    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).

    I've seen that before with laptop screens. It works really well with the Infinity display on the S8!

    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...

    Then buy the Samsung OEM Clear protective case, perfect combo of barely there, perfect for protection against glass back scratches, it comes in the same colors of the phone making it look even better IMHO on my Orchid Grey with a more solid Blueish tone plus good enough protection against drops (Mine has hit the floor twice in the past week from waist height, first time ever) and thanks God nothing has happened.

    Take a picture of something in 18.5:9 (7.9m) ratio and then set your phone down on whatever you took the picture of so it blends in and then take a picture of that with another phone or camera. Really cool.

    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.

    As of right now on Amazon US, all colors for the S8+ are in Stock and for the S8 all except the Orchid Grey, so don't tell me you have an S8 Orchid Grey. If yes, that's pure bad luck. Check it on eBay I've seen them also there.

    I love this cover, all the rest from Spigen and Ringke (4 more in total) are just collecting dust since I got this one more than a month ago.

    I have a Ringer one and they're good but they're NOT slim or unnoticeable. It's actually one of the brands that always gives me trouble with IQ shields 'case friendly' protectors. They're not huge, but they're definitely noticeable and kinda make the curves disappear (and the infinity display not look so infinite anymore).

    Have you tried the Ringke Slim? It's what I use when I want a bit more protection than just my dbrand skin.

    How does the Samsung OEM case feel in the hand? Is it slippery at all or grippy?

    Here you go. You will be amazed how thin this is. I call it a skin case. So so so so freaking thin. Just a paper wrap

    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.

    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.

    Minus the logo on the back, which is still tolerable, this looks like exactly what I'm looking for! Would you say it provides better grip than the phone itself?

    Slippery. Extremely slippery. Stay away. Better grip with the actual phone, which is really saying something.

    Very very slippery. The only draw back of this case. Everything else about this case is fantastic, only if you are looking for a case that is basically a skin. You will be shocked how thin it is, you will even forget there is a case on lol

    Darn. It being slippery is a deal breaker. Oh well, thanks for your response!

    I bought the Samsung case, and it was very minimalist like I want, but a bit slippery. I'm back to my Spigen Thin Fit and it us my favorite out of 5 I've tried.
