    I have to admit, the otter box's cases for iphone 5 havnt been as good as in the past. I have the commuter in blue on my phone now and the silicone is faded and stretched a bit but today I dropped my phone from about 5 feet (maybe more) onto the cement floor in wal mart. It landed flat on the back of the phone and made a horrible SMACK sound that even made the cashier say "ooohhh is it ok?" There isn't a scratch or a crack on the case!

    I really like the Commuter too. I have two Defenders also but I prefer the slimness and outer plastic of the Commuter and am still very confident it'd protect my iPhone from some bad drops.

    I know, me too but lots of people are criticizing them for being low quality and the flaps do wear out and the silicone fades but who cares

    The Commuter gives good drop protection. By the looks of it, it may end up providing better drop protection than the LifeProof. :eek:

    It is good for drop protection, thinking I might pull my defender back out and use it with my own screen protector to keep away dust and scratches
