my precious z10 fell from my vehicle going 50 mph and remained unscathed all thanks to the otterbox :)

Pros: Great protection, great case, great quality, love the screen protector.
Cons: Clip holster sits up high, easy to knock device out. Narrow bezel area on bottom and sides.
This is a great case would recommend it to anyone who wants their Z10 protected. Takes getting use to, and the holster clip sits the device up high, and can easily be knocked out done it 3 times. Im learning to use the sides of my fingers more when bezel swiping, seems to help a lot.

Pros: protection, style
Cons: covers edges
i love defender cases, always have. ive used one on every blackberry i have ever owned however with the z10 it covers the side and bottom swipe bars and makes it very difficult to navigae.
Try another case.

Cons: Inhibits some essential swiping commands
Like others have mentioned, it is a very protective case BUT the design does get in the way of using the device. For example, while at a soccer game I wanted to be able to switch in between messages and my camera easily, it was extremely difficult to maneuver. I was so frustrated that I ended up taking the case off. If they could only slightly minimize the coverage on the bottom of the screen, it would be perfect.
protects phone but makes phone almost useless

Pros: heavy duty
Cons: makes phone very difficult to use. Bad design.
once defender case is installed you cant regularly make the required swipe on the phone because the case covers a key, required swipe area
