10 Best Minimal Cases For Samsung S9 and S9 Plus

On Monday TVG travelled to the Sydney Opera House to experience the new Samsung S9 Plus and its standout feature, an updated camera with super slow-mo, pro features and fantastic new low light capabilities. What hasn’t changed from the outgoing S8 however, is the amount of glass incorporated into the design. And as I’m currently nursing an S8 with both a smashed front and rear, despite being in a case, I’ll be the first to tell you no one should invest in the new Samsung S9 or Samsung S9 Plus without a case – which is why I haven’t touched the new unit since Monday. Today I found some time to research some minimal case options and thought I’d compile a list of best minimal cases for Samsung S9 releases.

Griffin Survivor Strong – $29.95

Survivor Strong’s dual-material snap-on shell uses Griffin’s exclusive Impact Dispersion System to protect your Galaxy within its shatter-resistant shell and keeps it safe from impacts. It’s non-slip, slim, light, robust and cheap!

Samsung Official LED View Wallet Case – $92.95

Official Original Genuine Samsung LED Notification Flip Cover Case for Samsung

I got hands-on with this case at the launch event and was really impressed with the combination of tech, style and protection. The phone clips into a sleek and durable case while a cover flips over the screen with a dot matrix LED notification system that allows you to view notifications and answer calls without opening it. Unfortunately, it comes at a price.

Totallee Thin – $27.14

Zero branding and just 0.02 inches thick make the Totallee thin case one of the Best Minimal Cases For Samsung S9 on the market. Being so thin, it’s not built to withstand mighty drops but its tough polypropylene construction will hold up to regular wear and tear.

With an executive and premium style, the Olixar Attache case is designed with a leather-effect, which provides your Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus with tough and rugged protection.
