This cell phone case fits perfectly and looks great. Very good quality and great protection with all buttons and ports fully accessible. The shipping was quick and packaged professionally and would order again. Thanks!

Great case except for one crucial design flaw Jan. 20 2011
By Josh - Published on
Verified Purchase
This case has a great design excellent feel, it's lightweight doesn't add too much bulk to the phone. I like how it fits the look of the captivate and love the button and headphone jack covers. My beef with this case is that the plastic shell that goes over the silicone inner layer does not cover the top and the bottom edges of the phone. The lack of rigid support on these areas causes the silicone to curl up when you pull the phone out of your pocket. This is very annoying and allows lint, dirt and whatever smut that might be in your pocket inside the case. Sometimes I wonder if little things like this ever cross an engineer/designer's mind when they design a product. Having the full plastic shroud covering all edges would have barely added any thickness and the case would install just as easily and the silicone will stay put. If it weren't for this flaw this would be a 5 star case

Works perfect and feels nice! Dec 5 2010

I do not know why the previous reviewer said this doesn't fit right, but mine fits perfect! Rubber covering went on easy and the hard back cover was on with not much effort. Feels good in the hand. Phone don't feel as fragile now like it did naked. This cover fits like a glove and does not come off easy (a good thing) so it will not pop off if you do happen to drop your phone. Otterbox is truly a top of line product when it comes to cases/protectors.

Awesome Jan. 1 2011

This Commuter Series Otterbox fits the Captivate like a not bulky and the screen protector that comes with it is a snap to install also. The openings are sufficient for all of the hookups. I'm glad I got the Commuter series.

Commuter series is best Otterbox choice Aug. 8 2011
By s p a c e d u s t - Published on

I purchased both Commuter series and Defender series of the Otterbox brand phone cases. I really prefer the Commuter series over the Defender series. The Commuter is less bulky and still offers great protection even from a drop off a table. The Commuter has a perfect-fit rubber case that then fits snug into a hard case that together give your phone great protection against bumps and drops. The Commuter also has a scratch guard adhesive shield that fits over your phone screen for extra protection. This is optional protection. The hard plastic casing helps to make it easier to take out of a tight pocket or pants.

The Defender series offers super protection against drops and bangs, but a little too bulky to carry. The Defender has a hard plastic case that snap-fits over your phone, including a scratch guard shield that is built-in to the case, then the plastic shell fits into a perfect-fit rubber case. The rubber case is outside of the plastic shell, which is different than the Commuter (rubber case is in the inside). In addition, the Defender has a hard-plastic clip-on holster that the case now fits into. Three layers of protection when it's in the holster. This was a little bigger and bulkier than I expected. But would take a good beating without damaging your precious phone. The phone was too bulky, so I carry it with out the holster. Now this becomes a problem when I want to carry it in my pocket. First the Defender is too big, then the rubber case makes is hard to take out of a pocket because it grips. Next it attracts lint and dust to the rubber.

In conclusion, the Defender offers best protection, but big and bulky and attracts dust. On the other hand the Commuter is slimmer, and still offers good protection and at lesser cost than the Defender. Commuter series is best option. Make sure you visit[...] to understand how each of their series are built. Enjoy your case.

Good case for the Captivate Dec 16 2010
By A. Halfen - Published on

This is a good case for the captivate. It fits well and all buttons for the phone are accessible. This is nothing like the defender series from otterbox but it still affords moderate protection for your phone.
