The construction is solid. The hard-shell case clips together perfectly, and the rubber silicon cover that goes around the hard plastic fits like a glove. Be warned, this case is not easy to assemble and disassemble. This case will probably annoy someone who wants to change out cases on the fly. However, I really enjoy this about the case because it feels solid and seamless. I don't have to worry about it coming apart for any reason, or the silicon from slipping off from around the hard-shell. Then again, I'm not one of those people who change cases to go out to the bar/club. The feel is solid, and I do not worry about my $600 phone breaking from everyday drops. It feels like I could throw it at a wall and it would be just fine (though I will not testing this!). The case nearly doubles the depth of your phone, but consider what it's protecting.
I've read that people experience problems with other Otterbox Defender series because the cover over the 30pin charging port will not stay closed. I have not had any problems with any port covers not staying closed as they should. I was worried about the screen cover taking away from the ease of the touch screen, but I cannot tell a difference. Before buying, I was also worried about the silicon being really sticky in my pocket, but it surprisingly slides with ease in/out of pockets; I cannot put it on my dash and expect it to stay in place like the cover on my last phone. Despite others commenting on the Defender series for the iPhones, the hole near the headphone jack is not off center. The hole is for the noise cancelling mic and not the headphone jack! Simply lift the headphone jack cover and plug in your headphones. Furthermore, all the buttons covered on the case feel and function great. Finally, this case will not conflict with your camera because it is designed for the 4S.
Overall, I would give this case 4.8 out of 5, only because the case is difficult to assemble and disassemble. This case is solid, functional, and beautiful. I find myself flipping it over on my desk just so I can admire and show off the camo pattern.
The case is very sturdy and well made. I can text easily through the protective screen, and my home key and dim key operate with no problem, despite the case's thickness. I feel that if I dropped it, the phone would be undamaged. The camo pattern is pretty cool and exactly what I wanted. I'm pleased with the fit and finish which maintained even after the rather complex steps it takes to fit it on the phone. The holster/holder is a heavier plastic than I thought, and of surprisingly good quality. Those are the good parts.
The bad part is that the earphone jack and volume buttons don't line up. This is supposed to be for an iPhone 4S ... are the buttons slightly different on a 4?
Right now I'm debating as to whether I want to keep it. As I said, it's very sturdy and well made. Plus it's the only cover I've found that will allow me to charge it on just about anything because of the generous size of the plug area. But since I'm happy with the phone and won't be able to upgrade for at least another year, I am looking at something for the long haul, and with the buttons/plug being "off," I'm not sure that I will keep it.
So if you have a 4S, avoid this one and check to see if maybe another seller has a *true* 4S cover. If you have a 4, this will probably work perfectly. Understand that if the buttons had lined up, I would have given it a 5 star rating, wait time notwithstanding.
