Pros: Very well thought out and designed case, It protects my phone!
While I can easily place my Blackberry Curve 8330 in my uniform shirt pocket, there is always the danger of damaging the phone during a scuffle. After evaluating several cases I could secure on my duty belt, I decided to give the Otter Defender a try. I was immediately impressed by how well thought out and engineered this phone case is. The inner hard shell protects the phone from a crushing blow. The outter rubber case that slides over the hard plastic case - besides keeping everything snug and in place - makes the phone feel more substantial in my hand. It no longer feels like my Blackberry will squirt out of my hand. And what I especially appreciate is the Otters perfectly placed access cutouts for the camera lens and connections. The original belt clip holster that came with my Otter Defender did secure properly on my duty belt as it is more suitable for a standard dress belt. And here is another feature I especially appreciate about this case. You can slide the phone into the hoster either face-in or face-out. This is a huge benefit for us street cops because if you are doing a building search or conducting a surviellance in the dark, there is no danger of being snitched off by that pesky blinking phone light or sudden screen activation. Whomever designed this phone case really knocked it out of the park. And Ill close with this... I liked it so much I bought a second one. If you are a 911 or construction employee, the Otter Defender is a MUST HAVE. And it is worth every penny.
