The case is EXCELLENT. I have absolutely no complaints about the case. Protection is excellent and the clear screen cover works extremely well. The holster is a different story. I have broken 2 holsters in 2 months. Otterbox will replace the hoslter under warranty, but you will have to find a pocket big enough for the Note 2 while you wait for it to arive. The weak spot on the holster is around the hinge pin for the belt clip. If you snag this holster on something like a seatbelt or shoulder strap, the belt clip will break instead of just falling off. Hopefully Otterbox will fix this.
