    Good protection, yet compact

    I looked hard online at all of the write ups and tech data, but finally went to the store to touch and feel several cases. This case has rubber surrounding the phone with a hard fiber (could be plastic) that covers the back, corners, Top and bottom. The rubber is exposed on the side edges which provides for a nice soft and effective grip, while the hard material protects the corners and back. The hard material is not slippery. The openings for the Hd Ph Jack is very adequate for my plug on several of my Hd Ph's. The opening for the S pen is one of the largest of any I viewed, making the pen removal pretty easy compared to many other cases that I tried. The USB opening is also adequate. The cutouts for the fingerprint reader is just the right size and flawlessly guides your finger to it - nice touch. Actuating the buttons under the rubber works fine. The kickstand works good in the horizontal position. I've used it in the vertical position, but I don't think it was designed for that, as it seems too weak in that direction. So, I've used it carefully in that orientation. If it sounds like I got paid to write this, I didn't. I just believe that Samsung has checked every box on this one. Oh yeah, it looks nice too, IMO.

    Awesome high tech protective case

    I really like this case. I got the cloud silver Note 9 and got this case in silver ... awesome combo. I love that the case feels grippy/textured in my hands and even if placed down on a slightly uneven surface it doesn't slip. It's not real slim but also not too bulky either. It has a cool high tech look about it which is nice. The protection seems good except not sure about the curved side areas ... but don't really want to have to find out! The only reason for giving it 4 stars is because the charging adapter cube which came with the Note 9 doesn't work with this case since the cut outs are extremely recessed ... likewise it makes pulling out the S pen slightly more of a precision task, especially for a guy with big fingers. Overall ... definitely worth buying!

    Good overall protection, needs work

    Ok so this is a pretty good case, a little rubbery grip on the sides, good access to buttons, access to the S Pen is good as well. No problems plugging in USB-C cables. However, I have had trouble getting this fully charged using the wireless charger. It would only charge to about 70% with this case on, so I take it off and charge it without the case and it charges fully. Also, some accessories require the case to be taken off in order to plug stuff into the usb-c port, specifically the DJI osmo pocket and DJI Mavic 2 Pro. It does have a bevel on the front that extends above the screen so you can lay it on its screen and not have the screen touch the surface youre laying the phone on. Overall, its pretty good protection, but its not really compatible with the wireless charger, and has to be taken off to connect some accessories to the usb-c port.

    THE "NOTE 9" OF CASES...SUPERIOR IN EVERY WAY

    SAMSUNG'S "Rugged Protective Cover" IS QUITE LITERALLY THE "NOTE 9" OF CASES...SUPERIOR IN EVERY WAY. AS A STUDENT AND CREATOR OF TOMORROW, MY NOTE 9 HAS BEEN DROPPED ON MULTIPLE SURFACES (WOOD, TILE, CONCRETE, BLACKTOP, LINOLEUM), TOSSED IN & OUT OF BOOK-BAGS, CARS, ETC., AND EACH AND EVERY TIME IT COMES BACK WITHOUT A SCRATCH, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, WITHOUT A BROKEN SCREEN. THIS FEATURE ENOUGH SELLS ITSELF, HOWEVER, IT HAS ONE MORE TRICK UP ITS SLEEVE. THIS CASE ALSO FEATURES A RUGGEDLY-DURABLE, METALLIC-SNAPS BACK-INTO-PLACE-KICKSTAND (UN-NOTICEABLE WHEN NOT IN USE). WHEN IN USE ALONG WITH THE NOTE 9'S UNEQUALED DISPLAY THIS CASE'S EQUIPPED KICKSTAND STEALS THE SHOW. BY FAR! APPLE FANS USUALLY WALK AWAY MUTTERING SOMETHING UNINTELLIGIBLE.

    I have had the galaxy Note 9 since the release. I am really enjoying plenty of things about this phone the first being the battery life. I was unsure what to expect with what Samsung called all day battery but now after using it I can easily make it all day on one charge. The camera is outstanding in both low light and bright. The sound is good with the stereo speakers. The new S-pen being bluetooth is in my mind really innovative and cant wait to see what developers use it for. As usual the screen looks fantastic. The only thing that I am not the biggest fan of is Bixby. For now it is not as useful as Google assistant is. The nice thing you can still use google but I am still left with a dedicated button that I would rather remap to google assistant. Other than that one issue I would tell anyone how solid of a phone that it is.

    More phone than most need

    Great phone. Not a fan of the new OS UPDATE though. I bought the 512gb because not many people have it, and the stores only had limited supplies on hand (which sucked because I wanted black, and no one had it locally, and I didn't want to wait). It is definitely overkill for what most people would use it for. Unless you need the stylus, I'd stick with the s9+ for half the price. Or wait for the s10 5g to come out. Owned every samsung android from the beginning. The moment, the epic, all the s series 1-9+, and the note 8 and 9. Can't wait to see what they hold for the future.

    This cover give great access to your side buttons

    This is the first time I have used a Samsung cover for any of their phones. I need something that is durable and can withstand abuse. So I was a little sceptical when I saw how slim and form fitting this case is. It has exceeded my expectations. It has protected my phone against some pretty high falls of over 8 ft, without a acratch. Accessing the side buttons on this case is just like not having a case on it. The buttons work easily without mashing against the case for response. The kickstand that lays totally flat on the back is an added bonus for watching movies.

    Nice rugged cover that is not bulky

    When I looked at it online I did not like it. I went to Best Buy to get the OtterBox Defender, I tried it in store but it felt really bulky, like I'm holding a brick. I decided to try different ones... Tried the Silicone Cover from Samsung, I really liked it but seemed like it doesn't give you much protection, so I looked at the Samsung Rugged Protective Cover, figured I'll give it a try... It feels good in hand, doesn't add much bulk to the phone and it's MIL-STD-810G drop tested. Looks much better on the Note9 than on the pictures online. I'm verry happy with it.

    Full protection but won't last

    The presentation of the case is to make one think it is indestructible. The case covers the crucial areas of the phone and the kickstand is a nice bonus, but this case isn't as promising as it may seem fresh out of the box. The kickstand WILL fall off, as mine already has. It does snap back into place, but at some point the stand won't go back on because of the wear from going from on to off. The finish looks very nice but will easily scratch with the first drop of the phone or slide across a dirty surface. It is a nice case, but won't take long to wear out.

    So this cover is exactly what it says it is. Its rugged with some style to it, the kickstand is also pretty cool and seems to have a magnetic feature to snap back in place quickly. What I didn't like was that my magnet phone holder was not holding the phone on, maybe it's a little too rugged. I also didn't like how slick the case was, I like a little texture on my phones for grip. Lastly, and probably the deal breaker for me was that my pop socket wasn't holding due to the grooves on the case. I opted to return this case and go with the Tech 21 case, this one I love!

    Surface is non slip which is really nice. Only a couple issues for me that kept me from going 5 stars. 1. Normal headphones have a hard time fitting when the cover is on. The hole just isn't wide enough. Most people including me use bluetooth so this might not be an issue. 2. I don't have finger nails so getting the S Pen or opening the kickstand require getting something to help get them out or open. Overall, great product and does the job... protecting g my phone. Couple small inconveniences however they may not effect you.

    Great case protects my new phone nicely. Ridged texture on back, has a slightly grippy feeling, but not overly grippy, allowing easy removal from pockets. Buttons are ready to push, but not TOO easy, so you're not activating your phone while pulling out of pocket. Cutout for S pen holder deep enough for easy removal of pen. Plus has a kickstand, not the steadiest but does what I need. No screen protection, but why would I want to cover the best looking screen out there? Will buy again!

    An excellent choice for the Note 9

    If you're looking for a nice protective case for the Note 9, look no further. The only downside I could find was the added weight to an already heavy phone, but that's the price to pay for protection. The kickstand is great and I like how it's designed to break away yet not break. It can be popped right back on the case. It has a great "lay on the table" design if you like to lay your phone face down, and the case works great with the Whitestone Dome screen protectors.

    Case has a great feel. Not slippery but also doesn't grab your hair when talking on your phone (my wife says that's a problem with some silicone cases she's had in the past). So I got her this case because I have the same one and she really liked it. Only reason I only gave it a 4 stars is it's what I would call medium size for adding bulk, but that goes with the good protection it offers. With that said it's size doesn't affect using the screen.

    Stylish & Protective Case

    Bought this in a bundle to save 20% off accessories. No brainer if you want to protect your $700+ investment in a phone. Didn't like the other bulkier cases (or slimmer shells). This product is specifically made for the Note9 (and other versions). Love the style and protective features of the case. Also has a kickstand. The case does not block the other areas of the phone as some cases do making it difficult for people to hear you.

    +Feels good in hand. +Looks classy +Seems tough and good quality. +Slim with minimal bulk compared to other thicker cases + Top and bottom lip so safe to lay Note 9 screen down +Works great with wireless chargers -The stand is flimsy. - Could use a little more grip on the sides -Expensive. Either way my favorite case so far. Samsung did an excellent job! Just be careful not to break the fragile stand.

    This case is one of the best for the Note 9. The case itself fits very snug and it has a raised lip so you can lay your phone down on a table without worrying about scratching the screen. My favorite feature is the built in kickstand. The kickstand makes watching tv/movies a piece of cake. Never once did it feel like it was slipping out of my hand. Overall a very nice rugged case that doesn't feel bulky

    I've had this case on my Note 9 for a couple of weeks now and I must say it is hands down one of the best cases I have ever used. Has a nice feel and grip to it with a kickstand. Buttons on the side work great without any issues and just the overall design and safety for the price you pay, it out does all the expensive cases they have on the market. Trust me you'll like this case a lot.

    I was looking for something with heavier-duty protection but was hoping to avoid the bulky feeling of an otterbox-style case. This case is the answer! Of course, coming from Samsung, it's designed to fit flawlessly, which it does. Provides ample drop protection and didn't disturb my glass screen protector one bit. And lastly it looks AMAZING! Very very happy with this phone case.

    I bought this case as it was the only one that was not a flip cover that seemed like it had good for only one that was not a flip cover it seem like it had good protection. Planned on purchasing a different one once the phone and been out for a little bit. Have drop this phone many times including on its face and it's intact fully. Very pleased
