Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding case Bought my wife a Samsung Galaxy 4 Mini and knew I needed a case. Looked at a lot of different ones, and there are some nice ones out there, but after research and seeing the Otter in person, I knew this would be the one I should purchase. The phone store didn't have the one for the Mini, so I ordered it directly from Otter. Great service, fast delivery, quality product. This one is worth buying, you won't go wrong. The wife loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Samsung Galaxy S 4 mini Otter Box Defender Case I haven't dropped my phone yet so I can't tell if the impact protection is up to the five star rating but it does withstand the everyday abuse that you would expect from a protective case other than it's not water proof. This case seems to me that it would absorb a significant impact if it were to be dropped from a normal chest high level onto a cement or asphalt floor without any damage. It is designed well. It is easy to open and close if you need to access the phone itself. The buttons work very well through the case. the screen protector is easily cleanable with any soft cotton tee shirt and the condensation of your own breath. The only down side is I wish there were more colors available for my phone. I don't know of any company out there that is making a better protective case for cell phones than Otter Box. I highly recommend this product to anyone who needs to protect their investment as a cell phone or i pod or whatever. This company has it! Thank You Otter Box!! November 5, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works great except for the Belt Clip Design. Have BROKE 2 of them in 3 months October 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great protection and warranty service. This case has the best protection of all cases we have tried. It also not very big for the amount of protection it gives. In addition, there is a great guarantee if your case breaks. Love otter box. October 26, 2014

Q: 
There is a noticeable bowing outward on the screen protector "film" of about 1/16in that makes it nearly impossible to accurately swipe. Is this normal? If so, is there anyway to compensate for the lack of swipe capability? I've heard great things about Otter cases and am a little disappointed if this is indeed the "norm." Thanks!

A: 
I had the same problem when I first got my case. After having it for a few weeks now, I've broken the case in, and that bowing isn't really there any more. If you continue to text (or whatever else) the way you want to be able to, you will break the case in to your own personalized needs. Also, I've found keeping my nails short makes texting using the swipe method easiest. For now, if you just press harder when you do it, everything should work out=)

A: 
its the integrated screen protector. Try the Commuter version which comes with a stick on film instead of the hard plastic screen cover (works perfectly). The Commuter case is also smaller, which for me is the reason I chose the S4 mini.

This is normal and you may need to take the clear cover off the case and use a stick on protector.

Howdy Chris! I think you may have a dud, sorry to say. I've had my case about a month, and haven't had any trouble swiping, or noticed a bulging of the screen protector. Manufacturing error? I'd email Otter box and ask them to replace it. Hope this helped, cheers!

I'm not sure, ChrisS, but you might have the same problem that my wife encountered when she first put her S4 Mini into the Defender case. She, too, complained that the Defender's screen protector was bowing and/or that there was a "gap" between the protector and the Mini's touchscreen. I hadn't had any such problem, so I tried my hand at remounting her Mini in the Defender. What we discovered is that she wasn't getting the side latching points on the Defender completely closed. The rubbery outer case will slip cleanly over the inner hard skeleton case even if it isn't closed tightly. Therefore, you might try this: remount your S4 mini in the hard inner skeleton case by sliding the case's front and back together at the TOP first, then seating it with a firm squeeze at the BOTTOM, and then simultaneously giving the RIGHT AND LEFT EDGES of the case a very hard squeeze. You should feel the Defender's hard case snap/lock into a nice, gapless/bowless fit around the S4 Mini. If you don't, then turn the phone-and-case face down on a hard surface and (using your thumbs) put a good bit of pressure on the right and left edges (where the latching points are) until it snaps/locks together. Then, slip on the grippy/rubbery outer case and enjoy your new phone! This has worked for both of us with our S4 Mini-and-OtterBox-Defender combos. I hope it works for you!
