    Hey All, I just replaced my 9650 with a new one so it is all shiny and perfect! My old one I just carried in the leather belt clip and after that first drop I didnt mind if it got an occasional nick on it. But with the new one I want to keep it perfect. I had an otterbox defender for my 8530 and the bulk didnt really bother me. My main question is the 9650 is quite a bit larger that the 8530 so I imagine with the defender on it its a chunk. Im just curious from those that use a defender on their 9650. How big is it and is it something you get used to.

    Thanks

    I use a Defender on my 9630, and while substantial, it's not too big to use. I actually only use it when I'm going to be a bit more active than in the office etc., but I love it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who wants top level protection for their Berry.

    If your looking for a quality case for your 9650 try the body glove. I like this one because it gives you nice protection without the bulk. It comes with a swivel belt clip w/ stand. If you don't want to wear the belt clip its still slim enough to put in a jacket pocket.

    I use a defender. The bulk doesn't bother me, but I carry mine in my back pocket if I'm not wearing my pea coat.

    I like my Defender. Then again I am somebody with bigger hands, and anything to bulk up the device makes it easier for me to hold.

    There are also cheaper otterbox cases that are less bulky and still quite protective.check them all out!

    While the Defender is not "too big" to use, if you don't use or need the belt clip I would suggest the Otterbox Commuter case - it's much less bulky yet offers excellent protection.
