Otterbox (**GIVEAWAY**)


This product was provided free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

We have several media devices in our household, and they get quite a bit of use.  Our two girls use them as well, and between the kids, traveling, and our busy lives, we need good protection for our iPhones and iPad.  I have learned that you really want a case that you can trust!

For my own phone, I chose the OtterBox Defender Series for iPhone 4/4S.  This case is attractive and offers lots of protective features.

The iPhone 4 /4S Defender Series case provides heavy duty protection against drops, dust and damage without taking away from the usability of the iPhone’s features. The iPhone 4S Defender Series case offers triple-layer protection and is built from a high-impact polycarbonate shell, durable silicone slipcover and a built-in screen protector, making it one of the toughest cases for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. Why else do you think we called it the Defender Series? Want to build your own? Check out our Defender Series Build Your Own custom iPhone 4 case.

There are a few dozen colors and designs to choose from – and you can even build your own case by choosing among a variety of outer layer/slipcover combinations.  As soon as I saw this “Perennial” Graphic Design Case, I knew it was the one!  I love the color and design of this case, and I can’t tell you how many compliments I have gotten.

Installing the case was very easy.  The packaging comes with thorough directions, and you can even watch an installation tutorial – however, I had no problems getting the case on my iPhone quickly, even after only a quick glance at the instructions.

This case has a hard plastic polycarbonate shell (inner layer), a built-in screen protector, and an outer silicone layer.  It has built-in flaps to protect parts of the phone like the headphone jack, power button, and volume.  The silicone is contoured and firm enough that it is still easy to use all the features of the phone, unlike some cases I have had (which actually made it more difficult to press certain buttons or access features).

The built-in screen protector is great.  When we first got our iPhones and iPad, we did not use screen protectors, and it is amazing how fast little scratches start to show up.  This way, I know that the case is sparing my phone of all that damage!

A case for our iPad mini is a must.  Our kids use the iPad quite a bit, and I would be lying if I said they were always careful!  Our iPad has been dropped and taken too many tumbles in the few short months we have had it, both at home and in the car.  In fact, we had a cheap case when we first bought the iPad, and within one day, my 4 year old dropped the iPad and the case broke – the stand broke right off.

We decided to get the OtterBox Defender Series for iPad Mini, which has lots of great color choices and combinations available.

These Apple iPad mini tablets are the perfect size for kids and for entertainment on-the-go. Ensure your versatile tablet with that gorgeous display is prepped and ready for use everywhere you go with the rugged Defender Series case in the color combination you choose. Take your iPad mini and iPad mini with Retina display on the plane, the camp trip, to the office and even hand it to your kid on that road trip wrapped in three layers of innovative protection that guard against potential damage from drops, bumps, dust and scratches. The Defender Series case for iPad mini and iPad mini with Retina display absorbs impact force, deflects scratches and is the perfect all-around defense against life’s little mishaps.

As soon as the OtterBox case arrived, my husband and I were both impressed.  You can tell right away that it is a quality product, and it has so many great features!  It has already withstood lots of handling.  I also love that in addition to a built-in screen protector, you can put the hard shell over the top as well.  This is especially great for when we travel, because the iPad gets packed in a bag or shoved into a corner in the car, and I don’t have to worry about something happening to it.

I love the stand that comes with this case.  You can place the iPad on it for two different viewing angles, and you can fold the stand down in the cover so that it lays flat when not in use.  When the kids aren’t using this for their homework, watching shows, and more, I love using this for things like setting up a recipe on the iPad mini on my kitchen counter.

Another great thing is that the case protects things like the buttons and the charging port, but they are still easy to access.  We have used cases where it is difficult to do simple tasks like adjust the volume or turn the iPad off – but the Otterbox has a nice firm cover with lots of detail that allows you to find the buttons easily.

Otterbox makes lots of other great products.  We are thoroughly impressed with the cases we have, and I am pretty sure I will be getting my husband a Defender Series case with iON Intelligence, which has a built-in lithium ion battery that doubles the capacity of your device.

You can find Otterbox cases for Kindle, Blackberry, Samsung, Nokia, LG and more.
