iPhone 4 / 4S Reflex Series Case
This past weekend I was on a motorcycle run. While going down the highway ( going faster than I will say) my phone worked itself out of my pocket! Later on I used the find my iPhone app and went back to see if it was shattered or not. To my surprise it was all in one piece!!! No scratches, cracks, pieces missing, nothing! This is a great product!!

I've only had two Otter Box cases in total. The firs was the Defender series which was ok for me at the time of having it. Had it for a while, but for whatever reason I broke two or three belt clips that came with it. the belt clip could have been made better I feel. On top of that the silicon case would become loose over time. Went through two of those. Over all the phone is slim when not in a case. When placing it in the defender case it became a large brick "Not cool." After some tim I came across the reflex series which was/is a great fit for my use of the phone. The case is designed very well with its easy to slip off (when pressure is applied) covers as well as being slim it self. Unlike the defender series you DO NOT have to take off the whole to charge the phone. The bottom half of the case slides off so you can dock it for whatever reason. This is my second case of the reflex series. The first case I guess I dropped it and didn't notice that there was a nice thin crack on the corner of the case. Over time the crack became worse, but that was due to me not paying attention and it being snagged on things when I took it out of my pocket. Had the case for a year before the crack showed up. The replacement process went smooth. I received my case in the mail and here I am writing a review about three weeks or so later...

Intelligent Design Over Heavy Armor
I cannot speak highly enough of this case. I am an ex-Apple Retail employee that's been an iPhone user since 2007. I've had access to and tested many cases and to me nothing is more impressive than when design and function come together to form a unique case.
Instead of bulking up my iPhone with silicone rubber, a hard plastic layer, and thick screen cover, I can actually hold my iPhone 4s without thinking it's as thick as a brick. The transulcent plastic lets me show off my white iPhone in all its glory while the rubber bumpers(I'll get to those soon) add an unique racing stripes concept.
But the real brilliance is the concave design and shock absorption this case provides. I have dropped this case on pavement, tile, wood, granite, metal, etc... It will just bounce along and not looking any worse for wear. I am known for showing friends my case then casually throwing it onto the floor to prove my point.
The ONLY thing to be aware of is this case does leave the front open, so any face-plants by your phone onto a vertical object could potentially break the screen. The case does scratch the gloss of the phone somewhat, but I believe technology was meant to be used, not kept in a box...Well maybe in an OtterBox at least. ;-)

Broke my phone
I am naturally a klutzy person, I drop my phone all the time. I heard very. Good things about otter box and so I gave it a shot! Had this case about 2 months and the back of my phone is shattered. I am so disappointed... I am sure there is a better case out there...
