    Some friends and I went on a long hard hike. Afterwards saying good bye's, we were taking our group photos at the cars. Stupidly, I laid my iPhone 4s face down the the rear roof of my CR-V and forgot it was there. I drove on heavily curvy backroads and in some instances at speeds up to 65 mph..... for 23 miles. Upon arrival at my home, I couldn't find my phone and in a smack on the forehead moment remembered leaving it on the roof of my car, at the hiking site, in sprinkling rain. With the aid or a fast thinking friend and a find your iPhone app, we located the phone! Still operable and sending out a beacon! Upon arrival, I shuddered to look. Laying face up on the side of the road was my fully functioning phone nary a scratch.. Not a ding! It was protected in a OtterBox Commuter case that has already taken it's share of abuse and guess what? The case has 2 small cracks and some scrapes but still fits! I called OtterBox to share this story and the super nice lady further made my experience delightful! A company committed to full customer service! I'm SOLD! I fully believe the rubberized inner membrane kept the phone from sliding off my roof all those miles. If the Commuter does this well, what's the Defender capable of?

    Bad molding defect and fatal 30 pin connector flaw

    Just got this case for my iPhone 4S. It appears to protect nice and works with the case docks I got but I have two issues with it: 1. Lots of molding material on both the silicon and the plastic wasn't correctly trimmed...so I had to try my hand at it. Ugly ejection mold seems and extra material on the plastic I had to carve away to get the silicon and plastic to mate..because some plastic edges we bigger due to bad cleaning of product after it came out of the mold 2. Serious design flaw with the dock connector opening and gasket. A. Plastic shell opening isn't physical big enough to correctly connect the apple branded analog video cable to the iPhone to hook it to a TV. Opening is too small above the connector to allow this apple-sold, branded white cable to pass through the case and connect to the phone. B. The dock gasket is seriously designed wrong. Who puts a flap at the bottom of the case that only goes backwards (where there's bound to be less room in all mounting situations) but also both the plastic shell and the case only allow the gasket to swing out 90 degrees....uh what the heck? In all situations I need the dock connector for why would I want to increase the height of my iPhone during docking by the entire length of the gasket which can only stick straight down and out! If I bend the gasket back more it tears. Also the gasket was slightly torn already from the insider corner right out of the box! So right there you have a weak spot that continued to rip as I used the gasket. I ended up having to cut off the dock gasket which really peeved me off because I needed the protection but if I cannot hook anything to the port then I cannot use or charge my phone! Which is more important. Next time this case is redesigned here's a brilliant idea: allow the gasket to move 270 degrees away from the seated, sealed position! Move toward the user, not away, and test your plastic covers opening size with all currently sold apple cables!! Obvious poor QC on manufacturing and bad usability design on dock cover and opening size. I planned all my docks and car mounting around this case. Case works fine but the above issues leave me sour. I could forgive the gasket being a hassle but wrong opening size and restricting gasket movement is uncalled for! I mean yeah, it's not like people need to use that dock connector every night or anything...:-) Otterbox shouldn't have there trusted name attached to this product...

    Comments about Otter Box OtterBox Commuter Series Case for iPhone 5/5S, Black:

    This case is like armor. I'm very rough with my phone and have even dropped it several times. The OtterBox case offers complete protection and has saved me the trouble of having to fix and/or replace my phone. I'm a definite fan and will purchase this product for every phone I own going forward.

      Comments about Otter Box OtterBox Commuter Series Case for iPhone 5/5S, Black:

      I had purchased an Otterbox from the phone store when I originally got my iPhone 4S. It was one piece, all silicone and provided "good friction". I keep the phone in my shirt pocket and other covers were too "slick" and the phone would fall out when I bent over. First I bought an Otterbox Defender thinking it would be the same thing, it wasn't. The sides were the same type of silicone, but the back was smooth. It didn't stay in my pocket nearly as well, and the lens cover gets moisture behind it and it keeps the unit from working as well. I decided to buy the Commuter and it turned out even more slippery with the plastic insets on the side. I suspect that Otterbox changed the design because people probably complained that the Original was too hard to take out of their pocket, which was the feature that I liked! When I upgrade to an iPhone 6, I probably won't buy an Otterbox.

          The Otter box cases for the I Phone are very dependable and durable. Have dropped the phone numerous times and the Otter Box case protected it from damage.
