5 Best Samsung Galaxy S22 Cases and Accessories of 2022

The Samsung Galaxy S22 series is the latest lineup from the Korean smartphone maker. If you’re one of the many to have purchased one, you’ll want to outfit this high-end tech slab with the best cases and accessories.

From official Samsung-released cases to chargers that let your phone charge through the charge, we’ve gone through the options to bring you the best accessories for your Samsung Galaxy S22 smartphone.

Samsung leather case

Best Samsung Galaxy Case Overall

Features: Made of genuine leather | Three color options | Comfortable design

This case is our top pick overall because it offers a leather variant fitted with the look (and smell) to prove its authenticity. The polished texture gives an elegant appearance which in my experience also ages to a unique patina. It’s more expensive than traditional cases, but it’s one of the few leather offerings worth it.

Advantages:

  • Designed to protect rear cameras
  • Comfortable and slim design

The inconvenients:

  • Expensive for a deal

Silicone case for Samsung Galaxy

Best budget case

Features: Five color options | Silky matte finish | Protects the phone from drops and bumps

When it comes to cases, you can’t go wrong with the one made by the phone manufacturer itself. In my experience, Samsung is among the best for internal accessories, and the silicone case is a long-time complement. It comes in a slew of vibrant colors, fits the Samsung Galaxy S22 like a glove, and more importantly, adds a ton of grip to the device.

Advantages:

  • Cheap
  • Does not add bulk

The inconvenients:

Samsung silicone case with strap

Better Design

Features: Two color options | Wide elegant strap | Soft to the touch

Samsung first showed off the silicone case attached to the sides of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G. And today, this handy accessory remains a fan favorite for its added comfort, grip and customizable back strap. Users new to the Galaxy S22 line can style their devices with the same case, now in navy and white finishes, and a plethora of branded straps.

Advantages:

  • You can swap out the strap to customize the look of your case
  • Makes holding your phone more comfortable

The inconvenients:

  • Additional straps cost more

Samsung Standing Protective Cover

Best Rugged Case

Features: Two color options | Drop Tested to Military Standards | Two crutches

Another timeless case, the Samsung Protective Case comes in a stealthy navy or white finish. Most importantly, the design responds well to protecting against drops and scratches with its ridged back and patterned edges. There’s enough room at the bottom to allow easy access to the S22 Ultra’s S Pen, and the new camera bump is well protected. Did I mention there’s a detachable kickstand for your mobile entertainment needs?

Advantages:

  • Two rear kickstands
  • Super sturdy and durable to protect your phone from any drops

The inconvenients:

  • Not as sleek as other options

Whitestone Dome Glass Screen Protector (set of two)

Best tempered glass option for the S22 Ultra

Whitestone Dome Glass Screen Protector (set of two)

Features: 6.8 inches | 9H hardness | Support fingerprint recognition

Among the multitude of tempered glass screen protectors on the market, only a few are suitable for curved screens like that of the S22 Ultra. Of all the brands I’ve used, Whitestone Dome Glass seems to have found the perfect formula for a consistent, sturdy, and efficient screen protector installation. A kit contains two glass protectors, a bottle of liquid adhesive, a wired UV lamp and a base station for regular application. For all that, and support for in-display fingerprint scanning, the Dome Glass is well worth its $49 price tag.

Advantages:

  • Protects your phone from scratches and cracks
  • Same app

The inconvenients:

  • Make sure your surface is flat and level before applying to your phone

Which Samsung Galaxy S22 case is made for you?

When shopping for cases and covers, it’s good to have a preference for form and function. If you’re willing to sacrifice the natural feel of the device, a rugged, protective case will protect your phone. Or you might want a slim, minimal case to retain the design of your new phone, in exchange for greater susceptibility to damage. There are also clear cases that strike the right balance between protection and appearance. It all comes down to which of the two you enjoy more.

Can the Samsung Galaxy S22 charge wirelessly through the case?

This year, all three Samsung Galaxy S22 models support 15W Qi wireless charging. As long as you use a Qi-certified charger, your phone will charge when put down.

Additionally, the Samsung Galaxy S22 range can do Wireless Powershare (reverse wireless charging), which means it can charge other wireless charging compatible devices when placed against the back cover. This of course comes at the expense of the phone’s battery.

Keep in mind that wireless charging may not work properly if you have a thick case on your phone. You may need to remove it before placing your phone on the wireless charger.
