Otterbox always offers the greatest is phone protection. The defender case is almost perfect.
There are some flaws, the biggest being the built in screen protector does not stay flush with the screen this allows dust and other crude to get under the screen protector around the middle button. Also you can feel the screen protector being raised slightly off from the screen when using the phone.
Also the silicon seems to stretch on the corners of the phone while this does not effect the function of the case it is rather annoying to look at.
How ever it does offer superior protection from most drops and scratches, the case serves its function and the holder serves as a stand for the phone also. If I could do it over I would get the commuter case with a HD screen protector and just miss out on the holder.
