Rugged S23 Ultra cases: You either go big or go home
So, you've decided to get a heavy-duty case for your Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. That's a bold move, considering the gigantic size of the device. Since the phone is a monolith in itself, you'll want to opt for slim tough cases to avoid stressing your hand.
On that front, the UAG Pathfinder does a fine job of bolstering your S23 Ultra without bulking it up. You get admirable ruggedness from such a sleek case, but it doesn't offer much of anything else. This doesn't mean that it isn't a heavy-duty cover of great prowess though. Your S23 Ultra is as safe as possible when safely nestled within the durable UAG Pathfinder series phone cover. This tough accessory can absorb shocks from bumps and falls like nobody's business without damaging your phone. The edges are all raised so the screen doesn't shatter upon impact.
If you want something built like a tank with a lifetime warranty to back that claim, get the CaseBorne V by ArmadilloTek for the S23 Ultra. This monstrous cover can take on the world on its own and it comes with a useful kickstand. There's no screen guard though. For that, consider Poetic, SUPCASE, or i-Blason. Alternatively, you can always get a separate screen protector for your S23 Ultra.
