I would have to agree. The Otterbox cases are amazing. Just REALLY expensive. lol
Being the frugal guy i am, I searched around for a lower priced alternative. I beleive I found it.
It's a case by Body Glove. Very similar to the Otterbox case in just about every way. I actually like the looks better than the Otterbox. Not as clunky and "geeky". Totally protects everything. Awesome screen protection.
You can find it at Crackberry dot com. I cant post the link yet apparently LOL
I didnt buy mine at Crackberry but their price is very nice. I bought mine retail and paid 22.99. Check it out, you can save some bucks without sacrificing protection!
