Rated 5 out of 5 by from No longer a leader in the best protection game Thought I was buying a fully enclosed case as they USED to be, instead got a case that now has no real advantage to any other brands open faced cases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Defending the Defender! Rugged yet slim. Protective yet not limiting. Functional without also being gaudy! This Otter Box like it’s predecessor, protects your phone from you the user, in preventing damage to the phone. I don’t know about you, but I drop my phone likely once a week, and in all of the years, I have used Otter Box Defender series cases, I have never had a damaged phone. Why would you not protect your expensive investment so that you do not have the inconvenience and added cost of having to replace the phone. Otter Box also has a great warranty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boy this case saved my phone Yea it did not do it alone I had a temper glass shield with it that my cell provider provides. I dropped it in the middle of the road a busy main road. When I noticed it I had to stand there and jest watch it get hit after hit until I could get it when the cross guard said so the case looks terrible around the screen but the phone that it was protecting looks still new except dust but that was probably not from the incident

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't Plan On Using Your Magnetic Charger I would not buy it again. Does not work with the iPhone 12 magnetic charger. Both my wife and I tried to use it with our new phones and magnetic charger . It would not work with the Otterbox cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and dependable case This is a very good case. I used one for years with my iphone 6, and then now again with my iphone 12. Two minor "complaints" : 1 I dropped the phone in its belt holster on concrete and the holster broke - perhaps not a fair complaint, and a replacement is reasonably priced. 2) I dropped it on concrete because, the small lip on the holster belt clip which prevents the holster from being lifted up from the belt is a little to narrow, such that it doesnt really grab on to thicker belts too well. Overall, these are minor complaints, and Otter Box is an excellent company and makes an excellent product - would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like this case except for one small problem. Minor problem when I charge the phone and open the protective cover, the bottom of the runner outer case keeps pulling out of the plastic assembly groove and has to be pushed back in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as ever, alpha glass fits w/case I was super skeptical after reading reviews. Almost went with another case based on reviews. I’ve rocked an otterbox back to the iPhone 7, and have never been disappointed. The defender for the iPhone 12 is crazy great. Less bulky then previous cases, which is a bonus. No, there is no screen protector. Bummer. Despite other reviews, ALPHA GLASS FITS THIS CASE. Bubbles, yes. Just work them out. I just did it, took me maybe 5-10 minutes start to finish, case back on with no issues period. Thats what actually prompted me to review...i never review stuff, but didn’t want anyone to shy away like I almost did. Everything fits; line up screen protector correctly when installing, work out bubbles (which sucks, but not hard), put in defender case, done. I’m so happy I went with my gut on this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from iPhone 12 Pro Otterbox Defender case review I bought this case for my iPhone 12 Pro. It is an excellent case with one exception. The Otterbox defender case for the iPhone 6s came with screen protector included. Now the screen protector is a $60 upgrade. I find a $60 screen protector for a $60 case a little over priced. Had the screen protector been $15 to $20 that would have seemed fair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the otter box case I have had otter boxes for my last two phone and loved them. The design was great for protecting my phone and easy access to the charging port. This iPhone 12 plus case has fewer colors to choose from and the biggest issue is the port to charge the phone. All the other ones had the flap to charge open from the front to the back. The new one opens from the back to the front. I can see the charging access flap wearing down fast and break off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect! All it needs is a line of bright Orange around it. My old one was like that and it made it so easy to find at a glance. I would have given it five stars if it had that. I used that old case from the day I bought my iPhone 6. I actually broke the case but my phone was fine. Six years later I have bought an iPhone 12 and would not go without an otterbox case for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointed I have bought the defender series for my last 3 phones, and always spent a little extra for the best level of protection. I am disappointed that this case doesn’t look as stout as I’m used to, and even more so that it doesn’t even have built in screen protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great protective case. A very good case. In fact I had a Defender for my previous iPhone but this one has much better protection. The only issue I see with it although very minor is it’s a little difficult to take off the case if you want to service the phone. It’s on there fairly securely but I guess that’s a good thing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only Otterbox for Us We’ve only used Otterbox for our iPhones and have never been disappointed. After upgrading from an iPhone 8 to a 12Pro, it was a surprise that the new cases do not have an integrated screen protector. The salesperson at the phone store applied a separate glass screen protector when we purchased our new phones...he made it look easy, but I think we would’ve struggled a bit on our own. The combination seems to be working great so far, but I cannot comment on its durability. We’ve never suffered so much as a crack with our Otterboxes before, so I trust that this is a quality product, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best cases ever Every time I buy a new phone, I insist on buying an Otterbox Defender specifically. They are hands-down the best cases to truly protect your phone. I am clumsy and drop my phone all the time. I've *knock on wood* NEVER had any damage to my phone because I protect it with this case. The Defenders are by far the most rugged, most truly protective cases and worth every penny. Even though I use my phone a lot and beat it to heck, I typically only have to buy a case once for each phone, even if I hang onto it for three or four years like I did with the last one. One note for possible improvement: I wish you could choose to buy the phone without the big plastic belt clip or with it. I never use the clip, I don't need it, and I always feel very wasteful just throwing it out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Otter Box case I have had, of many I bought this case because I have had good experiences with other Otter Box cases in the past. I had my previous iPhone X for 2.5 years in an Otter Box case and was able to trade that phone in for its full used value. The new Otter Box I have for my iPhone 12 Pro fits very well and appears to be very rugged, so I am ready for another 2.5 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protective and great color I purchased the defender case in Berry Potion for my new iPhone 12. I love the color. It's very rich and not flashy. The case is very durable and protective of my new purchase. The only thing that I don't love is that all openings are covered such as the mute button and charging point. This just means I have to open those every time to access them. It's not a deal breaker for me but I would have been happier without extra protection in those areas. I also had to go online to find a video to know how to install the case. The video was excellent if you need help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable case I only buy otter box cases. I had the old defender case and dropped my phone many times and it was in pristine shape when I traded it in. I am hoping this new version will be just as sturdy. I do appreciate that it is less bulky and I much prefer having a glass screen cover to the plastic of the old case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Defender Series I have purchased several defender series for my iPhone 5 thru 12. Each one has provided the excellent protection to my phone as advertised. Through five different phones, none have ever been damaged during the course of my construction career. On the Defender case for the 12, I wanted to be able to use the MagSafe charger. What I didn't know is that this particular case does not come with a belt holster (clip, so I was forced to order another Defender style that included a holster. I will continue to use my Defender case with the holster, but wish OtterBox would make a holster for the MagSafe case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poor design for iPhone 12 Every iPhone Otterbox I've purchased previously i.e. iPhone 7 and earlier... the defender case has a built-in screen protector. However, the iPhone 12 defender case no longer has a screen protector. This is a serious design flaw in my opinion since the screen is much more vulnerable to damage. The engineering of the defender case should have been designed to include a necessary screen protector. Now I have to go and purchase an aftermarket clear screen protector that will be less safe For my screen than my previous defender cases because of this I cannot give high marks for the iPhone 12 Defender case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels Great. The rubber on this case feels super. It feels like a tire wrapped around my phone. The pattern on the back looks durable so it won’t fade or scratch off. The back is nicely padded and had a smooth feel. The buttons all work perfectly. I don’t think this case will work with the magsafe wireless charger. The clip on belt holster is secure and functions as a stand. Holster itself holds the phone both ways so you can protect your screen with it. Missed the mark with no MagSafe compatibility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed I have used Defender cases for a decade. I was shocked and disappointed when the new fade arrived. The case doesn’t protect the screen! Couldn’t believe it since they always have. I will likely NEVER buy a Defender case again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not as protective as previous design Bought 2 for my kids to protect their new phones and selected Otterbox due to how happy I was with defender case for my husband’s Xs Max. The new 12 case is sleeker in design, but only beveled at the top and bottom, and pretty flat at the sides. One kid dropped his phone flat on the face and cracked the screen shield I placed on it, which will already need replacement. Not the protection I was hoping to get unfortunately. Please rethink the design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn’t fit well with screen protector I bought the iPhone 12 pro defender case a month ago. I was disappointed that there were very few colour options compared with years past. The design is pretty sleek and it feels nice in your hand. It also shipped ridiculously quickly over the holidays. I’m not sure how well it will protect the screen from cracks as the lip around the screen edge is very shallow. My biggest issue with this case is that it does not work well with the screen protector. I got the amplify Pro iPhone 12 glass screen protector from Otterbox to go along with the case but the two do not fit together. The edge of the case is constantly causing the edge of the screen protector to pop off. They are not really designed well to be used together which is disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PROTECTING MY INVESTMENT Purchased about a month ago. So far so good. Case is slimmer that I thought it would be. Less bulky the the on I purchased for my Iphone 4 and Iphone 6s. Besides being slimmer it is also missing the plastic screen protector the previous cases had. So, I will have to purchase a screen protector separate. Time will tell how the case holds up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective protection affordable price Case looks attractive but is not so bulky as to change the feel of the phone dramatically. Included belt clip works very well and make the purchase feel like a good value. Lack of a screen covering means you really need a separate screen protector but I don’t consider this a drawback. The last two cases I had from Lifeproof had plastic screen protection as part of the case and I never liked the feel of that. Would definitely purchase this system again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s a better than average case I’ve always used Otter box for my iPhone’s. I like the protection. I don’t mind the additional bulk it gives the overall profile of the phone. You get used to it and don’t notice it. It’s worth the protection. The plastic frame of the case (the part under the silicon can be a little challenging to take off at times. But, nothing that can’t be handled. I don’t like that the newer cases don’t come with screen protection. The older cases (like for an iPhone 7 Plus) came with a plastic cover for the phone. Now, you have to get a separate screen protector in addition to the Otterbox. For example, my Otterbox defender foe my iPhone 12 Pro. I have a separate screen protector film in addition to the Otterbox case. Other that the screen protector m, the cases are perfect.

When I upgraded to the iPhone 12 pro I tried a few different cases but wasn't happy with any of them. Decided to spend the money for another Defender case and am glad I did. Right away I knew it was what I was looking for. After using it for a few weeks I still feel the same. The grip is comfortable, it's not too heavy or bulky, the covered port and switch are a big plus and are easy to work with. I feel confident that my iPhone is well protected and that piece of mind is worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Bad Let me start by saying I’ve trusted Otterbox with every cellphone I’ve had for the past 8 years. The Defender Series has saved my phone’s life so many times. This one for the iPhone 12 Pro isn’t bad. It’s much slimmer than Defender Cases in the past. I wish the ridges or bumper were a bit deeper where the screen is. The one for the iPhone XS was much deeper and I felt comfortable if my phone fell face down. Now I’m kind of scared that if the 12 pro fell face down, it could potentially crack the screen since it’s so thin. I’ve paired it with the otterbox blue light screen protector. It fits perfects. I hope they come out with a defender series with the built in pop socket. It would be super convenient for those of us with small hands and larger phones.

My Defender arrived the same day as my new iPhone, and I'm pleased to see the same quality and attention to detail that I have come to expect from Otterbox products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the feel of the case in my hand I had an OtterBox case for my 6S, and it lasted two years before the charging flap finally fell off. I use it hard, in dusty environments, so I knew I needed one for my 12. I love the feel of it in my hand--it seems to be a non-slip material, which is great for me. The only issue was trying to get a screen protector to fit. There is still an air bubble in one corner, but I can live with that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only 1 concern I love Otterbox. My phone is always in one. I only have one concern. I’m a little nervous that there is no shield covering the screen. Yes, I know all about it being unnecessary but in my world things can and do happen. Every phone I’ve ever had was in perfect condition when I upgraded. I’m hoping that will still be the case. The price is a little high to not have screen protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not compatible w/ all Qi wireless charging systems I recently upgraded my phone and case (previous otterbox case to an iPhone 12 mini and Defender Pro case. It clearly called out wireless charging compatible, however, upon receiving my new phone and case, the new case will not allow charging via my 2020 Toyota's Qi charging station. Ironically, my previous phone and otterbox case worked perfectly fine on said Qi charging station. I know it is the case because i took off the new case on placed my iPhone 12 Mini on the Qi charging bed successfully. Lack of testing let to an inferior product. Not good Otterbox.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Lifesaver This is the 5th. Otterbox case I have purchased and could not be happier. I recently purchased a brand new I phone 12 pro with the Otterbox Defender case. I literally had my new phone a day with the Otter box case and dropped it on a grocery market store floor. Once again, the case literally saved me from disaster, since the phone cost $1,109. I would DEFINITELY recommend you purchase the Otter case to protect your I phone, or any other phones.

(Only downside is that MagSafe doesn’t work, but I can live without that.) I previously had an Apple clear case and it just didn’t feel right in my hand, which I attributed to the extra weight and size of my new phone and started having buyers remorse, but after getter the Defender case I *love* my new phone. It feels just right! Thank you Otterbox.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great case but issues with screen savers My husband had this case on his iPhone 8. When he upgraded to the 12 Pro we purchased another one to fit his new phone. The redesigned case does not have a front screen. The Verizon rep made us aware and we ordered the amplify glass screen saver. The edge of the glass pulled away everytime we put the case on. I called Otterbox and they sent another glass screen saver and that one also pulled away from the phone when the case was put on. Disappointed in the redesign.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, but where is the front plastic? As usual, I swear by Otter box products. I work in the oil field and my phone takes tumbles, drops and smacks on occasion. So why not get the best phone case on the market. The only problem I have is that the front plastic is gone from the phone case. I feel that if this is a heat issue, there may be something additionally wrong with your phone. I recommend the case but don’t like the new style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointed Just purchased my Defender Series Case for my iPhone 12. I’ve had the Commuter Series for years and years and chose to move to the Defender for the extra protection. The plastic “frame” snapped as I was trying to install it. The plastic part is different from the plastic that was on my Commuter case and it seems so much more fragile! All in all the case once installed seems like it will protect my phone. I had my iPhone 6 forever and the Commuter kept it brand new through my drops and bangs. I’m also not thrilled that I have a pretty berry case with a black cover/clip. Wish you color coordinated it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Defender Saved my Phone Twice I’ve been using the Otterbox Defender for several years now to protect all of my iPhones, and I would never consider using any other phone case. The Defender has saved my phone on two separate occasions. The older ones were a bit clunky, but the new one is slimmer, which I like better. My only complaint is that there are hardly any colors to choose from for the Defender, and I don’t really like any of the colors that are available, and it’s always been that way. But, I still use it, though, because of the protection it provides. The lack of color options is the reason for a four star rating, instead of five.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Ran Over My Phone Okay, so...today was just an awful no good, very bad day! I hopped up in my big Jeep Wrangler and my phone must have slid off my lap onto the parking lot at work. Unknowingly, I took off to move my vehicle to a closer parking spot. I RAN OVER MY PHONE!!! I searched frantically in the Jeep looking for it and even went back inside my work place to see if I’d left it there. I then realized I must have dropped it in the parking lot. I did the short drive of shame to go see if it was there and what was left of it. To my surprise, it was indeed and had been ran over. *yikes*! I picked it up and upon first observation, the screen looked mutilated. I got back into the Jeep to do more investigation. To my surprise, I was able to peel back the glass shield on my screen to reveal a perfectly intact screen! *whew* But, I felt like this was too good to be true, so I took the case off to fully observe the bare phone. It was perfect. I can say, the Otter Box plus the glass shield is apparently tough enough to be ran over. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from “Second To None” Since the advent of the IPhone, I have only used Otterbox products, the Defender Series, for my device. It is, without a doubt, the best case on the market. Why, you ask? Because it allows you to actually have a firm grip on your phone, while using it. In addition, Otterbox makes sturdy cases that will protect you phone, like no other. Get an Otterbox. Don’t be fooled when vendors say, “oh, it’s just like an Otterbox, not! It isn’t and you will be wasting your money. All the best and order your Otterbox today. You will be glad you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lip around screen is not adequate I understand the decision to forgo the screencover -- this definitely allows for a better user experience. What I do not understand is why Otterbox did not design a lip surrounding the screen that raises 3 - 3.5 mm above the screen surface. This is the design used on previous Commuter cases, and which afforded excellent screen protection (with no built-in screen protector. If the concern was that the raised edge might interfere with fine editing at the screen border, the 3 mm lip could have been graded down from the outer edge to the current 1mm-high lip on the long edges of the cover. Another concern is that the current lip consists largely of hard plastic in direct contact with the hard glass screen. With the earlier Commuter, nowhere was the glass screen in direct contact with rigid plastic. Rather, the screen was first protected by a thick, shock-absorbing layer of rubber, which was reinforced and held in place by a hard-plastic outer shell. I am not convinced that the current Defender design is very protective of the screen. The screen deserves a lip that's just as protective as the lip around the rear multi-camera assembly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horrible Product This is my sixth OtterBox and will be my last unless the Company improves the product. I loved all of my previous OtterBox cases as they came with a screen protector that didn’t need to be glued to the phone’s screen. The entire reason I got the Otter Box for $60 was to protect my screen, but only the outside cover came, and the website was not clear that it was not included. The screen protector, another $60, was a total waste of money. The first one came all cracked as it was just put in a flat envelope without any cushion to protect during shipping. In order to get a replacement, I needed to talk to Customer Service, and it took over 40 minutes to get someone on the line. Installation of the screen protector wasn’t easy as shown in the video. The screen protector didn’t line up correctly, and every time the OtterBox case was put back on, the bubbles would appear. I pressed bubbles to the edges with the squeegee, and they were not there prior to putting the phone back in the case but will show up afterward. I had to redo it three times, and it’s not easy to take the phone out of the plastic OtterBox shell, the bubbles still appear on the screen. Horrible product, I would not recommend it to anyone!

I’ve tried a few other screen protectors in combination with the case but the case pushes the edge of the screen protector up and creates unsightly bubbles, especially at the corners. Otherwise, same ol same ol. Protects my phone well enough. Got 5 years out of my iPhone 7 thanks to the Defender, hopefully I’ll get 5 out of my iPhone 12 with these cases too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best All-Around Protective Case I have been searching for different types of phone cases for my iPhone 12 Pro. I just wanted something that would protect my phone and screen without being too complex. The OtterBox Defender Series has accomplished just that. I was very impressed by the durability and engineering that went behind the design of this case as it forms exactly to the phone without compromising access to any of the phone's ports or features. The only suggestion I would have is that although I would not classify this case as bulky as it is just the right balance, but I would say that the footprint of the case is larger than my previous case.

Unfortunately the “screenless” defender is the breaking point. With the old defender I could always buy a new otterbox case and replace my rubber and screen when they get too worn. I need a phone with a full seal to keep my rough fingers and dust from getting into the phone. I could really care less about the wireless charging or the gaming aspect with quick touch. Otterbox needs to continue their line for those who work in manufacturing, construction, shipping, and materials. Our company. What I and several others want from Otterbox is full phone protection, and a belt clip, this includes a screen which we can replace at ease when scratched and too dirty. Otterbox please come back to us that you have forgotten about. I can no longer refer fellows workers and family towards this specific case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not the Same I don’t like the new defender, I buy otterbox because it used to be the best protection. Now that it no longer has a screen protector it is no longer as good and I won’t be buying anymore

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good functional case I love Otterbox cases for the protection they afford my phone, and this one is pretty good looking and not too boxy. I do wish they offered more color choices. Also, the phones are available at retail stores at considerably lower prices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good case I feel really secure with how protected my phone is by this case, the silicone being on the outside of the case makes for a better grip than the old defender styles that had the silicone on the inside, the one downside to this is that if you use a pop socket or other grip accessory that attaches with an adhesive it won’t work with this case, I had to buy an additional accessory from pop socket to use one on this case. Additionally better coverage around the cameras might be nice, rather than just having the case create a recessed pocket over the cameras maybe a fitted covering around the camera would be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horrible Product This is my sixth OtterBox and will be my last unless the Company improves the product. I loved all of my previous OtterBox cases as they came with a screen protector that didn’t need to be glued to the phone’s screen. The entire reason I got the Otter Box for $60 was to protect my screen, but only the outside cover came, and the website was not clear that it was not included. The screen protector, another $60, was a total waste of money. The first one came all cracked as it was just put in a flat envelope without any cushion to protect during shipping. In order to get a replacement, I needed to talk to Customer Service, and it took over 40 minutes to get someone on the line. Installation of the screen protector wasn’t easy as shown in the video. The screen protector didn’t line up correctly, and every time the OtterBox case was put back on, the bubbles would appear. I pressed bubbles to the edges with the squeegee, and they were not there prior to putting the phone back in the case but will show up afterward. I had to redo it three times, and it’s not easy to take the phone out of the plastic OtterBox shell, the bubbles still appear on the screen. Horrible product, I would not recommend it to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not as Good as Previous Versions The case is much sleeker than previous versions which is nice with an iPhone 12 Pro. Not having a screen protector built in was a slight retraction but I have always loved the quality of Otterbox and chose to get a Defender again. The plastic cover is SO flimsy. Mine has already cracked which has never happened with other versions. The plastic inner housing as always held. Not so with this version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely disappointed I’ve had at least 5 defender cases over the years. While I did know this one does not have an integrated built in screen protector, I am still very disappointed that it does not. I am used to carrying my phone in my hand, purse, pocket and holster. I have already broken one screen protector in the month that I’ve had my iPhone 12. So now I have to be extremely cautious all the time. Maybe otterbox can change their mind and offer a built in screen protector. Their other brand is overkill for my needs. I am not an underwater sports person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charging with Defender Plus I have an iPhone 12 Pro Max with an Otterbox Defender Plus. Initially it did not work charging on a Anker Wireless Charger, PowerWave 7.5 Stand. I verified that it was the Defender by taking off the rubber case and placing it on an Anker Wireless Stand/Cradle and it worked. I had bought the Anker Charger, previously, for my iPhone XR and worked flawless with it's Otterbox Defender Plus Case. So, I just expected that I would just use the Apple Lighting Cable for charging. Since Anker Cradle was just sitting there, I turned my iPhone upside down and placed it in the cradle, The charging light turned green. I disconnected the lighting charger and it is still charging on the cradle. So, it's not elegant, but it works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and functional iPhone case I have been using my Otterbox Defender case on my iPhone 12 Pro for over a month and am delighted with the protection, ergonomics and functionality of the case. It provides a highly protective case without too much bulk, an excellent non-slip grip, and the three-piece design makes it a piece of cake to install or remove from the 'phone. The port covers work very well and do no present any impediment to switching modes from silent to ring or inserting a Lightning cable. The Defender accommodates a screen protector with ease and the additional belt-clip piece when installed over the front of the iPhone makes a bulletproof screen cover. I utilize USB-to-Lightning for charging since I have a house full of legacy charging solutions, so I haven't missed wireless charging that some users have reported non-functional or impaired with the case installed. All in all, an excellent case and I would certainly purchase it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product The only disappointing thing about the OtterBox cases is before the cases always had a plastic or glass scree. Now the screen is glassless. The screen is most important part of the OtterBox case. That outterbox product has now taken a step back by not having the built-in screen and a little disappointing. Other than that it’s still a fairly good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fixed What Wasn’t Broken I’m not sure why Otterbox changed the design of the defender, but it was a mistake. I don’t care about the screen protector not being part of it, I actually prefer that so I can use a glass one. The slimming down of the case made it terrible. Squeaks and doesn’t even fit together. It felt like it was going to break when I was putting the plastic frame around my iPhone 12. It also didn’t snap together with my phone inside so the fit was terrible. I know two people who had the defender for an iPhone X and XR and those cases are the normal defender. They fit nicely and provide protection well; they aren’t this slimmed down piece of flimsy junk. Also the fact Otterbox charges for return shipping is disgusting and outdated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect For starters, I have the iPhone 12 Pro in pacific blue. I originally had a clear case to show off the phone’s color but scratches on the case became a problem over time. I wanted to find a case that would give me top notch protection and compliment my color choice in my phone and this case certainly does both. The case itself did not give me any issues with the screen protector already on my phone during installation at all which was easy as could be. I have not noticed any issues using it with some of my wireless charging accessories at all despite the multiple layers of the case. The door over the toggle switch to go from vibrate only to ringtone mode has presented a minor challenge as others have said but for how often I am changing this I have barely noticed the issue. For colors, the green hard shell case inside the teal neoprene is a sort of a lime green which I think compliments the teal nicely as an accent. Looking through the camera hole on the back the blue of my phone and the teal of the neoprene look darn near identical and blend nicely. Overall I am very satisfied with yet another Otterbox purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aggravated it doesn't come with a screen protector I've purchased Otterbox for as long as I've owned iPhones and this is the first defender I've purchased with without the screen protector built into the case. It's aggravating that you spend the better part of $100 only to find out you need to buy more protection for your phone. Would not recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charging problem I love the protection that OtterBox provides, the only problem is that I can't charge my iPhone through the back of the case. Also turning on and off the silent mode is hard if you have big fingers like I do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I miss the old one! I hate this case. I've had a Defender for all my iPhones since the 5. Always an amazing case. I usually would pop the plastic out and have a glass protector installed. Personal preference. With THIS case (iPhone 12 pro, my screen protector bubbles like crazy. I feel like the case needs to be re-made with wider dimensions. One disappointed Otter fan here
