Smartphones hold a special place in our lives. Some of us reach for them as part of our morning ritual. We get excited when they alert us to a new message. We check our calendars, to-do lists, obligations, bank accounts and emails as we multi-task along in our daily lives. We take them on hikes, bikes and to concerts and rock climbing excursions. We may even post an occasional Facebook status from the bathroom (!). And we get very upset when our smartphones get broken, cracked or demolished.
OtterBox understands our obsessive need to have our phones with us at all times. That’s why they designed their ultra-protective mobile phone case to go wherever life takes us. And their sturdy engineering and high-quality materials are why OtterBox cases are the best-selling cases in the US.
