    I caught this little teaser as an ad and found it interesting. I'm just as exited about the new cases as the acknowledgement of the new iphone. Anyone see this yet? If that's a defender it definitely looks a bit thinner and less boxy.

    Yep saw the teaser box this morning on the blog but I don't use otterbox so it was not that interested although I am sure since they needed a change across the line it will make many people very happy. Thanks for pointing it out to us.

    I saw these as well! I ordered a Commuter last week in Bolt. I'm glad I got it when I did - I don't see the orange color in the teaser!

    That was the first color option I purchased as orange is my favorite color. So much so I have the real tree camo defender on my phone now. I don't care for the camo but love the bright orange. I carry my phone screen out so I barely see any camo.

    Maybe they'll finally get the silicone right. That's my one gripe with Otterbox is that the silicone outer shell stretches badly after only a few times taking it on and off.

    I'm very interested. Have always had an Otterbox on my iPhones. Was going to get a grey silicone for my green on but I'm for sure waiting until the new phone and box. Curious about the improvements since they acquired lifeproof.

    Which one do you have. I have several for the iPhone 5 and have taken them on and off over 20 times and they have not stretched out.

    Ditto I've taken mine off countless times and have never stretched them all'you must be yanking the off causing them to stretch don't know anyone with those issues.

    I've never had a problem w/ stretching either. I'm not saying this is always the case but I think a LOT of people buy fakes on Amazon, eBay, etc. and aren't aware of it.

    I've never had to use them but I've always heard Otterbox has great customer service. If it's stretching without much use and it's authentic I would imagine they'd swap it out without too much trouble.

    Aye. That was especially a problem for the 4/4S boxes. It got better with the ones for the 5, I believe they said they used a different treatment on the material, but it is still a thing.

    Sorry for the double post. Still getting used to the new Tapatalk app.

    The CS from Otter is really good so there should be no issue there. A rep from them explained to me that pulling and yanking isn't an issue as much as oil and grease is. They seep in to the material and cause it to lose its rigidity. That makes sense if you figure that some people take the cases off a lot and never have a problem while other people do. People with oily hands or those that work jobs where lubricants or moisture are common will see their cases stretch out more than others.

    As I said in my other post, sorry again, they've used a new treatment on the material to alleviate the problem.

    Definitely had this problem with my 4S Commuter case.

    Sucks because the defender will probably be useless to me since swiping back in menus etc will be much harder and the fingerprint sensor will be disabled.

    I'm excited about a new reflex though that's for damn sure.

    Wow, that's something that didn't cross my mind. That could certainly be an issue for a lot of people.

    I don't yank them off. They stretch around the earpiece. I can take them off by using a different part of the silicone and they still stretch to the point where they're unusable. That's my only ***** with the Defender cases for the 4s.

    And my cases are not fake. I bought them all from OB.

    Hopefully they will not allow the device to move as much in new cases as they do allow in the iPhone 5 case.

    Yeah, that's what I've been using since it came out. I LOVE it. I no longer worry about dropping my phone, getting it wet, or getting oil slicks on the screen. And I actually prefer the bulk. This thing is a tank.

    I have tried a few slim cases but I put them on for about 5 minutes, get nervous, then put my Armor back on.
