    Another great product from otterbox, the only bad part is that I cannot get a case that has the built in screen cover. So now I have the otterbox paired with the Zagg glass protector. I have yet to drop this phone but i know that my otter box will protect it. this case also feels good in my hand, like it will not fall out. The case has a lot of grip and stability to it.

    Otter box is slaking on quality I've had this case for less than a month and the outer rubber is beginning to stretch out for the price you can buy a comparable case and a screen protector for the same price on a positive note they do have a lifetime warranty and they got rid of the annoying screen cover that scratches easily and traps dust between it and your phone screen

    I can honestly say I feel my phone is safe and sound now. The case is beefy. It fits snugly and works with my screen protector film. The only drawback I can see with this case is that since it is so thick, its much more difficult to use the fingerprint reader. They do recommend retraining it, and I have done so. Not sure it helped.

    I did not like my phone case and holder. It is big and bulky and unless you are someone who wears pants and a belt, it really does not clip and stay. As a matter of fact, I tried to clip it to my pants pocket and it popped off and fell to the ground. It absolutely would not stay. I have had phone cases/holders in the past that worked just fine clipping to my pocket.

    Truly hard to write a review on a case has never been dropped so I really can't tell you how well protects the phone. However with the phone in the case it feels very comfortable in the hand. The only thing but I don't like about this case is it does not come with a built-in screen protector. But other than that my wife loves this case would buy again.

    OtterBox - Defender Series Case for Samsung Galaxy

    Love how this case fits onto my S8! It's got a really nice grip and isn't bulky like Defender cases I've used in the past and I liked it not having the cover screen because it allows me to use a tempered glass screen protector (Luvvitt Case Friendly Tempered Glass) with it. It also has a nice raised edge so that my screen will not get scratched up. Very impressed!

    I would not have a cell phone without an Otter Box. Good quality and strong protection. However the design of the holster leaves a little to be desired.The center piece that holds the phone in the holster is prone to break. I am not telling what I heard, I am telling what I know. I had one for a phone that had the "locks" on each end and it was perfect.

    I think it does its job but the phone lost its aesthetic value. It was bulky. Didn't work for me. But if you feel comfortable adding an extra size for the protection then you may go for this. I started using another cover which gives my phone protection from fall even from 12 feet which i think is good enough and came with a screen glass protector as well.

      Hey DocV,

      We apologize that you're finding the Defender case a little too bulky for your taste! The extra layers on the case provide maximum security, but we recognize that it is a bit thicker than an average case. Perhaps you would prefer our Commuter style, which still offers a high level of protection, but has a slimmer style. Please feel welcome to take a look by following the link below, and reach out to us with any questions by calling our friendly representatives at 1-855-688-7269!

    Defender series have always included screen protection so having a model without it makes me wonder why choose this over the Commuter. Anyways, is a pretty good case and has more padding than the Commuter so there is that. Its awesome how it does not interfere with the edged screen, my previous full cover case made it really uncomfortable to use edge functions.

    Otter Box Defender is amazing. I didn't have my new Samsung phone even 24 hours when I dropped it on the concrete steps on my way out of the building. The phone was in the Otter Box and face-in to hard plastic holster at the time. The phone survived the fall undamaged. I'm a fan! Thanks, Otter Box!

    A fine phone, though big

    The Galaxy S8+ is a powerful, full-featured phone that performs very well. It's a lot bigger than the Galaxy S4 Android phone I used previously, and how one navigates the features is different, so that takes some getting used to. The Otterbox is thus bulky, but it does protect the phone well. The S8+ has an outstanding camera. All in all, a decent phone.

    The fits well and offers good protection and is what I have come to expect from Otter box. I have been experiencing difficulties being heard during phone calls though. It works fine on speaker, with ear buds and over Bluetooth. That being said, I think the case may be the problem and not the phone. I'm not sure if anyone else has had the same issues?

    I have had the Samsung 8+ since it first came out. The same day i bought it I put this case on it and it's kept the phone in great shape since day one. I just replaced that cover with a new one only because it was worn from regular use. I wanted to make sure the phone was getting the best protection it could get.

    I love Otter Box anyway and this case did not disappoint. It is not as bulky as the older ones and the only thing I was concerned about was the lack of screen protection like the older cases. I put a screen protector on that is made to work with a case and I am totally happy and sure my phone is protected.

    I don't like the flap blocking the charger and headphone jack. I don't like no screen protector at the same high price. I don't like I can't take off the case quickly for VR. I do like the fact I no longer accidentally click the Bisbie button. Probably return for something that has quick removal and no flap blocking ports.

    My favorite feature is the battery life. I'm on my phone all day for busyness and when I get home I still have a charge. The wide screen is nice but I have trouble with the keyboard which is my only knock about this item. I feel that from time to time the auto correct corrects the wrong words and it can take multiple tried to correct this.

    This is worth it's weight in gold. You can buy cheaper versions but I'd rather pay a bit more up front to protect my phone investment now that phone prices are through the roof. Love that they got rid of the plastic, clear phone face cover-up used to get so dirty and was hard to clean. Now you can save it bare or buy a Zagg cover.

    Really nice case for my galaxy. It has alot of grip so I won't drop it. Plus I have dropped It before in the past and this case protected my phone. Overall I would recommend buying this one because its a defender rugged case. Otter never failed me yet.

    The case feels very robust though significantly extends the size of the phone. OtterBox has raised edges to protect the glass. I haven't dropped my new phone yet, but I think it will be OK. Stays very tight on a belt. The case is pretty difficult to put on the phone and to take it off, but one doesn't need to do it too often.
