Phone cases
« on: May 30, 2020, 07:16:01 AM »
I got a work phone.  :-\  I need a protective device. It’s an iPhone 11 S and I’m told repair or replacement would not be cheap. Any recommendations for a good case / holder?  Tks

I've been happy with OtterBox Commuter cases (not as beefy as the Defender series) but I'm super easy on phones. I could probably count the number of times my phone has been dropped in the last 10 years on one hand.

+1 on the otter box. Have been using them for years, dropping the phone banging into things on the job, no issues at all. I took the phone out of the box for a road trip to make it a bit slimmer. Pulled it out of my pocket to take a picture and dropped it. You guessed it, screen shattered. Phone stays in the box now.

On the other end, I have been very pleased with the Apple case. It is has been dropped numerous times with the apple case on, even on concrete, with zero cracks or issues. Make sure you get a good screen protector (impact kind) and keep your phone at a reasonable size.

I have a lot of friends that love the otterbox, in fact, my work issues them with out phones. I personally can't stand them. I can't comfortably keep my phone in my pocket with that huge rubber case, they never stay clean, and I don't like the plastic protector over the screen. Just my 0.02.

So many good cases on amazon that you can certainly find one that meets your liking.

I have always had some sort of protective case and screen protection. I've never had to replace a screen or a phone. An ounce of prevention and all. The last phone had the Otterbox Defender and I agree with Doc... too bulky. And I never used the belt clip part. Do you plan to carry the phone in a pocket or clipped to your belt? That needs to be part of the decision.

I have a slimmed down Otterbox case now. Goes into a clothes pocket or the purse pocket. I have a Galaxy A50.

Otter box defender works great been dropped out of my pickup, off my motorcycle, been banged into everything imaginable from job sites to caves and never an issue. 
the above are merely the ramblings of a hamfisted fuckwit who has broken too many helmets.
