It may not bear the Note name, but the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra carries on its spirit and garaged S Pen. Powerful, productive, and quite pretty in its green and burgundy colorways, your S22 Ultra deserves the best case you can get. After all, it is one of the best Android phones on the market. Whether you want heavy-duty protection or want grip without the bulk, this selection of the best Galaxy S22 Ultra cases has you covered – literally.
Protect your phone with the best Galaxy S22 Ultra cases
While there are many heavy-duty kickstand cases for the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, few look as dignified as the Poetic Spartan, with leather-textured panels and deeper blue and green backplates to better match the S22 Ultra’s colorways, but fiery red and neutral greys are also available.

Slim but sturdy
While there are thinner clear cases around, you should opt for something with a decent drop-protection rating for the Ultra’s larger size. The Lucent keeps it thin and comes in either clear or translucent pink or blue, which I fancy way too much.
Grippy, great colors
Textured stripes on the sides of the Parallax help you keep it firmly in hand while you tap, text, or doodle away with your S Pen. Both the burgundy and the Midnight green match exquisitely, though I wish the Matte Black had a red accent (like the Pixel 6 model).
Spigen Cryo Armor
Spigen’s first gaming accessory is this literally cool case. Designed to keep your phone from overheating, this is the one to grab if you’re constantly gaming on your phone or tend to use your phone in hotter environments.
CaseBorne R Series
Most clear cases aim to be as invisible as possible, but CaseBorne instead focuses on drop-protection. This Galaxy S22 case should help your phone survive 12-foot drops while letting you show off those darling colors.
Galaxy S22 Ultra Silicone Cover with Strap
The strap upon the back of this case acts both as a phone grip and an easy method of personalization. You can buy alternative straps in various colors, patterns, and artist designs, and licensed designs are on the way, too.
Nillkin CamShield Armor
Put a ring on it
This more robust version of Nillkin’s camera-cover case adds a ring grip that doubles as a kickstand when you’re not using it to keep your S22 Ultra steady in your hand. Air cushion corners add extra protection against shattering drops.
Slim and secure
This flexible case won’t add any bulk to your Ultra, but it will add grip and protect your phone against scratches, slips, and smaller drops. The colors are all cool and muted while the matte finish obscures scuffs.
SUPCASE UB Pro
Tough as nails
Do you put your phone through impossible situations? Do you need a case that will keep your S22 Ultra alive even when it crosses paths with cars or lawnmowers? SUPCASE delivers on its durability with the solid, dependable UB Pro.
Your Galaxy S22 Ultra will stay safe thanks to the dual-layer protection from the Incipio Duo, and the antimicrobial treatment on the case helps kill off 99% of surface bacteria. The planet will also thank you since the case is made from recycled materials.
Spigen Liquid Air
Like the Parallax, the Liquid Air is another favorite of ours from last year, and the S22 Ultra’s version is better than ever. The sides and back feature different textures and the thin profile keeps it manageable in the hand.
Bold and beautiful
This two-piece clear case offers the same robust protection you’d see from an OtterBox or Poetic case while still letting you show off the slick Galaxy design. While available in red and black, the purple best contrasts the Ultra’s shades.
Arae Polyurethane Leather Wallet Case Cover
Keep it together
The Galaxy S22 Ultra already holds your life on it, it might as well hold your cash and cards, too. Four card slots and a cash flap sit inside the folio cover, and you can attach a wrist strap for added security.
Caseology Nano Pop
This case is only slightly thicker than Anccer’s Ultra Thin, but it offers double the protection and double the grip. The cameras are expertly protected by the accent-colored modules, and both the classic Blueberry Navy and Evo Green serve excellent looks.
Anccer Ultra Thin
This thin hardshell case won’t add any bulk to your S22 Ultra, but it will help guard that beautiful back against scuffs and scratches. Don’t expect any real impact protection here; there’s not enough mass in the case to absorb one.
VRS Design Damda Glide Hybird
Keet it all safe
This card slot case can fit four cards and cash, twice that of most competitors, and the kickstand affixed to the back of the semi-automatic sliding cover works vertically and horizontally for easier reading or watching.
Incipio Kate Spade New York Defensive Hardshell
Who says phone cases aren’t fashionable? Get excellent protection for your phone and antimicrobial surface protection in a slim footprint, with one of four Kate Spade designs. The button and port covers make sure all aspects of your phone look as good as your case does.
Incipio Organicore Clear
For the planet
Not only do you get excellent dual-layer protection in a clear package to show off your phone in, but you are also helping the planet because the case is made from 100% compostable materials derived from plants.
Why you need one of the best S22 Ultra cases
The Galaxy S22 Ultra is one of the best Android phones and is one of the largest and the heaviest of the S22 series. With more mass means it falls with more force, so drop protection ends up being paramount for Galaxy S22 cases. Heavy-duty cases like the Supcase UB Pro, Poetic Spartan, and CaseBorne Series R add in as much drop protection as they can while still trying to meet the other needs of their users: visibility and functionality.
Speaking of functionality, even if kickstand cases aren’t usually your jam, you might want to give them fresh consideration for the Galaxy S22 Ultra. This phone is basically a mini-tablet; being able to drop it up with notes, app feeds, or with a Zoom call, it comes in very handy very quickly.
If you prefer your protection less tank-like and more subtle, the Caseology Parallax and Spigen Liquid Air both offer grip and air cushions in more svelte packages, though I can’t draw my eyes away from the Caseology Nano Pop’s Evo Green colorway. Don’t forget, while a case keeps most of the outer surfaces safe from drops, be sure to get one of the best screen protectors for the Galaxy S22 Ultra to keep the display safe.
