I just got my iPhone 4S otterbox...all I can say is wow. From the 4, to 4S case wise, I see a 99%, yes 99% improvement of quality, not that the 4 case was ever bad quality. They still haven't mastered the screen protector, but the silicon is VERY VERY sturdy and tough. Way tougher then my 4 ever was. It took all, ALL of my strength to get that baby off. And I am not a weakling, either. Home button and power buttons are a lot sturdier to touch and press. Just a few problems, silicon not fitting around the camera right, and the dock won't close but that will be relaxed in. I have never had a lifeproof, but this thing has to beat it. Now all I gotta get is liquipel on my iPhone.
