Samsung Galaxy S10 / S9 Case to protect EDGE

Hi Guys,

I have read similar posts but mine is slightly different, i want a case that will protect the EDGE properly as ive had a decent Spigen armour case on S7 Edge but still had a minor accident and the Edge has cracked , I dont care about seeing the edge I just wanted it protected properly with a rim round the front of the phone like ive had on previous flat screen Samsung's. I have seen a Doria case that might work but i wanted peoples thoughts an experiences.

    Won't the case you are after prevent you from getting your finger right to the edge thus making the edge features redundant?

    I dont really use many edge features in all honesty.

    The Incpio case has saved my phone many times.

    You could get a Samsung S10e and a Spigen ThinFit case…. very slim, best materials, decent protection, no Edge-worries.

    But if you're adamant about the S10 or the S10+ then you probably need to get one of the thick/bulky cases (like OtterBox) to cover up the Edge. There are Housings as well, which clamp together to protect the back, sides, and give you a plastic front protector (they scratch easily though). I just had a quick look, and most regular cases, do in fact, leave the Edge fully exposed (again for that "edge features" no-one really uses). Have a look at the Spigen UltraHybrid S, even that seems to only half-cover the edge but not full-protect it.

    Otherwise, I was going to say get the LG G8, as its practically a slightly bigger S10e or an S10 with a flat front/back. However, I just found out due to low demand, Australia will not be getting the LG G8. We might (in low quantities) get the LG G8s-ThinQ instead, which seems like a slightly inferior model, with less chance of custom firmware and less chance for local sales/deals, so I suggest either stick with Samsung or wait for other competitors.

      Thanks for the detailed info mate, yeah i might just have to try a few out and see how they are protection wise.

    Ive had the 360 cases on my S8+ (cheapies from Aliexpress) and my phone screen is all good. Dont use the Edge features much either.

      Do they fit nicely, any issues with touchscreen / fingerprint ?

        Well the S8+ fingerprint is on the back, so I never use it anyway. and the S10+ fingerprint also doesnt work well for me normally so can't comment on that either. But no problems with the touchscreen as it only covers the edges?

    Unfortunately none of them protect the edge 100%, its extremely vulnerable. Already been through screen replacement once. Now I have this: https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B079BS4ZQ4/ref=ppx_yo_d... case, pretty happy with it and seems to provide the best possible protection from the many I have tried. It also has inbuilt screen protector.
