Nice upgrade from the original iPhone 4 Defender case,

This review is from: Otterbox Defender Series Hybrid Case & Holster for iPhone 4 & 4S - Retail Packaging - Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)I used the original Otterbox Defender case for my iPhone 4s, and while it worked ok, this version is a definite improvement. The hard plastic case and the screen protector seem to be the same as the original, other than having larger cut outs for the camera/flash and the front camera/light sensor/proximity sensor area. I never had issues using the 4s camera with the older version case, but I did with the proximity sensor and this case fixes that issue.
The holster has been changed to update the release mechanism. The tab that holds the phone in the holster has been shaped differently in order to make the phone easier to clip in and release.
The biggest upgrade is to the rubber jacket that fits over the plastic case. The rubber seems to be of much higher quality. It has a firmer, more substantial feel, and doesn't seem like it will lose shape over time. It gives the case a better grip in your hand and generally feels more solid overall.

I wish there was something a little better,

This review is from: Otterbox Defender Series Hybrid Case & Holster for iPhone 4 & 4S - Retail Packaging - Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)This box is fairly good overall but it has a couple major irratating factors that may well be a buying point for many of you so I wanted to talk about a couple things that don't get mentioned very often.
+ Great Protection and pretty much the best case if you want ideal protection for your iphone 4s from drops on the concrete / outdoor working environment. That's why i got it.
- The screen cover is a thin layer of plastic that when sitting on top of the iphone creates a 'film' illusion where if you have good vision you will see a hazy layer. I think it's because there is a small space between the case's layer of plastic and the iphone's face that bends the light. Its quite annoying to me. I would prefer no plastic at all on the screen front and use a stick on clear protector over the iphone face.
- The headphone jack is closed by a plastic piece that lifts up but it's annoying to have to fiddle with it to put in headphones.
- The case... Read more

Very Sturdy and Excellent Accessibility to Buttons and Screen,
This review is from: Otterbox Defender Series Hybrid Case & Holster for iPhone 4 & 4S - Retail Packaging - Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)Ordered this product directly from Otterbox.com, and it took 12 days to arrive--not sure if that's because of a case modification/upgrade around the time I ordered the case.
The case arrived with instructions on the inside of the box, which were NOT very easy to follow. The box suggests going to Otterbox.com to view the instructional video. I didn't view the video and it took me at least 20 minutes to figure out how to open the case and properly insert my phone into it. Make sure to watch the online video.
Access to all of the buttons and screen is excellent, though there is a flap you have to lift to access the headphone jack. The case definitely adds heft to the phone, but I find that to be a plus both for protection and security (somewhat conceals the fact that the phone is an iPhone).
The case is extremely sturdy and there's no doubt that it offers excellent protection for the phone. The case may help parents relax when their young children want to... Read more
