Pros: Pretty good case, seems to have adequate protection for corners/back/top/bottom. The rubbery texture (a premium silicon if you will) provides a fantastic grip. Inexpensive
Cons: The case is ~1 mm thick at the top, and that is enough to make the LED Indicator hard to see when the device is laying on a table in front of you. The sides of the case are rather flimsy.
Other thoughts: The rubbery case does make the device a little more difficult to slide in and out of your pocket. The case does ship with a screen protector. I would prefer to not have the Ottobox logo on the back, but I suppose I can live with it. The LED Indicator hole doesn't line up exactly with the LED, I'm not sure if that is something that will stretch out a little over time. I DID NOT have the issue with the device being constantly dim because of the case. According to friends, sound quality has not changed by the use of the case.
I would recommend this case if you're looking for something inexpensive and protective. If you have the funds to spend and are looking for more protection, I would look for a hard case.
The case feels great when on the phone, doesn't add any girth or awkward feeling to the phone overall. The texture is also great, and it feels very durable. It's easy enough to install, as well. The only complaint that I have is that the case feels slightly small, like it's stretched a bit too much over the phone; the top doesn't quite fit over the sensor light or the speaker, and the sides don't fit snugly, leaving a metal gap, and letting the rubber button covers slide away from the buttons beneath, meaning that they occasionally miss the volume rocker or side keys when pressed.
Overall, though, it's a great case. I would recommend it highly.
Access to the phone's buttons is simplified as the case has moldings that allow your fingers to easily find them without looking. As for the actual protection, I've dropped my phone a couple of times in hard surfaces. The case absorbed most of the shock with absolutely zero damage to the phone.
If you're looking for sturdy protection, get a rigid case. If you need a balance between protection and size, definitely go with this one.
Pros: Made of quality rubber and enough coverage for the right areas of the phone
Cons: Would have been nice if it included a screen protector
I'd seen them like hotcakes for iphones and decided to get one for the blackberry i have since i was tired of the hard cases going every which way if the phone was accidentally dropped.
I've noticed since i got the OB cover i've dropped it less from it slipping out of my hand. Plus unlike the hard cases which can be a pain to take on and off its very easy to work.
Easy to wipe off if anything gets on it.
Great investment for your mobile phone.
