STACK Approved: OtterBox iPhone 4S Defender Series Case
December 3, 2011
Looking for a holiday stocking stuffer? OtterBox, known for its protective solutions for handheld devices, has some great looking cases for the iPhone 4S. We recently put the OtterBox 4S Defender Series case with Realtree Camo to the test, and it passed with flying colors.
The company's trademarked Realtree Camo design, wrapped in orange plastic and black rubber, is an eye-catcher for those who want to show their individuality. Most iPhone cases are rather nondescript. The Realtree design will appeal to fashion-conscious folks who have a penchant for camo.
We like the fact that the clear cover is part of the case. How many times have you tried to get rid of those annoying bubbles caused by air trapped under your screen protector? With the 4S Defender Series OtterBox case, you no longer have to worry about that.
Although the case may seem bulky for such a sleek device, its high-impact polycarbonate shell and silicone lining make it as durable as a case can be. We weren't crazy enough to perform a drop test, but like most iPhone users, we watched it take a few natural falls onto solid surfaces—and it survived without a scratch. And the Otterbox case comes with a belt attachment for easy accessibility.
To summarize, the Defender Series Realtree Camo case looks cool and contemporary; has a bubble-free clear cover front; and offers powerful protection. With a retail price of $60, it's a solid investment and an attractive holiday gift idea. The Otterbox iPhone 4S Defender Series case and several other protective products can be ordered at the company's website.
