    Works well if you never remove the case.

    This case is not compatible with the dock I have, so it must be removed each night. The plastic is not flexible which caused it to break into two pieces across the back, with only a gentle flex to slip it on to the rubber insert.

    Nice case, keeps my phone safe & clean thanks to the port covers. Only draw back is the rubber is so stiff it's difficult to press the sleep/power button.

    I really like the protective capability of Otter Box cases but I charge my phone on an iHome radio, which does not accomodate the case. It is very difficult to take the phone out of the case at night and put it back on in the morning.

    The porous white sides got so dirty and when I went to take it off for cleaning, the back cracked in half. Only had it about a month

    Great protection

    Otter box is always great at protecting the phones. Wish this protected Apple symbol from getting scratched in the back.

    Bulky but protective

    The case makes the small iPhone SE pretty bulky but its a very snug fit and seems to offer a lot of protection. The phone also doesn't seem to sit flush on its back, which causes a very loud noise when on vibrate. Kinda annoying when trying to be discrete at work.

    Otterbox is a Good Case

    I've had multiple Otterbox cases and all of them have been a perfect fit and offer great protection. This case has a smooth back so it slides easily in and out of your pocket. If you don't need the extra protection of the Defender case, this is a good one to have.

    My family always buys otterboxes. Recently, we strayed and bought "designer" cases. We went back to otterboxes due to my husband breaking two phones in a week by dropping from a low height. Should never have got the cheaper brands.

    Loved this case but it broke

    I love the commuter style OtterBox case. I like being able to have a slim lightweight phone and still be protected. I loved the feel of this case but with so much plastic it easily slips out of your hand. How my case actually broke was taking it off. It's a little clunky and I cracked the back of it. My only recommendation is they would make the outside plastic thicker so it's more durable.

    Well Worth It

    It was almost $40 at the store, but the man readily price adjusted it to $19.99 after I used the in-store iPad to check the price on Amazon. The case works great and serves it's purpose. I drop my phone a lot, and it falls out of my chest pocket when I bend over. The phone is fine. The flat part of the case backing on the bottom left has a small crack after I accidentally dropped it on my driveway, but it's not a huge deal, because you can't see it unless you really look. The only other small complaint I have is that the rubber or silicon soft case seems slightly bigger than it should be, because it buldges out a little but where the volume buttons are located.

    Surprisingly tough for size

    This case is tough even though it just seems like a regular case - unlike other OtterBox cases I've seen. I've dropped my new phone a couple of times on concrete and it hasn't cracked my screen, surprisingly. I workout 6 days a week and wear an armband. In order to use the armband, the case must be removed. Since it's two pieces, it's a bit of a pain to put it back on every day. but evidently not so much that I want to buy another case.

    Confident it will protect your phone

    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 don't 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.
