Best choice for me
I didn't want a case too big and thick, and definitely nothing flimsy. This one is right in the middle. The inner soft rubber liner and the separate outer shell keep my new iPhone 11 Pro Max from moving around. The rubber strips on the back line up with my blue jeans rear pocket to help keep it from slipping out, as it's going to be carried there most of the time. A nice added bonus is the Lightning Connector port cover, easy to move if needed but I usually charge using a pad. I'm very happy with this case!
Awesome phone case
One of the best cases on the market for iPhone. Really happy that Otterbox developed a case that was not bulky and slim enough to carry around with much ease. The smooth textured finish makes the phone easy to carry and retrieve from pockets, yet coarse enough to maintain a grip without the constant fear of dropping the phone. Highly recommend!!!!!
VIVA a great choice
The new Viva was a great choice for me. I've owned mini OtterBox cases, where the old commuter and the new slimmer symmetry case we're both pleasant experiences in the past. I had moved on to other vendors but with my new iPhone 11 Pro Max, I wanted to try an OtterBox again. The Viva is slightly thicker than the new symmetry cases, however it feels really great in your hand. It is an improvement over the actual commuter case. It's not as bulky, it feels much thinner in the hand, and the visual appearance is slimmer. The protection is still there and that's one of the key reasons why I went back to OtterBox. I thought I might immediately want to move to a symmetry case but again I'm very happy on how this diva fits in your hand. It is a perfect blend of both square and round combined.
Wireless charging is affected by the use of this case. I was using a Google pixel stand wireless charger on all my previous cases and realized I couldn't with the Viva. I did purchase a nomad and an anchor wireless chargers, and they both work very nicely. The exposed rubber points around the buttons and the two exposed rubber tabs on the back are smart improvements improving the ability to hold the phone and prevents the phone sliding on slick surfaces. The front edge protection is narrower than the commuter, still providing protection but not appearing so thick of an appearance. Feels great in your hand.
so I plan to keep my Viva and use it for sometime to come. I would recommend anyone who's looking for a protective case, that feels slender in the hand, provides good protection, and it's very functional to try the new VIVA.
Great easy to use phone protection
I purchased this phone case about 2 weeks ago to replace a different case I was using. The iPhone 11 max pro is a large heavy phone and I was having trouble picking it up off a table, etc. and actually dropped it a few times. This case has some dimpled grips on each side which make it easier to pick the phone up. Plus it has the inner and outer protective shells.
Best case ever!
I have been using the commuter case for the past 3 years! I had one on my iPhone 7 Plus and just upgraded to the new iPhone 11 pro Max! I don't trust anything else on my brand new, very expensive phone! It keeps my phone safe while also being very easy to slide in my pocket! I hope the commuter will be around for many more years!
One of my best purchases
I bought this at he same time my Iphone 11 PRO MAX was ordered. It arrived one day later, no problem. I'm glad you have it in black. I take many table top photos, the light reflection off of any other color case spoils what would otherwise be a nice shot. Next time that you design a case you must somehow add a Minimum of 1/32 of an inch protection around the camera lens area.
Commuter series continues its great protection!
I bought this the week before iPhone 11 Max shipped as I pre-ordered. It arrived a few days ahead of time, which was great. I really wanted to protect this expensive piece of technology from the start. Just like my previous Otterbox case, this has excellent drop protection while not adding too much bulk to the phone. I'm very happy with my Otterbox Commuter case.
Great but need a clip w it
Live the case awesome only think is I need one of the clips seems it is not made for the commuter case. My iPhone 8 Plus I had the same kind of case w the clip. Overall though besides that top of line protection
Very Good Overall
I purchased an otter box commuter with each of my last several phones. The last time I purchased the flap that protects the lighting port started to wear out at the hinge, faster than the normal 2-3 years. This time it only lasted 9 months or so I bought a new one to keep the port dust free. Otherwise, the case is excellent. Protective, small profile, in and out of pocket without too much grab on fabric, yet not too slippery to hold like the phone itself.
Good case, but slightly weak near the screen top
I have pop socket minis on mine, and just popping them out to use near the screen top, makes the hard part of the case bend and partially release the internal part and the phone.
I am a fan of the commuter series cases, and this didn't happen on my iPhone X, but on the 11 Pro Max, being a larger phone, has some weak points, I guess.
Best Slim Otterbox
Slim version of the commuter series slides in and out of my pocket with ease. My iPhone 11 Pro Max looks way better than the Defender Pro case
Love my cover
The only part that concerns me is the cover on the charger slot. Other than that I think it's pretty awesome
It's slim and still sturdy. The color is fun and bright. I have it without a screen protector and feel safe without one based on the design.
Very nice case!
The Viva case is a nice, very subtle design change from the Commuter. It's a little more protective than the Symmetry and not as bulky as the Defender. Best of both worlds.
Best phone case I've used
Just got a brand new iPhone 11 Pro Max. First day i took it out to work it fell out of my pocket and got run over by a car. The case took all the damage and left my brand new phone without a scratch somehow, genuinely amazed.
Simple design and hardly noticable
I've had the case a week and its already saved the phone twice! Its light and hardly noticeable. Aesthetically, its very sleek and fits in my car holder and has no problem charging on my Qi pad.
Case has a great blend of rubber and hard plastic to protect the phone. Case has protected the phone from many hard falls with no issues. Have had such success with this case I removed insurance.
Not really what I expected
Every since I've owed a iPhone7 I have only used otter covers. I'm really disappointed in this one for my 11pro, the rubber piece doesn't seem to fit right around the top of the phone.
Easy to put together. Covers the phone great. You really can't ever go wrong with an otter box. Fits well with any screen protector you plan on using. Even if it's for the back camera. Smooth back so you can apply a pop socket or what have you
I love Otterbox, have always used their cases. The Commuter is the perfect size for me. Not too bulky but protects my phone when I send it half way across the room because I lost it under a blanket.
My only negative remark about this one is the little lightning port flap thing. I hate those. I cut it off of mine. Would be nice to have an option to not have the flap.
