My wife is upgrading to an iPhone 8 and would like a folio case similar to the Tech21 Classic Shell Wallet that she currently has on her iPhone 6 (https://www.amazon.com/Tech21-Classic-Shell-Wallet-iPhone/dp/B00O2LHFPG). Tech21’s Evo Wallet for iPhone 8 has a lot of reviews complaining about poor quality, so I’m trying to find another one — but am having a hard time finding a clear winner. Does anyone have recommendations?

She likes the look of the following:

Otter Strada Series Via
  • but doesn’t like that there’s no protection for the left/right/bottom edges

OtterBox Strada Series
  • but lots of reviews complain that it muffles the microphone

Griffin Survivor Strong Wallet
  • but it’s odd that it’s supposed to fit so many models (including iPhone 6), so I question if it actually fits well, and there are no reviews
https://www.amazon.com/Griffin-Surivor-Strong-Wallet-iPhone/dp/B076FGH3Q6

A lot of the reputable brands don't make folio cases, and most of the other ones I can find seem like cheap junk. She prefers synthetic instead of leather, all black or grey, bumper covering most of the edges, and she doesn’t use it to store credit cards. She just likes having the flip cover so that she doesn’t have to worry about the screen, without having to add a screen protector directly to the glass.

If any of you have tried these or have other recommendations for a folio case for iPhone 8, I’d love to hear from you. Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion. I don't know how I missed that one. Her one concern on seeing it is that there's no way to fasten the cover, so it can flop open (per one of the reviews). Otherwise, it does look promising, so we'll include it on the short list.
