    Awesome case, unbearably difficult power button!

    I am a huge tech 21 fan. Had their previous versions of the tactical cases and loved them, so when I picked up my new S8+ I went straight to the newly released case with no questions asked. I did notice that a few other reviews mentioned trouble with the buttons, but I ignored what I read, figured how bad could it be, and trusted in tech 21. Turns out the other reviews were not exaggerating. The power button is insanely difficult to press. You can't just casually hit the button lightly like I have with all my other tech 21 cases. You need to grip the phone tightly in your hand and then use your thumb to press down HARD to get it to work. Sometimes I have to use two hands. Other than that this case is fantastic, but this issue is a deal breaker. Comparing my other cases it looks like they skimped out on materials for the buttons so they are much thinner and thus 10x harder to press. I will reach out to tech 21, I am assuming is is a first run production issue. Unless it's resolved this will be going back and I'd advise others to steer clear until it's fixed. Will update my review when I get their response.

    It has potential, but.....

    I wanted to like this case so much. The design and color are great and the case itself feels very sturdy. However, I have two issues with it. First, which has already been pointed out, the power button is sometimes impossible to push. I feel pushing the power button numerous times and hard will eventually cause damage to the phone, not to mention it's also quite annoying. Second, I do not feel this case protects the phone adequately. As soon as I put the case on, I felt as if I had to carefully place the phone down because the phone screen itself protrudes from the case, which means if it were to fall on the ground screen side down, the screen would hit the floor and not be protected by the case. I do not want to test this theory and as much as this case has potential, if you really want to ensure your phone is protected, get something different. Unfortunately, I am taking this case back because I found a perfect protective case to replace it.

    Seems to work well

    I don't like cases on my phone. I normally only use a screen protector, but since the screen protectors for this phone seem to be struggling I felt I needed some kind of protection. This case is pretty good. It's fairly unobtrusive and not too bulky. I have 2 complaints: 1: the power/screen lock button is VERY hard to press. Not sure if this will break in or not. 2: I normally rest the bottom of the phone on my pinky when typing. the cutouts on the bottom of the case for the charger and such get in the way of comfortable pinky resting. I'm honestly not sure what they could have done to avoid this because obviously they need those openings, but it's a bit annoying to me so I thought I'd share.

    Good Protection, Hard to Press Buttons

    I tried this "tactical" type of case for my new Galaxy S8 Plus. Overall, it's very snug in fit, and helps the hand grip the phone well. I would think that the product will offer very good protection - BUT - my biggest downside to this product is that it appears the spacing for the side buttons are not carved out well. It was EXTREMELY difficult to press the power and volume buttons. I don't know if this was simply a flaw in the one I obtained, or if this is a design flaw. But after several days of struggling with attempting to push the various buttons through the case, I had had enough and returned the product to the store.

    This case is really great! It's profile is not bulky to add too much to the phone size. I have dropped my phone once in the first 7 days that I have had it and the case worked just as it is described. It has a air cushion affect around the phone. One negative is that the rim of the case is not tall enough to protect the edge profile of the S8+ curved glass. And, the case does not come with a glass protector. You will definitely want to get a glass protector to go with the phone and to supplement the protection of the case. The price of this case is fair to moderate - $34+. Pricey for what it is.

    Fit is 10/10 Form is 7/10 Function is 7/10 It fits the S8+ perfectly, with a raised protective lip around the whole phone. The Edge screen is a little tough to access at first. The buttons, even after 2 weeks, are very difficult to push. It isn't very grippy in your hand, and is very cheap looking for the price. You cannot, as with most cases, use the VR. Wireless charging and payments work just fine with this case. Although the case fits as advertised, I will not recommend this case. There are better looking and better feeling cases out there.

    I have loved tech 21 products for years now since the iPhone 5s, this case offers rocksolid protection for the galaxy S8 plus. Has great grip and a solid build the puts your mind at ease knowing your phone/investment is safe from any drops. The only glaring issue at least for me is it is very hard to find any screen protectors especially tempered glass screen protector's that will fit this case without the case pushing the screen protector off but other than that if you want a solid case for your phone/investment then look no further .

    I went into the store looking for a plain, inexpensive case option just to protect my new phone. I have used this brand on other phones in the past so decided to stick with them. I have now had it for 6 months and can say that I am satisfied with my purchase. My 7 year old has dropped my phone a time or two while walking around and nothing has happened so far. It's a good sign to me. *fingers crossed that my luck holds up*
