How Can You Get the Best Protection for Your New Phone?

Protect Your Smartphone with an OtterBox Case

If you have recently purchased an expensive smartphone, an OtterBox Phone Case is the best way to protect your investment.

As the employee of a busy high school, I constantly see cell phones with screens that are so cracked that it is almost impossible to view what is shown on the screen. Often these smartphones are only a few weeks old before the students have dropped the phone or damaged it by putting it in either their jean's pocket, a purse or heavy backpack.

Consequently, when I purchased an iPhone for myself over two years ago, I bought an OtterBox case to protect it. During the past two years, I have dropped my phone multiple times, spilled liquids on it, and shoved it in a variety of purses and bags. Despite my ruthless treatment, my OtterBox has kept my phone safe. The screen is unscratched and the body of the phone is undamaged.

I also like to walk at the beach and my phone is often splashed with salt water. Fortunately, the Otterbox has protected it against this type of abuse, too.

Whether you have an older model of cell phone or you just purchased a new iPhone, you can use the link below to find the right OtterBox for your phone.

Whenever I update my cellphone, the first accessory purchase I will make is to get a new OtterBox.

Don't let your phone go unprotected.

Fully Compatible with Touchscreens

One of the nice features of the OtterBox is that they are fully compatible with a touchscreen phone. I have never had any problems using the features on my touchscreen, despite the fact that it is protected by a heavy, clear plastic protective shield that is part of my case. All the functions on your phone will continue to work, including the camera.

In addition, you are much less likely to scratch or damage the screen because it is protected by the protective shield.

The Otterbox is available in a variety of colors and there are options available for nearly any type of phone. Just click on the blue product name above and you will be taken to its Amazon page where you can see the full range of choices that are available.

My daughters have Otterboxes that are blue and pink. Mine is black. My husband's is grey. There is a choice that everyone will love!


You Can Still Buy These Cases for Older Phones, Too

While they might be hard to find in the stores, you can still order the OtterBox from Amazon for some of the older designs. Even if you have an older phone or a different brand of phone, you can still purchase OtterBox cases for them. In fact, they usually have cases available almost as soon as the new phone models are released.

Whether you have a brand new phone in the latest style and size, or an older model that was passed down to you by a relative or friend, you can find Otterboxes for virtually any phone. If you have trouble finding them in the store, check online at sites like Amazon.

Layers of Protection Provided by the OtterBox

The OtterBox Defender Series phone cases are perfect for anyone who is hard on their cell phones. The case protects the phone from ordinary drops and common types of mistreatment.

The cell phone case has an inner polycarbonate layer and an outer silicone layer, along with a built-in shield for the screen. There are also plug covers that protect the core openings of the phone, such as the volume controls, power button and headphone jack, from moisture.

Do you have an Otterbox, or would you like to get one?

      I can't imagine having a cell phone and not making sure it is fully protected. I see far too many people walking around with cracked screens.

      These look good as my phone gets rough treatment sometimes - especially when it gets thrown into my handbag.

      @WriterJanis2: I would have destroyed my phone the first month if I had not protected it with an OtterBox
