When buying a phone as expensive as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, protecting your investment is always a good idea. Unless you have endless amounts of money to throw at $1,000 phones then, by all means, do your thing.
In my time with my Note 8 review unit, I’ve been using one of two cases sent to me for review, and now it’s time to share my thoughts on the first and switch over to the second. First up is the GPEL EverPure Max.
The EverPure Max fits perfectly on the Note 8, but it does make pressing the buttons on the side of the device a bit difficult at first. This subsides after using the case for a bit, however. On the plus, the button coverings are easily distinguishable, making it easy to tell where you’re pressing in low-light situations.
The case has openings in the bottom for access to the headphone jack, USB-C charging port, speaker, and S Pen. My only beef here is the size of the S Pen opening, which makes taking the S Pen out of its holder a real pain in the butt. Luckily, I have tiny fingers, but if you don’t, you may want to steer clear of this case altogether. Otherwise, there’s nothing negative to say about the EverPure Max.
Where to buy
It runs $25 on the GPEL website, but you can get it much cheaper on Amazon. It’s $12.99 over there, and at that price, I highly suggest you pick one up. The Verizon Note 8 I’m reviewing retails for a whopping $960 dollars. That means you can protect your device for just over 1% of its value.
You do the math, then decide for yourself if it’s worth it, or not.
