OtterBox's Poor Customer Support

1

If you're considering purchasing a smartphone case from OtterBox, don't. This company charges over $120 for their Resurgence Power case for iPhone 6, then screwe you over when their battery fails to hold a charge after a year. I had mine for less than two years and, when I sent them a message to inquire about refurbishing or replacing it, they basically said "too bad, we only support our product for one year". As there are plenty of other choices at much cheaper prices and smaller form factor, I suggest you buy something else. I did.

A great point and shoot digital camera

5

I have owned several point and shoot digital cameras in the last several years and this is the only one I would recommend. I have owned Sony, Nikon, and Canon point and shoot cameras and nothing performs nearly as well or as consistently as this Panasonic. Pictures are crisp, it captures motion well, the focus is simple, and it is easy to adjust and use the settings if you want to get a little fancier. My husband owns a Nikon D7000 SDLR and takes beautiful, professional-quality photos - but for a casual excursion when you don't want to be weighted down by a heavy camera plus bag, lenses, and filters, this is a great option for a pocket. We have used it at the beach without worrying about damaging a more expensive camera and it did great. We bought a similar model for my mother in law for a birthday gift and she loves it. It has held up to lots of use over the last few years and shows absolutely no sign of wear. The battery is easy to charge and reuse and holds a long life. I was even able to snap a perfect photo of my two year old son as he put his hand over the lens - I got his face in perfect focus in a split second with his hand covering half the lens. It was a happy accident that my husband doubts he could recreate with his DSLR. Overalll, a great point and shoot camera, one which we would not hesitate to replace with another Panasonic.

Otter Box is My Box

4

The otterbox is probably the best case that will keep your phone safe. It protects about anything that happens to your phone. You can use the otter box under water too! A lot of people end up destroying their phones by trying to use the box under water before they test the box out first. You are supposed to only put a paper towel in the box and let it stay under water for 1-2 hours, if your towel comes out dry, it's good! A lot of people make the mistake of not testing it, and they destroy their phone. The only thing that I do not like about the otterbox is how big it is, You literally feel like you are carrying a brick around. Other than that the otter box is definitely worth getting! One thing I really do like about the otterbox is how hard it is to break it, and the camera works great under water. I have tried many other life cases, and this is one of the best! You should get it some time.

I dropped my phone with the case on it more times than I can count. I have always been a clutz and this product saved me from having to pay to repair or just buy a new phone all together. The money that I paid on this product was more than worth it. I definitely recommended purchasing an otterbox.

The Otterbox while now pretty really rocks!

While the otterbox is not really pretty, it has been very useful for me. I bought it when I got my I phone but always hated it and wanted to get rid of it but then I have dropped my phone so many times I am glad I have it and it most likely is the reason my phone is still like new after almost a year of use. I tend to have my phone in the car door and forget it is there and of course when I open the door there is falls out onto the concrete parking lot. So I am sure it has saved me from having to replace my phone many times. There are a few places that the Otterbox looks stretched out like where I plug it in to charge it. I was told by the customer service people at the wireless store that I could take a picture of it and contact otterbox and they would replace it for free. I told them that I did not have any proof or a receipt but I was told that was not necessary. What a pleasant surprise. Now I have not done this yet but I will do this soon. I was not told if there was a time limit.

very strong and durable

I love this case. Mine is all black like pictured, so it looks great. It is very strong and provides full coverage. I have dropped my phone several times and every time I take the case off (which is not very often) it looks like new. The had case clips closed and completely covers the phone, screen and all. you don't have to put on one of those stick on screen protectors because the case has one built in. It also comes with a clip that locks in place to hold the phone up. The clip is removable and rotates to hold the phone up at different angles. My favorite part is the rubber cover. it helps keep the phone from slipping too much, which makes it easier to watch movies or videos in bed. It has flaps that open and close for charger, headphones and volume on /off switch. it also has a hole by the microphone, and the everything button is complete covered. The only downside is that it is heavy, but worth it.

Great protection

tI have owned several Otterbox Defender Series for iPhones. The only problem I have seen is with the outer Silicone. It wears out after several months of use, and the charge and headphone port tabs will not stay in their spots any more. Also, it is hard to use any type of dock with these cases, because of the charge port tab. They seem to have improved the outer silicone with the iPhone 4S (which will work just fine on an iPhone 4) and iPhone 5 Defender Cases. If you dislike the silicone feeling (or the price) you may like the Otterbox Commuter case better. They offer the same protection, but for a lower price, and if you like to put your phone in your pocket it will not "stick" as much. The included belt holster works well as a sort of stand, but adds a lot of bulk and weight to the phone. I also did not like that there was no camera hole on the holster so you have to remove your phone from it before using the rear camera. Although they are bulky, these cases offer excellent drop protection, and the screen covering will work even if you already have a screen protector installed on your phone.

A must have for your iPhone 4

I've had my Otterbox Defender case for over a year now. It has protected my phone every time I've dropped it and I drop it a lot. My phone is so important like most people I use it for everything! Occasionally I take the phone out to clean the case and my phone looks brand new. It's not waterproof though.

I have dropped my phone numberous time and it makes me feel completely protected from the daily wear and tear my smartphone would normally recieve. It has the rubber outsidde which helps so much when gripping the phone, I do not feel like it is going to slip out of my hand.
