    Great Protective Case

    Overall I think this is a great case for the value you pay. It's protective and gives me pear of mind that the product will protect my device if it were to fall. The only thing I didn't like about it was that over time it will get dirty because of the color. I returned it and opted for the black version.

    Slim. Protects phone from minor abuse

    Wanted something slim that would plug the earphone and lightning holes to keep out lint. This does the job. Probably just got lucky but my phone spent the night in a spa and after a day drying was no worse for the wear. Not sure I'd have been so lucky w/o the Otterbox.

    I'm confident of the protection

    I purchased an Otterbox Commuter series case for my new iPhone 5S. I was used to the Otterbox Defender case which I had for my iPhone 4, and there are, obviously, differences in the two. I like the fact that now that I have a more streamlined phone in the iPhone 5S, I have a more streamlined case to compliment it. But I have noticed that the Commuter case is harder for me to hold on to since the outer shell comprises most of the "sides" and it'sn't the rubbery silicone texture that I was used to with the Defender case. Also, while I feel like my "lay in place and forget it" screen protector keeps more dust off the screen than the permanent "all in one" screen protector on the Defender series, I feel like my keyboard isn't as responsive, so that's a trade-off. I do believe that Otterbox is the best protection out there for smartphones, and will continue to buy them for any phone I have.

    I had read several negative reviews but based on my prior experience with several Ottorbox products I decided to make the purchase. I am glad I did...my Commuter series fits my iPhone 5 like glove. This version goes on my phone easier than the one on my iPhone 4S and I feel the port covers are better engineered so to stay closed. I read where the case attracted lint from the pockets and I agree this does happen some but it isn't a big deal at all. I will also agree the power button is a little stiff but again not a real issue for me...I can still turn it off and on when needed. Over all I feel it is a great product, very much worth the money and a brand that I know I can trust!

    A Decent Backup in a Pinch

    My Lifeproof case is compromised and I am clumsy. I needed to pick up a quick (and cheap?) replacement to hold me over until I decide whether or not to upgrade to the new model of iPhone in the next couple of months. I looked over my options and settled on the Otterbox. The case is sturdy enough but I don't have as much confidence in my phone being protected if I drop it as I did with my Lifeproof. I also noticed more of an issue with dust and residue building up. The plastic covers over the charging and headphone ports are stiff and not always easy to get around too. But for a "replacement" case that is temporary...it works.

    Good idea... but time will tell!

    This wrapper does what it's supposed to do... protect the outer phone housing from bumps, liquids, dust and so on. At least, it's done that job for the few weeks I've had the phone. Time will tell. The most notable drawback, which is immediately apparent the first time you use the phone, is that the front rim of the product prevents the ear from making contact with the "ear piece" on the front of the phone. External noises (traffic, wind, kids, dogs barking, etc.) make it difficult to hear a phone conversation! In addition, placing the ear against this rim for any length of time is uncomfortable. That's a plus if you want to make short phone calls.

    Great case - the white part stains easily

    This is a great low-profile, high-protection otter box case for the iphone 5s. So far I have dropped it on concrete and cement and the phone has been fine with no damage. There isn't a screen protector included with the case, but I haven't found that to be an issue with protection. The cover is easy to put on and remove. I do this a lot because I use my phone in an armband when I work out. The only complaint that I have is that the white rubbery part around the edges gets dirty quickly. I wore the phone in the back pocket of my jeans for a couple of hours and the white part is now blue. Other than that, love the case.
