The last 6 cases for my phones have been the Defender series, for SO many reasons. I test and review many cases and other tech/devices, and I have to say hands down that these cases are the TOUGHEST, most DURABLE, and STILL the most comfortable cases I've ever used. I literally recommend them to everyone vigorously. There are MANY other cases that APPEAR or CLAIM to work just the same, with the dual layer protection and all, but my Defender cases are never taken off or even damaged, as the construction is so thought out. I could go on, but you get the picture. Built in screen protection, padding inside inner hard shell, hard shell CLIPS AND LOCKS together, then the outer shock protection layer even covers it all AND clips around the previous layers clips, ENSURING that it will NEVER fall out of the case. On top of that, it comes with a very protective hard shell holster with a strong but compact clip (even rotates to wear it any way on belt, etc.), but it also can hold the phone so that it protects the entire front of the screen OR the back, where the camera or the screen is now ULTIMATELY protected. I will be ano Ottorbox customer for life. HOPE THIS HELPS!
