    I hate to order something I have not seen in person. Any views on the Defender?

    Coworkers love theirs. One, always throws his phone across the room to prove how great it is.

    IMO it's the only true protective case worth having. I love mine.

    One of the best cases I ever had. I don't used it all the time cause of added bulk, but when I do it's great to have that type of protection.

    When I'm not using Otterbox Defender, I have on a one piece Speck case.

    I love mine. My one issue is that the camera slots are no longer protected on the 4S version, but Otterbox said it degraded the image/video quality.

    If you need the protection this is definitely the case to get.

    I'm a machinist and need the best protection I can get. I'm very happy with the defender. I don't use the belt clip and don't mind the bulk in my pocket. My only issue is I wish they had screens to cover the mic and speaker areas. I tend to get debris build up there.

    Although I'm with AT&T I use Verizon screen protectors with my Defender because they're the only protectors that can fit with the Defender. Protects the camera with larger camera slots and front speaker/proximity sensor area.

    I used to use it daily, but I don't use it anymore since I don't feel that I need all of that protection. The case adds a lot of bulk, but it really makes the phone much more resistant to drops.
