One of our boys has an iPhone 4S which has had the screen replaced already due to being dropped. Most people know that teenagers tend to not look after their belongings and this rings true with ours.
He has had cheap silicone cases before but has always taken them off because he never liked them. We decided to get him a better, stronger case and this is where the Otterbox Defender Series come in. I spoke to the guys over at MobileZap and they were more than happy to hook me up with the Otterbox Defender Series Case.
The case is very rugged and covers all of the phone, it even has a plastic cover for the screen and I was happy that it feels like you’re touching glass. There hasn’t been any miss-taps. I for one am very impressed with the case. The first thing he wanted to do was do a drop test but I advised against it. There are plenty of YouTube videos are in favour of the case, so no need to test it yet.
The Otterbox Defender Series covers the Home, Volume, and Sleep/Wake buttons and has rubberised “flaps” that cover the Headphone, Ring/Mute switch and Dock Connector. The iPhone is pretty much sealed so to speak. It also comes with a belt holster which can be used as a stand for the iPhone when watching videos.
There’s a circular cut out on the back to show the iPhone’s Apple logo, however I felt that this need not be there. You do tend to see it more and more on Apple cases and there isn’t anything wrong with it. I just felt it would be more aesthetic to be just a flush solid back.
If you’re looking for any kind of tough cases, I would recommend you check out the Otterbox Cases over at MobileZap.
