    Ok ok, I know I'm a little early here, but I keep seeing renders and random case action for the upcoming S9 and S9+. Figured we should start an official thread now. Why not!?

    So - if you spot any sweet looking cases for the upcoming S9 and S9+, post them up here (with links please!).

    I ordered the trusty Otterbox Defender for my wife's S9+. I have an Otterbox Commuter on my S8+ and also on my 2 phones prior to that. I've dropped multiple phones from different heights using Defenders and Commuters over the years and never had a cracked screen or major damage to a device. They may cost more than the cheap Amazon cases but the piece of mind is worth it to me.

    Posted this over on XDA and figured I'd post here too so you guys can see what the Poetic Revolution looks like and the affinity.



    Thought I'd share some photos and input of 2 cases I ordered. I bought the Poetic Revolution and Affinity cases from Amazon and they arrived yesterday, I will update on fit and will post more photos once my S9+ arrives tonight

    The cases seem to be made really well. The Affinity is the clear one and it's very grippy for those that want a grippy clear case.

    Picked up this one, have the same one on my S8+. Thin profile and has the outer plastic band for a little more protection. Things I look for is thin profile and that the case covers the buttons.

    Anyone use Bodyguardz cases? I ordered the Ace Fly case & their curved tempered glass screen guard since it was 30% off - still pricey at 24$ for the case.
    I returned the screen protector & went with Whitestone & am considering a Spigen case instead. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the information. I have a Spigen Rugged Crystal on the way. Seems many clear cases (Skyfall that I had on my S7) was way to slippery for my liking. I also have the Caselogy Legion in gunmetal waiting on my S9+ and have the Spigen Neo Hybrid on the way.

    Here is the S9+ Case-Mate Sheer Crystal case. Hard to tell from photos but purple color does show through beautifully and bumper protection is quite nice.

    I like the Speck that's on my S8+ but wasn't willing to pay $45. This one for $15.99 works great.

    Looks great! I ordered the Legion as well. I like the large gap when the phone is face down.

    I decided to try the tech 21 Evo check in black smoke color i was hoping they had the clear version but no go :/ and the Whitestone dome...guess the uag is going back since I'm more worried about protecting the screen and the drop test for the tech 21 looked promising
    Is the uag not compatible with the whitestone protector?

    Is it hard to reach the heart rate sensor with this case? The opening looks too small. Thanks.

    Could be. I've never paid attention to that sensor. Great for reaching the fingerprint scanner though.

    I ordered this VRS clear case with bumper. I actually really like the feel. It's a soft TPU. Feels like it would fit the phone well without being bulky. I like the design a little better than some other clear cases I have seen.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B079FJZQPZ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Also ordered the Encased Rebel. It feels similar to an Otterbox to me. It's way cheaper though so I'm not going to expect it to be as good as Otterbox, but it feels like it would offer good protection. I really like the purple color. I do like actual Otterbox cases, but the color selection sucks. If they had a purple case I would have probably gotten it, but they don't.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07B17MK9R/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I just need my phone to test these out. But so far these are keepers to me.

    Got the phones, Whitestone Dome protected, and tried out the Spigen Tough Armor case and Caseology Legion case. The Spigen is pretty awkward to hold...the angle of the edges is just wrong. It's slightly more attractive though and is a smidge thinner than the Caseology. Both have a large amount of bumper on the top and bottom of you flip your phone face down. They both seem equally durable.

    Spigen Ultra Hybrid S in clear. Hard back, with TPU around the edge. I also really like the kickstand.

    The uag Pathfinder case looks and feels awesome on the black s9+. Not much bulk at all for the protection it offers.
