Product Details

OtterBox Defender Series Glacier iPhone 5 Case, Model 7722118

The Defender Series iPhone 5 case is the only case for demanding conditions, heavy use and random accidents. Three layers of protection include a polycarbonate skeleton that cushions the iPhone while the built-in screen protector prevents smudges and scratches. The outer layer wraps around the solid inner shell like an epidermis, creating a practically indestructible iPhone 5 case. A belt-clip holster is included and doubles as a media viewing stand. The Defender Series case for the iPhone 5 will protect your investment from drops, dust and other accidents. Why do you think we named it the Defender Series?

Features:

  • Rubber plugs cover the main openings of the iPhone 5, including the charging port, headphone jack and volume controls
  • Full access to all the features and functions of the case, including all buttons, microphone and camera
  • Three layers of protection include a built-in screen protector, polycarbonate inner shell and rubber outer slipcover
  • Redesigned holster has a slimmer profile and the belt clip has a smooth ratcheting motion

I switched to the iphone 5 from a Galaxy S3 because I was unhappy with the fragility of the Samsung, and wanted something state of the art which was made from more durable materials. I work as a geologist, so my phone is constantly going in and out of my pocket to check emails, make calls, and take photos. I am also often outside in bright sunshine. The Defender case is a beast. There is no sacrifice in screen viewability with the plastic protector in place. The case more or less doubles the thickness of the phone, while adding a minimal amount of bulk to the sides and top. When I first got the phone, I was shocked at how light it is. The naked iphone 5 feels like a toy to me. With the Defender case on it, it feels much more substantial. I feel fully confident to take this phone into the field with dust and dirt everywhere, while at the same time I can take it with me to social functions as it still fits comfortably in my pocket, and I can manipulate the phone one-handed. Overall, the feel of the case is great, and the build quality is outstanding. I will likely end up cancelling the insurance on my phone, should this case continue to perform as it has. I have supreme confidence that the Defender case will protect my phone from more than just your average wear and tear. The thing is designed to take a beating, while keeping your phone safe from drops, dust, mud, and the occasional splash of water

I've been an OtterBox case user since day 1 of my iPhone 3G. That expanded to my iPhone 4, my iPad 2 and now my iPhone 5. There is no question that my OtterBox Defender case for my iPhone 3G and iPhone 4, saved my phones from destruction on multiple occasions. So as soon as the Defender case for the iPhone 5 was announced for pre-orders; I bought one immediately. I had the case before my phone arrived. That being said, I can't recommend the Defender case for the iPhone 5. This is the first OtterBox product that I've been disappointed in, for several reasons. - It doesn't completely enclose the device. Previous versions of the Defender iPhone cases, had sealed plastic covers over the front and back camera openings; thus protecting the camera lens from scratches and moisture. The Defender case for the iPhone 5, has no protection over the front and rear camera openings. This opens the camera lenses up to dust, dirt, scratches, etc. Because there are two openings in the case, that are not covered by the rubber outer case (there are plugs that cover the buttons as well as the headphone and sync ports), there's a greater chance that moisture and dust can get inside the two-part case and scratch the phone without your knowing it until it's too late. -The advertised kickstand/easel feature of holster doesn't work. I've tried it on my holster with the clip in multiple rotated positions, both with the phone in the holster and without. I've applied way more pressure trying to make it engage as is shown in the product video; than should be necessary. I've tried this with 2 other iPhone 5 Defender holsters; with the same results. I've also had the owners of the other two cases/holsters try to lock the belt clip into the 'kickstand' position; to try and rule out me doing it wrong. Neither of them could do it either. -The built-in screen protector for the front face of the phone, does not lay flat against the screen. When I tap an app icon or type on the keyboard, there is noticeable give/flex between the case screen protector and the iPhone 5's screen. This give/flex makes the touch screen response much less sensitive; and drastically increases my typing error rate with the on-screen keyboard. I've removed and re-installed the iPhone 5 into the case several times, looking very closely for something that may not have been seated correctly or something out of alignment that may have been keeping the screen protector from laying flat against the screen. I could not find any way to make it better. This issue may very well be the thing that makes me switch to a different case. The decreased screen sensitivity and the typing mistakes caused by the movement are extremely distracting and frustrating. -The flap on the bottom of the outer rubber case, that covers the Lightning sync port when not in use; is very difficult to hold out of the way to install the cable to charge the phone. Once the cable in plugged into the phone, there is more pressure exerted on the Lightning connector than I think there should be. The new Lightning connector is very small, and there is no data yet on how robust the socket in the iPhone 5 or the plug on the end of the sync cable is. I don't think the case should put as much torque pressure on the sync connector as it does. Overall, the design of the iPhone 5 Defender case/holster feels like it was rushed. I'd rather OtterBox have taken a little more time to have a product ready; than have produced one that does not live up to the standards of previous iPhone Defender versions.

          I have only used Otterbox to protect my iPhone, and it has saved my phone numerous times from damage. I drop it all the time, even on gravel, and it never has broken. I love the design, and will get another one in another couple years!

                I love everything about this case. I would buy this over and over and would recommend it over and over. It's a little bulky, but the protection it provides plus its warranty is well worth it.

                          I bought a otter box defender when I got my iPhone. Being a blue collar guy I was afraid of breaking my expensive phone. I can't tell you how many times the defender saved my phone from harm. The bonus is the service you get from otter box. After about 13 months of brutal use the rubber seemed to stretch out a little and the plastic was a wee bit loose in one corner. I filled out a form and took 2 pictures and emailed them in and BOOM the next day a brand new defender was on it's way to me. No questions asked.It's now protecting my phone. I will never buy a different brand case again!
