The OtterBox Defender Case offers long-term and effective protection for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Its 3-layered defense protects your device from dops, scratches, bumps, and dust. The elevated edge protects the touchscreen from scratches. Damage is prevented thanks to the polycarbonate casing. Silicon, placed in strategic places, absorbs shocks and bumps. There are cutouts, so buttons and ports are still accessible. The belt clip is removable, but take a good look before you do. You can turn the clip so that it acts as a stand for your device. In short, the Otterbox Defender Case is suitable for rough circumstances, without sacrificing any functionality.
