One of the reasons I purchased the OtterBox phone protector for my iPhone was for the price. It was significantly less expensive than another brand that I had purchased in the past, so I thought I would give it a try. Once I fitted the OtterBox to my phone, I quickly discovered why it is less expensive. To begin with, even though the case protects the phone on all sides, the case is not waterproof. Although I haven't yet dropped my phone, the quality of the case appears as though it would withstand a decent amount of shock. The biggest disappointment for me is in the functional fit of the case with my phone. The case fits tightly around my phone, to be sure, however, pushing the power button on the top end of the iPhone through the case is rather difficult, as is flipping the mute switch on the side of the phone. The latter is due to the switch being recessed by the thickness of the case. One other annoyance is the rubber flap that covers the power port on the bottom edge of the phone. I appreciate that the port is somewhat protected, but the rubber flap lacks the ability to snap it into place or to hinge it out of the way when you want to insert the power plug. Instead, it kind of hangs there so you have to hold it out of the way with your finger to insert the power cord. None of these objections are significant drawbacks, just annoyances. Would I buy the same item again. Probably not. I would most likely wait for the case I owned previously to go on sale and buy that one again.
