OtterBox Defender overview

  • 1Description

Protect your iPhone 5/5s/SE with the Otter Box Defender Case in black. This case offers your device enhanced protection with a three-layer design. The polycarbonate inner shell snaps around your device and is then surrounded by a rubber outer layer that protects against bumps, abrasions, and drops. The case also includes a plastic screen protector that is built into the inner shell to guard your device's delicate screen. Built-in rubber plugs cover your ports when not in use, keeping them clean from dust, dirt, and grime.

The Defender comes with a clip-on holster that includes a rotating clip that also doubles as a stand for hands-free video watching, typing and gameplay with peripherals, and video chatting. It's designed so that your smartphone can be inserted with its screen facing in or out, so you can add an even tougher layer of protection for your screen.

    OtterBox Defender reviews

    Defender Series Case for iPhone 5/5s/SE (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate I bought this because my wife has a Defender for her Galaxy. It appears sturdy and I'm going to assume that it provides adequate protection. But there are several things that I felt could be better: 1 - The screen protector almost seemed generic - it wasn't the exact size. Practically speaking, that might be immaterial. But I felt that it could be more precise. 2 - The case rendered the button that turns the machine on and off very unresponsive. I resolved this problem by gluing a small piece of UHMW to it. 3 - It is exceedingly difficult to remove and replace - something to consider if, for instance you need to switch out SIM cards.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid case I needed this case as my screen was popping out and this was the only case that truly encases the screen and holds my screen down. The case is a little heavy and bulky for me but im a little guy and i like small things. The holster is a little fiddly and takes getting used to to get the phone in and out smoothly. I don't like that is is really hard to get the phone out with one hand. Think of how many times there is something in one hand when the phone call comes. Overall its a great case and provides the protection you need for your phone

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love I absolutely love this case. Although I have yet to put the case's capabilities to the test, I was convinced to pay $ for a case when my friend literally tossed her iphone off a 4 foot counter onto the floor (not before hitting one of the cabinets, first). I was worried about it making my phone bulky, but after having a temporary case on it in the meantime, going to the Otter Box the phone feels slimmer. It feels really solid and I am SO happy with my purchase. Two thumbs up!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Ultimate This is a very well-engineered product that almost doubtless in my first week of ownership saved my new iPhone SE from breaking as I dropped it. So, it has already paid for itself. It is not as svelte and unobtrusive as other iPhone cases on offer, but, if it is ultimate protection you are looking for, look no further. Or farther, for that matter. One of the rare cases where both of those confusible words are apt. John M.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good but not the best I had a Defender case for 2 years until the rubber cracked and wore out. I got this new one because it is the best for the price. I do not like the redesign of the thumb area near the Home button. it is not as good as the previous version. Still good protectional

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not certain yet ... This case is certainly sturdy. It's not waterproof but I'm certainly confident the phone in the case would survive a considerable fall. OTOH, getting the case open to insert the phone took me half an hour and practically tore my fingernails off. The included picto-gram instructions were useless. The instruction send buyers to the manufacturer's site for instructions but for this item you have to hunt up the instructional video in Youtube. The case has a great feel -- just rubberized enough for a grreat grip, but not so much you can't slide the phone out of your pocket. OTOH, the rim over the front is so deep reaching the Q, P, 1 or 0 when sending a text is tricky. The screen protector is robust but seems to attract dust and there's a little moire where the screen and phone don't make 100% contact. Comparing this to my kid's Lifeproof for the iPhone 4S, this seems more impact-resistant but not nearly as moisture proof. This case is more bulky and heavier. I plan to buy a Lifeproof case to compare before committing to this one. Of course, the difficulty getting this case open makes me nervous I will easily be able to swap cases when the other arrives.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised The case offers great protection. With that being said, the hole where the button is tends to let in dust.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again! I love this fits perfect, bright colors, and above all, keeps my iphone protected.
