It seems like I am finally getting off my ass and writing more these days, first things I have to do is get these OtterBox reviews out of the way. If you read the previous sentence again, you will notice that I said OtterBox reviews. As in more than one. That's because I posted one on AndroidDoes for the Samsung Galaxy S III. So my review of the OtterBox Defender for the Samsung Galaxy S III is on AndroidDoes and I actually have an extra one to give away. So head on over and enter! Now on to the good stuff.
Android, but I really like the way Apple handles things inside the walled garden and say what you want about Apple their hardware is really sleek and sexy and for the iPad and the iPhone, I've chosen to go with OtterBox cases to protect them.

The screen protector is bult in to the inner polycarbonate case, and it does its job very well. The crud that I wipe off that protector sometimes makes me very glad that I've got some protection on the phone, preventing scratches. However, sometimes the screen protector does this strange thing where it interferes with the touch with the iPhone. I can't always get it to happen, and it's random, but when it happens it's annoying as hell. Some people tear the screen protector off OtterBoxes as soon as they get them. My wife did that with her OtterBox too, but I don't want to risk scratching the screen, nor getting junk under the case in between the phone and the case.

I don't want you to think that the OtterBox Defender is a POS, in fact that's the extent of my complaints about the case itself. It comes with a holster that you can position on your belt. However, you don't look cool with a phone on your belt. Just saying. However, you can have the screen facing in or out, and the holster doubles as a stand. I've never used it though, it's sitting in a drawer somewhere, but it's nice to know it is there if I need it.
Use the ad that I've got in the post to browse the OtterBox selection at Amazon. You'll get the best price for the OtterBox (I paid $50 minus my corporate discount at Verizon.) The cases on Amazon are less than $30 and there are a ton of different colors to choose from. Get one, stop worrying about dropping and damaging your device. OtterBox FTW!
