They included the Spigen Tough Armor, the Caseology Parallax Series Caseology Parallax Series iPhone 7 / 8 Cover Case with Design Slim Protective for Apple iPhone 7 (2016) / iPhone 8 (2017) - Black / Deep Blue and the Nicexx Case with Kickstand. Nicexx [2018 updated] iPhone 8 Case / iPhone 7 Case with Kickstand and Slim Reinforced Drop Protection [8 ft. Grade Drop Tested], Shockproof for Apple iPhone 8 (2017) / iPhone 7 (2016) - (Black)
In the end I picked the Spigen Tough Armor. It has a sleek modern design, metal backplate insert, nice thick protective corners with raised screen lip, metal kickstand and stylish flush buttons. Overall, it just feels great in the hand, and has a great combination of soft and hard touch materials. Construction feels reliable and the Apple cutout on the back is a great look!
The second best IMO is the Caseology Parallax Series. It felt well built, semi-soft materials with a really nice modern case back design, but a bit thinner protection overall than the Spigen on the corners and screen lip. It lacks the kickstand which wasn't a huge deal but again, I prefered the angular and flush button design of the Spigen.
Last place for me was the Nicexx case with Kickstand. Not sure how it has 100% 5-star reviews, but something fishy is up there for sure. It feels cheap all-around, not much protection on the corners or for the screen, and the kickstand is not flush on the back so the phone teeter-totters if laid on its back. The case looks nice, but that's about all it had going for me, felt like it would crack easy on any real drop or bump and the kickstand would snap off for sure.
See the pictures for side-by-side comparison of the three cases and close up details of each.
This Spigen Tough Armor (2nd gen) is no different from my past 2 Spigen Tough Armor cases with 2 notable exceptions. The first is the kickstand, it may help when watching movies on a flight or helping stabilize the camera for timed photos; otherwise, it stays locked in place. The second (slight annoyance), the back opening for the logo is a bit too high (see image). It doesn't affect the protection or operation of the case, but makes me wonder if it was made more for the iPhone 7 or a production miscalculation. Slight annoyance, but I expected more from Spigen, considering their own website advertises it to work with the iPhone 8. I guess "work with" and "made for" are 2 different things. Overall, not a super big deal but I'm pointing this out as it may be a deal breaker for you. I also noticed on the iPhone 8 Plus with the Tough Armor case (2nd gen) as well.
The iPhone 8 is super smooth and I dropped it three times before getting this case (luckily onto carpet each time). This case keeps my phone in my hand while still being smooth enough to slide in and out of my pocket. I've still found ways to drop my phone... like throwing it across the parking lot while getting out of my car! Still no damage!!
Obviously, protection was my first priority, but the kickstand ended up being a nice bonus feature. It clicks open and close really easily.
The only slight issue I had with the case was getting used to the power button. It took a firmer press than I thought it should and I would end up pressing the volume button together with the power button pretty often. Once I got used to it, wasn't an issue any more.
I highly recommend this phone case!
