Rated 5 out of 5 by best defender yet !!! I don't know why this case is receiving bad reviews . it's the best one yet ! gone is the annoying outer layer that tended to slip and stretch out over time . it's been replaced with a more durable material with a perfect, snug fit . slimmer than previous models, but still offers excellent protection . I have never really liked the screen protectors that came built in, so I removed this one as well . you can easily add one of your own - I prefer to leave my screen " naked ", and I don't worry about it at all due to this case . the only issue, which is minor, is that the cutout on back for the apple logo is slightly off center, but this is just a minor cosmetic issue . this case is a huge upgrade from previous models !

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aewsome Protection! I have used the Defender series cases for years on my phones and iPad. It's nice have peace of mind and know that your device is totally protected. Thank you Otter Box! November 14, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by It's the little things... I bought the defender for 5C at a local AT&T store this morning. I have had great luck with Otterbox products and have owned Commuter and Defender cases for the iPhone 3G, 4, 5, and now 5C. The protection for the phone is great with this case. I have no complaints there. The rubber around the case feels solid, very similar to the cover on the iPhone 5 Defender. It's definitely not soft like the rubber on the iPhone 4 Defender. My only complaint is purely superficial. The rear cut out that shows the Apple logo is usually centered around the logo. On the 5C Defender, it is terribly off-centered. The bottom of the Apple logo is nearly touching the bottom edge of the cut out and it seems to be cut too far left. Again, I realize this is purely superficial and I'm not returning the case or anything like that. I'm just saying, maybe pay a little closer attention to the design of the product before releasing it for mass production. It's all about the details. My husband's Defender for iPhone 5 has a rear cut out that is perfectly centered. Anyway, I'm sure this product will serve it's purpose. Defenders are great for protection and it doesn't add too much bulk either. I'm not a fan of really thin phones. I need something more to hold on to. But I would say wait a while before purchasing this Defender or try it on the phone before you leave the store. If the logo issue doesn't bother you at all, get it now. If not, wait for Otterbox to address the issue. October 19, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Worst Defender Case Ever I would love to give a glowing review, really I would. But I really dislike this case, and regret every penny I spent on it. I've had other Defender cases I LOVED for my past iPhones, but the one for the iPhone 5C is awful. DO NOT buy it. Within a month my outer silicone had stretched out and no longer fits my case well. But worse than that, the screen protector does not protect the screen. There is a large trapezoid shaped opening at the top where the receiver/front microphone are and another round one where the home button is, and they both let in a HUGE amount of debris UNDER the screen protector so it does not protect the screen. My phone screen is constantly dirty within a day or two after I clean it. It's awful, especially given that I use the app that allows me to keep all my loyalty cards on my phone. I have to completely remove the case and clean the phone screen and the case screen protector front and back at least once a week which means the silicone is getting more and more stretched...and my case is only about 6 months old. I regret buying this case!!! Don't do it! August 21, 2014

A: 
No, there is just enough difference in the form factor size of the iPhone 5c® that it will not fit in any of the OtterBox® cases for iPhone® 5 or iPhone 5s.
