    I like the concept, but it could have been better.

    PROS: interchangeable accessories, olloclip compatible CONS: no screen or camera protection, lack of grip makes it easier to drop, sometimes hard to remove attachments I already owned the Otterbox Defender, but as a person who likes to take photos with my phone I was looking to enhance them by purchasing an olloclip. Of course they are incompatible with each other, so when I read that Otterbox made a case that you could attach an olloclip and other accessories, I thought this would be great. The interchageable accessories does what I needed it to do, unfortunately you'll have to make some sacrifices in the protection of your phone. Because it is made to work with an olloclip (you have to buy the one made for the uniVERSE case) there is no protection for the screen or the rear facing camera. DO NOT buy a ZAGG glass protector or any thick screen protector because the olloclip will not fit and pretty much chip the edges. I bought a Belkin film-type protector which they don't sell at BB and at least this gives some scratch protection. With the reduced protection I worry more about dropping my phone. I wish it had more grip like my old Defender case, but this case has a smooth hard plastic finish which makes it a little slippery. Be careful! Another problem I have with the case is the way you change out the accessories. It requires you to slide them out with quite a bit of force sometimes resulting in the item flying off. Also the edges of the connection point are a little sharp and if you're not careful you can cut yourself. They should have made a quick-release switch which could have made things much easier. The two accessories I purchased were the olloclip and the Polarpro Trippler tripod. Go to their product pages to see my reviews. In conclusion, before you buy this case, look at the accessories available and if you don't really need them, look for something else with more protection. I hope future versions of this case will take care of some of these issues. Until they do, I just can't recommend it.

    Surprisingly versatile

    I was initially interested in this case because it offered a few different options that I thought were nice to have. I didn’t buy it in the past because I always went with a life case for the waterproofing. Once I got a phone that had better water resistance, I bought this for the external battery and memory upgrades. I also like that there is an accessory that makes attaching to a vehicle/motorcycle/bike easier. I know that this case didn’t really catch on initially but this really is a good case with some well thought out options. I hope they continue producing them

    Since having my first cell phone, I have never found "the right" case. It either looks good, or protects well, or has a great functional add on. Never could I find one that did it all, until the Universe Case. Having used Otterbox cases before I always liked the protection they offered, but they just didn't fit the right business look. The Universe looks sleek and professional, offers the level of protection I expect from Otterbox, and has the functionality of the add on modules. Bottom line is that this is finally the case.

    Wanted the Otterbox Commuter, but...

    I was really looking for a Commuter to replace the one I already had, but I have decided I like the universe better. My iPhone 6 fits better in the case, it's slim to easily slide in and out of my pocket, and the potential add-ons are pretty neat. I am mostly interested in the additional battery, but I have not purchased any yet. Overall, though, I like this case. It's been about a month or so and it is holding up very well so far. Good purchase!

    Perfect case to protect your phone

    I bought this case for my daughter, as she recently got a newer iPhone. I wanted a case that would protect her phone from bumps and drops and this is performing well so far. It protects the phone all around and is made from hard plastic. I would definitely recommend this type of case for your son or daughter, if you're worried about them damaging their phone.

    I purchased this to use with the removable, and rechargeable, battery. It was a perfect solution! I needed my iPhone to play a video feed, for the duration of eight hour shifts, and now I can do so without fear of running out of battery power. Could not be happier with this solution. One iPhone, one case, two removable batteries (one as a primary and one as a spare). P.e.r.f.e.c.t.

    Finally, a case that provides protection and functionally, and still slim enough to carry phone in your pocket. Have used both the vent mount adapter and the snap on wallet. Both do exactly what they are designed for. Will try the power adapter next. Have finally found a case that I will keep because it makes sense.

    I recently had to purchase a new phone because I cracked the screen on the one I had previously. I purchased this Best Buy case online and picked it up in store the following morning. The case is sleek and very light weight. I've dropped my new phone twice and it's still working perfectly !

    My son bought this as a Xmas present for his mother.. She normally likes the thin "cute" cases but tried this one to please him. A few days later her phone was knocked out of her hand, landing on concrete and making her a OtterBox believer. Also got her the lens and credit card attachment.

    This case works great with all of the attachments. The case is very slim so it was a nice change but I ended up having to return it because I didn't feel it offered the same protection as a full otterbox case. Over all if you don't drop your phone much or are in a harsh environment like me it's a great case.

    Best case ever. I love it because of the multiple options I have to add on to my case like additional storage, wallet, external battery, camera, etc. Easily switch options while still getting easy access to all my ports. Good deal for a case. I would recommend this case to all.

    bought it thinking it would work for the Iphone 7

    I got this for my iphone 7 because the 6 is the same size, the camera is the only thing that keeps it from locking into place since they are in different location on the 7 than the iphone 6(s) and its size difference as well. it would be good when available for the 7 in the future

    Otterbox already has a good reputation with phone cases. Now they have exceeded by making it multi-functional. By adding slots you can expand the usefulness with adding a mod for extra memory, adding a "go-pro type" attachment, a battery charger, or even a card reader.

    This case is great. I can use my 128 GB memory stick with my iPhone, instead of buying a more expensive iPhone at the time. I love this case, because it still protects my phone but is also sleek and stylish. Definitely worth purchasing.

    Love the idea of a case that is built for other companies to design compatible products for. Hope this catches on. Right now the only downside is some of the compatible products are awful. Some are great. You have to find out which is which.

    Love this case for my iPhone 6 and when I upgraded to the 7 it works but it won't allow for the camera attachment but I don't use it only the battery. I really hope they keep this line of case it is the most functional they have imo

    I've been been an otter box fan for years, this by far is one of there best cases ever , its slim and adds actual function to the phone much similar to what the android community is doing with "modular devices"

    Solid build and good protection. I like the slotted back for the add-ons. The only improvement I would like to see is a little more front protection with a slightly higher ridge.
