Best kickstand cases for Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Once it launches in the coming weeks, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will become one of the world's best smartphones for viewing media on the go, thanks to its big, bright and vivid 6.3-inch display. That being said, buying a kickstand case for the Galaxy Note 8 is certainly a good idea, as this will let you watch your favorite videos, movies, TV shows and so on, hands-free.

Various Galaxy Note 8 protective cases that feature kickstands are already available to buy, even though the phone itself isn't out yet. If you are thinking about getting a kickstand case for your incoming Note 8, our list below could help you choose the right one. The cases are presented in alphabetical order.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 S-View Flip Cover

While the highlight feature of the Galaxy Note 8 S-View Flip Cover is its transparent front (which lets you interact with some of the phone's functions - including calls - when the case is closed), the accessory also features a neat kickstand mode for convenient media consumption. Being made by Samsung, the S-View Flip Cover nicely fits the Galaxy Note 8's curves, and comes with 1-year warranty.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Rugged Protective Cover

Here's another case made and sold by Samsung - this time a rugged one. Samsung says the Rugged Protective Cover is tested to military standards (U.S MIL-STD-810G METHOD 516.6) and can deflect and absorb most impacts in case you're dropping your Galaxy Note 8. The case's kickstand is smartly integrated into the rear cover, so you'll only notice it if you need to use it.

Spigen Tough Armor Case

Spigen is well-known for manufacturing reliable cases for many flagship phones, and the Tough Armor Case for Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 is no exception. The case includes a small but tough, reinforced kickstand, and should be able to withstand drops from up to 3.8 feet (1.1 meters). The Tough Armor Case for Galaxy Note 8 is available in five color variants: black, maple gold, orchid gray, deep sea blue, and gunmetal. Each case comes with 2-year warranty.

VRS Design Daily Diary Wallet Case

If you like wallet cases, the VRS Design Daily Diary might be just what your Galaxy Note 8 needs, especially considering the fact that it's not too expensive. Made out of premium PU leather, this elegant case features a magnetic latch, a pocket for cash, and three other pockets for your cards. Oh, and of course there's also a kickstand mode. You can get the Daily Diary case in either black, or brown (1-year warranty included).

Zizo Bolt Series Case

The ultra-rugged (and ultra-bulky) Zizo Bolt Series case can make sure that your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 survives drops from up to 12 feet (3.6 meters). Thus, this is by far the toughest case here. Priced at just $17.99, this is also the cheapest option on our list. In addition to a sturdy kickstand, the Zizo Bolt case comes with a free curved screen protector, holster clip, and belt clip. Furthermore, the case is available in a multitude of color combinations.

The Spigen case is garbage. I bought one and the "kickstand" broke off the same day. Garbage

I was literally scrolling down to write that. Spigen kickstands are flimsy crap.

I have a Spigen kickstand case on my S8 and the magnet broke off the first week. I have it taped on but really cheap quality. I just bought one without a kickstand for my note 8.

Kickstand is garbage (though it goes back in place easily) but the rest of the case is pretty good. I guess I've been fairly nice to mine, but 2 months and a few drops later it's relatively scratch free. Still wish Magpul would make one for the S8, loved my S5 case by them.

I had the same experience. The Seidio Surface is the best kickstand case. Best Buy sells them as their "Platinum" cases.
