The otterbox defender is the best $50 ive ever spent. I had my first 8330 curve for a month then it broke due to HUMIDITY. Can you believe that? I had it in my pocket doing a fall cleanup and it broke because i was sweating. Had to pay $50 to replace the phone then bought the otterbox which was another $50. I could dunk the thing in a pond now and throw it off a brick wall and it wouldnt phase it. Best money ive ever spent phone wise.
