    Otterbox Defender - Worth it?

    I just got the Razr Maxx today and am considering getting an otterbox defender and dropping phone insurance. My Droid held up fine without a case but ended up a bit worse for wear, I didnt need to use the insurance on my last phone and it does not seem to be worth the cost over time. I had two friends that had defenders for their iPhones in college and it seemed like they did the trick. My question is do I need to go as far as the defender or could I make due with the commuter. For work I plan on getting into law enforcement but for right now I dont have a job that requires the extreme protection of the defender, although I may in the not too distant future. Personally I like the sleekness of the phone but protection is priority (dont feel like having to buy a new phone).

    Any suggestions?

    I like the defender. I always put otter box defenders on all of my phones though. I don't know of a case that works a well as the defender IMHO. Its worth the money to me, just be forewarned that it's hard as heck to get open at times.

    without a doubt
    especially for me being a contractor my phone is subjected to some serious abuse
    saved my dx from destruction so i bought one for the maxx immediately
    the screen protector is a bit soft and gets scratched
    but you can remove it and use a different one really easy

    Scratch the Defender and get the Otterbox Commuter. Its way less bulky and i can use this phone as a hockey puck if i needed to. With the commuter its also still thin enough to fit in most pouches

    I hear the Commuter is better than the Defender.

    I think the defender case is still pretty slim and it does come with a holster which I use. I don't know if the commuter does?

    I have the OtterBox Commuter with a ZAGG invisibleSHIELD. The commuter to me appears to be slimmer than the defender. One of the big difference between the defender and commuter that I noticed (besides size) is the feel. The defender is a plastic case that is wrapped in a rubber boot. The commuter is the exact opposite. So the defender gives you a better grip/hold whereas the commuter is plastic therefore you don't have a good of a hold on it. The commuter is easier to get out of pocket because the rubber boot grabs onto clothing.

    Either one would be fine, my only suggestion would be using a ZAGG invisibleSHIELD instead of the screen protector provided with either the defender or commuter.

    Definitely go with the commuter. The defender is way too big. The commuter gives you the same protection and you can actually still put it in your pocket. It's not a brick that requires a clip to carry it around dangling off your belt or pocket like the defender size is.

    I've had them both. Otterbox is the best. Defender offers the most protection, and is virtually bulletproof. Commuter, slightly less so, but much slimmer. In my opinion, construction, farming, law enforcement, etc, you'd be better served with the defender.
