      Solid Case, so so Screen Protector

      Though she says she doesn't do it on purpose my wife seems to routinely throw/drop her phone. Needless to say that when looking for a case I searched for something military tested, something that a tank could run over without destroying it. In short, something that is crush proof, waterproof and wife proof. The Otterbox Defender fits the bill. Purchased for a reasonably good price, this case should hold up to all of the rigors of her daily usage. I would give it 5 stars but won't for three reasons. First, it is much to early to properly test it. She needs at least a month's worth of drops and throws to really see if it will hold up. Secondly, she is having problems feeling the iphone's vibration, or hearing the ring through the multiple layers of protection. Annoying but probably worth the protection. Finally, the first version of this case had a faulty screen protector. It did not lie flat against the screen and thus made touch sensitivity really poor. After reading others complaints about this issue we returned/exchanged it for another of the same model. The new one fits much better though is still not perfect. I will eventually just rip it out and buy a specialty screen protector for it but for now, it is functional enough. Ultimately if you need extra protection this is probably the best way to go just be aware you may be doing some extra maintenance on it eventually.

      Does it’s job

      This is the second defender that I have had for this phone. The product does do the job of protecting phones from drops and scratches. However, the 4 out of 5 stars is due to the reasoning behind needing another case for the phone. The rubberized exterior portion of the defender eventually wears away and begins to peel to the equivalence that a severe sunburn peels. (It does take a good deal of wear and tear before this happens. As I had the first case for approximately two years. But, once the peeling begins there is no stopping it from getting much worse). What makes the peeling so frustrating is that it removes large and deep gouges of the protectant rubber from being on the case. Thus, is not only a huge eyesore, but also removes a good deal of protection from the case leaving electronics in a potential precarious situation of “just how long will this continue to keep my electronic safe?” It is overall a fantastic product. But the peeling is a bit of a drawback.

      Great case for my iPhone 6s

      This is a very durable, strong case. Regrettably I have dropped my phone a few times while I have it set on a table and get up to do something, forgetting the headphone is still in, pulling it to the ground. As of yet however I do not see any damage. I don't have any issues with the fingerprint reader, or access to the charger or headphone areas. Ultimately I feel my phone is adequately protected and will hopefully be safe for the life of the phone. The only two negatives I would mention is first, the first case I bought actually had a scratch so I had to return and get another one. Thankfully I was in the store getting the phone activated so I noticed while there. That being said I imagine this was just a rare issue as I have only used otterbox cases on phones for years and never encountered that before. The second issue, I think through either the camera or the speaker slot some dust or something along those lines still gets in the phone. Though not too difficult to get off, I am not desirous of taking it off to wipe of the case. Honestly it's hardly noticeable, but I do not some people who are much more obsessive about small details like that, so I thought I would mention it. Great case overall, I am very satisfied with the purchase. Plus I like the colors!

      Dropped on interstate at 85 MPH

      If I could give 6 starts out of 5 I would. I was in the middle of a motorcycle trip - (Florida to Wyoming and back) and I had my iPhone handlebar mounted as a GPS. The cheap handlebar mount let go (NOT made by Otterbox) when I hit the worlds largest pothole in St. Louis. I was going 85 MPH in the left lane of interstate 70, (which I shouldn't have been doing). In my rearview mirror I could see my iPhone bounce down the highway behind me. It took almost half a mile to work my way to the shoulder and past the two onramps that were inconveniently right there. I jogged back to see my iPhone between the lanes on a white stripe. I waited for a break in traffic then sprinted across the highway - grabbed it - sprinted back. I was amazed to find not a SCRATCH on the phone. Not even the screen was cracked. I don't know if anyone ran it over or how many times it bounced at 85 MPH, but amazingly the phone was totally fine. Thank you Otterbox for an excellent product.

      I had the Otterbox Defender for my iPhone 5 and it worked great. It even protected my phone when I accidentally dropped the encased phone into a deep puddle of water during a rainstorm. It took me about 5 seconds to find the phone and I immediately took it out of the case, blew it off by mouth, drove home, then dried the phone using a hairdryer. The phone still worked. So, even though it doesn't state waterproof, it still protects from water. I think this is a great protector for anyone who regularly drops phones which I have done many times. The only negative is that when clicking it onto the plastic holster, over the years, it eventually wears down the small strip of rubber framing the lock tab in the middle of the side of the case. Still, not enough of a deterrent since I got the Defender again for my iPhone 6S. I gave the old Defender to my wife for her iPhone 5 and will try to take a photo of the wear I mention, and will update this review later.

      Good quality but with less iPhone responsiveness

      I recently purchase this for my iPhone 6. I like the case with clip and it feels a quality product. I also like how the covers for the ports (charging and earphone) and the mute area are properly covered. The buttons such as the volume and power buttons are easy to push and is immediately recognized by the phone What I find challenging, is a gap between the phone's screen and the case's screen protector. Having this gap, required me to put more force when typing on my phone for it to appear on the screen Another issue I have with it is that it is a challenge to open the shortcut panel where the bluetooth, wifi, airplane mode, flashlight, etc. is displayed probably in part due to the gap and at the same time due to the plastic cover design at the bottom part of the screen I would still recommend this case to a friend due to the quality of the product. Searching the web, work around for the issue with the gap between the phone's screen and the case's screen protector is to remove the screen protector. Though I haven't remove it, it is one option to solve the gap issue

        Hi there,

        Thanks for your feedback! We’re glad that the Defender is taking care of your iPhone 6. We are sorry that there is a bit of a gap between the screen protector and the actual iPhone screen. This is not typical and we certainly want to help out!

        We do not recommend removing the screen protector as that could alter the protective qualities of the case and void the warranty. Please give our friendly Otters a call at 1-855-688-7269, and we will be more than happy to get a new warranty replacement lined up as soon as possible!

        Best,

      Like most Defender series cases, this one will add substantial bulk to your phone and that's something I like given the iPhone's incredibly slim design. I've only dropped and broken one phone in my history of owning smartphones and I've had every phone in a Defender since then -- just in case. There is a cover for every port on this phone but that doesn't make it waterproof. Mic, speaker, earpiece and camera lens are still exposed. I would even hesitate to call this splash-proof as it's not designed for that. Overall this is a great case and almost too good. It's difficult to remove your phone should you need to (in my case, when I go running and put it in an armband) but I'm not going to knock it for that as I knew I might have difficulty switching out when I needed to. Also, the screen cover is susceptible to dust when opened. Make sure it is completely cleaned before inserting your phone. There is a thin layer of protection for the Touch ID sensor and it works as if it was not there. Not disappointed my purchase, and Best Buy honored Amazon's online price of $25 in-store. Not too shabby.

      Great phone case

      This phone case does a great job, I purchased it because I am a security guard and my phone has to brave the elements with me. Not only did I need the phone easily accessible but I also needed the case the do a great job protecting it. I'm always out in the weather no matter what it is and there are times that I have to run to get to a call, I can't tell you how many times I had dropped the phone before I had this case because I would have to pull it out of my pocket.. There have been a few times I have dropped it face down in some gravel and cement, and in the snow and this case has protected it perfectly, if it was in my old case it definitely would not of lasted.. The reason I gave it four stars was because of two things.. Sometimes under the piece of rubber that protects the home button things collect and then my fingerprint reader stops working ( a bit irritating) and the second is typing on the screen is a bit difficult until you get used to it. But still definitely worth dealing with those things for everything else you get.. Holder also doubles as a kickstand..
