Otterbox Commuter Series Case

Pros
  • Slim profile
  • Antimicrobial protective properties
  • Military standard drop protection
Cons
  • Exterior feels slippery

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 slipcover 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 against common bacteria over time. This case is tested to survive up to three times as many drops as the 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.

Samsung Leather Cover Black Case for Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus.

Samsung Leather Cover Black Case

Pros
  • Supports wireless charging
  • Luxurious leather exterior
  • Perfect fit for its own branded phone
Cons
  • Not as rugged as some other covers

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 Ultra-Thin 100% Clear Case for Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus.

Olixar Ultra-Thin 100% Clear Case

Pros
  • Transparent clear case shows off phone's finish
  • Easy to install and remove
  • Raised bezels and edges add protection
Cons
  • Not as rugged as some other covers

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.

Poetic Neon Series Case for Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus in black with orange detail.

Poetic Neon Series Case

Pros
  • Military standard drop tested
  • Grippy textured patterned exterior
  • Supports wireless charging
Cons
  • Too bulky for some hands

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. It's also compatible with wireless charging.

Ringke Fusion X Tough Camo Black Case for Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus.

Ringke Fusion X Tough Camo Black Case

Pros
  • Certified military standard drop protection
  • Slim case
  • Raised bezels protect display and camera
Cons
  • Doesn't work well with some screen protectors

As with other rugged phone cases, Ringke marries TPU and PC, so you get flexibility and durability in a single package. With the addition of raised bezels, this 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.

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 wasn’t enough, compatibility with wireless charging makes this a good all-rounder, and at a reasonable price.
