OtterBox Commuter iPhone 4 Case Review Listen to this article

OtterBox’s flagship case, the Defender, provides an unparalleled level of protection. But not without a price. The Defender is considered by some to be big and sometimes even bulky. What isn’t up for argument however is OtterBox’s quality and the level of customer service they put behind every one of their cases. The company understands that the Defender isn’t for everyone and that’s why they’ve developed three levels of iPhone protection.

The recently released Commuter Series case for the iPhone 4 is OtterBox’s mid-level protective case. While the Commuter doesn’t provide the same amount of shock and impact protection as the Defender it does offer a decent amount and it comes with port protection built in.

The Commuter Case consists of two pieces. An inner shock and impact resisting silicone layer which gets covered by a scratch and bump protecting plastic shield. There’s a cut out for the Apple logo but it’s not covered which means if you’re concerned about the keeping that logo looking mint you’ll want to place a piece of clear screen protector over it. OtterBox includes a crystal clear screen shield kit with the case as well.

Available now from OtterBox for $34.95.
