Hey guys, got my hands on an Otterbox Defender Case for the Iphone 4 and I decided to make a video for you guys. Overall a great case, and i hope you guys find this review helpful and helps you make a choice whether or not to go out and buy one!
I had a Zagg shield and I had to remove it cause it didn't fit into the defender with the Zagg. Extremely tight and I didn't want to force it in.
How did you manage to fit it in with the Zagg?
Also a better alternative in my opinion is the commuter. I've been using the commuter for about a week and liking it better than the defender. Doesn't offer as much protection but to me it offers enough protection. And I can use my Zagg with it as I didn't want to waste my money.
Good review though. I wish the defender had a gasket to protect the back camera/flash like the seidio rugged.
Hey Marc, I didn't seem to have many problems inserting my phone into the case. Everytime i try to insert my phone into the case, it does get stuck a little as I diagonally insert it in, but then i just push the phone straight in with my thumbs and it sort of pops in. It's just that the ZAGG skin really takes up more space than required. When i take out the case though, it's literally glued to the glass case so its sort of a hassel to get it out sometimes. I don't know what to really say since you cant show me in person but all I do is just give it a little force and it will go in nicely.
I have been rocking the defender for a couple months and really like it. I went to watch your video and seen that it was over 8 minutes long !!!! Sorry I quickly hit the done button. If you want to see mine in red check out my review thread with pics.
I have a defender too and its great. Love the design, look, and protection. Well worth $30 bucks. I dont batt an eye when I drop my phone, and hand it over to the kids easily to run off with. My only regret is that I would like a way to plug in the headphones without opening the flap. Wish there was just a hole drilled in there for the headphones. Otherwise its a pretty much perfect case, a little bulky but worth it for the protection. Besides its well designed and looks slick to me. I went with a safe Black one. I take it apart weekly to clean it and my phone stays factory fresh!
good to see another Defender user.. I agree..I guess it depends if you need the ip4 to be "kid friendly" or not..lol..my kids always want to do something with it..so I have no problem giving it to them with the case.
When I bought my iPhone4 I originally went with the Ballistic case which I thought was WAY too bulky. Saw the OtterBox Defender case, had one on my old 3g iPhone, so I got this one, I went with the blue case. My phone has been in a case since the moment I got it, can never be too safe. I've dropped my phone, granted, it was on carpet, but it bounced around and have had no issues.
