When the case came in the mail, I was in awe. For 1 the color is amazing. The perfect combination of colors. The case is nice and hard but yet not too hard. The light blue marks on the side are perfect for gripping the phone.
Only thing is if you do have a screen protector on your S8+ make sure its aligned properly, if not it will start to peel off. I had to redo my screen because the case was taking it off. And another thing, the case comes up a little bit around the edges to protect them in the event that you do drop your phone.
All in all the case is not only beautiful it also protects your phone.
