A:AnswerThe Defender series provides a higher level of protection than the Commuter series. If fact, the Defender series provides better protection than just about any other case you can find. However, this extra protection comes at a cost; the Defender series adds a notable amount of bulk to the phone, whereas the Commuter series is lower-profile and will be easier to put in and take out of your pocket, purse, etc.
The Defender series is really geared toward those who work in construction or heavy industry. For the majority of people (those working in office, commercial, or light industry environments), the Commuter will be the more practical choice.
A:AnswerIt is definitely NOT smooth. The case has quite a bit of texture to it and has a pleasing tactile feel to it. I have used a few other Otterbox Defender cases in the past and this model is the most textured by far. Hope this helps.
