Absolutely Sick iPhone Protection,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: OtterBox Defender Series Case for iPhone 5 (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Not for iPhone 5C) Retail Packaging - Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Look... there are iPhone cases out there that work fine, and there are others that blow your freakin mind. The Otter Box Defender is just one of those cases -- it gives you full mind-blowing protection.
It's like having a Humvee outer shell for your iPhone -- no lie. Not only do you have this crazy seemingly impenetrable beast of a case, but then you get this rubber outer seal that pulls double duty AND you get a built-in screen protector that saves the screen from getting scratched. Yeah it adds weight to your sleek new slim profile iPhone 5, but I'd much rather have a well protected investment than some scratched up, dinged to death, glass chipped mess. The Defender isn't even the the highest grade Otter Box makes but believe me it's crazy tough. I feel like I can literally drop this from a freeway overpass and it be perfectly fine. My only small complaint is this case is insanely difficult to open I had to watch a video on Youtube to figure it out. If it's that hard getting in, I had no fear of something happening to it once it was fully encased.
Best investment ever.

great, well-written review. you're inspiring me to overlook another user's complaint about the case intruding upon the edges of the touchscreen and give the Defender a try. thanks.

Plaintiger, thanks for the compliment - I'll send you a a picture if you want, the casing does not intrude with the edges of the touch screen at all.

For a phone as beautiful, elegant and delicate as the iPhone 5, this otterbox is one of the best cases out there. Thanks for the review, I bought the case and feel my investment is safe.
