Otterbox is on the verge of branding when it comes to mobile device protection. If you are unfamiliar with this term, it is when a brand or product is referred to when talking about the entire category.
Otterbox is getting very close to this point when it comes to cellphone cases. Why? Simply stated, they are the best protection you can find for your mobile device. So instead of making an a/b comparison of Otterbox and one of their competitors, today we will compare Otterbox to Otterbox. Simply put, it would be a waste of all of our time to compare Otterbox to another cellphone case.
We will look at two products from Otterbox, both designed for the same phone, a Samsung S20. During the review, keep in mind that the attributes of the cases will apply no matter what kind of phone you have.
The first case we are going to look at today is the Defender. I remember the Defender I had for my Samsung S7. It was a great case but a bit bulky. Fast forward a few years and Otterbox seems to have slimmed down the design while still offering the same great protection.
This updated product has the same drop and dust protection as the original. The case also comes with a beefy holster with a clip-on designed to take almost any punishment. Still, I appreciate the slimmer design with the same excellent protection.
I also looked at the Symmetry series. The Symmetry series case is designed for a streamlined fit. This line is not as robust as the Defender but still offers more protection than you will find in the budget cases found in mall kiosks. Phenomenal protection with one-piece construction. Not only does the Symmetry series give protection, but it does so in a stylish way.
The Symmetry Series case also offers what I feel are some of the funkiest colors and finishes. The Symmetry Series case is also “pocket-friendly”, meaning the case is so thin it feels as if there is no case at all when you slide it in your pocket.
Both offerings from Otter Products offer different but impressive levels of protection. There is also many style options to consider. The bottom line is no matter which case you choose; you cannot make a bad choice.
