Samsung S8 Standing Cover

Samsung's official standing cover has a translucent front, so that you can show off the screen even with the case closed - and still check important info like the time and your notifications without even opening it up. You can even still swipe to answer or reject calls with the case closed.

There's a cut-out at the back for the camera, and the case also has a kickstand so that you can prop the phone up in landscape mode and make the most of that giant display for watching video. It's a little pricey, but this is also one of the best ways to make the most of the S8 screen while still keeping it safe.

it's available in six colours in the UK, and four in the US, and is also available for the S8 Plus at the exact same price.

Carved Galaxy S8 Traveler Wood Case

Carved is a great choice for a case if you like wood as a material.

The US firm has loads of great designs that are handmade and laser cut. The thin and lightweight inlays sit inside a protective rubber case that completely covers the phone's metal frame and buttons. It also has a textured finish on the sides for added grip.

We're particularly impressed by the Satellite series show on the left which looks like a snapshot of earth from space. Carved mixes colours that compliment the grain of the wood and no two Satellite cases are the same so you're getting something truely unique.

If that wasn't enough you can custom make your own with things like maps or artwork with the Carved Case Designer.

View the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus range on Carved starting from $24.

tech21 Evo Check case for Samsung Galaxy S8

A Tech Advisor favourite, you can be sure tech21's Evo Check is a solid, hard wearing option for your S8. Provided you like the design, it comes in several colours and offers drop protection up to 3m.

Easily clipping in and out, the bumpers allows you to place the delicate screen face down and gives access to all ports, buttons and sensors.

Spigen Galaxy S8 Slim Armor CS

If you want a case with a card slot, but don't want to cover up your screen with a wallet case, look no further than Spigen's Slim Armor CS. In addition to protecting your case, it slides open at the back to reveal a slot to store a couple of your most-used cards for easy(ish) access.

Yes, it's a gimmick. Yes, it looks a bit silly. But admit it - you kind of want one, right?

Urban Armor Gear Monarch case for Galaxy S8

For the uber-paranoid (or, more likely, uber-active), Urban Armor Gear's Monarch case is probably the closest you can come to guaranteeing the safety of your S8.

The toughest of the company's impressive protective range, the Monarch boasts what it calls five layer protection: an armour frame, top-grain leather, a polycarbonate plate, alloy metal, and impact-resistant rubber. 

In practice, what that means is that the Monarch feels tough. Solid. Sturdy. Nothing's getting through here. 

The only downsides are that it doesn't offer any additional protection for the screen, beyond the raised edges, and the aesthetic is, well, functional - and only available in one colour, graphite.

Still, it's available for both the S8 and the S8 Plus, and the rest of Urban Armour Gear's range comes in a few more colours, with almost as much protective power.

Mophie Juice Pack for S8 and S8+

If you want protection and extra battery power the market leader is Mophie's wireless Juice Pack.

These battery cases will keep your S8 or S8+ powered up throughout the day - giving the S8 an extra 2,950mAh of charge, and the S8+ a boost of 3,300mAh. Mophie claims this gives you an extra 33 hours of battery life (S8) and 39 hours (S8+).

Both cases are compatible with Qi and other standard wireless charging systems, or you can just push the button on the case to release the extra charge as you need it. 

Despite its low-profile design (73.34 x 160 x 17.57 mm) it offers robust drop, knock and scratch protection, so your precious phone remains not only powered up throughout the day but properly protected too.

Olixar X-Duo Samsung Galaxy S8 Case

This two-piece case from Olixar is stylish and practical. The bumper and back casing attach together to form a decent shock proof layer, but remember the screen is still left uncovered.

The carbon fibre effect back print doesn't show fingerprints, a change from the naked S8 which is a smudge magnet. A decent, affordable case. 

It's available for the S8 Plus here.

Greenwich folio case for Samsung Galaxy S8

This is a premium product with an admittedly premium price, but it's one of the best made cases on the market. It's also one of the best presented, coming as it does in a presentation box with a wax seal.

The case has a simple flap that protects the screen when closes and magnetically folds around to the back when you're using the S8. Made from European bullhide leather, it comes with a lifetime warranty and is sturdy enough to protect the phone from most drops and accidents.

For £10 more, check out Greenwich's S8 Plus case.

Samsung S8 LED Cover

The LED cover may block your view of the S8's screen, but it does make up for it with a rather nifty gimmick: built-in LEDs (in case you hadn't guessed from the name).

You just have to press the phone's power button to activate the LEDs, which can give you info on the time, alarms, battery, calls, messages, and music, with 54 different icons available to set for specific callers. You can also swipe on the closed case to answer and reject calls, and there's a card pocket on the inside for good measure.

The UK gets the LED case in six colours, while the US gets six, and it's available for the S8 or S8 Plus.

Tech21 Galaxy S8 Pure Clear Case

If you want a bit of protection while making the most of Samsung's gorgeous phone design, Tech21's clear case is probably a good choice. 

As the name suggests, it's entirely transparent, so won't obstruct your view of that giant screen or the rest of the phone's design, but it still offers 2m/6.6ft drop protection, so you can still have peace of mind. 

It's available for both the S8 and S8 Plus, and is the same price in either size.

Caseology Parallax for Galaxy S8

Caseology's Parallax case offers a decent compromise between protection and aesthetics. 

The shock-absorbent TPU and polycarbonate shell should protect your S8 from and bumps or drops, while the textured grip along the edges should help prevent those drops in the first place. 

It also makes up for the slightly drab design of the back of Samsung's phone by replacing it with a subtle geometric design, available in either black or burgundy. And don't worry, you can grab it for the S8 Plus too.

Kanex EdgeGlass for Galaxy S8

If all you're worried about is keeping that big ol' screen safe from ugly cracks, then you might want the Kanex EdgeGlass.

Fancy name aside, this is pretty straightforward: it's a scratch-resistant screen cover for the S8. It's made of tempered glass, and is designed to go completely from edge to edge, so should give complete protection - to the front of the phone at least. 

Right now there's only a listing for the regular S8 version, and it's not available yet, but you can sign up to find out when it releases - we'd expect it around the same time as the S8 itself.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Alcantara Cover

If you've looked at the S8 and worried that it just doesn't look fuzzy enough, Samsung's official Alcantara case might be your new best friend.

The colourful case gives your phone a suede-like feel, and is also sturdy - and stain-resistant. Since it's an official Samsung case, you can also trust it'll be a great fit too. 

The Alcantara is available to order in the UK in four colours for either the S8 or S8 Plus - though there's no sign of US availability yet.

Peel case for Samsung Galaxy S8

You can keep the S8 or S8 Plus' curved lines in tact with this case from Peel. It offers a slimness not found with many other cases and hugs the design with full access to ports.

It wont stop the beautiful display from smashing should you drop it, but it solves the fingerprint issue the phones have and make it grippier, while protecting it from dinks and surface scratches.

Ted Baker Galaxy S8 Range

Ted Baker has a range of Galaxy S8 cases available (though so far none for the S8 Plus), showing off a range of the company's designs. 

Most notable are the floral folio cases with a mirror inside ("for on-the-go pampering"), though if you'd rather look at your phone than yourself, there's also a more straightforward shell case. It's not all flowers and glitter either - the SS17 Boatsee case comes in a more restrained navy fabric finish.

Griffin Survivor Clear for Samsung Galaxy S8

Griffin make great cases for most flagship phones, and its S8 and S8 Plus range is exceptional.

The Survivor clear here is a no nonsense bumper and rear cover affair, also available here for the S8 Plus.

If you want something with more bulk and drop protection, you might want to go for the Survivor Strong for the S8 or the S8 Plus.

Speck Presidio for Galaxy S8

Speck boasts that its phone cases are 'designed for impact', so much so that they're built out of none other than 'Impactium', which we're pretty sure they just made up - but as long as it works, we don't mind, and it supposedly offers up to 10-feet of drop protection.

The Presidio cases are sturdy but slim, and should provide ample protection to the body of the phone. They don't cover the screen, but are raised enough at the sides to offer those bezel-less edges a little extra protection.

You can pick up the normal Presidio in a variety of plain colours, but for the same price we prefer the Presidio Grip models - the two-tone ridged design looks great, and protects against slippy fingers.

As you'd expect, you can grab the same range for the S8 Plus too.

RhinoShield CrashGuard Bumper for Galaxy S8

A bumper case is always a great option if you want to shield your phone from the worst of drop damage without covering it up too much, and RhinoShield's CrashGuard is one of the good 'uns. 

Its 'ShockSpread' technology means your S8 should survive drops of at least 11 feet (no, we didn't choose to test that with our review phone...), and RhinoShield claims it exceeds military drop test standards. The bumper is lightweight and super slim too, so you can hopefully almost forget its even there. 

Naturally, the downside of a bumper is the screen itself is unprotected, but for most drops and falls, it'll do the job.

You can grab the CrashGuard case for either the S8 or the S8 Plus, and it's available in black, grey, or dark blue.

Mujjo Leather Case for Galaxy S8

Mujjo's leather cases are usually great for offering a premium, understated aesthetic, and their lineup for the Galaxy S8 looks no different. 

Available in either black or tan leather, this is a simple shell case that lets you make the most of the S8 screen and maintains a slim profile for the phone - and head here for the S8 Plus version.

Speck Presidio Clear and Print for Galaxy S8

If you're looking for something a little more ornate, Speck also offers a range of clear cases for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, some of which also boast intricate designs. 

You can grab a totally clear case to show off the phone to the utmost, a glittery variant if you need a bit more bling, or one with a floral print if you find the back of the S8 a bit too plain. 

As with the normal Presidio and Presidio Grip, the Clear cases are made with 'Impactium', but they offer a slightly lower eight-feet of drop protection thanks to a slightly different design - though that should still be enough for most of us.

Bugatti Parigi for Galaxy S8

The Bugatti Parigi case offers something a little more old-fashioned to complement the cutting-edge S8. 

This slick folio case is made from full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather, but has a few modern conveniences included. There are magnets in the lining for easy closing, a small slot on the front so that you can take calls while the case is still closed, and a subtle card slot on the back so you can ditch your wallet too.

You can also grab it for the S8 Plus.

Moshi Napa Case for Galaxy S8

The Moshi Napa is a pretty simple snap-on case that combines a shock-absorbing inner shell with a shatterproof frame, together with a vegan leather back and a slick metal speed stripe at the bottom.

You can grab it for the S8 or S8 Plus, and if you're not a fan of the leather finish then look at the similar Tycho, which has a hardshell finish.

Olixar Galaxy S8 ArmourDillo

If you're a bit less concerned with preserving the aesthetic and a bit more concerned with having an "impact-resistant polycarbonate exoskeleton" wrapped around your phone, the ArmourDillo might be for you.

It's not much of a looker, but it should keep your phone safe without breaking the bank, and it has a textured non-slip grip, and a small kickstand for landscape viewing. 

You can get it in all-black, or with red or blue accents, and there's also an S8 Plus version.

Snakehive Vintage Leather Wallet for Galaxy S8

Designed in the UK and hand-crafted in Europe, Snakehive's vintage leather cases are a great way to class up your Galaxy S8 without breaking the bank. 

The nubuck leather is soft to the touch, meaning it a) feels nice, and b) won't scratch up your screen. The wallet also boasts a magnetic clasp, and slots for three cards and some notes.

Snakehive's S8 range includes a few different colours, including some two-tone variants and some pretty snazzy pastel tones, most of which are also available for the S8 Plus.

X-Doria Galaxy S8 Defense Shield

If you want to keep your S8 safe without sacrificing on style (or spending the price of the phone all over again), you might like X-Doria's Defense Shield. 

The case boasts an aluminium frame with clear polycarbonate backing, and a rubber bumper to bear the brunt of any impacts - it can apparently survive drops up to 3m/10ft onto concrete.

The metal frame is also customisable - you can pick between black, rose gold, or the garish 'iridescent'.

It's available for the S8 Plus too.

Terrapin Low Profile Wallet for Galaxy S8

Terrapin's Low Profile Wallet is one of the cheapest wallet cases for the S8 and S8 Plus, so it's ideal for anyone who's already broken the bank on the phone and doesn't want to do the same for a case.

It's made of imitation leather, features a magnetic side clasp that's easy to use and adds minimal bulk, and can be turned on its side for a viewing stand.

The build quality isn't fantastic, but for less than a tenner we can't complain. Check out the rest of Terrapin's S8 range here.

Gear4 Piccadilly for Galaxy S8

Gear4's Piccadilly case is another one designed to show off the S8's hardware, though it promises to do so without compromising on protection. 

The clear case is made with metallic D3O to prevent impact damage, combined with a UV coating to make it scratch-resistant. It won't block access to any ports, and comes in a range of colours intended to complement the S8 itself, including orchid grey, black, coral blue, and more (though only black is currently available to pre-order).

As with most S8 cases, there's a larger variant for S8 Plus owners too.

Obliq Slim Meta Chain for Galaxy S8

Here's something a little different. Obliq's Slim Meta Chain pairs a polycarbonate core with an elaborate chainmail-style backplate, so your phone can look just as protected as it hopefully is.

There's a 1.5mm front lip to make sure that the phone screen doesn't get scratched when you place it face down, though the case as a whole is slim enough that it won't add much bulk to your device. 

It's available in three colours: Titanium Silver (pictured), Gunmetal, and Rose Gold. Bear in mind that right now it's only available for the regular S8, not the Plus.
