<none so far>
I have tried many protective cases, covers, and skins for my Nokia N8 and I find the OtterBox Commuter case to be the best out of all of them.
The workmanship is excellent as the case fits perfectly around the phone to give a very snug, tight fit so that there is absolutely no shifting or wiggling of the phone inside the case. All the buttons line up perfectly and even the slider switch on the side is easily accessed. What I really like are the access port push-in tab covers: the micro-usb, AC charger, and headphone jack holes will stay free of dust and dirt. It does not allow access to the SD and SIM card slots, and it does not allow access to the wrist strap hole in the bottom of the phone.
The case makes the phone easier to hold and use because it provides really good grip and makes the phone a little bigger (which works well for me because I have big hands).
The case does make the phone bulky but that is unavoidable. I find that to be a trade-off well worth the above-listed benefits the case affords.
Did not give 5/5 because that would imply perfection which is practically impossible :P
