    I'm going to disagree with you. Spigen, just one example, has a few brand new cases for the 8 Plus. When I open a browser window in my left monitor of 7 Plus cases, and another browser window on my second monitor with 8 Plus cases... I see a few new cases. Some have the same name but are tagged with "2" plus have additional kickstands added that weren't on the cases for the 7 Plus. There's some that look identical, but have very subtle differences if you look closely.

    All of the stores that I've walked into have 7 and 7 Plus cases on clearance, meaning new stock of brand new cases machined for the 8's are coming in.
    Ok, every one I see for the 8-Plus show it's also for the 7-Plus >> Spigen Neo Hybrid Crystal [2nd Generation] iPhone 8 Plus Case / iPhone 7 Plus Case with Clear Casing and Hard Bumper Frame for Apple << sample.. but heck, I am happy to be wrong and hopefully they're different.

    Of course they’ll fit, since the phones are almost identical in size.

    You stated none of the case companies are manufacturing new cases for the 8/Plus and that’s the part I disagree with. Unless you have some insider knowledge the rest of us aren’t privy to?

    I'm using a 7 Plus case on my 8 Plus phone. The night I bought my 8 I stopped at Target and bought a cheapie case (Speck) to hold me over until I can get a really good case. It fits snug, but it does fit.
    How is Speck a "cheapie" case? What's your definition of a "good" case?

    No they don't. You said perfectly and I assure you this is impossible due to the fact the newer phone has larger dimensions than the ones it was designed for. Fits <> fits perfectly. None of the cases I've tried don't actually fit. None of them fit perfectly either. A few are actually unusable due to buttons not working or popping off with the slightest force on corner...
    No, actually, all the cases I have fit PERFECTLY. I know what the words means.

    I wish mine did. None of mine fit perfectly.

    The case I purchased was on clearance, and the case just makes the phone look pretty. My personal definition of a good case, what matters to me, first and foremost I want protection and if it looks good then all the more reason for me to consider it a good case.

    Keep in mind though, everyone has their own definition of what a good case would be for them. For my needs, Speck isn't that brand.

    While awaiting my 8 Plus case I wanted to use my old 7 Plus Apple Leather Saddle Brown. Has anyone encountered any issues while using their 7 Plus leather on their new 8 Plus?

    i wouldn't call it an issue, but the ring/silent switch is a little harder to reach. In the photo attached is my gold 8 plus vs my black 7 plus in a apple leather case for 7 plus.

    Ok so my Otterbox defender series does fit but not perfectly the screen protecter part is not touching the screen 100% which can cause certain areas of the screen to less sensitive to touch. Some areas you have to press down harder then some , it gets annoying fast!

    It’s hard to turn mute switch from on to off. Otherwise it’s fits ok. Just a little tight.

    It seems the new color leather cases are actually cut for the 8 plus. I got the purple one (can’t recall the actual name) and it centers the mute switch perfectly.

    I just got a leather case from Sena and it fits perfectly. Plenty of room to adjust the ring/silent switch.
