We can’t say yet if the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are finally worthy of your hard-earned money but for such premium prices, we want the devices to be the best smartphone your money could ever buy. Fans of Samsung believe that the South Korean tech giant has learned from last year’s mistakes after the Note 7 debacle. The Galaxy S8 duo looks promising and we’re hoping the company’s new quality assurance tests and standard protocols finally made the battery good again. We’ll wait for April 21 once the units are out in the wild and used by regular consumers.

While waiting for your order, go ahead and shop around for phone cases. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are already durable enough but like any expensive gadgets, you still need to care for them. Even before the new Galaxy phones were officially “Unpacked“, we already got a glimpse of some phone cases on the UAG online store. Before the weekend ends, allow us to share with you a list of the protective phone cases for both the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
