Ringke has been making cases for quite a long time, and has a reputation for making quality products at low prices. They have a wide range of offerings for just about every major device, and I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing many of them over the past year. Today, I’m here with a case selection review of three of their products for the brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 9: The Ringke Fusion, The Ringke Air, and the Ringke Onyx.

Ringke Onyx: The Ringke Onyx is one of my favorite cases that Ringke has to offer, and I’ve personally used several iterations of this case for multiple devices, dating way back to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The Onyx case is unique because it’s a TPU style case but it has a really cool brushed metal look to it, along with oppositional angle bezels on the back that closely resembles carbon fiber. The bottom and top of the back of the case have a serrated feel to them that adds texture, grip, and just plain looks cool. In addition to the looks, it’s also quite protective. It has MIL-STD drop protection, a raised lip on the front of the case around the bezel that protects your screen from surface contact if you place it face down on a flat surface. Additionally, the camera and fingerprint sensor openings are recessed, which keeps them safe as well if you set it down. The buttons are a delight and are easy to press, and have plenty of snap! It really is a great case and I wholeheartedly recommend it for anyone looking for a sleek case that looks great, and offers fairly decent protection for your brand new device. It even has a wrist strap to loop through the built-in lanyard loop, so you can tote your phone around while you’re out and about, without fear of dropping it or losing it – this makes it convenient for when you’re in a position where you want to have your phone and camera available and don’t want to keep pulling it out of your pocket. The Onyx case is available in Black and Purple, and is currently priced at $9.99 on Amazon. It even qualifies for Amazon Prime 2-day Shipping. https://www.amazon.com/Ringke-Compa...ag=hawk-future-20&ascsubtag=UUacUvbUpU6325975


Ringke Air: The Ringke Air case is probably my favorite clear TPU style case, and I have also used this one on several devices as well. This is the case that I am currently sporting on my Note 9, and it comes in three different colors: Clear, Black (looks more like a smoke color), and Blue. The Air case is great because it allows you to have a lightweight case on your phone that doesn’t alter the form factor, but still gives you MIL-STD drop protection. All versions of this case are clear or translucent, which allows you to show off your gorgeous new Note 9 device without having to compromise on protection. Of course, being a lightweight and thin-style case, it won’t protect from serious drops or things that might really damage your phone… but when used in conjunction with a quality screen protector, it gives adequate protection from minor bumps or small drops that would normally ding or scratch up your $1000 device. As with all of the other Ringke cases, it also has the slightly raised bezel on the front for added protection for your screen, recessed cutouts on the back for the fingerprint sensor, and a lanyard loop in case you want to attach a wrist strap. It’s available on Amazon for the low price of $8.99, and also qualifies for Prime 2-day shipping. https://www.amazon.com/Ringke-Compa...ag=hawk-future-20&ascsubtag=UUacUvbUpU6325975


Ringke Fusion-X: The Ringke Fusion-X is the most protective style case that Ringke has to offer for not only the Note 9, but also for many other devices. I have been sporting this one on my LG G7, as well as by BlackBerry KEY2. It’s a really solid case that offers up to 4ft of MIL-STD drop protection, which is better than the other two cases in this review. It comes in two different colors: Black, and Navy. The Fusion X has reinforced bumpers all the way around, with extra reinforcement on the bumpers that extends into the clear backplate as well. One of the nice features about this case is that even though it’s a protective style case, it still has a very small form factor and has a great feel to it. One of the classic features of the Fusion-X case is that the bumpers are colored, but the back of the case is clear, which means that you can still show off the beautiful underlying color of your new Note 9. And if that’s not your cup of tea, you can get a reflective insert that doubles as a mirror, or put a favorite photo or some stickers inside of there for your own unique personalization – this really is a neat feature. The cutouts are of course complimentary to the design and allow for easy access, the buttons are light and responsive, and the bezels around the front of the screen are also elevated for that added layer of protection for your screen. Complimenting the rest of the protective design, the cutouts for the fingerprint sensor and cameras on the back are also recessed to keep them safe when you place the phone down on a flat surface. The Fusion X is available on Amazon for $12.99, and of course qualifies for Prime 2-day shipping. https://www.amazon.com/Ringke-Compa...ag=hawk-future-20&ascsubtag=UUacUvbUpU6325975


Conclusion: Ringke has several quality offerings for the Note 9, and this is just a sample of three of the five available cases that Ringke has to offer for this device. Each one of these cases is unique in their own regard, but all of them come with the 1-year manufacturer warranty, and a reliable history for quality, and they look fantastic. They are also well priced and provide a solid alternative to many of the much more pricey cases out on the market.
