For the price I could have done better
Overall it's a really good case with carbon fibre touches and good solid feel knowing your phone will be protected by any damages caused.
I would most certainly recommend this case.
If you have fat fingers you might a while to get used to the s pen removal. My fingers aint too fat but I need to use a finger nail to both secure a remove pen. It works. It doesnt add too much bulk to the phone. I ordered the case before my phone arrived, had I realized the Note 8 was slim I might have got something more chunky.
Screen protector - maybe I'm just too rough with the phone but this soon looked a bit frayed on the edges, maybe it was fitted a bit wrong, I am not sure. It worked like the original screen and no difference could be felt using it. I gave mobile fun a run down on how the screen protector went, they are sending me a new one, free of charge, which I promise I will be more careful with.
The cut outs are perfect and line up very well. My only concern for the back of the case is, as with any larger phone case, not all headphones/jack cables will fit. I have a DeepBass cable in my car and it won't plug in without removing the case.
There are two grippy parts at the top and bottom of the back of the case, these are a godsend and make viewing videos and content feel safe and secure whilst out and about.
The glass screen protector, whilst appears to be very well made, the design of it has left me no choice but to return the case. I appreciate the difficulty in designing a case that provides coverage down the curved edges of the Note 8. I've tried a couple of cases on the Note 8 now, and I can confirm "there is no halo effect" as with the others.
My main gripes are that, at the point at which the screen curves, you can clearly see long vertical lines going from top to bottom, along with a blurred image from this line down the curve.
Also, the mimicked black glass of the Note 8 towards the top and bottom do not match the angle of the Note 8 and when viewed from the side profile, you can clearly see they do not match up and you lose roughly 0.5-1mm of screen estate towards the top and bottom.
Furthermore, at the very corners of the protector, the screen becomes unresponsive, leaving you unable to press the back button on Facebook (the very top left), and the very bottom right when you are typing, sometimes the delete key is tough to press too, it becomes rather frustrating as a heavy phone user.
The S-Pen does not feel as good to use anymore, the gestures and side swipes from the edges is hindered by the fact the case does not extend the full length of the curve, and thus your finger/S-Pen hits the raised glass and makes using these features rather frustrating.
I followed all of the instructional videos online, and made sure 100% that this protector was fitted as accurately as possible. There were ZERO bubbles as advertised which was nice. But as a technology nerd that has been in the industry for 15 years repairing mobiles/computers, I cannot recommend the screen protector, and if you are buying this case purely for almost 360 degree protection, you may be disappointed. If you like the design of the back and want it just for that, it is definitely not worth £30 but I can confirm, it is a very sturdy, well made back cover and I have no issues recommending that product on its own. If they provided this back case without the glass protector, I'd imagine it would be worth in the region of £15, and I would highly recommend it.
4 star because of the screen protector. I'm willing to pay a little bit more and get a better tampered glass.
