Cheap Feel & Blurry Screen Protector, not worth the money

Getting the case on your iPhone is a little challenging. The rubber lining inside can be tricky to line up with the outer shell. Once you have it together it feels pretty cheap and definitely not worth the price. The biggest disappointment is the screen protector. It's really blurry, impossible to put on without bubbles between it and the screen, and it scratches easily. Total crap. All in all very disappointed with my first OtterBox product and will not buy from them again.

He loves this new otter box case I bought him.

The otter case box is for my son's iPhone. This is the only one he wants and he loves it.

Commuter Otter Box!!

Best otter box case there is. Highly recommend it.

Very pleased

I love my otterbox case. It has kept my phone safe from various falls. My case did crack at one point within the first year and the customer service at otterbox could not have been better. Submitted the warranty claim online with picture of the crack and a new one was at my door 4 days later.

Good case

Had an otterbox on my last iPhone. It protected it. I bought this otterbox for my new one as a result. I'm happy with it.

Otterbox commuter case for iPhone 5

Having never owned an iPhone before I felt I would need something robust to protect it and the Otterbox case is just that. There is a screen protector included but I didn't fit this as the guys at the Apple store said it wasn't required as the Gorilla glass on the phone is very durable and almost scratch-proof so cannot comment on the usability with this on, but can say that my son, who uses his constantly with the screen protector, has had none of the problems mentioned previously. The quality of the product is very good but havn't dropped it yet so cant comment on the durability but so far I'm very impressed. Keep up the good work otterbox!

I had an Otterbox for my iPhone 4 and was really pleased. My first purchase after getting my iPhone 5 was a new Otterbox. I found the screen protector made it difficult to text and the case was really rigid. I returned it and now have a Casemate which does a great job at about 20% cheaper.

Good product

I recently bought this for my Iphone and it has saved it around 3 times so far. Most recently I had my phone in my shirt pocket and went to pick something up near the stairs. Iphone slides out of my pocket and bounces off literally all 10 hardwood steps into the basement hitting concrete on the bottom. Not a scratch just a minor blemish on the case. That other review is full of it, the button isn't hard to push at all, and as for the thickness, it is a trade off. Broken phone in a thin case, or a safe phone in a case that still fits in your pocket no worse than your wallet. All in all great product and I would recommend otter box to any phone user who is part of activities where your phone may fall onto a hard surface.

Terrible Compared to Past Otterbox's

Recently picked up this case based on previous exceptional experience with the commuter series on my iPhone 4. However, this case is extremely disappointing. The part of the case covering the power button is extremely rigid and hard to push. Furthermore, the case has extremely sharp edges. Seems as if Otterbox rushed this case out the door while ignoring their signature quality in the process. Also, iPhone 5 and case is the same thickness as my iPhone 4 and case were, extremely disappointing considering sleekness of iPhone 5 compared to iPhone 4. Overall, I am extremely disappointed with this case and had I not prematurely disposed of the packaging, I would definitely be returning this case. Will definitely be looking for a different case.
