It does come down to what do you need. The defender is bulkiy, BUT it also has a belt clip thats easy to pop the phone in and out of AND the case itself keeps drops from hurting the phone.
I needed those 3 things. There actually was a review on iphone cases in Zartmans Toyota magazine. There was another one in there that was promising, but after looking at it I stuck with the defender. I got another one (green) as everyone has black and was hard to tell phones apart
