OtterBox Ireland have sent us out the latest case that’s now available for the iphone6/6s from the Symmetry Series collection and this case is quite nice and not a bulky case as some can be so lets take a look at the case and talk some more.
The case is presented in open view packaging as most cases are and its simple to remove having just to cut a cable tie,you can then open the bottom panel which reveals a spongy housing around the bottom of the case keeping it secure in its packing..
Our case is a one piece design which fits nicely around the device not adding much thickness to the phone and feels quite good in hand and is not slippy it gives good grip and you phone is protected from all the aspects with a slight lip over the screen which should be adequate enough,if you already have tempered glass or a screen protector on your phone you are perfectly fine from the elements.. So lets look a bit closer,you can click to enlarge images if required.
On the back of the case there is not much to take in apart from the camera and flash,these are well protected here once the case is fitting which only takes seconds might add,we can see that the camera and flash are well below surface so even if flat on table for example they are clear of any harm and also no interference either so there is nothing to obstruct the lens which some case often do..
Top and bottom of the case also provides maximum protection although the top of the iPhone has nothing to offer compared to some other devices sporting infra red ports,however the bottom on the iPhone is where its at,with the headphone socket charging port and speaker,again these are well recessed and kept away from harms way…
The left side and right side are similar again with buttons either side when the case is applied there is good travel on the keys and no performance affected at all when using keys,this can happen with some cases especially when new but no problems at all here with this case..The on/off key on the left and volume keys and the silent key on right,the silent key is the only one not covered though its easy to access yet kept away from harm with the opening provided.
The case is tough and solid all round with the exterior shell providing protection,there is two soft areas though on the case which are the bottom end and left hand side which supports the volume and silent keys,you will notice this when installing the case on your device,this makes it easier to apply the case but when fitted its solid and the case has no movement at all.You will be pretty safe with this cover as dropping your device can be an expensive mistake especially if your screen breaks. We tried a few drops from arms length and the phone survived all attempts so im happy with that.Starting from €34,99 its a worthy investment,some do prefer to have that naked feel with their device which includes myself but after learning that hard lesson of dropping my device once before I always buy a few cases,you can however remove your case at home if you like and have that naked feel experience.
