Confident it will protect your phone
Posted by: ten96lt from: Chicago, IL on
I bought the OtterBox and picked it up in-store the day after I received my iPhone since I heard the back can scratch easily and didn't want to wait for the case to be shipped. I do have to say this case does look like it can take a licking. The phone fits snug into the case and doesn't feel like it would fall out if dropped. While I do not feel like testing the limits of abuse this case can take, it has held up very well to everyday use and removed my worry about scratching the phone when i put it down somewhere or any other everyday hazard.
Only issue seems to be the screen protector. I was able to apply it well if I do say so myself, but it left the cloudy look on the bottom edge of the phone that won't go away even with a credit card or using their edger. The good news though is the case covers the edge, so I don't see it when using it, but it may be a nuisance for some to know it's there. I do have the feeling I will be replacing the shield sooner rather than later so you may want to invest in shield you're confident in now rather than use theirs. Overall, definitely worth the investment if you want to keep your phone in good shape, especially when it comes time to resell for your new upgrade in the future.

Top case for iPhone 5 right now!
Posted by: senorbeene from: on
I was a little skeptical buying this case because it said for "new iPhone" not iPhone 5 but I was surprise it fit perfectly. It comes with free screen protector. The only thing I don't like about the case it is a little slick meaning there is not much grip but this is fine since I feel like the case is very protective. I would be fine if I drop it. Definitely the best case for iPhone 5 until the life proof comes out.

Great Case bad Screen Protector
Posted by: dcanderson85 from: Grapevine, TX on
As expected the OtterBox case itself is amazing. Slim figure, durable,good price. But the screen protector was a waste of plastic. Who ever designed it was not thinking clearly. They put a sticker to instal it easier but when the screen protector was on the phone the sticker didn't peel off and left the sticky reside. For that price I expect the whole package. I will be sticking with PowerSupportUSA for all my screen protector needs.

I just purchased this case and I am happy with it. I like the white and grey since my phone is white, and the screen protector isn't bad. Buttons all work, sound is good, easy to get to charger and earphone ports.

Had to get replaced
Posted by: ihwcsnipe27 from: on
I love the case, the second time i got it. The first time i bought this case 3 months ago the rubber in the top right corner bubbled up and started to peel. I brought it in to best buy and they exchanged it, no questions asked. I love my second one and it has save my iphone 5 more than 10 times.

Pretty yet pain to set up
Posted by: MomOfThreeYoungKids from: Atlanta, GA on
I bought this because it was a nice color and because it cost less than the Defender series ($10 less). It also appeared to be sleeker and I didn't think the Defender series looked sleek enough. I go ahead and buy this... I see there is a screen protector kit. It's like a sticker. You wipe down the iPhone with an antistatic cloth. You place the "sticker protector" on the phone. Now, this was the tricky part. It was hard to put it on perfectly. Kept trying again and again. The kit also comes with a tiny key fob type card (without the fob part) so you can push out air bubbles. Then, you take the top cover off of the screen cover. Then, you put the plastic case over the iPhone with the screen protector on it. When this was done, the screen protector was curled out of the bottom of the rubber cover. Tried putting this back in, but realized if it was this difficult to set up, it might get worse over time. I was disappointed. I returned this within the hour and paid $10 more to get the Defender series in blush/cream. (NOTE: I did find it on ebay for $27, so there are ways to get this cheaper. I just needed this now.)
Also, I didn't like how the rubber openings around the cover edge weren't closing flush.
Maybe this would be fine without the protective screen cover. What the Defender case had that this didn't was the screen protector was actually PART of the case...
And, the Defender series case for the iPhone 5 was actually nicer than I expected it to be and sleeker than portrayed in photos.

I'm picky and I like it !
Posted by: tbro from: on
This case has a great fit and medium to high level of protection , it's not as bulky as the defender series and fits well in my front pocket , I don't wear skinny jeans... Lol. There's a lot of cases out there and this phone is gorgeous so cover it with this attractive one. I didn't bother with the added screen protector it seems to rigid, I always buy zagg since its hard to scratch.

Dropped my purse which had my phone in it and the screen shattered, only dropped it from a height of about 4ft. Had the phone for less then a week. The screen protector did keep all shards together.

Great less bulky protective case
Posted by: PsychoBear from: St. Louis, MO on
Both me and my fiance purchased the Iphone 5 and as soon as we did we purchased the commuter case, mine black hers pink and white not that color really matters. Both of us have taken our phone out and put them back in to clean the inside of the case and have had no problem with breaking them, its pretty simple if the way your trying to get the case off isn't working don't force it and it wont break aka don't be stupid. Next I have no idea what this guy is talking about "The Apple lightning adapter will not plug in to the bottom of the phone because it cannot reach through the opening. Seems like a pretty big design flaw. Since most people will not be willing to remove a case like this every day, this basically makes the case unusable." obviously he cant find the flap at the bottom of the phone that is there so you can plug your phone in.... I don't know people amaze me. Moving on, I have dropped the phone twice but not from very high up nor on a very hard surface but still the phone nor the case was damaged. If you are in a very physical job, known for being hard on phones, or maybe even a little clumsy you know happens to all of us this case isn't for you look into the Defender. But if your work is the opposite or if your just really cautious of your phone this case this work just fine for you.

Strong but Gets Dirty Quick!
Posted by: MotherOBoys from: CA on
I love the strong pink part of this case. It should have come with grey rubber. Instead, the rubber part is white and it has discolored within days of my purchasing it. I've tried everything to clean it including magic eraser to no avail. It leached the dye right off of my jeans. So now it is a dingy grey with white in the creases.
