The Premium Option

Made from genuine leather, this official accessory for Galaxy S22 features a design that wraps around every edge and corner of the smartphone.

The rectangular cutout in the top right corner of the case provides access to small interactive elements that will give you the ability to control actions on your phone without having to flip open the cover every time. This can also prevent unintended usage of your smartphone. It is available in three colors, Burgundy, White, and Black.

Which Samsung Galaxy S22 case should you buy?

If you've gone through this list and still haven't come to a decision on which case to buy, here are some of our thoughts that might help you form a better opinion.

The SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle Pro is arguably one of the best options on the market when it comes to protection in rugged environments. The additional components on the case, like its kickstand and holster attachment, also bring increased value, in our opinion.

But if you are looking for a slimmer option that brings a similar degree of protection, the UAG Civilian is likely to be worth your time. Although, the Spigen Liquid Air is the perfect foil to this case if need an option without the additional flair.

Speaking of Samsung's official cases, the Silicone Cover with Strap is one to keep your eye on if you're someone who often has their phone in hand and would like to ensure it doesn't fall anywhere. And the next pick we'd recommend would have to be the S-View Flip Cover because of the additional functionality it brings along with its protective wraparound design.
