What to look for in the best Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus cases

Why you can trust Tom's Guide Our writers and editors spend hours analyzing and reviewing products, services, and apps to help find what's best for you. Find out more about how we test, analyze, and rate.

The first thing to do when you looking for a case that fits your Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus is to confirm that the case isn't designed for another model in Samsung's flagship phone lineup. Besides the Plus, Samsung sells two other phones under the Galaxy S23 name — the 6.1-inch Galaxy S23 and 6.8-inch Galaxy S23 Ultra. As the different screen sizes would suggest, cases for those phones aren't going to fit the Galaxy S23 Plus' 6.6-inch panel. (If you do have another Samsung phone, be sure to look at our guides to the best Samsung Galaxy S23 cases and best Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra cases.)

Even cases designed for previous Plus models won't cut it. For the Galaxy S23 Plus, Samsung changed the design of the phone's back panel, so camera cutouts on older cases won't necessarily fit the new look, even if screen size is unchanged.

Once you've confirmed that the case you're considering is specifically designed for the Galaxy S23 Plus, you'll want to consider what qualities in a case are most important to you. All cases should promise some degree of drop protection — about 4 to 6 feet is pretty standard. Some of the best Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus cases we've seen take that even further, offering drop protection that approaches 200 feet.

Other factors to consider when shopping for the best Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus case include color options — you'll want one that suits your taste — and special features like screen protectors, kickstands and slots for cards and cash.
