    But I had to break down and go get the bulky *** OB defender...

    I had the glass from shield on the phone and it cracked after a drop which they replaced for free ....

    But I'm rough with phones ... I drop a few times a month - I pocket them with keys etc ...

    What pisses me off is the OB isn't waterproof? I mean come on calling yourself the #1 case lacking that aspect is annoying ...

    I'll wait till the lifeproof case is testy though I refuse pay too much for it ...

    Apple is overdue to make a waterproof phone .... Also I think they'd have a huge profit to be made be developing a niche " rugged iPhone "....

    Overall not a terrible case this OBD and it gives me peace of mind for the most part.

    Ottterbox actually owns Lifeproof. So they do make a waterproof case, but the defender is not. Not everybody needs a waterproof case. It actually cuts down on call clarity. I had a Lifeproof for my 5S but rarely used it because of this. I honestly don't think a rugged iPhone fits apple. Everything they have is very elegant looking. I don't think a rugged iPhone would do this. Especially when people can buy a case to make it rugged.

    1) otterbox defender has NEVER been waterproof, that's what the Preserver is for whenever they release it for the 6

    2) you want a waterproof case like a lifeproof but you don't want to pay too much for it? You want protection like that, it's gonna cost more...that's life.

    I had the OB Defender bought for me as a gift. While it is bulky I will admit, it does do the job. I do think I am going to go back to my Tech 21 case and grab a tempered screen protector that Tech 21 makes now.

    They have one. It's called the preserver. And before that they had the armor.

    Exactly. My point was that they DO make a waterproof case because that's not what the defender is designed or intended for.

    Looking forward to seeing what they come out with!
