    Have a black s8+
    In my opinion this phone is too gorgeous to cover up. Thoughts?

    I don't think it's that gorgeous with all the finger smudges on the backside. So slipping out of ones hands aside, the backside smudge grease would make me want a nice leather shell case or maybe a skin.

    On my first smartphone, I dropped it and it got dinged and nicked. Ever since then, with a couple of exceptions, I have had a case. The exceptions occurred because the case came out after the smartphone. I have had a smartphone with a Defender almost a decade ago drop down two flights of concrete stairs and survived unscathed. When I sell my old ones, people can't believe how pristine that they look. Given that my GS8 is my first curved display device and the first one not subsidized on a two year contract price, I wasn't taking a chance of damaging it.

    I have so far...I bought two different cases, but one is even more slippery than the phone itself, and the other just adds more bulk than I'd prefer. I may do a dbrand skin on the back of it depending on how those end up looking on the curved surface.

    I'm still 50/50 on the subject. The S7 Edge was the first phone to ever have a case for me, only because it was so slippery on the edges - the S8+ is no where near as slippery to me. I have the Samsung Clear protective cover coming and I'll see if I like it - if not, I might just get a clear skin for the back to prevent scratches, but that would be it for me.

    I got the least coverage I could find that included a kickstand. So I purchased this.

    I think it's great and provides minimal coverage, yet I feel that if I were to drop it it'd be covered.

    Man... I wish. Otterbox Symmetry Case + Zagg tempered glass here even tho I don't like the added bulk and touch sensitivity issues. I need to keep this thing protected.

    I usually hate cases but this phone got me to second guess that decision over the weekend since it's a little slippery compared to my HTC 10. Then this morning I thought I might already have some microscratches on the back.

    In the end, I came back to my original decision. What's the point in having such a great looking phone, especially one that feels great in my hand, only to put a case on it and ruin those two features.

    I returned my OB Defender and am now using a Spigen thin case. Absolutely love it.

    I'd rather not have a case but I know myself and have to have my phones in pristine condition at all times.

    I'll be using my s8 with no screen protector on it.

    I'm intending to apply a D Brand skin I'll import from the U.S.

    Not completely naked here, using a Dbrand skin just like I did on my Note 5. I have a case for the phone, but will probably only put it on when I go hiking.

    Not me after watching this video. According to SquareTrade, the S8 is the first phone they've tested that cracked on all 4 sides on the first drop.

    You gotta look at the source for that video. They want that phone to break because it benefits them. Thats why they fail to mention the speaker clears up after the water has been pushed out of the membrane. Also, theres other videos of the screen not breaking for a few drops. The back breaks very quickly though.

    Its hard for me to trust something like this from a company that profits on a users fear.

    @HeavyToka


    I'm in the Uk and just ordered the Black Dragon DBrand skin for the s8.

    Never applied one of these before so please may I ask....

    Is it easy to fit ?

    I've ordered the Back, Camera , front top and front bottom parts ~ If I prefer can I just fit the back piece and camera piece, and leave the front top and front bottom part off ?

    How durable are these dbrand skins ?
