Rated 3 out of 5 by So-so After reading all the reviews first, I was happy to see I'm not the only one slightly upset with Otterbox about this case. Now, I've not experienced any issues with call quality or people not being able to hear me, which is a step up from the Lifeproof case I previously had...but I have the same issue as everyone else with the little mesh screens falling off after only having the phone for a few days. I am so worried that I am going to puncture the plastic covering the speakers. I wasn't happy with how quickly the phone showed dirt. My pretty pink case has black marks all over the front rubber cover. I chose this case over the Lifeproof because it was all pink. Lifeproof's pink case is only on the front. I also tried to take this case off to attach the lanyard to it, followed the instructions, and now the back plastic piece shows indentations from the quarter I had to use. That was within the first 10 minutes I had the case! The bottom port cover is nice...except when you want to charge your phone. You either have to swing it up so the piece sticks straight up on the phone, or to the side, sticking out past the case. It's really annoying, but not a complete deal breaker. The last issue I had with this case was how hard it is to push the buttons. I suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, which means I don't have a lot of wrist strength and my hands often go numb...making it nearly impossible for me to push the buttons on my phone. I will say after having the case for close to a month, that the bottom button seems to have loosened up some. I am anticipating that the other buttons will do the same in the future. I haven't completely tested the waterproofing capability of this case and definitely won't now with the mesh screen covers missing. I did take my phone to the beach in this case and my phone did get a little wet, with no damage. September 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by It does it's job I bought this because I'm clumsy and wanted make sure my phone was protected, and there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that this case would protect my phone from damage. However, I have had some issues with call quality. The person on the other line can hear themselves echoing, or can barely hear me, so that is a frustration. I usually have to talk on the phone with my headphones that have an inline microphone. The case is also extremely difficult to open, which I guess is a good thing because I know it's securely sealed! :) Also, 2 out of 3 of the mesh coverings over the speakers have fallen off, and I've only had the case for about 3 weeks. I'm not sure if that affects the waterproofing ability, but I plan on contacting Otterbox directly to see if I can get a replacement case. Overall, I like the case, I just wish there was better call quality. September 10, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by calls I had several people say they had a hard time hearing me when I called, said it sound like I was talking into a bucket, or asked if the phone was covered up so. I left voice mails on my home phone and cell and it was inaudible for the most part, other then that the rest of the case was great, but I returned it due to the above mentioned issue, I reverted back to my other Otterbox Symmetry. September 8, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Preserver We always have purchased Otterboxes and recommend them to friends/family. I already had the Preserver series replaced since the metal shielding ear piece peeled off. I was sent the replacement free of charge, but now the replacement is wearing off in the same place. I am not pleased with this expensive purchase but now I am stuck with it. I would not recommend this model until they fix the design. September 7, 2014

I have the preserver cover for my regular s4 and am very disappointed. The sound quality gets so bad sometimes that I have had to hang up, remove the cover and call people back.

I have a Qi charging adapter that fits inside the standard S4 back cover and it works fine with the Preserver. I don't think an ovesized battery/back cover will fit in the case.

Yes it does. The only thing I have found wrong with the case is that when you talk to people the call quality on THEIR end is worse. I get reports from people I talk to that say they can hear their own echo and other such things. Call quality on my end has never been better, It just gets old hearing every conversation start with I CANT HEAR YOU, usually though they can it just sounds weird at first.
