After reading the first reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, we saw a lot of people claiming that the phone actually lost its beauty due to the size. That is not true at all, since the handset looks incredibly good, as it follows the same design language used by the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. And we all know that these are considered real works of art, in terms of design!
So we agree, the Note 8 looks good. But its biggest downside is that it can be considered very fragile, so it’s in big need of a case.
What happens if you’re among those who totally love the design, but also want to add an additional layer of protection? You get a clear case, of course!

Fortunately for you, there are a lot of great Samsung Galaxy Note 8 clear cases available right now, some of them with excellent prices. In order to make things even better, we picked some of the best looking models of the moment, then put them in a top. How does this sound?
These are the best Samsung Galaxy Note 8 clear cases you can get:
1. Caseology Skyfall Series Slim Transparent Case
The first item on our list is the Caseology Skyfall Series Slim Transparent Case, an ultra clear model which, besides allowing you to show off a bit, also adds a serious amount of protection to your phone. I guess we can call it a heavy duty clear case, isn’t it? We don’t see why not, since it’s actually MIL-STD-810G 516.6 certified and drop tested 26 times. That’s some protection, if you ask us!
The case has two layers, being made with clear TPU and an impact resistant polycarbonate frame. Also, the durable scratch-resistant clear cover is perfect for customizing the phone a bit, besides offering long-lasting clarity and protection. On the sides, there are responsive button covers, with crisp feedback, as well as precise cutouts and a raised lip protection. You can get it in Orchid Gray, Warm Gray, Matte Black, or Blue Coral.
2. Trianium Clarium Series Scratch Resistant Case
One of the best Samsung Galaxy Note 8 clear cases we’ve come across is the Trianium Clarium Series Scratch Resistant Case, molded with accessible buttons and cutouts, as well as designed to precisely fit the phone. It’s made with full shock-absorbing TPU and has a rigid back, for added protection against scratches and scrapes. What we really like is that the slim profile does not add additional bulk, but still manages to create a comfortable grip when held in the palm of your hand.
The transparent body of the case enhances the original color and design of the phone, while the raised bezels keep the screen and camera off flat surfaces, for additional scratch and damage protection. And it’s compatible with most screen protectors as well! The case is available with a fully clear look, but also with Blue, Midnight Black, or Pink bumpers.
3. Spigen Rugged Crystal Clear Case
The folks over at one of our favorite companies are also present in our top with the Spigen Rugged Crystal Clear Case. It’s a slim and flexible model, thanks to the TPU layer used for designing it, not to mention that it can be very easy to apply one. And we love the way it wraps around the phone, enhancing the original look of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
The all-new streamline design introduced by this case ads an edge to the original look, while the fact that it’s military grade certified, alongside the Air Cushion Technology, present on all four corners, makes sure that it can deal even with some of the most serious shocks. Unfortunately, there aren’t any color options for this model.
4. VVUP Clear Slim Full Body Case
Check out the VUUP Clear Slim Full Body Case, one of the thinnest Samsung Galaxy Note 8 clear cases we could find. Still, don’t get fulled by this, since it’s actually a pretty tough model, able to offer 360 degree protection, keeping the phone safe and sound. It has an anti-skidding back, TPU lining and bumpers, while the built-in screen protector makes sure no scratch will get on the phone’s display.
The case fits perfectly on the phone, featuring precise cutouts for quick access, as well as tactile buttons for quick responsiveness, managing to maintain a seamless look. It’s definitely the best pick for those who want complete, all-around protection for the phone, but without compromising the design in any way.
5. Simptech Neo Hybrid Case
Ok, time for something a bit different, but still in the ‘slim cases’ category. We’re talking about the Simptech Neo Hybrid Case, a case with a heavy duty look, thanks to the reinforced bumper, able to absorb any type of shocks, caused by accidental drops and not only. And it looks pretty cool around the phone, isn’t it?
The case has a fully clear back, which somehow enhances the beauty of the device, not to mention that it has a raised lip around the camera setup, which makes sure that no scratches will get on it. Another lip protects the display, so you can put the phone even faced down on a flat surface, it will remain unscratched! Finally, we should also mention the cutouts and tactile buttons, which make easing the phone very easy.
6. Supcase Unicorn Beetle Hybrid Case
Supcase does an excellent job with their cases and the model we picked for our top, the Supcase Unicorn Beetle Hybrid Case is no exception. It’s constructed of high-grade polycarbonate and TPU, and features a clear, scratch-resistant back-cover, which emphasizes the phone’s overall design.
On the sides, the case has a rubberized bumper, available in four different colors (Black, Navy, Pink, or Purple), which absorbs the force of an impact, in case you somehow manage to drop the phone. Slim and stylish, the case won’t interfere with the phone’s functions or buttons. As a bonus, the case exceeds military shock standards, so it can help your phone ‘survive’ even the most serious drops or shocks.
7. Lumion Slim Fit Full Body Armor
And finally, the last entry in our top with the best Samsung Galaxy Note 8 clear cases is the Lumion Slim Fit Full Body Armor, a dual layered model, made with durable PC and shock-absorbing TPU. Basically, it’s designed in such way that it can maximize shock absorption in case of an impact.
As you can see, the back is fully clear, highlighting your phone’s design without compromising protection. The case has exact cutouts, so you can access the ports with no problems at all, but also TPU button cover, which allow responsive feedback and protection. And finally, you can choose from pretty much colors, including Black Metallic, Blue, Gold, Purple, Silver, or a really nice Blue Sea.
And this is it, folks! These are some of the best Samsung Galaxy Note 8 clear cases we could find. Believe us, there are plenty of models to choose from, but we like to think that we put just the best of the best here. Therefore, it was pretty difficult for us to decide upon our favorite, but after analyzing all models once again, we reached a conclusion.
Our pick: Supcase Unicorn Beetle Hybrid Case
This case has it all: it looks very good with that bumper wrapping around the phone nicely, it’s clear enough to show the phone in fully glory and, most important, it does one amazing job with protecting the phone.
