    I took your previous recommendation for this case from a little while back and I regret the purchase. I don't even use the case now. It's WAY more slippery than the actual phone itself. Terrible cover. And it's $20. No good reason it should be $20. If only they could add grip to the back, then it'd be usable. I really wouldn't recommend this case at all to anyone. I wish Peel would make a case for this phone.
    To each his own, I personally love it, don't know how it may feel more slippery for you but again if that's what you think then there is not much I can say about it.

    I mean, everyone is different. My hands might just be more slippery than yours? Who knows...I'm just saying my personal experience is it's more slippery in my hand than the phone itself, and I personally wouldn't recommend it for $20. Not even for $10.

    Update: I just put the case on to compare again and refresh my memory. Admittedly, it's been a few weeks since I had the case on the phone. Instantly took it back off. Way more grip from the glass of the phone itself. Really a waste at that point. But yes, to each their own I suppose. Though it was immediately obvious to me.

    I've seen that before with laptop screens. It works really well with the Infinity display on the S8!
    It's all part of Samsung's marketing and i think they are smashing it It certainly does look really cool. They have various pictures of wales in the ocean, or astronauts in space. I'm definitely going to try this out when we get a Galaxy S8 in the house. Looks like so much fun.

    I wanted that one, but it's out of stock on Amazon and leaving soon for a couple weeks so no time to wait for Samsung's shipping I've even strongly considered going 'naked' with just those full body screen protectors. Won't survive drops though, just scratches.
    This is the one I use. It's a case to just protect from scratches and fingerprints.

    I still hate that I haven't been able to find a case that REALLY doesn't add that much to the borders I really like how the phone looks and feels 'naked', but just can't risk scratching that lovely glass back (and I do use it on by the pool a lot, so rough surfaces).
    Have you tried the spigen slimfit yet ? usually that's my go to for slim cases and the one that added the least amount of bulk.

    This. I have the black Spigen slimfit for my s7. It has a rubberized coating on a hard plastic base. Feels really good and adds grip. Careful though... I heard only the black one feels "rubbery" in the s7 line anyways.

    It gives you a little more grip than naked, not a lot more though, as the material feels very similar to the phone's metal and glass, so it's still a little slippery. But feel in the hands is one of the thing I like the most on this cover, you feels like it's not there, it doesn't change the look or the overall size of the phone and the color (at least on the Orchid Grey) to me, it just enhances the phone color, the Orchid Grey is gorgeous but I love the blueish tint it add to the phone.
    Yes, I agree. I have the Samsung OEM Clear Protective. I generally don't like cases, but like this one because: 1. It gives a little better grip than the phone naked, and 2. You can barely tell there is case on. It is very thin and black one matches to color of black S8+ very well.

    I am not a photographer, so I didn't know how to address the glare from the glass.
    Otherwise the effect is fairly easy to achieve

    I just received my Slickwraps natural series blackened Ash wood back and installed it this morning. I'm in love! I have the minimalism I want. The grip I want. And oh my does that blackened Ash look amazing with the all black s8+!!

    For anyone who doesn't treat their $800-$1000 pieces of tech as frisbees or chew toys for your dog... or children... I highly recommend going this route.

    I can probably get one later when I hang with my girl. Can use her phone to take a pic of mine.

    Here you go. Obviously you don't need to see the front of the phone to showcase the back of it, but it just happened to be 4:20 so I had to :-P

    These pics don't do it justice. Looks soooo good in person.

    P.S... photos taken with my iPhone 7 plus I keep forgetting I still have. A bit of a kick in the 'ol bean bag for Apple using an iPhone to showcase the beauty of an Android device, but hey it's still good for something right? 😁

    I bought this case by Ringke based on this thread (thanks ECM for the recommendation!). Love it! Slimmest case I've ever had and fits my S8 like a glove. Just enough grip to be usable but not overly so. If you're looking for a barely-there case to show off the slim design of your S8, you can't go wrong with this one!

    If anyone likes those super thin skin like cases look on ebay and search cafele, I absolutely love mine. Even ordered another one in white. If you can wait a couple weeks from China is worth saving a few bucks

    Yup, my sentiments exactly! the phone is the best looking phone I've owned in years. Google Nexus/Pixel phones are great for s/w, but Google has to learn how to improve the look and feel of their phones' hardware! Hopefully they'll hit a homerun for the 2nd line of Pixel phones...
    These are pretty minimal...
