OtterBox Defender Case for HTC Thunderbolt Smartphone Review

Today we are taking a look at the OtterBox Defender case for the HTC Thunderbolt. The OtterBox Defender has a tough polycarbonate shell on it with a built-in screen protector and over that a silicone skin wraps around it all for exceptional shock absorption. Read on to see how well the OtterBox Defender can protect my HTC Thunderbolt from being damaged!

The Defender HTC2-TBOLT for the HTC Thunderbolt from OtterBox is a nice case that will protect your $250 investment. I did not have any major issues using the Defender for the HTC Thunderbolt; only real annoyance was the times I didn’t want to use the holster and trying to slip the phone into my back pocket. There was a small break-in period, but after a day or I was used to the case being on the Thunderbolt...

Prior to this review I used the extended battery due to the fact some days I know I will not be able to hook my phone to a charger during the day.

Seems like we're taking steps back. Sure that old flip phone didn't have internet, SWYPE, video camera, bottle opener, etc... But you could charge the phone and go for two weeks. If I don't have a charger handy my phone will not survive the day. This is an average day where I don't get very many phone calls and some light 3G web browsing.

On a side note: Happy 4th of July. Just about every county in SE Texas has banned fireworks this year. Hopefully that doesn't mean more rednecks shooting guns in the air. Everyone stay safe and remember not to light that M60 close to your face.

I use my phone for work and play. Several hundred emails and texts, as well as several calls in a day. If I shut the LTE off and use 3G majority of the time then I can go the hole workday with the extended battery, slap it on the car charger for the hour or so drive home, and I'm good for the rest of the night.

With the standard battery I have to watch how I use my phone during the work day, and have to charge off my pc or the car atleast once during the day then on my way home for sure.

Have an old flip phone I use for an alarm clock. Charge it once a week, if that often. Phones now are pretty much portable pc's, amazed the go as long as they do on the batteries they have.
