I love the Commuter case for my Samsung Note. It's clean-looking and attractive, and is built solidly without adding too much bulk to the phone.
I opted for a Commuter over a Defender case because most of the outer surface is hard plastic, so goes into and out of my pocket well. I would have gotten the Defender if it wasn't mostly a rubber exterior.
It can't really be helped due to design limitations, but I dropped the phone and it landed on the S-Pen corner and the thin plastic in that corner snapped out completely. Otterbox replaced it promptly under warranty. Couldn't be happier, unless they make a hard-case Defender so I can put it in my pocket.
Pros: High quality, Durable, attractive appearance, minimal bulk added to phone, slides into and out of pockets easily

Slim and stylish OtterBox Commuter Series Samsung Galaxy Note 3 case
 

How well does the Commuter Series for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 protect the screen from drops onto hard surfaces when phone lands screen side down?

1. How does the Commuter Series protect the screen from being smashed?
2. Should I also purchase, for example, the very thin but strong "Verizon Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Samsung Galaxy Note 3" and replace the Commuter Series' screen protector with the tempered glass?
3. Would the tempered glass be compatible with your Commuter product?
Note: the Defender would be too bulky for my pocket.
1. Dropping the phone screen-down, the only major protection is the "lift" the rim of the case gives the phone, keeping it a few mm off whatever it is laid on. The front-facing rubber edges are rigid and don't compress when pressed. If it's dropped on an uneven surface, the screen is coated in Corning Gorilla Glass I believe, so it is very sturdy.
2. No matter what my screen is made of or coated with, I always like that extra layer of protection (also because if I go to sell/trade it, it'll be in pristine condition). That being said, I've never used the Verizon Tempered Glass protector, or the one that came with the Otterbox. I've only used Zagg shields and I swear by 'em.
3. There's enough "give" under the case edge to install screen protectors. They're very thin. Since no hard plastic wraps completely to the front and past the bezel, it shouldn't be an issue.
