Our Opinion

I have tried both but in the end I like the Otterbox Commuter for protection and functionality. I am not in a business where my HTC EVO 4G LTE is in so much danger that I need the Otterbox Defender Series Case, but if I was still in construction, I know for a fact that I would have the Defender.

HTC EVO 4G LTE Otterbox Defender vs Commuter Review w/Demonstration Video

How awesome is your HTC EVO 4G LTE? I simply can not stop playing with it, and because I am using it so much I have come so close to destroying it. I know that I want an Otterbox case, but I do not know if I want the Otterbox Defender or the Otterbox Commuter for my HTC EVO 4G LTE. They are both awesome cases but at the same time they are both very different. Otterbox is not for everyone but they come really close. If you are one who would like a more simplistic case for your HTC EVO 4G LTE, then you can get them at HTCpedia shop.



We will start off with the Otterbox Commuter Series case for the HTC EVO 4G LTE. They do give you three separate layers of protection but together they really make only 1.5 layers of protection. You can see in this picture the layers broken down. The two shell pieces do make dual layer but the screen protector is single layer and that is how it is 1.5 layers of protection. Dual layer on a screen protector would be very bad for the touch sensitivity. The inner layer of the Otterbox Commuter series case for the HTC EVO 4G LTE is rubber while the outer layer is a hard shell.



The Otterbox Defender Series Case for the HTC EVO 4G LTE is so different from the Commuter. Starting with the fact that the outer layer is hard rubber and the inner layer has the hard shell. The inner layer difference does not end there. The inner layer is two pieces that snap on to your HTC EVO 4G LTE and enclose it with a built in screen protector. Forget about messy screen protector application with this one. Snap together the two shell pieces, replace the outer rubber shell and then your ready to use the belt clip holster that also comes with the Otterbox Defender Series Case for the HTC EVO 4G LTE.



The thing that is similar with the two Otterbox cases for the HTC EVO 4G LTE is that you can still use the built in signature EVO kickstand that HTC was kind enough to supply you with.



Why have a feature if you can not use it and that is exactly what Otterbox was thinking when they made the Otterbox Defender and the Otterbox Commuter series cases for the HTC EVO 4G LTE.

Here is the demonstration video that I made so you can see for yourself how different they are.



I have tried both but in the end I like the Otterbox Commuter for protection and functionality. I am not in a business where my HTC EVO 4G LTE is in so much danger that I need the Otterbox Defender Series Case, but if I was still in construction, I know for a fact that I would have the Defender.
