iPhone 5 Otterbox Commuter

The iPhone 5 is arguably one of the best smartphones on the market, but it's also something of a fragile device. The screen's size, larger than that of previous models, means there's more glass that can be scratched and cracked. The iPhone's light frame doesn't provide much protection for internal components.

Luckily, an iPhone 5 OtterBox case can protect the smartphone from some of the harshest conditions. The rubber sleeves are sturdy, but aren't so rigid that it's uncomfortable to use your phone while it's being protected. The material also has enough flexibility and padding to protect an iPhone when it's dropped or jostled.

The iPhone 5 OtterBox Commuter series works well for people who are constantly on the go. A case doesn't add a great deal of bulk to an iPhone and fits snugly around the device. Some other protective sleeves are heavy, which can be bothersome for users who want lightweight smartphones.

OtterBox cases come bundled with screen protectors, as well. You don't want unsightly scuffs and scratches on your display, so it's important to keep the screen covered. OtterBox's covers are also smudge-resistant, so you don't have to constantly clean your screen.

While a protective, comfortable case is what most shoppers look for, some want something more stylish. iPhone 5 OtterBoxes come in a variety of colors, so consumers can pick out cases that match their personal tastes.

An iPhone's internal ports are highly susceptible to damage from dust. The OtterBox Commuter case line has covers for every jack, so no small debris can slip into the smartphones and harm the components.

OtterBox iPhone 5 covers offer unmatched protection from almost any type of damage. The case can keep your smartphone like new for years, even if you're prone to dropping the fragile device.

The Commuter Series iPhone 5 case is not only sleek enough to slide into your pocket, but also tough enough to toss into your bag. Built with two-layers of protection and an adhesive screen protector, the Commuter Series iPhone 5 case provides the protection that will keep your device looking stylish while you stay on top of your highly connected life. If you're looking for a more rugged case for your butterfingers, check out the Defender Series iPhone 5 case.

  • newegg All-Around Protection Sporting interior rubber layer cushioning the iPhone 5, sleek exterior shell deflecting impact away from the iPhone 5 and adhesive screen protector preventing smudges and scrapes (comes with bubble squeegee), the OtterBox Commuter provides all-around protection for your iPhone 5.
  • newegg Uninhibited Interactivity Although your phone is protectively wrapped around by the case, all features and functions are easily accessible without any fuss, such as the camera, microphone, volume controls and charging port.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat overall case!

This review is from: OtterBox Commuter Black Solid Case For iPhone 5 77-21912

Pros: This case is compact enough to fit in your pocket without making you uncomfortable, but tough enough to protect your investment. Price! - Got on sale for $10, you can't beat that!

Cons: Rubber parts of the case tends to wear off and get debris on the screen for the first couple months.

3 out of 5 eggsConflicted

This review is from: OtterBox Commuter Black Solid Case For iPhone 5 77-21912

Pros: Solid case. Haven't dropped it but I'm sure it'd protect it just fine

Cons: This is where the conflict comes in. It seems like this case was designed to protect it from itself. The back is ridiculously slick - as in it slides on every surface I put it on. Slides off the car seat, the center console, counter tops, table tops. If it has any lateral momentum when you place it on a surface it will slide. My wife has had it go sailing across the car, across counters and into sinks. We've both since replaced the case with others as it's just silly how slippery the back of the case really is. So at least I feel like it's protected when it goes sliding off the counter and onto the floor.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case Buttons Hard to Push

This review is from: OtterBox Commuter Black Solid Case For iPhone 5 77-21912

Pros: I really like how it fits on my Phone. Otter box makes great quality products.

Cons: The main power/hold button on the phone is hard to press but maybe ill get used to it

Other Thoughts: I also had an htc inspire commuter otter box case which had a similar issue with the power button on the case. Perhaps otter box doesn't make the cases well enough for buttons but they do a heck of a job protecting the phone.
