I just got an S9 (had an S7 Edge)...basically as a gift, so I was not able to pick the color...and this one is purple :-\
I have been trying to find a case or skin to cover up the purple but everything still seems to leave the area around the camera uncovered (and of course the finger print sensor too).
Any recommendations on something that I can use to cover up the purple so I am not walking around with a "pretty" phone? thanks!

I ended up with the purple one too. I didn't really care since I was planning on having a cover. I ordered the Speck CandyShell case in Gray it should be here tomorrow. When I put it on I'll let you know if the fingerprint still works. In the meantime you rock that purple.

I was checking the DBRAND skins and thought they would be perfect...

I guess I shouldn't complain about a gift...just hoping to upgrade it a little bit.
(Here is the DBRAND skin on the purple S9...I just picked a skin color that would help the purple stand out for explanation purposes)

I was going to suggest Dbrand too. Now a days, nobody cares that you have a purple phone. Here I'll show you. Gift the phone to me and I'll use it, :)

Did you try the black camo skin they have? I think it looks pretty slick with the purple. I want to try it but I have a clear skin on mine because I love the purple color and don't want to cover it up.

Best case I have ever used perfect feel and although there are 4 color's the black or gray solve the problem. Very comfortable minimal size and the grip is fantastic. Just do a web search.

Samsun OEM Silicone Cover
Soft and super smooth to the touch, the Silicone Cover enhances the wonderful grip of your Galaxy S9 or S9+. Available in several colors that complement the design, this is a case you'll love to hold and see.

you got it as a gift and your still complaining... wow.

Wow...so grumpy!

As I said, "BASICALLY as a gift" because the cell warranty company is upgrading me to the S9 since they didn't have an S7 to replace mine with. Purple was the only color available, so I took it before they could downgrade me back to an S7.

Anyways, I am trying out this case...it looks to cover up the most. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07992Q37R/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Thanks for the positive replies.

We understood your dilemma, but as you admitted, you picked a skin that makes the purple stand out. As @Anastayja1 stated, maybe if you go with a darker skin, it will help tone down the purple color.

I'm sorry, I meant that I picked that skin online to demonstrate what I was talking about with the purple showing even with a skin. I didn't buy that...just wanted to show what I was referring to.

The other thing to consider is a case (Otterbox/Lifeproof) that offers maximum protection. You can practically cover all of the phone with a good case and you may not see any color at all.
