A really good case all in all.
I had a Griffin Survivor for a year but it was too bulky and made the touch screen very unresponsive. Also you had to pop open a fiddly cover to use the camera which was a pain. This case seems better in every way and is so much thinner than the Griffin. But you do give up some protection for usability such as over the camera lens, around the headphone socket and charging port. The touch screen, volume buttons and home button work fine with the case fitted. It's very easy to fit.

Perfect protection AND disguise
The otterbox is the ultimate in protection but you already know that otherwise you wouldn't be looking at it. Just in case though, YES it is extremely good at protecting your phone. Most importantly though it does something extra. It utterly DISGUISES your iPhone 5. I had occasion this weekend to put this to the test. Someone else was showing off their iPhone 5 nearby so I brought mine out and said, 'snap!'. He laughed, 'I don't think so.' He said. When I proved it was an iPhone 5 he was mildly taken aback. I told him that my iPhone 5 was better than his, which got his interest. I told him that whatever I did with my iPhone 5 I could do it better than him doing the same with his iPhone 5. After we shook hands on the bet I threw my iPhone 5 as hard as I could to the ground. Yup. The otterbox rocks.

Rugged multi-layered case withstands heavy impact damage
Designed to provide ultimate protection for your iPhone 5, the Otterbox Defender series is comprised of layers with different protective material properties. Firstly, a two-piece polycarbonate interior shell holds your iPhone 5 securely in place, adding extra rigidity and strength.
Additionally an outer rubber slipcover fits snugly around the inner shell to provide superior shock absorbency, dissipating impact away from your device with added bump and shock protection.
Built-in screen protector prevents scratches
Built within the polycarbonate interior of the case is a thermal-formed screen protector with an anti-fingerprint coating. This helps to prevent damage to your screen without impeding the sensitivity of the touchscreen.
Silicone port covers keep out dust and debris
The charging and headphone ports within the Defender series case are protected by silicone plugs that keep out unwanted dust and grit.
Includes detachable belt clip holster/ kickstand
With every Defender case come a detachable plastic holster with a belt clip. This allows you to attach it firmly to your clothing or belt for easy access and the smooth ratcheting motion of the clip also allows the holster to double as a landscape viewing stand for your iPhone 5.
