Otterbox will not replace your phone if damaged. Those of you talking about the Otterbox are talking about the defender series. They have a new Armor series now that is water proof, drop proof, dust proof and crush proof. The Lifeproof case is good buy I think the Otterbox Armor will be better. I also like the silicone cushion inside the armor series. My 1st Lifeproof marked up the back of my Iphone from the hard plastic nubs inside the lifeproof.
