Top 10 Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Cases
Top 10 Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Cases
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is shaping up to be the best premium phablet flagship device this year. While we wait for the iPhone 8 to arrive we already know that the Note 8 is a big phone with a huge near-bezel-less display and advanced specs. Powered by the newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and being the first Samsung device featuring a dual 12-MP camera system this is no ordinary phone.
Of course the Note cannot be a Note without mentioning the S-pen and its suite of features. With the tip being only 0.7mm thin combined with 4096 levels of pressure on the display you get a fantastic pen-paper writing experience on the go.
The only downside to the Note 8 is it’s current price tag of 930$ or 1299 CAD in the north. So it would make sense to invest in a case and screen protector to really safeguard your expensive investment. Most youtuber’s and phone enthusiasts all agree that having a screen protector and phone case will greatly improve your chances of preventing scratches, cracks, and other damages that would otherwise easily happen in your pocket, bag, or during an unfortunate drop.

For those who prefer OEM cases directly from Samsung we recommend the Samsung S-View Flip Cover. This is easily one of the more prettier cases available as it compliments the color of your Note 8 and also doubles as a kick stand when showing videos to friends or viewing it yourself. Even when the screen cover is closed the case shows all sorts of important information including: missed calls, new messages, emails, alarms, and more. You can even accept and reject calls without having to open up the cover!

Music controls are also shown on it. This is a perfect case to protect the front and back of your phone while still seeing a cool 8 bit pixel LED lighting version of critical information right on the cover.

For those who love simple and basic clear TPU cases we would like to recommend ATGOIN’s Crystal Clear Slim Fit Flexible TPU. Being a clear case it still shows off that beautiful Note 8 in its entirety but also protects it from scratches, finger prints and most drops. Using a flexible material it easily covers the sides and the corners of the Note 8 combined with a raised lip on the front and a bit on the back protects the phone from the surface of a table you may set it on. The material is definitely light and you wont feel it in the weight but due to the grippy feeling of the material it should make it a lot harder to accidentally have it slip out of your hands.

Caseology has been manufacturing many cases as well. The Vault series is what we recommend in protecting your brand new Galaxy Note 8. The case is thin and utilizes a protective TPU based case to absorb shock from drops. Using a 3D texture cover provides additional grip along with additional shock absorption.
