OtterBox Defender Series Case for Samsung Galaxy Note 2
It goes without saying that smartphones - the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, in particular - are expensive. Dropping a smartphone, breaking it, and facing buying a new phone off contract that's a very costly way to realize that you should have had a case. If you don't trust your fingers enough to always have a deathgrip on your phone and you know yourself well enough that butterfingers are inevitable, the Otterbox Defender is among the best cases you can buy. It offers three layers of protection in addition to a screen protector. However, this protection comes at a price (besides the charge on your credit card) in the way of bulk. This kind of protection demands the case be chunky.
