3.5 out of 5
This case really is strong and offers, as many other reviewers have said, probably the best protection there is for the iPhone 4S. It's size is not an issue for me since my primary objective is to protect the phone. I love the safety orange color and, as others have written, I have also received MANY compliments for the case, it definitely stands out!!!
The reason I'm giving it 3.5 stars is because: 1. on the Otter website and here on Amazon the pictures showed the REALTREE camouflage design in the back in a really nice brownish, orange color which looked amazing and of course seemed very appropriate considering the safety orange/black palette used on the rest of the case. Unfortunately, the case I received came with a dull, greenish tone & high contrast print which really let me down. I work with photography and graphic design so I really noticed that. Some may say that website pictures are for "illustration purposes only", but in this case it made me have a huge expectation for the case that didn't come through. And 2. the case won't prevent your iPhone from becoming a lint/dust magnet and you will have to take it off to clean it every once in a while. I'm currently cleaning mine once or twice a week. Taking the case off and back on can be a pain in the butt and now mine doesn't close as tightly as it did the first couple of times.
So, that's my review of the case, have been using it for 3 weeks now and I'm not planing on changing it until I find something better.
