The Galaxy S22 lineup is considered one of Samsung’s bestsellers this yr. If you are shopping for the brand new Galaxy S22, you may have three totally different sizes to select from. So the case you find yourself shopping for will depend upon which mannequin you decide. For instance, the flagship Galaxysmartphone has a 6.8-inch display screen and is the heftiest mannequin. I believe the perfect case for a smartphone that measurement is one which has an built-in kickstand, so you may prop it up each as soon as in a whereas.
The identical could be mentioned for the smaller(with a 6.6-inch display screen), which we prefer to confer with as the center youngster within the S22 lineup, in addition to the usual (6.1 inches), which is probably the most “compact” of the trio. But all people has their very own opinions about what options make up the perfect Samsung case — and the perfect case for a smartphone basically — and that comes right down to everybody’s distinctive wants. That’s why my picks are available in a number of types, from clear case types to opaque ones, from slimmer fashions to extra rugged armor circumstances to folio pockets circumstances.
Note that a number of the suggestions for these Galaxy S22 sequence circumstances are primarily based on my expertise utilizing almost equivalent fashions with previous Galaxy smartphones, in addition to. The finest Samsung case choices under are listed on the beginning worth for the road, the place a number of smartphone circumstances are proven. Make certain that you simply’re shopping for the case that matches the precise mannequin of your S22. The identical goes for tempered glass for further safety — match the dimensions to the precise mannequin of your S22, whether or not that’s the Ultra, Plus or commonplace.
I commonly replace this finest Samsung case roundup with new picks as extra candidates arrive.
Leading case maker Speck brings a number of protecting case choices to the Galaxy S22, together with (from left to proper in image above) the Presidio Perfect-Clear Ombre, Presidio2 Grip and Presidio Perfect-Clear.
All the brand new fashions have superb drop safety (13 to 16 toes, relying on the mannequin) in addition to Speck’s Microban antimicrobial coating. The circumstances begin at $40 in numerous colour choices. Sometimes Speck gives reductions to first-time consumers on its web site.
British case-maker Gear4, now owned by Zagg, makes circumstances which might be proper there with OtterBox and Speck. They’re all lined with the corporate’s D3O shock-absorbing materials and have beveled edges to guard your telephone. Shown right here from left to proper are the Copenhagen (13-foot drop safety), Denali (16-foot drop safety), Milan (13-foot drop safety) and Crystal Palace (13-foot drop safety). All use some recycled plastic of their building, however the Copenhagen, made out of 52% plant-based materials, is technically probably the most eco-friendly.
Prices vary from $30 to $50 for the top-end Denali, which is the Gear4 case I in all probability like finest.
If you are on the lookout for a low cost clear case in your new Galaxy S22, Spigen’s Ultra Hybrid is a good worth at round $15-$18, relying on the model you get. I just like the Ultra Hybrid S (second from the left in photograph), which has an built-in kickstand. The Neo Hybrid, on the far proper, is pretty primary case, whereas the Cryo Armor (second from proper) is a $22 triple layer “gaming” case that is designed to “take up and dissipate warmth out of your telephone throughout hours of gameplay.”
No drop score is listed for these Samsung telephone circumstances, however most Spigen circumstances, apart from the slimmest fashions, supply affordable safety. If you need a robust case with respectable safety, get considered one of its Armor fashions.
Note that a lot of those cheaper clear circumstances have a behavior of turning yellow and degrading over time, which makes them much less translucent. But they’re low cost sufficient that you simply in all probability will not thoughts shelling out for a alternative if and when that occurs.
The firm’s tremendous protecting Defender sequence case is out there for all of the Galaxy S22 fashions, however most individuals need one thing much less cumbersome. I just like the Symmetry sequence circumstances — they’re slim with beveled edges, making them a good mixture of modern and protecting. That mentioned, I’ve come to love the extra protecting Commuter Series higher, due to the grips it has on the again and sides, in addition to having raised edges on the entrance that ought to assist defend your display screen. The raised bezel acts as a display screen protector to maintain your display screen scratch-free and the digicam module will get the identical therapy.
Rokform’s been making robust smartphone circumstances for years and apart from their sturdiness, their key characteristic is the flexibility to make use of them with numerous mounts — together with bike, automotive and bike mounts — which might be bought individually.
Rokform’s circumstances have detachable magnets and so they’re suitable with wi-fi charging in the event you take away the included heart magnet. “With the decrease magnet nonetheless intact, you may nonetheless wireless-charge whereas using magnetic mounting and all of our mounts,” Rokform says.
Available in black, burgundy and light-weight grey, Samsung’s leather-based case gives a good soft-to-the-touch really feel with respectable edge safety in a slim package deal. Alas, there is no kickstand, however in the event you’re on the lookout for a clear, elegantly designed case, this Samsung-branded case matches the invoice. It additionally gives respectable safety for the digicam lenses on the again. I personally just like the burgundy colour.
For the Galaxy S22, UK-based Mous brings its Limitless 3.0 case ($60) to the Galaxy S22. It is available in a few totally different eye-catching types, all of them lined with the AiroShock materials that the corporate says delivers wonderful safety in a slim design. They do appear sturdy and all embrace a lifetime guarantee.
Mous’ Limitless 3.0 circumstances are suitable with the corporate’s Limitless 3.0 equipment. That contains a pockets that magnetically adheres to the again of the telephone case and a few mounts, considered one of which is an air-vent mount in your automotive.
It’s additionally price noting that the Limitless 3.0 circumstances are the one ones I’ve seen which have a SIM-card storage slot on the within of the smartphone case for worldwide vacationers within the behavior of SIM-swapping.
Cyrill is a sub-brand of Spigen and like Spigen, its circumstances usually promote for lower than $20. Cyrill would not have fairly the identical choice for the Galaxy S22 because it does for the iPhone 13, however it has some protecting clear circumstances with floral designs (pictured on proper), in addition to the Brick Matte Finish case (the blue and crimson circumstances in photograph), which has a soft-to-the-touch end. It has a raised body on the again that gives some further safety for the digicam lenses. The corners of the case have a raised lip as properly.
When you may have a telephone with a giant display screen, it may be a good thought to get some added display screen safety with a folio case that additionally has slots for a couple of bank cards. Otterbox’s folio case, the Strada, is properly designed with a magnetic clasp. Its solely disadvantage is that it would not convert into a kickstand for watching movies. It’s solely out there in black for now.
Otterbox additionally makes the Strada Via folio, however I want this mannequin.
Particularly with the 2 bigger fashions of the Galaxy S22, I discover that having an built-in kickstand is a good characteristic and the ESR kickstand case is about as inexpensive as you get at round $20. It ought to dip to nearer to $15 with time.
Available in a few colour choices, Raptic’s Shield case prices lower than competing premium circumstances from Speck and OtterBox and is a fairly good worth total. It has 10-foot drop safety, in addition to an antimicrobial therapy.
Lifeproof’s Wake case is made out of recycled ocean plastic. It’s attractively designed however I would not name it tremendous robust — it is not enclosed on the backside and has 6-foot drop safety. (Note that some circumstances on this record have larger drop-protection rankings.) Lifeproof gives $15 off your first order on its web site.
Samsung’s Clear Standing Cover is not something fancy however it’s a protecting clear case that has an built-in kickstand. You can prop your telephone up horizontally or vertically utilizing the kickstand, which appears sturdy (it is bigger than Spigen’s built-in kickstand). Alas, it is presently out of inventory however will hopefully ship quickly.
