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.
