    I had the 2 piece Tech21 case for my N7 and liked it. I think I am going to try this one.

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074XZ16ZH...cUvbUpU5940519

    Same 2 piece design that was kind to screen protectors. I will also get a leather wallet style case.

    I hope finding a screen protector that stays on won't be as big of a challenge for the N8 as it was for the N7.
    What I don't like about Tech 21 is that they don't offer a ton of lip on their cases to protect the screen and they're pretty thin and too slick.

    The one case I did love was the Evo Tactical XT for the Note 7. It is their Defender style case and was a great case, the only one I'd consider buying again from them but they discontinued the XT line. Overpriced for what you pay.

    I need a case with a good kickstand, with this big screen TV, I'll be watching a lot of TV. LOL
    I got a Spigen Tough Armor, It has a kickstand and I got it for $16.99 on Amazon (it arrived yesterday) it's close enough in size to my S8+ that it fits in the belt clip for the Seideo Surface case I have on my S8+ (not a perfect fit but workable). In the long run I may get another Surface case because I think they have a better kickstand (they are just not available yet).
    Something else to consider, Spigen makes a stick on kickstand you can add to most cases that have enough flat space on the back to mount it on.

    Cheers,
    BR
    Waiting for my N8 to ship....

    Depending on how these feel I may end up ordering a Supcase unicorn beetle again. Those have done well for my N4, N7, and now s8+.

    Just got my Caseology Legion series from Amazon today. Very similar to the s8 Plus one I got. For $14 it is pretty good quality too and seems it will provide decent protection.

    I still plan on getting the Otterbox Defender but might wait until it goes down in price and I might buy a Supcase and an Armorbox instead this time and not waste money on Otterbox.

    If Sams gets the Note 8 defenders in early again I might buy it though since their prices on cases are a lot lower than everyone else and sometimes they have Amazon beat.

    Oh and this case is slightly taller than the one for my S8 Plus. I don't know if the overall phone will be a lot taller or if it's the design of the case since the screen is only 6.3inch compared to 6.2 with the s8 Plus.

    I ordered the Ringke case. Seeing how pretty the Casemate one is I may have to order that one too.

    Question about cases. When it's described as being "military grade" and "shock proof", what does that mean?

    I-Blason crystal case. Have it on my Note 5 and had it on my Note 7 before I returned it. For those of you wanting to see the phones beauty but protect it at the same time. I'm a minimalist so this works perfectly and doesn't add any bulk. Slides in and out of my pocket with ease.

    Question about the cases. Do all of them have raised bezels on all 4 sides or just top and bottom? I ask because if you drop the thing it can sometimes strike the glass 1st, before the raised sides.

    As long as 2 opposing sides are raised, it should be good. If it hits a small hard object on the glass first, it won't matter if all 4 sides are raised. You will need a protective layer above the glass to reduce glass damage.

    Yes it will dude. This is never really discussed really. I prefer my phones being fully recessed in the case so no matter how or what it hits, it ALWAYS will hit a raised edge of the case FIRST, before the screen. Imagine just the top and bottom have raised edges, if the phone falls at a different angle, the screen will take the 1st hit (in most cases). Obviously if it drops on a rock or something then there isn't crap you can do but if it lands on a brick sideways for example, the screen is getting cracked. If you have raised edges on your case and it hits sideways, it will hit the case first.

    There are 3 film-type screen protectors on that Top-10 list. I am not interested in glass protectors, so please leave that out from my replies. Thanks.

    1- Spigen Galaxy Note 8 Screen Protector NeoFlex / 2 Pack

    2- Alinsea Galaxy Note 8 Screen Protector [Not Glass]

    3- Vigeer [ 2 Pack ] [Bubble-Free] [Easy Installation] [HD Clear] [Soft Film]

    Any idea which one would be superior. I never used a wet one, I typically buy the 3-packs from VZW and have worked well for me but they aren't available for Note 8 yet.

    Are there any cases that are fully recessed with the curved screen. If so, the curved edges would be covered and usleless, I would think.

    I'm going with #1 - I got a Spigen case coming, and the instructions say to put the screen protector on WITH the case on while you are doing it. It's a wet application. I just want to ensure compatibility with the case.

    people who want ultra fully incased protection for their phones lose the feel of the phone and the late-model thin/light experience. I don't blame them, some people wrap their sofas in plastic too.

    I like the least amount of protection, and it has worked very well for me over the years. Includes film screen protector and not glass and ultra thin cases from VZW such as this one. Yes the phones have dropped and never any issues.
