    Going to purchase an iPhone 8 Plus after years of leaving iPhone. My only iPhone was 4S.

    What is the best kind of phone case to use? Leather? Silicone? Something else?

    From time to time, I drop my phone to the ground because my palm is smaller than
    that of the average people. I almost drop my phone once every month, even if I handle with care. Every phone easily slips away from my palm.

    By the way, does iPhone 7 PLUS has the totally same physical size as 8 PLUS?

    My wife has a pop socket on the back of her 8 plus. It never appealed to me, but I tried it the other day, and it really makes a noticeable difference in being able to keep a good grasp on a big phone and use it one handed.

    previously on my iPhone 8 Plus i had:
    Spigen ultra hybrid 2 with red trim
    spigen neo hybrid in pale dogwood [pink/rose gold to match iphone 8 plus gold]
    tech21 pure clear
    tech21 evo check

    either case are amazing get one that you like, spigen ultra hybrid 2 and tech21 pure clear has a transparent back if u like to show it off if not too fussed about showing off then the other two are good. tech21 evo check probably has the best drop protection if that becomes a concern and its a bit thick but reassuring [at least]

    That case is dirt collector (or you can say magnet) just look at the bottom on the glass so much lint which can harm the finish.

    I personally like spigen cases and I have ordered liquid armor for my XS Max which is yet to arrive.

    It’s not a magnet for lint and dirt at all. The photo doesn’t do it justice. There’s virtually nothing under the back glass of this case after more than a weeks use.

    Ok. But I can see dirt particles in that image. Right around the corners.

    It’s very minimal to be honest. I’m very impressed by the look of this case

    Ok. Here’s the liquid armor case I use for my 8 Plus. Ordered exactly the same for my Max. Very good case with minimal thickness.

    OP, I sent you a message, I've got several left over cases from my 7+ that will work with your 8+.
