Best kickstand cases for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+


Samsung's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ feature two of the largest displays available on flagship phones in 2017, measuring 5.8 inches and 6.2 inches, respectively. This, of course, means that the S8 and S8+ are perfect for viewing media - and, quite often, users will want to watch content hands-free. To help in this regard, many protective cases feature kickstands, even if not all of them are marketed as kickstand cases.

If you're in need of a nice kickstand case for your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+, we've selected some of the models that - we think - are the best out there. You can find them all below, listed in alphabetical order.

The Maxboost Wallet Case is made out of PU (aka bicast) leather, and can be transformed into a slightly adjustable kickstand for hands-free viewing. In addition to that, you're getting four inner pockets for cards and cash. The Maxboost Wallet Case is the cheapest option on this list, and represents a great value, coming with lifetime warranty.

Samsung S-View Flip Cover with Kickstand

Thanks to its transparent front, the case lets you see the time, plus notifications with the cover closed, and you can even answer to calls or snooze alarms. As for the kickstand mode, this is adjustable, so you should easily find the right angle for your viewing pleasure.
