I have been looking for a case that had a protective shield for my Galaxy 4 mini without any luck. When I bought this product I was disappointed. The cover is plastic and keeps falling off. It also makes it difficult to see the screen. I hate it and would not recommend it to anyone. I actually would return it but the screen is no longer in good shape because it keeps falling off in my purse. I am still looking for something of quality with a glass shield for the screen.
Ordered this cover on the strength of the name Otterbox.....first one just did not conform to the phone, but amazing and personable customer service sent me another quickly which fits perfectly - thanks so much!
This is the third Otter Box product I have bought. All of them have been excellent. The delivery service to New Zealand was incredible. Five days from order to receipt. I have just taken my old phone out of it's Otter Box for the first time in two years and it looks like a brand new phone. I only have one very small complaint. It is difficult to switch the phone on and off without adjusting the volume. Once you get used to this it is not a problem however.
Bought the Commuter Otter Box for my wife and myself. Good product except for the screen cover. We still use the Samsung screen cover for both phones. This product works great for my wife as she carries her phone in her purse or pants pocket. As a business professional I carry a Case Logic leather belt case. The Otter Box would not fit in my case so I have to keep using my Body Glove phone cover. I don't like large phones to have to carry around all day so I use the Samsung s4 mini. Would love to see an accompanying leather case to go with this product or a similar product. The Defender comes with a belt clip but just doesn't look very professional. Great protection, but not professional looks. Would love to see Otter Box R&D design a complete carrying system with phone case and leather (or simulated leather) carrying case. The Defender, The Commuter, The Professional. Hmm.... has a nice ring to it.
The Otter box is wonderful. It has excellent buttons and the phone fits perfectly. However, the only 2 faults I have found is the instructions for fitting the protective plastic stick on screen cover are somewhat vague. Maybe they should be shipped with 2 screen protectors, as without doubt fitting the first one will be stuffed up. The only other fault is that the phone when inside the case does not sit flat on a desk. It rocks. Still though it is an excellent product. Just needs some fine tuning.
I purchased the Otterbox commuter series case for my S4 mini which is a work phone. I also use it for my personal phone - Samsung Galaxy S4 and love it. My only complaint is that design for the S4 mini restricts the charging cable from connecting securely. When it is plugged in, it doesn't always charge because the design on the case hinders having a tight connection. This is not the case for my personal one - which is why I still gave it 4 stars overall.
I love my Commuter case. It makes holding on to my phone so much better. My phone was slippery to hold and with this case I feel secure holding my phone. I feel this case is great protection for the phone!
Love this case, this is my first smart phone and I wanted to protect it because it felt so thin and smooth I thought for sure I would drop it one day. So glad I got this cover, it is thin, great fitting and doesn't make the phone too big or bulky, perfect for anyone but especially for females because it's not the thicker bigger version with the clip, perfect to fit in your hand and store in a pocket or purse, I love it and I like black, it doesn't show dirt and yes it protects 100% I've dropped mine a few times no damage no matter what side it lands on, it kinda just bounces back a little, perfectly protects the phone!
The Commuter case is robust & is significantly slimmer than the bulky Defender series. However, it is unfortunate that Otterbox do not manufacture the even more slimline Symmetry cases to fit the S4 mini.
Thought the case I had was nice. Then, I ordered a Commuter series case for my Samsung and NOW I have a GREAT case.I am no longer afraid to take my phone everywhere I go.The Otterbox is real serious protection, while feeling great in my hand (and pocket ). I think my phone actually looks better in this case too. Very comfortable feel in the hand,much more secure feel than old case. And, solid as a rock.I'm sure my phone is WELL protected. Thanks Otterbox ,I will never buy anything else .
Pros: High quality, Durable, looks great, great feel
I ordered a case for my Samsung 4 mini. I received it and messed up the screen protector trying to put it on. I called Otterbox and they sent me another one in a few days. The one they sent was for a regular size Samsung. I called them and they sent me another case free without having to return the previous one. They were very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this company.
