Best Clear Cases for the Samsung Galaxy S8

13

What are the best clear cases for the Samsung Galaxy S8?

It's the same debate with the release of every new phone: Do you show it off or protect it with a durable case?

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has a brilliant new design that you'll definitely want to flaunt, but you'll also want to keep all that glass unscathed, right? Split the difference with a clear case and show off your new phone while keeping it protected from harm.

Samsung Clear Cover case

Of Samsung's own cases, the Clear Cover case is the most compelling. This case features a translucent cover that protects your phone's screen, while still allowing you to interact with your phone by answering calls, changing the music, and more.

Planning to watch a lot of video on that shiny new screen? This case also folds over into a stand for hands-free viewing. Samsung has designed a very minimalist case that keeps the slim profile of your Galaxy S8 intact. If you're planning to pre-order your new phone directly from Samsung, you can add this case to your order during checkout.

Spigen Ultra Hybrid Galaxy S8 case

Spigen consistently designs outstanding cases, and their clear cases are some of the best you can buy.

The Ultra Hybrid is a one-piece case that blends two of the most popular case materials. The bumper is made of flexible TPU to help absorb the shock of a drop and also features a raised lip around the front to protect the screen. The back plate is made of durable, hard PC plastic, which protects against scratches and other damage.

This case is virtually crystal clear, so you'll barely notice that it's there, but you'll be happy it is when it saves your phone from unsightly blemishes or a cracked screen.

Spigen Liquid Crystal Galaxy S8 case

If you're looking for a clear case that's a little more svelte, Spigen has you covered with its Liquid Crystal case.

The one-piece design fits snugly around your phone and offers basic protection while letting the beautiful look of your phone shine through. Made of lightweight and flexible TPU, this case is easy to pop on and keeps your phone protected with a 0.04-inch lip at the top and bottom of the screen.

This is another great option if you're looking for subtle protection that won't distract from the Galaxy S8's brilliant design.

Ringke FUSION Crystal Clear case

This dual-layer case features a hard PC backplate held flush against your phone by the flexible TPU bumper to provide a slim case that offers the drop protection you need while giving you the nearly invisible look you want from a clear case.

With extra protection in the corners and a tapered rim around the top and bottom of the screen, this case has been precisely designed to keep your phone safe. Ample cutouts around the speaker, charging port, and headphone jack ensure you have no issues with other accessories while maintaining a very stylish design that's available in three color options for the bumper.

Ringke has included, as always, a free DIY template for slipping a photo in the back, allowing you to change things up with a custom design whenever you want.

Best Minimalist Cases for Galaxy S7

26
Best minimalist cases for the Galaxy S7

Protect my phone, fine, but don't bulk it up!

Updated April, 2017: Added Spigen Thin Fit at the behest of our readers and removed discontinued cases and those that don't cut the mustard anymore. What remain are still our favorites!

Aside from the edge, the Galaxy S7 is Samsung's thinnest offer right now. Sure, you want to protect it, but you definitely don't want any of the bulk that comes along with some of the heavy duty cases.

We've rounded up some of the best minimalist cases for your S7; just remember that toning down the thickness of the case may make your phone a little more vulnerable when dropped from on high.

Spigen Thin Fit

Spigen Thin Fit

Spigen's Thin Fit cases are slim and somewhat plain, so if you're looking for a minimalist case for your Galaxy S7, this is a great place to start. Buttons and ports are all cut out instead of covered up, so tactile feedback remains true and oh-so-satisfying.

Thin Fit is made from hard polycarbonate, adding minimal bulk to your phone, so it seems like it's wearing nothin' at all. There are also raised bezels around the camera cut out and the screen to protect the glass from scratches You have your choice of black, mint, or white.

See at Amazon


Cimo Premium Slim Fit

Cimo Premium Slim Fit

This is the little black dress of phone cases, offering sleek protection in the form of soft TPU. The benefit of having a case made out of black TPU as opposed to clear TPU is that the black stuff won't yellow over time due to sunlight.

Though this one is quite form-fitting, there is still a touch of a lip (0.8 mm) on the front, so when you place your phone face-down, it's not sitting on the screen. The non-slip TPU feels grippy in your hand and it's dust-resistance helps with an all-black case. If you couldn't care less about goofy designs or bling, then pick up a slim, black case and be done with it.

See at Amazon


Maxboost Vibrance Series Protective Slider

Maxboost Vibrance Series Protective Slider

If you're looking something with a little more pizzazz, but don't want any bulk, then the Maxboost Protective Slider is a solid choice, combining just enough protection with some cool colors to give you just what you want: slim sexiness.

This line isn't called the "Vibrance Series" for nothing; these cases come in two color combinations: turquoise and "Champagne Gold" or "Italian Rose" and "Champagne gold." It comes in black, too, but I don't see how that's very "vibrant."

It's got a soft interior to protect from scratches and a grippy exterior, so you're styling and protected with minimal bulk.

See at Amazon


Caseology Skyfall Series

Caseology Skyfall Series

You just know that a case with a James Bond-related name is going to be sleek, sexy, and slim. The Caseology Skyfall Series case is a two-piece with a rubberized cover and harder wraparound edge piece. This case is best for those of you who chose the gold S7, since that outer edging is gold. So, you'll have a seemingly 100 percent clear case.

There are air pockets in each corner of the Caseology Skyfall, so if you drop your S7 from a reasonable height, you probably won't shatter the entire outer layer of your phone.

That harder polycarbonate edging won't impede buttons, since it wraps around your phone behind the buttons.

See at Amazon


Bear Motion

Bear Motion

Looking for customizable minimalism? Then get going with Bear Motion. These cases come in nine colors, with a matte finish, which give them an excellently grippy feel, so you know your phone is protected and won't be slip-sliding out of your hands.

At only 0.3 ounces, these Bear Motion cases add no real bulk to your phone, but protect it from drops while leaving the necessary ports, buttons, and sensors open for easy use.

Starting around $6, there's no reason not to give Bear Motion a try, especially if you're after a very thin case that feels great in your hand, looks great on your phone, and adds a splash of color to your S7.

See at Amazon

Sick of cases altogether?

If you just plain hate cases, but still feel like your phone is naked and vulnerable, you may want to consider a skin, like the ones Dbrand makes.

Best Tempered Glass Screen Protectors for the Moto G5 Plus

0

What are the best tempered glass screen protectors for the Moto G5 Plus?

The new Moto G5 Plus is an awesome budget phone with a 5.2-inch LCD screen that's sure to impress — but only if you keep it safe from scratches and cracks.

Your best bet? Buy a tempered glass screen protector.

You'll also enjoy the 2.5D round edges on these, which are kind on your fingers and looked cleaner when you look up close. This screen protector features cutouts around the ear speaker, front-facing camera and fingerprint sensor, so you'll feel the difference of those softer edges.

This is a dry-install screen protector should go on easy with a bubble-free installation, and thin enough to maintain the full touch sensitivity of the screen.

See at Amazon

Featuring precise laser-cut cutouts around the ear speaker, camera, and fingerprint sensor, this kit comes with everything you need for a clean, bubble-free installation including alcohol wipes and dust removing strips.

See at Amazon

Supershieldz tempered glass screen protector (three-pack)

Two is good, but three is better! This bundle from Supershieldz comes with three tempered glass screen protectors for your Moto G5 Plus. If value is your main goal, you simply can't beat this bundle.

You'll get near edge-to-edge coverage here with enough room to accommodate a case, along with 2.5D edges for a nice smooth feel for your fingers.

Supershieldz are known for making really quality screen protectors that are anti-scratch, hydrophobic, obeophobic and backed by Supershieldz no-hassle lifetime replacement warranty.

See at Amazon

LK tempered glass screen protector (three-pack)

While the other three options on this list offer a very similar design, this three pack from LK takes a different approach, doing away with the thin ridges around the cutouts and just swooping right down around the ear speaker and camera at the top, and cutting up from the bottom edge around the fingerprint scanner.

On one hand, this leaves more of your screen exposed, but it also should help improve the overall integrity of the screen protector by removing those weak points around the cutouts.

Scratch resistant, shatterproof, and oleophobic, these screen protectors will keep your Moto G5 Plus screen protected, and are backed by a lifetime, no-hassle replacement warranty.

Protect your Galaxy S8 and S8+ with Spigen's Protective Cases

12

Want to protect your Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus? Take a look at these great options from Spigen.

That beautiful glass on the new Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will be prone to scratches and marks if you're not careful. If you're curious on how to protect your new Galaxy when you finally get it, here's a closer look at Spigen's more protective cases.

Tough Armor

If you're looking for a phone that maximizes protection while keeping the slim profile of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus intact, Spigen's Tough Armor case is the ideal choice for you. It adds rugged protection and increased tactility to a phone that's beautifully designed, but might also be slippery to hold. Spigen's Tough Armor is available in four colors: gunmetal, black, coral blue, and maple gold.

The two-piece design fits securely around your phone, offering edge-to-edge protection and bezels around the screen and camera. The buttons are kept flush with the case, which should still provide good feedback and are easily accessible. The TPU body offers protection from drops and falls by providing some shock absorption, while the hard polycarbonate shell protects from scratches and scuffs. There's also a built-in kickstand on the back, which has been reinforced this time around.


The Spigen Tough Armor is available for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Samsung Galaxy S8+.


Neo Hybrid

Spigen's Neo Hybrid case features a brand new look from the last generation, and personally, it's my favorite looking case in Spigen's updated lineup.

Still providing dual-layer protection but with a slimmer profile, the Neo Hybrid case is comprised mostly of a TPU body with a subtle polycarbonate bumper frame to reinforce the corners and the edge of the phone.

The first thing you'll notice is how nice case feels in hand. While the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus is a smooth, silky feeling phone, the Neo Hybrid gives your device a more rugged, textured feel. This texture will no doubt give the phone a more solid feel in your hand, so you wouldn't have to worry about your new Galaxy slipping away from you.

Another great addition to the Neo Hybrid case is the redesigned bumper. It now cuts into the back of the case instead of just going around the edges. This allows the bumper to lie completely flush with the TPU body, meaning you won't have to deal with any sharp plastic edges when you're slipping your phone in and out of your pocket.

The Neo Hybrid comes in a wide variety of colors; however, the gunmetal version is the only one you can buy right now —the other colors will be available April 10.

The Spigen Neo Hybrid is available for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Samsung Galaxy S8+.

Rugged Armor

Spigen's Rugged Armor is slim and flexible while maximizing its durability and resilience. Carbon fiber accents along both the top and bottom of the case look greatnwhile also providing much-needed texture when the phone is in your hand.

There are precise cutouts for all the ports along the bottom of the phone, so you still have easy access to everything you need and all the buttons on the side are also protected, so you don't have to worry about dust and dirt getting into the hardware. The buttons are also slightly raised from the profile of the case, which helps you feel where they are when you're not looking. Perfect for making sure you pull your phone out of the pocket the right way.

Much like Ford in the early days, you can have the Rugged Armor in any color you want, as long as it's black.

Spigen's Rugged Armor is available for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Samsung Galaxy S8+.

Liquid Air

Made up of just a singular TPU shell, the Liquid Air case does have textured pattern on the rear of the case to improve your grip. Plus, all the ports are free and open, so you don't lose any functionality of your phone and the buttons along the sides are all covered to protect you from dust.

The Liquid Air and Rugged Armor as super similar, the biggest difference is in appearance. The Liquid Air offers you a much more uniformed look and is perfect for people who love a more modest look.

Spigen's Liquid Air is available for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Samsung Galaxy S8+.

Spigen also offers a number of other cases for the Galaxy S8 and the S8+.

Best Clear Cases for Moto G5 Plus

0
Moto G5 Plus

Keep one of the best budget phones around protect but not covered up.

The Moto G5 Plus has set a new gold standard for budget phones, and despite its price tag, you should still protect your investment. The new design is quite attractive, so if you don't want to cover it up, you can get an awesome clear case.

Here are the best around!

Cimo

Cimo

Cimo's cases always fit really well and their clarity is excellent. Made from flexible TPU, these cases have a great in-hand feel that's not slippery, so you won't be fumbling your Moto G5 Plus all the time.

There's a raised bezel around the front of the case to protect your phone's screen when you lay it face-down, and the ports and buttons ore cut out precisely.

It's important to note that clear TPU will almost always yellow after some time due to the way it absorbs sunlight. But for around $8, you might as well grab a few.

See at Amazon


Sparin

Sparin

Sparin's clear case is designed with extra protection around the corners, which is the most important area to protect against drops and dings. Any good impact on your phone's corner will likely be a killshot. The extra corner padding also adds raised areas on the corners, helping you to grip your larger phone more easily without dropping it.

This is another TPU case, so it's flexible yet durable, and the edges are just a little softer to help with shock absorption and grip. The anti-scratch coating will help keep your case and phone looking pristine, and Sparin's lifetime warranty will protect you should there be any product defects.

See at Amazon


Poetic Affinity

Poetic Affinity

Poetic's Affinity series is available for just about every phone imaginable, and that's because the Affinity is a great clear case that fits precisely and gets the protection job done. These cases aren't completely clear, featuring a cool black line pattern on the back that gives your phone some form, though the lines are minimal and don't cover up your Moto G5 Plus.

The Affinity's TPU is rigid, providing solid protection against drops and bumps, and the harder black plastic reaches over the corners to add even more protection to the most vulnerable parts of your phone.

See at Amazon


Love Ying

Love Ying

Love Ying's cases are for folks who don't want to cover up their Moto G5 Plus but might like to add a splash of color.

Will you be using a Galaxy S8 screen protector?

52

It's a new year with a new Samsung flagship — and another curved screen to try and protect.

As we patiently wait for the release of the Samsung Galaxy S8, we've already started thinking ahead to all the awesome accessories that will help keep your new phone protected and looking stylish.

One key accessory that some folks absolutely swear by is a tempered glass screen protector. If you've spent any time in the Galaxy S7 forums this past year, you'll know that finding a quality screen protector for the curved screens of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge has proved exceedingly difficult. Many suffered from the dreaded "halo effect", which is especially prevalent with flat screen protectors on curved screens, while others had issues with adhesiveness or touch sensitivity. Eventually, we saw proper curved screen protectors emerge that offered true edge-to-edge protection, addressing the issues that plagued the early releases.

Now, any time we write about screen protectors, we always get a few contrarians in the comments who say screen protectors are a waste of money and they've never had so much as a scratch on their screens. And hey, that might actually be the case for some people. But why is a tempered glass screen protector so important? Because life happens — just ask Biggmac419 who shared the following story in the forums:

#mn_oembed_c:before { display: none; } #mn_oembed_c { display: table; width: 100%; max-width: 700px; box-sizing: border-box; cursor: pointer; position: relative; background: #dee9eb; padding: 35px; left: 35px; margin: 0 auto 0 auto; border-radius: 4px; border: 1px solid #dbe1e4; font-family: 'Fira Sans', sans-serif; line-height: 1.5; -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased; text-decoration: none; } #mn_oembed_i { padding: 0 13px 0 23px; font-size: 18px; display: table; width: 100%; box-sizing: border-box; } #mn_oembed_a { position: absolute; width 65px; height: 65px; left: -33px; top: 20px; border-radius: 50%; border: 2px solid #dbe1e4; } #mn_oembed_un { color: #ff5200; text-decoration: none; } #mn_oembed_t { color: #858b8e; font-size: 12px; } #mn_oembed_q { float: left; font-family: 'PT Mono', monospace; font-size: 100px; margin: -5px 0 0 -10px; color: #858b8e; } #mn_oembed_p { margin: 20px 0 0 50px; padding: 0; color: #07080a; font-weight: 300; } #mn_oembed_b { margin: 20px 0 0 0; font-size: 16px; float: right; cursor: pointer; background-color: #fff; color: #ff5200; border-radius: 4px; padding: 0 20px; line-height: 38px; text-transform: uppercase; box-sizing: border-box; display: inline-block; text-decoration: none; transition: all ease-in .2s; } #mn_oembed_b:hover { color: #fff; background: #6ab2be; } @media (max-width: 767px) { #mn_oembed_c { margin: 0 auto; } #mn_oembed_a { margin: 0 20px 0 0; float: left; position: relative; height: 65px; left: 0; top: 0; border-radius: 50%; border: 2px solid #dbe1e4; } #mn_oembed_i { padding: 0; } #mn_oembed_u { height: 69px; } #mn_oembed_un { padding: 12px 0 0 0; } #mn_oembed_q { display: none; } #mn_oembed_p { margin: 20px 0 0 0; } }

I'm a firm believe in tempered glass 2 years ago I was riding my motorcycle about to go for a jog and it flew out of my pocket and was ran over by what a bicyclist said 4 cars. He was a good guy and gave it back. This is how it was returned. The best 40$ I ever spent. And invisible shield replaced it for 6.95 shipping. AMAZING!!!

And the results:

It's worth noting that you can see this particular screen protector from ZAGG didn't need edge-to-edge protection to fully protect this Note 5 from sure destruction.

We won't be able to figure out for sure which screen protectors will work best until the Galaxy S8 has been officially launched and we've all had some time to test and try out different screen protectors, but here's hoping accessory manufacturers nail the design and functionality right out of the gate this time around.

If you're still not convinced on the value of a screen protector for your phone, we'd suggest picking up a case that offers a lip around the edge of your phone so that your screen is protected properly if you place it screen-down on a table.


These are the best Galaxy S8 cases available so far

Here are some curved glass screen protectors that seem promising, to say the least:

Incipio Curved Glass Screen Protector

Incipio's Plex Plus Shield Edge screen protectors for the Galaxy S8 aren't available yet, but they sure look promising. They claim to be custom-crafted tempered glass sheets that will fit your phone like a glove and allow for perfect touch sensitivity.

Otterbox Alpha Glass Screen Protector

If you trust in Otterbox to keep your phones safe, you'll be happy to know it's offering a curved glass screen protector for the Galaxy S8. No word yet on whether its screen protector is also compatible with its cases, but it looks like a promising option if you're not scared off by the price. They're expected to start shipping out by April 28.

SuperShieldz 3D curved glass

Supershieldz are experts in protecting smartphone screens. If you're looking for tempered glass protection for your Galaxy S8 with curved edge-to-edge protection that won't break the bank, you can order yours in advance from Amazon.

Verizon is offering trade-in deals on your favorite tech accessories

3

Verizon wants to help upgrade your tech accessories this April.

Carriers frequently offer trade-in deals to upgrade your smartphone, but Verizon is looking to extend that offer to some popular accessories by offering a pretty sweet trade-in deal on select products.

Running until the end of April, you can get a $30 Visa prepaid card when you spend over $149.99 on a new smart thermostat, fitness tracker, or speakers and recycle your old gear. With summer just around the corner, it's the perfect time to upgrade your old thermostat to the latest Nest Thermostat or trade up your Fitbit to the latest Charge 2 model.

If you're interested in snagging some new speakers for the summer, bring down that old Bluetooth speaker and upgrade to the UE BOOM 2. The UE Boom 2 is one of the best portable Bluetooth speakers you can buy and, conveniently enough, Verizon has them on sale for $149.99 — 25% off the regular price.

Once you've completed your trade-in, you'll need to head to Verizon's Promotion Center and use the promo code RECYCLE along with receipt info and UPC barcodes to read the full terms and conditions and submit your form to complete the deal. You can trade in multiple devices at one time, but trades must be like for like; your old fitness tracker for a new fitness tracker, your old school thermostat for a new smart thermostat, etc.

Will you be using this deal to upgrade your accessories? Let us know in the comments!
