Otterbox done this is by far the best to protect smartphones in the market. They are certainly more respected. So when I invested in a Samsung Galaxy S4, I knew I wanted to protect my investment. And as I wanted a protective case with belt clip (due to the S4 is a bit big to fit in your back pocket, especially in one case), I decided on the Otterbox Defender. The case has two layers that protect the phone itself - the first is a unit of two-piece polycarbonate is adjusted to cover the entire phone (the screen has a piece of transparent protective covering it, and yet not affect the ability to operate the phone). The outer skin is a thick gel that fits within polycarbonate. Otterbox said to be three layers of protection, because when the case is in the belt clip, is the third layer, especially when the phone is on and the screen is into the clip. The case is not as great as the first thing I thought it would be - some of Otterboxes I saw on iPhones where huge positive friends, while this case is more specific to the dimensions of the phone. It is not heavy, but still have a sense of "protection" when you hold in your hands. The case can be inserted into countless shapes clip. You can confront the phone inward to protect the screen, or outward, it is desirable to see the screen using the belt clip as a stand (the spring clip has a locking piece that stays in position fully Extended, just so you can do). You can also place your phone in the clip either from east to west or west to east, so that no matter what you are wearing the hip may have the upper hand going in the direction you want to facilitate the answering machine. And the clip rotates 360 degrees so you can use it in either vertical or horizontal, and rid the place that feels most natural to you when you want to get your phone into the case. Perhaps the only downsides are that the clip at the top is a little uncomfortable - I still do not understand exactly what I want to use my image so that no bites on my skin or my way while bending or sitting, but I get easily on the phone when I want. In addition, the box has protective rubber gaskets covering the intake port and a helmet load; this means that the case is not dockable, if the opening is large enough for any regular charging cable with micro USB end can be inserted, no problem.
