Screen protector stinks. A lot of watermark effects. In addition, it dulls the retina display a tiny bit.
I just punched out the protector and installed Zagg HD and then use the otterbox case around it.
The problem with doing above is the additional cost over an already expensive case!
Pros: Durable, great protection
Cons: bad screen protector

Seems to be of high quality. Nice design. Protective. Screen protector is of very high quality...best that i have seen in an integrated protector. No bubbles. No watermark. TouchID works fabulous...similar design to Lifeproof 5S cases. Camera seems to work fine.
Cons:
1. No holster.
2. Thicker than Lifeproof cases
3. Mute button is hard to work, but could be a good thing to avoid switching it accidentally. It is not a button i use often anyways. Other buttons are fine.
4. The openings at the bottom is not as good design as Lifeproof...charging port is very very small! You cannot have water resistance AND use earphones at the same time. It just seems bulkier to use the bottom section than Lifeproof.
Otherwise, i believe that it is of higher quality construction than Lifeproof NUUD (and horrible FRE). BOTH Lifeproof cases i had leaked after a few days of using it...condensation on the inside of case! I hope that this Otterbox is better design.

The original Commuter that i bought from Walmart was horribly bad. The silicone mold did not fit at all! I tried several others at Walmart...all no good. Otterbox sent me another one. The 2nd one fits perfectly.
The screen protector is actually quite nice. Crystal clear. Very smooth to slide your finger across. There is rainbow effect at certain angles, but this does NOT impact on the crystal clarity of the screen.
The hard plastic shell does have some semi-sharp edges, but overall, does not bother me at all.
Signal reception seems perfect with the case on.
Pros: Durable, screen protector
Cons: Low quality

Otterbox really outdid themselves this time!! Every aspect (weakness) of 4S Defender was improved upon.
1. The case is lighter (but NOT because of cheap quality)
2. The holster is perfect now...easy to install the phone...solid connection. (With the 4S case, you can place the phone in the holster and it would not lock right because it was slightly crooked.)
3. The screen protector is crystal clear!!!!!!!! Finally, i can see the Retina Display in all its beauty! Previously, i had to poke out the horrible protector and install a Zagg.
4. The case rubber/silicone is super high quality...way better than before! It feels like satin finished hard plastic. Fit is perfect...no loose ends.
5. Camera hole is huge!
Thanks again Otterbox...i had doubts before with the 4S case...but this one is out of the park in terms of design and quality!
Pros: High quality, Durable, crystal clear protector, high quality rubber, lightweight

I just got this Otterbox for my Iphone 4s (Sprint). It is what you have seen...a very well made product. Otterbox makes high quality stuff. And yes, i did get the updated design with the big camera cutout. Everyone can tell you the goods about the Otterbox. I am not here to repeat those things. I am here to tell you about ONE MAJOR FLAW:
The problem is that when you put your iphone into the holster, you better be sure that NOTHING is caught in it. In other words, if your shirt tail is in between the holster and the Iphone, then the iphone is NOT clipped in!! It may feel like it is clipped in, but as soon as you turn and your shirt pulls out (of the holster), your Iphone goes flying out! This happened while i was walking and i heard my iphone dropped to the ground. The case itself protected my Iphone well. I was lucky...not because the case protected my Iphone, BUT because i heard it fall! If i was in a busy building, then i would have lost my Iphone because i would not be able to hear my iphone dropping to the ground. So, these days, i have to conciously pull my shirt all the way up with one hand before inserting the Iphone into the holster with the other hand. 2 hand method. Forget about rapidly holstering your Iphone with this. Now, if you tuck your shirt in everyday, then you may get away with this Otterbox...but, be careful if your shirt is not tucked in tight!! A loose tuck can result in part of the shirt getting b/w the holster and your iphone....
Other minor negatives:
- The screen protector does dull the beautiful retina screen a bit, but functionality remains excellent. This was expected and i did not mind at all.
- Bulky...when i sit in my car and strap my seatbelt in, i can feel the holster/case pressing against my side hip bone...maybe a comfort issue on long drives.
- It is kinda hard to clip the case onto the holster, unless you slide it in perfect. Just a little to the left or right and you will not be able to clip it in.
So, i think that the product is very well made. The new rubber surround is very high quality. But, the flying Iphone issue has made me look for other alternatives. This is sad for me because i have high respect for Otterbox...i bought cases from them for my Ipod Touch 3rd and 4th gens.
Hope this helps.
Pros: High quality, Durable
Cons: flying iphone syndrome
