The only complaint I have is how difficult it is to open the flaps that cover the plug-in portal and volume switch. My fear is that with the extra force/twisting/pulling that is necessary to open them, the flaps will eventually fall off.

The OtterBox does not fit the IPhone 5S properly. The 5S has long oval volume control buttons. The OtterBox once snapped on presses in the volume buttons so you cannot adjust the volume. The case is molded with round rubber buttons that should press against your phones volume buttons to adjust the volume. It cannot because the hard case partially covers them making it unable to adjust the volume. Do NOT buy this until the case is properly remolded to fit your phone correctly.
I lost my otter box clip / holder so, I needed a new Otter Box Case clip / holder, which i purchased with my Iphone 5 one yr ago.
so i order the otter Box, here the issue.
the circle where you place your thumb, index finger ect . for touch ID is so small i can use it... this is something that should be advertise in the description . FYI.. Female with small hands / fingers the only reason i won't retune Item, because i need the Clip / phone holder. if not would..
These are very rugged phone cases. They are designed so that all ports are protected, even if the phone is dropped flat on its face the raised silicone corners keep the screen from hitting the ground. I would say the only downside of the otterbox is that the thumb print ID system is disable by the screen cover (this is stated in the add so it wasn't a surprise)
This is an awesome case, I bought 3, one for me and my 2 sons. One son skateboards, so no need to explain why I got the case. It works great for protecting the iPhones. The only drawback,, for me, is I have a hard time accessing the pull up menu from the bottom because of the case. My son said you just have to get used to it. It was strongly suggested that I get one of these cases and it was worth it!!
The product feels very sturdy! It is a bit difficult to remove the case so it seems to be very secure within it. I recently read an article that said one of the biggest enemies of iphones is the crud that ends up getting into the ports (charger, headphone) this case completely covers those ports when not in use. Overall I am very happy with case.
This is a very sturdy case! My son had one on his iPhone 4 for 2 years and it held up very well! We were so pleased it lasted through the abuse from a 10 year old. Naturally it was my first choice when my next son acquired his phone! I am confident that this Otter box will last as well as the first one we bought and we were thrilled to find it at such a great price on Groupon Goods!!
This Otterbox is the best iPhone accessory purchase I've made. Your phone is completely safe (except from water) from life's little bumps and bruises. It's bulky, but not uncomfortably so. The only hiccup that I've encountered is that I'm not able to use my Touch function to unlock my iPhone; there's not enough room in the space provided. But, oh well, I okay with that.
Love the Otter Box phone case. The only feature I have an issue with is the screen cover. You have to press harder than normal to type & so forth. That is minor to me as I prefer the protection of the phone.

OtterBox makes a very good protective case. My only complaints are:
1.) it is very difficult to remove, and
2.) It prevents me from being able to use the fingerprint I.D.
Other than that, I'm very satisfied with it and would probably buy one again, especially if the fingerprinting problem was fixed.
