I always like minimal cases for my phones so that they don’t interfere with the looks of the phone. The glass back on the S8 Plus is slippery and I already dropped it once even before the case has arrived from Amazon. It was a pretty simple choice with which Spigen case to get as this is the thinnest one I can find for my phone from Spigen. I also like to put my phone face down and I wanted the case to allow me to do so without the screen touching the surface when face down. I’ve had this case on my phone for few days now and it has its pros and cons. I ordered a maple gold color for my black phone as I loved the contrast color theme. S8 Plus and S8 are both fingerprint magnets and the glass back tend to show smudges if your hands are oily. Not an issue though with this case as it has a matte coating. Also, the Spigen Thinfit is easy to take off and put back on as it has small cutouts on the corners that allow the case to flex foe easy removal and insertion. Another key reason to consider this case is because it is QNMP (Abbreviation for Quantum Neodymium Magnetic Plate) compatible and would work with any magnetic car mount. It has a raised bezel around the camera on the back which is not so obvious until you lay it flat on a table.
I don’t expect this case to protect my phone from a long fall or even one where it might fall when getting out of the car or taking it out of the pocket. On a hard drop, I don’t think it would do anything to prevent the screen from shattering, but it should keep the phone safe from day to day scratches and make it comfortable to hold. Overall a decent case, but the protection levels may not be adequate when compared to some full bumper cases.
