    Novelty over functionality

    I have been a fan of the wallet style cases since the galaxy S3 days. These cases also protect the screen. It is no longer mandatory to purchase a separate screen protector. This case also has LEDs that will display the time, your % battery remaining when you are charging the phone, and even customizable icon notifications for calls and messages. It also has a slot for credit cards, although that may affect the ability for the flap to close flush. Even without a card present, the flap does not stay down, as magnets are not employed in this design. That is slightly frustrating. The major downfall that sets this case apart from the rest is that you cannot adjust the screen to remain on when you close the front flap. For example, if you do not want to pay for a subscription to youtube red, which is the only way for an android to continue to stream videos in standby mode, you will need to leave the screen on while you close the flap and put the phone in your pocket. That is not possible with this case. Although their is an app that allows for customization, you cannot override this feature. Each time you close the phone, the screen turns off, and turns on again once you open the flap. This is one of the main reasons I choose to use wallet style cases over other types. I stream a great deal of media while working, but it is undesirable to have a video playing constantly in sight of co-workers and mgmt, as others may get the wrong impression. I choose to LISTEN to something while working in order to keep my mind active, and at peace. This case completely defeats that purpose altogether. If you use other sources, such as iheartradio, pandora, spotify, or tune in, this may not be an issue for you. Youtube has a greater diversity of real music, and wholesome content that I prefer. I will be returning this product, as I am deeply disappointed in this critical design flaw.

    Very Cool LED flip cover

    This conservative looking cover is just sooo cool. I have it for my Samsung S8+ and love it. I used to have my phone in an otterbox, but this is SO MUCH BETTER. First off, it's easier to take your phone out if you have to. I have the oculus and if I want to use that I need the phone out of the case. Next, if your looking at anything, and shut the cover the time shows up in LED lighting. And when you open it back up, you don't have to swipe, etc. you're already on the same page you were when you closed the cover. And even more, the LED program that showed up on my phone, allows you to customize the lights for specific contacts in your phone. I put the "heart" for when my wife calls. When an alarm is set, or your receiving a call, you can "swipe" on the closed cover and either turn off or answer the call or alarm, etc. Very cool cover. I'm really impressed with it. I can still use either of the power chargers I have, the corded or wireless one while my phones in the case.

    What else can I say I already posted something about a black case but I think I did it wrong because then other review was for my wife's phone case, violet color there's no difference about what I think of both cases since my wife and me love them alot, either color you choose you'll enjoy it, even my wife say her violet color looks better then my black color of course I won't use a violet colornot only because looks girly but because I prefer black and because goes whit my phone color as well by the way I got arctic silver S8+ and my wife got the orchid gray S8+. Thank you to read my post, hope this help you get the perfect one.

    Exchanged for the Clearview flip case

    The led idea was neat, however two things that made me exchange the product: 1) to view your notifications on the cover, it has to cycle through each one instead of just showing you a quick glimpse of all at once. For example, I would turn the screen on with the cover closed and first it would display the time, then a few seconds later a text message icon, wait for that to fade and then social media notifications would display next. I found myself just opening the cover to see a quick view of all notifications right on the phone. Defeats the purpose of this case. 2) the cover has texture to it so while this may be good for some, for me with sliding it in and out of my back pockets - not so much. I exchanged it for the flip clear view cover which I LOVE!

    I never used to be a fan of flip cover phone cases, but after purchasing this case, my opinion has changed. It might have to do with the LED tech incorporated into the case, but I'm really enjoying the functionality of it. I like the idea of not having to actually open the case to see who I'm receiving calls from or to see when I have received a text (my notification sound is applied to several apps). The price was definitely higher than I wanted to pay for a case, but I was desperate at the time. So far, I don't regret the purchase, but I would recommend trying to find it cheaper before buying it.

    Cool concept not practical

    I was intrigued when I first saw it thought I'd give it a try. I've had it on my phone for about a week, I'm going back to my Otter Box. I'm on my phone a lot so the case is open most of the time. Holding the phone becomes awkward because the lid is heavy so my phone is sliding out of my hand. The lid now doesn't stay closed when the phone is flat because, like a book, the spine has weakened. Taking pictures is a pain and and the LCD on the cover only works when you press the power button on the phone. Good protection when the lid is closed so not worried about scratches, but more cumbersome than practical. I probably should have read a review first but I'm a little impulsive.

    Good case, expensive though if not on sale

    I was a little skeptical about this case at first, especially with the price, but I'm happy I purchased it. The quality on this case is great. Being able to program caller names to the case so you can see who it is without opening is great. As far as the card holder (which I don't use but I tested it), one card max. You can fit two very snug, but then the cover doesn't close all the way. Only thing that I wish it would do is have it also display who texts are from. I purchased for $60, but got lucky and it went on sale the following week for $39, so I was able to her the difference back. With all said and done, I am happy I made this purchase.

    Minimalist and Perfect

    This is the perfect case/cover if you don't like carrying a lot on you. It has a slot inside the front cover for just and ID or Driver's License. It's recommended you do not place any other types of cards, because there is a small current that flows to the cover from your cellphone and may potentially damage your cards. However, with these new methods of paying (Samsung Pay, Android Pay) all available on most new phones, you don't need to carry a thick wallet anymore. The LED cover notifications are customizable with the included app. It has a good look to it and it's pretty sturdy. I've bought the same style of cover for two separate phones.

    This case holds my phone securely and it has so many features. The phone numbers of incoming calls scrolls across the outside of the case when closed and you can answer without even opening the case. Also when an alarm goes off, an alarm clock will illuminate on the outside of the case and you can silence the alarm from there. When charging the outside of the case will show a battery icon and % of charge. This case is so cool! I have never seen anything like it and I totally love this case! I recommend this case to everyone! It is so convenient and cool!

    I like the wallet style case for my smartphones for the last few android phones. It functions as a built-in screen protection and will handle an accidental drop . I like the LED readout on the front of the case and especially helpful when I am at a meeting and have my phone at my desk. Only downside when taking pictures, I have to flip the cover open and awkwardly balance the phone to take a pic. When I am on vacation and know there will be lots of pictures taking for memories, I use an Otterbox hard case which provides the convenience I need.

    I bought this case because I was moving my apps every time I took my phone out of my purse to use it. I really like the case, bu it does have some drawbacks. If the top isn't totally down on the phone face it doesn't pick up that you have a text, etc. Having to fold the top back can make it not lay flat when it is closed. I do like that it tells you the time, percentage of charge when plugged in, test message and the phone number of caller scrolls across the screen.

    More about style than protection

    It's decent in my opinion nothing to exciting about it. Did Dropped my phone with the case on and when it landed the phone popped out. Can't see LED notification lights flash when the cover is on. It's also a pain to use the finger print if you sign in that way since the case is bulky and kinda blocks it. When you have your phone open you have to make sure you hold the flap down or it keep closing on you and keep Turing your screen off.

    This is, without doubt, the best smartphone cover I've ever owned. The genuine Samsung cover is a giant leap forward in technology. The dot matrix Lee's are a real laugh the fact that you don't need to open the cover to answer or reject calls is OUTSTANDING. You can even make up your own LED labels for your contacts. As soon as my son saw my cover he ordered onep himself. Samsung are at the top of their game and I can't wait to see what they develop next.

    It's a great case that covers the phone. I like the fact that it show the status of messages, calls and power. I just wish you could configure it to do more. For example; I wish it would scroll my contacts names when they text or call, don't just show me the icon, scroll the name after. I would also like to see weather temp status after I close it. Cool case never the less. The feeling is premium and so is the look. Well worth the purchase.

    One of the better cases you can buy for the S8+

    This case is pretty awesome. The customization options are fun and it gives you some nice information without ever flipping it open. It's also made of a nice material that isn't a fingerprint magnet and looks pretty good in the blue color. The only con is that sometimes the software that controls the case bugs out and you have to reboot your S8 to fix the issues. At $50 it's a little steep, but at under $30 this is a good value.

    This flip cover doesn't only do the obvious like protecting your phone and card or money storage (which is so much more convenient than I thought), it also lets you customize your notifications. The LED pix tell me for example if I just received a work email or personal etc. I can answer a call without smudging my screen. The cover is also soft to the touch and grippy, plus it stays surprisingly clean! Got lots of compliments on it too.

    I got the cover because my fingers kept moving my apps around and deleting some of them. When I would take it out of my purse something would get moved and I would have to go look for it. This cover keeps this from happening. When I get a text or a phone call it lets me know. It tells me who it is by scrolling the phone number across the top. Haven't lost or moved an app since I got it.

    Galaxy S8 Plus CASE

    this case still looks sleek with the phone inside. It has one pocket slit inside to keep credit cards. However, if you put in only 1 card it still closes tight but when you add in a driver's license or a 2nd card, it does not close as well. Hence, the strike for the 1 star less than perfect. It looks sleek and being able to view the time without opening the case is really a nice feature. I would recommend.

    Fits perfectly fine. Messages display well when cover is closed. Responsive to the touch when answering calls with cover over screen. Love the slim look & feel. Plus the texture and look of the case is pretty cool too. Only 1 down fall when using your fingerprint you will need both hands so you can put your finger behind for it to unlock.
