    It's a really good phone case the only thing I didn't like was that the rubber piece on top never stays down

    The galaxy glass is hard to protect, I tried glass protectors first, but was not getting the protection I wanted, this case seems to be doing a good job of protecting the phone when it's dropped.

    It is a great case but the only dislike is it did not come with built in screen protector and the glass one I purchased just slides off and has to be replaced often

    Have not dropped my phone by accident yet, so cannot state if it will work or not. Bought it because original flip cover from Samsung was worthless, phone dropped, broken glass, very costly repair.

    Otterbox is known for its toughness and durability. Not sure why they went to no screen protection though, maybe because everyone uses a glass protector.

    Multiple layers of shock-absorbing material couple and covers keep debris from sensitive ports, jacks and buttons. This OtterBox Defender case resists dust and scratches to maintain the aesthetic appeal of your device.

    I love Otter Box. The only reason I didn't rate a 5 is that after a few months the rubber starts to become soft and won't stay to firm around the plastic case

    The case does not provide any protection for the glass. Needed to purchase a separate glass protection cover.

      Dear Cathy,

      We truly apologize about any confusion surrounding our screenless approach to the Galaxy S8+ Defender series! We genuinely feel that our customers will have the best interaction with the uniquely curved infinity display via either direct contact or use of a separate tempered glass option. If you run into any future OtterBox questions, please don't hesitate to let us know - our friendly Otters are always just a call away at 1-855-688-7269!

      Best,

    I've always loved Otterbox products. This is a two piece system like previous design, but this does not have the plastic screen on the plastic/internal set.

    Always choose Otterbox cases when it came to phone protection. The only complaint is the lack of the plastic cover for the screen.

    Great case...would have been better to have had a screen protector as well, but it wasn't an option. As I have found out from doing some research...there is no screen protector currently available that will fit this phone well due to the curve of the glass.

    The clip needs to be stronger

    I've used Otter Box Defender for several years with Samsung Galexy phones 4 thru 8. The main issue I've is the clip breaks often, the plastic used could be stronger, I've replaced several clips over the years.

    Enjoy the features of this case but I wish the charging Port would not loosen up so fast. Also, the rubber case itself becomes loose after just a few months.
