With the April 28th launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8 creeping up on us, I've been trying to find a good case to protect my new phone — even though I don't usually like covers. I think I've settled on my favourite: this leather-wrapped case from Mujjo.
These Mujjo cases for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ aren't cheap — 50€ for the S8+ case translates into about £43 before shipping is tacked on - but their price is justified. We've used a Mujjo leather case on an iPhone 7 and the quality of the leather used is excellent. (The case for the slightly smaller Galaxy S8 is about £36.)
Mujjo's new cases are super-slim, and they're fully wrapped in full-grain leather — like Apple's amazing first-party cases, you don't see any ugly seams or edges in the leather when a Mujjo case is on your phone. They've got cut-outs for power, volume and Bixby buttons as well as for the rear camera-plus-fingerprint-reader, and you can choose from black or tan.
It's not a hugely protective case like the kind you might find from brands like Tech21, sure. Those absolutely have their place, and they're probably a safer choice in the first place. But you want your shiny new Midnight Black S8+ to look good, right? That's why I'll pick up one of the Mujjo cases in black.
These are actually the first cases that Mujjo has released for anything other than the iPhone, so that has to be a bit of a hat-tip in the Galaxy S8's favour — not that it needs it. [Mujjo]
