5 out of 5 eggsOtterbox Defender 4S

Pros: Solid case, provides excellent protection. Mine is watertight as proven by dropping the phone into a mountain stream while hiking and backtracking 15 minutes later to retrieve it from underwater. Perfectly dry . It does what it claims and I have no complaints.

Cons: Yes some crud works in under the case eventually and periodic cleaning is a must. But the level of protection of the phone makes this a small price. Belt clip is solid as long as you take a second to clip it in and assert it's locked in. Headphone cord, or shirt tail likes to get between the phone and the clip when snapping it in, so care on that aspect is needed. That's how mine went swimming and passed the extended water test.

Other Thoughts: When it breaks I'll get another, they are worth it if you care for and want to keep your phone safe and secure on your person without any worries. Locks on belt clip with an audible snap. I for one don't like it taking over my pocket and use pandora a lot so having on the belt works well for me with the headphones. Clip rotates phone as needed.

5 out of 5 eggsgood if you are accident prone

Pros: very sturdy, has a built in screen protector. this will fit the 4s, at least it fits mine

Cons: bulky, hard to take off, but why would you do that anyways?

Other Thoughts: buy this or one of its kind if you are accident prone. it could save you major $$$ in the long run. it pays for itself in one drop. hard plastic and rubber is a good combination

4 out of 5 eggsMy version

Pros: There were two very interesting material changes in this case:
1. The screen protector was altered in some way that seems to eliminate the adherence bubbling problem that existed in the earlier version.
2. The exterior case is less 'rubbery' and is now more like a vinyl cover. It still has shock absorber capability, although possibly less than the previous version. The firmer cover does seem to fit better. It is , however, slightly slicker, and therefore does not confer the same 'stickiness' to the case that might prevent a phone from sliding out of a pocket into a toilet. Note that the case is still pretty sticky in a pocket, just a bit less so.
See below.

Cons: See above.

Other Thoughts: I had already owned the 'universal' (4/4S) version of the Otterbox Defender case for my iPhone 4S. The screen protector was getting pretty scratched up, so I took a chance on this iPhone 4 version of the case...And which turned out to be conformationally identical to the universal case. There were absolutely no problems with using a '4S' in the Defender case I received from NewEgg clearly labeled on its packaging as being a '4' case.

2 out of 5 eggsDecent Protection - Onerous Warranty Support

Pros: Solid protection for our 18 iPhones in use by our Police Detectives. Phones have survived numerous drops, bumps, and foot chase falls.

Cons: The case adds considerable size, bulk, and weight to the iPhone. As others have stated the, rubber outer is a dust and lint magnet. The rubber outer tears at the upper right had corner near the mute switch easily. The plastic ears on the side of the case that hold it in the belt clip also tend to be a weak point as we've had several break. Warranty replacement is a rather onerous process that involves taking pictures of the case from several angles they specify, and then waiting to hear back from Otterbox if they are going to accept the pictures, ask for retakes, or even honor the warranty at all.

Other Thoughts: Honestly, Otterbox, if you do read these reviews, how about making the warranty process a little less... draconian? How about just acknowledging that the case has some weak points and honoring your warranty without making your customers jump through so many hoops that they just give up on getting you to honor the warranty? Or is that the whole point?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Price

Pros: Had this otterBox for over a year and it was worn out so I ordered another one. Got it in 2 day ( always great shipping with Newegg. My phone was in prefect condition when took it out of the old Otter Box to put in the new one. Like I said my phone had been in it sense new but I work in a factory and have dropped my phone several times and have got caught in the rain on my motorcycle each time my phone was dry and without a scratch.

Cons: The phone can get a little bit hot in the otter box if using the GPS or watching a movie but its easy to take out for doing this.

Other Thoughts: Love New Egg

4 out of 5 eggsKnow your stuff before review!

Pros: This will protect your phone from some rain or small spills. Also protects well from drops.

Cons: The silicon outside becomes deformed after owning it for awhile and does not fit the phone perfectly. This could be because it stays in my pocket and is removed every 30 min or so.

Other Thoughts: Know your stuff before you review!! TONS of reviewers are complaining about the headphone thing on top being in the wrong spot. That hole is there for a light sensor that was moved to the front of the iPhone 4s (hence why this one doesnt say 4s) not for your headphones. The top flap is designed to cover the headphone hole to prevent dust/lint etc from getting in that jack.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Sturdy, durable, waterproof. The hold at the top is not meant t be for a headphone jack as mentioned by some idiot as con, it is there to create the watertight feature. It's almost like a suction so water doesn enter.

Cons: None
