    Quality, highly protective case IF you’re OK with added bulk…, December 25, 2011

    This review is from: Otterbox Samsung Galaxy Nexus Defender Case – Black – Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    Just want to start off this review with a disclaimer: Otterbox Defenders are known to be bulky compared to the “skin” style cases such as the popular Diztronic Flexible TPU Case. This review is written with that in mind — I’m not knocking this case’s size, because we’re all aware of that going in.

    And in answer to another question that is sure to arise, YES, this case is compatible with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 2100mAh Extended Battery & Cover. The extended battery comes with a replacement back for the phone that results in perhaps an extra millimeter of thickness, making the fit of the Otterbox Defender snug, but just so. It fits.

    If you’re in love with the subtle curve of the Nexus’ screen, a word of warning: this case makes it disappear. As you can see from the photos I’ve added, there is a slight curve evident when the phone is set, face down, on a flat surface. But the bulk of the case really makes the phone appear to be dead flat up front. The back, however, attempts to maintain a bit of the tapered curve, and even has nicely rounded edges that make this monster more comfortable and natural to hold.

    The case is actually four components, as follows:

    1. There’s a hard plastic “inner” case that is actually two pieces, a front and a back that snap together around the phone. This hard plastic has cutouts appropriate for the display screen, front & rear cameras + flash, LED notification, speakers & mic, prox sensor, headphone & MHL (USB) port, plus the volume rocker and power button.

    2. Glued into the hard plastic case is a “thicker-than-mylar, thinner-than-a-credit-card” screen protector. That’s right, it’s a rigid plastic screen protector, and it can’t be swapped out.

    3. The whole plastic shell is wrapped by a substantial rubber boot. The edges of the boot engage with a channel around the face of the plastic shell to “lock it in” and, for the most part, give it a very integrated look. The rubber has two very pronounced solid rubber block protrusions that carry button presses down to the power and volume switches on the phone. Cutouts are present for front and rear mics, camera & flash, rear speaker. Rubber flaps cover the MHL and 3.5mm audio jack, and these flaps are held securely closed by channels on the hard plastic shell. The back of the rubber is lightly textured for improved finger grip. The rubber itself is soft and not overly sticky/grippy, so it doesn’t give me too much of a problem in my pockets whereas some silicone cases tend to grip pocket material — as in the actual cloth in my pants or jacket — making inserting or retrieving my phone a nuisance, and collecting pocket lint in the process. The Otterbox rubber *mostly* doesn’t have a problem with that.

    4. Lastly, there’s the holster, which is, in fact, optional. The phone snaps in securely, either facing out or facing in, and the spring loaded belt clip rotates a full 360° to allow the whole contraption to be worn in any orientation. To round things out, the holster doubles as a desktop stand and holds the phone in a not-quite vertical landscape orientation, for media consumption.

    One benefit of having a phone as thin as the Galaxy Nexus is that a relatively bulky case such as this can be fitted without causing the phone to resemble a paperback book. And without the holster, my rubberized Nexus still slides easily into pant, jean and coat pockets.

    But let’s talk about some of the negatives:

    – The holster blocks the 3.5mm audio jack — so no wired headphones if you’re using it as a desktop stand.
    – The case covers the 3-pin connector on the side of the phone. But considering the phone with *any* case will never fit into a Samsung desktop dock or vehicle mount that might make use of those connectors, it’s a bit of a moot point.
    – I’ve noticed the hard plastic frame around the screen obstructs the movement of icons and widgets to the next left screen on my Home page. It’s just in the way by maybe a millimeter, causing me to have to “re-grab” the icon closer to its right edge to be able to force it on over to that next page. A minor annoyance that doesn’t affect day-to-day use, except for when I’m rearranging icons & widgets.
    – The rubber cover is just every-so-slippery, and with the extra weight added to the phone (mine now weights 210 grams / 7.4 ounces with the case + extended battery), if I’m sitting around lazily ingesting a longer YouTube clip, the phone…

    Great Case, crappy holster, July 3, 2012
    By 

    This review is from: Otterbox Samsung Galaxy Nexus Defender Case – Black – Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    The case itself is great. It has protected my phone through many many drops, bumps, kicks, and oppses. I’ve had several Otterbox cases and holsters over the years. Every single holster has had the tab snap after about 6 months. This one snapped last week, after having the phone almost 6 months to the day.

    They need to either make better holsters, or increase the warranty on them substantially.

    The phone case is great and very robust. The holster however is not. The catch that holds the phone secure in the case snapped after only a month of use.
