Chances are, your new tablet will go wherever you go, but even if you’re mostly planning on using it at home, it pays to invest in a protective case to keep it safe from scratches, bumps, and drops. There are already some great cases available for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus, and we’ll be adding more cases to this list as they land. So don’t waste time hunting online, just take a look through our pick of the best Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus cases and covers — your new case is on this list.
Supcase UB Pro Series Case
First up on our list is the UB Series Pro case from Supcase. This full-body rugged protective case features a built-in screen protector for 360-degree protection and a handy fold-out kickstand for hands-free viewing. It provides military-grade drop protection against long drops, throws, and falls thanks to its multilayers of protection constructed from shock-absorbing TPU and tough polycarbonate, with a TPU bumper for added screen protection. This scratch-resistant case also features an S Pen holder on the back, perfect for stashing your stylus on the go. The heavily rugged look may not be for everyone, but it’s still a great protective option.
SaharaCase Multi-Angle Case
This vivid aqua case from SaharaCase stands out in a crowd for all the right reasons. The front folio cover is crafted from PU leather, protecting your tablet’s screen from scratches and drops while also folding back into a handy kickstand. A soft microfiber interior provides added screen protection, and the case automatically wakes your tablet when opened, putting it to sleep when closed to conserve battery life. We love that this case includes a raised bezel around the screen for added protection against drops and scrapes. There’s even an in-built S Pen holder to keep your stylus on hand. However, it’s on the expensive side for a tablet case.
ProCase Slim Protective Folio Case
What’s slim, lightweight, and keeps your new Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus safe from scratches and drops? This folio case from ProCase. Available in black, red, or green, it’s made from high-quality ABS materials designed to absorb shock from impact. A strong magnet closure ensures it won’t flip open in a bag and also supports the tablet’s sleep/wake function, boosting battery life. There’s an onboard S Pen holder to stash your stylus, and the case folds back into a dual-position stand for sketching, note-taking, video calls, or Netflix binges.
Samsung Book Cover
This lightweight, sleek case from Samsung costs a bit more than some others on our list but is worth every penny. Attaching to your tablet magnetically, the cover wraps around, book-style, providing protection for the screen. The free-angle hinge adjusts to two different positions that are perfect for viewing, sketching, or taking notes, and there’s an auto sleep/wake feature to conserve battery life and ensure your tablet’s always ready to go when needed. Onboard storage for the S Pen inside the cover is also handy when traveling. Pick this case up in a choice of five colors — we’d go for the light green, pictured. However, it will set you back a pretty penny.
Speck Balance Folio Case
What’s slim and stylish yet offers superior protection for your Galaxy Tab S8 Plus? Speck’s Balance Folio case. This super-slim folio won’t add bulk to your new tablet, yet its soft interior lining protects the screen from scuffs and scratches, while the outer shell shields against drops and bumps. The case even folds out into a handy viewing or typing stand, and there’s space to securely stow your S Pen. A secure latch closure keeps everything in place and includes built-in magnets to support your tablet’s auto sleep/wake feature, conserving battery life when you’re out and about.
We love that this case includes a magnetic camera shield that covers the lens to protect it from scratches, retracting automatically when it’s time to snap a photo. This package is rounded out with in-built Microban antimicrobial protection that reduces stain- and odor-causing bacteria growth on your case by up to 99%. Pick it up in two-tone Stormy Gray/Charcoal Gray or Arcadia Navy/Moody Gray.
Spigen Tough Armor Pro
Spigen is known for its protective, rugged phone cases, and its tablet cases don’t skimp on the protection front either. The Tough Armor Pro case features shock-absorbent dual-layer TPU and PC protection with Air Cushion Technology, to keep your tablet safe from drops, bumps, and scratches. Raised edges around the screen and camera provide additional protection should you drop your tablet, and a built-in S Pen holder offers easy slide access, so no more fumbling around for your stylus when you need to quickly take notes or make a sketch.
This tablet cover is compatible with Spigen screen protectors and features a built-in durable kickstand, which folds out for hands-free video calls or watching the latest movies. Pick up this case in Gunmetal or black for under $30 and your tablet will be protected against whatever the day brings.
Fintie Hybrid Slim Case
Clear case or colorful folio? If you just can’t choose, Fintie’s Hybrid Slim case gives you the best of both worlds. This case has a crystal clear scratch- and shock-proof back which shows off the color of your device, with a hard shell front cover available in a wide range of colors and designs.
The tri-fold front cover folds back easily into a kickstand for typing or viewing, with built-in magnets for auto sleep/wake, preserving battery life, and a built-in S Pen holder means your stylus is always to hand. There’s also a soft microfiber interior lining to keep your tablet’s screen safe from scratches. This case comes in a choice of nine solid colors, five marble patterns, or a retro book-style cover. We love the beachy blue, white, and gold marble of “Sandy Wave”.
Ztotop Ultra Slim Case
Prefer your cases ultra-slim? Ztotop’s case ticks all the boxes, protecting your tablet from dust, dirt, bumps, and scratches without adding bulk. This super slim case has a premium PU exterior and a soft TPU back cover. Built-in magnets support the auto sleep/wake function to minimize battery drain, and there’s a built-in S Pen slot to the rear of the case too. The tri-folding cover folds back into a dual-position kickstand for the perfect typing or viewing angle.
Ringke Fusion Case
For those who prefer a crystal clear case to show off their new tablet, Ringke’s Fusion case is a great buy for under $25. This crystal clear PC case has a clear or black TPU bumper, depending on which option you go for, with a built-in flexible TPU S Pen holder that makes it easy to remove and store your stylus. A raised bezel around the camera and screen tops off the protection package. This case is also compatible with most screen protectors including film and tempered glass protectors.
Olixar Leather-Style with S Pen Holder Case
Finishing off our roundup of the best cases is this sleek, leather-style option from Olixar. Available in black or blue, this case features a soft microfiber interior and leather-style outer lining, with a robust plastic frame inside to hold your tablet securely in place. The case is padded to provide protection from drops and bumps, but slim enough to not add bulk, with a built-in S Pen holder and handy interior document and credit card pockets. It’s one of the more professional-looking options on our list, making it the ideal choice for the office.
