I have always recommended Otterbox if someone asks. I researched all sorts of different protective cases for my phone before deciding on Otterbox. Ever since I got that first one, I have always gone with them since and find several different stories from other people as well how it saved their phone. With smart phones being so expensive and fragile these days, it is a must to protect yourself. With them getting smaller and more ports the cases are going to be harder for Otterbox to make. Keep up the good work Otterbox! Huge fan.
