At $999, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is an expensive phone, and I bet you wouldn't want even a scratch or a ding on it. However, given its glass back, the Galaxy Note 9 is a slippery device. Plus, combined with its size and weight, the outcome doesn't seem to be a pleasant one. That's maybe one of the reasons that the makers have shipped a silicon case with it.
The case is anything but basic. While using it, I found the buttons to be hard and inflexible. In my opinion, a proper case should amplify the looks of your phone, and at the same time keep it shielded.
In this post today, we'll take a quick look at some of the best Galaxy Note 9 cases with kickstand and wallet.
Usually when one speaks about cases with kickstands, one often imagines a big bulky case. Spigen attempts to change that with its ultra hybrid clear case. This one is a clear case with a slim kickstand fitted at the rear end. Just pluck it out to prop your phone. Other than that, the cover has all the right cutouts for easy access to fingerprint sensor and buttons. The crux of this cover is the air-cushion technology that takes the brunt of impact in case of accidental drops.
Also, since it's a clear case so you can still flaunt the magnificent design of your Galaxy Note 9. The Spigen Ultra Hybrid Clear Case is priced at $14.99 on Amazon.
The ArmadilloTek Vanguard rugged case is for all those who love bulky covers. This polycarbonate cover comes with a heavy-duty screen protector. With precise cuts for the S Pen and other connectors, it fits snugly around the phone. Furthermore, the product is built to protect. It has been drop-tested under military-grade setup and is claimed to be shock-proof. Also, it works with the Samsung Wireless charger.
Our first pick for wallet cases is the Maxboost Folio style case. Priced at just $11, it's made of PU leather and gives the case an elegant look. Typical of most wallet cases, it also comes with slots for keeping your card and cash. Needless to say, the outer flap can also double up as a kickstand so that you can watch movies and videos.
If you'd rather settle for wallet cases and covers in a variety of colors, you should give the case from Flyee a shot. It's available in almost ten different shades and will surely bring a chic look to your Galaxy Note 9. The Flyee case is made from faux leather and is accompanied with double stitches at the edges. The slightly distressed leather appearance gives it a vintage look.
The Flyee ultra thin wallet case is priced at $10 on Amazon.
Important Note: If you are someone who uses the S Pen a lot, we'd recommend settling for a normal case or one with a kickstand. The magnetic clasp of wallet cases often interferes with the S Pen's functions.
Looking for a wallet case that looks different than the usual ones? Say Hi to the ultra-cool wallet case from Spigen. This case is made from dual layers comprising of a soft inner layer and a tough outer shell, to bear the brunt of the impact. It completely wraps around the phone, thus keeping it fully secure. Also, the raised lips along the rear camera help keep scratches off from the lens.
The crux of this case is the neat pocket at the rear to keep two cards. All you need to do is slide out the cover and take out your case. That's called the perfect marriage of looks and functionality.
The Spigen Slim Armor CS is priced at $17 and is available in Lavender, Black, and Ocean Blue.

The Galaxy Note 9 is a bit on the heavier side. So I'd recommend you to choose your cases very carefully before you invest in one. At the end of the day, you wouldn't want a $1,000 phone tumbling down while you are in the middle of something, right?
