But a cautionary tale -- I came on Amazon and purchased a case from a third party seller - "cellphonegeeks" out of Idaho but I think they operate under many different profiles - and was extremely pleased to find that I could pay less than half of what retail stores and OtterBox itself charges for the cases. What a deal, I thought. Wrong. I received an obviously counterfeit product that was undeniably fake and of such poor quality. I have posted images comparing the fraud to the authentic product I ended up purchasing from a big box retailer. Luckily I was able to have a refund of the product and I'm now living happily with a real OtterBox. My suggestion is to buy straight from Amazon itself or wait for the item to go on sale at one of the major retailers. I purchased mine from Radio Shack for about five dollars less than MSRP. It's worth it to pay the real price!
The Otterbox Defender is the only cell phone case that my family and I use. We've had it for the 4S, 5, 5C, 5S and soon to be, several of the 6's.
The Defender is the best cell phone case I have ever had. It really works! It does its job and protects your phone exactly as described in the product description. I have dropped my phone countless times. Once I even dropped it from about 6 feet high on to concrete and nothing at all happened to my phone! Of course the hard plastic of the case broke. That's what it's designed to do though. The best way I can describe it is by comparing it to a bicycle helmet. Helmets are designed to absorb the force from an impact and disperse it away from your head and brain. The important stuff. So if you get into an accident, chances are your helmet will break. Well the same thing applies with the Otterbox. It absorbs the force of an impact and directs it away from the important stuff, the phone! Twice now I've had a major drop and have had the Defender do what it's supposed to do. I had to buy replacements and even though they aren't cheap that's far cheaper than buying a new phone!
One thing I do not like about the Otterbox Defender is the plastic screen cover. Honestly, the first thing I do when I get a new case is pop out that plastic piece and buy a good screen protector to replace it. I tried using it with the 4S and I hated it! It was way too loose and I had to press down too hard on the letters to get them to respond. So now I just pop out the plastic and toss. I'm sure it helps with water protection and dust protection but I don't really have a problem with that.
Another thing that at first was getting the hang of taking the case off the phone. Some cases are easier than others but some of them seem just impossible to get open! Hard enough in fact that I've had to get a screwdriver to try to make it easier. Like I said, I think that eventually you do get the hang of it because I haven't been having this problem lately.
The last small complaint I have about the Defender is in regards to the soft plastic outer shell. After a while, it has a tendency to stretch out and become loose. Especially at the bottom where the charging port is. Maybe this is because that part of the case is being stretched out over and over again because of charging? All I know is it's happened to all of my cases as well as my kids cases.
Bottom line, despite a few issues, the Defender is still my go to cell phone case. I would recommend it to a friend and in fact have on many occasions.
