    Very sturdy but bulky

    Posted
    Steva2014

    I have had my iPhone 6 Plus for about 2 months and have gone through 3 cases. The first was the Platinum, very sleek and what my husband brought it home with for me. I like more "bling" on my phone cases normally so I picked up a very flashy plastic case with rhinestones on the back - I loved how it looked but it broke within a week so it was a waste of $80 =\ The third was a nice leather case with gold trim, again more my "style" but I dropped my phone from 2 feet and the screen shattered. So I was convinced by my hubby to get an otterbox for my replacement phone - they're all he uses for his phones and now I see why. This thing is the definition of a rugged, protective phone case. It was easy to put on and to make a point my husband threw it across the room and it was fine! I still need to get used to how huge this thing is, and the screen cover isn't quite flush against the screen so it is a little more difficult to type on. But I will never go back to a stupid flashy phone case again, it's not worth it! Huge bonuses - the pink is cute so it doesn't feel like just a giant manly phone case. And Best Buy price matched the Amazon price that I showed them, so I still got a great deal and didn't have to wait for shipping. I'm expecting this case to last the lifetime of this phone so it is well worth it!

    This is my third defender for different iPhones over the years. I drop my phone A LOT! These defenders have saved my phones and have kept all looking brand new and working perfectly for years! I really like the upgrades they have made to the case. It fits better and the flaps for access fit much better than my older ones. The only downside I've noticed is the flap for the charge port doesn't give great access to the port due to lifting of the flap to try to get charge cord in. I also really wish the case blocked the phone better from the bottom side up to the port as it's very easy to get the cord pushed in between the case and phone scratching the phone up! That is very disappointing to me since my others look perfect after so many years each and this new one is getting scratches around the charge port due to this difficulty lifting the flap up and getting cord into port rather than space between. I do have some difficulty with the phone realizing I'm touching something on the screen with the new screen cover built into this one. I didn't have this problem with the older ones. Otherwise I very much like the case.

    Otterbox Defender iphone 6 plus - it keeps it safe

    Good value - much less expensive than new lifeproof for the 6+.. It is pretty big and bulky - kind of like a "rubberbabybuggybumper" for my iphone. BUT it is something I can deal with, considering it is less expensive than a broken phone would be. I wanted something that would protect it from a drop and this does it well. I can see how it would be REALLY hard for someone with tiny hands to use the phone with this case...but its not too much of a problem for me since I don't have tiny hands. The blue color does NOT match the one online here atr Best buy - I was disappointed by that. The other thing that DOES really bug me is that the Holster back should have a cutout for the phone's camera. Easy to miss an opportunity because you cant just swipe to get a picture with that back blocking your lens! Otterbox - you should have thought that one through more. Would I buy it again - I guess...but only because a more streamllined one at the same price with the same protective features hasn't presented itself yet to me

    Durable, but could be a bit better.

    I bought this after hearing that Otterbox makes the most durable cases. I'm impressed with the durable rubber case and it has probably saved my screen from getting cracked a few times. The built in screen cover does a great job of protecting the screen, but it does reduce the screen's sensitivity a bit and cause your taps on the screen to be quite a bit louder. The main downfall I have experienced is the seal between the hard plastic case and the outer protective rubber case. After about 6 months, the rubber has completely lost it's seal. It used to be a tight seal all the way around the phone, but now it seems to have stretched out around the corners. I've only had to remove the phone from the case once, so it's not stretched out from repeated opening/closing. It's not a huge deal because the case is not supposed to be waterproof anyway, but I wish the seal was more airtight.

    What I've grown to expect from OtterBox

    The Otterbox Defender for the iPhone 6+ is exactly what you expect from Otterbox, a well designed case which fits snugly to your device. My only complaint about the case itself is the plastic screen cover, it's the same complaint I have had since the Defender cases were introduced, the screen cover does not fit snugly to the screen creating gaps which not only affect the viewing experience as well as navigating/typing on the screen. I have always removed the screen protector before installing the case and will continue to do so until Otterbox provides a better fit. This is my only knock on the defender case, it works as described otherwise and I'm very happy with my purchase. I'll also add, Otterbox stands behind their products, I have warrantied cases in the past and they have always stood behind their product even when the issue was admittedly my fault. Great company with a great product.

    This is a large and protective case for my iPhone 6+. I needed a case with holster and one that did not separate or pull apart at a seam. I had the Platinum case which failed in 3 weeks. The Platinum separated and sent my new phone crashing to the pavement. There is no possibility of that happening with this Otterbox. There are two issues I would like to point out. The screen protector does not sit flush to the screen. There is a definite give when tapping the screen but it doesn't really affect my usage. My second issue with this case is the extra width. It will not fit in my recently purchased car mount or fit comfortably in my pants pocket. The included holster does the job but there are times I would rather put it in my pocket and go. The bottom line is the case does the job and, for me,the trade offs are acceptable.

    top shelf except for screen cover fit flaw

    Absolutely excellent fit and finish. This product reeks of durability. Solid construction and quality with the exception of space between the screen cover and the iPhone screen- annoying and possibly a deal-breaker for me. I'll give it a week or two then decide on returning it. The space between the cover and screen frequently causes a need for multiple taps or multiple swipes. Aside from that design (manufacturing?) weakness, the case is sturdy with tight tolerances for the price. You've got a new $800 phablet, so be smart and protect it. With the cover on, buttons work just fine as does the home key. I don't use the clip on case, but it does have a smartly designed clip that spins around and functions as a kickstand. I appreciate the added bulk. For me the 6, unprotected, is too thin and slippery for my grubby hands. The rubber makes it feel quite acceptable grippy.

    I used Otterbox a long time ago when I first got my iPhone 4. It was the best around. As I've changed phones, I've discovered Lifeproof and found it to be better. When I upgraded to the iPhone 6+, there wasn't (and still isn't) a Lifeproof case for it yet. I bought an Otterbox to try them again and also because I needed to protect the phone. It scores high in protection from dropping and dust, as far as I can tell. It also appears to be good for light moisture resistance. Where I have trouble is that it's large and the screen cover gives problems with sensitivity. That is to say that you have to press harder than normal and with the new apple multiple step touch ability, it can be frustrating at times. I would recommend this to someone that wants to protect their investment, but only until the Lifeproof case comes out.

    Great Accessory for new iPhone users!

    This is my second case for my iphone 6 plus because the original case I purchased didn't provide enough protection. I used the Otterbox Defender for my previous iphone 4s and it provided great protection, hence why I decided on same for my current phone. There are only a few issues I have with the case, which aren't really negatives. First, the silicone shell...on the previous models, the silicone started to "stretch" and lose its shape. I'm hoping the newer models uses a better material. Second, the screen cover doesn't touch the phone screen so you have to press a little harder. Third, the weight...when attached to the clip, can be a little heavy. Overall, the product does what it's supposed to and that's to protect your phone. If you don't have insurance on your phone, I strongly recommend that you purchase this case!

    Great protection but lousy screen protector

    The cover is light and attractive and has a small footprint, but the screen protector is ugly, too reflective, and doesn't allow proper touch. You really have to pound the screen. I have had a number of protective cases in the last few years, and this one has the worst screen protector of any of them. I would suggest an OtterBox without the screen protector, which is less expensive, allowing you to spend the extra money on a glass screen protector, which preserves the original look and feel of the iPhone touch screen (my daughter has one). Be sure and get an OtterBox with a holster that attaches to your belt and transforms into a phone stand for your desk. This OtterBox has that feature, and I love it!

    Couldn't find a decent waterproof case so I went with this case for now. I have already dropped my phone numerous times in this case and the phone still is in pristine shape. I don't like the fact that there seems to be space in between the phone screen and the plastic screen cover of the case. I also am told that I sometimes can't be heard talking on the phone to someone. I would still suggest this case to someone just because of its durability and toughness for phone protection. So far the falls survived are the following: From the bed From being balanced on top of my grocery items while bringing into the house falling on concrete In the car flying forward from my center console to passenger side when stopping suddenly.

    I have tried to love otterbox cases for years. in fact I have an otterbox commuter on my phone now. but the defender, while fully protecting your phone, really removes a good percentage of touch sensitivity for the screen. because there is a sliver of air between the built in screen protector and your actual screen, you must slightly push down on screen to make contact. this may not bother everyone but I'm a fussy guy like that. I don't like things to lag or have any delayed response when I "click" them. so I very quickly returned this and went with the commuter. My problems with otterbox is they are just plain and/or ugly cases. But they do what they advertise and protect your phone.

    Prefect Case for Protection

    At first, I was skeptical to get this case for my phone, but it is a really nice case. I would have preferred a LifeProof case to this, but they didn't have one for the iPhone 6s. This Otter Box is still good, probably better. Pros -- has a clear screen protector cover (you don't need a screen protector) -- very durable and built to be drop (I have already dropped my phone a few times) -- two layers of protection Cons -- the case make the phone bulkier and heavier -- hard to fit in a pant phone (I just carry mine) -- outer case is hard to get off at first, therefore I recommend googling how to remove it because its ten times easier than the instructions make it out to be

    better than outer box cases I have had in the past but still not as good as a life proof case. But since that case is not out I'm not walking around with a $1000 phone with just a case with raised edges. It makes the already phone bigger and for better or worse the two cameras on the front and back are exposed, no protection. I imagine the covers for the ports for charging and head phones will eventually break off. But all head phones seam to fit without any adapters, which was one thing I hated about the life proof. Like I said it's the best that's out right now but I expect the Live proof to be better.

    Actual color is slightly different than picture

    Overalll, I'm pretty happy with the case. Sure, it's bulky. But it's a very durable case, that even with the increased size, fits well in my pocket. The actual color of the case is quite different than what's pictured, however. The color in the picture looks like a deeper blue, along the lines of a navy blue or even midnight blue. In practice, this is a more standard blue, perhaps best described as cerulean. I would have preferred the darker blue, but the case still looks decent. I also removed the built-in screen protector, because it makes typing difficult.

    First off, I'll start by saying its a good case. But, it has some flaws. (IMO) the screen protector is raised and makes it where you have to push a lot harder than normal making the touch screen hard to use, at least for me. I removed it immediately. But, when you do this it leaves a residue that gets all over your phone. Besides that it's a great case, I've dropped it a couple times (pretty hard) directly on it's face and I slowly picked it up expecting a busted screen, but it was perfect! I really like the case now that the screen protector is gone.

    Best Protection...A lilttle cumbersome

    Otter box is best known fro its protection and i must admit i have dropped my phone 3 times since i have had it and nit a single scratch! I did opt to remove the built in screen protector and opted for a glass protector because I found that the flimsy plastic one lessened the responsiveness of the screen. Also, the thickness of the case can cause some usability issues with plugs that are thicker, All in all i love the protection that this case offer though not the style. I find myself wanting to take it off. I guess function over fashion rings true.

    The case seems to be ready to take on a tank....almost felt like I needed a hammer just to open it to insert the phone!!! Very tight seals; was very well pleased past three years using Defender case for i4 phone. Not sure about the belt clip though. Time will tell on how well it holds up. I feel that the clips are too shallow and few for i6 Plus, but will see how it holds up. Was able to justify spending the extra money on the Otterbox Defender case as I watched other phone cases shatter and had folks replacing phones as well as cases.

    I love the case, but a week after getting it, the plastic clip broke. I've had many Otterboxes and seem to have a problem with them one way or another. Don't get me wrong, they stand behind their products and will provide replacements parts at no charge. But having to do so for one reason or another on every case I by becomes troublesome. I still use the case without the clip and it's a great case.

    Owning a smart phone is part of life anymore for just about everyone. Protecting your investment is key to your phone's life. The otter box defender is for those who's lifestyle puts your phone at risk. The case protects is from just about everything except water. I use my phone at work and it can be subjected to some elements most people don't think about. It protects it well. It does tend to take away from the increasingly smaller phones but I'd rather be safe than having to wait for another phone. Overall it's a good case.
