Do you know OtterBox? This is a brand I have known for quite some time and they make quality products. I first heard of them through Twitter I think and I got Hubby an OtterBox case back then because he is known for being very hard on his smartphones and has ruined a few. Recently I switched to a new Windows Phone 8 and so Hubby quickly asked if he could have my old phone, the Samsung Galaxy SIII. I agreed and I picked out this new case just for him – the OtterBox Defender with Realtree Camo. This made Hubby “happy, happy, happy” as they say on Duck Dynasty, his favorite TV show.
Now when I was using this phone I had girlie case – see that sparkly one in the top right above? It is not an OtterBox design, but I like sparkly. OtterBox does have some pretty bright colors though too. Anyway, Hubby quickly discarded my sparkly case so he could turn the phone into a manly man phone by protecting it with the Defender in Realtree camo. I have learned that anything “Realtree camo” is far superior than just “camo” according to Hubby.
The OtterBox Defender comes with 3 piece. The first is the polycarbonate inner back plate which has that nice little padding in it to cushion the phone and nicely cut-out areas for all of your phones ports, mics, lenses, and such. They fit extremely well based on your phone, not just a generic that sort-of fits. Yes, these cases are more expensive than the kiosk in the mall, but they really do protect your phone well!
Then you use the front piece which has a built in screen protector and snaps together snugly with the bottom part you just put on. Again, it has the cut outs for speakers and such in just the right places too. One of the things about the Samsung Galaxy SIII was that the screen was super sensitive, a little too much I thought. For Hubby though, now with the screen protector part in place it really is just right for him. He does not have to push super hard or press multiple times to get the screen to react – it works great in the OtterBox.
You can see here when both of those two piece are together it is a nice fit and you can also see how accurate OtterBox is with the cut-out areas based on your phone model.
Then comes the outer case which is silicone and really protects the phone from so much. The back side has the oh-so-important Realtree camo for Hubby. On the front there is just the small rim of black and the inner hunter orange that you see.
I love that the outer silicone box also has these little flaps over the ports to protect them from getting dust and dirt in them. The seal up nicely, but are not too difficult to open either.
So now Hubby has his new phone all protected from dust, dirt, scratches, dings, drops and whatever else he comes across in the course of the day. As you can see on his screen above he has been hunting – that is a real live turkey his game camera caught a pic of last week. But no, Hubby did not get a turkey except for the picture. He does take his phone out with him hunting. Last week it was with him in his blind (it’s a little camo tent), and it will go up into his tree stand with him and just while he walks around in the woods doing whatever it is he does. He gives the OtterBox Defender series a giant thumbs up and so do I because it keeps him from destroying his phones!
Oh, and I do not have a photo of it, but the OtterBox Defender comes with a holster case too! Hubby wears this on his waist/belt and he says it is very secure there. When he is in the car for a long period of time he can clip it onto the visor in his car also.
The folks at OtterBox rock – great folks, great service, great product.
