Just ordered the rugged extended battery case from zerolemon. I'll be posting a full review in this thread as soon as I receive it. Hopefully I can retire my modded Defender now

While this looks really nice, do you think it would make my phone even heavier/bulkier?

For anyone considering this case, it blocks the proximity sensor. I thought that maybe my sensor had gone bad as during a call my screen would go blank and not turn back on. Turns out it was the case. Another thing to consider is the whole thing feels "cheap" compared to my otterbox but considering it's only $20 instead of $60 I can't really complain. It is easier to swipe down from the top to open menus than the otterbox, I just wish it didn't block the proximity sensor.

My proximity sensor is fine in this case.

What colour case do you have? Maybe just my case or colour (blue) is bad

Anyone else having a problem with the power button that's too sensitive? It keeps showing the power off screen when I hit the power button.

Edit: the power button is waaay too sensitive. Just running may finger across the power button is enough to turn the phone on/off. Is there anyway to fix this?

Mine was also just as you described.

The first thing I did was torque the case a little by twisting to make sure everything was sitting properly, this improved the button a little but not enough for my liking ymmv.

My next step was using an exacto knife to remove a very small bit of the height of the button on the inside of outer case and try again. After several times through this process I got the button just how I liked it and used a file to smooth out the surface. Be careful you don't shave off too much material and ruin the case, the other thing to be aware is no matter how much you shave you will never get the clicky feel you get with the volume buttons, it's just not that kind of button.

Alternatively you can ask zerolemon for a replacement and they will likely send you a new TPU outer case, however it is just as likely you will get another one that behaves the same.
