    Not up to otterbox standards

    Let me start by saying that I have used otterbox defender cases for a very long time. I have ipad case, 3 iphone cases, and LG G4, Galaxy S6 and most recently my Galaxy S7 edge. So being an otterbox fanboy and being familiar with their unsurpassed quality I went ahead and bought a defender for my Galaxy S8. Saying that I was disappointing is an understatement. First of all otterbox did the same thing with the screen protector that apple did with the headphone jack, they dumped it. So now, I have a defender case without a screen protector, for the same price as I paid for my S7 edge case with screen protector. So I have to spend extra money for a screen protector. Second, the holster does not hold the phone (in the case) very well. My S7 edge holster held the case like an iron jaw, but the S8 holster holds the case very lightely and I am convinced that it will fall out when I walk.

    Nice Rubberized Case. No Screen Protection

    When I got my Galaxy S8, I also purchased the Defender case with the Otterbox AlphaGlass screen protector. Within days, the thick glass cover popped open the case (case is a two piece unit that snaps together), due to its thick material. The glass also made it almost impossible to "touch" activate things on all edges of the screen (top, bottom, and sides). I returned the Alpha Glass, but now I am worried the screen is unprotected. I have an OB case on my old HTC One smartphone, and that was near bulletproof, so I am hopeful this Defender will protect the Galaxy S8. I like that the top and bottom of the case are raised which keeps the S8 screen from making contact with a flat surface (a table for example). BUT, like all other S8 cases out right now, the sides leaves the screen exposed to contact if the phone were to hit the edge of the table. I am PRAYING OB will come out with a plastic overlay to adhere to the S8 screen, for protection. I do like the belt clip holder and the phone does fit into it with a distinct SNAP. It does take some effort to pull the phone out of the holder, so I am confident it will hold the phone tightly on my belt. The phone can be snapped into the holder with the screen facing out or in. Purely for the lack of a useable screen protector, I am rating this case a 3.

    My first Otterbox and it was horrible. The case covered the phone fine but I use the holster quiet a bit including on bumpy bike rides through the city. It dropped my phone on the first day and several times thereafter!! I replaced it with a Platinum holster and case which works so much better. Dump this overprices useless piece of plastic...it will eventually break your phone!!

    The only bad thing I can say is that the case needs a screen protector and the belt clip doesn't hold the phone in.

    easy to assemble and overall good solid case. The only thing I didn't like was the lack of glass protection and that the screen seems to come a little above the overall protection of the case

    Another great case from Otterbox

    I've always trusted Otterbox and this is no exception. I don't miss the screen protector since I always applied a hardened glass shield anyway. The flat protector they always included most likely wouldn't work with the curved screen so it's no loss. The case provides arguably one of if not the best protection available and the belt holster snaps on securely to the case. No complaints.

    I bought this for a Galaxy S8. It came unclipped at the slightest bump passing my truck fender. Although it protected the phone, my 50 dollar zagg screen protector cracked. I have a Galaxy S5 with the same model, never has come unclipped from the holster, even when the holster has been pulled off of my pocket.
