2 out of 5 eggs too bulky 01/09/2013

This review is from: OtterBox Defender Black Solid Case For iPhone 5 / 5s 77-21908

Pros: great protection

Cons: Too bulky, dust gets in between the case and the phone, screen is finger print magnet, ruins the clarity of the LCD, vibrate switch as well as charging port and headphone jack hard to access

Other Thoughts: When I received it I was so turned off by its bulkiness (it made my iPhone 5 look bigger than my 3GS) that I put it back in the box with the intent to return it. Two days later I dropped my unprotected phone and shattered the front screen in a way that few cases (the OtterBox being one) would have protected it. After filing an insurance claim, I put the OtterBox on my cracked phone while waiting for the new one to come in. Not only did I find it to be way too bulky for my liking, too many dust particles were found all over my phone, the screen was accumulating finger prints like crazy, and the screen protector also ruined the high quality of the LCD. Because the Otter Box still offered great protection, I eventually decided not to return it and instead keep it as an "emergency case" for times where my phone would be more prone to damage as well as when other cases broke. If you can look past all the drawbacks and/or work in an environment where your phone would take alot of abuse, this is perfect for you, but I would not recommend it for any other reason. There are other cases which are less protective but worth it in terms of money, looks, etc. I do regret not having it on when I damaged my first phone, but I just got a new case which I believe will provide adequate protection and be less bulky.
