    Not your average OtterBox

    This case, because it only covers the sides and back of the phone, offers less protection than most of the other Otterbox cases which totally enclose the phone. This one would be probably more appropriate for the average person that's not going to be on a work job site where it could be subjected to dust, water and the potential of encountering rough treatment. If you tend to drop your phone frequently, this probably isn't the best case for you. But for the average person this provides adequate protection and of course OtterBox backs their cases with a really good warranty.

    I like the color. I just wish that Otterbox had as many available new Galaxy fun cases as their iPhone line seems to have around. Never crazy about paying $50+ for a decent case. Still it is a brand new phone and I didn't want to chance waiting for anything else to buy online or to wait for something to go on sale. Really, is it too much for me to expect Otterbox to have a couple of movie/comic/pop themed decent cases ready to go for a Galaxy9+?

    This is a very sturdy case, but none of the otter box cases come with screen protectors anymore. Therefore you have to purchase another product to protect the screen. I really like the durability of otter boxes, but I'm not fond of buying 2 products to protect the phone. I've not had any luck with screen protectors, so hopefully they will change back to an all inclusive otter box.

      Hi 4alan,

      We apologize that you're feeling discouraged by our screenless case styles for the Galaxy S9+! We intentionally decided to forego the built-in screen protector on the traditional Defender series in order to provide a clear, uninterrupted experience with the curved infinity display.

      We sincerely hope that the Commuter's sleek design is making it easy to use your phone when you're on the daily grind, and we're confident that this case should keep your device safe and secure for a long time to come. If you have any additional questions or comments, please don't hesitate to call our friendly Otters at 1-855-688-7269. They'll always do what they can to help out!

      Sincerely,
      OtterBox Customer Service Team otterbox

    I got this case as a gift when I u op graded my phone and I really enjoy it. I wish the sides had a little more texture for gripping, but overall it is a great case. I have had it about a week and while I haven't had any majordrops, the small drops and bumps have had no effect on my phone. The tab covers for the charging port and aux/headphones seem sturdy and like they will not break off.

    If you've used Otterbox cases before, then you've used this one. Each one in their line is basically the exact same regardless of which phone you use. I have used the Oterrbox "Commuter" since my Galaxy S4. They're as good and reliable as you could ask for. They add some weight, but they work extremely well. It would be nice to have seen actual color options with the new S9+, but hey it is what it is.

    I knew that Otterbox was a good brand for phone cases and so far it has been great. I have had it about a week and while I haven't had any majordrops, the small drops and bumps have had no effect on my phone. The tab covers for the charging port and aux/headphones seem sturdy and like they will not break off. I love the color and have attached a pop socket with no issues.

    OtterBoxes tend to be kind of bulky and pretty expensive but if you need that kind of protection for your phone it's worth the price. This particular one does not have the front cover on it so it is not as bulky or as expensive as some of the other models. The warranty on these cases is really good and from past experience I have found that they replace any damaged parts quickly and it no cost.

    I always purchase the otterbox phone cover to protect my cell phone from potential damage from unavoidable drops and bumps. This cover doesn't disappoint. It is sturdy, but not bulky, so the phone fits easily in my pocket and in my small purse. Since the rubber part goes on the inside of the case it provides even more shock protection than the 'all in one' cases sold. All in all a great purchase!

    If you use this with a certain glass cover (I will give you a clue: the brand rhymes with Zagg) they don't like each other. As a matter of fact I hear them clicking and sliding into each other in protesting fits of fantasy, each expecting to be the supreme leader in protecting my phone. Outside of that, it's great.

    Commuter Series case is a Really Good Case. But I really wanted Defender Series with screen protector. Not available anymore. Recommended by sales Clerk who said he has same phone, Commuter Series case doesn't have screen protector, so purchased Zagg screen protector. Only Caveat is Commuter Series Case is VERY slippery, unlike my old Defender Series on my old phone.

    I have used other box cases for everyone in my family. We all have often dropped our phones and these cases have withstood every drop that we have had. My daughter loves the commuter case but my wife and I are definitely defender case owners. Neither have ever let us down.

    I usually don't buy otterbox cases because of the bulkiness, even though they are great cases. This one however is slimmer and seems to be doing the job so far. I haven't had it that long but hoping it lives up to the name.

    The lighter color seems to get dirty faster than the darker colored cases. This case doesn't work very well with the screen protectors for this phone. It peels it off. Probably wouldn't buy again bc of the screen protector issue.

      OtterBox Customer Support

      Hi Blidd,

      We're sorry to hear this Commuter case hasn't been checking off all your boxes! Although protection is our priority, we understand aesthetic attacks can be discouraging. The good news is we're more than happy to send you a brand-new case that'll keep things looking fresh. Simply just give us a call at 1-855-688-7269 and we'll set that up for you.

      It is strange to hear about the issues you're having with your screen protector. As long as the screen protector was made by OtterBox, it should be compatible with your Commuter case. We have some great troubleshooting tips for the application and maintenance of screen protectors that we think would help. Please give us a call and we'd be happy to chat!

      Best,
      OtterBox Customer Service Team OtterBox

    I love otter box! One of the best cases I’ve ever owned. They’re a little bulky but, if that doesn’t bother you, then it should be a fantastic choice. It doesn’t work well with screen procectors, but if you have an otter box you really shouldn’t need a screen procector.

    This is my third OtterBox for a Samsung Galaxy phone. I've had 3 Samsung Galaxy phones in the past and have used the OtterBox to keep them safe. I've never had any issues with it, in fact I love it especially the low profile case. If it's great in the pocket and I don't have to worry about dropping it.

    At first I had the defender, but with it being rubber around the entire case, I couldn't get it out of my pocket without turning it inside out. I got this car instead and couldn't be happier! Provides more than adequate protection, without adding the bulk. Would definitely but again.

    I don't usually pay this much for a phone case, but I bought this one to replace an inferior product I bought prior to my phone arriving. At the price of this phone, I was willing to pay more to get better protection. I'm very pleased with this case.

    Not as good as the S6 Commuter

    Loved my Samsung S6 Commuter case however this one for the S9+ is a little harder to handle (a little slick). Also not crazy about how the edges fit around the curved glass. Doesn't cover the curve completely so I don't feel it is as protective. Other than that it fits nicely.

    I purchased this case for my dad who drops his phone frequently. He had this same case for 3 and a half years on his S5. Paired with a screen protector, this case will keep your phone in one piece and without a scratch. The only negative attribute of the case is the price.

    This case isn't too bulky like some others are, it still fits nicely in my pocket! I've dropped my phone quite a few times already and the screen hasn't broke, even though I dont have a screen protector. I am happy with this purchase and it was worth the price!
