Re: Which Cell Phone & Case Do You Use?


Does it have the plastic surround and then the rubber or is it just the rubber case? The defender has the plastic surround which is an extra layer of protection from being bounced off the floor.

Re: Which Cell Phone & Case Do You Use?


I am still using a Rugby II flip phone that I have had for the past 7 years. Been a very good and durable phone. Don't need a smart phone as I have a table with internet connection.

Galaxy s5 with a lifeproof case for the last 4 years. I've beat the crap out of the case and it's still pretty good, although one of the seals did just fall out last week

Galaxy Note 5. Had OB Defender(broke). Bought $10 cheapo on Amazon(broke). Now I'm biding my time until the next phone purchase. Too bad most of the newer models seem similar, not a lot of new tech out there yet.

Re: Which Cell Phone & Case Do You Use?


Samsung Galaxy Amp2. Got a case at Home Depot that I will use during the month of summer. Otherwise it's in my vest pocket. It was a freebe with Cricket, no not the OP, it's an offshoot of AT&T of some kind. $35 a month, including taxes.
