OtterBox has become one of the leading names in protective cases for smartphones, and for good reason: They offer multiple layers of protection to keep your phone safe in a variety of emergencies. The Defender Series is rugged without being too bulky and much lighter than other cases in the OtterBox family. It has four parts that clip together around your phone for all-around protection—a silicone outer layer to absorb shock, a polycarbonate inner layer for stability, a screen protector to keep your display scratch-free, and a belt-clip holster for convenience.
Don’t worry: Under all this armor, all of the phone’s buttons and ports are accessible, though hidden under port covers. Most importantly, it gives peace of mind knowing that your phone will most likely survive a fall or two.
Availability: Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, HTC One, and several other Android smartphones (OtterBox has a full compatibility list.)
