While you’re here, why not check out our pick of the best Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus screen protectors, or if you’ve gone for the Ultra, you can also see our roundup of the best Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra cases.
Otterbox is known for its ultra-durable cases, but this one has a slim profile making it ideal to slip into a pocket. The Commuter Series Case is constructed from a hard polycarbonate shell with a synthetic rubber slip cover and soft inner to deflect impact. Made from 35% recycled plastic, a silver-based antimicrobial additive is cleverly woven into the case to provide continued protection for the case against common bacteria over time. This case is tested to survive up to three times as many drops as military standard and it’s wireless charging compatible too. Pick it up in Rock Skip Way (two-tone blue, pictured), Maven Way (two-tone pink), or classic black.
Cool and futuristic? Check. Rugged? Check. Sleek? Check. Urban Armor Gear’s Pathfinder case ticks all the boxes, with its tough composite design. A soft, impact-absorbing core and hard exterior combine to provide superb protection that meets military drop test standards MIL-STD 810G 516.6. The protection is rounded out by heavy-duty TPU button covers, a rubberized non-slip grip, and a raised bezel around the screen to protect it from drops or scratches when placed face down.
Rugged protection doesn’t have to mean a chunky case. Crave’s Slim Guard case offers heavy-duty protection in a slim, lightweight hard shell case that’s scratch and shock-resistant. Its compact profile means it’s ideal to slip into a bag or pocket, and you get nine feet of drop protection built-in. With precise port cutouts and a raised bezel around the camera, this case is a bargain at under $20. Pick it up in Forest Green (pictured), Aqua, Lilac, Navy, or Black.
Show off your Galaxy S22 Plus in Spigen’s Hybrid case. You can pick this case up in crystal clear, clear with matte black bumpers, or frosted (semi-transparent) black. The durable polycarbonate back and TPU bumper keep your phone safe from impact, and the case meets military drop test standards thanks to Air Cushion Technology to absorb shock. Raised bezels around the camera and screen and a grippy finish round out the protection for under $20.
Ghostek’s stylishly futuristic cases never disappoint, and we’re pleased to report that it has extended its popular ATOMIC Slim series to the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus. This means that Samsung fans have the chance to benefit from a combination of flexible TPU, hard PC, and aluminum bumpers. This combination of materials makes the case impressively resilient, with it capable of withstanding drops from up to 12 feet. It has been tested to military standards, and includes R7X shock-absorbing corners for added protection, as well as a non-slip grip around its sides. Needless to say, it also looks great, with the red trim and transparent back sure to turn a few heads.
If you already have a Samsung phone, you may as well complement it with an official Samsung case. This particular number is made primarily with leather, which is completed by an inner TPU skeleton. It looks very smooth, and will certainly accentuate the S22 Plus’ good looks. Of course, while it won’t be quite as rugged as some covers, the dual-layer construction means that it will cope with pretty much all everyday mishaps and shocks. It will also support wireless charging, and, as you may be unsurprised to learn from an official case, it very snugly fits all of the phone’s buttons and ports.
Olixar produces cases that punch well above their respective weights in terms of price, with this ultra-thin 100% clear case being a prime example. As its name suggests, it’s fully transparent, with its silicone gel material being treated with an anti-yellowing coating to prevent it from tarnishing over time. Because it’s completely clear, you’ll get to show off the S22 Plus’ elegant design, yet despite its thinness, it also performs well as far as protection goes. It includes raised bezels and edges that protect the phone’s screen and lenses from localized damage. Meanwhile, the use of flexible silicone means that it can roll with the punches a little better than some more inflexible and rigid alternatives.
Here’s a military-standard drop-tested Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus case from Poetic. As a case designed to be as battle-hardened as possible, it features an impact-absorbing inner TPU layer and harder PC corners. Together, both materials give the case the ability to handle all sorts of falls and accidents, as do the raised lips around the screen and camera. Its rear has been given a textured pattern that prevents slippages from your hand and from surfaces, so the chances of it falling are comparatively slim. Also compatible with wireless charging.
Here’s another hardy Galaxy S22 Plus case, this time from Ringke. As with other rugged phone cases, it marries TPU and PC, so you get flexibility and durability in a single package. With the addition of raised bezels, this particular case will survive trauma with the best of them. Importantly, it has received MIL-STD 810G – 516.6 certification for drop protection, so you can be sure that its camo design isn’t simply for show. What’s more, despite being tough, it remains relatively slim and easy to handle, so it won’t add unnecessary bulk to your pockets or bags.
For those of us who prefer to have a screen protector and a case for our phones, this combo from Anccer should do nicely. Its basic proposition is a PC-built case that features faux leather on its reverse, with a mix of hard plastic and rubberized edges providing users with strength and flexibility. On top of this, it adds a screen protector made from tempered glass, as well as a protector for the S22 Plus’ lenses. Using both of these will ensure that your phone has all-around protection from life’s surprises. If that weren’t enough, compatibility with wireless charging makes this a good all-rounder, and at a reasonable price.
This Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus case from LoveCases is for anyone who finds themselves a little uninspired by run-of-the-mill generic covers. Made of ultra-thin silicone gel, it features a stylish stars-and-moon design, with LoveCases also offering alternative designs in the same series. While it looks pretty fetching, it will also keep your phone out of harm’s way, with the raised bezels offering an extra line of defense. It’s also fully compatible with wireless charging, and comes with tidy cutouts for all of the phone’s ports and buttons.
