This is a very good phone case. I would highly recommend it. It is light, slim, and protects every piece of my phone. It comes in three pieces: A rubber insert that fits snugly around your phone, a hard plastic outer shell that fits around the rubber insert, and a high quality screen protector. It also comes with a microfiber screen cleaner and a small card to push the bubbles out of the screen protector. It is not waterproof but does cover all the holes and plugs in the phone with rubber plugs.
That being said, there is one slight design flaw. Since this case is particularly unique because of the unique phone it is designed to hold, it contains a small design defect on the hilt joining the top of the hard case from the rubber insert. After about 10 months or so, it begins to crack along this seam and eventually will break.
One definite plus is that Otter Box has amazing customer service. They replaced the entire phone case (and the screen protector absolutely free.
Although there is a small design flaw, I must admit that this case has been worth every penny. Living in the rocky mountains, my phone (with this case) has gone up Fourteeners, been dropped off of 6 ft. rocks, fallen out of a mountain bike, fallen off tables countless times, gotten wet, and more.
The silicone and plastic back do not mesh as well as expected, screen cover difficult to put on. Other than these two cons, I cant think of anything. I appreciate the lack of bulk the case has as well as the accessibility to charge port, camera, rear face buttons
I love, love, love this cover. My new LG G2 is the first smartphone I've owned and I didn't think I needed a cover. But the first time I dropped it (it survived), I went online and started researching. OtterBox reviews were consistently good, so I went for it. The cover was very easy to attach -- first the rubber covering, which makes a nice lip around the front for safety in laying down the phone face-first, and then the hard plastic back pops on over the rubber. Both parts of the cover went on easily and fit tightly. All the cut-outs and access areas are perfectly located for this phone - my camera works fine, I have access to back buttons, the plug-in places at the bottom have little "doors," and the speakers are perfectly exposed. It comes with a screen cover too that required some care in placing, but works very well to protect the screen. The OtterBox does add some thickness to the phone and a tiny bit of weight, but I'm amazed at how safe it feels now to really use my phone -- I hadn't realized how cautious I was being before. And now that I've been using it for several weeks, I don't even notice the difference in depth or weight. My phone with the cover attached still slides easily into and out of pockets in clothing or bags, and now the phone is fully protected from scratches or bumps or drops during carrying or transferring. Also, the design of the cover is really nice and it feels good in my hand. I am definitely now an OtterBox loyalist.
This is my second Otter Box, I had my Galaxy in an OB and now have a new LG and immediately got an Otter Box for it. Phones are a big expense and otter box is the way to go to protect it. I just wish Otter Box provided an extra screen cover with the purchase. I have found that is the part that takes a beaten and really shows, so glad it is on the phone protecting the screen, a back up to change it out in a few months would be nice.
This is my second otterbox..I upgraded my phone and my old case would not fit...! week after my new phone was purchased I dropped my new phone off the desk..NO New screen for me..It was protected..Best investment ever...I have more friends who need new phones after one drop.
Pros: High quality, Durable, fashionable colors

Had the case on the phone for a month now, the case is cracked near the charging port.
I have an LG G2 and bought the commuter series otter box to protect my phone. Looks good. Haven't dropped it to see if it protects yet. Everyone who calls me hears an annoying echo. I called my provider and they suggested I take off the case. As soon as I did, the echo was gone.
I love the cases from Otter Box. Mine broke at the bottom where the charger goes and all I did was go online and follow the instructions for the warranty and received a new case no questions asked. This lifetime warranty is defiantly worth the large price tag along with keeping my phone safe. Thank you Otter Box.
