The Limitless 5.0 case range from Mous is without a doubt the best Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus case on the market if you're looking for the ultimate protection for your device in a simple yet professional casing. Fitted with impact-absorbing AiroShock technology, these cases protect your device from not only the usual daily damages but hefty falls, scrapes, and bumps.
Mous cases are near enough indestructible, and the company is so confident in the levels of protection that these cases offer that it encourages customers to throw their phones off of a roof (opens in new tab), and offers a limited lifetime warranty on its cases. Mous cases might not be the most aesthetically pleasing for those who prioritize design, but their overall structure and protective features are unmatched.
New with the Samsung Galaxy S23 series is MagSafe compatibility! Now you no longer need an iPhone to be able to use MagSafe wireless charging and accessories. The case also boats raised edges, a high-defense camera bump, and a soft microfibre lining to keep your device safe and secure for the long run.(opens in new tab)
For those seeking a case that's as protective as Mous (above) but with a more unique design that reflects your style and incorporates pop culture, then look no further than CASETiFY. The most protective product in the CASETiFY line-up for the Samsung Galaxy S23 Series, the Ultra Impact case has been tested to withstand drops of up to 11.5 feet! To put it into perspective, this is 5x the Military Grade Standard.
CASETiFY has designed this case series with layers of strong EcoShock material fitted within the phone case lining and its four corners. This plant-based material designed and almost patented by the company is able to convert the kinetic energy of a drop or impact into heat, while the twister pattern dissipates it across the surface of the case, offering ultra protection – as the name states.
Cases from CASETiFY are also fully customizable with names, initials, patterns, and design options that include co-lab ranges with pop culture designs that include Harry Potter, Sailor Moon, Stranger Things, Dragon Ball Z, and plenty more.(opens in new tab)
Bit of a butterfingers? This more reasonably priced case from Incipio is designed with many features to protect your new Samsung Galaxy smartphone, but the key design focus is the tough tactile X grips surrounding the edges of the case to prevent your phone from slipping out of your grasp.
This cutting-edge technology has multidirectional grip assists which resist slippage in all directions, combined with impact Struts that offer 14ft of drop protection to soak up the impact shock, plus an extended height raised-edge bezel that can aid in the prevention of screen cracks and scratches.
Coated with antimicrobial technology that prevents 99.9% of surface bacteria and germs, this case will remain in new condition for as long as possible, and the strong design features and no-slip hold make it perfect for scrolling on the go.(opens in new tab)
You can't fault this cheap as chips £20 case from OtterBox. One of the best leading phone case manufacturers, OtterBox is renowned for creating super sturdy cases that are extremely high quality. The company has a range of new cases available for the Galaxy S23 series, but this case appears to be a budget-friendly bargain.
Confusingly, this case seems to have a few different aliases, described on the company website as the React Series case, whereas Amazon calls it the Sleek Series. Either name is fitting, however, as this case offers the best of both in a super slim and clear design yet with Military Standard levels of drop-protection.
Made from recycled plastics, this clear case is equipped with hygienic antimicrobial technology to fight bacteria, as well as engineering to remain crystal-clear without yellowing over time. The case is admittedly pretty basic for Otterbox, but it does boast raised screen bumpers to protect the device and anti-scratch coatings.(opens in new tab)
Peak Design is a company that caters to photographers and adventurers in every aspect, and its phone cases are no different. Featuring high-temp neodymium magnets, as well as a rubberized full-surround shock-absorbing bumper and a protective lip around the screen and camera lenses to keep your smartphone photography looking sharp.
PD cases can connect to all of the company's accessories including everything from car and bike mounts to tripods and wireless charging stands and magnetic wallets. Everyday cases from Peak design are also weatherproof, and Bluesign-approved, meaning the materials are super environmentally friendly.
The only downside to the Samsung S23 Plus range of these cases is that the strong magnets mean that the use of a Samsung S-Pen stylus accessory is not possible while your phone is in the case, and similarly, using the PowerShare feature (wireless power sharing between phones) is also not advised.(opens in new tab)
