Here’s another fantastic case from Samsung itself. This is probably one of the best looking rugged cases currently available for the Galaxy S9. The case has been tested using MIL-STD 810G-516.7 compliant which basically means the case would protect your device way better than most other cases in the market.

Most clear cases don’t offer much drop protection and are usually of fairly low quality; however, this clear case from Spigen doesn’t sacrifice anything. The case comes with Spigen’s Air Cushion Technology which helps absorb the impact during a fall.
The button cutouts and the fit is precise so your Galaxy S9 won’t be slipping out of the case by accident.
