First Otterbox, never will be without one again!
Date:July 11, 2013

Purchased the black Otterbox Defender case for my Samsung Galaxy S4. The hard portion of the case took a bit of doing to separate into its two halves...take your time and do as the instructional video advises. Once opened however, the S4 fit like the proverbial glove. The rubber outer case fits perfectly as well. The purchase the case gives to my hand is perfect, this will NOT slip out of my hand, no matter what!
Some reviewers have complained about losing their phone from the holster, it is very particular, that is true, but once the case is in, it is IN. No way will the phone fall out of the holster. Could it be designed to make alignment and insertion easier? I suppose so but I am not an engineer so I cannot say. If the owner takes an extra moment and feels the holster with his/her fingers it is apparent when the case is properly inserted. At the point of proper insertion, there is a tactile snap as it locks into place.
I, too, have noticed that dust and dirt do have a tendency to work their way under the openings in the front. When the screen becomes too annoying, I just remove the phone and clean the inside. Not a big deal, for me anyhow, YMMV.
Thanks, Otterbox for making such a fine case and keep up the great work!
Pros: High quality, Durable, great protection, fair price for what you get

Can I use a film screen protector as well as the screen protector that comes with the case?

I've had a film protector put on my phone and I'm just wondering if I can put the case on and it still function 100% with the other film on the screen.
I had the same question as you before I purchased my Defender case for my Galaxy S4 so I called Otterbox and asked. The answer I received from the Customer Service Representative was that there is no need for an additional screen protector as the Defender comes with its own protective screen cover. She also added that adding an additional screen protector may cause the case to not properly fit and also may make the touch screen more difficult to operate. Of course, YMMV.
