I originally purchased one of the RIM branded soft rubber cases at retail price (around 10 or 12 dollars I believe) at a local cellular store. This case wasn't bad but I felt didn't offer the level of protection I wanted. For the price, it also didn't come with a clear screen protector which I had to pay extra for.
Being the type of person that isn't satisfied until it's right, I started doing some research online. I came across the Otterbox product line on Amazon and saw that there were three cases made for the 9700. The first one I looked at was the Commuter. It was nice, no doubt about that but I didn't like the two piece design. The Defender on the other hand was definitely rugged, but overkill for my needs. I work in an office, not a construction site. Having ruled out both Commuter and Defender cases, the last I looked at was this one, the Impact.
From the description and photos, it looked like just the product I wanted. It wasn't too bulky but had cushioning in all the right places. It also came with clear screen protector. The price was also very reasonable compared to its more expensive counterparts. I ordered one and Amazon had it shipped to me in a couple of days.
Upon receiving the case, I looked at it closely and it's certainly well made. The quality is by far superior to the more expensive RIM branded case, plus offered better protection. The Impact case also fit the 9700 extremely well. The speaker and microphone holes were cut perfectly, as well as the access ports for the 3.5mm headphone jack and charging socket.Read more ›
The bad part about this phone is that it is a magnet for dust, lint, dog hair and anything else that might be in your pocket or surface where you place the phone. I have to clean it once a day with a moist cloth so it won't look too bad.
I may not buy this product again because of how dirty it gets. I may try a hard shell case next time.
2. Great material and built quality
3. Comes w/ screen protection film
4. Does not interfere with typing
5. Covers most of the phone while keep all connectors and camera accessible
6. Great price
CONs: 1. Add some bulk to the phone (I actually prefer it because I have big hands)
2. Attracts dust and lint
I don't use this cover anymore. I purchase a similar one that had a hard plastic cover on top of the silicon so it makes a lot easier to take out from pocket, and also it much more stylish. Another thing i don't like about silicon is that when the phone is on vibrate, you can't hear the BBBUUUZZZZZ sound on the table or etc....
- Good protection
- Attracts lots of dust and lint
- A bit bulky
- Reduces noise from vibration
- Material quality could have been better ( For the price they charge)
Overall, I'm kind of disappointed by Otterbox. The other one I bought is much better, and it was cheaper too.
