So yea, I got both cases. I just had the Caseology Legion case and Samsung Rugged case to start but I decided to get the Defender right after I got my phone because while the rugged case feels good it just didn't feel like it would have good drop protection due to the sides of the case being pretty low and the lip not as pronounced as the Defender.

The reviews on Amazon for the Note 8 rugged case had some bad reviews about screens shattering from falls.

Which would you trust for protection more? The Defender to me feels a lot more protective
