Got the Seidio Active case in and here are my thoughts:

As far as the case for the phone, it holds it real tight. No creaking, etc like there was with the otter box. Also it is much thinner. I would be more worried if I dropped it in the case although it still offers protection.

The belt clip is a much better design. No problems with it at all. Phone seems to sit nicely in case and does not feel lose.

The only other thing I don't like is that there are no covers for the openings on the phone like the usb, headphone jack. Overall very good product.

Agree 100% with this post. I am really rather surprised because for the Inspire the Active case was MUCH more solid. Had covering over the port and even came with it's own screen protector. The other thing I'm surprised about is the way they didn't make the stand inter-changable. You can't have it stand up and on the charger at the same time. Oh well. I'm still very pleased.

That is true, never thought about it. I did find another benefit though, the seido also has nice finger grips on the sides which make it easier to hold. The otter box didn't have anything like this.

it will make your phone run warmer, but it won't overheat. Any case you use will cause some excess heat.

Took my otter box off for a day and for the sake of testing I played Pandora for a whole hour no wifi and yep it still overheated so the otterbox is back on and not causing the issue I'm having. Its obviously Pandora and ics and lte all together causing the issue

I am interested in the otterbox defender, I have read review on Amazon.
The reviews state that ppl have a hard time hearing you. Does anyone find this to be the case?

its a good case. I have the commuter and defender. I have to say though, I think I prefer the commuter. It really just depends on what you want though. The good thing about the defender is that the silicone shell is more like tpu than silicone, so its not a dust magnet.
