Finally, I got my hands on the Otter Box Defender Series Case for the HTC EVO 4G LTE. I have been waiting to get a feel for the style that Otter Box went with on the Defender Series for the HTC EVO 4G LTE.
Six months ago I would have told you that I am not the biggest fan of the Otter Box Defender Series. It was not for me. I am not one to go for a case that cuts out the entire design process that HTC spent so much time and effort creating, just so we can go ahead and cover it up.
Then we did the drop test on the HTC One X and now, I too, Have a big case on my smartphone. It was not the fact that the screen shattered. It was when I went to change the screen, I noticed that the LCD underneath was also destroyed. This got me thinking of the Defender Series Case by Otter Box.
The HTC EVO 4G LTE is not a starter smartphone for a child. It costs a lot of money to purchase and even more money to fix or replace. That is why I am a firm believer in protecting your cellular investments that will be with you for two or more years. The Defender Series Case for the HTC EVO 4G LTE is not as thick as the ones that I have had in the past. Yes, it does make your HTC EVO 4G LTE a bit bulky but Otter Box has rounded the edges, gave it a smooth exterior finish while keeping a more than adequate non-slip quality. To me the snap on holster is just a bonus.
The one main feature of the Otter Box Defender Series Case for the HTC EVO 4G LTE is the built in screen protector that you never have to apply. Just put your HTC EVO 4G LTE in the Defender and that is it. The only thing that you have to do is make sure that the inside of the Defender and the screen of your HTC EVO 4G LTE are clean. If you do not then you will be staring at that same piece of lint forever.
The Otter Box Defender Series Case breaks down into four pieces. Starting from the outside layers we have the clip on holster, the thick rubber shock absorbing shell, then the last layer is the snapping closed hard shell with built in screen protector. The inside of the final hard shell layer is padded with what feels like neoprene that gives your HTC EVO 4G LTE a snug fit.
Once you put your HTC EVO 4G LTE inside the Otter Box Defender Series Case, it is almost cut-off from the outside world. The exposed parts of your HTC EVO 4G LTE are minimal. The Kickstand for one is still useable. The microphone, speaker, camera, and flash are also still free and clear for use. The 3.5mm headphone jack and the microUSB charging port are covered by a rubber shield that can be peeled back for use.
This is the perfect case for anyone in the construction field, masonry, carpentry, or any other employment or lifestyle that would require a tough case. There is one other line of customers that could benefit from the Defender Series Case by Otter Box for the HTC EVO 4G LTE.... Kids!
Once You get past the bulky feeling, the feeling of security sets in.
