Hello,

I am looking for a cover, and i checked every thread here and didn't see anyone talking about that :
A cover that fit well without covering the edge of the S9+ and not disturbing the usage of the edge functionalities (like the edge panel).

The only cover i saw that seem to do that is the Pitaka MagCase
But 50$ for a cover is just insane.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Spigen Rugged Armor, I have this case. It covers the entire back, and has a nice recess for the finger print sensor so you can find it without looking. It covers the side buttons and has a textured one for the bixby button. Possibly to help you avoid it? I dont know lol

I doesnt cover the sides of the screen at all and the edge display works without problem. At the top and the bottom it does protrude a little, so as to lift the display up if it is face down etc, but how well that actually helps I don't know. Very good case though.

Cost me £8.99 on Amazon.co.uk

There is a thread about cases people have, it might also be worth looking in there. My old phone has the same style (rugged armor) case for it and has been great, so I went with that this time.

I run an OtterBox defender, and have full access to the edge, and use the edge panel often...

Every single case I've tried lets the edge functions work just fine, for me. My reviews here:

I bought an incipio. Very good. Leaves plenty of edge space, Dual layer, but thin. Ive had this phone for a year and a half, and I even bought a backup case, just in case, lol no pun, but no, i haven't had to and ive dropped my poor phone more than thrice. I do have gorilla 6 glass protection though. Not one dang scratch.
