Millions of OtterBox Fans Can’t be Wrong

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.

Let’s look at two of their most popular phone cases to see which OtterBox best fits your life.

    1. I’m going to have to beg to differ. While I might agree Otter Boxes seem a bit over priced, no case I’ve ever gotten for $5-10 has ever been as good.

      1. Maybe check out I-Blason dual layer prime series cases. You can find them for the moto x gen 1 and 2 in all black for $10. My phone has survived falls, badly aimed throws, getting stepped on, getting chewed on (young kids) and I haven’t had a single crack or malfunction. I use the kickstand all the time, and that hasn’t even broken yet. As far as I’m concerned, they have me as a permanent customer until they don’t make a case for a phone I buy.

  1. Regardless of the commentary below, I’ve had the O.B. Defender since getting started with Republic and the Moto X gen 1 and public retail release. Perfectly happy, lasts long time, still using it as a matter of fact. One thing I did notice over the lifetime is the outer case is not as tight as it was when I first put it on. In that, may be even better protection as there is now some air cushioned give on the back side if the phone is dropped. Not a fanboy by any means; but I’ve had excellent service out of the product. (Only thing I’d change – have all that protection AND have a phone the original dimensions of the Moto X… When I take the X out of it’s case it’s one very fine and svelte lady.

  2. I have three Moto X Defender cases that I will make a great deal for anyone that is interested in buying them from me. I broke my original case and because I liked it so much, but knew that it might break, I ordered three cases for what I thought was a replacement case. I received three Defender cases which are too bulky for me in dress clothes. So if you are looking for a great OtterBox deal, let me know.

  3. I have three OTTER Moto X Defender cases that I will sell to anyone that is interested at a great price. Long story of how I ended up with them but can’t use them with dress clothes. Just let me know and we can work out a deal.

  4. I tried an Otterbox belt clip case once and found the phone often dropped out of it. It was a belt clip that you pushed the phone into from the side. Often the phone slipped right out. The case has to be good to protect the phone from constant falling, Other manufacturers make much more secure and reliable belt clip cases, and most have a built in stand on the back. I have no use for Otterbox after discovering that..
