    Awesome iPhone case

    Since finding the Otterbox symmetry style case years ago, it's been all I've used for whatever iPhone I happen to have. While the plain black isn't as cool as a graffiti pattern I stumbled across (also years ago), the protection is amazing. These cases hold up extremely well as time goes on, and show almost no wear from daily use. While the backside isn't extremely grippy, I have not had any problems losing my grip or dropping my phone. Unlike some other brands and other styles of cases, this is also easy to keep clean, and isn't a crazy fingerprint magnet. Sometimes I get "bored" and go out and buy a new case, and I (seriously) always end up removing it and putting the symmetry back on. While it can be debated as to whether or not its the best LOOKING case, once you use it and get used to it, it's hard to debate that in terms of functionality, durability, and aesthetics that it is pretty darn incredible.

    Very thin and streamlined phone case that protects

    I was looking for a new iPhone case that gave me the same overall protection, but was smaller and more streamlined. I wanted a case that I can easily slide in and out of my front pocket. This phone case fit the bill and is perfect! Keep in mind there is no built in screen protection, but it hasn't been an issue. I bought a separate glass screen protector when I bought this case, but I never installed glass screen protector. I've even dropped my phone a couple times and this case has done it's job and phone screen has had absolutely no damage! This is a great phone case!

    My Wife Loves It, And I Love Otterbox.

    My wife LOVES Apple products. She owns a Mac, 2 iPads, an iPod and an iPhone 8. I bought her a clear case for her iPod a few years ago, and when we recently acquired her iPhone, she insisted on a clear case because she wanted the "Apple" logo to be visible. Mission accomplished. Plus, it's an Otterbox, a product for which I have expressed great affinity for toughness and impact resistance. I added a finger grip to the rear of the case because my dear wife tends to be a bit of a butterfingered klutz at times. But it's a very good case, and I recommend it.

    OtterBox - Symmetry Series Case for Apple® iPhone®

    I purchased this item for my husband & he is very pleased with it. This otter box is slim & it does everything the original otter boxes did, without the hassle of being bulky. It is also designed so perfectly that it fits in pockets easily without a fuss. It is also see through, enabling the niceness of the phone to be transparent. I really recommend it because it saves you tons of money if you accidentally drop your phone. It keeps it safe from breakage. This is a wonderful product.

    Feel like I just got a new phone

    I've been loyal to the otter box brand for years to protect my iPhone. I usually have a Defender on there but I kept breaking the plastic belt holster for it. So in need of a smaller, slimmer case, I tried this one and I love it. It looks great, feels great, and the screen being uncovered isn't hindered visually anymore. I feel like I have a new phone and I've had this iPhone 7 for years. I have accidentally dropped my phone a couple of times since the case has been on it and its done its job perfectly.

    This was not my first choice but, it was my best choice. I originally went with a case from another company that I’ve used for years. I wasn’t too comfortable with the fit of the case on my iPhone 7 so I looked for another clear case that would offer me “protection comfort”. The protection over the responsive buttons seem a little stiff, but I’m hoping it becomes easier to use over time and use. Overall, I’m happy with my choice.

    Daughter loves it

    My daughter picked this case because she wanted the glitter look and she said this one has the best look of all the glittery cases she looked at. I was happy it was a good brand like Otterbox so my investment is protected. Got a great Black Friday price at Best Buy. No complaints. We bought this for an iPhone 6s. The product description says its for iPhone 7/8. It does "fit" the 6s with the exception that the audio jack is not completely exposed. Not a big deal for my daughter as she has no issue using bluetooth headphones or the lightning adapter for her earbuds.

    Excellent case

    This case is great. It's much thinner than my previous case and with that I was worried that it would offer less protection - not so. It has a good bezel on the front face to keep the glass from contacting surfaces. I like that it has some texture to it, so it will stay in my hand, but not so much that it would be difficult to get out of my pocket (some of the more 'rubbery' cases tend to get caught on fabric). Also, good amount of clearance for the lightning port, even with a non-Apple cord. Overall excellent case.

    Best Case Ive Had!

    Cavvy

    SO I purchased one of these cases for my old iphone 7 when i got it and i kept that same case with no damage to my phone for two and a half years and now i just upgraded to the iphone 8 and bought a new one. This is the best case to buy for protection if you dont like how the other larger, Bulkier otterboxes feel on your phone like i dont. i give this case a 10/10 in feel and design and a 9/10 in protection because obviously the bigger otterboxes are better for that. :)

    Can't compare the Otterbox cases with any other brand. They hold up well and protect the phone like no other case. The fact that my young female teen liked this clear case with some sparkly imprint design on the back is a testament that Otterbox is now coming up with impressive color schemes. She was so happy. It was the ONLY case she picked out and as soon as we were told it was an Otterbox Symmetry--- it was a no brainer. This has been a trusted brand over and over.

    This case was exactly what I was looking for. I just recently purchased the iPhone 8 (gold) and I thought the phone was way too pretty to hide behind a case. This case offers a transparent view while not compromising on protection. I've already dropped my phone hundreds of times, and the case has done so well to protect it from any damage! I'll absolutely buy it again if I need to.

    OtterBox cases

    This is probably my 3rd OtterBox case and all of them have saved my phone at one time or another. This one did as well a week after getting it. My phone fell out of my pocket and landed right on the corner of the phone. If I did not have the case on my phone, it surely would have broke! Thanks OtterBox another great product.

    Durable, yet not overly-bulky

    In the past, OtterBox cases were known for their durability, yes, but also how bulky and ridiculous they were. I was apprehensive about purchasing one for my new phone, but the amount of protection is unparalleled. Even though these cases are not as "sleek" as the ones offered by Apple and fashion companies, they offer a great level of protection.

    Slim and Protective Case

    This is a great case for protecting your iPhone, while remaining slim and non-bulky. It rises above the screen level on the front, so you also don't really need a scree protector unless you are very prone to dropping your phone. I have this case on my work phone and another on my personal phone and have never had any issues. Well-worth the price of admission!

    OtterBox offers Great Protection

    When I purchased an iPhone 8 I needed a new cover to protect it, so I decided to get an OtterBox because the price was reasonable compared to other brands and because it has a good reputation for providing protection for mobile phones. It is also slim and doesn't make keeping my iPhone in my pocket a problem. The only small problem is that I have to really press hard on the side button to make the iPhone sleep. Otherwise it is a great product.

    This is my 3rd IPhone, and my 3rd OtterBox. I have had great luck with all three of them. Since I retired, I am not as hard on my phones, so I scaled back on the amount of protection I wanted, but made sure that I was protected from dropping my phone. I have not had a long drop yet, but if it holds up like the last two, I have nothing to worry about.

    This case provides great protection from dropping your phone. Dropped my phone many times on concrete with glass facing downward and phone glass was unharmed. Rugged construction and holds up to wear. I do not use a glass protector and this case does not come with one but I’ve never had an issue. It’s not the prettiest case but it does the job very well.

    This is the Otterbox case I have ever bought. I usually am not a big fan of their cases because they are too bulky. This one is perfect, it gives great protection and it doesn't double the size of your phone!! Plus the clear is great because you get to actually see the phone. Def will go this route again on my next case.

    I was hesitant to go with this case as I used a different brand with my previous phone and never had any issues. But, this case was in-store when I upgraded to a new phone and I did not want to go without. Despite the lackluster color selection offered in store, I have been completely satisfied with this purchase. I haven't dropped my phone yet, though, so we shall see...

    I’m really happy with this case. I’ve previously bought cheap cases which protected my phone but always had to be replaced the first time I dropped. This case is a lot more substantial without being bulky. I’ve already dropped my phone once and there is no visible damage to the case, much less my phone.
