    I upgraded from the Galaxy 6 Edge to the Galaxy 8 last week. As part of the process, the very helpful salesman at Best Buy asked if I needed a new case. I mentioned that I'd like one similar to what I had and at first he was doubtful as he'd not seen that case before. Since I bought it at Best Buy I was hoping for the best, and there it was right in front of us. The case is a MUST HAVE for the Galaxy. The Galaxy case is all glass and prone to cracking. I take pretty good care of my phone, but I will admit to the occasional drop. My 2+ year old Galaxy 6 looked brand new thanks to this very stylish and light case.

    Looks good, but not much else

    The real wood is beautiful and well finished. Unfortunately, the thin plastic case is just a base to hold the wood. No protection, other than maybe back scratches. I guess the upside would be that it adds very little bulk. This case is VERY slick to hold. If all you want is some genuine wood flash, go for it. If you want a case that's easy to hold and provides basic protection, look elsewhere. I ordered over the internet, but returned after I tried it. Had I checked it out in the store first. I would not have purchased.

    This is a very stylish case that looks and feels great. It provides easy access to the fingerprint scanner on the back and the edges of the Galaxy's wide screen but minimal protection for the edges and corners of the phone. Bezel-less phone designs to not allow cases like this one to provide a substantial raised case edge that would meet the ground instead of the glass screen. This is part of the trade-off of having a beautiful edge-to-edge screen and not something a case, even one as attractive and well made as this one, can fix.

    I had the similar style case on my Galaxy S6 when it fell and cracked, but I've also seen the case slid on it's edge on concrete with no damage to the phone. This one fits well, looks like it covers the edges well, and while a bit thicker than I would have liked, I think will provide the better edge protection because of it. I love the wood look though.

    I was looking for a minimalist cover for my new GS8. Already had an Otterbox beast and wanted something that would fit in my pocket nicely. This item did the trick. Only reason it's not a 5 star is because it doesn't protect the edges completely. Maybe a little too minimalist. However, the nice wood veneer on the back overrode that and so I bought it. Use it every day.

    Perfect balance of protection and thinkness

    I wanted a case that wasnt slippery but wasn't cheap either. This case has cutouts for the buttons which are superior imo to the button overlays that other cases have. The wood design is random on each case. Maybe it's real wood? I can take or leave the look of it, but it was by far the best feeling case in the store.

    Very nice looking case and fits well, but not real wood. My daughter scratched the back a little the first night and I figured, no problem a little wood oil or furniture polish and it will not be so noticeable, well this is when I found out this was actually plastic. Took it back the next day.

    The Samsung Galaxy S8 is without a doubt the most beautiful, polished phone I've ever held. These words were true when I first reviewed it in April, and are still true a month on. I do have some additional insights since then -- scroll down a bit for those.
