The Samsung Galaxy S23 range has been dazzling us for almost a year now, and it’s still shining as brightly as ever. In fact, this smartphone is one of the best devices of the year. With cutting-edge features and a sleek design, the Galaxy S23 is a must-have for anyone who wants one of the top smartphone options.

The Samsung Galaxy S23 sports a 120Hz refresh rate, a top-quality camera suite, and the powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, which provides power galore for games, heavy-duty apps, and processing. But despite all that, it’s not immune to bumps, scratches, and drops. Your phone arrived pristine and new, and the best Samsung Galaxy S23 cases will help to keep it that way.

Speck Presidio Perfect-Clear Case

The best clear Galaxy S23 case

Pros

  • Clear
  • Great drop protection
  • Microban anti-microbial coating

Cons

  • Slippery
  • Buttons are a little stiff to push

The Samsung Galaxy S23 is a great looking device, and not everyone is happy hiding such a good design behind some thick plastic. That’s where clear cases come in. Speck’s Presidio Perfect-Clear case is an expensive case, but it justifies that price with a big list of strengths. Unlike many clear cases, the Presidio Perfect-Clear is strong. Very strong, in fact — it packs 13 feet of drop protection in, as well as protection against chemicals and antenna interference. A stain-resistant Microban coating kills 99% of bacteria on your case, and it even has a raised bezel to keep your cameras and display safe from surfaces.

It has some downsides, unfortunately. It’s on the slippery side, which is annoying for a case, and the buttons can be a little stiff to push — but outside of those fairly minor issues, this is an excellent case with a lot to offer.

Crave Dual Guard Case

The best colorful Galaxy S23 case

Pros

  • Big variety of colors
  • Dual layer construction
  • Good shock protection
  • Adds plenty of grip

Cons

  • Design isn’t the most exciting, despite the number of colors

The Galaxy S23 comes in a variety of colors, and if you want to make sure your phone matches with its case, or with your own personal color theme, then check out Crave’s Dual Guard case. It comes in numerous styles — including Berry, Aqua, Forest Green, and more — so you’re sure to find a color you love.

You also get great protection regardless of the color you pick, thanks to the Dual Guard’s dual layer construction. Made from a TPU core under a PC shell, this combination of materials provides protection against drops and shocks, as well as scratches and dirt. The edges have good grip, and while the design is a little bit on the boring side, the compact design and colorful variants mean it’s definitely the right case for someone.

Caseology Parallax Case

The best textured Galaxy S23 case

Pros

  • Great, eye-catching design
  • Grippy edges and textured back panel
  • Raised edges and good protection

Cons

  • Only provides medium protection

Your phone spends a lot of time in your hands, so it should feel as good as it looks. Caseology’s Parallax case is a doughty veteran of the accessory market and a strong inclusion in this list.

The key feature is the 3D Hexa Cube design, which offers a great feel, as well as additional grip, which is further enhanced by the TPU edging all the way around the case. Raised bezels elevate your phone from potentially dirty surfaces, and the military-grade materials give you good protection against bumps and drops. It’s not going to be as protective as a proper rugged case, but as an everyday option that protects well and looks fantastic on a desk (and feels even better), this well-priced case is a good option.

Ghostek Exec Backpack Wallet Case

The best rugged wallet Galaxy S23 case

Pros

  • Detachable wallet backpack has room for three credit cards
  • Strong protection
  • Supports all of the S23’s features

Wallet cases are amazing for allowing you to leave your wallet or purse behind and go off with just your phone. But a leather wallet case, while versatile, is often not quite as tough and rugged as a strong case. Ghostek has combined the two, and done it extremely well.

R7X protection means it’s strongly insulated against drops and bumps, has an anti-slip grip, and raised bezels to keep the display and camera lenses protected from surfaces. The backpack holds up to three credit cards, can be removed if it’s not needed, and magnets keep it secured in place when you do need it. It’s on the expensive side for sure, but with an offering of tough protection and a versatile wallet, the Ghostek Exec is a great Galaxy S23 case.

Poetic Neon Rugged Case

The best eye-catching Galaxy S23 case

Pros

  • Interesting neon style
  • Strong protection
  • Great price

Cons

  • Design may not be for everyone

Poetic is known for its Guardian case, but it has great options outside of that, and the Neon is one of those. The more understated entry in Poetic’s roster, the Neon case is very much a quieter style from the other cases — but Poetic still couldn’t resist putting in the bold orange stripe along the edges.

It’s slim, but still has plenty of protection thanks to the dual-layer construction and thorough drop-testing. It has textured sides and panels for extra grip, and raised bezels are also present to help keep your phone from resting in dirt or grit. Best of all, the price is extremely reasonable, though you may find the design isn’t for you.

Scooch Wingman Case

The best versatile Galaxy S23 case

Pros

  • Versatile clickstand
  • Well protected
  • Clear design

Cons

  • Doesn’t work with wireless charging

There’s so much to do with your new Galaxy S23, so you need a case that supports as many of those uses as possible. Scooch’s Wingman case is there for you for a variety of needs.

Scooch’s unique Clickstand folds out when needed, and can be used to provide extra grip for your device, as a horizontal or vertical kickstand, or even as a car mount in a pinch. Just insert the Clickstand into an air vent, and it should hold your device in place. It’s an exceptional case, especially since it doesn’t skimp on protection, either. It’s well protected, with drop resistance of up to ten feet. And since it’s clear, it also allows you to show off your new Galaxy S23’s design.

Spigen Thin Fit Case

The best thin Galaxy S23 case

Pros

  • Thin design
  • Compatible with wireless charging
  • Comfortable polycarbonate material

Spigen’s Thin Fit case for the Galaxy S23 is perfect for those wanting to appreciate the phone’s sleek design while protecting it from scratches, chips, and breaks. While the Thin Fit may be a little less protective than other bulkier options, it more than makes up for it in comfort.

The polycarbonate material it’s made from gives your hand something solid to grip without being too rough in your pocket. Despite its thin design, the case also uses Spigen’s Air Cushion technology to help reduce the impact of drops, keeping your Galaxy S23 safe while also looking sleek.

Otterbox Defender Series Case

The best durable Galaxy S23 case

Pros

  • Excellent phone protection
  • Detachable clip holster
  • Reputable brand

Cons

  • Poor color options
  • Expensive

Otterbox is known for making high-quality, long-lasting cases that keep phones safe even after taking the hardest hits and highest falls. The Galaxy S23 Otterbox from the Defender Series is no exception and offers the same quality-assured protection that the company is known for.

In addition to the case, buyers get a detachable clip that allows them to secure their phone to a pocket or bag or simply use the clip as a makeshift stand for horizontal viewing. The S23 Otterbox is a little bit more expensive than other cases on this list. However, its durability and longevity can help justify the pricy buy-in cost.

Samsung S-View Wallet Case

The best wallet Galaxy S23 case

Pros

  • Wallet insert
  • Screen-protecting front flap with display window cutout
  • Solid color options

Now that phones have joined wallets and keys as one of the things most people won’t leave the house without, some feel that they’re beginning to feel overwhelmed by the number of things they have to keep track of in their pockets. Luckily, the Samsung S-View Wallet Case combines your wallet with your phone to reduce the number of things weighing your pockets down.

The S-View case comes with a screen-protecting front flap that has a display window cutout, meaning that if you’re glancing at your phone to check the time or see a notification, you won’t need to go through all the trouble of opening the flap and revealing your wallet. It’s a solid two-in-one accessory — but be warned: the S-View Wallet Case doesn’t provide any drop protection, so you’ll need to be more careful with your phone than if you picked up any of the other cases on this list.

Incipio Duo Case

The best dual-layer Galaxy S23 case

Pros

  • Two-piece protective case
  • Antimicrobial
  • Lifetime warranty

Incipio’s Duo cases are known for being solid picks for those looking for a non-bulky case that still offers great drop protection. The Duo for the Galaxy S23 offers drop protection of up to 12 feet, an impressive distance for a case so small, thanks to its two-piece design that’s meant to absorb as much shock as possible.

In addition to its protective qualities, the Duo case is made from recycled materials and is antimicrobial. That means you can bring your phone to your ear without worrying about what harmful, unseen microbes might be living on it. Unfortunately, the case is only offered in black, blue, and red. However, the Duo is a great pick if you’re looking for a minimalist case that still offers plenty of protection.

Samsung Clear Gadget Case

The best unique Galaxy S23 case

Pros

  • Multifunctional rear grip
  • See-through design
  • Official Samsung product
  • Works with other Samsung case accessories

Cons

  • No drop protection
  • Expensive despite lack of protective features

Grip accessories can make holding phones one-handed much more comfortable, and the Samsung Gadget Case is designed specifically with comfort, usability, and versatility in mind. The completely see-through case features a detachable, multifunctional rear grip that acts as grip support and as a kickstand for horizontal viewing that adds a level of comfort to using the Galaxy S23 that isn’t there on most other cases. Furthermore, you can pop off the rear grip and attach other official accessories (such as a miniature tripod).

While the comfort factor is top-notch, the case is lacking in a lot of the protection features that other cases on this list sport. Obviously, any case is going to help protect the back of your phone from scratches and chips; however, the Gadget Case doesn’t provide any sort of impact reduction for drops. That said, if you use the rear grip well, you may experience fewer drops in general.

The Nillkin Camshield case for the Galaxy S23.

Nillkin Camshield Bounce Case

The best protective Galaxy S23 case

Pros

  • Great camera protection
  • Strong grip
  • Dual-layer construction is durable

Cons

  • Doesn’t work with wireless charging

Even the most protective cases tend to leave the camera lenses exposed, which is a strange omission when you see how easy it’s been for Nillkin to close up that particular vulnerability. Nillkin’s Camshield case does exactly what the name suggests, with a specialized sliding cover for the camera that keeps your lenses safe from harm when you’re not actively taking pictures. A dual-layer build of TPU and PC means it’s protective against a range of hazards, and it has corner bumpers to protect it even further against drops and bumps.

It’s not perfect. The camera shield means quick shots are slower to take, so if you’re used to quickly pulling out your phone and snapping as fast as you can, you’ll need to get used to the shield being in the way. Also, it doesn’t work at all with wireless charging, which is a bother if you’re a fan.

Ringke Onyx Anti-slip Case

The best grip Galaxy S23 case

Pros

  • Great grip
  • Great style and texture
  • Great price

Cons

  • Protection could be better

Ringke is a well-known and trusted name in the accessory business, so there’s no surprise it jumped on the Samsung Galaxy S23 very early. The Onyx is as close to a basic case as Ringke tends to get, and it doesn’t have the usual stand-out design we’ve come to expect. Regardless, it’s a great case with a relatively plain look, but one that feels amazing in the hand due to the sandstone-style texture. As such, it imparts fantastic levels of grip, and that’s helped by the flexible TPU material. That TPU also helps to bolster the case against bumps and drops, though it’s not likely to be much help against big bad drops in the way a more rugged case would be.

It has all of Ringke’s usual features, too — including the QuikCatch lanyard attachment point and raised edges for the camera and display, and it all comes at a very good price. This is a great choice if you loved OnePlus’s sandstone cases or love the idea of a lanyard attachment.

Spidercase Waterproof Case with Built-in Screen Protector

The best waterproof Galaxy S23 case

Pros

  • Waterproof
  • Rugged and protective
  • Allows access to all features

Cons

  • Adds some additional bulk

The Samsung Galaxy S23 has an IP68 water-resistance rating, but there’s no harm in doubling up on protection when there’s a flagship phone at stake. The Spidercase case offers a wide range of additional protection for your smartphone, making it a great choice for the more adventurous. It’s water, snow, and dustproof, and has some excellent protective qualities that make it shockproof as well. A shock-absorbing bumper keeps your device safe from bumps and drops, and the combo of the hard back plate and built-in screen protector gives you great all-around protection.

It doesn’t interfere with any of your features, including wireless charging, which is a big bonus. It’s slim for a rugged case, but it still adds a good amount of additional bulk to your device — especially around the edges. It’s also not stylish, though the clear back allows your phone’s design to shine through.

Armor-X MX-S Waterproof Case with Carabiner & X-Mount

The best rugged alternative Galaxy S23 case

Pros

  • Very protective and rugged
  • Waterproof
  • Multiple mounting options

Armor-X specializes in offering some of the most versatile and protective cases on the market, and this case is no different. It’s fully waterproof, offers drop protection of up to 4 feet, and there’s built-in screen protection and port covers too. Armor-X’s range of mounting options backs up that all-around protection, and you can use the X-Mount to attach your phone to a belt clip, bike mount, and armband (purchased separately). There’s even a carabiner you can use if you want to attach your phone to a bag or strap.

It’s on the larger side where cases are concerned, though if you’re shopping for something this protective, you may not mind so much. It’s also extremely expensive, which is a much larger barrier to entry. But if you’re happy to invest (and invest further for the X-Mount system), this is an excellent rugged case.
