    Seems to be made COMPLETELY better than the 4s version. Significantly thinner , like the iPhone 5.

    Since I won't have my iPhone 5 for a few days it's good to know how it'll feel in my hands.

    Actually feels like an otterbox commuter but more sturdy. No rubber grip back which is good as well. it'll hold up well until I get the life proof case.

    wasn't expecting it so soon.... Thanks Verizon

    I will never go back to using the otterbox defender.

    Besides the cheap plastic screen protector that I always remove because it makes the touch so awful, the hard plastic presses directly up against the phone. So you drop your phone, it's slamming against the hard plastic. I removed the defender after having it on my iphone 4 for a few months, and the hard plastic pressure spots from the hard plastic caused scratches.

    Instead, I go with the incipio duo dualpro and sgp glas.t screen protector. The iphone touches the SOFT plastic, then the hard plastic wraps around that on the OUTSIDE.
