    No problem! That far of a drop I'm not sure. I have a skinomi liquid skin full coverage for the screen and the dbrand skin on the back. I assume the liauid skin would protect my front screen from a normal drop height but I'm unsure if the dbrand would fully protect the back as it's more for display and grip. Right now I do have a case on it. I'll post a pic. I go back and forth but most of the time when I'm out and about I typically will throw my case on. This case to me is a little thick but I have two more cases on the way that I think are just a tad slimmer. I have a Red one coming and a Blue. Both are the exact same case. One will arrive on Monday. Here's what I have on mine right now.

    Thanks for answering, no doubt that your phone looks gorgeous in the dbrand skin. I bought three cases or covers for my S8+ ; OtterBox Defender, Spigen Rugged Armor and RhinoShield Bumper(check out the screen shot there they are). The real truth is that I'm very impress with the RhinoShield Bumper, it's just a Bumper the front screen and the back of the phone stay naked, but my S8+ took a seven feet fall dress in that Bumper and is in perfect condition.

    Not me I use a case and just purchased a screen protector. Too much glass to go without any protection in my opinion.

    Leather folio case. That way I can at least keep the screen naked.

    My S8+ goes naked when at home and I have a blue/silver Spigen Neo Hybrid case for when I'm out. It's such a great looking and feeling phone, I wish I could do without a case all of the time.

    I saw a review on YouTube about that rhino shield. I wished they made one in Red. I still may get it though. They are not cheap though. About 25 dollars but they obviously do the job as it protected your phone on a massive drop. I need to get one. Thanks for sharing.

    Any worries about damaging your screen over time by abrasion? The reason I ask is that I have the Spigen S-View flip cover, and when I use it, the credit card holders leave an impression on my Armorsuit film protector. It goes away in a few hours, but it's annoying, and I worry that without any protection this could damage my screen.

    It's probably nothing to worry about. But on the other hand, we've been hearing since the Note 7 that Gorilla Glass 5 is very poorly resistant against minor scratches.

    You are always welcome. The first case I bought, even before my S8+, was the Spigen Rugged Armor. Then bought the phone and the OtterBox Defender, this time there's wasn't a plastic screen protector at the Defender. People post that they find the Defender lightweight this time, but I found it heavy like the one at my Google Pixel XL and my former Galaxy S6. So I used the Defender at my S8+ around eight or nine days, then the RhinoShield Bumper arrived. Right now my phone is dress with the Spigen Rugged Armor, this one is kind of handsome case but don't get wrong with it cause it already took a fall face down around two to three feet tall and the S8+ is perfect. I know to many falls, as years pass me by my arms and hands are not was they used to be when BlackBerry and Android phones came to play. So since my former Galaxy S6 days the falls began, that's the reason I use OtterBox Defender, but they are heavy. It's a good thing, for me at least, that the Spigen Rugged Armor and the RhinoShield Bumper are working fine taking the falls at my S8+.

    So I am sure this has been discussed but I cannot figure out how to search for it on Tapatalk. I am curious if anyone is using their S8/S8+ naked (the phone...not you lol). If so, how's it holding up? I am personally using a UAG Pathfinder and a Bodyguards tempered glass.
    I highly suggest not going naked. Either you'll end up dropping the phone because it's VERY slippery (curved edges, all glass back) or it'll get micro scratches all over. My work S8 phone was severely scratched up after normal use. Gorilla Glass 5 is the easiest to scratch despite being more shatter resistant. For some strange reason, the front glass scratches much easier than the back, maybe the glass finish is different?

    Using a phone these days, especially since it's all about fashionable glass and metal, is dangerous business.

    Had thick clear plastic backing with the usual 10,000x Verizon markup.

    I love the sun. Getting naked in my back yard on a hot, sunny, day is a pleasure that I cannot live without.

    Oh, wait...

    That's not what you were talking about, is it?

    I like minimal sandstone finish cases with my black (usually) phones so its usually the IMAK Cowboy case or Bear Motion Sandstone cases.

    I went naked for 2 months and then finally broke down and got a case simply to give me some more grip (S8 is too skinny).

    Now when I take it out of the case, I'm reminded why I don't like them. The phone looks so much nicer without one.

    I've dropped the phone a total of 3 times, all inside. Twice without the case and once with it. All ended up on the wood floor. Nothing happened any of those times, thankfully. I dread ever dropping it on concrete though. A case will do nothing nothing about cracks in that situation, only scratches.

    I know this question is subjective and it will differ from person to person. But in a world full of dust, dirt, and grit...are cases really worth it? It seems a lot of cases trap an abrasive material and can still cause micro scratches. I am curious others thoughts on this?

    A good case will pqy for itself with one drop of your $800.00 device.
    Once on, and dust and dirt will be kept out.
    Now a "good case" is also subjective.
    I try them all and, for me, keep coming back to the Otterbox line.
    Using the Commuter one for my S8+.

    Anyway, a case is highly recommended. Which one is up to you.

    Do you use a screen protector and a protector for the back of your S8? I ask only bc it's all glass and one good drop could potentially be a disaster. Shattered glass. I use a case about half the time but I've also got a back skin and front screen protector. I'm just worried about that one fatal drop that would destroy the huge investment of the S8. I know for a fact I wouldn't use one it I had the S8 plus as I don't like bulk and the plus is already huge. I use the regular S8 and I like the way it feels in one hand without a case but still though I use a case at times. Around the house I dont use one but when I leave the house I throw on a slim profile case.

    I feel strongly that a phone should have a case, I've had them on all of mine since my first expensive phone in 2012 the Galaxy S3. I worked for Verizon for 4 years, I'd say over 75% of people used a case, and the majority of the phone repairs or insurance claims we did were for people with no case and dropped the phone.

    My S7 was the first phone I had that got scratched from debris inside the case, dumb glass back design. I now take my phone out of the case to wash it off occasionally.

    Personally I prefer no case, but I've seen far too many broken phones to risk it myself.
