Took plunge and ordered s8. Question is what have you folks got protecting it. What kind of case and or screen protectors would you recommend. Tia.

​Don't think that will fit.
The only screen protector that will properly work with it is an invisible shield style (rubbery) one - I wouldn't even bother trying the 'curved glass' ones as every single one I've tried has been complete junk.

The one I tried was by Arbalast. Ignore the negative reviews as these screen protectors are very difficult to apply and have bubbles for a week or so, but once they have set they offer full coverage. I had the S8 for a week and the S8 Plus for another week but I sent them both back. I would offer to give you the cases but I might end up getting another down the line. I didn't get on with either - particularly the Plus model, but you never know - things might change in future
I have one of these for my S7

And then these protectors

I've got the Samsung Screen protector.

If you order before 7pm it comes next day.

Also my case amazon.co.uk/Sam…1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1495530548&sr=8-7&keywords=S8+clear+cover

It's really thin so don't lose the look of the phone, can be really slippy though.

Yes, unless you want either no full coverage or one that lifts horribly at the edges and ruins the touch responsiveness and gets dust under it. Not saying the ones I bought are the only ones, just that the rubbery type are the only ones I believe actually work properly.

The Samsung one is also an Invisibleshield style film (PET) as I described. I guess it says a lot that Samsung themselves aren't making curved glass ones. I went through many glass ones on my S7 Edge and they were always diabolical.
Thanks for help. I've ordered official Samsung protector. Just looking at cases now.

Are you any good at putting screen protectors on? This one covers the curve so best to be precise!

Screen Knight and all the others are much of a muchness as they use exactly the same material, so it's wise to buy a few if you aren't very good at putting screen protectors on. I tend to use a book hinge method.

It's also key to not try and 'fix' bubbles by lifting the screen protector - even the largest bubbles will eventually disappear - a massive one could take up to two weeks. The most important thing is that it is aligned properly.
