Customer Reviews of OtterBox Defender APL2-I4XXX Carrying Case (Holster) for iPhone - Black - Silicone - Textured
very nice product i am happy to get it !!!
Great protection, bumper cover not so great10/28/2011
The case offers great protection. I accidentally ran over the phone with my car, and the case and the phone were fine! The silicone rubber part gets soft after a while. Mine started to tear. I emailed Otterbox and they promptly sent a new one for free. The new one was better at first, but it is now getting soft too. Also the screen protector seems to interfere with using the iPhone for loyalty card scanning at stores
First Time Otterboxer3/8/2011
Pros : Protection, Quality, Style Cons : Minor Touch issue, dust Best Uses : iPhone 4 I'd always looked at the Otter box cases, but at retail stores they were pretty much priced out of my comfortable spending range for a phone case. When I came across the Otter Box Defender for 19.99 I just knew it was a typo. Low and behold to my benefit (and I'm sure to many, many others) this was the correct price and I jumped on it as soon as possible before they became sold out. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Being a first time Otterbox user, it was a little bit difficult figuring out how to disassemble the case to fit on my phone based on the instructions on the box, but once I went to the website it was smooth sailing. So for others that may be having trouble following the fairly terrible instructions on the box, they have step by step instructions as well as videos on their site. If I had to field complaints it would be that the case can collect and hold on to dust and that sometimes when using the phone near the bottom the touch doesn't register very well. For instance, when I swipe to unlock my phone or use some of the keys on the bottom row of the keyboard I have to try several times to get it to go through. It's almost like the facing close to the bottom of the case doesn't allow the touch to register cleanly. All in all I love this case and would recommend it to anybody, especially at a sale's price. I feel like my phone has all the protection it will ever need...at least until the next one comes out!
Great for protection, not so great for keeping cle10/27/2010
I like the otterbox, but I have had some of the same problems that others have had. The silicone slips off from time to time and the dust collects really badly. I appreciate the fact that it will protect the phone and thats why I got it...I may get a slimmer case for everyday use and just use the otterbox when skiing. I also emailed Otterbox with a question and they never got back to me....
Not a great purchase10/25/2010
The good part is the protection which is the primary thing needed and heard this one is good from several people. The quality is still not that great. The skin does not hold well. The item I got especially does not hold well at all in the charger section very annoying. Accumulates dust easily another annoying thing.
It's an Otterbox.10/8/2010
What more can I say? It's an Otterbox. I could drop this thing from an airplane and it would still protect my iPhone. Plus it has a screen protector built in so I don't have to worry about the cheap looking sticker. The only bad thing is it has the silicone outer part that doesn't really stay in place over the inner plastic. Kind of annoying. Plus getting it apart and back together when I first got it was a pain. I didn't pay the discounted amount for my phone so the minor annoyances are well worth the protection. (I've already dropped it a few times!)
