    Does not scratch screen!

    Posted
    Trinx

    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!

    The S-View Flip Covers are my favorite phone cover - I had a whole "wardrobe" of them for my previous phone. They proved to protect my phone very well - I dropped it often enough to prove that. I very much enjoy the Samsung S-View Flip Cover for my new Samsung S8 phone and am pleased that it's the same color as my phone. I also like that the cover is actually translucent - though it looks opaque - so it's possible to see caller ID, etc., without opening the cover. When I walked into my local Verizon store some of the reps were excited to see it and thought it was a nice cover. My only con for this cover is that - by necessity - the side is "loose" so that the cover will open & close without causing undue wear & tear, which makes holding it a little awkward when talking on the phone due to it moves around a lot.. Perhaps it could be held in place with a magnetic closure when open. Just a thought.

    Perfect companion for the Coral Blue S8

    This is an awesome case! It is the perfect match for the Best Buy exclusive Samsung Galaxy S8 in Coral Blue! This case was very well designed. The phone's display screen is visible through the cover so you can keep the protective element in place when simply checking the time. Side buttons are still accessible when the case is closed. When you open the cover, the phone instantly wakes up to your lock screen. The phone case makes a fantastic stand for your phone. As someone whom is known to be a bit of a klutz, I worry about its durability and drop protection. There is a bit of padding in the middle of the case but no rubber or any other shock absorber other than the case's plastic material on the sides. The durability and drop protection is the reason why I had to give this case a 4 star rating. However, if I were rating for looks alone, it'd be a perfect 5 stars!

    I purchased this case as an option to/replacement for my Speck Presidio Grip. As advertised, the case displays the Time and Notifications which you can respond to by opening the cover. This case has a number of benefits: 1) the front and backsides of the case are smooth which makes it easy to slide the S8 into a pocket, 2) the screen cover is firm enough to protect the display, 3) the inside of the screen cover has a soft non-abrasive texture which gave me the confidence to remove my screen protector accessory (film), and 5) the case securely holds the S8 while also allowing for its easy removal. As mentioned, the S8 can easily be removed and protects the phone well enough to forgo screen protector add-ons. Both are benefits if you have a Samsung VR headset or opt to fast-charge your phone without a case.

    Horrible Support from Samsung

    Posted
    JonB

    The case, while nice, had front cover separation. Samsung warranties this product for one year. Samsung has had the defective cover back at their replacement center since September 26, 2017. To date (October 29, 2017), no replacement has been sent. Calls to Samsung state they "have no record of receiving the proof of purchase", in spite of a fax confirmation and three separate email confirmations they have received the proof of purchase. Samsung does not honor their agreements.

    As far as flip covers, this is probably the best

    There's a cover I bought from a company that sounds like Zamazhon (lol). It actually was nice. But i thought I'd try the official Samsung version because I got it at a VERY reasonable price. This is the S-View not the LED version. I think it is very slick. The outside front is nice and glossy but transparent. Not sure where the magnet or maybe magnitized material is but the phone senses open/close. It adds a little more thickness because of the kickback stand. Which brings me that. I love that part of it. It works well. So if you can get it for around 30 bucks then it's worth it. BB will price match it.

    How does that screen work

    I think this is one of the best techie case for my Samsung galaxy s8. The phone fits very well I. The case and the cover will display the date/time, and notifications. You can also answer an incoming call and control your music from the cover screen. The only drawbacks are that the case doesn't have a clip, the cover will open if it isn't lying on it's back, and when you use it like a stand it doesn't lock and the edge that supports the screen in this option is very small. Besides that I love it

    A perfect cover for the Galaxy S8. I wasted a lot of my time searching for the curved glass protector for my phone but all in vain. They all just stick from the sides and leave an air gap in the middle of the screen. This cover, unlike others, has a matte/rubber finish on the inside of the glass so it won't scratch your screen. You won't need a protector if you have this. Just be sure not to drop your phone or scratch the screen while the cover is open. Great for use without a glass protector.
