Ive been an OtterBox fan for a long time. They all provide great protection, which is the primary reason I buy them. They are all made of well fitting, high quality materials with a nice color selection. I do, however, wish they were a bit less bulky, but understand a thin cover offers less protection. On this model, the slipcover around the charger is very thin, so frequently opening the flap to charge the phone may eventually weaken that area. Sometimes the slip cover stretches and doesn't fit snug, time will tell on this one. Otterbox warranty and customer service is the best, so if anything goes wrong they will take care of it.
