Review: OtterBox Commuter Case for Samsung Note 2

sam4-galaxy-note-2-20 Since I have had my Note 2 the main concern that I have had is the potential of dropping it or getting a few knocks as I use it a lot to enter data for work, calls, ChatON, and SMS, so I am taking it out of my pocket and in doing so heighten the possibility of that Oops drop.

I am personally a big believer in using cases, and can’t believe that consumers invest almost a $1000 on their telco device yet are happy to just use no case or that cheap $10 clip on case or Gel Case that offers no to little actual protection then come crying that they have now damaged their device, I saw this a lot when I worked at Vodafone’s Service Centre here in Perth, they only bought an OtterBox case after the fact, better late than never was the attitude.

For this review I have decided to do a video just to show you a more of a hands on approach, there are also close up photo’s below.
