    Rugged Galaxy Note7 | Defender Series | OtterBox

    I don't know if I totally dig it. it looks kind of thin protection wise to past defenders especially for $60 is what the stores will sell them for too and Amazon will charge that too when it first comes out.

    I might order a Supcase this week just in case I don't like what it looks like in person, then order a Otterbox knock off when those come out since they're a lot cheaper but still will be more protection than the Unicorn Beetle.

    I would hope after a few weeks Amazon knocks the price down on it so I can walk into best buy and get a price match.

    Do you all plan on ripping out the built in screen protector on it and going naked even though it will be hard to find screen protectors due to the curved screen?

    These newer Defender's are built much nicer than Defender's of the past. This one has the full rubber liner inside of the back shell like the one for the S7 does. I've had Defenders for every phone in the past several years and these latest ones are the best so far.

    The screen protectors are still trash though. I mean how is it the generic Defender knock offs have a better screen protector and Supcase also is better and fits more flush with the screen yet the Otterbox doesn't and it cost a lot.

    I always ripped out the screen protectors and used a tempered glass on the phones.

    Blues, you going to break down and order the Note 7?

    I love the otterbox defender cases, I get them for all of my note smartphones and the holster is a bonus IMHO

    Yea or just buy it in stores later this month. I'm still considering waiting for an unlocked version or see what the V20 offers. I won't buy the phone until I have a good case in my hands to protect it.

    whats the point of paying $60 for a case that keeps dust out when the phone is dustproof

    You can go with lifeproof, they offer total water protection program if bought through Verizon corporate. This covers water damage. The regular note 7 won't cover water damage under warranty.

    I don't believe Lifeproof ever made a case for the Note series.

    Interesting. They make it even for the Droid maxx 2 but not note series? I mean the note 5 must have sold many more times that of the maxx 2

    Lots of problems with Lifeproof for the S7 series. The Defender gets dirt underneath the screen protector.

    Otterbox defender is great for the drop protection, and the newer cases are better than the ones from a couple years ago.

    The problem i had w the s7 edge one is the screen cover sucked, and taking it off made the phone rattle inside the case lol.

    You're right. And it's been asked on their FB page. They continue to have no Note plans.

    I have the Defender for the S7 Edge and I have to say it's the best one they have ever made in my opinion. It's the first defender that I haven't ripped out the screen protector, it fits so good, there is no gap and this one doesn't get dust underneath like past models. It's a little harder to press the buttons on the curve part of the screen however.

    If I get the Note I would consider getting the Defender although with the Note having Gorilla Glass 5 a screen protector may not be necessary.

    It doesn't look like they have a flap cover for the S pen which I think would be useful, if you've ever dropped a Note the S pen always pops out.

    And it's an ugly case to boot.

    Based on their photos, the Note 7 Defender doesn't look too bulky, in fact IMO it doesn't look thick enough which has me a bit concerned.

    I buy the defender for every phone I have. I'm a mechanic so it's a must have for me. Need the protection and the belt holster. Not safe to carry a phone in my pocket with my job. Just hoping it gets released before the phone. Otherwise I'll have to buy a cheap knock off until it's released.

    I went ahead and ordered a Supcase since my phone will probably be here before Otterbox releases the Defender because no way in hell I will go naked with this. The Supcase doesn't provide the best of drop protection but it's better than nothing until the Defender is out in a couple weeks.

    I'm trying to decide between the the supcase and armorbox. They're the same price and look very similar, but I've never owned either brand before.
