    I guess I'm surprised to see how many of you got the lilac purple phone. That's what I got too. Wondering if you guys are going no case or clear case? I'm just not feeling the clear case for my phone right now and ended up getting an opaque silicone case. Kinda makes getting the colorful phone pointless. *Shrug*

    Ihave one clear case with black border, and one black case. I can still see some of the lilac in the black Otterbox Symmetry. For me, no case is not an option - these are far too expensive to take that kind of risk. No, I don't have the sticker on it.

    Long story short: Got the S9Plus, returned it to get my $128 back, enjoyed the Note 8 a little more, then ended up moving my # to Verizon, picking up the same color Lilac S9Plus yesterday. Love the phone - main issue I had was the down payment, which Verizon not only didn't charge, but I got a rebate for switching and am getting a $150 reward in the mail in about 2 weeks.

    I'm going case free at home and using a clear case when I go somewhere. It's too pretty to cover up.

    I bought the Case Mate Sheer Crystal case upon the recommendation of another poster here. It is a clear case with sparkles. Here is a link: https://case-mate.com/clear-sheer-cr...sung-galaxy-s9

    It is a two piece case and is supposed to be good protection. It is clear and looks good and the color of the phone shines through with the sparkles! I am very happy with it. I agree that it is a shame to cover up the beautiful lilac color!

    I got two cases that are clear with floral designs. I love them especially the one with purple flowers. They aren't the most protective cases out there but I finally got a phone that wasn't white or black so I wanted to be able to show it off.

    I was using an Otterbox Symmetry case on my Samsung galaxy note 8 and I dropped my phone from 4 feet, face down on the cement, and cracked my screen!..
    Unless Otterbox improves that case, select another case( in that line)...

    Clear cases remind me of how my grandma would put clear covers on her couch so I use a good looking case when warranted and go caseless when I want to showcase the color of my phone. Good thing cases are removable lol.

    OtterBox made a case with a clear back. I believe it's called the pursuit series.

    I have one all clear case and one all clear with glitter back, both from Spigen. That way you can always see the color. I love it.

    Glad you liked the suggestion. I put it back on my new S9+ Lilac phone but also found a cute case which is girly but reminds me of my sweet golden retrievers. I will prob bounce between these two cases.

    I have the same black and clear case, my only problem is the black edges block the edge lights. I'm still looking for the perfect case

    I currently have a Otterbox Stardust clear case on mine. Very sparkly. I've only had that case on it for a day and half (almost two days) and I'm already thinking of putting the Otterbox Defender case on it. haha. The lights in my room are yellow-ish. So the phone looks mauve / pink.

    Any other phone I would use a clear case but since I gave up using screen protectors on these Samsung Edge/Infinity displays I switched to Wallet cases.

    I got the Samsung LED.

    Why did you give up using screen protectors?

    The Spigen and the other sub $20 I got off amazon didn't last where it collected dust or didn't cover the entire display.

    I got a lilac purple S9 and put a Spigen clear thin fit case on it. My only complaint is that it's rather slippery ... I may try the Spigen thin fit in the lilac purple to see if the grip is better.

    Purple is my fave color! Have a flexi, clear case for now until I figure out what I want. Whatever I get will be clear and/or opaque w/a minimalist design.
