The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is officially two generations old now that the Note 10 has arrived, but it's still a pretty great phone in 2020. Whether you've owned one since launch or just recently snagged on on discount, you're going to want to keep it safe and stylish. We've rounded up the best cases to consider for the Note 8.
Rugged and sleek
This sleek case has carbon fiber accents along with a matte finish. It's made of flexible shock-absorbing TPU material, and doesn't add much bulk.
The Commuter case offers a great combination of rugged protection that OtterBox is known for and a slimmer design, making it easier to slip into a pocket.
Best for grip
The Speck Presidio Grip is designed to prevent phone drops by giving you a case with a grippy exterior. The stylish design is an added bonus.
Ride the wave
This two-piece case combines a soft TPU layer with a hard PC shell. The exposed TPU on the back features a wave design that feels great in your hands.
With a two-tone design featuring fabric and faux leather, this wallet case looks great while giving you three credit card slots and a pocket for loose cash.
Keep it simple
This bumper case has rugged protection where your phone needs it most — in the corners, around the edges, and around the front and back panels of glass.
Strong and light
The UAG Monarch has a lip around the display and skid pads on the back, so your phone won't be prone to slip and slide off of any surfaces.
This case has a TPU sleeve and polycarbonate frame that work together to offer superb protection. And that pattern at the back looks great.
Extend the life of your Note 8 with a case

We always recommend putting a case on a brand new phone to keep it in mint condition so that you can maybe trade it in or sell the phone down the line and get good money for it. However, even if you've always rocked your phone "naked," a case can offer a fresh look for your aging phone and help keep it safe in its twilight years.
Deciding on a case can be hard, but no matter which of the above options you go with, you can rest assured knowing that you're getting an outstanding case for the Note 8. One of our personal favorites is the Spigen Rugged Armor thanks to its low price, sturdy protection, and slim design.
But let's say you really don't like cases because they cover up the design of your phone and add extra bulk. You should pick up the RhinoShield Bumper, which still leaves the back of the phone exposed to show off your phone while providing ample protection where you need it most: around the outer edge of the phone and display.
