Second Best Purchase
If this Defender,for a S9, works as good as the first one , for a S7, it is MUCH more of a value then 100 times the purchase price . I have a hay farm and the phone is my life line , it goes where I go . The S9 got run over by a large tractor , a smaller tractor , and a dozer . It also got plowed under and had to dig for it . The screen protector got replaced twice , the Otter Box was gouged in the plastic part , BUT , it protected the phone 100%, numerous times . The Defender Series does just that , and I thank you for such a great product .
LOVE THIS CASE !
I have an Otterbox Defender that saved my phone countless times ! When I had to choose a new phone I actually checked to make sure there was an Otterbox Defender to fit it ! This is the only case I will ever buy, as long as Otterbox keeps making it !
Otter Box #4
Like I said in the title, this is my 4the case from Otter Box. I spend aloy of time in the outdoors hunting and fishing so this is the only phone case for me. They are the only cases that hold up for what I like to do. Unfortunately this time I didn't read very well and got one without a screen saver but that's on me. Keep up the great work you guys are doing.
Otterbox customer for Life
This is my 3rd otterbox as the last 2 were both tragically run over by cars had I not had this fantastic product I would have had to replace 2 phones. This protective case is excellent and both time my phone only sustained a tiny scratch. Can't say enough ,will only buy Otterbox products
Bought this case again for my s9 after having this type of case for my s8. A great case that protected my phone completely even after several times of being dropped. Would highly recommend. Just don't buy the alpha glass to go with it. Dropped phone once and alpha glass screen protector just fell off and broke. Not happy especially as not cheap.
this is the 2nd case I got for the phone. It's a very strong case that protects the phone very we. I would tell anyone to get a defender case .
I bought this case because of the durability and protection I received when I used a Defender with my S7. I love that they have made it slimmer which is easier for me to handle. With my clumsy hands and 2 little kids I know my phone will be safe when its dropped.
The only draw back to this case is how stiff the cover for the charging port is. I had issues with my last phone, the cover rested on the cable and caused the cable to eventually not connect properly in the phone. This resulted in me having to buy new charging cables. Another solution was for me to remove the rubber casing when charging my phone which caused it to stretch out and in the end not fit well. I am hoping this will not happen but seems to already be affecting how the cable sits in the phone when being charged. (I set my phone flat on the table to charge so there is no unnecessary bending or angles to the cable other than the pressure from the case)
Always an otter box
I had to buy a glass screen cover and it fits fine with the box but it stays pretty smeary. Not the otter box's fault, but I actually think I prefer the old plastic screen. I have had an otter box for years and couldn't imagine going without one, very well made.
Not what my S3 defender was
I just upgraded my S3 to an S9 . My S3 lived it whole life in an Defender series case ..to this day that phone still looks almost brand new .(great case). When I bought the S9 I ordered another Defender thinking it would be the same design but that's not the case for this model ..not happy about the open face style case but about the only option if you want a holster to store your phone. To sum it up the case does fit the phone well ..just not happy with exposed glass and I don't want alpha glass either! Phone fitment into holster is a wrestling match to get it in correctly and puts a lot of pressure on the phone to get in so that does not get used now... sorry Otterbox you dropped the ball on the case for this great phone.
No plastic screen cover
Unfortunatly, with samsungs curved screens (which also serve no useful purpose) the case doesn't have a screen protector built into it. On my last phone (Galexy S6) the plastic cover saved my phone countless times. I have had my phone a little over a month and one corner of the screen is scratched beyond belief. I even put a glass screen protector on it -- the plastic one was far better than any other I have ever come across. I wish they could figure out how to put the plastic back in it.
I love my purple otterbox! It's my favorite colornamd it protects my phone, what more could I ask for?!
I bought it a month ago OtterBox and I thought it was one with the glass over it but it works for now
Need to open my eyes
Good protector but I missed the no screen protector inclosed so it's not really doing much protecting
Simply the best
This is the third Otter box I've had for my last three Samsung phones and they're perfect for me and my job. I'm a plumber and so it gets a lot of abuse and none of them have let me down.
Had to replace again
This is the second one I have had to buy since getting my 9S. The tips keep breaking off so it will not hold the PHONE AND THEN I HAVE TO BUY THE ENTIRE SYSTEM WHEN ALL I NEED IS THE PLASTIC HOLDER
Typical Otterbox quality with one flaw
I have only had this S9 defender case for 1 month, so far so good. Something has changed from my previous S4 defender case. The durometer (rubber softness) of the exterior case is much harder than previous defender. This at times makes it difficult to release tab for power cord jack. Perhaps overtime as this gets cycled the tab will become more friendly. Overall I would expect same durability of my last case,3 years.
Like my Otterbox Defender
Love the color. It compliments my lilac S9. I was afraid I would end up with a case that would hide the color. I don't give it 5 stars as I wish it would have come with a screen protector. It does add a little bulk to the phone but it make it easier to hold on to. I like the fact that the holster clip also serves as a stand.
Very happy with it
I bought this case as i have had many otterbox's before. Ive always liked the cases and style but very annoyed to find they no longer offered a case with a solid front. I decided that it was worth a try. Its a fantastic case with great grip and fits comfortably in your hand. Lightweight and no overly bulky. Worth every penny
I bought this for my girlfriend since she dropped her phone and almost broke it. She is a little clumsy sometimes. She loved the color and her phone remains undamaged. She dropped her phone yesterday and No Damage! Like the holster as well for working out our when she is cleaning around the house
GREAT phone holster!
It's durable, and performs it's function exactly as advertised.
Pleased in every way with my purchase.
