Otterbox Defender Series LG V40 ThinQ Case Review

Smartphones are getting more and more expensive. And the displays are getting bigger and bigger. This makes the need for a protective case even more critical. While any case is better than none, they are not all created equal. If you want one of the best, you need to look at Otterbox. Up for review today is their Defender Series.

 Features and specs:

Raised edge for added screen protection

Multi-layer case with solid inner shell and resilient outer slipcover

Port covers block dirt, dust and lint from getting into jacks and ports

Polycarbonate shell

Synthetic rubber slipcover

 The Otterbox Defender Series comes in a clear plastic box with it’s specs ,and the ability to actually see the case inside. Opening the box revealed a well made case. Materials used is both a hard plastic, as well as a softer rubber cover, and foam. Quality of materials used as well as the fit and finish was excellent.

 I love the design of the Otterbox Defender. When I got the new LG V40 ThinQ, it was time for a case. Knowing of their quality of protection, I naturally looked to Otterbox. There is a hard, plastic skeleton with a built in foam pad that the smartphone sits on, to protect against impacts. The skeleton is two pieces, one on the front and one on the back, and they snap together. The soft outer shell slides into place.  I also love there belt loop case holder, that holds your case securely in place.
When it is all put together, there’s the soft rubber outer layer with hard plastic shell. The level of protection is excellent. I know the LG V40 ThinQ has some of the best protection available. Everything clicked into place and melded together perfectly. The MSRP is a little pricey at $59.95, but it is worth every penny. And the option of colors are Black or Bespoke Way blue.

If you are looking for some of the best protection available for your smartphone, the Otterbox Defender Series should be on your short list. Based on it’s design, features, quality and performance, the Otterbox Defender Series has earned our Editor’s Choice Award. For more info and complete specs, check out their website at
