      Hey Slickster,

      Sorry to hear that your Galaxy S8+ Defender didn't seem to meet expectations! Our other two popular styles are the Commuter case and the Symmetry case, both of which still offer superior protection, but in much sleeker styles. Please feel welcome to check them out via the links below, and ring up our playful Otters at 1-855-688-7269 with any further queries!

      Commuter:

    This cover not only protects the phone from drops but also protects the camera when you lay the phone down as the camera is flush with the phone back cover.

    My Defender phone case is very aesthetically pleasing with its color, and very functional with the clip attachment. I am very active, so when it is not convenient to carry my phone, I clip it to my Swiss Army back pack, and make it easy for me to carry all the things we need for modern living.

    Just this case provides all the protection that it boat and more. The only draw back the screen protection is not built in

    I like how it is I dilated in the inside with padding, however the only flaw is that it doesn't go well with a screen protector. I put one on my phone and put my phone case back on, and it missed up the edges of my screen protector.

    My husband got this with his new phone. We were hit with a $150 fee because the back of his case on his last phone was cracked This case is strong and came with a belt holster. This means no pockets which will lessen the chance of breakage.

    Great case for those who are rough on their devices. Only minor complaint is the rubber backing will stretch out over time. This is replaced without question by Otterbox though without much difficulty.

    This case was higher in price then most. Wore out in less then a year. Rubber on back of case started to peal and looked nasty. Front has no glass protection.

      Hey there MikeP,

      Sorry to hear that your Defender series started to pull a banana act on you and 'peel' away! Our handy Otters would love to tighten things back up with a quick warranty claim, so please don't hesitate to give them a call at 1-855-688-7269. They'll mend this situation right away by sending out a solid new slipcover!

      Best,

    Love These Cases

    For years I have purchased these cases and the past couple phones that I have not purchased an otter box case for phones got dropped and broke. I am now back to purchasing the Defender series cases and will not go without one again. Was surprised when I seen they didn't have the screen protector like when I first started buying them so now I did have to buy a ZAGG screen protector. Will continue to buy these cases as long as they are on the market.

    This is great for protection but it's huge!!! I am returning it for that only. If I was a guy I guess it wouldn't be so bad but it's bigger than me, lol. Also, I do not like that it has a clip on the back to put on a belt or something.

      Hey there DamselDiana,

      Sorry to hear that the Galaxy S8+ Defender series doesn’t quite match your style! True, the case is a little thicker than usual because it incorporates multiple layers to provide maximum security. Even though the belt clip holster layer is optional, we certainly understand that the thickness of the case itself can still be a little difficult to get used to. We might suggest taking a look at our Symmetry series design, which offers sleek, stylish protection and might be more up your alley. Feel free to check it out by following the link below, and give our snazzy Otters a ring at 1-855-688-7269 with any questions!

    Looked at a few cases they had at the phone store and ended up buying the OtterBox. Have had the phone for about 3 weeks and already dropped it 4-5 times already and you'd never be able to tell. Can still use the phone's functions, doe snt interrupt the curved screen or the dinner print scanner on the back! Love this product.

    I just bought the s8+ and wanted a good, solid case to protect it. This does that and more. The belt clip can acted as a stand which is great. The only draw backs are that it doesn't have a screen. Which is does say on the box. And how thick it makes the phone, but that is to be expected.
