Enhances my phone experience
on June 2, 2011
I've had my Otterbox commuter case for about a month now and have been very happy with the product. It fit perfectly over my HTC Incredible S with the silicone buttons and covers in all the right places.
Here are the positives from my experience with the product so far:
- Gave my phone a little more bulk which actually helps me hold the phone better
- It still fits well in my pocket so it didn't bulk up too much
- The silicone buttons helps improve my button response. I'm less prone to accidentally hitting the volume buttons and power buttons while using the phone. I have the proverbial "fat fingers"
- Dropped the phone once from table height ... and the phone survived!
- The screen protector is smooth and stays on quite well. With damp fingers, the gorilla glass had always created unwanted friction making it hard to swipe properly. I don't have that issue anymore with the protective film.
The negatives so far:
- The cleaning cloth left some lint behind the protective screen when I accidentally touched the sticky side with it. When I tried to clean it off, I got other lint stuck to it. It was a downward spiral. Now I have 5 pieces of lint visibly stuck under an air bubble. I wish there was an easier way to get that film on lint free.
- The silicone grabs all the lint in my pocket. What was once a nice black silicone layer is now dark grey. Maybe my dry skin contributes to it too. In either case, it makes it look old.
Overall, I'm very happy with the product which helped improve my experience with the phone. I'm not sure why others have said the plastic shell is too slick. I found it gave me more friction to hold on to the phone better. In any case, I would certainly buy this product line again.
