I've always use Otterbox casings for my phones sinc Blackberry Torch. My XS MAX fits right in, but I wish the Defender case comes in Mint color as well.
Simply the best for me
Otterbox defender cases afford me the grip in need in my advanced age. I have the iPhone XS Max for the large display and I find it hard to pick up and hold securely with either the naked phone or with most of the other cases I have used. I like the belt clip as it frees up pocket space. I have used the defender case in all my previous phones and some of my tablets. It's a must have for me!
First time owning an Otter Box case
First time owning an Otter Box case an I love it!
Feel good in the hand and the grip is really nice
too! The people I talked with online when I ordered my case when I had questions were
very helpful and polite as well. The only thing
I would say as a negative would be, trying to
follow the directions that come in the box. Was
kind of confusing. Had to go online and watch
a video to try and figure it out. Other than that,
a big thumbs up! Keep up the good work!
In my line of work always need a reliable tough case since I went to iPhone (8 yrs or so ago) was told best case and have to agree
Super good great heck yeah
Purchased this and didn't think it would work with my wireless charger but...it...DID! Y'all rock! Protection + wireless charging capabilities? You're just showing off at this point
wouldn't dare use my phone without this!
For whatever reason, I'm super rough on a phone and I have never been disappointed with the defender series phone cases! So naturally when I upgraded phones, I HAD to have a new case and this was the case I would even consider!
10 out of 10 for this specific one
This case nails it. That's it, the review is done.
Ok, no seriously, this case has everything, all bases covered.
-The rubber outer protection sleeve is extremely grippy with its firm texture and rubber material, so my phone isn't slipping out of my hand, but instead sticking in it. It's an anti-drop material.
-The screen less display is a huge win. The benefits of Otter Box Defender protection without sacrificing any of the phone's display experience or beauty is absolutely genius and whoever over at Otter came up with that needs a raise. The screen less display makes this case perfect.
-As an aesthetic plus, the small circular window on the back showing off the device logo branding and the actual device color is an extremely nice touch, and much more preferred over options that don't do that.
-The color variations on the website for the rubber protection sleeve and hard plastic shell of the case are fantastic. I was pleased to pick an attractive navy blue rubber sleeve cover for the case as the dominant and most prevalent color, with a nice beige color for the hard plastic shell that acts as the trim, coupled with the window on the back displaying the whiteish-silverish phone color and it's mirror colored device logo all combines for a gorgeous look. The website has about five different options to choose from for sleeve colors and case colors which is great although a few more options would be better.
-The belt clip that allows the clip to pull out into a kickstand so the phone can sit up on its own is terrific.
-And of course it's the Otter Box Defender so it provides peace of mind in protection.
This case is secure, protective, attractive, great to hold and offers a ton of nice touches, 10 out of 10.
Very sturdy Case
I am happy with the case. Drop the phone few times with the case and it really holds up well.
The clip is also very useful. It protects the phone well.
Not The best
This is definately not the best case I've had by otter box. For one there is no good enough reason to go screenless. The case seems to be just as durable as all the others I've had. Otterbox has a quality product but should not have took away the screen on the defender series
Nice but no screen protector
Just had it a few days but so far so good. Why they took away the built in screen protector I'll never know. That in itself will make me look at other cases in the future because this is a very expensive case and the screen protector should be included.
Best Case I've Owned!
I've had this case for over a week now and it is fantastic! The case went on with ease, it provides the protection I expected it to, and it fits comfortably in my hands! My job requires me to wear a large belt that is similar to the belts police wear (although I'm not in law enforcement). The belt I wear for work is 2 inches wide, the clip on the holster for this case doesn't quite fit on my belt, however, it still goes on and keeps my phone right where I need it. That would be the only reason I would rate it 4 stars, but it is not advertised to fit belts this large, so I still give this 5 stars!
I also have had a little bit of a hard time when I need to silence or unsilence my phone. The protective cover for that switch is a little stiff, which is great to keep dirt and other stuff away from my phone, but for my lifestyle, the cover isn't necessary. For more strenuous lifestyles, I'm sure this is perfect!
So overall, I love the case! It does exactly what I wanted it to do, exceeds my expectations, and keeps my phone safe! Highly recommend!
I bought this last week for my 17yr old lad as I purchased the IPhone xs max for him he struggles with holding a case as he degloved his hand 4yrs ago and gripping is difficult this case is the best great texture feels solid looks fantastic would recommend this to every one with expensive phone. Well done otterbox.
It even charges wirelessly
I bought this before my Xs Max came in. I thought I was giving up wireless charging by using this case. Not the case. LOL No pun intended. It charges wirelessly right through the case. They don't even tell you this. They should definitely let people know this in big letters right on the front page. Great case.
Great Otterbox iPhone Carrier
Bought a new OtterBox Defender case/carrier and screen protection kit a couple of months ago. Both snapped and fit perfect and I was ready to go five minutes after the package arrived. Was surprised by the built in tripod feature using the clip hold back detent. That will great for traveling and viewing some video on my iPhone Xs Max. Great accent color to match case utility. Thanks OtterBox!
Long time Otterbox Customer
OtterBox is the best Case on the market. Since the iPhone four all my phones Are protected by the defender case and always well.
I bought it because of its durability. It's a good case, I just would like to have saw a screen cover come with it
Love the case BUT
The case is awesome camo, but since it's screen less, not worth the amount of money it was since both ur screen and camera is not protected
From my very first defender series purchase...
All my handsets have enjoyed the best protection to a smartphone offered by Otterbox. My colleagues are also buying the same product in droves because they see the kind of protection your product offers
Great protection for my phone
I love the otter box. Well worth the money. I wish they had better color choices but I love it. My phone is secure and it also helps me to hold my phone. It has like a non slip rubbery plastic so it's scruwlly harder to drop the phone when it's on.
Great case but expensive
Bought this for my new iPhone Xs Max. Best case for protection but overpriced in my opinion. Knock off versions for half the price and offer about the same protection. I'll use this case at work and a slimmer one everywhere else.
