LG Flex OtterBox Defender

The LG Flex OtterBox Defender features 3 layers of protection.

Pro’s

The LG Flex OtterBox Defender case offers durable protection to the LG Flex without taking away from any of the phone’s features.  The LG Flex OtterBox Defender features 3 layers of protection with an optional 4th layer when using the belt clip.

First, the LG Flex is protected on the back by a soft layer of micro-fiber foam and on the front by a durable clear plastic screen-protecting membrane.  Then, a durable yet flexible hard-plastic case adds additional structural support to the entire phone.  Last, a hard rubber case coats around the entire phone (except for the screen) and acts as a shock absorbing layer.

LG Flex OtterBox Defender

The OtterBox Defender can flex right along with the LG Flex, even with several protective layers.

However, perhaps the most striking feature is the fact that the LG Flex OtterBox Defender can still bend and flex with the LG Flex despite having 3 protective layers.

Also, while the LG Flex OtterBox Defender offers access to all of the various ports, cameras, and buttons of the LG Flex, the case includes special doors and flaps to protect any ports or openings from dust and debris.

Con’s

Not so much the fault of the case as it is of the phone, the LG Flex OtterBox Defender is very large and not very comfortable to wear on a belt, despite the included belt clip.  Also, the phone case is difficult to take out from the belt clip once installed.

LG Flex OtterBox Defender

The OtterBox Defender for LG Flex has 8 secure points that need to be opened in order to install/uninstall the phone.

While a secure fit inside the case is desirable, installing the LG Flex into the OtterBox Defender is a little bit difficult and takes more than a full minute.  This is more of a drawback because the LG Flex OtterBox Defender is not waterproof.  If water manages to get into the case, it takes a while to remove the phone so that it can be dried before causing damage.

Lastly, the unique curve of the phone and therefore of the case make the viewing stand feature of the LG Flex OtterBox Defender’s belt clip impossible to use.

Conclusion

The LG Flex OtterBox Defender offers more thorough and comprehensive protection than any other  LG Flex rugged phone case on the market.  However, due to the LG Flex’s large size (really more of a table than a phone), the case is uncomfortable to carry using the included belt clip.
