Defend that curved screen: VRS Design introduces a wide variety of cases for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+

VRS Design is a case and accessory maker with a line of really smart phone cases, ranging from slim and discreet to bulky and uber-protective. The company has a history of being ready for new handset announcements with cases fresh out of the production line and up for shipping. Naturally, with a hot upcoming handset like the Galaxy S8 and its Plus counterpart, VRS Design is, again, prepared to protect your expensive new purchase from day one.

So, the company has outed a dozen of case models for various needs and tastes — from slim to stylish, to credit card holders, to armored. Here's a closer look at all of them:

Slim Cases


In this category, we have two models — the Single Fit and the Crystal Mixx. Single Fit is the simplest case here — a solid piece of TPU, molded to cover the phone snug and keep its corners safe if a bump should occur. A lip around the camera keeps the lens safe, too.

The Crystal Mixx series has a completely transparent back that showcases the beautiful, shiny phone underneath, and a reinforced TPU frame to keep its corners safe.

Leather Cases


VRS Design loves its stylish cases and the leather-clad models are always a part of its lineup. In this category, we have three models, starting from the minimalistic, but good-looking Simpli Mod and going up to the gorgeous, wallet-like Diary.

So, the Simpli Mod has a faux leather back with an accented stitch running down its center, and a plastic frame to protect the phone. There are openings for all the buttons, so you get to feel your phone's hardware. The Layered Dandy model is a wallet-type case made with faux leather, wrapped around a plastic phone holder. Lastly, the Genuine Leather Diary series is also a wallet, but it's made of genuine leather — it's soft, classy, and clean in appearance. We also have a spin-off, called the Genuine Leather Croc Diary, with a patterned finish on top. All wallet cases have three card slots and a cash pocket in the flap.

Card Storage


A play on the wallet concept, card-holding cases are bulky protectors, which make use of their space by letting you store cards (credit card size) in a trunk-like compartment. VRS Design has two such models.

The Damda Folder and Damda Glide share the same basics — a TPU body that also has a polycarbonate shell over its back. The latter has a flap, which opens to reveal a compartment that can hold 2 (Glide series) or 4 (Folder series) cards.

Protective Cases


Time to go into the highly-protective models. VRS Design is ready to defend your Galaxy S8 or S8+ from unfortunate drops with 4 different variants to choose from. The High Pro Shield series has a TPU back with a polycarbonate bumper, which can come in one of 3 colors. The Crystal Bumper is much the same, only its back is fully transparent. Next is the Thor series, which is thicker, due to being a mix between a TPU body and a polycarbonate shell that covers its entire back. Lastly, we have the extra-sturdy Terra Guard, with reinforced corners and military looks. The last one is only available for the regular Galaxy S8, though.

There will still be glass screen protectors for the s8 series and rumor has it they will be alot better than what was out for the s8 edge. Won't ruin the touch sensitivity like before.

What I do hope for is an official tempered glass screen protector. Cases are useless if the screen is not protected properly.
