    Default Otterbox Symmetry Series Case

    Has anyone bought this yet? I think it was just released today, and it looks pretty sweet. I just bought a Spigen Slim Armor S, not sure if I want to shell out 40 bucks for this one. I'm tempted. Anyone else thinking of getting this?

    I like it but like you I don't wanna spend $40 on it right now. I'll probably pick one up when more colors are released. Reminds me of the Speck Candyshell.

    If I get tired of my Speck Candyshell Grip, I may pick up one of those

    I wonder how the case is on the outside. I recall the white Defenders got really dirty due to the material on the case. I like the white version of this case.

    I'm really interested in this case. Probably won't get one until I can inspect one in person. I'm thinking of getting the blue one.

    Picked one up today and I love it! It's like the perfect blend of the Defender and the Commuter, but thinner! The back is a hard plastic so even the white one shouldn't get dirty.

    I'll try to post some pics soon. It doesn't feel bulky to me but that's subjective. The back is textured similar to the commuter so it doesn't show scratches at all.

    It is! But it feels super solid with the phone in it. Already had a few drops and it's still going strong. Probably my favorite case so far.

    Unfortunately it doesn't. But it is thin enough to fit in a leather pouch clip that I already had.

    I've only tried it with the apple earbuds but my Square reader fits fine to give you an idea of how big it is. It's actually a rather big opening that should fit most headphone cables.

    How is the material at the bottom? Since it's not supported by the plastic do you foresee it getting loose and sagging at some point?

    It's a solid rubber material. Not flimsy at all. Since the plastic wraps around the corners the rubber doesn't really support any weight of the phone so I don't foresee it sagging in the future.
