Galaxy S9/S9+ Cases from Spigen!

Check out Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus cases from Spigen.   These are the latest cases for the Samsung flagship and depending on your needs, one of them could suit you.  I find the clear cases much more stickier and less prone to dropping while the smooth-surfaced cases have very soft feel, very therapeutic.   And if you tend to drop your phone often, check out Spigen’s thicker cases which will prevent you from cracking your brand new S9 or S9 Plus.

Which Model is Best for Galaxy S9/S9+ Root?

In this video, I explain why you should buy the international Exynos model of the Galaxy S9 or S9+ so you can enjoy full root.  If you want FULL root with ability to install custom ROMs, you will definitely want to go with an international/Exynos model, which comes with unlocked bootloader and easy to root.  Qualcomm models (U.S. & Canada) ALL have locked bootloaders (even U.S. unlocked model) so stay away from them if you want to enjoy full root.

If you have ordered your Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus, you may want to consider getting cases BEFORE you get your phone and save a bunch of money by buying them online (as you will end up paying twice more at a retail store).  Plus, the best S9/S9+ cases are usually found online.  For this video overview, Ringke sent me all of their latest cases for the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.  Amazingly, the cases fit perfectly on my Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus as they have exact same outer dimensions as the S9/S9 Plus.  Of course, the only real changes this year is the new fingerprint sensor position and you may be able to re-use your older S8/S8+ cases by cutting a hole.
