Post Type

One of the most famous brands of smartphones and tablet cases, has made another great product.
The Otterbox Commuter for the iPhone 5s is one of the best cases you can find for the iphone 5/5s, if  drop and scratch protection is your main concern.

Protection:
Otterbox is famous mainly due to their brilliant rugged cases. They are tough, made out of quality matrrerials and they have one main purpose – to protect your phone in various extreme conditions.  The commuter series offers the same protection as the Defender series, but without the screen transparent plastic cover, and just like the defender – it’s not waterproof. Together with a screen protector, the Otterbox Commuter should protect your iPhone 5/5s against serious drops. bumps and scratches. If you’re someone who spends a lot of time outdoors, or if you spend a lot of time on your feet at work, the Commuter is the perfect choice for protecting your investment. The inner layer is made out from flexible rubber and its purpose is to protect your phone against drops. The outer shell is made out from hard plastic and its purpose is to protect your device against hits bumps and scratches. There is a raised lip over the screen that should protect your screen when you’re placing it face down on a flat surface, or if you drop your phone on the screen. The lip is pretty noticeable and should help you to protect your device even if you drop it or a surface that’s not entirely flat. The buttons are also protected with the silicone layer and are not very easy to press and not very hard to press either. Perfect balance.

Design:
The Otterbox Commuter is pretty bulky, as should be expected from a serious two layer case that offers top notch protection. Even though its bulky, Otterbox designers did a very good job with insuring that the case would still look luxurious and solid. You can see a cut out from behind that shows the famous Apple logo and under it you can see the Otterbox logo. The case comes in various colors, so you don’t have to go all black. Over all, there are prettier dual layer cases out there. We find the Commuter for the iPhone 5/5s to be a bit boring relatively to other cases in terms of design, but yet again, you don’t buy an Otterbox case if the design is your main concern.

Conclusion:
The Otterbox Commuter for thee iPhone 5s is one of the best dual layer cases out there for the iPhpne 5s. Its two layers of protection, together with its superb raised lip, offers top notch protection for your iPhone 5/5s. The design is a bit boring and the case is pretty bulky, but this is what you get when protection is your first priority.
