What is the exact weight of the 2 parts of the Otterbox Defender case for the Samsung Note 8?
The otterbox looks very capable of protecting the Note, but can anyone tell us how heavy the 2 components are? and if it causes any strain when holding the device up with one hand?
The weight of the two pieces is pretty minimal. I carry the Note 8.0 with me everywhere, and I mean EVERYWHERE, and it's not a problem. In fact, I think the case actually provides some needed "substance" to the tablet. Before the case, I was afraid I'd drop the darn thing since it was so light and thin. Now when I hold it, I really can hold it. I don't have any trouble holding it with one hand, with or without the stand attached.
If you want to minimize weight, loose the stand. It's not really necessary to protect the screen all the time, and I really don't use it on the go. I prefer to use the stand if I'm storing the tablet in a bag for a long time or if I'm actually using it as a stand.
The two pieces do make the tablet a little heavier, but I think in a good way.
