Samsung LED Wallet Cover
Samsung is always good for creating cases that feature some awesomely unique features for its phones, and few are as cool as the LED Wallet Cover.
This brilliantly designed case blends screen protection with functionality, allowing you to see the current time and view notifications via LEDs without exposing the screen — all you do is press the power button and presto! This case also features an interior pocket for storing your cash or cards, which can help you cut down on your pocket carry.
If you want a super sleek-looking wallet case that’s made by Samsung itself, you can enjoy this great case for just $60.
Spigen Slim Armor CS
If you want the functionality of a wallet case that doesn’t look like a wallet case at all, you need to check out the Spigen Slim Armor CS ($16). From the front, it looks like a standard phone case, but on the back, you’ll find a hidden compartment where you can store two cards — say a credit card and your photo ID — or a reserve of cash.
It’s the best of both world for those who want a more traditional-looking case but also want the option to have some emergency cash on hand without needing to bring a whole wallet.
ProCase Genuine Leather Wallet Case
The ProCase wallet case includes three card slots, but based on reviews, the slots can easily handle more than one card — and you might find your cards slip out too easily otherwise. But your phone will never slip out, thanks to the form-fitting inner shell, which should offer great protection from shocks and drops on the corners and edges.
Get yours from Amazon starting at $28 for the black leather model and up to $30 for the flashy red leather model.

The front flap is kept closed with a magnetic strap, and can also fold over to become a kickstand for hands-free media viewing. You get get one for just $16.
Ringke Slim Case w/ slot card holder
Ringke’s slim case for the Note 8 is pretty basic as you’d expect, but it has included a pretty nice accessory for cutting down your daily carry.
