Otterbox [Defender Series] Samsung Galaxy S5 Case – Frustration-Free Packaging Protective Case for Galaxy S5- Black

I love Otterbox. No, I LOVE Otterbox. When I saw this come in for review I nearly did a dance for joy because, as we all know, they aren’t cheap. These things are like armor for your phone. I have dropped my phone, sat on it, threw it and all kinds of stuff while it had an Otterbox on it and never had a scratched added to it.

The problem with this “Defender” series is the screen protector portion. See, getting this thing apart to put it on requires supernatural skills – the same amazing skills are required to get it off once it’s on your phone as well. So, yeah, before I could even get it apart to put it on the phone, my finger went through the screen protector, so that part was broken.

It takes a little doing to get it on your phone. Maybe it’s because I’m not actually a superhero, but after a little grunting and a lot of cursing, it was on. I snapped the screen on it and the rest of it and…. then decided to see how well I could get it off.

Hahahahahaha… a bloody finger and more curse words later, it was off.

It’s on there now and I do have a regular peel and stick screen protector on it, so I never bothered to pick up one of the spares you can buy.

It’s a GOOD case, don’t get me wrong. I have never used the clip that you can optionally use with it, but it looks like it’s good quality as well.

However, if you do not have Hulk hands, you might want to look at another Otterbox series. This one means business and I don’t want to end up with stitches every time I need to open it up to take out a battery or whatever.

So, I love Otterbox. I will continue to buy Otterbox. But I will NOT be buying this series. I’m also thinking that when I buy a new case, I should probably just buy a new phone too because I’m not sure I can get this thing off again. *laughing*

Recommended for those that need series protection for their phones and don’t have a need to swap the case or remove it.
