Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 OtterBox Defender Review:
The Galaxy Tab 7 OtterBox Defender Case provides the same high-level, multi-layer protection that you would expect from any other OtterBox product. Â First, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 is cushioned by a soft microfiber lining to protect the back of the tablet from scratches.
Second, the front of the case features an integrated screen-protector to guard against scratches, smudges, and other damage.
Third, a hard, polycarbonate layer adds structural support and additional shock protection. Â Then, a soft yet durable shock-absorbing silicon layer encloses the entire case except for the screen. Â Together, the soft silicon and hard polycarbonate layers provide significant drop and shock protection, protecting the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 from drops several feet high.
To add even more protection, the Galaxy Tab 7 OtterBox Defender Case comes with a removable hard-plastic screen protector that doubles as a viewing stand. Â When placed over the screen, this additional layer protects against scratches, and even puncture damage from sharp objects.
When removed and used as a viewing stand, the tablet can be placed in either a vertical or horizontal viewing orientation.
However, although the Galaxy Tab 7 OtterBox Defender case does provide very high quality drop protection, the case is heavy, bulky, and difficult to install. Also, the viewing stand is very stiff and requires a lot of force to open and set up.
If extra bulk and weight are not an issue, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 OtterBox Defender Case is an excellent choice to protect your tablet from drops, scratches, and just about any other hazard that could cause damage. Â The only thing that the OtterBox Defender does not protect against is water.
