First, the defender technically provides more protection than the commuter and also comes with a handy holster with a clip. However, the defender is bulky and the port covers do not stay as well as the model for the 3GS. Also, I am not a fan of the defender because of the screen protector it comes with. Eventually, particles of dust or grit will work their way into your case and be sandwiched between the screen and the hard plastic film. Then, friction from your finger will scratch the screen up pretty bad (this happened to me). To make matters worse, I put a Zagg shield on it and it basically fused with the screen protector on the defender. I needed to pry the phone off the case and, while doing so, lifted the glass of the phone, creating permanant air pockets in my screen. Not a good scenario at all. The anti-glar films sold at the apple store, however, work fine because they have a smoother, less sticky surface. I would not reccomend this case at all, though, without these screen protectors because without a screen protector, air bubbles will form and distort your view and scratches on the screen will occur. But, if you work construction or another potentially hazardous job, this case with the anti-glare screen protectors may be a better choice then the Commuter series of cases.
The Commuter, on the other hand, offers a balance between versitility and protection. With this case, I can use my Zagg shield and is not peeled up by the case like many do. Also, I love the soft shell on the inside and the hard shell outside. The soft inner allows the port and button covers to be attached to the case and function propperly. This also helps absorb shock. The hard shell allows the phone to slide in and out of pockets very easily, even out of tighter jeans. In addition, it has a much thinner profile than the defender but still provides adequate protection. The ports are still protected from water and it can take a tumble. I've dropped my 4S about 4 times with this case on it, on hard surfaces from pretty significant hieghts (5 feet or so on some) and the case barely even shows it let alon the phone wrapped up inside. Also, by flipping the phone face down, the exposed inner rubber case prevents it from slipping if you needed it to stay put, for instance, in a car. For the average person, the commuter is the superior choice.
However, both cases with the lighter colored silicon soft shells, like white and grey, get dirty easily. They even get stained from dye in jeans. Not a huge deal to me, but might be to some. Overall, these are the two best cases on the market for the iPhone and believe me, I have researched and read up on them all. You must simply decide what your needs are for a case and make your decision.
The defender series is just too bulky, it takes away from the sleek slim look of the iPhone. My defender series actually broke a few months after purchasing from normal wear and tear, even though that series is supposed to be the best protective.
The first generation of the commuter series was a very good case. It was slimmer, while still being protective, but it didn't fit as well as I would like it to.
Now to the Otterbox APL4 Commuter Series Hybrid Case. It just topped the other otter box cases by far. The case fits perfectly and looks great. It show the slim and sleek look of the iPhone 4 but still protecting it. With the hard plastic outer case it doesn't stick when you try to put it in your pocket or pull it out. With this case you can drop it on pavement without breaking (none from experience). Therefore, I highly suggest iPhone users to buy this case over any others. Don't waste your money on the other cases like I did and go with this one.
So I initially had decided to go with the Defender over the Commuter, as it seemed to offer the most amount of protection. As much as I disliked the look and bulk of this case in the store, and was a bit envious of my husband who was getting the sleeker, more stylish, Commuter, I held true to the function over fashion rule and purchased the Defender. Since I do not have a good track record when it comes to dropping my phone, I genuinely felt that the Defender was the smarter purchase as is does offer a significant amount more protection.
The Defender has a built in screen protector and the entire phone is encased with impact resistant rubber. I felt that this case would handle more dropping and even buy me a little more time should my son spill a drink near my phone. The only problem is, is that all of this additional protection added a significant amount of bulk. Now, initially, I thought so what?.. it is still small. But no, the rubberized outside makes it not only bulky, but hard to slide in and out of things like side pockets on my bag, my jean's pocket, etc. It would slide part of the way in and then stick a bit. I felt this left the phone more vulnerable to dropping since I was often not able to put it away properly, quickly.
The bulk also made it difficult for me to hold properly. Maybe if I were a big guy with big guy hands, the added bulk wouldn't matter. But, I'm not, I'm a girl with tiny girl hands and I often felt like I didn't have a good hold on the phone while trying to use it. As much as I didn't want the bulk to be an issue, it was. Then, there is that pesky cover for the charging port. This thing would NOT stay closed without a significant amount of effort. It was always flapping open, making it even more difficult to use seamlessly.
Overall, I started to feel that the added protection was actually putting my phone more at risk for a fall since I was not able to put it way quickly, didn't feel comfortable holding it, and the charging port was almost always exposed. So, I order the Commuter online*.
While the Commuter does not offer as much protection, it fits in my hand much better, the charging port opens and closes without problem and it slides in and out of my bag pockets, jean pockets, etc. much easier. I feel that I am much less likely to drop the phone with this case. As an added bonus, the earpiece is much louder with this case. I was unaware just how much the Defender muffled the volume of the phone. Now, in its defense, I was unaware... I had no idea how bad the sound quality was until I switched- so it was still decent. Now that I have the Commuter, the difference is outstanding.
Overall, if you are a man or an unfortunate woman with man hands, the added bulk may not be a big deal with the Defender, especially if you use the belt clip and don't mind the charging port cover flapping around. However, if you are the average iPhone user, who needs a case that offers great protection and is still functional, the Commuter might be the way to go. I really feel that the added protection with the Defender actually made it less functional for me.
*Now, about online vs. in store. Initially, we purchased one Defender and one Commuter in store. They both fit our phones like gloves and we had no problems with gaps. When I decided to switch to the Commuter for myself, I initially ordered on through Amazon.com. I paid a few bucks extra for the "retail" packaging, in hopes that would keep me from getting a knock-off. No dice. The case arrived in different packaging than what my husband's store bought Commuter came in and it didn't fit my phone. There were gaps in the seal and the one whole side was loose. I immediately drove to the store and bought one and it fits fantastic. Personally, I would suggest buying in store for these... and I am a loyal Amazon purchaser... as a working mom, online shopping is key for me, but this time, a trip to the store and a few extra bucks was totally worth it.
