    I switch between a Spigen Neo Hybrid and Caseology Parallax on my LG G6.

    Like some of you have said, the Hybrid is firm and someone slippery despite its textured back, but man does it look nice.
    The Parallax is grippy and has a cool texture on the rear, but the paint on the bumper is wearing after 1 month of use.

    Neo Hybrid = Weekday - In the office case
    Parallax = Weekend - At the park with the kids case

    I was going naked for weeks then I just finally bought my first phone case ever. It cost $7 and it's ok, I guess. It adds a little bulk to the phone, but I guess that's ok. I know it won't actually prevent cracks if I drop the phone, but it might protect it from scratches or something and it adds grip to the phone.

    It's this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...cUvbUpU5843733

    Has anyone tried this case? It's the only one I've seen with a built in screen protector. Reviews seem ok.

    I have been thinking about this one but I swap out often and would have to keep replacing my screen protector and I finally found one I like.

    Read the reviews of that case for the S8 and you will get a completely opposite opinion. I don't see how it would be great for the S8+ and abysmal for the S8.

    Those cases tend to trap a ton of dust and dirt under the built in screen and every time you press your dragging that's stuff across your screen. Something to think about.

    Otterbox Strada for me. Had the defender with a glass screen protector. Popped off after 2 days and hated the look anyway. So far I love the Strada. The flip cover protects the naked screen very well..... drop protection, well I hope I never have to find out.

    I, too, went with the Otterbox Defender. Before this case, I absolutely despised these cases as they were so big and chunky, but this is the slimmest yet and I truly feel protected. This phone was way to slick to use naked.

    (and yes, Floss is way too much peer pressure. I had to stop watching him for a while).

    I'm using a Tech 21 case. I've used it on a number of phones. It's slim and provides good grip. The buttons are a little hard to push but they are lossening up.

    You are a case junky I have two. An iBlason with built in stand (using right now) and a basic case with extended corners. That case seems less protective than the iBlason and also find the stand handy.

    Here's the full shot of the Neo, along with my office headphones.
    I could literally listen to music for 8 hours.

    What's your impression of the Zizo? Do you use the tempered glass protector? I may have to get one... heh heh.

    No case for the past few days and I'm loving it, but I do have a Spigen thin fit and the Samsung protective cover. The Spigen I find to be surprisingly slippery. Feels like there's some kind of coating they put on the back or something. I had the same one for my note 5 and it wasn't like that at all. Provided a good amount of grip. This one kinda doesn't, so that's a bit disappointing to me. The Samsung protective cover is abysmal. I'd have an easier time trying to grip a piece of wet ice. Way more slippery than the phone itself. The use of the word "protective" is certainly questionable.

    If anyone knows of an ultra slim, preferably form fitting case that amps up the grip, please let me know.
    Out of all 5 cases I've tried my Spigen Thin Fit with SF coated nonslip matte case is the least slippery. My Spigen Liquid Crystal and the Samsung case are both clear and show off my Orchid Gray phone but too slippery

    I really like the case. It's very similar to the Supcase which is more of a frost in the back as opposed to clear. Same material too. The case comes with a glass protector, but I'm using a Zagg HD (film). The edges of the case are lifted, so I don't know how Glass protector friendly it is. If your looking for a nice case which is protector friendly, I would also recommend the Caseology Parallax. I love that case too...hahha

    Love it. Not too bulky, great grip and protection. I switch between this and my otterbox defender regularly.

    I have a Zizo Flux with their included glass screen protector. It's case friendly also works with my Spigen Neohybrid. But the touch sensitivity isn't great, difficult to swipe from the edges and pinch zooming like in Maps is very frustrating. Might take it off and keep screen naked. Never had these issues with glass on my iPhone.
