Otter Box Commuter for Galaxy S8 Review James Wright

Summary: Otter Box Commuter for Galaxy S8 provides excellent 'on-the-go' protection for your smarphone!


On the go protection!

The Otter Box Commuter is not a new product from this company but nonetheless it is one that is very popular and offers a gamut of benefits to users of smartphones. This time, it’s been created for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and comes in a variety of colours to suit your style and personality. Boasting dual protection which includes a synthetic rubber slipcover and polycarbonate shell, these two production techniques keep your Galaxy S8 protected from the outside world. More so, drops, bumps and knocks.

What makes the Commuter a little different to its competitors is that it offers port covers in order to prevent dirt or dust from contaminating the ports. Once you clip your Galaxy S8 into the Commuter which takes a few seconds, the protection has already started. I do like how the Commuter only adds a slight bulk to your phone and the design gives the user additional grip which makes holding the Galaxy S8 a little easier. Furthermore, you have full access to all the features of the Galaxy and the Commuter is compatible with screen protectors as well.

The port covers are easy to open and don’t feel cheap or flimsy either. Having used the Commuter before on my old Galaxy S5 which I dropped more times then I can remember, it protected my old phone through its entire life. Given that, the new Commuter for the Samsung Galaxy S8 will definitely be on par so I’m thankful for the chance to review this product because this case is almost doomsday proof.

Final Thought?

The Commuter for Galaxy s8 is another exceptional product from Otter Box that offers great protection for your smartphone. Sure, it may not be attractive as some of their other cases but the Commuter offers excellent protection on the go and is a case that I cannot fault in any shape or form.

Highly Recommended!


  • Slim design: sleek profile easily slips into pockets and purses
  • Dual-layer: soft inner and hard outer layers absorb and deflect impacts
  • Port covers: block out dust, dirt and pocket lint
