The Galaxy S22 series is one of Samsung’s best-selling products this year. If you buy a new Galaxy S22, you will have three different sizes to choose from. So your purchase will depend on which model you choose. For example, the flagship GalaxyThe smartphone has a 6.8-inch screen and is the heaviest model. I think the best box for a smartphone of this size is the one with an integrated stand, so you can lift it from time to time.
The same can be said for the little ones(With a 6.6-inch screen), we like to refer to as the average child in the S22 rankings, but also standard (6.1 inches) is the most “compact” of the trio. But everyone has their own idea of what features make up the best Samsung box – and the best case for a smartphone in general – and it depends on everyone’s unique needs. So my choices come in a variety of styles, from clear box styles to opaque ones, from thinner models to tighter armor boxes and folio wallet boxes.
Note that some of the recommendations for this Galaxy S22 series case are based on my experience using almost the same models as previous Galaxy smartphones.. The following best Samsung box options are included in the starting price for a line showing multiple smartphone boxes. Make sure you get a box that fits the specific model of the S22. The same goes for tempered glass for extra protection – adjust the size to the specific model of the S22, whether Ultra, Plus or standard.
I regularly update this best Samsung case with new options as more candidates come.
Leading body manufacturer Speck brings the Galaxy S22 a selection of protective box options (from left to right in the picture above), including Presidio Perfect-Clear Ombre, Presidio2 Grip and Presidio Perfect-Clear.
All new models have very good drop protection (13-16 feet depending on the model), as well as Speck’s Microban antimicrobial coating. Housings start at $ 40 in a variety of colors. Sometimes Speck offers discounts to first-time buyers on its website.
Now, Zagg’s British maker Gear4 is making boxes out there with OtterBox and Speck. They are all covered with the company’s D3O shock absorber material and have curved edges to protect your phone. From left to right, Copenhagen (13 feet), Denali (16 feet), Milan (13 feet) and Crystal Palace (13 feet) are shown. All use recycled plastic in their construction, but Copenhagen, made of 52% plant material, is technically the most environmentally friendly.
Prices range from $ 30 to $ 50 for the best Denali, which is probably my favorite Gear4 case.
If you’re looking for a cheap transparent case for your new Galaxy S22, Spigen’s Ultra Hybrid is a good value at around $ 15-18, depending on the version you buy. I like the Ultra Hybrid Si (second from left in the picture) with integrated support. The Neo Hybrid on the far right is a pretty simple case, while the Cryo Armor (second from the right) is a $ 22 three-tiered “game” box designed to “absorb and dissipate heat from your phone during game hours.”
No drop rating is given for these Samsung phone cases, but with the exception of the thinnest models, most Spigen cases offer reasonable protection. If you want a challenging body with decent protection, get one of its Armor models.
It should be noted that many of these cheaper transparent cases have a tendency to turn yellow and deteriorate over time, which makes them less transparent. But they are cheap enough that if this happens and you will not object to a change when.
The company’s super-protective Defender series body is available for all Galaxy S22 models, but most people want something less bulky. I like the Symmetry series boxes – they are thin with curved edges and make them smooth and a good mix of preservatives. However, I liked the more protective Commuter Series thanks to the handles on the back and sides, as well as the raised edges on the front that help protect your screen. The raised frame acts as a screen protector to protect your screen from scratches, and the camera module receives the same treatment.

Rockform has been making rigid smartphone boxes for many years, and in addition to their durability, their main feature is the ability to use them with a variety of devices sold separately, including bicycles, cars and motorcycles.
Rockform’s boxes have removable magnets, and if you remove the inserted center magnet, it’s compatible with wireless charging. “While the low magnet is still untouchable, you can still wirelessly charge using the magnetic mount and all of our devices,” says Rockform.
Available in black, burgundy and light gray, Samsung’s leather body in a slim package offers a nice soft touch with decent edge protection. Unfortunately, there is no support, but if you are looking for a clean, elegantly designed case, this is the Samsung case. It also offers decent protection for the rear camera lens. Personally, I like burgundy.

For the Galaxy S22, Mouse, based in the UK, brings the Limitless 3.0 case ($ 60) to the Galaxy S22. It comes in several different eye-catching styles, all covered with AiroShock material, and the company says it provides excellent protection in a sleek design. They look durable and all include a lifetime warranty.
Mous’ Limitless 3.0 boxes are compatible with the company’s Limitless 3.0 accessories. This includes a magnetic purse on the back of the phone case and a few connectors, one of which is a vent for your car.
It should also be noted that the only thing I have seen with Limitless 3.0 boxes is that there is a SIM card storage slot inside the smartphone case for international travelers who have the habit of changing SIMs.

Cyrill is a sub-brand of Spigen, and like Spigen, its bodies generally sell for less than $ 20. Cyrill doesn’t have the same choice for the Galaxy S22 as it does for the iPhone 13, but it does have some protective transparent boxes with a floral design (pictured right), as well as a Brick Matte Finish body (blue and red). the boxes in the photo) have a soft touch. The back has a raised frame that provides extra protection for the camera lens. There are raised lips in the corners of the case.

If you have a large screen phone, it may be a good idea to get extra screen protection with a folio box with slots for multiple credit cards. Otterbox’s folio box, Strada, is beautifully designed with a magnetic cover. Its only drawback is that it does not become a support for watching videos. So far, it is only black.
Otterbox also makes the Strada Via folio, but I prefer this model.
Especially with the two larger models of the Galaxy S22, I see that having an integrated support is a nice feature, and the ESR support box is as affordable as you get for about $ 20. It should drop to about $ 15 over time.
Available in several color options, the Raptic’s Shield is cheaper than the premium cases that compete with the Speck and OtterBox, and is generally quite good value. There is a 10-meter drop protection, as well as antimicrobial treatment.

Lifeproof’s Wake box is made of recycled ocean plastic. It has an attractive design, but I wouldn’t call it super tough – it’s not locked from the bottom and protects against a 6-foot drop. (Note that some of the cases on this list have a higher fall protection rating.) Lifeproof offers a $ 15 discount on your first order on its website.
Samsung’s Clear Standing Cover is not a luxury, but it has a protective transparent body with an integrated support. You can lift your phone horizontally or vertically using a solid-looking stand (it is larger than Spigen’s integrated stand). Unfortunately, it is not in stock at the moment, but I hope it will be sent soon.
