I am very pleased with the sturdiness, how well it fits and how secure I feel with it in my hand, but the hole for the earphones is in the wrong place. There is a flap that covers the hole but the hole in the flap is at the wrong end making it impossible to push the jack into the proper spot on the phone. This means I will have to either drill a new hole or rip the flap off -- disappointing
I've used the Otterbox cases for a couple years now, and they're fabulous. I'm accident-prone, fairly careless about the stuff I own, and have two small children who think smart phones are not only a great source of wildlife videos, but quite tasty to boot. Underneath the camouflage I chose for my cover, there's a squeaky clean, scratch-free iphone. It's just too bad I don't hunt.
This is my second Otterbox Defender and the first one lasted two years . It has protected my phone very well from numerous falls. I made the replacement only because the first one was looking quite shabby. Do yourself a favor and get one of these for a mere pittance and know that your phone is well taken care of. A bonus is that your phone stays looking new inside the case!
