Anyone drop tested their Q10 Otter Defender?

I have been protecting all my previous BBs with Otter Defender series since available.


Just did the same with the Q10. But Otter now uses a much harder soft layer than the previous silicone gel.

I'm quite skeptical about its ability to absorb enough energy before it is transmitted to the device's vital components and cause damages.


I haven't found any videos or reviews with actual drop test.


Feel free to post or refer if you know a place where we can see actual drop test results on Q10 protected by a Defender.


None of my previous BBs experienced damages from a free fall on hard floors when protect by a Defender case. I wonder if it still true with the new Q10 flavor of it.

I have trusted Otterbox for many years and have reccomended them to many people.


I have not dropped mine yet but not willing to test it.
