If you're a big fan of Wonder Woman, Thor, Iron Man, or even villains like the Joker, Skeletor, and Darth Vader, then we recommend checking out Slickwrap's sick skin designs for your Galaxy S8!

My personal favorite designs come from the hero series, as the orange and blue colors from the Iron Man skin are totally unique, bright, and super vibrant, but you can also check out their Helmetica Series (opens in new tab) that feature heros like Starlord, Baymax, and Wolverine, the Galactic Series (opens in new tab) that features characters like Yoda and Boba Fett, or their Anamalactic Series (opens in new tab) that feature more incredible designs from artist Justin Maller of panthers, owels, bears, and more.

  • I just want something that adds a bunch of grip and almost no bulk. Is that so much to ask?
  • Not a skin, but you should try Peel Case for the S8.
  • Dbrand. Black Dragon adds a ton of grip, and I've had the same effects with the Hyperblack Titanium and the Matte Black on my S8 as well. And they're cheap.
  • Apparently it is, I am after the exact same thing and cannot find it!
  • Used the dBrand wood grain skin while I had the s7e and loved it.
    On my s8 I have Slickwraps Galactic series on and again very high quality and provides great protection from scratches. Nice product but I can't explain why but I like dBrand skins better and will likely go back to them for the Note 8. Much better assortment in the Slickwraps line up though.
  • I've tried the Slickwraps Chrome skin for the S7 but it was crap. The thing was poorly cut. I swear by dbrand. And I've gone through a bunch of them. The marble and mahogany skins both look amazing on Galaxy phones. I've used both and I'm now back to the matte black skin ('cause I always end up being fed up with non-black devices).
  • My S8+ is wearing the dbrand Black Dragon skin. I love the look and feel -- a far better grip than the naked device. Edit: Yes, the fit is perfect.
  • Slickwraps Hero Series for Galaxy S wow this really good..
  • dbrand is the only way to go..rockin the Black Dragon on my 8
  • Hmm, wonder if they make a perfectly clear one...
  • BestSkinsEver. They make perfectly clear full body skins in glossy or matte finishes. I usually put just the back one on and the camera. Cases still work with them and you don't have to worry about debris getting in between the phone and case potentially scratching it.
  • Yes, those would be perfect. Unfortunately the most recent HTC skin they make is for the M9 :(
