    I'm probably going to called out for this (sorry moderators), I couldn't find appropriate thread.

    I just wanted to get everyone's opinion for going case free. Knock on wood, I've been able to go case free all of my phones and have only dropped and cracked my current phone that whole time.

    My reasoning is why get a sleek, beautiful phone if I can't show it off. But I feel like these phones are slippery. And easy to drop.

    So I want to try DBrand which is just a skin. But I wanted to see if any of you have tried it or if you had a better suggestion.

    Thank you in advance! Happy s8 week!

    No way am I not putting a case on an $850 phone. My Note 4 has been saved multiple times by the Otterbox Commuter I have on it so I ordered the same for my S8+.

    While I agree that the S8/S8+ are awesome looking devices, I am not willing to risk destroying my S8+. Just my preference, feel free to go caseless if you want..

    Cheers,

    I've used the naked wraps from slick wraps in the past. Similar to dbrand, but clear. They make great products, but their customer service is awful if you have any kinds of problems. I don't really like cases either. Haven't decided what I'm gonna do with my s8+ yet. I swore I'd never order from slick wraps again after the problems I had the last 2 times I ordered from them.

    I only use a case when I'm at work. Everywhere else, it's naked.

    I've already got two Spigen Cases and an Otterbox Commuter on order. Having young kids, as much as I hate cases, I don't want to take the risk of them getting ahold of my device and dropping it. I usually go with the slimmest fitting clear Spigen case I can find and keep the Otterbox on hand for vacations, etc.

    Just promise not to post if you dropped and broke it! Would seem a forgone conclusion if dropped

    Another good option would be peel which is as thick as four sheets of paper. It is super thin and provides better grip then naked. Not sure if it is made for the s8 though.

    Currently Peel is iPhone and Pixel only. I saw a couple similarly made cases on Amazon for the S8+, but they weren't brands I've ever heard of.

    I'll use cases for majority of the time but at home and places where there isn't much chance of damage I'll take off the case. Trying to have the best of the both worlds. Been using the G6 like that and man that G6 feels so good in the hand. I believe the S8+ will be the same.

    Hopefully they will make it for the s8 in the future.

    I try to avoid no name cases as they tend to be sub par quality

    Hi

    I basically use the Samsung Official Black Leather push on case to add extra grip.

    Probably would use it naked most of the time, but will use a case from time to time, especially if I'm doing outdoor stuff.

    This phone certainly needs a case for a grip. S7 Edge is already slippery and S8 is no exception.

    That said, I hear you and totally OK if YOU want to go naked

    Thank you all for the great Info! Also I promise not to cry about it if I crack the screen. It'll only be my own fault. Lol.

    Ghost Armor may be an option. I learned my lesson by letting a phone go commando when I dropped and nicked it. This is the first smartphone that I did not get at the two year contract price so I am definitely putting a case on it. When I sell it, it will be pristine and get more for it.

    Why not try the Samsung clear cover? It's a barely-there case with a clear back and sides that are color-coded to your phone. This way you enjoy the full beauty of the phone but with protection from scratches and smudges, and maybe a smidgen of protection in case of an indoor fall. Did this with my S6 and S7. My S8+ orchid gray pre-ordered case will arrive tomorrow with overnight shipping. The Samsung-brand cases were on hold until today.

    You'll find many strong preferences both for and against using a case. Either choice is perfectly reasonable, although some people on both sides have a hard time accepting that.

    I myself am on your side. I take reasonable precautions with my phone, and my work environment is an office rather than a construction site or machine shop, so I have never needed a case or screen protector or insurance. I have never cracked a phone, and in more than ten years have gotten only two micro-scratches on any of my phones: one small scratch on my Note 5 screen (only visible in bright light with the screen off), and one tiny scratch on the back of my S7 Edge.

    Of course, chances are that I'll break something eventually. But the key question is how often that happens. If it's only once a decade or longer, then it's less trouble and expense to pay it off yourself when it happens than to use additional protection the whole time. And even with additional protection, phones still break when they fall (though they break somewhat less often).

    On the other hand, there are people who swear that no matter how careful they think they are, their phones always get scratched up, or fall and crack. All I can say is that's not been my own experience.
