Some friends and I went on a long hard hike. Afterwards saying good bye's, we were taking our group photos at the cars. Stupidly, I laid my iPhone 4s face down the the rear roof of my CR-V and forgot it was there. I drove on heavily curvy backroads and in some instances at speeds up to 65 mph..... for 23 miles.
Upon arrival at my home, I couldn't find my phone and in a smack on the forehead moment remembered leaving it on the roof of my car, at the hiking site, in sprinkling rain. With the aid or a fast thinking friend and a find your iPhone app, we located the phone! Still operable and sending out a beacon! Upon arrival, I shuddered to look. Laying face up on the side of the road was my fully functioning phone nary a scratch.. Not a ding!
It was protected in a OtterBox Commuter case that has already taken it's share of abuse and guess what? The case has 2 small cracks and some scrapes but still fits! I called OtterBox to share this story and the super nice lady further made my experience delightful! A company committed to full customer service! I'm SOLD! I fully believe the rubberized inner membrane kept the phone from sliding off my roof all those miles. If the Commuter does this well, what's the Defender capable of?

Rated 3 out of 5 by DaveOB1 New Otterboxes compared to Original
I had purchased an Otterbox from the phone store when I originally got my iPhone 4S. It was one piece, all silicone and provided "good friction". I keep the phone in my shirt pocket and other covers were too "slick" and the phone would fall out when I bent over. First I bought an Otterbox Defender thinking it would be the same thing, it wasn't. The sides were the same type of silicone, but the back was smooth. It didn't stay in my pocket nearly as well, and the lens cover gets moisture behind it and it keeps the unit from working as well. I decided to buy the Commuter and it turned out even more slippery with the plastic insets on the side. I suspect that Otterbox changed the design because people probably complained that the Original was too hard to take out of their pocket, which was the feature that I liked! When I upgrade to an iPhone 6, I probably won't buy an Otterbox.

The Otter box cases for the I Phone are very dependable and durable. Have dropped the phone numerous times and the Otter Box case protected it from damage.
