I love Otterbox products and this is the third product I have had from them and will continue to use them, wait for it....BUT, the OB case for the S4 Active has a couple issues. Nothing major but very frustrating. 1) Somehow, some way, the front plate of the case blocks the proximity sensor even though you can still see that darn thing. You know have to press the home or power button to get the screen to light up during a call. Screen will auto darken but will not light back up as you pull the phone away.
2) The screen protector does not sit flat against the screen. When the case is assembled, the screen protector becomes convex and then texting becomes an experience that may leave some people throwing their phones into the wall. Good thing they have an Otterbox ;) Everything you touch is selected twice or even three times which makes composing a message next to impossible.
3) The lower end of the rubber sleeve that cover the home, settings, back buttons does not sit flat. It lifts up beneath the lower bezel of the plastic face plate allowing all sorts of dust and debris to enter. It seems worse for me as I cannot use the belt holster because the belt clip digs into my side and is very uncomfortable.
All in all a nice case, but not for the asking price. I ordered directly from the website not a third party.
Pros: Durable, good hand feel, adds comfy weight to device, makes device easier to hold
Cons: design issues, lack of color options

Will the Samsung Galaxy S4 Defender series case fit the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active?

Before I make a purchase and it won't fit I would like to know.....
Negative. The S4 active is a touch bigger and has the three physical buttons on the bottom which the S4 OBDef. will not accomodate.

Will an s4 active defender fit inside the regular s4 belt clip/holster

I have s4 active but I lost my holster and I only see replacements for regular s4. Was just wondering if the holsters were the same
No unfortunately it will not. I just tried it the other day lol. The S4 Active Defender is just a touch to bulky to fit into the S4 defender holster.
