    Near impossible to put on

    I got this phone case half off, but still feel it was overpriced! It was nearly impossible to get on the first time. I honestly spent at least 20 minutes trying to get it on properly; it seemed as if it was made too small. There is a material in each of the corners that makes it so difficult to properly pull over the phone corners. Eventually I had to grab a pair of tweezers and pry a space between the phone and the cover to eliminate the problem, which left some very small scratches on the case. I removed it a few days later after having mysterious WiFi & Bluetooth issues and wondering if the case had anything to do with the connectivity problems. I was dreading the idea of having to wrestle it back on but it surprisingly popped right in. I wonder if it just needed to be stretched to the correct size? Also, I was looking forward to this pink case shining and sparkling, but with my orchid gray phone, it just looks like a cheap plastic pink $5 case. Having said this, it does seem like it will protect my phone.

    This is my first edge screen type phone so I was skeptical of case quality. Was looking for something with adequate protection that wouldn't be too bulky. This fits the bill perfect. It's a bit tricky to get on just right, (maybe just mine) one corner wanted to tuck in, so I had to use my fingernail to make sure it didn't get caught. Once it was on, no issues. I do find it a bit slippery, it's fallen out of my hand a couple times when picking it up. That being said, it does it's job great, and my phone/screen are no worse for the wear. My only big complaint is I chose clear since I really like the silver look of my phone. It does show wear and scratches on the case distracting from the smooth look. In hindsight I'm sure that's to be expected, I am just used to solid cases where the wear just kind of blends in. I usually wouldn't spend this much on a case, but with a good in store deal with my phone purchase. I have no regrets.

    Favorite Case for my S8

    Actually surprised at how much I enjoy this case, as I was never a big fan of Speck. My S8 badly needed a case at the time; I have bought the Otterbox Symmetry (my old case for my S7 - which was awesome) first, but was very disappointed. Bought an Insignia clear case (bc it was price friendly), which I now use as my backup. I was skeptical at first when I got the Speck, but it was cheaper than the Otterbox, and the feel and look was exactly what I was looking for (rubber grips on the side, hard case for overall protection, also indicated on box). It was hard to put on my case, but once I passed that stage, I was able to customize it, by using stickers I had. Feels great in the hand and not too slippery.

    Case did not fit

    I purchased this case before the galaxy s8 was released to make sure my device was protected right out the box. I didn't want to cheap out on an expensive phone so I bought a case from a well known brand for excellent protection, Speck. On the day I received my phone, I applied the screen protector from Zagg without an issue. However, when I went to apply to case, I noticed it required a little bit of force to get it in. Once I got the case on the phone, it sat awkwardly in the case. Confused, I looked at the box and unsurprisingly, it was designed exactly for my phone. I was very disappointed to find out that I would have to go the rest of day without the protection of a case.

    Slim case with good protection

    I tend to be careful and haven't dropped my phone too much, but a case is an essential piece to protect an investment of hundreds embodied in the phone. For my needs I didn't feel a bulky case with maximum protection was needed though. This case fits very tightly to the phone and has edges that strategically rise just above the level of the glass. Indeed it has survived a few small drops with no issue. Ports and buttons are easily accessible through the case. The material of the case is somewhat slick and not as grippy as I'd hope for, though that's the most significant bad point I can find.

    On my quest for a cover for my new Samsung S8 I knew I had to make a decision. Do I choose to protect my $800 investment or purchase an overpriced piece of plastic with flowers and brand names and sparkles. I was so excited to find a happy combination of both!!! A SPARKLY, PINK cover that provides amazing protection! I have dropped it about 5 times(because I drop stuff all the time) and every time I cringe just knowing that was the time it cracked. But alas, the screen is not cracked and as beautiful as the day I purchased it!! So thank you Speck, for making a cover that actually protects my phone and is super cute!!!

    I purchased this case with my phone and just a month or so after buying it the rubber around the screen was shredding. Called manufacturer and the agreed it shouldn't be doing that. After a painful return process they sent me another one. Guess what, this one did it also only this time it was worse and more spots! I threw it away rather than wasting my time and went and bought an Otterbox Symmetry. Speck has very poorly made products and I will never purchase their product again!

    I can't fault the case for the lack of selection at Best Buy. It was the closest to the color I wanted. I love the slim design and the sparkly! The slim design allows me to pocket my phone easily. I carry small purses and the phone not having added bulk is definitely a plus. I've dropped my phone several times and it's survived without damage. This is important to me because it's new and what I paid for it. The cost of the case is worth it as well. Great case, good price, great protection.

    Drop Proof

    As being notorious for dropping my phone, I have gone through 3 cases in the last year. I have heard of this brand through a friend and decided to try it out. Its slim, raised slightly above my screen , which means I can place it down or it can land face down w/o making contact with the screen. The only thing is that the texture of the case is very slippery, so maybe adding some grip or using a pop socket will fix that issue.

    My only complaint with this case is that it is not as pliable as I am used to my cases being. This makes it a little more difficult to get on and off but they said it should soften a little after it is worn in some. I personally love the clear one because I like to put a picture under it. This clear case allows me to see the picture very clear. And the big selling point for me on this case was that it's not supposed to turn yellow over time and has a lifetime warranty.

    Hard to get corners on

    This case is pretty stiff. Very pretty though. I gave it 3 stars because the darn thing is so hard to take off (I had to put my SD card in or else I probably would never taken it out of the case) and at least one of the corners gives me trouble when putting it on. I use a frequent shopper card to slide in between the phone and case to dig up the folded edge so it will pop over the phone corner.

    Been several months since using it on an samsung s8. Had the phone thrown for 10 ft, dropped severa times and the craziness of children. Not a single scratch nor crack on the screen. I was already expecting the phone to be dead when it was thrown over 10 ft on a concrete floor but to my amaze.. nothing happened to the phone. Buttons are easy to press compared to a well known brand. Yes i have two to compare and this is cheaper.

    Falls apart quickly

    The silicone parts of this case began falling apart after only a couple weeks of normal use. The case itself feels pretty sturdy, but it's very difficult to put on and take off in addition to the silicone peeling away from the plastic. This case gets the job done, but I'd rather pay a little extra for an otterbox or incipio.

    If you are looking for a sturdy but at the same time feminine this is the one it really shines and it is not scratch proof like it says but it is not easily scratched either it does have extra protection on the corners i like it because what is the point of having a fancy phone with an uggly case!!

    At first I fell in love with the color of this case. Been wanting it since the Samsung 8 was on pre order. I bought it however I just wished it was soft shell or rubbery. It's very tight on the phone that i sometimes feel it may break if you're the type to change cases a lot. If not then this case is perfect for those who change their case every 6 months or more. But it is a beautiful case and very protective.

    I purchased a new phone for my daughter and her old case didnt fit it anymore plus it was in dingy condition. We saw this pretty phone case and immediately knew it was the right look for her. My daughter lives in NYC and is very chic and fashionable. Phone case is holding up well after many drops!

    Protects phone well but after having to the need to remove it, the plastic edge didn't settle back into correct position when I put the phone back into it, now it looks like a little bubble is pushing outward on the edge where I pryed off the case from the phone. After many months it still has not laid back down into the correct position.

    Love the look of this case on my S8! It's very lightweight, but it provides a good level of protection as well. Dropped my phone on concrete last week and felt my heart drop. Picked up the phone, which had landed screen down, but there wasn't a scratch on the phone or the case. I wish BestBuy carried more cases in-store for those of us who don't have iPhones, but this was a great find.

    I love this case, but I have one small issue. It is EXTREMELY difficult to get it on your phone. I was scared I was going to break my phone trying to pull it on. In the long run, I guess that's good, because it makes it a tighter fit, but it took multiple tries to get it on, and the corner is still slightly crumpled because I couldn't pull it any tighter. Otherwise, great look and feel.

    Nice, snug clear case for my new Galaxy S8. Opted for clear to actually enjoy the color of the S8. Case fits great and the buttons work as if there was no case. Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is paying 30 bucks for a piece of well-formed plastic, but Best Buy is overpriced anyway on accessories, for the most part. Relative to the phone, though, I guess it's a small investment.
