I returned the otterbox defender case and kept this one. -Otter pros: slimmer, protection for the back with wrap around hard case, covers for all ports, lint resistant rubber case, belt clip and stand included -Otter cons: if heat is an issue, this case might retain more heat since it has a double layer in the back (see ref above re hard case), less rugged edges hence less drop protection, exposed rear speaker, bulky optional belt clip (would've preferred just a stand that folds flush and integrated into the case.)
-Gumdrop pros: easier to install and remove (2 piece, compared to 3 piece otterbox) more rugged with thicker corner rubber, better port protection design, covers home button, rear speaker grill, less heat retention, familiar gumdrop design (for those who have other gumdrop cases), better grip due to textured design and rubbery feel. -Gumdrop cons: slightly larger case. Somewhat diasspointed with the feel of the case, knocking off one star. Here's...
Ok. I was traveling a lot and have a lot of children that think electronics bounce. If you are a minor and and read this, your parent's electronics do not bounce. If you love them, don't drop their electronics. Or draw on the wall. Or flush the entire role of toilet paper down the toilet. Or sword fight next to the new TV. Yup, its like a reality show at our house without the need for editors.
Anyways....So, I bought a Gumdrop for my Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0. I was mixed between the Otterbox and the Gumdrop until I saw a YouTube video of two people (apparently with too much money in their pockets) shooting paint balls at both an Otterbox and a Gumdrop. Otterbox failed. Gumdrop survived. Good video, check it out.
Gumdrop is the perfect case choice for the Note 8.0 and probably other devices, but not for the S4 (as I will eventually share). Integrated screen protector is fabulous and it snaps on tight to the device. The rubber has ridges all over it to...
At the price of added bulk (this case triples the volume of your phone), the Gumdrop case protects your S4 from any kind of drop or impact imaginable. If you are an adult and regularly clean your dryer's lint trap and use dryer sheets, it does not gather lint like some other reviews have stated.
Pros: Protects phone from any kind of shock, drop, or impact Case is very grippy. You could leave it on your car's dashboard while doing donuts and it won't go anywhere
Cons: Push through for the power button was to long, I had to shave it down with a hobby knife to keep the case from constantly powering off my phone. For a case this bulky it should be fully waterproof The case is very grippy. It is hard to get out of your pocket in a hurry. It would probably be impossible to put it in a pocket on a pair of women's pants.
I have more cons listed than pros, but I put a huge emphasis on protecting my phone from damage because I'm a huge...
