As Jenny mentioned earlier this week, we’re the proud new owners of iPhones. We didn’t even have the shiny new things in our hands before we started worrying about dropping them or our kids breaking them – we needed cases and we needed them fast!
Since we’ve worked with Otterbox in the past , we reached out to them to see if we could review the new cases for the iPhone 4S, and they kindly agreed.
Jenny knew right away that she wanted the absolute best protection for her phone that she could get, so she picked out the Otterbox Defender Series .
From their website
This rugged iPhone 4S case provides heavy duty protection from rough treatment in the worst environments. Our Defender Series iPhone 4S Case defends against drops, dust and damage without taking away from the interaction of the iPhone’s features. The iPhone 4S Defender Series Case offers triple-layer protection and is built from a high-impact polycarbonate shell, durable silicone and a built-in screen protector, making it one of the toughest iPhone 4S Cases out there.
Jenny’s not exactly using her phone in a war zone, but let’s face it – life with kids ensures “rough treatment in the worst environments.” The case has protected her new phone well, which is good because I’m pretty sure she’d off herself if her phone broke.
I also wanted great protection for my phone, but it was important to me to find a case that offered that but that also fit in my pocket easily. I picked the Otterbox Commuter Series case .
From their website
This sleek and tough iPhone 4S case protects from scratches, bumps and shocks. The new camera rivals point-and-shoot cameras on the market and deserves the level of protection only OtterBox delivers. The Commuter Series iPhone 4S Case has two layers of protection that work together to divert any impact force away from the device, keeping you and your new iPhone 4S ready for anything.
I really like the case a lot, and I feel very comfortable knowing my phone is protected. I’ve dropped it a couple times, and it’s no worse for the wear. I picked the color shown above, and if I had it to do over again I would have picked a different one because the white silicone has gotten a little dingy. Other than that, though, it’s perfect.
Both of us got the black iPhone 4S, but I’ve heard that the white version is slightly larger than the black phone and that finding cases to fit it is not easy. I did some research on the Otterbox site, though, and according to the FAQs, all of their cases work with the white iPhone 4s as well.
We’ve been quite happy with all the Otterbox cases we’ve tried, and we highly recommend them!
