Rhinoshield Galaxy S8 case
Without a doubt the Galaxy S8 is one of the most attractive phones on the market right now, so why cover up that beauty? If you want extra protection without sacrificing good looks, a bumper case like those offered from Rhinoshield could be the solution.
When it comes to falls, the reality is that most of the impact pressure falls onto the sides — and so a simple thin bumper case can really make a big difference. In addition, a bumper case adds extra gripability, which considering the slippery nature of glass could really come in handy. Even better news, Rhinoshield’s top and bottom bumper are elevated, meaning that the bezels not only protect the sides, but also are able to protect the front and back from taking on the full impact of a drop.
At $24.95, the Rhinoshield is far from the cheapest case found in this list, but could be perfect if you simply want a little extra protection and grip without adding any noticeable bulk.
