Here are the best LG G8 cases
While the design of the LG G8 ThinQ is similar to the older LG G7, lots of things are new inside. These include a faster processor, an OLED display, and newer security measures like Hand ID, which lets you unlock your phone via the hand’s unique pattern of blood veins. Naturally, you would want to protect this expensive phone in case it is victim to a fall or spill. Buying a case for the LG G8 is a smart investment, so let’s look at the best LG G8 cases available at the moment.
The best LG G8 cases:
Editor’s note: We will be updating this post with additional LG G8 cases as they become available.
Speck is an industry favorite among case users. The company makes products with very cool designs, a relatively thin profile, and excellent protection. The Speck Presidio doesn’t just protect against drops, but it also prevents them by adding rubber grips throughout the case. These are tested for 10-foot drops and come with a raised bezel for screen protection.
Spigen Rugged Armor
The Spigen Rugged Armor LG G8 case still offers excellent protection for the phone, but with a slimmer case design compared to the Tough Armor case. It’s made of a more flexible TPU material that includes a spider-web pattern inside and a matte finish with carbon fiber accents on the outside. However, it still uses the company’s Air Cushion Technology for shock absorption in case of falls.
We like recommending thin, transparent cases for those who want to enjoy their phones’ true look and feel. The Ringke Fusion may not be as thin as an ultra thin case, but it finds a good balance between a slim body and a protective cover. This dual-layer case can hold up much better than those ultra-slim cases that look more like skins. Meanwhile, its transparent body will ensure everyone can see the phone’s gorgeous design.
OtterBox is famous for its tough cases. The Defender series is the toughest of the bunch, but those cases can be very bulky. If you want serious protection without sacrificing design (too much), the Otterbox Symmetry line finds a great balance. It’s much more pocket-friendly, but it can still hold up against most drops and bumps. It comes with a dual-material design, consisting of rubber and plastic. This helps with shock absorption and overall protection.
The Poetic Revolution offers all-around protection designed for military-grade drop testing. It combines a tough polycarbonate body and a shock-absorbing TPU bumper to protect against most drops and dust. The Poetic Revolution also includes a built-in screen protector, so your phone is covered from any angle. The back of the case also doubles as a handy kickstand. You can choose between black, blue, and pink finishes.
Supcase UB Pro
The Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro rivals only the Otterbox in terms of durability. With a multi-piece hybrid design, it can survive heavy-duty drops, and the screen protector protects the display from harm. Of course, the larger design provides protection, but it also makes the case tough to fit into a pocket. Supcase includes a rotating belt holster with each case to help you save that precious space. The back of the UB Pro doubles as a handy folding kickstand too.
Spigen Tough Armor
The Spigen Tough Armor case lives up to its name, offering optimum protection, thanks to its dual-layer construction and air cushion technology. It also manages to keep the body relatively slim for the level of protection it offers. But it does much more than keep your phone safe. The case comes with an integrated kickstand, a feature we know many of you still miss and is becoming rarer.
Shields Up Wallet Case
Your case can protect a phone and replace your wallet. These wallet cases are convenient, and the Shields Up Wallet Case is a great deal. It comes with three card slots and a bill pocket. Its design also doubles as a stand. And if you’re into unique designs, this one also comes in a couple of very special variants: Marble or Flower.
