Over a week ago we got our hands on the Otterbox Defender Series Case for the new Apple iPhone 5. The Defender Series case offers quite a bit of protection to the iPhone 5 and Otterbox has many variants for the case for different smartphones as well. In this video I will mention why I purchased the case and where improvements have been made. I will also mention some downfalls and missed opportunities. The case offers 3 layers of protection that include a poly-carbonate inner shell, a built in hard screen protector, and a silicone outer portion that is there to absorb shock from falls as well as cover many of the ports from dirt and debris. Check out the video after the break for a close look at this case.
AT&T has handled the iPhone since its first launch in 2007 when AT&T was chosen as the launch carrier in the US. AT&T has stated that the iPhone 5 was their biggest launch so far in terms of units sold on opening day. The iPhone 5 was actually sold out on Apple's website for launch day shipments. AT&T was quoted saying:
AT&T set a sales record with iPhone 5 over the weekend, making it the fastest-selling iPhone the company has ever offered. Customers ordered more iPhones from AT&T than any previous model, both on its first day of preorders and over the weekend.
