Our list offers everything from thin cases, cheap options, kickstand cases, to heavy-duty protection. We’ve found some priced as low as $5, which is far cheaper than spending $150 to replace a broken screen. You’ll need to spend about $50 to get the most durable cases, or something officially made by Samsung. Additionally, we have real wood cases, leather covers and more to fit any users needs or style.
While we recommend investing in a high-quality case from a trusted brand, even a cheap $5 TPU case is better than nothing. The most expensive cases have screen protectors built-in or use premium materials for a better experience and comfortable grip. As a reminder, the Galaxy S8 is IP68 dust and water-resistant, so waterproof cases aren’t necessary.
We have some premium clear cases too, for those that don’t like covering up the design with a big bulky case. Just keep in mind that thin clear cases might not offer as much protection as the others.
There are so many cases to choose from that some buyers may get overwhelmed. We’ve done the hard work for you. Finding great coverage from big names like Spigen, Speck, Griffin, Incipio, UAG, and much more for the Galaxy S8. With the new Galaxy S9 now available, you can get the Galaxy S8 at a steep discount. Once you do, you’ll want to keep it safe with one of our cases. While you’re here consider checking out some of Samsung’s official accessories for the Galaxy S8.
Samsung Clear View Standing Case ($29)
First are a few Samsung cases then we'll move on to some of the more popular (and cheaper) brands available. As we see every year, Samsung has a decent select of great cases and accessories for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
Our favorite among them is the Clear View Standing Cover. It doubles as a kickstand and folds closed to protect the screen. When shut, the clear front displays the time, date, or battery levels. It's expensive but one of the better cases available.
