Bought this case March 11th & received it March 20th. I appreciate the fast delivery!
Initially I was apprehensive about the Symmetry Series at 1st because it was very thin. I assumed it wouldn't be as protective as the more bulkier cases that Otterbox offers. However, I decided to go with the Color: Stardust.
After placing my phone into the case, I tried the power, volume, and Bixby buttons to see if they were difficult to press. After reading last years reviews for the S8, I was afraid they'd be too stiff. However Otterbox listened to the reviews from last year and this year the buttons work great & are easy on the fingers. I didn't find myself struggling at all.
Afterwards, I laid the phone down on a flat surface & the phone didn't touch the surface at all. It is protected by the case at the top & bottom. (I will insert pictures.)
I love the fact that the back of the Symmetry case provides guidance for your finger to the fingerprint sensor. You don't have to worry about smudging your camera, because the case leads your finger directly to the fingerprint sensor.
I have the Lilac Purple S9 & the Stardust case looks amazing on my device.
When held up to the light or the sun, the case is definitely eye catching! I'm not a huge fan of the color purple, so I love that the case changes the hue of the purple just a bit. It can come off metallic purple & maybe a tad pink (my actual favorite color).
I am extremely satisfied with this case & I hope it keeps my phone safe because I have a history of dropping my phones a lot! Thanks for taking time out to read this review & I hope it was very helpful!
