Overall, for an inexpensive but well made case, this is a good one.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it doesn't protect the flat control keys at the bottom of the screen (the call, BB menu, back, and power buttons), and they seem easy to scratch. And when you swipe upward on the D-pad touch controller, you tend to swipe dirt up toward the bottom edge of the screen protector where it builds up over time. While that could be better, it's really no big deal for me.
I'm very happy with this case and would buy it again.
Probably the best bang for the buck as far as cases goes for blackberry 8500 and 9300 series. I have this for a tmobile bb 9300 and fits perfectly. The buttons cover over the buttons are easy to press. No trouble hearing while on the phone. Top and bottom very tight and secure, will not peel off the case easily. Not as big as it seems in the pictures. Fits comfortably in the pocket.
The sides are not very tight and flap easily, however the top and bottom are very tight and secure. The sides are ridged upa little more than i like and hinders pressing the keys on the sides. Not a big deal, just something you get used to. As with most silicon cases, it gets quite dirty when you have it in your pocket full of lint. Although it is easier than other silicon cases to slip into your pocket, its still not that easy. However, it might be great for women who may decide to put it in their purses.
When looking for a cover, I like the heavy rubberized ones as they seem to protect better when I drop my phone. For whatever reason, the rare cases where I do drop the phone, it's always over some hard surface... like concrete! I find the heavy rubber cases protect better when that happens.
The problem I've had with rubber cases in the past is that they are huge and bulky, so they won't fit in my pocket. Or they fit in my pocket, but are so "rubbery" (if that's a word), that I can't get them out of my pocket easily (like when the phone is ringing and I am holding something in my hand!
This is my first Otterbox purchase, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I know other people that use Otterbox, so I decided to give it a try. The price was great and I love Amazon Prime shipping! Anyway, the cover fit perfectly and, after about a month of use, I love the case. It's rubber is heavy enough to protect the phone, but the texture isn't so bad that it sticks in my pocket.
If you have similar needs, I highly recommend this cover!
I knew it would be a fight to get him to use this, at least I thought it would!! To my surprise he loved it!!! It looks very man-like rugged and REALLY protects the phone well. He is a race car crew chief and drops the phone a dozen times a week at least! Since he has had this on the phone he has only dropped it once, it really has a non-slip grip to it. Also, the edges come up a little over the phone and this protects the screen.
He thought it might be hard to get in and out of his pocket, but it is not at all and it hasn't slipped out of his pocket once, which it used to do.
If you have a person who is hard on a phone they NEED this!!! Many of his friends have asked about this and he says "go to Amazon, it's called an OtterBox"!!!
