Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: OtterBox Defender Case for iPhone 5 - Black (discontinued by manufacturer) (Accessory)
Afetr spending £529 on the new Iphone 5 I wanted something taht would give it pretty much alround protection. The case it's self comes in 3 parts the internal case which also has a screen protector and works with screen protector underneath it as well. The second case is like 3mm thick rubber whcih protects the bac and sides with rubber tabs that pull out so you can acces the various switches and sockets. The 3rd bit is a belt clip which acts like a shield if you choose to use it covering the front.
I have dropped it at least once and its protected the phone quite well. As the phoen costs a lot i won't do a test to destruction on it but looks and feels like it will do the job upto the point of some one stepping on the phone. Not sure it would stand up to full blown intentional attack.
It feels like a good soild bit of protective kit.
Sold at £14 which is a really good price.
Water and dust proof to a level.
Makes the phone quite large and destroys the benefits of having a slim line phone (but hey the protection is there).
