    This is a great case that takes on the abuse of everyday real life happenings. Oops! I dropped my phone. I don't know how many times I have to do that... Rrr! Good thing I have an otter box to save the day. Rugged, tough, grippy, colorful. This is my 4th OtterBox after wearing out the others on two other phones. 4, 4s and now 5s. Great product!

    I had a previous version of the Otterbox and it served well for almost 2 yr, but then began to fall apart. This version is much better in that it seems to fit better and more securely closes the ports when not in use. The caveat is that it is awkward to release the phone from the belt clip; it requires both hands which is annoying.

    Another Otterbox

    This otterbox is great, just like all the other otterbox cases. I really got it so my husband could have the belt clip since his is always breaking. My one complaint about every otterbox I've had is that the bottom, front rubber part ALWAYS stretches and becomes loose after time. Perhaps it's due to how it's held. Overall I really like these cases.

    This is the perfect case for my son's phone. It is very strong and durable. The only complaint that I have at this is that the home screen button is covered and that touch ID cannot be used. It says that it's for iPhone 5 and 5s, but it truly isn't since you cannot use the home button on the 5s for touch ID. So far though, the kid doesn't mind :)

    Good case for drops

    This case is good if you drop your phone a lot and don't have to worry about a busted phone but do not drop it in water or get it rained on since this this case is not water resisted. Also this case is not made good since the rubber where it covers your inputs will rip if you are not gentle and the belt clip breaks a lot since I been thru 3 of them.

    Otterbox has always made awesome cases. Way better than LifeProof. LifeProof blocks your iPhone signal really badly. Plus, if you need a LifeProof case, maybe you aren't responsible enough to own a smart phone... Just sayin. My only complaint about this one, is the pink gets dirty quickly, but it does clean up easy with a small alcohol wipe pad.

    This is a good choice, very protective of phone. Two issues: The high ridge that protects the screen gets in the way when logging in via fingerprint, usually takes a couple of tries. Also it is a bit hard to latch it onto belt clip and unlatch, especially with winter clothing. On the plus side, it has not fallen off belt once.

    The case fits snugly over my iphone 5 and protects the body of the phone itself from any kind of scratches or wear and tear. The screen protector on the front is kind of loose fitting though and lets small pieces of debris and dirt get under it and it is just annoying to take apart and clean. I also wish the cases had different camo patterns.

    I had to replace the Otterbox the day after I got it due to the clip breaking off when I was getting into my car. I have now had it a month and the replacement has held up OK. The charger door is a bit of a pain to use, especially to get the cord out of- I try not to pull on the cord, for fear that it will pull out of the connector.

    Previous case was broken by a 2-year old. Was looking for an inexpensive otterbox for the phone because I was awaiting the new iPhones coming out, so I didn't want to get something expensive if I wasn't going to keep the phone. Case was on sale, super cheap, great otterbox quality, but the ugliest design ever (not that important).

    Always had iPhone's since GEN 1, wouldn't buy another phone if I had a million bucks. User friendly, easy to read display, and awesome cots make this the best phone on the market. I went out and purchased one for my mom, and she doesn't even like using cell phones, and she loves it. Would recommend this product to any apple head.

    Heavy, but it does the job

    My only complaint about this cover is that it is heavy compared to other choices. Of course, I'm sure they could have made the cover from a lighter material, but the cost would probably be out of most everyone's budget. I've never heard a single complaint about the protection this cover provides, and so far, I'm in that category too.

    Otterbox Defender Series for iPhone 5

    Overall I am satisfied with this case but the only complaint I have is that the end of my Beats Audio headphone cable that plugs in the device will not fit. The case is designed more for a straight connection and not one that is at 90 degrees. I have sent an email to Otterbox and have not heard back.

    Pricey but durable

    I’ve always loved Otter box products because they’re the best case in my opinion for protection. I’m giving four stars because they are high priced and the cases could be slimmer because they can be bulky in pocket.

    I used the Otterbox for a couple of weeks. It was too bulky for my liking. I decided to go with just a back cover and screen protector for my iPhone 5 so I can see the beauty of the phone and enjoy the feel of the phone in my hand. I'll just send it to iHospital if I break it and pay. The Otterbox is a great package, just not for me.

    For several years this was THE case for the ultimate in protection for your device. Now there are newer models that offer more protection, and slimmer cases that have equal protection. But you can't go wrong with The Defender! I purchased this at Best Buy but with price matching from Amazon... $20 before tax.

    I love this product. I had a case for my 4 and got this one when I upgraded to the iPhone 5. In am just a little disappointed that this case clear cover over the screen scratched after only about a months use. The outer case is very durable. The clear cover does seem to be holding up as well as the 4 case did.

    I like the look and durability of the Otter Box. I also like that it has a clip that can be used. I am somewhat disappointed that the clip is tearing up the rubber part of the case when the phone is placed in the clip or taken out of it. Otherwise, I am pleased with the phone case.

    I love this phone case! I've used phone cases by Speck for years but my last one cracked within a year. I have honestly never dropped my phone so it's disappointing that it broke. Otterbox is much stronger and better-built than other cases I've looked at. I'm definitely sticking with Otterbox cases from now on

    What can I say? The otterbox design has proved itself over and over again with many phone designs. Solid case, with nice features like the screen protector and belt clip. My only qualm is that it's just a little bulky to effectively pocket carry. That's the tradeoff for great drop protection though.
