You do know there's a dedicated Cases and Accessories section, right? And yes there's already multiple reviews on that case there.

I love it, it's definitely fitting the bulky protective stereotype but it has a great grip and demands confidence in it's protection ability

I have the "black" one. Its definitely more gray. It is my go to case. I have one for my s9 too. I dropped mine onto pavement twice in one day and the phone is still perfect. The case has some damage but that's expected. You can't go wrong with this one or any by UAG. Those are awesome too.

I love it, phone looks amazing with the silver Rugged case, I wasn't sure at first when I saw it online but now it's on it really does look nice.

I just ordered this case for my husband's S9+ (which is only $17 instead of $40 for the N9). Got it in silver. Very stylish. Hoping the top and bottom offer some buffer for the screen.

Yeah my wife has the silver one on her S9 and that's one reason I got it for the Note. There is more 'raisivity' on this case than her S9 which does protrude nicely for screen protection.

I like how it has a kickstand integrated into it. The case itself is medium size in terms of bulk. It's little on the thicker side but understanding but that's because it's meant to be a rugged case and at the same time not too bulky like many other rugged case. Overall I think it's a great case to have as one of the options, I do use it a lot during mornings having coffee and catching up with some YouTube tech videos or some sports videos.

I have always used spigen. Got this case 2 days ago most attractive and solid feeling case. Highly recommend

Spigen is my "go to" case too and for good reason...a fall from a car hood going 55 mph. Not a scratch on it! I got this one for my husband's "going out phone case". He needs a more heavy duty case for work.

The rugged case I mention above 'seems' to interfere with Samsung wireless charging pad.
I also am hitting 10% per hour when actively using and screen on plus AOD with notifications, edge panel, s-pen - which is why I'm digging the settings.

If _anyone_ knows where and how to see battery status of stylus - I really need that - keep hitting 10-20% and needing to reinsert to charge. Plus, no indication when it is back to 90%+. An LED status would be nice?

I have the case. Not a bad case. I wish it was a bit more bulky, especially on the sides where it's needed most for protection.

I still prefer the Defender case though. Defender makes the phone easier to use and more grippy and seems more evenly balanced. The rugged case just doesn't feel as balanced in my hand.

I wanna try that Armadillo Tech case sometime. I had one for the Note 5 when it was called Artech21 and it was a nice case for the money. The Note 8 one also has a built in kickstand as well.

I cashed in 10K Samsung pay reward points for the black rugged case. Seems like a good case from the reviews, just waiting cause it's on backorder now.
