Which first-party Samsung Galaxy S22 Case should you buy?
If you're on the hunt for more perspective (or more case options) before making your decision on which accessory to buy, here are some of our top picks amongst Samsung's first-party options.
For starters, while pricey, the Leather Cover is one of our favorites because of the feeling the material leaves in your hand and how the accessory hardly has an effect on the form factor of the phone. If protection isn't a top priority, this is the case to get! The Silicone Cover serves as the perfect alternative to this if you need a softer accessory with more color options.
The next recommendations we have are the S-View Flip Cover, or the LED Flip Cover; primarily because of the additional functionality they bring to one's smartphone experience. The neat integration of functions into each of these options is something worth appreciating, especially for those trying to avoid using their phone unnecessarily.
