These great cases will keep your Galaxy S8 chugging along for years

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is getting on in years, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't still pick up one of the best Galaxy S8 cases to protect one if you're still using it. Whether you bought your phone on Day One or decided to buy the Galaxy S8 this year, you want this phone to last you as long as it can, so buy it a case that will protect it in style!

Never fails

Spigen Neo Hybrid

Staff Pick

The Neo Hybrid is not just our favorite Spigen case of all time; it's one of our favorite case series period. The dual-layer construction is slim but still protective, and for the S8, the color combos available are great, like pale dogwood and coral blue and black.

Pretty and protective

i-Blason Ares

While most multi-layered cases hide all of your phone's delicate features from view and harm, the Ares lets the beauty of your S8's glass back shine through the clear polycarbonate, aided and complemented by bold accents like creamy pink or vivid green.

The glass standard

Spigen Liquid Crystal

If you want a case that will cover the phone's glass against scuffs and scrapes while still not hiding a single inch of the device's beauty, Spigen's Liquid Crystal is simply the best around. I'm partial to the Liquid Crystal Glitter variant, but the regular clear case is great on its own.

Light on your wallet

CASEOWL Detachable Wallet Case

CASEOWL offers a wallet case that will keep your Galaxy S8 safe and secure while also letting you keep your traditional wallet at home. This case actually comes in two pieces, with a premium leather TPU case to house your Galaxy S8, and then the wallet, which features eight card slots and a photo window.

Thin and colorful

Anccer Ultra Thin

This hard candy shell case is as darling as it is durable. While Anccer usually has almost a dozen color options for flagship phones, after two years, the stock has been whittled down to four colors: Dark, Gravel Black, and Gravel Green.

Clear and colorful

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Style

This clear case is a bit more rugged and a lot bolder than the Spigen Liquid Crystal, resulting in a case that is striking in its own right while still putting the S8's delightful design front and center as the star. There are four two-tone colors available, and they're all winners.

Diamond in the rough

UAG Plasma

The translucent models like the Citron, Ice, and Ash are beautiful, letting some Samsung branding through while still defending your phone from scuffs, dings, drops and shatters as only UAG can. The Rust finish covers the entire back and gives you a bold color if preferred.

From $15 at Amazon

Ultra slim

Ringke Slim

This ultra-slim case from Ringke offers a flexible and durable TPU shell, gripping your S8 tight and absorbing some of the shock should it take a small tumble from your pocket. Since this case is so slim, it's sure to work with just about any wireless chargers you may have around your house, while even sporting a cutout for a lanyard if you want to tie your S8 to your wrist.

$10 at Walmart

Tough and tested

OtterBox Commuter Series

OtterBox remains one of the most well-known and well-trusted names in heavy-duty cases, and the Commuter Series balances bulk and protection better than the more hulkish Defender Series. Available in black, this rugged case is built for real-world conditions.

$24 at Amazon

Familiar design

JETech Protective Cover

The JETech Protective Cover offers a familiar design with the combination of a soft matte finish on the back, along with carbon fiber accents at the top and bottom. To add even more grip to your Galaxy S8, JETech included the carbon fiber material along each side of the case.

From $6 at Amazon

Get a ring

BENTOBEN Silicone Ring Holder Case

The BENTOBEN Silicone Ring Holder Case is rather unique in that it doesn't only feature a ring on the back to remove the need for something like a PopSocket. But this ring holder also works with select car mounts that rely on magnets to keep your phone in place while you're on the road.

$11 at Amazon

Rainbow of colors

Crave Dual Guard Case

Choose from a rainbow of color options with this shockproof, dual-layer case that doesn't just look pretty - it also provides sufficient protection for the delicate S8. From basics like black and slate to fun finishes like mint and red, it's the perfect case to show off your personal style.

Snag one of the best Galaxy S8 cases

While all of these cases are highly-rated and worthy of protecting your precious flagship, alas, your phone can only wear one case at a time. While the Spigen Neo Hybrid is so luxurious in hand you probably won't ever want to take it off, the i-Blason Ares with its built-in screen protector and vivid color accents will protect your phone with its life on a weekend hiking trip or out to your uncle's ranch.

On the lighter side of the spectrum, Anccer Ultra Thin cases have been our go-to thin cases for the last couple of years because they're affordable and vibrant. Speaking of vibrant, if you want to show off the S8's glass back while still keeping it super-duper secure, the Supcase Unicorn Beetle Style has a crystal clear back paired with two-tone hybrid bumpers to offer you the best of all worlds. Plus, the blue and purple models are taunting me with their loveliness.

Note that Samsung has ended software support for the Galaxy S8 smartphone, so if you are still hanging on to one as your primary device, it's worth considering upgrading to one of the newer devices. Go all out and spoil yourself with the Galaxy S21 or just grab a device from 2019 onward that is still being supported.

How to watch England vs New Zealand: Live stream 2nd Test series cricket on

With the first Test ending in a draw, the series is on a knife edge at Edgbaston, as Joe Root's side look to put off the field controversies to one side and claim a much needed win against the Kiwis. Don't miss a single ball of the 2nd Test with our England vs New Zealand live stream guide below. The series has been somewhat overshadowed by the emergence of offensive historic tweets posted by Ollie Robinson who made his debut in the opening Test but has since been suspended. With the controversy still brewing amid interventions from politicians and accusations leveled at other members of the team, Root has a battle on his hands to keep his side focused on the game ahead. One positive for Root coming into the game is that they'll be playing in front of a near capacity crowd at Egbaston, with the overwhelming majority of the expected 18,000 spectators set to be cheering on the home side. The tourists have been delivered a huge blow coming intot his final match, with s

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases. Jump to: iPad widgets and app drawer Live Text Apple Maps AR navigation iOS notifications New Siri capabilities Apple Photos Bonus: What Google needs to steal iPad widgets and app drawer iPad OS 15 introduced two big new updates for the iPad home screen today: widgets and the App Library.

Every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart

Armor up Ratchet and Rivet before taking down their enemies. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart features several armor sets that both Ratchet and Rivet can wear throughout the game, giving them damage buffs and other benefits. Each armor set is comprised of three pieces; the helmet, chest, and boots. Without all three pieces of a complete set, you won't get their collection bonus buffs. Thankfully, each map tells you exactly where to find the armor you need. It's then all about exploring the area and picking it up. You'll find most pieces within optional dimensional rifts that feature platforming puzzles of some kind, and there are eight total sets to be found. Here's every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and the buffs that they offer: Galactic Ranger Description: The classic helmet of the Solana Galactic Rangers.
