Mixed review- fits with screen protector, shields sides, but INSANELY SLIPPERY
This was the only one of 3 cases I purchased for my new Note 8 that a) allows for and doesn't ruin a tempered glass screen protector and b) gives good bumper protection to the vertical sides of the phone. While it does partially cover the edge function and edge lighting, I don't use them much anyway and would much rather those frighteningly exposed glass screen edges be protected. It's a fairly boring and un-stylish appearing case but it is protective, albeit against drops due to it's own

In the second hour I had the phone and put this case on it slid out of my hand and off from the top of my laptop keyboard and smashed face down on a tile floor in both cases. In both cases no damage to the phone, once the tempered glass screen protector popped off whole somehow. I have mixed feelings about how dangerously slick this case is, thank god it actually protects against the edges.
As a side note I use spigen magnet car vent phone mounts and the case allowed for the magnet strip to be placed on it's inside and no problems having the phone fit in afterwards. Fairly strong grip on the magnet compared to other cases and weights, but again, the case is so slippery that a good sideways knock might slip the whole thing off the magnet despite magnet strength.
I've always preferred Spigen cases for their quality, style, functionality, and durability but I can't get a decent screen protector to fit with them on this phone (same issue I had with the note 7). They also don't protect the sides of the phone screen edges as well either. They were never slippery though and had a good grip and were easy to disinfect as well (I'm a veterinarian and have to constantly clean my phone).
I'm going to give this case more time but short of wrapping it in duct tape to make it slightly less slippery, I'm at a loss for how to fix that aspect of it.
