4 out of 5 eggsGreat Mid-Range Case

Pros: This is smaller than Defender series Otterbox, cheaper too. I like that the outside is plastic and is easy when going in and out of a pocket (unlike rubber/silicon cases).

Cons: Could have been cheaper, but that's always the case...

I am not worried about it, but the case does leave a circle on the back open to show off the Apple logo - some people might be bothered by the case not completely covering the back of the phone.

5 out of 5 eggsSuberb product

Pros: Design, durability, access to all features in use. Suberb protection without excessive bulk.

Cons: Won't fit in my blackberry car phone holder(it did before without case). Now I gotta go buy a holder and not sure if it will fit with case

Other Thoughts: Great product suberb in its purpose

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: Nice tactile feel on the grip yet a durable shell. I like how there are covers over the jacks and they have buttons over the buttons for volume & off. It's a rubberized feeling material that has some grippiness, too.

Cons: Can't think of anything...

Other Thoughts: I was searching for several months NEEDING to get some form of cover to provide protection without sacrificing access. This fits the bill! It has a flap over the connector you just flip & hold open while inserting the plug for recharging/sync.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Comes with a screen protector
Fits well
Most importantly covers all the ports with rubber flaps

Cons: Leaves the back logo exposed, some people may like this but I would prefer ttal coverage. I cut an older screen protector down to size and put if over the logo, under the cover. Small nitpick, easy solution.

5 out of 5 eggsA Great Case

Pros: Just a great, well-thought out case design. All the buttons and ports are protected, yet they are completely functional and convenient. Where there are buttons, silicon buttons protrude so it's like the case has it's own buttons and they work great. The blend of plastic and silicon in the case is great - it slides in and out of your pocket without catching but also will absorb impact on the corners if dropped. There's a little hole in the back where the Apple log is so you can see it - I think that's kind of cool.

The charger port is covered by a silicon flap when not in use and folds back very nicely when ready to charge. I like how this keeps dirts out of there.

Cons: I can't really think of any except spending a little bit of money on it. It's not too bad though at all.

Other Thoughts: I had another full silicon case before this one and the Otter Box Commuter is so much better. My main issue with the one before was that it would always catch on my pocket and pull out my pocket as I pulled the phone out because it was rubbery. The Commuter is the perfect balance between silicon and plastic. It feels so much better than the last one.

Mine came with a screen protector as well.
