Samsung USA COO stated that preorders for the S8 and S8+ are 30% higher than they were for the S7 & S7E.

A Korean analyst that follows their mobile division has advised that there's concerns that the S8 sales will take away from, "the 6.4" Note 8 sales later in the year ".

I'd recommend a Unicorn Beetle by SUPCASE in lieu of a Defender by Otterbox. I had one on my iPhone & liked it way better. And despite the fact that it's a fraction of the cost it held up really well & it isn't one of those products where you can say "you get what you pay for" for costing cheap.

This is it on Amazon:

For S8:

For S8 Plus:

For some reason the one for S8 Plus is slightly cheaper than the S8. At the time I bought mine though for the S8 Plus mine was free & had to only pay for shipping.

There's also a great review about it by FlossyCarter on YouTube here:

@Mazeroni As I don't have any other to compare it to, I'd say the controller is good. At first I thought the pointer was off center, then I got a message saying you can re-center it anytime just by long pressing the home button.. lol
I can only use the VR for maybe 8-10 minutes at a time because it's making me so dizzy I feel like throwing up. I guess it's something you have to get used to? Again, this is the first time I've ever owned a VR so everything's new to me

No it doesn't. The Defender doesn't have one either anymore.

I will stick with thr defender then. At least with the defender I get a case specific screen protector sold separately.

With the SUPCASE I have nothing except for off the shelf screen protectors.

You should get it at a Canadian online retailer instead of Otterbox directly & avoid the US exchange & hefty shipping costs. Walmart & Best Buy Canada both have it in stock online & shipping is even free! But if you need the Alpha Glass then Ca.MobileFun.com has both case & glass if you want to get it all in one place. Although I should mention when it comes to shipping costs I'd get the glass from MobileFun & it'll ship for like $4.50 then the case from WM or BB since shipping is free. If you get both from MobileFun both ship out for $28!
