    Looks good, lacks function

    This phone case visually works like I had hoped for. Unfortunately, this case is not functional and even removes functionality from the phone itself which I truly hope is just an early release glitch. I have the S8+ case. When you close it, it defaults to the original clock layout and gives basic information like the music playing etc. This is what I was hoping for. Where it falls short is everything that comes after. It loads Samsung themes which implies you can use a cool theme to adjust the display when the cover closes. It doesn't. Currently the case is not compatible with always on display (AOD). This makes absolutely no sense. This means that when you close the case, within 10 seconds, the screen goes black and you either have to open the case or hit the power button to see the time etc (which defeats the purpose of the clear case. The volume buttons on the outside of the case serve little to no purpose because when you close the case the volume can't be adjusted. No matter what theme you choose, once the case is closed it reverts to the horrific basic clock display (for a whole 5 seconds. The "kickstand" is essentially an ipad cover folding technique that is only practical if you find yourself watching movies on your phone. I believe the case interacts with the phone with a microchip (round circle) on the front telling it to lock etc. I'm hopeful this means that there is a possibility that in the future a patch could allow the case to use AOD which will make it perfect. Until then, it's just a case that removes function for an expensive price tag.

    The case looks really good, and the materials look premium. Back soft-touch material feels good in the hand when you hold it. Front plastic is not very scratch resistant but holds up to daily abuse (in my pocket or in my bag pocket with coins, pens, keys etc.) pretty well. There's a silicone lining in the front plastic that touches your phone screen which makes it secure and not feel flimsy when it's closed, also this protects your screen from scratches from repeatedly opening and closing the cover. Notifications function pretty well when the flap is closed and the AOD is visible without being too bright especially when it's propped up to a wireless charging stand facing you in bed. Wireless charging works really well with this case on, you just have to position it properly at the very center. (I use an OEM wireless fast-charger from samsung) Overall good product. -1 star for possible improvement, maybe use gorilla glass or a more scratch-resistant material in front.

    Good Cover/Can't Use the Phone while Closed

    I bought this cover at the recommendation of my Best Buy sales rep, who was excellent. I usually buy covers online because I like the selection better but the rep described the benefits of this one, plus I liked the color. It took me a while to figure out how to get my AOD to work with it, but it does. Two reasons for 4 stars instead of 5: first, I only have one option for the AOD display and I hate the clock. I always read it as a date first for some reason. Second, and much bigger, is that even though I can answer the phone with the cover closed, when I speak, the other person can't hear me. Being able to talk on the phone without opening the cover would be a major benefit if it worked, but it doesn't. However, if this isn't a critical issue for you, I would still recommend the case. It saves you from having to by a screen protector without sacrificing AOD and it looks sharp.

    This case is perfect for the phone. I have tried to protect the screen but due to the curves, the protectors just poo right off or don't fit properly. This case opens like a book and when closed it protects the screen which helps a lot. Also I was constantly dialing numbers and going to websites and other stuff accidentally as the phone is sensitive and I would end up calling people or opening videos and the such just from putting my phone away. This case does not allow for those accidents as it has to be open for you to touch the screen. Also it has a clear view window so you can still see your screen. I'm very happy with the purchase.

    Samsung Case

    After 1 week of having this case, my phone cracked. I used a cheap Amazon case before and did not have an issue with breaking my phone when I dropped it. 1 week of having this case, I break it. I wish that the cover was magnetic or somehow stay on the phone better. The cover is a pain when you are trying to keep your phone open. For example, I use a magnetic phone holder in my car. When I use the GPS, the cover whats to close. If I fold the cover behind the phone, then my phone does not stay on the holder. But this case looks great and having the time and notifications on the cover is cool.

    The BEST Cellphone Cover for the GALAXY S8+

    After purchasing the new GALAXY S8 Plus, I searched the Internet for a new Case/Cover and purchased one from a 3rd party retailer. It was a good case/cove but almost as heavy as the S8, so I went to Best Buy and purchased this one and I am very happy I did. I had purchased this same one when I had the GALAXY S7 Edge, and I'll buy it again when I get the next GALAXY phone. I love it, and I recommend it http://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung-s-view-flip-cover-case-for-galaxy-s8-black/5809407.p?skuId=5809407

    Some pros and cons to this, but it was free with the phone purchase. Nice general protection... probably best for a purse or inside pocket user. I'm not so sure it will take a real corner or edge impact. So far, i was able to put a zags tempered glass screen protector on the s8+ and it is staying on. Its kinda awkward to deal with the fold back cover to take pics. The phone buttons you can push through the case cover, but you need to look at the case to see what you are pushing. Also nothing keeps the cover closed real well on the phone (like a magnet or clasp).

    Very good option to protect your GS8+

    Accustomed to the flip covers of the S5, S6 and S7 models, I doubted (and much) if I should buy it, since it did not have a transparent window like the previous versions. However, I found in this model a very good option and I am glad with the purchase. Pros: have the possibility to use the kickstand to be able to use a mouse or keyboard (obviously on bluetooth connection with S8+). Cons: The main cover will ruin and scratch very quickly, even if you are too carefull. Samsung should improve that material.
