    Verizon coverage is bad in our area And now we found out my fiancé gets a discount with AT&T. So we are switching. I have a LG V10 now. I absolutely loved this phone.... After the update and now the battery life is pure garbage. So I think I am switching to the note 7 when we switch carriers.

    Some of you are complaining about battery not lasting.. Have you checked what is draining it? I had to uninstall Firefox for that reason, using 70% at times...crazy.

    Another brand new youtube review which shows the original design with a screen protector that is not built in but is all one piece of the top part like the pics on amazon show. So it looks like they made two versions of the defender. The original one that they show on their website and in this review looks better.

    Really stinks for people who got the version with the terrible screen protector unless those were counterfeit maybe?

    This looks like a FAKE china case if I've ever seen one.

    I've had my Otterbox Defender on order from Amazon since August. I'm still planning to try that one first and if it doesn't work out look for something else. Has anyone had any experience with the Zizo case? I really like the look of it for the Note 7.

    I have one for the note 5 and S6 Edge Plus. Great cases. Not bulky and reliable. I don't have that same one for note 7 yet. Right now I have a blue and black zizo case for note 7 that is without belt clip. I think this design is better. Just wish it had a clip. If you you interested I can try and post a link later tonight when i get off work

    Actually go to that link you posted and and search note 7 cases and the first pic is the black one and it the one that cost 16.99. I got the black and blue. That case feels better than the one you looking at. But both are great cases

    I had this first before the defender. I found the protective lip on the front top and bottom was smaller than the speigen. After 2 weeks the thinner bottom part of the rubber began to stretch out and stay stretched out. I was not happy with it at all.

    Yes i have😉 I use this screen protector from bestskinsever.com. I got the glossy case fit one and have had it on for bout a month now and love it. It stuck as soon as i applied it and edges have never peeled up. You can buy the one for the screen only or for the whole phone. I got one for screen first order. 2nd time I ordered for the whole phone. Both time I got it 2 or 3 days after i ordered it.
    Do you use this with the defender does it cover the egdes fully

    That sucks. As I posted, it seems Otterbox is using two different types of screen protectors. The one pictured on their website and on Amazon which looks like hard plastic and all one piece, or the other traditional kind like you have that is flimsy and junk like on most other Defender cases. I wish they would be consistent with these. I wouldn't want to spend big $$ and get the flimsy kind.

    Yes I do. I got the case fit so it don't completely cover the edges but there is only a tiny part of each of the edges that aren't covered. So you wouldn't even notice unless you looking for it. You have 2 options to choose from case fit and regular where all the edges are covered. I chose the case fit cause didnt want to take a chance that the edges would peel up when putting on or taking off cases. It works great in defender case with or without the defender built in screen protector. I just didn't like the defender screen protector so tool it out lol. Sorry took so long getting back to you. Just now seeing this. Just know these are wet apply kind. Dishing washing detergent and water is all you need. Helps alot with keeping fingerprints off the inside of screen protector when putting it on.

    whats the point of paying $60 for a case that keeps dust out when the phone is dustproof
    It just means you'll have to take off the case to remove any dust that gets stuck in between; like any other case :/

    What's sad is the Defender for the S7 and S7 edge had that nice thick rubber liner on the back shell and seemed to be of better quality then past Defenders.
    Guess they really went back to cheap & cheesy with the Note 7 Defender.

    Here is another review. Pure garbage! I'd go with the Evo Tactical XT any day of this. The Defender for my Edge is top notch so far though.

    I'm sticking with the Evo Tactical XT for now. Decided to return the Supcase Beetle Pro b/c I just don't think it has much shock absorption with the rigidity of the case. I do think the Beetle Pro is a good value, but I'm willing to pay more for the Tactical XT because of Tech 21's claims regarding drop protection. Per the Tech 21 website--

    "Extreme drop protection. FlexShock™ is the world's most advanced impact protection material, absorbing and dissipating impact force and stopping that force from passing into your device. By integrating FlexShock™ into the design of the Evo Tactical XT, we can offer extreme impact protection from drops of 4m/ 13ft."

    I still want to see the Defender in Steel Berry, but it is still not available. If the Defender is fine without the built in screen protector (and replaced with a separate one), I would be happy to give it a try. If the power/volume button alignment is off like many reviews say, that would be a no go. The shoddy built in screen protector isn't a dealbreaker for me, as I always remove the built in protectors for my Defenders.

    I put a defender case on my N7 this week. So far no issues with case or screen protector except the keyboard sensitivity is slightly off. But I think that will improve as I adjust to it.

    Do you actually own the Tactical? Please post pix if you do. For all the people saying that it's a good alternative to the Defender, I can't find any review videos or blog posts about it that include photos of the case on someone's phone. I'm seriously considering the case, but I'd like to read some more reviews first. I'm actually going to try (again!) to exchange my phone this afternoon and if Verizon has the Tactical in store I'll probably pick it up.

    My defender screen protector started to peal on the left side. I just pulled it off. I have a reported glass screen protector note from VZW.

    I love Otterbox cases. But, their screen protectors have always been bad.
