I'm not super hard on my phone, but I do drop it... a lot, and my Otter Box has kept my phone safe and sound. It's nice being able to not freak out every time my phone flies out of my hands or pocket for some unexpected reason.
As always, there is a trade-off for great protection, the power on/off button is more difficult to push (not like this really hinders life in any way).
Also, if you want to text using the "swipe" way (slide your finger from letter to letter and let the phone decide what word you're saying) you have to push harder because the screen protector pushes up a little and if you don't put enough pressure you'll end up with a bunch of short words that make no sense instead of the long word you were going for because your finger will have lost contact with the screen and your phone will have thought there were spaces where you intended none. (I hope that made sense) However, this problem gets exponentially better the longer you have the case because you break it in and get used to the new feel of everything. I hardly have this problem anymore after having my case for two weeks.
Overall, totally worth it! I just went outside, threw my phone above the roof of the second story of my house straight up, watched it land, and had no worries it would be fine. And it is!
Pros: High quality, Durable

Issues Swiping through screen protector

There is a noticeable bowing outward on the screen protector "film" of about 1/16in that makes it nearly impossible to accurately swipe. Is this normal? If so, is there anyway to compensate for the lack of swipe capability? I've heard great things about Otter cases and am a little disappointed if this is indeed the "norm." Thanks!
I had the same problem when I first got my case. After having it for a few weeks now, I've broken the case in, and that bowing isn't really there any more. If you continue to text (or whatever else) the way you want to be able to, you will break the case in to your own personalized needs. Also, I've found keeping my nails short makes texting using the swipe method easiest. For now, if you just press harder when you do it, everything should work out=)
