…the tedious hassle of separating (and later joining) the two (2) plastic halves of this case in order to access the microSD card. Now that I have a 32GB microSD card installed, this should not be an issue. It remains an issue if one needs to fully remove the G-Tab from the case, such as mounting it onto a vehicle adapter. Once the case is together, the microSD card slot is covered by the internal plastic case and the surrounding silicon shell. The power and volume buttons are covered as well, but have pre-formed silicon buttons to cover them for full functionality.

This Otterbox case provides the ultimate in protection for the G-Tab just short of being water-tight. The camera lens and flash on the rear of the G-Tab are still uncovered, but are surrounded by raised silicon and plastic. The front camera and light sensor are covered by the included screen protector (see NOTE: below). There are attached silicon plugs for the 30-pin cable and 3.5mm audio cable ports, but the two speakers and microphone holes are left uncovered for sound transmission.

NOTE: If you already have a nice screen protector on your G-Tab and you purchase the Otterbox Defender Model # SAM2-GTAB7-20-E4OTR, you have to either remove your separate screen protector or detach the screen protector that comes glued to this case. It seems that if you buy this case from a cell phone provider, you’ll get the case without a screen protector for you to purchase separately ($$)… I had an awesome Zagg invisibleSHIELD already installed on my G-Tab when I tried to use the screen protector that came with this case (I didn’t want to toss either of them) but once combined together, numerous air bubbles and a severe loss of touch screen sensitivity resulted. The Zagg protector is a pain in the neck to install, but leaves the front camera and light sensor exposed to actual lighting. The Otterbox protector (if you obtain the proper model) comes glued to the case, but covers the two front lenses from real lighting. I may just get another Zagg and just remove the included one from this case…

In all, a very good case to protect your G-Tab from bumps/impacts, scratches, fingerprints, and dust. The additional plastic shield/stand is a great help, as well. I would have given this case five stars if it wasn’t for the joining & separating of the internal plastic halves, but I’d still recommend it to other G-Tab Owners.
