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!).

Anyone have experience on other devices with the Venoro 9H Hardness Anti Glare Anti-Scratch screen protector? The photo looks nice.

I have always gone with Spigen Tough Armor. Amazing quality. Did the same with the S9 Plus. Amazon has it for 16.99. Just ordered it.

Has anyone used the RhinoShield bumper case on S8 plus? If so, thoughts? I like the idea of a bumper so it does not add bulk and the back can be seen. However, is protection just as good? Also, with glass back exposed, I may need to get a tempered glass protector for both front and back.

Thoughts about that case?

I've never used a RhinoShield bumper, but I do have their Impact Protection screen protector on my Nexus 6P with the Speck CandyShell Grip case. That combo has saved my phone a number of times, including a face first drop on concrete. The device itself is in pristine condition.

I'm hoping Evolutive Labs has their Impact Protection screen protector available for the S9+, cause this one has sold me. I'd rather use it than tempered glass that won't offer full coverage, or affects touch response. I still haven't found one TGSP that completely works on Samsung phones that has good reviews, since I was considering the Note 8 before.

I'm getting the clear Spigen Ultra Hybrid case. Protection that doesn't hide the phone at the same time. Win win in my opinion.

I always recommend Case-Mate padded black leather folio case. About $60. Makes phone seem smaller by eliminating hard, angular corners.

I have always used Spigen cases as of late. They are my go-to case manufacturer and I've preferred their look, feel and additional features.

I used the Slim Armor with the G4, the Neo Hybrid with the ill-fated Note7 and my current go-to is the Tough Armor for the Note8 although I have a Rugged Armor as well.

I can comfortably recommend those for the S9. The Neo Hybrid if you want grip, Rugged Armor for an understated look, and the Slim/Tough Armor if you want protection without excessive bulk and a kickstand.

Of course, if protection is everything for you, then I would suggest the Spigen Pro Guard or Reventon. They are really, REALLY expensive at $60 and $65 respectively, but these are cases that eschew sleekness and design for protection. They even have a glass screen protector that attaches to the case frame.

UAG, Otterbox and even Samsung themselves make nice cases, especially if you have different aesthetic preferences or you want a different look and feel. But I have had more experience with Spigen and those are the ones I can recommend

Is there a folio/wallet style case that will also protect from drops? I probably need a case to protect from drops but like the idea of a folio case. Drop protection is more important, though.

Spigen Thin Fit Galaxy S9 Plus Case with Light but Durable Slim Profile with QNMP Metal Plate Slot for Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus (2018) - Black

I have this case on my Galaxy 8+ and was very happy,so I will stay with same on 9+
