The protection this Defender Case offers your phone... is the best! I have dropped it more times than I can count(it seems)!! The rubber shock absorbing outter coating is genius because it really does help absorb the drop, a bit bulky but WAY worth it! The screen protection is awesome as well! You can just put the phone in the case without having any other screen protecting cover on the screen(like the sticky clear type) and it protects the screen perfectly with no hesitation on the touch screen at all. Great protection!
