    The Note 8 is already a huge phone. Slapping in a hard or even a slim case can make the Note 8 look even bigger. For folks who are looking for minimal protection that does not add extra baggage to the Note 8, then Peel's Super Thin Case is one of your options.

    This super thin case is available in three different colors for the Note 8:

    I like all of the three colors - Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, and the Arctic Silver. If you want to see the Samsung branding, then the Arctic Silver with the semi-transparent finish is your choice.

    The matte finish of the case is smooth and gives a premium feel when you take out the case for the first time from its box.

    To put on the case, just slide your Note 8 into the bottom of your case and then snap in the top two corners. If this is the first time you are using a Peel case, make sure you do this slowly and carefully so that you don't break the case.

    If you notice you will not find any branding on the case. The case comes branding free and that's a good thing as it helps you to focus more on the phone than on the case. One of the reasons I love Peel.

    At just 0.35mm thin, it barely adds any protrusion to the case or the phone. The case fits so perfectly that you will forget there is even a case, standing behind its super thin promise. However, a case this thin is hardly going to protect your phone from drops. So, if you are looking for that protection, then this case isn't for you.

    The side buttons are where it gets interesting. The side buttons in the Note 8 are not raised enough so I have always had trouble using those without the case. With the Peel case, it becomes even harder to use these side buttons as the case closes even that subtle lip those buttons had otherwise. This is my only downside of using this case with the Note 8. The side buttons are harder to reach as the case makes it difficult to find them.

    The camera and fingerprint sensor cutouts, on the other hand, have raised lips that make it easier to reach than without the case. Something that is a necessity these days with Samsung phones due to the odd placement of its fingerprint sensor.

    The cutouts for speakers, charging port and S Pen are well formed. I did not have any issues with the S Pen as it was no different to managing it without a case.

    Unlike other Peel cases I have used (Samsung Galaxy S8 and the iPhone X), I found this one a tad slippery even with the matte finish. That could be the fact that the Note 8 is a huge phone and you cannot avoid it being slippery.

    If you love thin cases, minimal branding, and simplicity, then there is no doubt you should consider Peel 's Super Thin Cases for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. You can buy them directly from the Peel's website for $24.99.

    I've used Peel cases before. They're usually the ONLY case I consider for a phone. I usually despise cases and go naked but when I'm at work that can be a tad risky. At least a Peel case will add some scratch protection and not completely ruin the look and feel of the phone.
