Otterbox Commuter for Samsung DROID Charge

You like smartphones but you know you're a little rougher than the average bear. You're not quite Chuck Norris-esque, but you still need something to make you (and your phone) feel secure. For that, you can't go wrong with the Otterbox Commuter for Samsung Droid Charge.

The Commuter is Otterbox's standard two-piece affair: a rubberized skin that goes directly on the phone, and a hard shell that snaps on the back. As a result, you end up getting protection all over, and a bit more shock absorption on the back, but lose the grippiness of the rubber on the palm of your hand.

The rubber skin ends up covering up all of the normally open ports on your phone, as well as all of the buttons. The physical buttons Sammy included on the bottom also get the wrap treatment, but for fortunately, there's still cutouts for the microphone.

It definitely feels like a solid case, right in like with what we've come to expect from Otterbox, and without adding too much bulk. If you're dying to feel the actual buttons on your Charge, I'd definitely look elsewhere. For those wanting a bit extra protection without reducing their phone to a brick, the Otterbox Commuter is a fine choice.

The Otterbox Commuter for Samsung Droid Charge can be found in the Android Central Store for $32.95.

Bought my OtterBox Defender for my EVO 3D before I even walked out of the Sprint store.

Then I ordered a customized Skinit skin featuring ANDROIDCENTRAL.

Android Central I'll send you guys the pics so everyone can see my Android Central pride.

The only problem with the case is the physical buttons get covered, it becomes a pain so i ended up taking mine off my droidx2.

Got one for my Atrix and LOVE IT.

Fit is outstanding. Nothing is blocked, there are rubber caps over the ports and they all open up or could be clipped off. The screen protector fits perfectly too.

Dropped the phone after a week--and it only went 'clunk' instead of making a sharp clatter.

The grip is perfectly good, the hard shell is nicely textured. And nothing gets gummy or sticky in the pocket.

Maybe you can do as well, but I don't think you'll find anything better, or more practical, with this much protection and still not very bulky.
