    I’ve tried a lot of phone cases. They break easily or they are inconvenient to use or they don’t protect the phone very well . The OtterBox case is the last one I will ever need to buy as long as I have this phone. It is lightweight, protects well, all of the ports and switches on the phone are easily accessed. It is still fairly thin but protects well. The OtterBox case costs a little more but is well worth it. It has paid for itself considering all of the cases I purchased before finding the Otterbox. Otterbox has cases available for most cell phones in all different colors.

    the defender is way over the top. Commuter is a nice compromise for the protection conscious minimalist, but still a lil bulky for my taste.. I finally decided to just purchase apple care + and not worry about it

    I've been using Speck cases and never had an issue. I've dropped my phone a million times.
