    Great, but not perfect, case

    This wallet-style case adds a little heft to the slim Note 8, but that makes it easier to hold. I like the material from which the case back and cover are made; it’s comfortable in the hand and feels slightly “grippy.” The abstract pattern on the cover has grown on me; it makes it easier for me to grab my phone from among several others in black cases on a table. The cutouts are precise, and the closure snaps shut with a satisfying tactile “click” feel that is a great improvement over the Tech21 wallet case for the Galaxy S8+. I have had the phone (and case) for six weeks and the clasp has never failed me. I feel my phone is as well protected as I can make it in a case that is reasonably manageable to carry on a daily basis. I have dropped it once or twice, and it was fine. The front cover is removable, and the case apparently came with a strip that replaces the hinge of the cover, should you decide to use the back by itself (the Best Buy wireless rep put my phone in the case, so this piece is probably still in the box; since I bought this case for the cover, that’s where it will stay). Downsides: There’s no magnet to put the phone into sleep mode, so the screen will remain on, or turn on when put on a charger. The card slots seem pointless, as using them will add bulk and make it more difficult to close the case. It only comes in black, with a smoky gray back, so you can’t really see the Note 8 (which I was able to get in blue). I also haven’t found a glass screen protector that is compatible with the case; Tech21 makes a “ballistic” film one that I installed instead. Finally, unlike with some other cases, there is no way to fashion this one into any sort of a stand to watch videos or read in portrait mode; you’ll have to hold the phone or prop it against something. This may seem like a litany or negatives, but it’s really only enough to knock off one star. I feel my phone is protected, and I wanted a case with a cover. This fit the bill.

    Great Case except the clasp breaks easily

    I have owned many Evo Wallet Cases over the years for the Galaxy Note 5, Note 8, S7+, S9+. and others. I love the protection the case offers and has saved my phone on several occasions - worth the high price as compared to insurance. However - the cases for the Note 8 and S9 phones use a clasp to close the cover which easily breaks. The older models (for the Note 5 and S7 etc. used a magnetic strip along the length of the cover to hold it in place - it worked beautifully - I never had a problem. The new models (Note 8, S9) use a clasp which easily breaks over time. All three of my cases have had broken clasps. Tech21 customer service was great by replacing them (with pics and receipt), but the replacements take several weeks to arrive from overseas (understandably) and use the same flimsy clasp. When they break again they will no longer be under warranty and I will be without a fully functioning case. I generally speak highly of Tech21 products but advice staying away from versions of their products that use the clasp such as the current generation of the Evo Wallet.

    Great product and best wallet case for protection. It actually protects the top and bottom as most if not all wallet case leave the top and bottom exposed (naked). Also if it is dropped the phone will not pop out of the case is it sits in a full TPU case that has a flap that locks. I personally do not like the color and think that the company needs to have more colors besides this one. The case also need to be cheaper. $50+ for this TPU case is way too much but again it is the best for protecting the screen (soft inter flap that does not put your plastic card directly on the front of the screen), locking cover flap and full side protection. If it was at least cheaper I would have rated it one or two stars more but it needs more color selections.

    About 50% the perfect case

    This case is about 50% awesome... That being said what makes it not 100% is that 1. it does not turn the screen off when the flip case is closed like the Samsung cases do. 2. the latch on the side of the case which keeps the case closed is really annoying. If they got ride of the latch or figured out a different latch that was more convenient allowing quick access to the screen when people call that would have been smart. Other wise the case is really nice, it appears sturdy and protects the phone well while providing some additional storage for cards.

    Best Case for Note 8

    This is hands-down the best case for note 8. However, I have to dock one star because I owned the same case for the S6 edge - and frankly, that case was designed a little better in terms of functionality. With the old case, the latch was magnetic, so you could easily flip it open/shut single-handed. You could also flip the case back into a triangle shape, which made it function as a stand. This case removes those two features, but still provides the same level of protection.

    Sleek Triangular Patterned Phone Case

    This stylish case for the Samsung Note 8 has a stylish textured triangular pattern woven into it. It has two holes for the indicator light and speakerphone. It can hold two cards with a magnetic foam protector barrier between the screen which makes it convenient when downsizing and not wanting to carry a wallet or purse. The plastic clasp holds the case closed fairly well. My only recommendation would have been to etch out a place for the camera so when it's flipped around you can still take photos without have to hold it off to the side.

    I like it. It protects my screen when it sits in my purse. It has a clasp so it closes shut and will not open if moving around in my purse. It is a little annoying (that is the only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars) to open when I want to use it but I knew that when I bought it. So if your phone is going to be a place that the screen could easily get scratched when not in use, I would recommend this case. Luckily it has not happened but I was told that there is a special rubber lining it that protects it very well if dropped.

    I needed a case quickly and picked this one up from my local Best Buy store. Excellent tight fit to the phone and very sturdy. Really protects the phone. The cover with a flap to hold a card and an ID is a nice touch; the soft flap covers the phone screen so no chance to disrupt the screen. Didn't think I would like the plastic material but ended up really liking this case. The cover's snap closure takes some getting used to but not an issue. Need some color options!
