Otterbox Defender Series Pro for the Samsung Galaxy S22 in a two-tone purple.

Otterbox Defender Series Pro

Pros
  • Premium rugged protection
  • 4x stronger than military drop standards
  • Port covers keep out dust and dirt
  • Made with 50% recycled plastic
Cons
  • Expensive

Otterbox is known for its durable protection, and the Defender Series Pro Case offers rugged protection with its polycarbonate shell, polycarbonate holder, and synthetic rubber slipcover. This case offers four-times as much drop protection as the military standard, with a comfy grip and port covers to keep dust, dirt, and lint out. A raised edge around the camera and screen add an extra layer of defense, while a silver-based antimicrobial additive is woven into the case to inhibit microbial growth and defend against common bacteria.

The in-built holster doubles as a belt clip and hands-free kickstand, and this case is wireless charging compatible. It's also made with 50% recycled plastic. It is the most expensive case on our list, but if you're after serious protection, it's worth every penny.

Where the Atomic Slim case really shines is its ability to protect against serious drops. You get up to 12 feet of drop protection in this slim shell, with a non-slip traction grip to keep your phone firmly in hand. Despite this sturdy dual-layer protection, the case is compatible with wireless charging and PowerShare, so you don't need to keep taking it on and off to juice up your phone.
