I had an otterbox case for my iphone 3 which kept it looking like new, and this is an even better version as the rubber doesn't stick to my hair like the old one did. Its very robust and keeps the iphone safe.
On this otterbox case the camera hole isnt covered. Would definitely recommend.
The following are some FAQ's from the Otterbox website which may help you.
The new iPhone 4 case seems less sturdy than the iPhone 3G/ 3GS cases, is it less protective?
The level of protection from the iPhone 4 case is the same as that of the one made for the iPhone 3G/3GS.We have tested it through an outside testing facility to confirm that we meet the high standards you have for our product. You can rest assured your iPhone 4 is protected!
Something appears to be wrong with my iPhone 4 case, the hole at the top doesn't line up with my headphone port, is my product defective?
Actually, the port cover is correct. The hole in the port cover is intended to leave open access for the noise-cancelling mic. To use headphones you need to open this port cover. This cover prevents dust and dirt from entering the device when the headphone jack is not in use.
Is the felt lining in the iPhone 4 Defender Series case going to be offered on Defender Series cases for all devices?
The interior felt was added specifically because iPhone 4 and iPad devices are made of a glass backing. We included the felt lining to prevent scratches to this glass. At this time it is not on other devices, but we are looking into adding it to more of our Defender Series cases given the positive response it's received.
Are your cases compatible with other products like the Apple bumpers, iPad Smart Cover or the ZAGG InvisibleShield?
Our cases are precision-fit to the device. Any other products that change the dimensions of the device would not be compatible with our cases.
What is the difference between a Commuter Series and a Defender Series case?
At this time, the Defender Series is our most protective case. Its multi-layer design is made up of a hi-impact polycarbonate shell that completely encloses your smartphone. A non-stick, clear protective membrane covers the screen and keys and a durable outer silicone layer completes the case. Included with each Defender Series is a ratcheting belt clip holster. A slight step down in protection level, the Commuter Series is a sleek and tough case made of a durable impact absorbing silicone mid-layer and a form fitting outer polycarbonate shell. The Commuter Series' slim form factor and sleek exterior enable it to slip easily into pockets (it does not come with a belt clip holster). Both are made of high quality materials and meticulous construction methods. The differences between the two cases are most evident in the amount of bulk each adds to a smartphone and the level of protection you desire.
Will my Defender Series case fit onto my device if I already have another screen protector on it?
The Defender Series case is designed to fit the device tight with clearances to prevent damage to the device. The Defender was not designed to be used with a screen protector. Doing so may cause the case to be too tight or not close properly.
How do you clean the Defender Series?
The Defender Series can be cleaned with mild soap and water, then air dried or dried lightly with a paper towel. Please be careful not to scratch the inside of the protective membrane. The outside of the membrane is scratch resistant, while the inside of the membrane can be scuffed fairly easily. Please take care when cleaning and drying the inside of these screens.
Do the smartphone cases come with a belt clip?
All of our Defender Series cases come with belt clip/holster included, with the exception of the iPod touch.
Can I buy just the silicone part alone if I want to change the color of my OtterBox?
Unfortunately, not at this time. We have had a lot of requests for this and are looking into this as a future option.
Will the OtterBox allow me to use my device at high altitudes?
The OtterBox itself does not change the specified altitude range that the device is rated to function at.
Are your cases intrinsically safe?
Because OtterBox cases are designed to work with electronic devices, they are not intrinsically safe. There are a wide variety of devices on the market so to determine if your device and the OtterBox case together are intrinsically safe they would need to be tested by a certified testing lab.
Do your OtterBox cases have a UV protection rating?
The clear boxes allow for no protection from UV rays. The solid color boxes provide nearly 100% protection from UV rays.
Looking on the Otterbox website has lots of other information and videos on the instructions on how to use cases, but not currently the iPhone 5. However the instructions for the iPhone 4 are sufficient.
It is no doubt a robust protection for the iphone 5 (although I haven't tried throwing it about). I bought it because I am of the habit of dropping phones. Intriguingly that didn't happen over the 4 months I've had the case. About a month ago, the edges of the silicone outer cover started to "warp" with ugly crumpled edges at 3 of the 4 corners. [No, I don't remove the cover ever since installing it]. Today, the plastic belt clip snapped.
The cover looks ugly now and the belt clip cannot be used. The whole thing is useless, after 4 months.
