Otterbox Statement Series Case Review
Otterbox owes a lot to the iPhone, having reaped the rewards from Apple’s pride and joy with its line ruggedized cases. At the begin, most of its collection consisted of heavy-duty cases that lacked style, opting to favor utility above everything else, but they’ve recently added a couple of new case series that finally brought some pizzazz. Its latest one exclusively for the iPhone 6/6s/6 Plus/6s Plus, the Statement series, is redefining how to show off that iconic iPhone design – while still gracing it with some protective qualities.
Right off the bat, there are three primary cues that stand out looking at the Statement series case. First, there’s the slim, low-profile construction that adds just a little bit of thickness to the phone, which is fabulous considering that most of Otterbox’s cases are generally beefy sized things. Secondly, the clear back enables owners to show off the iPhone’s legendary design without being obstructed. Best of all, your iPhone’s particular color option can now be flaunted – whereas normally, it’s hidden behind whatever case you have on. And finally, the leather accent on the case sprinkles on just a little bit of that sophisticated look, which is a departure from the tough all-plastic chassis we’ve seen in Otterbox’s portfolio.
Much like the majority of its cases, the Statement series features Otterbox’s certified Drop+ Protection, ensuring that the iPhone will be safeguarded in the event it’s dropped. Due to the snug nature of the case, as well as providing a little bit of lip for the display, the case absorbs minor falls to a fair degree. However, seeing that the screen is still exposed, there’s a chance that it might be scratched, or worst yet, damaged if it the phone lands and hits a corner of some sort. So yeah, it might be worth investing in a sturdy screen protector.
