    This is a great thread for discovering new cases! I tend to prefer cases with lots of protection and some bulk to them. For my 8 Plus I went with an Otterbox Defender. I also like the Speck Presidio Grip which is much lighter but still offers good drop protection.

    I just picked up this Speck glitter case in gold today at Marshall’s for $14.99, it’s for the 7 plus though, but I’d rather pay $14.99 than $49.99 for last years iPhone model!https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...355af78146.png
    Are these easy to put on?

    I’m a pro with putting cases on and off, but this one would give some people a little of a struggle, but great protection and looks so beautiful ❤️

    That's the first one I bought on the night I got my 8 Plus. It was a Speck for the 6 Plus/7 Plus, and I figured I'd use it temporarily until I could get a Spigen case. For me personally, I could not remove the case once it was put on. My husband had to remove it by prying the sides of the case up, while I sat there cringing and stressing that my new 8 Plus would crack. I definitely do not recommend a Speck case designed for the 6 Plus/7 Plus to use on an 8 Plus. The 8 Plus is just a tad taller than the previous Plus models, so those cases are going to be tight. Dummy me learned this after wasting cash on two different cases.

    That's why I avoid Speck Cases. I tried one, and it was really difficult to put on. So I avoid them, even though they look great!

    The candyshells are difficult but it’s seems that the presideo cases and grips cases are much easier IMO.

    Last one I had was difficult as well (for my 6s, which lead me to ultimately start using the Apple cases). I do like them but wow they can be tough to put on and remove.

    After seeing several mentions of Sonix cases I had to check them out. The silicone Apple cases are my favorite and I have 2 of them for my 6S Plus.
    The Sonix cases looked fabulous though and got great reviews so I ordered one that said it was for the 7 and 8 Plus.
    Of course I don’t have an 8 Plus yet ( waiting to see if Verizon has one of those great sales around Thanksgiving like they did last year with the 7) but I’ve received the case and it works with my 6S Plus too for now.
    I really like it. It has a raised lip that will protect your screen but it is not bulky. It’s clear with a floral pattern and will look good with which ever color - gold or space gray - I decide to go with.
    However it does not have the great feel and grip of the Apple cases.
    Still love it though. ( Will probably get a new Apple case also when the time comes. )

    Does anyone have any input about the Spigen phone rings?
    I am thinking about getting one of the Rose Gold ones for my wife as a Xmas gift.
    She uses an Otterbox Symmetry case on her phone. So i am wondering if it would stick to that.
    Also, how do these rings work with wireless charging?

    You couldn’t lay the phone on the charger (flat or easel) with the ring on the back. It would hold the phone too far away from the charger. At least if you’re talking about the rings you stick on the back of a case to help hold the phone?

    Yeah those are the ones I am talking about. Thanks. I probably won’t end up getting it for her then. She would hate to get rid of the wireless charger now.

    I have a TYLT and a Spigen easel style wireless charger. I’ve had them for a while - used them with Android phones in the past. Both are great and work very well. I’m assuming they will work well with the new iPhones too - plan to use them with the 8 Plus when I get it.
    Nice thing about the easel style is it isn’t as easy to dislodge the phone from the “sweet spot” and have it quit charging.

    (Warning: venting about to commence): I think I'm going to make myself go certifiably insane just in trying to decide on a case. I'm going to get the gold 8+ in december. I'm trying to decide on a case that will show off the awesome looks of the phone, but protect it at the same time. The case I have for my 6s is no longer made. I want a clear case that doesn't yellow, that is easy to take on and off, and that offers awesome protection for the phone! Is that too much to ask for? LOL!

    I went to Best Buy last night to see some cases in person. Of course, inventory was down because their black friday promotion kicked off yesterday. I did snap some pictures and have been researching them. I'm not impressed and pretty much back to square one. SIGH! So I will continue reading and researching and hanging out here in hopes of discovering the perfect solution to my quest!

    The clear TPU does tend to yellow. I had one I loved that turned blue from the pockets of my jeans. If you get the hard/crystal ones that are not TPU they just scratch.

    Now I go with non-clear and save myself the aggravation.

    I just bought this Spigen glitter case for my X and I absolutely love it. It’s very protective, similar to Speck glitter candy shell and very easy to take on and off and buttons are so easy to click! I highly recommend this case.

    Here’s the link for the 8 Plus..

    And here is a pic of my X in this case. Is so gorgeous

    I bought the Otterbox Symmetry case. I have used one on my 6s, 7+ and now 8+. Fits great and not hard to put on.

    HINT: For those that have problems putting on Otterbox full cases with plastic protector there is a video on You-Tube showing how to easily install and un-install these cases. After 30 minutes of stressful exercise and many cuss words, my wife found the video and we fastly solved the problem.

    This is the link for the 7+, same as the 8+.



    This is for the iPad; how to un-install this type of case.

    I’ve always liked these Walnutt cases — I had several different colors for my iPhone 6s, and then purchased several more once I upgraded to the 8+. They can be found here on eBay (they ship from Hong Kong, but are really inexpensive and arrive in a very timely fashion):

    I got both an iPhone and iPad this week. I got cases for both and glass screen protectors for both. I ended up taking off the iPhone screen protector- the uneven nature of it was driving my ocd nuts lol
