quality feel. The puck has a decent weight and has a non-stick rubber coating that covers the top and bottom of the charger to hold the pad and handset in place.
The charger comes with a QC 2.0 wall adapter that allows the Mophie Stream Pad + wirelessly delivers up to 10W of power to your Samsung handset.

Belkin Boost Up  Another great option is the Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charger. What makes this difference is that Belkin makes Samsung's fast wireless charging with the idea that its wireless charger delivers up to 15W of power.
The main difference is that the Belkin charger is made of a plastic that feels slightly hollow to the touch and requires a proprietary plug to deliver power.
