      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      One of the best cases - I fully recommend it.

      I recently purchased the Otterbox Defender Series Military Camo case. The quality of it is supreme. There are so many aspects, including warranty and design, that I actually need to divide the sections up:

      -------------------------------------------
      Bulkiness, Dimensions and Weight
      -------------------------------------------
      To be fair, many people have went up to me and say that my case is bulky. They are correct, since the case is thick enough to hide the sleek, aesthetically-pleasing design of my iPhone 4S in white, with the thickness being roughly 1.7cm for me with Amazon.co.uk confirming that. However, this seems weightless, at only 50 grams for the case itself! This is a premium case, as far as I can tell. You will get used to the bulkiness, as I made the conversion from a thin, unprotective plastic Air Jacket plastic case to the Otterbox Defender case quite easily. It is not ugly at all, despite what some people may think after viewing an online image of it.

      ---------
      Design
      ---------
      Amazingly, underneath the silicone and the design, there is a Polycarbonate "case", which is essentially a wireframe. You place your iPhone inside and you have three 'clips' where you press together until you hear a click, signalling that your iPhone is safe inside your case. Once the Otterbox case is snapped to your iPhone with the included screen protector glued to the polycarbonate part, you fit the silicone part in. Two layer protection. Very efficient.

      The buttons are very easy to press, which I wasn't sure about until I got it, due to my experiences with the also-protective Tech21 iMesh case.

      ------------
      Features
      ------------
      I have to say, the features are unique and surely the patents Otterbox have reinforce my statement. There are port covers for the 30-pin port, headphone jack and the mute button. The volume buttons and the power button, including virtually everything else not mentioned are covered without option by the silicone.

      Here's the important part: The Defender Series for the iPhone comes with a screen protector glued to it - This means that it will be kept clean! Also, the Apple logo has a transparent plastic layer (also attached to the case) covering it, ensuring that the iPhone itself is dirt free.

      ------------------------
      Extra Components
      ------------------------
      Here's a neat feature as well - You get a hip holster for your Defender as well, which explain why you have an intentional hollow part in the side clips of the iPhone. It essentially allows you to clip the Defender case with the iPhone inside onto the hip holster. The removal is easy.

      ----------------------------------------------------
      Otterbox Warranty and Customer Service
      ----------------------------------------------------
      Unfortunately, some people have defects in their cases. However, even if you throw your case away after it breaks, you can phone up Otterbox by the number provided on their website (Use Skype to call since it is a freephone US number) and their excellent customer service will ship you a replacement via FedEx without any hassle.

      Important Notice: Remember to keep your receipt as it is REQUIRED by the support agents in order to help you!

      ---------------
      Final Verdict
      ---------------
      This case, without bias, is the best one I have used in my history of using iDevice cases. This is definitely worth the price and not to mention, the protection is very efficient. Unfortunately, it isn't waterproof, so be aware before you dunk it in your bath tub while reviewing the case for a YouTube video. The installation and removal of the case is quite easy but can get a bit tedious as well.

      Congratulations to Otterbox for this amazing case.

      Side-note: As of writing, Otterbox are releasing the Armour series for the iPhone. Stay alert for notifications from Otterbox!
