Does it feel a lot thicker? How thick is it? In person, how does it look? Beautiful? Do you know how it compares to an otterbox defender (size wise)?
Thanks!

I don't know how it compares to the otterbox cuz this is the only case I've got for the DNA

Any strong protection will add some girth its not alot and I don't mind

I would have preferred the white and black instead of the white and grey but that's all amazon had

I think the case is very nice

Where did you get this case from? I checked on Amazon and could not find it at all. The only ones that showed up in my search were the "SG" cases, but not the SG MAXX. I looked on Ballistic's site and the MAXX case is listed as "Coming Soon"..

I got mine from CellularFactory.com. Use Promo Code 20cellularfactory for 20% off.
Also when you get to last checkout screen for payment the Promo Code box will come back up and you can enter freeship and get free shipping.
I ended up getting mine for 31.99 free shipping. And so far i love mine.

I don't have the SG Maxx, but have the SG case and I find that, while it provides exceptional protection, the hard plastic part of the case is squeezing the DNA a bit much. I notice blue splotches on the phone screen when viewing a page with a white background, like when there's pressure on the screen. the Trident Aegis might be a better alternative. The Aegis also made provisions for the rear notification light.
