Product Description

Color: black | Product Packaging: Frustration-Free Packaging

The Defender Series case provides heavy duty protection against drops, dust and damage without taking away from the usability of your phone's features. The Defender Series case offers triple-layer protection and is built from a high-impact polycarbonate shell, durable silicone slipcover and a built-in screen protector, making it one of the toughest cases on the market. Why else do you think we called it the Defender Series?

I chose the Republic Wireless Moto G and wanted a case for protection. There are many out there which do little if anything should your phone get launched, (it will). Case fit is perfect. At first I puzzled a bit on how to fit the case on the phone, no real instructions. The fit is tight and the case must be popped apart to be installed, I was concerned I'd damage. Just give a little twist, push, it will separate, you'll get it. Absolute precision casting. A reported rainbow effect can be seen when screen is not illuminated. This is nothing more than a clear cover touching another clear smooth surface (refraction I think), a common phenomenon and certainly has zero operational effect, e.g. it disappears when screen illuminates. (All cases should have a screen cover, shouldn't they?) The carry clip case is tough top-notch composite and has a positive detent snap-in for the primary case to fit in. It is made to pop out one side and not the other, smart setup. Some may feel the snap-in is too tight. Rest assured, it is snug for a good reason and the reason why this case is called the DEFENDER. The spring clip/belt clip is strong and fits a 2" strap and has a hooked over shape, therefore it stays in place. The clip rotates 360º, very handy, positions are detented, nice touch. For example, I often wear heavy nylon 2" suspenders. I clip the case on the strap and it does not slide unless I move it. I may lay on the ground, swing a sledge hammer, hop on and off equipment, and not worry about the phone popping out. I often wear under coveralls, perfect. When driving the car I slip it down and away from the shoulder harness, no problem no hassle and always safe, (not flopping about the car).Read more ›

Exactly as pictured, easy to assemble, and provides great protection. Although it adds more bulk to the phone, I would recommend this one over the OtterBox Commuter because of the built in screen protector.

Yes, it adds bulk, yes, it's a monster, but anyone who's used this product line knows it'll take care of the job.

I got it as a gift for a friend, and have tested it out myself and like the solid feel. It's definitely expensive, especially for such an entry level phone, but when the person using it is involved in outdoor construction work where who knows what will happen, this definitely lowers the chances of having to replace the phone right away. (For the average user, a hybrid case under $10 would probably do just as well unless they tend to drop the phone more than they should.)

I bought this case having never had an OtterBox case before. The second I put this case on my phone, I knew it would be able to withstand heavy impact. The material of the grey skin, the hard white shell, and the screen protector are of higher quality than other cheaper cases. I highly recommend this case to anyone that is fearful of breaking/cracking their phone.

Case protects against most mishaps with a solid three layers of protection. Nice rubbery grip keeps Moto G secured to your hand. Only flaw is the screen protector. It has a noticeable rainbow effect when viewing screen at an angle. Also the screen needs to be constantly wiped to keep it free from smudges from finger oils.

Just got this today. Did a little...OK a lot...of research on a case for my Moto G before landing on this one. It's better than I could have imagined.

Solid construction. Looks great. Holds the phone perfectly. Doesn't hinder use at all.

My one concern was that it was going to be bulky, and while it is bulkier than the cheap-o case I had on it, it's not too thick. Fits great in my pocket!

I was a little skeptical at first in purchasing an Otterbox through a 3rd party retailer (but still fulfilled by Amazon) since I remember reading dozens of horror stories of counterfeit Otterboxes being sold from 3rd party distributors and honestly, I spent a very long time going back and forth between Amazon and the official Otterbox website--trying to decide where to make my purchase because, I did not want to become victim of a scam (even with Amazon's wonderful return policy). As it turns out, Amazon, of course, always offers the lowest price, so I went ahead and made the purchase November 2014 (so I've definitely had the the case for a few months now).

Verdict? I am 100% satisfied with the product and am extremely pleased to have made the purchase. I cannot imagine even going a single day without this case on my phone. Since the purchase, I have dropped the phone half a dozen times (I am not exaggerating about this) and I know without a doubt, had the phone not been in the case each time, it would have been obliterated.

Yes it's a little bulky but so what? For me, it's worked wonderfully. I have never been one to stick my phone in my pocket (even though I have found myself doing this now, even with this case, just when walking short distances--it's BIG). Some people may argue that (even if buying the case on Amazon) the case itself costs almost 1/2 the price of the phone. Yes, this is true, but I'd much rather know 100% my phone is not going to crack or break.

Wouldn't you rather have peace of mind? I know I would. I don't even think about the price anymore--considering the number of times I have dropped the phone or walked out in the rain/snow. The product has already completely paid for itself, x2--and still going strong.
