This $49.95 case comes in a variety of colors and prints; I was sent Damson Berry, which is a combo of berry (deep pinkish-purple) and pink. I think it’s a fresh and feminine Note 4 Case without being too obnoxiously cute.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Case Symmetry Case Features

  • Dual-material construction makes Symmetry Series case for Galaxy Note 4 one of the slimmest, most protective cases in its class
  • Sleek and slim Galaxy Note 4 case is a cinch to install
  • Make this stylish Galaxy Note 4 case your canvas for design when you choose from a full spectrum of wraparound colors and graphics
  • Streamlined design delivers tough protection from drops and shock

The Symmetry case is rigid and strong, and even though it looks like it has a two-piece design (similar to the OtterBox Commuter I recently reviewed), it’s a single, easy to install or remove shell.

There are perfectly positioned cutouts for the 3.5mm headphone jack, microphone, and sensor on the top, the charging port, microphones, and S-Pen on the bottom, as well as the camera and speaker on the back. On the sides there are rubber covers over the power and volume buttons.

It’s extremely easy to slip your device into this Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Case, and once inside your phablet will protected on all four corners as well as its back; this should take care of most drops.

There’s even a bit of a bumper effect around the screen to provide face-down protection. There is no screen protector included with the case, though, so it would make sense to invest in one of OtterBox’s Alpha Glass screen protectors. I highly recommend them, and I like that you can get a clear glass or a privacy screen version.

Shiny new devices are fun to get, but they are only getting more and more expensive. Protecting your mobile device from preventable accidents should be a priority for every owner, and the Otterbox Symmetry case is a great way to accomplish this.

The OtterBox Symmetry for Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Case retails for $49.95, and it is available directly from the manufacturer and from other retailers.

I've had a fascination with all types of gadgets and gizmos since I was a child, beginning with the toy robot that my grandmother gave my brother - which I promptly "relieved him of" in 1973. I'm a self-professed gadget magpie. I can't tell you how everything works, but I'm known world-wide for using a product until I have a full understanding of what it does, what its limitations are, and if it excels in any given area — or not.
