FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

OtterBox Defender Series Case and Holster for Samsung Galaxy S4

Ok, maybe it is age related but I'm reasonably technical.  I found the pictograph Welcome to Planet Otterbox quick start guide grossly inadequate.   I would recommend actual photos as opposed to drawings and close ups as to where to push, pull or stick your knife blade to get the darn thing open.   If it offers as much protection as it takes to get the thing on your phone it will be super.   I was able to get it open and as I mentioned, my trusty pocket knife was invaluable getting the darn thing open.  Once it was open it was easy to get my phone into it.   It does seem that it is well constructed but it is very bulky with the belt clip.  It isn't too bad without the belt clip.  I'm not overly fond of belt or  pocket clips.  With all of the publicity of nut jobs grabbing peoples phones, I feel better having it in my jeans pocket.  I have trouble getting it out so a thief would have to a very attractive female and overly friendly to get it out of my pocket.

This does seem to offer a great deal of protection.   If you are a belt or pocket clip person, I suspect you would love it.  I do like the flaps that protect the ports but it was a bit of a push to get the power port open wide enough for my charger.
