Default HTC Rezound Otterbox Defender Series

I'm new to this forum, but experienced on others. So, here I go.

I bought the Otterbox Defender Series case for my HTC Rezound not too long ago, off of htcpedia.com for a somewhat discounted price. At the time I bought my phone I bought the Verizon 2750mAh extended battery as well, and the Defender seemed to be the only case I was really interested in getting that covered the bigger battery. So far, I've loved the protection, the durability, and the ease of changing between the regular battery and extended battery, as well as getting it on and off quickly.

My question in starting this post is, do you like it?

I find it quite bulky when inside pockets, and it's hard to get out once it's buried in there. It's huge, and God-awful looking some days in my opinion. But for the protection, I think it is definitely worth the money.

Have you seen the defender for the Razr? It fits so much better, I guess because of the size.

If your gonna pop off the hard plastic screen protector just but the commuter edition I have it and it's very durable it goes through a lot of abuse and no damage whatsoever

How'd you fit the extended battery? By just leaving the back off or cutting? I've seen where others have done that but I wanted to get your opinion. Got my extended battery on the way, already have the defender and love it.

I had the case for a weekend and ended up selling it here because I did not like the bulk it added to the phone. I would like to add that it does protect better than any other case I have seen. I ended up going with a body glove case as I like how it goes together and slim profile. Just my 2 cents.

I've actually got this case on my Rezound, but with the mugen 4000 battery. What I did was cut down the standard cover and the otterbox cover so that I have a case that fits quite well with no detectable deformities (like you can do if you use the extended back without the otterbox back). My signal strength is also unchanged in this configuration.

Could you show the inside. I'd like to get a better idea on how you got it to work. That's awesome.
