Once again we are back at it reviewing another one of OtterBoxes newest cases (at the time of receiving it). We thought since we were planning on getting the iPhone 6S Plus that we should get something to protect a device that costs upwards of $1300 unlocked for a 64GB model. Whenever we think about cases for a device, it’s hard not to think that one of the first brands we consider is OtterBox. Known to have a vast selection and quality products we decided to take a chance on the Symmetry series. Check out below for our thoughts on the matter.
The case comes in the typical OtterBox packaging (yellow and black) and the typical OtterBox propaganda pamphlet showing you how to install your device into the case and about the limited product warranty. After we get the case out we see it is the silicone inside with a tough outer shell. When the device is in the case the silicone will buffer the device and the hard shell is meant to take the brunt of the force and keep on protecting.
Once the case is on the device you will notice a little bit of width added to the side of the device, to be expected of course and minimal addition to depth of the device. One of the nice features of the Symmetry Series is the edge of the case is raised, allowing you to place the iPhone 6S Plus down with the screen facing the table and the screen will not touch the table. Moving on from the edges, the right hand side has the power button and the left side has the volume buttons. They press down easily and don’t require much effort which is sometimes the case with cases. The bottom of the case has the charge port, the speaker panel and the 3.5mm headphone jack open and accessible.
We think that the Symmetry Series cases are the way to go for those looking for style and protection in a case. We have been using it for a number of weeks and we have to say that it works out quite well and with children it is a dream, especially those who are in the middle of teething. Have an OtterBox Symmetry Series case? Let us know in the comments below. Until the next review, Happy Hacking!
