iPhone 5 Armor Series Case
I have been waiting forever for this case to be released. I finally have one and I love it. Otter box has designed another durable case! If your looking for something not to make your phone too bulky this definitely isn't the case for you. The case is just a little bit bigger than the defender which has been on my phone every since I have purchased my iPhone 5. The phone seems as if it could withstand anything that might happen to the phone. I have tried a life proof box for my device which was awful! I am a firefighter/EMT and needed something to protect me from all the weather elements, and I'm glad to say I have found it! The phone fits nicely into the case and has a snug fit. With the life proof box I had a awful Mirror image of a pesky air bubble on my phone. You defiantly don't have that with this case. I was amazingly surprised with the sound quality of the armor series case, sounds just like it did in my defender case! In call volume was my main concern with this case because the life proof was awful with in in call volume. I'm happy to say I can hear just fine and the other party can hear me as we'll without any problems. If I had to pick one thing I don't like about the case it would be it has no belt clip. Just a lanyard you can attach to the case which I don't use. If a belt clip were to come out for this case I'd be a very happy owner!! Thanks again otter box for another great product. Well worth the money.

Best protection for life in the outdoors
I bought this case when it first came out. The first one had a defect but, otterbox replaced it right away with no hassles! I have dropped my phone down a flight of concrete stairs, in the ocean, my 1 year old niece threw it off the second story deck (still don't know how she got ahold of it) and taken a pic of my son underwater in the pool. Not only is my phone still in perfect condition but, the case is too!! Love it!!

I am one of the hardest one I know on tools, close, and work truck. This case take it, sand and dirt from craw spaces and undergrounds , water which is all around me as I am a Plumber, saw dust, hitting, dropping from ladders. All this and it still protects one of my most important tools. I use my phone to take pictures for materials, plane of actions, and sometimes just prove of jobs in hard to get places. I get that must important next job lead calls. It does its job with out flaws, keeping my phone safe and scratchless. So much I would argue if someone would say something negative about the otter box cover.

Not as good as it looks
The case is sturdy, I'll give you that, but I haven't and wasn't going to test the case against water due to the reviews. I have been an OtterBox customer since day one of owning an iPhone many many years ago. I have always liked their products and would recommend them ... Until now. This case is a major disappointment to me. Especially when OtterBox won't even stand-by it with replacing the phone should the case fail it "waterproof" design. The speakerphone quality is great, but sound quality out of the handset speaker is horrible. I have great hearing, but even I need the volume up all the way and can still only barely hear the other person. OtterBox, you have let me down! Back to the Defender case I go!
