I bought this case for my iPhone 4s because I just got my screen repaired. Without a case, the metal bends or gets scratched around the edges when you drop your phone. But with an otterbox, it doesn't matter how you drop it, theres no damage. You dont even have to really worry about it. However, it is bulky. Im a girl who wears skinny jeans, and my phone now only fits in my back pockets. And I have to make sure its really in there or it'll slide out. There is an included belt clip but come on, who actually uses those? I am disappointed that theres no screen over the speakers. I understand that it would decrease the sound quality, but I'd rather that happen than dust or water damage. Thats the only thing I'd change on the case. Its a good buy if you toss your phone around more than you mean to.
