    Terrible..

    I had the tech21 evo check case on my galaxy s6, and I loved it. When I recently upgraded to a galaxy s8 at bestbuy, I didn't consider any other case, I bought the evo check case for my new s8 as well. What a mistake that was... If you are holding the bottom half of your phone so that your thumb can reach the home button, it is very difficult use the lock button with this case, a lot of force is required to press down the power/lock button. See picture one for where my hand is. If you are holding your phone a little higher and your finger is centered over the power/lock button, the amount of force required to depress the button is a little more acceptable. See picture 2 for where my hand is. This is a terrible design flaw in my opinion and makes me absolutely hate this case.

    Case grips so well, which is why I bought it again for my S8, just as I had for my S7. HOWEVER, it does not remain white/clear if you keep it in your pocket. My cases have both turned blue within the first few weeks of using them, from carrying my phone in my jeans pockets. If you don't mind the case turning to blue, it's a GREAT case. Both phones have endured drops and the cases have protected the phones completely. I would purchase again, but may as well choose a color over clear next time! (I like the color of my phone, which is why I choose the clear ones, but it doesn't end up showing through, anyway!)

    Looks good and feels beefy while being thin.

    Got this at time of purchase with my phone and so far I'm happy with it. It's got a very firm beefy feel and hugs the phone really snug. This one (white and clear) goes really well with the phone (arctic silver). Buttons are stiff and rubbery but will respond with a firm press. Also I don't have any problems accessing the edge panel on my phone, in fact the case kind of prevents it from accidentally happening. So getting to my edge panel is definitely an intentional swipe. Ports are easily accessed on the bottom and usb cable goes in fine. The only thing you will have an issue with is the usb flashdrive adapter that comes with the phone; it's too wide for the space the case has. The large majority of usb flash drive combinations will have this issue. Other that that one small thing, it's a good case. Will see if any yellowing happens over time.

    My previous Galaxy (S5) had an Otterbox Defender on it, and I went through two of them as the buttons didn't work very well for me. I was a little skeptical of this case as some of the reviews said that it made the buttons hard to push. Well, it DOES make the buttons a little harder to push, but they DO work; it just takes a little effort to push them - they push ACCURATELY. The case has a nice, grippy feel, but it still fits easy in my back pocket - the Defender would drag on its rubberized case. The only drawback I see is that the EVO doesn't have coverage for the front of the case. But none of the other cases did, either. This case seems to protect the sides and back of the phone, and you can still see most of that beautiful curved screen. Oh, and it keeps the thin size of the phone also. Very pleased!

    Had a coupon for this phone case and decided to give it a shot. So far so good, I like the slim yet durability that this case has provided so far. I haven’t had an issue with the buttons on the side, and the way the bottom of the case is set up it protects the aux, speaker and charging port quite well. My only qualm about this brand as with every other brand out there, there isn’t a variety of colours for Samsung branded phones, like iPhones. I probably would have given it 5stars if there were more colours/styles for the s8 ( the iPhone has like 9kajillion different variations) Not everyone has an iPhone, just saying.....

    This is my second phone case by Tech21. I had my first with an IPhone 6 Plus and now for the S8. I love it and it works. Best features include critical protection for drops and it preserves the sleekness of the device...will never buy something different! I've owned the Pelican/Lifeproof/Otter protective cases and truthfully this Tech21 has out performed all of them from my perspective. I don't want a big clunky case, I don't need a full water proofing case, I simply want protection from the typical everyday "slipped outta my hands" events. I don't drop my phone a whole lot...but it happens and this is the first case where coupled with the tempered glass has not broken. Seriously cannot say enough positives about this case!!!

    This is the 2nd Tech21 case that we have put on a phone in our family and over all we are very happy. We have a pink one on a Galaxy S7. The new case on my Galaxy S8 is light weight, smooth feeling, and provides enough protection to the body of the phone without hindering use. I've had the case for 4 days now and I will say that the buttons on the case are very stiff. I have to press pretty hard to turn the screen on/off or adjust the volume. Hopefully these will soften as the case breaks in, but that is my only concern.

    Tech 21 Evo-Check Phone Case

    The Tech 21 Phone case is the only phone case I will buy. I watched a salesman throw his phone against the wall then across the room where his phone landed on the concrete floor. When he picked it up there was no damage to the phone whatsoever. Though I would not suggest throwing your phone across room I was sold on the Tech 21 case. The Tech 21 Evo-Check case has a nice slim, not bulky fit. The case is easy to put on and take off. Until something better comes out the Tech 21 case is the only case I will buy for my phone. Oh, one other note, during the salesman's demonstration he also had a tempered glass screen protector on his phone.
