    I got my case! It's a beautiful thing, too!

    I used the Darling Bride's Galaxy S8+ as a reference, to provide a sense of scale. The Note 8 will be about 2mm taller and 2mm wider than the S8+... because the top and bottom bezels have been shrunk so much, though, Samsung was able to squeeze a much bigger screen into almost the same size phone.

    That said, the Note 8 is significantly larger than the Note 5: in fact, this case will not fit into my belt holster, which was actually designed for the Galaxy Mega! The Note 8 is about the same width as the Note 5, but about 1/3' (8.5mm) taller. So I'll need a new holster as soon as I find one.

    But I don't know if anyone out there is looking forward to the Unpacked event tomorrow morning as much as I am... if you are, just please give me a tiny head start when pre-orders open!

    :D

    OOOOOH I didn't see that Alcantara cover! That's nice! I would just be a bit concerned about drop protection, but apparently the corners are reinforced. Fifty bucks, though... WOW. I've never had anything against the Samsung accessories page EXCEPT for the prices.

    EDIT:

    Quit costing me money, Samsung! I had to pounce on that Alcantara case. Nothing smacks of luxury like Alcantara lovingly wrapped around a Note 8...

    :D

    I designed my own on case-custom but I also really like the Alcantara pink one. Might get that one too. My new baby will be moving in style!

    I have found some best cases on indabaa website and they all are compatible with note 8. They have curated some amazing list for kickstand cases, wallet cases and clear cases.

    I had the Samsung Protective case on my Note 4 for over 2 and a half years, had a few drops in that time and I can't see any marks on the case, never mind the phone!
    So I'm going with the Note 8 protective case from Samsung, price is a bit steep right now though and not yet released so I won't be able to take it out with me and turn it upside down on a cafe table pretending I have the phone in it (wink wink)

    Protective Standing Cover IS THAT THE CASE

    I LOOKED AT IT, DOES IT ADD SOME BULK TO DEVICE, AND A SLIM FIT. SILICONE HAS THE BEST GRIP

    My Otterbox Defender has kept my Note 2 safe for 6 years (I know!), so given the price of the Note 8 I'll probably stick with that.

    very expensive. i get tired of style versus protection. since note 8 isnt so sexy as my s8 plus an otter seems fitting.

    Coming from a galaxy note 4, i was used to having the UAG composite case for it. great heavy duty case, so i figured i would stay with UAG this go around. however they haven't made a similar case just yet, and their heavy duty case is going for $60 bucks... i might try purchasing their plasma series case. however there is no release date for the citron color... not sure how much more i can wait lol

    I've been a fan of the Seidio Dilex cases with my last 2 phone models and will likely go with it again for the N8. Love the kickstand though the funky corners on the N8 model look...well...funky but if it protects my almost $1K pocket computer than I can live with it. Can't order it yet as their website still says "Coming Soon". Looks like they will have their holsters discounted for the Dilex & Surface cases.
