Protect and reveal? This CrashGuard bumper case for Galaxy S8 does the trick

The case line from RhinoShield has a storied history of protecting the world's most popular phones, and when we say storied, we mean that its innovative polymer structure has allowed them to escape unscathed after a two-story drop. Even better, they are one of the few prominent bumper makers with their CrashGuard series, and are now offering a quality bumper for added protection of your Galaxy S8 and S8+, while at the same time keeping its shine rear visible in full.

How good is the CrashGuard? Well, the hexagonal polymer inner exhibits such superior impact spread, that you can throw your phone from ten feet height, and it will absorb the clash with the ground like a champ, as you can see in the S7 edge bumper promo video above.

Slap a film or glass screen protector on the S8, and you are pretty much golden, considering that the back is made of Gorilla Glass 5 anyway. RhinoShield's CrashGuard bumpers start shipping from April 15 for $24.99 in black, gray and blue, but if you have a bit more patience, they might pop soon on Amazon at a much lower rate, too, as usual. Any bumper fans out there?

Nothing can protect the curved edges.

If one of the selling point of this phone is the curve edges, then why cover it with a case? It doesn't make any sense.

After you drop it, it will make a lot of sense. Try it if you don't believe it :)

That's why a lot of people wanted a version without curved edges. It is easier to protect with a minimalist bumper case and cheaper.

Bumper + skin + screen protector should do the job.

I am a fan of the slim bezels + bumper combo. On one hand normal bezels + a bumper result in huge bezels, on the other hand slim bezels without any case are fragile and impractical. Also, a bumper case really showcases the premium feel of a glass front and back phone while still offering some essential protection.
