    Feels sturdy and reliable

    This case is a really good item. Not amazing, but really good. Feels sturdy, durable and reliable . Hard plastic reinforced internally with soft rubber and extra cushioning on the corners. I feel no worries about what would happen f I dropped this. Only flaws I can find are 1. The dust flaps on the bottom might get worn out in time from opening and closing so frequently. 2. The soft rubber areas around the front of the frame located next to the buttons seem to pry open very easily. Meaning if it was to catch on something it could easily get inside the case or maybe damage the phones screen...in a way this defeats the purpose of the anti dust ports and is a weakness of the design. The bezel keeps the front of the phone off the table and the case has enough on the back to keep the phones camera/sensors off the table. You could go with less and get the symmetry case by otterbox...or more and get the defender .....but I feel tnis is just right in the middle. Much happier with this instead of my tech21 tactical. That thing had little to no protection on the bottom, ports over exposed, and no protection on the bottom back . This address all the areas I had issues with.....its not perfect, but a great improvement. Fyi it's tempered glass friendly. Just applied a invisishield for the S8 (generation 2) with no compatibility issues . Fits great and gives me piece of mind that my $750 phone is protected from drops and spills onto the floor.

    Otterbox never disappoints

    I have been an Otterbox user for several years now. I have epilepsy and am prone to muscle spasms that cause me to drop or slightly toss my phone without warning. I have been using the Commuter level cases for multiple phones, they're not the decorative rubber cases or the extreme ones for construction workers or anything, just the middle grade style. I had the Galaxy S7 before I switched plans and got the S8. When I had the S7, my epilepsy got the best of me one day and I fell down a flight of hardwood steps, my phone was in my hand and came with me. It bounced all the way down the 15 steps and hit a wall at the bottom. There was only a very small scuff and paint transfer from the wall that rubbed off, but the phone was completely undamaged. I have yet to have an incident with this new case, but I'm sure that I won't be disappointed with it's performance. By the time I'm ready to upgrade my phones, I could give it to anyone and they would not be able to tell that I had it for 2+ years because the cases are so good that it keeps the phone in mint condition.

    So. To preface this. My wife and I had purchased new phones. But we also have a toddler who loves to play with her phone. And sometimes throw it as all 2 year olds do. I knew she needed something to protect a $700+ phone. The glass it uses is pretty darn tough already. But the phone itself. Not so much. Having already broken her last phone due to being thrown we needed a good case to protect it. Enter the otter box. It's well survived and protected her phone from being thrown down the stairs onto the concrete with nothing more than a tiny scuff on the hard plastic. Plus, it has a cover for the charging port and headphone jack as to help prevent dust and water from getting into it. The phone itself can be dunked with no damage done. But the case adds a bit more security. I highly recommend this case! It's well worth the money. Which is already pretty low considering the high quality. Added bonus that the wife loves the color.

    This is my second OtterBox case... my first one was on my previous phone, a Motorola MAXX... even though it bulks up the phone slightly, it has saved my phone numerous times when I've dropped it from waist height. The Samsung S8 is even more fragile than the MAXX, so I made sure to get an Otterbox. The phone has managed to do some flips and fly to the ground from table height... and the phone doesn't have a scratch. I love how the charging port and headset port is covered to prevent debris from trickling in. I also love the responsiveness of the buttons when I press them. Holes align perfectly... no complaints...I love it. I do however wish there was a kickstand of sorts if I wanted to watch movies on it on the fly.

    My "go to" phone case

    OtterBox Commuter has long been my go to phone case choice. I have used it for years on my different phones and it has always done an outstanding job of protecting my device without too much unwanted bulk or the half assed protection of some of the other cases. This case hugs my phone with a soft and hard shell that I feel does a superb job of absorbing shock from reasonable hits and falls but still fits comfortably into my hand and my pocket. It is not too bad on the old pocket book either;) BTW...the blue color of the new Commuter case compliments the exclusive Best Buy Coral Blue Samsung 8 color perfectly!

    The Otterbox Commuter case provides great protection for the Samsung Galaxy S8 phone. We have two identical phones and had the Otterbox on one and purchased this one from Best Buy for the other. The price was higher from Best Buy, but was able to pick up in store since we needed it immediately. Nice feel, it provides protection without adding bulk. It goes easily in and out of pockets, yet has enough texture to give a more secure grip on the phone. Not a flashy look, but protection is the goal for us. The Commuter does NOT include any type of screen protection. It works with our screen protectors, be sure to select a case friendly screen protector.

    I spent the last 8 years as an iPhone supporter. Apple makes great devices, but I needed something that suited my style, not to mention have more reliability. Battery life on the S8 is amazing. The resolution of the screen is beautiful. And the option to have an sd card for extra memory is something I wish Apple would have used. I understand clouds and whatnot, but sometimes I just want to know I have a physical place to have my photos and videos and other data. I held my breath when I switched, but this Galaxy S8 has been more than I could have asked for. No regrets moving on from iphone.

    I have the purple Samsung phone and the case matches it perfectly. There is another Otter case that is very similar that comes with a clip which I purchased in black for my teenage son. The color for the case like his is pink and purple versus two shades of purple . .. was not fond of the pink at all, so I got this one instead. I was a bit disappointed that they were not the same material - his case was more rubberized and a tiny bit thicker where this case is more like plastic. However, I wasn't so disappointed to trade to the pink/purple and this is still a good case to protect the phone.
