For those who are worried about their phone’s safety, the Otterbox Defender case is perfect. It’s a big, weighty thing — over 200g and too big to fit comfortably into a trouser pocket — but possibly the safest thing you can buy for your phone.

The inside of the case is cushioned to protect the iPhone 4/4S from scratches. The outside of the case is made of heavy-duty plastic to shield from bumps and knocks. There’s textured silicone to make sure you won’t drop the phone, a holster so you don’t have to worry about it slipping out of your pocket, a built-in screen protector to protect it from scratches, flaps to stop dirt getting into the ports or gaps in the exterior of the phone and everything but an armed guard to keep your phone safe.
