The otterbox defender is a more protecting case than the spigen slim armor case...if you drop your phones alot and you dont want to have to much expenses on always repairing the device i suggest the otterbox defender case

Yeah, I allready watched some videos on YouTube with Otterbox. They are very good, but I can't compare it to Spigen Armor View, because I can't find anything like "droptest S4" in this case. It's important to me to keep my superamoled screen & gorrila glass on S4 after something bad happens. That's why I wonder about Spigen View Case. Maybe it's more protective for stones when it drop on front face?

I currently use a Slim Armor with a Nano Slim Glass Screen protector and I love it, now it also depends if you drop your device a lot, I usually dont or even hardly ever do, but im sure if I drop it with this combo that I have i'll be OK.

There's a reason why there isn't any drop tests for the slim armor, it's because it's not that protective. It's good to protect the back and sides from everyday use, but for drops, not so much.

Maybe just the slim armor, but the slim armor view protects all of the sides when closed.

The Slim Armour view is just the same about the regular slim Armour but just with a face cover..and the cover is there to just only cover the screen..nothing more..

Are you saying it's not worth the 50 bucks?

I'd used Spigen Slim Armor View for about a month and I liked it very much. But after official KK 4.4.2 update, the home button on the front cover is no longer working (I guess Samsung had their S-View cover in mind). So I returned it the retailer and awaiting for Otterbox Defender as a replacement (credits to MobileFun). I've read a lot of positive reviews about it.
