These are exciting times for Samsung with the S8 and S8 plus handsets showing that bad news can easily be forgotten if you deliver next time around. We’ve not seen the levels of pre-order for the S8 series outside of iPhone launches and demand for suitable cases has been considerable. The best case for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will of course be down to the users’ needs. We have looked at those cases that will offer the best protection to the beautifully manufactured bezel free screen.
Tech 21 S8 / S8 + Impact Resistant Cases
The Pure Clear £29.96 and Evo Wallet Case £39.95 look set to be the most popular cases for the S8 and S8 Plus from Tech21. The consumer choice will be whether to go for a slim back protection case and add a tempered glass solution or the wallet case which provides all round protection. At this stage, we are not certain with Tech21 whether they will be delivering a curved edge tempered glass solution.
The Galaxy S8 impact resistant cases from UAG are following on from their success with other handsets. Lightweight but offering military level drop testing, Urban Armor Gear have again delivered a high-quality offering under £40 for the Metropolis wallet case solution and under £30 for the Plasma and Pathfinder back cases. Their success in impact cases continues to grow globally and we still love them for the drop text from outer space.
Rokform S8 Bike Mount Cases
Rokform is simply more than just a phone case for the Samsung Galaxy S8 (No case available currently for the S8+). The made in the USA brand of cases provides a more active solution complimented by their patented mount and holder solutions for cars, offices and bikes. They also have an extremely useful mount for your GoPro which when paired allows you to see the action your filming on your S8 screen. If you are into cycling, outdoors or simply want a solid car or van mount solution for your Galaxy S8 then Rokform have delivered a great solution.
Otterbox Certified Drop Test Cases for Samsung Galaxy S8 / S8+
Again, like other major brands Otterbox have gone for a range of folio and back cases. The market leaders have such a following for those that have used their products in the past and we expect major sales from them this time around. The Strada folio is perhaps a better all-round daily offering that the Galaxy S8 / S8 Plus defender series which is for those that need serious protection. The Symmetry back cases at £30 are comparable with their rivals…you know you will always get a high-quality solution from Otterbox.
Terrapin Impact Resistant Cases for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus
Terrapin have again delivered their value for money cases focused on those that will be dropping their Samsung phones. Their Dual Layer and Rugged cases offer maximum protection for a fraction of the price of the other brands. They also offer more colours than their rivals. Their design is less sophisticated than some of the larger brands but when delivering high quality cases under £10 for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus we have included their range as a suitable solution.
If you have recommendations on other brands that we should include in our range, we welcome you to share those with us.
