    The #1 thing I want from whatever case I get is a good functioning kickstand. Specifically one that is stable in portrait mode which the one I've had since I've had my Note 10 + is not.

    +1(is this still a thing???) to Spigen. i will not be getting this phone, but all of my phones have always started out with Spigen's armor cases.

    Never cared for kickstands, and I want minimal, but I usually end up with a Spigen. That said, I have a generic fake leather case from Amazon Vine right now that I love.

    I just use cases to give me a little friction and to have less worries setting the phone down on various surfaces.

    Went with Spigen and the damned thing showed up already. Interesting to compare the size of this to my S21 Ultra phone and current case.

    Whatever case you get... just get one! I'm surprised by how much abuse this thing took before finally dying... but you'll definitely want something to protect those cameras!

    I got a nice case but the whole area where the cameras reside was just open so I also bought a pack of 3 glass camera covers.

    Yes, as I checked the camera outer glass breaks when the phone dropped from a pocket height so I thought about covering it too, thanks for the reply!

    The Darling Bride is STILL waiting for her S22 Ultra (which she pre-ordered on a reservation we made Day One) - but hers is the red one. She's looking for a case that will protect the phone but still let that red show through. She also needs some sort of grip pattern on the sides, making it harder to slip out of her hands. Any ideas?

    That is always the struggle aint it... I feel like I saw some generics on Amazon that were transparent, but they were super bulky... The Dbrand grip case would be awesome, but pretty sure there is no transparent option.

    I'm in the same boat, pre-ordered day one but the green. I actually already have 2 cases though.

    What cases do you have? I might get skins on the back instead of bulky cases!

    I have the Caseology Parallax for normal use and a “generic” Amazon one for work with a sliding camera cover. Can’t give an opinion as I don’t have the phone yet.

    Nice of you to get the protection before the phone, you can cover it immediately out of the box LOL! I too ordered these phone skins from Gadgetshieldz because I don't like cases that put extra weight on the phone.

    Had to get a case when I received my phone, so went with Samsung's leather case in black. It's nice that it keeps the phone slim, but the case is slippery. Had a couple of close calls.

    Ordered and received the Spigen thin fit case along with a magnetic plate sticker to be able to use my existing Apple's MagSafe car mount and a mobile tripod from Peak Design.

    Also pre-ordered Dbrand Atomic Grip case. Looks to be very grippy.

    I started with a Spigen, they are my go-to. I did really like the look of the DBrand slim grip one, but I feel like it wasn't available until April or something?

    But I found a grippy see-through cheap one on amazon, so I'm sporting that so I can see the white back for now, lmao

    Spigen was my go-to as well, but got tired of them year after year. Only got the thin fit this time as couldn't find others I liked and waiting until Dbrand ships their case.

    Yes they ship April. Saw some reviews but not sure how I feel about the quality now.

    I buy my case on Etsy every year. I just need something to make the phone less slippery. This year's option was a wood back with mother of pearl inlay and my favorite quote. I added a glass camera array protector and I am set.

    Good points, and I've ended up wioth no name cases from Amazon for past couple phones. I have some clear one now wityh some grip, so it let's me see the white color I got, lol

    Has a hard phone case and fits in the bigger leather case which doubles as my wallet. One less thing to remember that way.

    I went with the
    Spigen Liquid Crystal Designed for Galaxy S22 Ultra Case (2022) - Crystal Clear

    Purchased from Amazon. I like the single camera cutouts (at least for the three left sided cameras). It offers good protection and will prevent the lint and other stuff from surrounding the protruding lenses as other have complained about.

    Phone is in an out of my back pocket, or since it is still winter where I live, in/out of my upper winter jacket pocket.

    On Sunday ordered the Discarve case, it's the first time I ever heard of wood and resin phone cases. Wonder if is it sturdy hmm. Was sceptical before purchase, but these colors won my heart <3 Looks like 3D river with rocky coast, almost like real.

    How stable is that case in portrait position?
