I bought an iPhone 8 plus, the first time I purchased the "large" format iphone. I also bought a different case; one that had a flap that covered the front as well as the back and did a great job of protecting the phone. It was good but I didn't realize the flap would get in the way of speaking on the phone. So I bought the Spigen, having purchased one previously for a different phone, and am really happy with it. It's much easier to manage while speaking and, because the phone itself gets heavy in your hand if your call goes longer than 10 minutes, this case has a kickstand that let's you put it down without affecting your call. It's quite perfect.
