The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are starting to ship, and picking up a new phone means picking up a new phone case. While it may seem like a shame to cover up that gorgeous display with a case, it's an even bigger shame when you drop your new phone and smash it to bits.

If you've got an S8 (or the larger S8+) and need something to protect it, there are already plenty of cases on the market. While we haven't seen these cases in person—and crucially don't know how well they play with the S8's rear-mounted fingerprint sensor—these are from brands like Spigen, Caseology, and Samsung itself, so they're from makers we know and trust.

The #1 phone case on Amazon right now is this simple, attractive number from Sigen for the larger S8+. It comes in a wide variety of colors and has a fancy herringbone pattern on the back. It's also available for the smaller Galaxy S8, though that version is only the #2 seller on Amazon.

The Samsung S-View case essentially mirrors your lockscreen notifications on the case's cover.

Samsung's S-View case flips closed to protect the screen while still displaying information like the time, date, weather, and your missed calls and texts. You can even swipe to reject calls through the case's cover. The S8 flip cover will cost you about $55 while the larger S8+ cover is $5 more.

Samsung's LED wallet case has a dot-matrix LED display with an inner card and ID pocket.

This case is a bit different from the S-View case above, with a simple LED display on the outer cover that shows you some notifications. You can still swipe the cover to silence calls without opening it, though, and this case also includes a pocket to store cards and IDs. You can get one for either the Galaxy S8 or the larger Galaxy S8+, and both cost $59.99.

This simple, clear cover from Samsung protects the S8 and S8+ without covering up the design. Crucially, it leaves the fingerprint sensor more exposed, which should make it easier to activate. You can get one for the S8 for under $20, and it's the same price for the S8+ version.
