Best iPhone 8 Plus Cases iMore 2019

The iPhone 8 Plus deserves an ultra cool case to keep it safe. Whether you're looking for a very protective one or just something to prevent scratches, there are a number of options available. Not only does Apple makes its own line of cases for the iPhone 8 Plus, but many third-party accessory makers do as well. Here are our favorite cases.

Slim and rugged: Spigen Neo Hybrid

Staff Favorite

It offers excellent protection, has enough style to stand out from ordinary cases, and the seamless two-piece design is delightful to hold and gives you confidence every time you pick up your iPhone. The Neo Hybrid won't add too much bulk to your iPhone 8 Plus, and it will even allow it to charge wirelessly without you having to take off the case.

High-quality leather: Apple Leather case

We would, of course, be remiss if we didn't mention Apple's own cases for its products. Apple's Leather case comes in 10 different colors and is made out of specially tanned and finished European leather, so it will develop a natural patina over time. It also won't hinder your phone from charging wirelessly and promises to be super soft to the touch while still offering adequate protection.

Clear corner protection: Moko Clear case

Super affordable and completely clear, the Moko Clear case will let your iPhone 8 Plus show off its natural design. The case is pretty thin and won't interfere with wireless charging and it has the added bonus of having extra protection on each corner of your iPhone.

$7 at Amazon

Heavy-duty protection: i-Blason Transformer

Made of two layers, the case has an impact-resistant exterior and a shock-absorbing inner sleeve to ensure that your phone stays safe inside of it. In addition, the Transformer case has a built-in kickstand, so you can keep the phone propped up when you're not holding it. The hard case clips into a belt holster so that you don't have to worry about it fitting in your pocket while transporting it.

$17 at Amazon

Ulta-thin with no branding: Peel iPhone 8 Plus case

Designed without any crazy designs or visible logos, and measuring around 0.35mm thin with a subtle lip to protect your camera lens, the Peel's Super Thin iPhone 8 Plus Case is perfect for people who really don't like having a case on their iPhone.

$25 at Peel

Multi-functional wallet: Vena vCommute

Vena's vCommute is a fantastic wallet case simply because it's cool as hell. It's a little thicker than some cases, but it provides fairly rugged protection, and the magnetic back closure is convenient and functional — hiding your cards and doubling as a handy kickstand.

$25 at Amazon

Tons of extra battery: LCLEBM Battery Case

Never run out of battery when you're on the go again. With a huge 8,500mAh battery, the Yacikos Battery Case can keep your talking for an extra 17 hours before you need to find a wall outlet. Plus, the handy LED lights on the back on the case let you know when the case needs charging up!

$30 at Amazon

Thin and clear: Incipio Feather Pure

Slim, sleek, and clear the Incipio Feather Pure case is perfect for people who want the beauty of their iPhone 8 Plus shine through while still protecting that expensive back glass body.

$30 at Amazon

Stunningly beautiful: FLOVEME Luxury Slim Fit

Really, the biggest feature to this case is how damn pretty it is. Each version of this case is a color gradient, shifting from a strong color at the base to a more transparent color at the top. Of course, it's a super slim fit that adds practically no bulk to your phone, and the case is fingerprint resistant so it can always look beautiful in your hand.

$13 at Amazon

Grippy textured back: Caseology Parallax

The Parallax is a dual-layer case that features a TPU shell that cradles your iPhone 8 Plus, absorbing blows and leaving your hardware scratch-free. The second layer is a polycarbonate frame that fits around the edges of your phone, taking the brunt of the devastating smacks to the corners that have felled many an iPhone. Plus, the back of the TPU shell has a diamond pattern covered in a matte coating that offers extra grip!

Protection, style, and functionality

Buying a case for your iPhone 8 Plus gives you peace of mind knowing that you don't have to worry every time your iPhone takes a minor tumble or that the glass back won't get scratches if you rest it on your coffee table. Not to mention, if you ever wanted to save your iPhone to upgrade in a coup of years, keeping it clean and in mint condition will increase its resale value!

I have been using the Spigen Neo Hybrid on my iPhone 8 Plus since it launched and absolutely love it. It manages to offer fantastic protection while maintaining a relatively slim profile that doesn't mess the phone's ability to wireless charge.

Of course, a great wallet case like the Vena vCommute lets you leave your wallet at home and still carry around cash, cards, and your ID, making it a practical option for a night out of the town.
