    Picked up the Pelican Protector case today at an AT&T store.
    I love the feel, fit and finish of the case, it has one major problem though.
    The case flat out covers up two of the speaker holes on the bottom of the Note 7.
    Sucks because I really love this case.
    I'll be returning it the next time I'm by that AT&T store. A $40.00 case should not have these problems.
    Here's a couple pictures.

    You might want to check Pelican on Amazon.

    When I was looking at cases there a couple of manufacturers had issues like this and they were correcting them.

    Also it is much cheaper on Amazon than at a carrier store usually.

    I'm going to call Pelican tomorrow when they are open and see what they say. I know that the Speck Candyshell cases have this same problem but at least they have a little channel on the inside of the case. With this Pelican 2 of the speaker holes are completely covered up.

    I think the Speck cases done that way were by design.

    I stand corrected, there is a little channel inside of this case for the extra two speaker holes.
    Had to get a magnifying glass out just to see it. Definitely looks like a rigged up deal and I don't like it.

    The Note 7 speaker is nothing to write home about even when all 10 holes are wide open.

    That sounds like the Speck case and they explained the reason for that.

    Pelican makes nice cases, though wouldn't be better if these companies made cases that fully covered the speaker and had a channel to directed the sound up, toward you?

    Here's a couple pictures showing that little indent that covers up the 2 speaker holes.

    Pelicans if you drop them the case will likely be damaged. All sorts of drop test show it. Mobile Reviews Eh has done test on them.

    Get the tech21 Tactical Evo XT. It's their defender version. Hopefully Otterbox Defender is out soon.
