I just got an Otterbox defender series for iPad air 2 , i love it. It's really a nice protective case. I have been using it for two weeks now and I found the following : 1- back cam need to get a bumper cover for more protection when not using it. Well the griffin survivor case does have that. 2- speakers need to get covered with a layer of cloth just like the survivor. 3- 2 mics need to be covered with a protective cloth layer just like the griffin survivor case. 4- hard to fit a huge lighting cable. 5- when u plug the headphone jack the bumber presses against it and I think that might cause problems later on. 6- hard to unplug headphone jack since the whole jack in inside through the case.
