    This review is from: OtterBox Commuter Series Case for iPhone 5 – Retail Packaging – Punk (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    Bottom line: The Otterbox Commuter case is great protection for your iPhone 5 investment. And it’s sleeker and lighter than the negative reviews might lead you to believe.

    My highest priority was to protect this $400 gadget from damage. I also have preschoolers who are additional risks to anything fragile! Check.

    At the same time, I wanted something with good design that would fit unobtrusively in my pants or shirt pocket. Check and check.

    Also wanted materials that are durable. Time will tell, but my initial analysis indicates check.

    FYI, I compared to the Otterbox Defender, which offers more protection, but is bulkier and more noticeable in my pocket. Also compared it to several different Speck cases, which appeared to offer similar protection at the same price, but did not come with a screen protector. Plus, the Otterbox color combinations, from black/white to lime green/navy, accommodate a range of tastes.

    The criticisms in other reviews appear overblown. Regarding on/off switch stiffness, this isn’t a factor at all. The case fits the phone perfectly. I didn’t notice the “rough” edges on the bottom back because I don’t hold it there.

    In my four years of owning iPhones, iPads and cases, my experience is that no case is “perfect.” If you want solid protection without too much bulk, this case is worth your consideration.

    I was a little hesitant to order this when I read other reviews. But overall, I really like it and I’m glad I picked this one!!

    - I see what people are talking about with the edges being a little high and I suppose that could get in the way of typing. I don’t really notice it though. I had a defender case on my old iphone 4 so if anything, I find this case to be a lot easier to type with.
    -The screen protection that it comes with is NOT built into the case. I did not know this when I ordered it but I like it. It makes it much easier to use because it is the sticker type screen protector. Again, I was used to the defender built in protector so I guess this could be a negative for some people, but I am happy with it.
    -The new rubber material is great! It feels a lot stronger than previous otterbox models. It is also smoother.
    -I like the plastic being on the outside of this case vs the defender series!
    -I also like that unlike the defender you can actually see that I have the white iphone5!!
    -The new port covers are much better designed than they used to be. They actually stay closed when not in use. My old case the port covers were always open because I could not get them to close.
    -The only part of this phone that I do not like is that the open circle on the back to display the apple is actually open. On my old phone it was open, but it had a protector covering the hole to prevent scratching. With the iphone 5 being easier to scratch due to its design, to me this is a bit of a flaw with this case. I am worried that after some time, the back of my phone is going to be scratched up where this hole is. This is the only reason that I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5
    -Lastly, I really like the colors!! I ordered the punk and it’s a fun bright color!!!
