I tend to be hard on my phone, so I need a great case. I've gone through two OtterBox Defender cases for my iPhone 4, and my wife saw the new Armor case for my iPhone 4 and purchased it as an early Christmas present. I love the case and the quality protection it gives my phone. I don't plan to throw the case out of a window or anything like that, but i've dropped it and pushed it off my desk a few times already. I use a few different chargers with my iPhone and iPad, I wish I could use them all with this case. But this isn't possible with most non-Apple chargers and cords. Sometimes I just take the iPhone out of the case and charge it at my office. Then return it to the case once charged. It is easier doing that with the Armor case, than it was removing my phone from the Defender case. (Quicker) I haven't figured out how to carry it yet. I was using the holster with my Defender case (it would regularly fall off my belt). So sometimes I carry it in my bag, pocket or my wrist. The case is big and bulky, but it works. Either way, won't leave home without my Armor Case. Like it!
