    Excellent Case

    I am quite new to the Smartphone game, having had a flip/slide phone for the past 8 years. When I got my phone from a Best Buy Mobile location, I asked the attendant at Best Buy for a good case, and was directed to this. He said that this is what he used. I am glad, as I love this case. I got the Marine Blue/ Twilight Blue for the Samsung Galaxy S8 phone. For a simple solid color, this looks nice and is recognizable. The case has rubber buttons on the side to work with the buttons. I have had no trouble out of them. The case is quite snug and does not interfere with the Galaxy's edgeless phone feature. This case does not have the clear faceguard, so a separate screen protector is needed to protect the face of an S8 phone. My favorite thing about the case is how nice of a grip it has. The rubber and grooves make pulling it out of my pocket really easy, and prevents any movement on slanted surfaces. It has been really hard to drop or fall because of the case. The case is very sturdy. While I have not truly tested what it can do to protect from impact, it will protect the phone from scratching and other issues. I am incredibly fond of this purchase and highly recommend it.

    Great slim, grippy case

    This is the fourth case that I got for my new S8 phone and I'm very happy. I liked my old Spigen on my S6 since it was slim and durable so I ordered two different Spigens and one was too bulky and one was too delicate. I tried another case from the store but exchanged it for this Speck. This case is protective and slim. I like that it's very easy to grip and that the lip on the top and bottom extends out far enough so that if I lay my phone face-down, the screen doesn't touch anything. The pattern on the back of the case is ribbed so I am able to find it easily in my purse if I have to fish around for it. Also, it works with my Zagg Incorporated - InvisibleShield screen protector. Very pleased with this case!

    Perhaps I'm a bit biased but I've always loved Speck cases. From their unique colors and styles to their premium protection. The Presidio Grip is no exception. I love the grip, which is definitely handy when attempting to text with one hand on my Samsung Galaxy S8. I also like the fact that it has a matte finish, as opposed to glossy finish, which made every single blemish much more noticeable. The matte finish camouflages any dings or scratch, if and when I drop my phone. And the rubber interior cushions the fall, so I know my phone will survive those darned concrete falls. What can I say? I'm a klutz, I sometimes forget I'm holding my phone and it just slips out of my hand. No more than a few feet drop. All is good.

    Peeling after one week

    I like the cover, my color choices were blue or black so I was disappointed in my options. I went with the cover that had a 10' fall rating wanting to protect my (expensive) phone investment. The cover fits super snug and I can not take off :( although that is probably a good thing I need to access my phone without the cover on and haven't been able to. Also, my most disappointing feature is the corners of the cover are starting to peel! there is an outer coating of rubber that is peeling back like a bad sunburn! I'd take a picture and post it with this review, but like I stated earlier I can't get the cover off the phone :( For $35 I wished I had more of a choice in phone covers.

    Nice Thin Design with Fabulous Slip Reduction

    This case offers a nice thin design with superior slip reduction features. Style is plainly appealing. Fitment is adequately snug and well contoured. The only small downside resides on the "gripageness" possiblly and likeky pulling paper currency out of a pocket that shares this case with bills. We're pleased with this design, and have tested it for about three years. Durable plastic and rubber. Designed well. After about a year the thin rubber grip splines do deteriorate slightly on the ends and wear down, but with very little compromise to the overall purpose. Purchased again, & will continue to do so, as long as nothing better is presented.

    I was getting ready to go on a 17 hour trip to Florida, so I had my 11 year girl pick me out a case for my new phone. She went with the one she wanted for her Iphone, and I'm glad she did. The Speck Case has a really good fit for the Samsung s8 phone. There are some nice grooves and almost a tire like substance that won't let your expensive phone slip out of your hand. I'm going from a Note 3 to a Samsung S8 so I really like how the phone is a little more one handed friendly, and fits into more of my pockets that I have. I'm really trusting this product to protect my phone, I haven't even put on a glass protector, I think its that good.

    The Speck Presidio Grip case is a fantastic case to use. It lost one star due to personal reasons, mainly that I have a couple of over-ear headphones and an auxiliary cable with a wider cover around the plug. This does not fit through to the jack, so I have to remove the case to use these. With this, it is better to completely remove the case, as the edge catches on the headphone and USB ports, and it has caused some minor cracking in the case. It is better to apply the case starting on the bottom of the phone and sliding around toward the top to avoid this. That being said, this is still a great case.

    Good case for S8

    I have been a long time user of Speck grip cases and i really like their new design. I have the same case for my iphone 7 plus and i must say it is a great case. The only reason why I wouldn't give it a 5 rating is the fact that the rubber grip on these new cases is coming off way too early. For the s8 version, the case is also a bit troublesome if you have a screen protector on. In my case i have the Zagg HD (plastic version) on which tends to come off from the top corners every few days becuase of this case. Other than That a really good case to the boot. Slim, sleek yet protective.

    Got this case to protect my new Galaxy S8. It provides a great deal of protection for the smart phone. It's been tested 3 times so far and has prevented any damage to the S8. I purchased a new phone car mount (held by pressure not magnetism) because of the following: The case is fairly thick so if you intend to place (glue) a metal plate inside the cover I would recommend you place it on the outside of the case. This is only if you are using a magnetic holder to hold the phone with the cover on. The iOttie Easy One Touch 2 is perfect... check it out on Amazon.

    Much Better than My Last Case

    I generally don't get cases at Best Buy, because there's just so many more cool and personalized options in the secondary market. But, the extra discount and points earned got me looking them over. What I love about this case, is the rubber nubbins on the edges and reverse. My last case was smooth all around. And let me say how annoyed I got any time I wanted to do the one-handed-photo/camera flip, and the thing wanted to slip out of my hand. Or when I tried to prop the phone up while eating or something. So, this case takes care of all of those issues. Love it.

    This is my first S8 so can't compare case to others but this one does the job nicely. The biggest issue with cases these days is the 'flexibility' of the buttons on the case. Often you have to push VERY hard on the side of the phone to get buttons to respond - not so on this one. Case (as expected) adds a little weight and width but well within reason and will fit in a shirt pocket with ease. I opted for the "no-slip" grip - so far so good, case feels natural in my hand and in fact have received a couple of compliments on the look and feel of the case.

    Love everything about this case! Fit is amazing...feels good in any size hand...mine is small...my husband has mitts...we both love this case! Love the slip resistant strips....put it on my center console...doesn't slide all over the place. Doesn't pop off the phone every time I grab it by the corner....fits great! And the color is pretty...yes that matters! Had this same case on my S7 and it took some abuse....purely accidental...but abuse. Not a scratch when they were removed....they look like new! Excellent product!!! Will buy again and again!!

    Very slim, small footprint

    Bought this for my new Galaxy S8 phone and I couldn't be happier. As you know the screen and frame of the S8 is stunning, very sexy and futuristic looking, but most of the time when you put a case around it it will take away from the "sexiness" of it and the phone doesn't look as half as cool as it did when the case wasn't on it. HOWEVER, this was one of the smallest, if not the smallest cases I could find that still lets the phone shine and look awesome, but while still protecting it from drops and things like that.

    I cannot say enough great things about Speck, they have great color choices for style and offer military grade protection for my phone without adding too much bulk, this case looks great on my blue S8, I love the grips and the new location of the Speck logo, overall I'm extremely happy with all my Speck cases, not too much bulk, multiple options for us Android users and the protection we want in a smartphone case, try them out in the store, they look great and you won't be sorry if you drop your phone!

    I looked at all the cases in the BB store and I decided to purchase this one. It had the smallest footprint while protecting the phone with the least amount of case or housing around it. The phone looks the best when there is no case on it, highlighting the awesome curved screen. But what is more important? The phone looking as nice as possible? Or having it protected at all times? I say protected, and that's the reason I bought this case because it protects it very well, while also keeping the phone as slim as possible.

    Solid, Grippy Case

    We've bought Speck cases for our last few rounds of phones and have always been satisfied; this case is well built and sturdy and doesn't add much thickness to the phone. The one thing to note is that the front bumper is thicker at the ends than the middle to give you better access to the Edge. This works fine in most cases but I've found that my phone sometimes rests on the screen when I set it face down, rather than on the bumper. It's not a big deal, but something to be aware of.

    My salesman recommended this case for it protective quality and the good grip it has. It's also fairly slim and doesn't block my Samsung Galaxy S8's screen at all. It's supposedly safe if your phone is dropped from up to 10 feet and has a lifetime warranty. My sales guy also did search (I think Amazon, Walmart, etc.) and matched the lowest price he found, which was a great deal. I like the way this case looks and feels and the price was VERY reasonable.

    Great Case for The Galaxy s8

    This is a great case for your Galaxy s8! I like the feel and hold of this case since it isn't that bulky unlike other cases. The edges of the cases are tough, hardened protecting me against front facing drops. Ever since I dropped my phone for the first time it didn't damage the phone and the screen but it has a minor dent on the top right corner of the case. Overall this case is a stylish good design and excellent protection against drops for a cheaper price.

    Curves

    So far the phone has been great, as far as speed and functionality. My one major complaint is actually the curve. After having it for a while i realized i really don't like the curved screen. I find it to be very annoying, for two reasons. First the screen protector keeps wanting to peel on the edges, and second laying it face down doesn't work all that well. This may very well be my last Samsung if there next phone is a curved screen as well.

    I hate bulky phone cases or cases that over promise and under deliver. This case is perfect! With an added glass / screen protector your smartphone will be in good hands. The Speck case is sleek but has a snug fit and offers great impact protection for your Samsung S8. The added rubber grip doesn't offer too much resistance when sliding the phone in a front or back pocket, but is perfect in the hand. I highly recommend this great case.
