Arrived direct from Amazon so I knew this would/should be the real deal. Amazon delivered within 24hrs as promised via Prime, I only wish it could be returned & myself refunded within the same timescale!
Having purchased one on fleabay recently that looked very good, came in all retail packaging and even had all the Otterbox stamps in the right places... closer inspection revealed some pretty poor workmanship & inferior materials. That said the rather lightweight silicone outer shell on the fake case actually held to the device better than this original from Amazon. The problem I have with this case from Amazon (original, pukka, legit, kosher etc. etc etc.) is that the outer rubber skin peels off far to easily. I brought this case as I work on site and need a case to protect my phone during the day. I am afraid with this case I will be pulling my hair out every time I get the thing out of my pocket, you see... where the volume buttons & mute switch cover is (rubber flap) the skin does not grip the inner shell too well, resulting in this part of the casing coming away with the slightest of touches. I am by no means heavy handed and not exaggerating when I say this is a great annoyance as I was expecting so much from this case.
For info... the best case I have had so far was the Spek PixelSkin HD, although it doesn't protect the screen... it has lasted me a good 18 months and shows no sign of wear... just beware as any screen protector on your iphone will case the PixelSkin to bulge slightly as the measurements are spot on.
