    I think the Symmetry is a better case. The Commuter is just too slippery on the sides where the hard back shell overlaps the interior silicone. I have both and have lost grip on the Commuter several times just trying to pick it up. Sticking with the Symmetry for now.
    For me the Commuter works well. It's not at all slippery and complete value for money as it also includes a screen protector at a lower price than the Symmetry case.

    My phone, in it's Symmetry case, fell 4+ ft and landed flat faced on my tile floor. (Slid off something I'd set it on on my bar counter). Screen wasn't touched, or it at least had no resulting damage. Sure the Defender increases that gap, but you're talking a good amount of force to close even the gap on the Symmetry. I've never been a fan of Defender cases because I'm one of those crazy people that likes to keep their phone inside their pocket. lol Plus the Symmetry is easy to handle hence less likely to drop it to begin with.
    I think the case being discussed here is the Commuter one and not the Defender which is terribly bulky though protective.

    The red looks good. I just ordered (30min ago) the blue/grey blue Otterbox Commuter before their sale expired.

    Down the road, I might get the red, because it looks sharp.

    It's not gold, it's the silver platinum, my overhead light makes it look gold.

    I ordered this color because it looked good on the Otterbox website on the Silver S7E.

    Not sure I like it, after using it less than 24hrs. I thought the plastic was going to be more steel blue. It is really a baby blue color.

    Borderline a girly color.

    Plus the hard plastic sides are mighty slippery. I'm back in the Symmetry for now.

    I hate that giant OTTERBOX sign on the back of their phones.

    I'm on the fence on whether to buy a more robust case or stick with the OEM leather case. The leather case is slick, looks good and has better grip than any of the robust plastic and rubber cases. It just feels odd to not have a big protective case. I've always used protective cases on my phones, usually slimarmor cases.

    Just have to giggle. For years everyone is complaining to Samsung to make better quality looking phones. So they finally make these gorgeous phones and we still stick them in ugly plastic cases. Go figure.

    does seem that phones are fashion statements more than devices to be used and not seen. Discussions of visible antenna lines as if they were panty lines, material appearances over effectiveness-

    True. If we were talking about basically utilitarian, the old Samsung plastric construction was best. Well actually no, Nokia's plastic polycarbonates were best (the first Lumias).

    I normally don't use a case. My cases are for when I go to the gym, working out in the yard, or out for a run.

    I have an Xtremeguard protector on device to protect it a bit and show off the beauty.
