Official Otterbox Commuter Case Thread
I did not see a thread for this case, but I thought it deserved one as soon as I put this on my Note II. This case is AWESOME! Just arrived today. I've had Otterbox Commuters for my Droid Incredible and Rezound, and this one beats both of those hands down. Everyone is familiar with the protection that these cases provide, but after days using the OEM Protector+ case and the Body Glove TPU case, this Otterbox makes the phone actually more comfortable to hold by giving it more depth and curved sides. My thought before buying this case was that because the phone was already big, why not get a big case? Plus, with the 5.5 inch screen, this phone begs for protection. But now that it's on the phone, the case doesn't seem big at all. It's the screen that still grabs your attention. I realize one negative point about Otterbox cases has been that the rubber layer is a lint magnet, but apparently this case is using Otterbox's newer rubber material. It definitely feels smoother and different from the other Commuter cases I had owned and has a shiny appearance very similar to that of the polycarbonate(?) shell layer. I cannot comment on this for sure, but I would be surprised if it attracted lint in your pockets. Volume and power buttons are easy to press (I read this was a concern with this case). The back, as with all Commuters, is slightly slippery, not as grippy as the other Note II cases I mentioned above. But thanks to the stylish parallel lines running across the back, it's grippier than the phone's bare back. Here are a few pics.
