Samsung Galaxy S8 cases: protect that Infinity Display
Product: Hardware Group Test | Publisher: Steel Media Ltd | Format: Android
Updated 11th January: We've added some new cases to keep your Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ safe in the New Year.

Samsung had one particularly massive failure in 2016 with the exploding Galaxy Note 7 debacle. But don't forget that it also launched its two best ever phones in the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has been on the market for approaching a year now, and has gone a considerable way towards restoring Samsung's reputation. It's an awesome phone.

The S8 (we're treating it as one phone despite there being a second, larger model) is a delight to look at, is capable of withstanding full submersion in water, has the best display and one of the best cameras on the market, and is also among the most powerful.

Needless to say, the Galaxy S8 family has been a huge seller for Samsung, spawning a healthy case scene. Here are just some of the excellent cases on the market.

Beyza Arya Folio P

If you'd prefer a more traditional folio case to Samsung's funky LED View effect, Beyza has you covered. This is a quality chunk of leather that wraps around the Galaxy S8's svelte form and doubles as a stand. There's space for a card or two on the inner sleeve, too.

Suggested price: £30
Buy from MobileFun

Obliq Slim Meta

If you want a no-nonsense rugged case without paying a premium, the Obliq Slim Meta might be for you. It's got shock-resistant corners with the brand's AirSpring technology and a healthy lip to keep that beautiful display safe.

Suggested price: £12
Buy from Amazon

Tech21 Pure

The Galaxy S8 is arguably the most beautiful phone on the market (we love you too iPhone X), so it makes sense to go for a clear case that lets that design shine through. The Tech21 Pure does so while retaining five foot drop protection.

Suggested price: £25
Buy from Amazon

Spigen Ultra Hybrid

Spigen is another of the top case makers out there, and the Ultra Hybrid combines subtle semi-transparent looks with a reassuring air-cushioned bumper that will absorb most droppages.

Suggested price: £10

Samsung Original S8 Plus Alcantara Case

Samsung's taking a cue from its innovative phone designs and trying new things with its S8 covers. This one uses alcantara material to provide plush protection.

Suggested price: £25
Buy from Amazon

Samsung Cover for Galaxy S8

Here's another prime example of Samsung's newly outré approach to case design. The Samsung Cover basically entails two distinct bits of plastic - one that covers the top of the phone and one that covers the bottom. It's a bit of a Marmite approach, to be honest, but at least it's different.

Suggested price: £7
Buy from Amazon

Samsung Galaxy S8 Clear Protective Cover

Not a fan of Samsung's adventurous new case approach? Don't worry, it's still got some no-nonsense alternatives, like this skinny clear plastic cover.

Suggested price: £4
Buy from Amazon

Samsung Galaxy S8 Keyboard Cover

Do you pine for the days of BlackBerry and those clunky Android phones with slide-out physical keyboards? Then have we got the Galaxy S8 case for you. Slide the keyboard section into place on the bottom third of the phone, and the screen will automatically resize to suit. When you want to go full-screen, it clips onto the back.

Suggested price: £37
Buy from Amazon

Samsung LED View Case for Galaxy S8

The Samsung LED View Case has a lot going for it. It's got a folio form factor, so your Galaxy S8 will be well protected when not in use, and there's a nifty LED display feature that shines pertinent information through the front cover. You can even deal with calls and alarms without opening it.

Suggested price: £34
Buy from Amazon

Mujjo Leather Case for Samsung Galaxy S8

If you're after something a little classy for your classy new Sammy, consider this full-grain leather beauty from Mujjo. It tightly encases the rear and sides, but also has enough of a lip to grant a measure of protection to that beautiful infinity display.

Suggested price: £45
Buy from Amazon

Olixar ArmourDillo

At almost the complete opposite end of the scale to the Mujjo in all but basic form is this. You don't buy from the Olixar ArmourDillo range if you're bother about your Galaxy S8 retaining its svelte looks - you buy it for robust twin-layered shock protection and a handy horizontal kickstand.

Suggested price: £8
Buy from Amazon

Speck Presidio

Perhaps more than any other phone, the urge to maintain the look of the Galaxy S8 will be strong. It's a stunning design. This effort from Speck seems to surround the Galaxy S8 with a transparent bubble, allowing its looks to shine through while offering good protection to the back and sides.

Suggested price: £13
Buy from Amazon
