Best Galaxy Note 9 cases and covers you can get right now

The freshly-squeezed Galaxy Note 9 is already strutting its stuff on the pre-order runway, and many of you may have already jumped the gun and clicked the buy button as soon as the phone became available to order. On your way to procuring Samsung's best phone yet, it would be an excellent idea to grab a case for wrapping it in, given the phone's pricing range.

Despite that the Note 9 is covered head to toe in tough Gorilla Glass, the material isn't strong enough to withstand a good, heartfelt meet-up with a slab of concrete. It's also inevitably going to scratch with the usual wear and tear if you handle your phone naked and afraid like Samsung made it.

Should you listen to the voice of reason, and decide to dress up your $1000 phablet, we have compiled for you a few options you can grab while you wait for the Note 9 to arrive on your doorstep so that you have it locked and loaded from day one. Sorry, Gorilla Glass 6 will seemingly make a cameo on other phones, though whichever the generation, these glass-y phones of today are no match for the pavement anyway, so wrap it up.

Official Galaxy Note 9 cases and prices

They say the best things in life are the official accessory lineups straight from the manufacturers, and Samsung doesn't disappoint here, offering every case category under the sun save for a battery one, but Mophie took care of that

The official S-View Flip Cover, Silicone Cover Case, LED View Cover Case, Leather Wallet, and Rugged Protective Cover Case are available in colors like blue, white, lavender, brown, black and red, covering all the Note 9 body colors, and then some. There is a tough stand protective case, too, as well as a clear silicone one that we found to be one of the best wrappers you can find for your Samsung flagship, fitting perfectly.

Best Note 9 thin silicone cases

Spigen Spigen Galaxy Note 9 Case  ($19.99)

Spigen's Liquid Crystal case is a safe choice that is not too expensive and that provides basic protection in a thin and light package. The case can be had for just $11 off Amazon, and the clear silicone reveals the colors of the Galaxy Note 9 itself. 

Speck Presidio Stay Clear case for Galaxy Note 9 ($44.95)

Speck's cases are with the quality expected from Samsonite products, and with the respective unpleasant price tag. 

It's a clear and slim phone case that gives 8-foot drop protection, but the biggest added value is that it won't (supposedly) yellow and discolor with time. 

A limited lifetime warranty ensures you can swap it if it doesn't perform as advertised, though we aren't sure the discoloration is covered, too.

Case-Mate Note 9 SHEER CRYSTAL case ($34.99)

If you want a bit more spice in your casing, the glittering effect of Case-mate's Sheer Crystal series will shimmer on your Note 9, all the while it provides a 10-feet drop protection. 

The case works with wireless chargers and sports enhanced anti-scratch technology. 

The only downside is the current pricing, for which you can get three no-name wrappers, but it should soon be available at a discount, plus the tag is not worse than Samsung's official case prices, for what's that worth protecting your $1000 investment.

Best rugged Note 9 cases

Spigen Tough Armor for Galaxy Note 9 ($39.99)

Want more protection, but not more splurging for Samsung's official tough protective case with a kickstand? Enter Spigen's Tough Armor for the Galaxy Note 9 rugged wrapper in a fairly thin form. With a dual-layer structure that provides Spigen's protective Air Cushion Technology upon drops, the Tough Armor also has a built-in kickstand is for those long video sessions on the huge, HDR-compliant display of the Note 9. Take it camping or on a night out, and it should give you a piece of mind, more so that the Amazon pricing below is much lower than the official Spigen tag.

UAG PLYO Galaxy Note 9 case ($39.95)

The Urban Armor's Plyo line may seem pricey at the official tag, but it's keeping your ruggedized Galaxy Note 9 protection slim and elegant, at least for the rugged casing standards. 

Despite that you can still see the Note 9's pretty bod inside it, the Plyo offers an armored shell of a light composite, with impact-resistant soft core and air-soft corner cushioning. 

Large, tactile buttons and screen protection lips round up the rough but elegant offering, and we particularly like this here crimson hue.

over $20 is too much for a case.
