Best Leather Cases for Galaxy S8 and S8+

The debate on whether or not to slap a case on the Galaxy S8 or S8+ rages on. On one hand, the phone is downright classy and beautiful all on its own, but on the other, it's made of glass and is, therefore, prone to taking damage.

A nice compromise is a leather case, which looks much nicer than other cases made of plastic and rubber. Leather cases are offered by a number of manufacturers and often include some type of wallet functionality as well. We've collected a range of options for you to consider, so let's dive in!

Spigen Wallet S

Spigen's Wallet S case is a great option for those looking for a folio-style wallet case. Made of synthetic leather with an embedded TPU casing, this case blends protection with functionality by including three card slots, a pocket for cash, and the ability to fold it over into a kickstand for hands-free media viewing.

This case is available for both the Galaxy S8 (linked below) and the S8+ (opens in new tab) in both black and coffee brown. You can buy with confidence knowing that Spigen is one of the most trusted names in phone cases.

FYY Genuine Leather wallet case

All too often case manufacturers misuse the word "leather", when in fact their case is actually made of polyurethane material that's made to look and feel like leather. More often than not, we're okay with this, but if you're looking for a case made of genuine leather, FYY has you covered with its case for the Galaxy S8.

Available in five different color, FYY's wallet cases are handcrafted out of real leather for a premium look and feel that you just won't get from many other cases. You'll find three card slots and a cash pocket on the inside across from the phone itself. It also offers RFID protection to prevent someone from reading your debit or credit card information with an RFID reader.

If you're looking for a case made from real leather, look no further than FYY.

  • Do these kinds of cases protect much from drops or do they just look nice?
  • The Icarer case made of vintage leather is boardroom quality. Holds the phone securely and allows for wireless charging. Magnets keep it closed or folded back. Very little bulk and screen is covered. Available from Amazon.
  • I just got the X-Level case and I love it. I first discovered them when I got the Note 7 last year, and have since gotten their cases for the Pixel and iPhone as well. They've become my new favorite brand. I think my favorite thing about the S8 case is how thin it is and how the buttons are actually cutouts instead of having to push through the case. It also looks and feels great and the price is great.
  • Alcantara
  • The Alcantara case looks amazing but I just don't want to Shell out that much on a case.
  • Not leather.
  • I've tried a couple but my favorite case for the S8 is Otterbox's Strada. It doesn't have a lot of storage for cash and cards but it's very protective, stylish and rich looking. https://www.amazon.com/OtterBox-STRADA-Samsung-Galaxy-Packaging/dp/B06XC...
  • Could just one of these have a kickstand, please?
  • LOL I came to see leather cases and they're mostly all plastic aka PU leather. Looking for a real and quality leather case? Then look at Vaja at www.vajacases.com or Burkley at www.burkleycase.com. All the cases on this list are a joke.
  • Just looked at the magnetic detachable Burkley S8 case. That's easily the best leather case I've seen yet. Basically gives you two cases in one and the $60 isn't even expensive compared to other real leather cases. If I get an S8 I'm definitely getting that one. Good protection, and option to use wallet piece or not depending on the occasion is awesome. Thanks man.
