Rated 5 out of 5 by Love This Case To be honest with you of all the otterbox cases I have owned before this by far is the best one.... Its something about the silicone that does not stretch as much and does not get dirty. I believe its because this silicone has more of a harder feel than the one I had previously before. It really does protect my phone. I'm so in love with this case I would recommend this to anyone July 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Okay The case is good, but the only flaw that I have with it is that debris still gets between the front layer of the case and the phone. There should not be a whole for the button on the phone. It should be completely sealed off. The rest of the case performs exactly as I expected, but I am very disappointed that I am constantly having to take the case off to clean between the phone and the case, it actually affects the way my phone performs at times. I will certainly make sure that the next Otter Box that I buy has a fully enclosed front and back. July 11, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by A Little Disappointed All in all, the phone case does its job. It is durable and protective. Downside, dirt particles get under the screen protector, and the grey outer cover peels. I have had my case replaced as a result of this, and it is doing it again. If you're tough on your phone, this case will protect it! July 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Effective Protective Case excellent fit to phone, the case is great, covers the entire phone (not leaving the apple symbol exposed like some of the other cases). can be a little tough to get into the belt clip but that is due to the phone being so square (not my choice of phone, it was provided by work), all in all the case is excellent and helps distinguish my phone from everyone else's work phones on this site.
