Best Samsung Galaxy S8 Cases Android Central 2020
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is getting on in years, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't protect yours for as long as you can. Whether you bought your S8 Day One or just received yours as a hand-me-down or second-hand device, you want this phone to last you as long as it can, so buy it a case that will protect it in style!
- Pretty and protective: i-Blason Ares
- The glass standard: Spigen Liquid Crystal
- Light on your wallet: Maxboost mWallet
- Trusted brand: PowerBear Battery Case
- Never fails: Spigen Neo Hybrid
- Thin and colorful: Anccer Ultra Thin
- Clear and colorful: Supcase Unicorn Beetle Style
- Diamond in the rough: UAG Plasma
- Leather feel, plastic pliability: Ringke Flex S Series
- Tough and tested: OtterBox Commuter Series
- Like nothing's there: Peel Super Thin
While most multi-layer cases hide all of your phone's delicate features from view and harm, the Ares lets the beauty of your S8's glass back shine through the clear polycarbonate back, aided and complemented by bold accents like creamy pink or vivid green.
If you want a case that will cover your glass against scuffs and scrapes while still not hiding a single inch of its beauty, Spigen's Liquid Crystal is simply the best around. I'm partial to the Liquid Crystal Glitter variant, but the regular clear case is great on its own.
Maxboost offers a wallet case that will keep your Galaxy S8 safe and secure while also letting you keep your traditional wallet at home. The wallet is held shut with a magnetic clasp, comes in three colors, and fits three cards and some cash with ease.
This robust battery case from PowerBear includes a massive 4500mAh battery, which is perfect if you've noticed that your phone's battery life is waning. It comes with a USB-C cable that allows for pass-through charging so you can charge the phone and case at the same time. A reliably durable case that literally gives your phone new life.
The Neo Hybrid is not just our favorite Spigen case of all time; it's one of our favorite case series period. The dual-layer construction is slim but still protective, and for the S8, the color combos available are legion! The Niagra Blue and Arctic Silver are stunning.
This hard candyshell case is as darling as it is durable. While Anccer usually has almost a dozen color options for flagship phones, after two years, the stock has been whittled down to four colors: Smooth Red, Smooth Dark, Gravel Black, and Gravel Green.
This clear case is a bit more rugged and a lot more bold than the Spigen Liquid Crystal, resulting in a case that is striking in its own right while still putting the S8's delightful design front and center as the star. There are four two-tone colors available, and they're all winners.
While there are two solid styles available, the translucent models like the Citron, Ice, and Cobalt are far more beautiful, letting some Samsung branding through while still defending your phone from scuffs, dings, drops and shatters like only UAG can.
This hybrid case combines a vibrant synthetic leather outer cover with a flexible and durable TPU inner shell, gripping your S8 tight and absorbing some of the shock should it take a small tumble from your pocket.
OtterBox remains one of the most well-known and well-trusted names in heavy-duty cases, and the Commuter Series balances bulk and protection better than the more hulkish Defender Series. Available in four colors, this rugged case is built for real-world conditions.
Which case should you get?
While all of these cases are highly-rated and worthy of protecting your precious flagship, alas, your phone can only wear one case at a time. While the Spigen Neo Hybrid is so luxurious in hand you probably won't ever want to take it off, the i-Blason Ares with its built-in screen protector and vivid color accents will protect your phone with its life on a weekend hiking trip or out to your uncle's ranch
On the lighter side of the spectrum, Anccer Ultra Thin have been our go-to thin cases for the last couple of years because they're affordable and vibrant. Speaking of vibrant, if you want to show off the S8's glass back while still keeping it super-duper secure, the Supcase Unicorn Beetle Style has a crystal clear back paired with two-tone hybrid bumpers to offer you the best of all worlds. Plus, the blue and purple models are taunting me with their loveliness.
