Product Description
Slim and Chic, Meets Rough and Rugged

The iPhone 5 is worthy of protection from the most rugged and nearly indestructible Defender Series case. Because your iPhone is not just a smartphone, the Defender Series is not just a case — it’s a multi-layer protective solution for your most prized possession.

The Defender Series for the iPhone 5 draws inspiration from customers with an active lifestyle or who subject their phone to harsh environments. Its robust, three-layer design withstands dust, drops and bumps, making the Defender Series the industry leader for its protective qualities. From a drop onto the asphalt to a toss across your living room by a temper tantrum throwing toddler, we’ve thought of all of those “worst case scenarios” when designing the Defender Series.

OtterBox provides Protection For What’s Next.
  • Three layers of protection include a polycarbonate skeleton cushions the iPhone.
  • Built-in screen protector prevents smudges and scratches.
  • Outer layer wraps around the solid inner shell creating a practically indestructible iPhone 5 case.
  • A belt-clip holster is included and doubles as a media viewing stand.

I purchased this from a seller on amazon for £13 but the item supplied was a fake.

It was of inferior quality because the case screen had a green tint and the material of the case did not feel as nice as the genuine Otterbox my wife purchased from a well known high street store on the same day (for a higher price).

There is just no way a genuine otterbox case is available for £13 so watch out for fakes.

This is my 4th Otterbox Defender. I've used one on the iPhone 3GS, on the iPhone 4 and now on the iPhone 5. My wife also has one on her iPhone 4S. I have also used a Griffin Survivor on my iPhone 4, so I know the difference with that too.

I use these cases to protect my iPhone when i'm mountain biking, camping etc and when the children want to use the phones!

I'm pleased to say that the Defender seems to get better with each release. The 3GS suffered from terrible 'watermarks' on the integral screen protector when it touched the screen, and a too stretchy outer silicone layer which got sloppy on the case after a while. They'd solved the watermarks on the iPhone 4 version but the sloppy silicone was still there. They solved that too on my wifes 4S version, but introduced a new problem - a pretty rubbish fitting cover over the power connector at the bottom, which was just a pain to fit properly.

I'm pleased to say that no such problems exist with the Defender on the iPhone 5. The screen protector is beautifully clear, works perfectly and has no watermarks in sight. Similarly, the silicone outer layer is now a much firmer material which fits much more snugly and doesn't look like it will stretch over time. The covers protecting the vibrate switch, headphone socket and lightning port also now all fit easily but also nice and tightly.

The outer plastic shell fits as well as it always did and the back plate has a nice thin piece of foam type material to protect the back of your phone.

The camera cutouts front and back are large enough to allow the devices to work but no bigger than they need to be I don't think. Any smaller and I think the camera might pick up the edge of the case.

This is one tough case. I have dropped mine from quite a height and not a mark or damage to the phone inside.

Well worth spending the money to protect that expensive IPhone 5.

If you want your iphone to remain in mint condition then this is defiantly the case for you as long as you don't mind the phone being completely locked away, a bit bulkier and its good looks hidden. I fall into that category. I am an Electrician and work on building sites so I want my phone to be completely protected.

If you was to drop your phone this case would defiantly protect it and the case seems completely dust proof. The case is a hard plastic shell with a rubber/silicone cover over it. I like the fact that the case has a screen protector build into it so no need to buy a separate screen protector and go through the rigmarol and awkwardness of applying it. It is easy enough to apply.

Minor negatives about the product. The home button is a lot more stiffer to press with the case applied but this is not a deal breaker for me. And also the silence switch, headphone socket and lightning connector port are covered by there own separate flaps. I find these awkward to open. And seems like a pain in the backside just to switch my phone to silent, put my phone on charge or connect my headphones. I have to get a pen or something similar to open the flaps out and still find them awkward to open. And I get a feeling over time of these being opened and closed they will probably break off. Although they do keep the dust out which is positive.

I suspect the case is fairly protective when it comes to dropping the phone but if you're working in anything involving brick dust and such like then be very careful.

A month or so after buying this I noticed a triangular mark around where the earpiece part is on my phone screen. This looked like something which could just be wiped off. Actually it was a large scratched area where the brick dust gets in under the front casing and rubs between the casing and the screen.

I contracted otterbox about this but they sort of apologised then pretty much said it was my fault and there was nothing they can do. It's now sitting in a draw in my house and I would not use it again as I didn't want further damage to the very phone it was meant to be protecting.

Had a defender for my old iphone 3. The plastic has been much improved - it is harder, appears more durable and isn't quite as grippy so it's not a struggle to get it out of your pocket.

This case offers maximum protection and in my opinion doesn't detract from the overall quality of the phone.

Only gets 4/5 as had a few problems with rainbowing on the screen and personally I would have like a thin layer of plastic over the front and rear camera to make the case slightly more waterproof like in the iphone 4 defender case (obviously they have removed this so the plastic doesn't interfere with the quality of the camera).

I opted for the super saver delivery and product arrived well before estimated delivery date in good condition.
