    If your looking for ultimate protection, you have found the case. However there are a few drawbacks. It does add bulk to the iPhone and takes away some of the beauty of it. The screen protector does add a kinda sparkle to the screen, I saw a few reviews where people took off the built in protector and put there own in. Have not tried it, but it should work fine.

    Bottom line: Gives you a lot of peace of mind, if you are willing to make scarifies.

      So happy to get the Otter Box case. Now I can breath a sigh of relief when I accidentally drop my phone. Already broke two phones and now that I have my Otter Box I feel confident that it will never happen again!

              This is a great case for the iPhone and just what I needed. Even when not caried in the holster, the soft rubber shell provides great handeling comfort and protection.

              The only problem was in trying to figure out how to get the outer rubber layer off to install the phone. Even with the help of the vidio provided on their Website, I was afraid of tearing the shell at opening points. I did eventually do it however. Somewhere along the line a couple of specks got under the plastic screen cover, but I am reluctant to reopen it just to get them out.

              If you need or want to protect your Iphone 4&4S, this is the cover to get. It protects really well from any impacts. But if you are looking for beauty than I would not recommend this one as this is not the prettiest thing to cover your Iphone with. For me it really did the Job i was looking for.

                      The Otterbox Defender is a great case. The case fits the iPhone perfectly and was simple to attach. I now feel much more comfortable carrying my phone around knowing a small bump or jolt is not going to destroy the phone. The holster is easy to use and grips the phone securely. The stand up function has come in handy for using the phone to show videos to my toddler.

I do not have any issues with the additional size and I also find it very easy to place into the belt holder with no problems.

                        The Defender case is solid and super absorbent, which is what I need with a 3 yo around. It's bulky, but I knew it would be. It's worth it to me for the added protection.
