Angled ridges are also located on the back to give you extra grip – but you shouldn’t be worried even if these were to fail.

At £25 and with a free lifetime warranty, the Speck Presidio Grip represents great value. The only drawback is the limited colour choices.

Samsung LED View: The best Note 9 case for unique features

Price: £40 | Buy now from Amazon

It only makes sense that alongside the release of its latest flagship smartphone, Samsung has opted to extend its range of phone cases. And, since it produced the Note 9, it should surely know a thing or to about how to protect it…

The highlight of the Samsung range is the ‘LED View’ case. It sports a sleek design that comes in three colours and has a handful of unique features. For instance, the screen turns on and off when opening and closing the flip, and you can download themes to your phone that match the case. On top of this, the date and time are displayed through the cover and you can make or reject calls without even having to open the case.

Given that you’ve already spent around £1,000 on your Note 9, you’d think the case would be included for free. But, alas, it’s another £60. This is obviously expensive, but if you feel the need to extend your collection of Samsung merchandise, this case is far from being a bad option.

Key specs – Materials: Synthetic leather; Drop-proofing: n/s; Warranty: 6 months limited warranty
