Updated on February 20, 2011

Droid 2 by Motorola


A little information about Droid 2 by Motorola

Droid 2 by Motorola seems to be able to do everything, bud can it protect itself from drops, scratches and dust?. Droid 2 is a powerful smartphone with a beautiful design. It features slide out keyboard for easy texting and a touch screen. You can download thousands of apps and use your smart phone as a mini computer while on the go. Stay connected with Twitter and Facebook applications and shop millions of online stores with the internet browser of the Droid 2. It has a 5 mega pixel camera, which can be used for taking pictures as well as to record videos. You can do alot of things with it, but in order for the phone to last long, you will need a protection case.

Commuter for Droid 2 by Motorola


Such A Slim Device Needs A Slim Protection

Such a slim device as Droid 2 by Motorola needs a slim protection like Otterbox Commuter.

Otterbox usually makes three series of cases: Defender, Commuter and Impact, but for Droid 2 they only make the Commuter Series cases. Commuter cases are very slim, 3 layer protection case, which comes with a self adhesive screen guard ( clear film, which goes over the screen to protect the screen from scratches). Otterbox Commuter will protect Droid 2 from drops, scraches, shock and dust, while leaving all the features accessible. The Commuter protects the screen, the back and all the ports while letting you use the touch screen, keyboard, headphone jack, and the charging port. It means once the phone is in the case, there is no need to take it out of the case.

Commuter case is priced at 34.95 plus shipping from OtterBox's web site and its only 17.99 from

Barely There


How about protective cases other than OtterBox

Well, there are millions of manufactures who make protective cases for smart phones, but none of them make similar products to OtterBox. For example: Case-Mate makes a case for Droid 2 called Barely There. its just a plastic hard case which covers the back of the phone and protects from scratches only and will never protect it if you drop your phone. It doesnt even cover the front of the phone, i mean it has to go at least around the edges of the screen, but it doesn't. Barely There is priced at $19.99 and seriously i have no idea whats the point of having a case like that on your Phone. Once you drop your phone with that case on it, the case will crack open.

OtterBox Commuter has a soft and a hard case layer which absorbs shock, protects from scratches, and will never crack open if you drop your phone with it. Make your Droid 2 drop proof and let it live a longer life.

If you think there are any other companies that do the same quality cases as OtterBox or even better, let me know by leaving a comment. 

Thank You for reading all of it, please rate the hub if you liked it and if you want others to know about it.
