I rarely write reviews, but considering how many reviews I read about the previous S-View cases scratching the screen, and many saying the same about this newest one, I feel like I should address this a little.
I am the kind of person that looks and is able to find the smallest micro-scratches you can only see in certain lighting and at certain angles. BEING one of those people, I can honestly say, after having used this year's S-View case on the S8 for several months now that it does not cause any scratches whatsoever. The little plastic hard circle you see on the inside is less raised than the rubber inner lining around it. Maybe if you wear very very tight skinny jeans and it is super compressed it will scratch, but that is not the cases fault., it is your own. I can't believe how many people I know keep their phones in their back pockets(where they sit) or in pockets that are so tight it bends their phones.
Anyone complaining about dirt particles getting in between and scratching the screen I would also say it's their fault. Unless you bring this to the beach, or have filthy pockets, I can't understand how this is happening. Common sense says that if you do bring your phone somewhere where particles could get stuck in between, that one would be extra carful and check for said debris before they have a chance to cause scratching.
The only negative reviews I could understand about this case are its ability to protect in drops. I have never dropped it, but understand that it may not be the most protective case. I love the look, and without it wouldn't be rocking a case in the first place. It's minimalistic, and functional, and I love it!
