Get the IQ Shield, hands down best screen protector. It's cheap (about $8) for a 2 pack, lifetime warranty, I actually requested a replacement because there was a tiny little spot on the top left corner of my device where I couldn't squeegee out the bubbles or whatever, it was super tiny but I was OCD about it so I asked them to send me another one and they did and it was super fast. Anyways the screen protector is super easy to install, keep in mind that this was my first time using a liquid applied screen protector. As long as you follow the videos instructions that they provide on YouTube then your screen protector will be applied without any issues. Mines dried pretty quickly and the sides or the edge sticked down pretty nicely. It's case friendly too so it worked with all my cases. Plus no dust or lint can get underneath. The thing I love about this screen protector compared to tempered glass is that when you squeegee out the water during the installation process, it removed all the dirt or lint that gets underneath so your end result looks absolutely fantastic. Also it's not as finger print smudgey as I thought it would be and it feels really smooth like an actual glass. Plus the film is pretty thin so it won't be sticking up and it'll be hard for anyone to tell whether there's a screen protector on it or not.

> What is the durability of the back case? I saw a video of it cracking kind of easy.

It's glass, curved glass at that, so not very durable. It may take some small drops if you're lucky and it doesn't fall flat on the back, but other than that, don't expect much. Definitely buy a case if you're worried about it.

>Any recommendations on cases

I'm fond of my Spigen Liquid Air Armor (S8/S8+). It's slim, but still feels somewhat protective. It's not the most protective thing out there, but to me it provides a good balance of protection and grip while being slim (not a huge fan of cases). It's also cheap at only $10.

>I'm on a note 3 currently so a big upgrade overall. Anything crazy different ui wise or is still the sameish TouchWiz we've all come to love?

I haven't used the Note 3, but from what I've seen of it the UI is drastically different in a good way. They've majority toned down their modifications. It's still nowhere near Stock, and has a nice selection of features, but it's not as intrusive as before. It also looks nice IMO, they've gotten rid of the sickly green they used to use everywhere (although, they've replaced it with mostly white, which I'm fine with but some people aren't into). They also have themes and we have preliminary Substratum support, so it should also be fairly easy to customize to your liking.

>How was it getting used to the odd aspect ratio?

Not hard at all. I enabled full screen mode for most of my apps (the exception being games that don't stretch well), and for the most part they don't have any weird issues stretching to fill the screen. I thought it would be nice being able to see more vertically, but I honestly haven't noticed it much.

The times I do notice it is moving back. Using a 16:9 screen feels really weird, especially since most of the phones using it also have big bezels. Everything looks fat and stubby. It's weird, moving up I didn't notice it much, but moving back down it feels super weird.

See update here which includes a Ringke case review:

Original post:

Top to bottom:

  • elago (
  • Bear Motion (
  • Maxboost mSnap (
  • Spigen Thin Fit (

    I've been trying out these four thin cases. In the image you can see my S8 face down in each case, with a Verizon tempered glass screen protector on. You can see the edge of it, a white line which curves downward at each end.

    I'm thinking of removing the screen protector, so I took these photos to see which case would provide the most protection when the S8 is face down without a screen protector. The Spigen has a raised lip at the top and bottom of the case that just barely keeps the screen protector off the surface below. The Maxboost lips are about even with the screen protector. The Bear Motion lips barely rise above the S8 screen, and there are no lips on the elago.

    The Spigen is the most robust case and is the biggest weighing 18 grams, has a raised lip around the camera for extra protection (you can see it in the bottom picture), has space for a metal plate for a magnetic car mount (if you like that sort of thing), and is made of a grippy matte material. Definitely this feels like the case with the most protection. Very nice.

    The Maxboost is slightly smaller than the Spigen and weighs 17 grams. It's matte material is a bit less grippy and the buttons aren't as easy to press because the openings aren't cut away like the Spigen. There is no raised lip for the camera. I like it though because it is slightly smaller than the Spigen.

    The Bear Motion is made of a sandy feeling matte material that provides great grip. It is about the same size as the Maxboost but only weighs 13 grams and has cut-away button openings and a very small raised lip for the camera. I like it too!

    The elago is extremely thin, weighing only 5 grams. It is barely bigger than the phone itself. It is so thin that mine got a small rip near the power button on the right when I was taking it on and off, and the left side is slightly loose, not as snug as the right. Buttons are easy to press as they actually protrude beyond the sides of the case! It is matte, grippy but not quite as grippy as the others. It also has a small raised lip for the camera. It feels great in the hand but doesn't give confidence as it has no protection to speak of except for scratches and fingerprints.

    Although size-wise the Spigen is my least favorite, I may end up using it because it inspires the most confidence, seems like it might do better in a drop situation, while protecting the screen better when the phone is face down due to having the largest top and bottom lips, and also the biggest lip around the camera.
u/SoldierZulu · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Second one is way too thick on the edges. My wife has the first one on her iPhone 6S and it's a great case. Buttons are free floating and nice and clicky. Does scratch/scuff really easy though, just FYI. Might want to replace it every 6 months like she does because it just looks dirty and ruins the clarity after enough regular use. You'll see.

I've ordered 3 Spigen cases so far:

[Spigen Liquid Crystal Galaxy S8 Plus Case] (

[Spigen Thin Fit Galaxy S8 Plus Case with SF Coated Non Slip Matte Surface - Black] (

[Spigen Air Skin Galaxy S8 Plus Case - Black] (

I've only had the chance to try the first two, and the Liquid Crystal case sucks. The buttons aren't separate from the rubberish case and they're mushy. I won't deal with mushy buttons.

Ordered the Thin Fit instead and it's better but the material is a cheap hard plastic that reminds me of lower quality android phones or the older S2/S3 models. There are also breaks in the corners so you can snap it in because the plastic is so hard, and it kinda ruins the rounded, flowing aesthetic. The hard plastic cutouts on the bottom for ports and such cut into my fingers when the phone rests on it and that sucks. The areas for buttons are cut out completely which is really nice, since I like direct access to buttons. Definitely better than the Crystal, still not great at all.

The third gets here tomorrow and I'll review it when it does. It still has cutouts for the buttons which I like but they are smaller, which means more protection which I also like. The material also has no corner breaks and it's very thin while also tinted black and partially transparent, so hopefully some of the shine and aesthetics come through. The best part about it for me that I think I'll like the most is that the entire bottom is cut out, so I can rest my phone more comfortably on my fingers. I know it's almost practically just a skin on the back since it's so thin, but it has adequate corner protection and I take good care of my phones. Main goal is to avoid scratches and the occasional light fall.

If the last one doesn't work out I'll just get a transparent Neo Hybrid (first one you linked, not OP's). I at least know the quality of that case. I just wanted something a bit thinner this time around. Oh well.

u/Zrewl · 4 pointsr/GalaxyS8

I bought a tech21 check case. It has a good grip to me, but it's also a 30-40 dollar case. I have been looking at some of the cases on Amazon trying to decide if I want to throw down some money and try some other cases to see if I'd like them better.

Since there are no tempered glass screen protectors worth looking at right now and they tend to be very expensive for how crap they are. I was looking at getting some Spigen S8 Plus NeoFlex film covers

Since they are Spigen I am hoping a case from Spigen will fit with the film covers and not cause the edges to pucker and unstick.

So I am looking at Spigen Rugged Armor S8 Plus

Along with some other cases from Spigen.

Plus considering the SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle PRO

But I have no basis off which to judge if those cases will be grippy enough to match the Tech21 case I have currently. I would like to get the Beetle Pro with the Spigen film covers (don't know if they will work together), because the holster with the pro would be nice to have in some circumstances with the phone. Kind of debating on getting two cases since they'd almost be about the same cost as my Tech21.

If anyone reads this thread and has input on any of those or ones they think might better match the Tech21 Evo Check, please let me know.

Samsung Internet is a great browser, it supports extensions so you can add an adblocker easily.

Disconnect Pro (~$25) & AdHell 2 (free) are highly recommended system wide adblockers, I use AdHell and am pretty happy with it overall.

I recommend Google Photos for a gallery for the cloud storage, but if you don't care about that the stock Gallery app is fine.

Any bloat on your phone you can "disable" which will stop it from updating and clear it from your app drawer, long press to do this.

Textra is a good texting app if you don't like the stock one, but the stock one works fine for my needs.

Check out Gboard and SwiftKey as alternatives to the Samsung Keyboard, I think they're both superior.

I use this case and am happy with it.

u/Pinanims · 4 pointsr/GalaxyS8

Alright, everyone keeps telling you to be careful, which I guess you already know, i'm going to give you the benefit of a doubt and say that maybe you cracked it once by accident, it happens, and the second time was because your phone screen was already weak from being replaced... I'll say it's no fault except bad luck. Shit happens.

My recommendation is just bite the bullet on spending a little more than you want to for phone protection, it will save so you much money in the long run. Screens are $200 - $300 dollars to replace, when you can just spend $75 now and protect it. So here's what i think will help.

  • Get a case
  • The one that is most reccomended after me spending DAYS going through threads and looking for solid cases is the Spigen Neo Hybrid ($13.99). Slim case with actual protection.

  • Get a screen protector
  • Also through my research is that the TG (Tempered Glass) protectors are all awful except for the Whitestone Dome ($44.99). Is a hard pill to swallow but it's the only glass that fits well, no reduction in sensitivity, and has full screen adhesive to keep from having those ugly rings around the edge of your screen or having those black bars. I reccommend this because you seem to crack your phone, rather than scratch it, this may save your screen a ton.

  • If you reeeallyy don't want to swallow the $50 then most people just go with a wet applied film to just help from scratches and possibly a minor crack. Most people settle for the IQ Shield LIQuid Skin ($7.85). It's just a skin but it may save you in the end.

  • Get a stand
  • It will keep your phone more secure on your desk rather than having to deal with knocking it off when reaching for your glasses. Any cheap stand can work. I went with the Econstyle Stand ($7.99) because it's easy to move from my side table by my bed, to my desk by my compute. Just some extra security and ca keep your phone from getting any scratches from laying it face first on a hard surface.

  • If you want to get a little luxury you could always get Samsungs Fast Charging Wireless Charger ($39.99) which has a stand included so you just set your phone down and it's charging, but that's just extra luxuries and isn't necessary.

    So you could spend a bit for some extra security that will save you time in the long run, or you can keep risking dropping your phone and breaking it. I bit the bullet and got the case, TG and stand and I haven't looked back. I actually dropped my phone first few days after having it, but thanks to my TG the damage was only there and it saved my screen completely.
u/MishaKMusic · -1 pointsr/GalaxyS8

Well i am getting my S8 soon but for the S7E the thinnest case ive used and loved is the Spigen Thin Fit, its soft touch hard plastic, minimal protection but i never drop my phone all i need protection for the back of my phone from small falls and scratches. and it still has a tiny lip to protect the screen when you put it face down on a table so i will be getting it for the S8 as well. EDIT: Oh and it has exposed volume/power buttons which i love. so much nicer to press than through a thick case

Spigen Tough Armor Galaxy S8 Plus Case with Kickstand and Extreme Heavy Duty Protection and Air Cushion Technology for Galaxy S8 Plus (2017) - Black

I had this brand on my G5 forever and on my Note 3 before that. They make a nice case and slim also. They have a couple different options as well. They may also make screen protectors but I can't remember off the top of my head.

I highly recommend them. Good luck!

u/Cloudpico · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Have had this on my S7 edge for a year and it's honestly the best case I've ever owned. Perfectly raised over the edges, and super slim. Already ordered this case, just waiting on my s8 to arrive.

u/MackinB · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Started with the Liquid Crystal case, and it's nice, but already starting to get that yellowish tint most clear cases get over time. Switched to Spigen Thin Fit yesterday, glad I did. Doesn't show the phone off but fits well and makes it easier to hold.

u/Tehfrag · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Been using these on my S8+ and could not be happier with them 6+ months and I don't even notice it's there, I use Gboard for swipe typing and my fingers just glide across the screen without them sticking like other plastic screen protectors, they are not tacky plastic feeling at all. They are wet install, but came with 2 for a very good price, still in my first one, but might replace soon as I've noticed some small micro scratches, and it would be nice to have my S8+ shine like the new S9's that are coming out 😎

u/explosivo563 · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I was in the same spot as you. The s8 plus is my first upgrade since s6. I am still waiting for the spigen glass protector, but I am currently using this skinomi "skin" on the screen. Reviews for glass were horrible. But the skin fits amazingly well so far. It obviously won't protect like glass can, but it covers what my case doesn't and it's better than nothing. Microscratches are not cool.

It also comes with two, so I'll probably see how the spigen is and if it fits with my speck Presidio grip. If not, I'll just stick with the skin. Thankfully these companies are usually good about issuing refunds or replacements if something doesn't work.

But I also have device protection so that helps. But it still isn't cheap to get a replacement.

And wet installation is fantastic. You spray a liquid (basically just soap water) directly on your fingers and all over the skin, and then slide it around the phone until it's perfectly aligned. You squeeze the liquid out with a card and it dries on. It's still removable but it takes a while to dry.

Here is the video it gives you

"Self-Healing, flexible, tough, military-grade thermoplastic urethane, designed to absorb impact. The TechSkin is resistant against scratches, punctures, UV light and will not yellow"

(some heavy duty marketing, but reviews were good)

u/PolakOfTheCentury · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

My case comes up on top on the edge/infinity display by less than a millimeter and gives the phone an edge up above the screen just in case of a face down fall. when I place my phone on my desk face down. There's a minuscule amount of clearance between the screen and desk which is nice knowing that if I place it face down, I'm not rubbing the screen. This case is super slim though so no screen space or edge space is really impeded on. I got it off of amazon for cheap. It was $7.99 when I bought it and I would highly recommend it. You can actually see in the picture on amazon where they have the phone laying face up that the top and bottom of the case just barely go over the top of the screen.

u/FrostWolfGoddess · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Carrying around an expensive peice of hardware like this bare would give me all kinds of anxiety lol. I use this case and it feels fantastic. Not only does it give extra grip it also provides extra protection to the edge screen without hindering functionality. I also have it coupled with this screen protector and it fits amazingly with the case (plus it was super easy to install).

u/Nitemare3219 · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

That case is translucent? Looks like an opaque standard matte black case to me.

Cimo typically makes some quality translucent cases, with the option for opaque/matte black TPU as well.

I highly recommend this case though - it's honestly the best TPU case I've ever had (on my iPhone 7 Plus, just bought again for S8+)

u/KurisuFuransu · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Looking at the Air Armor from Spigen after your suggestions. I really like the Orchid Gray, but none of the cases seem to look very good to my eyes when emulating it.

Seems even the heavier-duty ones have reviews where the case didn't protect the phone from cracking. I expect it will still help a bit and mitigate damage from smaller falls, as well as make it easier to hold.

I'm looking forward to how the next-gen S# Active looks as that may be the route I take next time.

u/tonyf007 · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS8

Can confirm this works. Just tried it and I was also pleasantly surprised. Definitely stronger hold with the metal plate or without a case. I use a very thin case and it holds, but I feel like it'll drop with a good bump on the road. Nice to know I have the option to go plateless tho.

u/EvolNum · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS8

My notes and advice on screen protectors.

  1. Your screen can be scratched by sand in your pocket (Micro scratches).
  2. All glue tempered glass screen protectors are garbage (Low touch sensitivity and can easily fall off. The touch sensitivity issue is caused by the glue raising the protector from the screen).
  3. The plastic ones feel gross.
  4. I've tried DIY loca, it can be a hit or miss depending on how careful you are. Please do your research before attempting this.
  5. Whitestone Dome is amazing but ridiculously expensive.
  6. I've found that full adhesive screen protectors can somewhat protect your device from a fall. I've personally had Whitestone Dome fall face first, protector cracked, phone was in perfect condition. Although I'm not certain if the phone would have cracked..
  7. Use this. I've been using it for a month and it works flawlessly. It's also only $12.99 compared to Whitestone Domes $40+.

    Note - My recommendation is a full adhesive LOCA screen protector. You must be careful when installing it. You've only got one shot. Unless you buy like 5.

Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand W/ AFC Wall Charger (US Version With Warranty), Black

This is what I use, it's an older model with the stand. Works fine but it likes for the phone to be pretty centered to charge. Also I couldn't get it to work until I used a very short micro usb cable to plug the charger into the wall adapter, your mileage may vary. I think the new version may work easier, bu t I can't speak on that.

u/iconformed · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS8

Depends on preference, I don't like bulky cases since I'm pretty careful with my phones so the Spigen Liquid Armor is perfect IMO. Offers adequate protection with a sleek non-bulky design and great grip.

u/shrike1978 · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

This is the one I'm using. I've heard really good things about the Yootech brand as well.

If you've never installed a wet type before, watch the installation videos and go slow. You can peel, respray, and restick them until they dry, so they're easy to get right. You also have to be patient and give them time. They can take 2 or 3 days before they're completely clear and bubble free. Think of it like installing window tint on a car, because it's basically the same thing.

u/ogSPLICE · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I have one Neo Hybrid for when i need to be careful with my phone, and right now im trying to find 1 super thin, almost non existent case, for when im at an fancy event, or meeting, or elegant dinner party. This way i can still have the super thinness of the phone, but avoid scratching up the back.

Ive tried the Annceer case, which is very minimal, but just feels and looks dirty, by the design, so im sending this back.

I tried the Elago , this case is also thin, but just way to slippery, like a wet bar of soap. - going back

The Spigen thin air so far is my preferred super thin case of choice. Has enough grip on it too. I just wish the camera cut outs were the same as the Elago or Anncer.

and im currently waiting on the MNML case to ship so i can try that one out

u/Here_ya_go · 6 pointsr/GalaxyS8

Super thin?

This wins:

Thing is like paper LOL i have it and its just a very thin piece of plastic only meant to protect from scratches. Waiting for the phone so I can slap it on but I imagine its going to look/fit like a skin.

EDIT: the first two look like the same case only different names as the one i posted... Why are these random companies the only ones to have precise cutouts for the camera, flash and fingerprint sensor whereas big names like Spigen got lazy and just cut out one big hole..

u/sumith1896 · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Do you have a non-glass one or a glass one? Glass one looks more safe, does it fit well? Will I be safe with the non-glass one (I am very insecure)? If non-glass, do you recommend matte or not? Thanks in advance.

u/chriskmee · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I am using this one with a case (spigen neo hybrid) and its working pretty well. They sell single packs as well, just make sure its the case friendly version.

u/Dzmagoon · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I have these three, and that cheap one from Tauri is probably the easiest to put on and off - although they all pop on and off real easy. My favorite and daily is that gray Ringke - it looks so good on the phone, nice and classy, but still a one piece with a great texture that won't slip out of your hands - and again, dead easy to pop the phone in and out.

u/_Dumpling_ · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

That's the one I use on my S8+. You basically spray this water/soap solution they provide you onto the screen protector, then you put it on your phone and let it dry. I've dropped my phone several times with this on and a good case and haven't had any issues. That being said if there was really good quality glass screen protector I would get it. People say that the Whitestone Dome Glass is really good, just too expensive for me so I use these instead and like them. I did use glass screen protectors when I had the S5 and will say they provide better screen protection. Just so many of the ones for the S7 Edge, S8, and S8+ only have adhesive on the sides and that ruins touch sensitivity.

u/dreamtreedown · 3 pointsr/GalaxyS8

Spigen Tough Armor is another rugged option, also close to $20. I'm currently sporting the Unicorn Beetle Pro. It looks big and rugged but doesn't add nearly as much bulk as it looks like in the photos and the buttons are a breeze to press.

If you want sleeker, the Neo Hybrid is a good option too.

No matter what, you'll want a case that protects the screen by having a "lip" on the top and bottom

u/SpiderDice · 3 pointsr/GalaxyS8

I just received the Liquid Air Armor from Spigen, and I really like the feel of it. It's like that harder rubber, and the back has a nice pattern to it that provides grip. I've tried many different Spigen cases, and for me, the Thin Fit over time developed scratches that wouldn't go away. So that's why I opt'd for the Liquid Air this time.

I like and recommend Spigen cases to everyone.

u/rudranil · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I have used a number of wireless chargers over the last few years. Most of them were decent at best. But, once I started using this, I never looked back. Hands down, the best charger ever.

u/incarniac · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

> Can someone recommend a tpu case thats won't slide out of my hands, even without the cutouts? I find the matte ones are always too smooth and slippery.

I can recommend the Spigen Neo Hybrid though I'm not sure if you'll find it too slippery or not. It does have a bit of a matte back but I don't find it slippery.

> If I use an adapter, will all of my quick charge 2 power banks and chargers still charge at quick charge 2 speeds?

A slight aside, but in addition to QC2 (and QC3 and 4 as they are backward compatible), the S8/S8+ will also fast charge with chargers that provide 3A over USB-C (will usually be USB-PD/Power Delivery chargers although I don't think the S8/S8+ actually supports USB-PD itself, just the 5V @ 3A that the USB Type C standard allows for). Both QC (9V @ 1.67A) and USB-C (5V @ 3A) will charge equally fast (15W) when the chargers support either of those.

u/CheekyGoose · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS8

$42 seems a bit much for one screen protector, but from what I've seen, the Whitestone Dome is an excellent screen protector because the adhesive glues the entire panel, rather than just the sides.

Personally, I recommend any TPU screen protector. They tend to be a lot cheaper (like $3-8 on Amazon). A TPU protector is a rubbery layer that doesn't offer quite as much protection, but it gets the job done if you pair it with a case that has a lip.

I've been using this one from Amazon for about two and a half years which came in a two-pack, but I'm still on the first one:
and the case I use with it is the Spigen Tough Armor:

u/neomancr · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I've dropped mine a good few times in this thing

Check this out at - Maxboost Galaxy S8 Case mSnap [Perfect Fit] [Black] Samsung Galaxy S8 Case Anti-Slip Matte Coating for Excellent Grip Thin Hard Protective PC Snap Case Covers for Samsung Galaxy s8 2017 - MB000097

It grips on really tight so there's no chance the thing can plop out. there are raised lips at the top and bottom so as long as the thing falls on a flat surface the glass doesn't impact at all.

It works fine for me.

It definitely isn't a tank, but I'm pretty confident that as long as the glass itself doesn't make impact nothing will get damaged. the thing has a solid metal frame which is designed to absorb shock.

I personally trust it. I had the same exact case in my S7 and catapulted that thing across the room a few times by accident.

I hate fat cases too.

u/Sh4d0wr1der · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I just got mine over the weekend and went caseless for a few days. Zero scratches, but I was very careful with it. I ended up with the Spigen Ultra Hybrid and I love it:

I also purchased the Spigen Neo Flex screen protector but I haven't put it on yet:

Both the front and back of the phone are made of the same Gorilla Glass.

u/XyQFEcVRj1gk · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS8

I've had good luck with this one.

Using the quick charger made it warm/hot and didn't ever cool down even after 100%... once I switched to a normal ~2 amp charger it charges fine overnight and everything stays nice and cool.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Check out the speck presidio grip case.
Maximum grip = less falls.
Here you go:

Second case I recommend is the unicorn beetle pro:

Both have a great lip around the screen edges to protect your phone screen when face down.

Spigen Liquid Air Armor Galaxy S8 Plus Case with Durable Flex and Easy Grip Design for Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus (2017) - Black

I just got this in the mail today and love it. Used it previously on my iPhone 7 as well.

u/malaykurwa · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS8

I have two wireless chargers, both from Pleson

These work perfect! I have a USB C to Micro USB adapter and still get the wireless fast charging.

Also tried this one from RAVPower, seems to me very small and you need to match the charging coils perfectly to get it working. Ended up returning.

u/brianb13 · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Thanks. We will see...

I actually ordered the "updated" version, not sure what it means but hopefully it's better in some way.

u/zeebs758 · 4 pointsr/GalaxyS8

I use the Spigen Tough Armor case and love it. I've been using it since April of 2017 for the S8+ but they do make it for the S8 as well. Never had any issues with it. I've dropped my phone a lot and its been fine. I use fingerprint scan to unlock my phone and the case helps line up my finger to do it. It doesn't cover up the bottom so it won't help you there.

u/vjj1mguKD · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Screen Protector + Case , Whitestone Dome glass + Spigen Neo Hybrid, result: SUCCESS

They work perfectly together. Would like a bit more of a lip on the top/bottom but hey, that's what you get with a slim case like the Spigen Neo Hybrid. There is zero interference between this case and my Whitestone dome glass application even though it's slightly botched and off-center by .5mm or so. You can't go wrong with this combination. BTW the Patchworks Flexguard does interfere with the Whitestone Dome glass application ever so slightly but that might just be because mine is botched and off-center by .5mm - the case pries at the glass.

u/echostar777 · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Get your hands on the iq shield screen protector, it hides this wear and tear quite well and it's very scratch resistant.

Definitely worth the 8$.

u/HlValadeen · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Seems like there's actually a good glass option now, but its rather expensive.

Probably one of the more complicated applications, but seems promising. The plastic protectors were ok, they always left a rubbery feel that I could never get used to.

I tried out yootechs wireless charger and it has worked great for two years now. This one linked here is the newer version that has fast charging. However, perhaps a fast charging one might not be the way to go if You just intend to use it over night. Either way it's so cheap and works good.

u/corsair234 · 7 pointsr/GalaxyS8

This is my go-to; I have 3 of them (one in my office, one by my bed, and one for travel). It works great and it's pretty cheap.

[This is my choice for a heavy duty case]( Galaxy S8 Case Full-body Rugged Holster Case WITHOUT Screen Protector for Galaxy S8 (2017 Release), Unicorn Beetle PRO Series - Retail Package (Black/Black)

It's adorable and has great raisivity and comes with a holster if you're into that kind of stuff.

u/MiddiePSU · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I had the Neo Hybrid case for my S6, went through two back to beck in a short period of time. The concept is nice, but the quality wasn't there.

I moved on to the Spigen Thin Fit Galaxy S8 Case and also have one for my S9 now.

All that being said, in my experience Spigen is very responsive and will work with you to solve the problem. They replaced my first thin fit case on my S8 when the rubberized coating started peeling off at no cost.

u/BestSorakaBR · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I use this. Been 3 months since I've had it and there's no peeling like some reviews state.

One think to keep in mind is that this is a softer screen protector (So it forms to the edges). It's not that stiff yet flexible plastic you'd get for screens with that are flat. That being said you will get some marks due to keys, scratches, coins, etc. Doesn't bother me since I'd need to hold it to the light to see them + screen off.

I used IQ Shield for some of my other products and haven't had an issue.

They basically seem like the same. 2 screen protectors, liquid application, lifetime warranty, same price. Pretty cheap so if it ends up not working out you can just return it to Amazon with no hassle.

u/XelaSiM · 3 pointsr/GalaxyS8

Hmm I hope these are alright. I had actually been considering the Yootech before I jumped on this. At least returning it won't be an issue if I need. Thanks for the tip tho.

Edit: BTW are you talking about this one:Link or this one: LINK

u/lkleckner · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I have used wireless charging since my S3 days, the latest charger I bought was this one (I wanted fast charging)
It looks great, you don't have to look for a "sweet spot" when placing the phone on it, and the light goes off after 10 seconds for bedroom use.

u/scgf01 · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I have a Spigen Thin Fit black case ready to pop on my S8 as soon as I get it and have pre-ordered a Spigen AirSkin case in black. The thinner the better for me - I use a case to prevent minor scratches rather than as drop-protection.

u/benk016 · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS8

I bought the g-color case-friendly version, and The sides did not stick well on that one. And my case peeled them up.

Just email their customer service line, send a pic and they'll refund you.

I ordered [these]
( and it works great! The instructions mentioned pushing the liquid out the sides, and then waiting about 15-20 minutes before trying to push down the sides. This worked great for me. Been going 3 weeks now with no peeling up.

I use the Supcase Unicorn Beetle.

u/playbeasy · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I picked up three of these and they're working great for me. They have a light ring around them that is green if fast charging and blue if slow charging. It claims to be auto adjusting based on ambient light but for me it's pretty much always dim which I don't care about.

The important thing is that it's dim enough that it doesn't bother me about a foot from my head while sleeping. I'm very sensitive to light when I sleep. So much so that the light that shines under a hotel door from the hall usually keeps me awake.

I haven't had any issues with alignment either, works first time every time.

I paid $16 each a few days ago but they're on amazon for $11.99 right now. No adapter is included.

u/jb7410 · 3 pointsr/GalaxyS8

Wow, I really like the first one. I have never ordered from Aliexpress. Does it really take 20-30 days to ship?

u/gibletzor · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS8

The Whitestone Dome is the only tempered glass protector I've found that works worth a damn.

These are the best TPU wet install screen protectors I've tried. Better than the Spigen Neoflex by far.

u/Yokai_Alchemist · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I bought this one and it's AMAZING it does not peel and covers perfectly along the curves. Ive bought 2 different brands of the curved glass and they were horrible.

u/grabbinsumpillz · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Its very comfortable to hold. Here is what it looks like.

u/GoMonkey66 · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Regarding "fast charging"...I have a different dock (this one: ), and it's totally dependent on the adapter you plug the USB cable into. If the charger adapter is the Samsung fast charger that you get with the phone then yes, it'll fast charge. Really, unless you're trying to be brand loyal, there's no point in overpaying for the Samsung one. It's WAY more expensive than comparable wireless charging stands for no real reason. Ok, it includes the fast adapter (the part you plug in), but you already have one of those (and if you've used other Samsung phones you most certainly do) then don't pay 4x the price just because the charger says "Samsung" on it.

u/TheManWithMilk · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I've been using a Spigen one I purchased on Amazon. It was actually really easy to install and I feel like it barely affects sensitivity.

The only thing is it's kind of a film-like material. It seems to get.... Scratches? I'm not sure what the correct term is. They're more like indents. The only time I can actually see them is under certain lighting, but it doesn't affect regular usage.

u/ScottyNuttz · 3 pointsr/GalaxyS8

I love the quality and design of Spigen cases.

I'm looking at the Thin Fit, the Liquid Air Armor or the Ultra Hybrid for the normal Galaxy S8.

u/mistical · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

It is over with, deals on Woot normally last 24h or less or until gone.

No, that was not the same one. This is the one I received in the mail: $40

And the refurbished version of it is $25:

Honestly, I'd personally just go for the refurbished version which will be just fine, likely someone returning one that didn't like it. Plus it comes with 90-day return warranty and you're buying it from Amazon too.

u/currentlydrinking · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS8

I ordered and have been using this liquidskin protector for a few months. Galaxy S8 Plus Screen Protector (Not Glass), IQ Shield LiQuidSkin Full Coverage Screen Protector for Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus (2-Pack,Case Friendly) HD Clear Anti-Bubble Film

Was skeptical at first. It was weird putting it on with a solution then letting it dry, and it had a quidhy texture.

But after a few months of use, I forget it's even on. No blemishes on it (I assumed it would be easy to scratch since it's not glass), and I don't even notice a difference in feel anymore. I got used to it super fast. And it's only eight bucks.

u/squeakyL · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I bought this thing when I had an S6 -

It also works with the S8 with fast wireless charging. That was a pleasant surprise when I upgraded to an S8+

It fast charges and works great for my nonplus! My old choetech would only work if you had it in just the right spot. Otherwise it would do the wireless pause thing.

u/johnsbrats · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

i have many cases as well, and the thinnest case i have with adequate protection is the Spigen liquid air armor. it works well with the Spigen screen protector (non-tempered glass).

the other cases i have are either very thin with minimal protection, or thicker with other options (kickstand, etc).

u/Lawls91 · 3 pointsr/GalaxyS8

Spigen has some great cases, I personally went for this one, it's super slim but it would cover up the rear decal.

u/StupidMoron1 · 6 pointsr/GalaxyS8

I like this Spigen one. It's a wet application, so it's a bit harder to apply than the glass ones, but there's no bubbling in the center. If you apply it exactly right, the edges won't get raised up by a case. I've read some people have had success with this Whitestone one, but it is more expensive.

u/GiantsJets · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Is that the cheapest wireless charger available? I am now trying to save a bit as I just spent my money on the S8+, for instance, I saw this on Amazon, but not sure how great it can be, and also safe for the device?

u/natepalm · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Gotta say This is pretty awesome. No problems with response or missed swipes and dead easy to put on. Feels great too.

u/TheUprightBass · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Whitestone dome glass screen protector. Kind of pricey for a screen protector but I went through three prior and they were all terrible. I’ve been using a spigen neo hybrid with the Whitestone and it’s been great.

u/RPIBuckHunter · 3 pointsr/GalaxyS8

7 months in I am still fond of the Whitestone Dome glass.


Most of the negative reviews seem to be people failing to make sure their phone was on a level service when they installed it.

My own install and review is below:

At the time it was the only English language demo of the Whitestone Dome glass, now some more popular youtubers have reviews on it too.

But the protector is still going strong on my phone. It attracts a little bit of dirt/pocket lint around the edges, but it does not penetrate the protector at all.

It does sometimes lift up on the edges because the case will sometimes push up against it. If only they could make the screens as good as the case.

You're right about the screen, the curve looks pretty but I could do without it. I had a good experience with this screen protector, but follow instructions carefully while applying:

u/cluelessa · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

is this the one you're talking about?
Damn I'm actually worried. I tend to drop my phone quite a bit, so I feel like I would need a strong screen. I know glass doesn't fully protect it from drop, but at least it puts my mind at ease.

offtopic: I had NeoHybrid Spigen case for my previous phone, and it offered a bit of bump protection for the front screen. Does it have for the S8 too?

u/haruka34 · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Any recommendations? I've been looking at this one but I'm worried the buttons aren't completely covered, it looks weird in the images, like there is some gaps in between. If not that, maybe but it looks like the sides are metallic, and I wouldn't really like that.

u/Sheeobee · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

There is already a thread about this and many people use it and works.

It's not tempered glass but it allows it to follow the curves and does its job. Plus the wet application prevents bubbles and such.

u/HeadphoneJackal · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS8

I had the same problem with my Spigen NeoHybrid case and the Yootech protectors. Someone else in here recommended IQ Shield and it has been working well for me ever since, with maybe about a 1mm gap between the case and the protector.
