PROS: This case was awesome. It is super strong. I feel like i can though it at literally anything and the box will destroy whatever it hits. It has a very cool design and cool colors. The buttons for me were not hard to press. If I wanted to take the phone out of the case i could do it with ease. Unlike the lifeproof, the screen protector is very flushed and it feels like i am actually touching the screen.
CONS:First i just want to say this case is not water proof, only water resistant. I took it surfing and body boarding and it held up great. Then i took it into a pool and water leaked in from the bottom speaker and now my phone is water damaged. Whenever someone sees this case they will immediately try to rip it open!! This has literally happened every single time!! They see the hinges and that there is a slit on the whole border of the case that separates the 2 parts, so their thoughts process is always "i must rip this open!" No one does this with any other case, just the armor series. Also, the case is a bit heavy. The speakers are a bit muffled when trying to talk to someone over the phone. The foam on the inside that covers the bottom speaker is junk and will rip over time quick. One of the foam circle pads on the inside of the case can be pushed and move up very easily over time.
VERDICT: This phone is a tank and will not break if dropped. It is only water resistant so do not be taking it into the water on purpose. Don't let others hold it for they will try to open it and that is not good for the case. Just get a defender series.
Pros: Durable, it is a tank, cool color
Cons: water resistant (not water proof), muffled speakers, strap is a bit weak, people always try to rip it open
