The Otterbox for Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is my first choice for a cover for my tablet. I bought the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 instead of the Tab 3 because at this time, Otterbox only makes Defender case for the Tab 2. I had planned on this because I was pleased with the performance of Otterbox on other electronics I own. I am equally as pleased with The Otterbox Defender for Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. It is like a sturdy second skin for your Tab 2. The pieces of the Otterbox Defender snap into place over your tablet and you are ready to go. It encases the back and sides of the tablet, leaving the screen open for touch browsing.

It provides a snug fit over the back and sides of the tablet, leaving the screen free for touch browsing. There is a sturdy cover that snaps over the front of the Tab 2 to cover the screen when not in use. This cover is black like the rest of the Otterbox, so you can't see the screen when it is in place. This cover doubles as a tablet stand. There are openings for most of the ports and buttons on the Tab 2. Most importantly, there is an opening for the port for charging the Tab 2. The one negative is that there is no opening for the small USB port designed for a USB memory card. I called Otterbox about this and they said they decided not to put an opening there in order to ensure the strength and integrity of the cover. Their reasoning is that if you are going to add a USB card, you will be doing it on rare occasions where you can take that part of the cover off and replace it. So far, I have not used enough memory to require getting a USB card, but when I do, I will just open up the cover and install it and then snap it back into place. Because of the lack of an opening for this USB card, I gave the Design an 8 instead of a 10.
