    A decent but expensive case

    Posted
    David

    This was my first Otterbox case and it isn't bad as far as protection is concerned; you know its not supposed to be heavily armored by its lack of size. And it did protect my phone when it flipped out of my shorts pocket onto my concrete patio. The case is a one-piece with what looks like 3 materials: a completely clear, hard back that lets you see the back of the phone, a frosted hard plastic for the lower part of the sides and a TPU-like soft material for the edges. It's this TPU edge that was already yellowed when I bought it in March. Even if it wasn't yellowed at purchase time, it's only late May as of this review and it shouldn't be yellowed yet (see photo). Overall, I wouldn't buy this again as I expect more when I pay this much for a case. Pros: 1. Fits with Whitestone Dome Glass screen protector. 2. Clear (mostly, see Cons). 3. Slimline. Cons: 1. Top rim of the case was yellowed out of the box but the packaging was yellow, so I didn't notice until I got it home. 2. Expensive.

    Epic Fail

    I was hoping to get something a little sleeker than the Platinum case and holster combo. This case was an Epic fail. Received today 12/20. Swap out case to Otterbox, first phone drop in this case and phone cracks. Extremely disappointed. Now I have to pay hundreds of dollars to get screen fixed. Literally broke my phone less than 7 hours after putting on this case. I regret taking off my Platinum.

      We're so sorry to hear that your Galaxy Note 8 didn't survive a tragic spill in the Symmetry series case.

While our warranty does not extend to the Samsung device itself, we would very much like to offer you a new OtterBox in the event that your current case was jeopardized during the incident as well. If this sounds like an option that you would like to pursue, please feel free to reach us at 1-855-688-7269. We'll be glad to further assist you with this!

    So Much No

    This is without a doubt one of the worst cases I've ever had. This case almost made me hate my phone, until i realized the issue was the case and not the phone. The case doesn't conform to the shape of the phone as it should, so when you place the phone against your face, the ridges of the phone feel like painful sharp edges against your skin. The rigid, oddly placed edges make it difficult to use any features or letters that are close to the curved edges of the phone. I replaced the case and discovered the phone is flawless, the case is horrendouse. Sorry Otterbox, this is a fail.

      Dear TweedleDee,

      We're bummed that your Symmetry series was so irritating! Sharp edges are definitely not a typical experience for our cases, and we're sorry to hear that you felt the need to replace it. If you still have the original case lying around somewhere and feel willing to give this a second chance, please feel welcome to call our friendly Otters at 1-855-688-7269. They'll gladly hook you up with a warranty replacement case that we're confident should work seamlessly with your Galaxy Note 8!

    One Drop... Cracked Samsung Note 8 Glass!

    Posted
    MadCustomer

    This case has the most shallow design and doesn't protect the glass. Don't be fooled like we were and bought into the Otterbox Cerfified Drop Protection Stamp on the Front of the Package. The phone case also is slick with no grip so expect it to slip out of your hands and when it does, kiss your $1,000 phone goodbye. Going to purchase a reliable Speck case next go around.

      Hey there MadCustomer,

      We're genuinely sorry to hear that your Galaxy Note 8 did not survive a fatal fall while in the Symmetry series case, and that this incident does not reflect the commitment we have to providing the best device protection possible. We actually do perform numerous tests on the Symmetry case, but unfortunately every drop is subject to myriad different variables, some of which are beyond our control, and we cannot guarantee that absolutely all exposure to risk is eliminated through the use of our products. Although our warranty does not extend to the Samsung device itself, we would very much like to offer you a new OtterBox in the event that your current case was also jeopardized during the incident. If this sounds like an option that you might be interested in, please feel welcome to call our friendly Otters at 1-855-688-7269, and they'll be glad to further assist you with this.

      Sincerely,
      OtterBox Customer Service Team otterbox

    Oh Otterbox, this is such a miss! For the first couple of weeks I had my phone, I thought I didn't like the phone. Then I changed from this case and realized I loved it. The edges of this case are painful on your face when you're talking on the phone, and make using the screen difficult & unwieldy. This is one of the few items I'm actually boxing up and returning.

      Hey BettaBoop,

      We're so sorry to hear that your experience with the Symmetry series ended up being so rough! It is extremely odd that the case had such sharp edges, and we find this a very curious situation indeed. Had you contacted us, we would have loved to send you a smooth warranty replacement, but we also certainly respect your decision to return the product. Should you have any further inquiries or comments, please feel free to call 1-855-688-7269, and our friendly Otters will be happy to help!

      Happy Holidays,

    Protection and durability is great. All the cut outs are exellent. It will also let you use wireless charging without any problems. The only knock i have about the case is I wish it would have came with a screen protector. Hope there is one that can work good with the case. That is what's keeping it from 5 stars.

    Semi protective

    With the Note8 having rounded sides, it's nearly impossible to have compete protection against drops. If it falls flat on the screen, the raised corners will help protect it, but a fall on it's side will be bad. Case is great to show off the color of your phone as long as it doesn't yellow like the typical clear cases do.

    It's a great, may be even the best clear/ protective case on the market.. still has some flaws. Sharp corners and un-clicky buttons. Sacrifice thinness for protection. I have big hands and have no problem with the fingerprint scanner, which I seem to struggle with other cases.
