So you just got a shiny new Galaxy S9?

The new Samsung Galaxy S9 is made of a tougher build than its predecessor, the S8. That said, it’s still quite the fragile device. And there’s no worse feeling than the experience of dropping and cracking your brand new phone.

Speck has come out with several cases for the S9 that offer plenty of protection, and many of them are their classics reimagined for the Galaxy S9.

For instance, there is the Presidio Grip with its no slip-grip for $39.95. This case is a great addition to the S9 since the S9 can easily become slippery to grip, making it easy to drop. The Presidio Grip is available in a choice of four colors, with my personal favorite being the “fig purple” option.

If you have the lilac Galaxy S9 model, then chances are you want to show it off. In that case, the Presidio Clear case is a great fit. It also retails for $39.95.

For those who prefer wallet style cases, there is the Presidio Folio leather case for $54.95. This last case is pricey, but it offers plenty of protection. Available in black or brown, this case has been drop tested to protect your phone from drops up to 10 feet. In addition to its privacy screen cover, it also houses a convenient card slot on the inside.

It’s worth noting that all of Speck’s cases come with a lifetime warranty, which helps justify their pricing.
