Answers

A: 
The bright colors fade and look really dirty over time. If you chose the lighter colors (I chose the lime green) you will not be happy with the look. The protection aspects are great, dropped numerous times and not a scratch on my iPhone.

A: 
We test all of our cases for durability and have not found any discoloration to the Symmetry Series case for iPhone 5/5S. It is possible that a lighter color case may stain if exposed to certain dyes or pigments, but the case itself will not become yellowed on its own. Of course, all of our cases are protected by an amazing warranty. If your case should ever become discolored for any reason, our warranty team would be happy to assist you!

No. You wouldn't want a film in front of the camera anyhow. The lens coating is sapphire, so you shouldn't worry about scratching the lens.

If I understand your question correctly, no. There is nothing over the camera hole. In my opinion you wouldn't want anything over the camera, it would just get scratched and make your pictures blurry.

A: 
Perhaps there is an additional accessory that you can buy for this purpose, but with the basic case there is NO membrane covering the camera. While this case is slim, the camera hole is still deep enough to provide some protection for the camera, however. Hope that helps!

A: 
I have dropped it several times and my phone is just fine. I mountain bike and use my defender case for that only because of the screen protection, but I would use this case and not worry about damage. I am confident that it would protect it just fine. I do not like my screen covered for daily use.

A: 
The Symmetry series doesn't have screen protection, but it has pretty good protection against drops. I loved the new style choices of the Symmetry, so I purchased a screen protector to use with it to protect against scratches, etc. I also have the Armor series that I use when kayaking, biking, and in other tough situations. I got my dad the Defender. Whatever you choose, you can't go wrong with Otterbox! I sound kind-of like an ad from the company, but my best friend recommended I get an Otterbox when I got an iPhone, and I've been really happy with them.

A: 
It is less bulky and with the separate screen cover, I can get instant response when I touch the screen. With the defender, sometimes there was not an instant response. I think it is as protective. I am very careful with my phone, though I have dropped it a few times. I am confident with the Otter Box protection.

A: 
The Defender will give your phone more cushioning and the built-in screen protector (not part of the Symmetry series) will guard against scratches. If you're concerned about dust, sand, etc. getting into your ports, the Defender is a good choice because it will keep them covered.

On the flip side, the Symmetry is a good choice if you want a lighter, less bulky case, and it's easier to slide in and out of your pockets. It also keeps the headphone and USB ports open, which is nice if you're using them a lot. No built-in screen protector with this case, but you can purchase a screen guard separately if you're so inclined.

I haven't had a Defender but I have had the Commuter. The Symmetry is a thinner design, not chunky. It doesn't even look like an Otterbox except for the logo on the back. The Symmetry does not have covers over the holes for the charger connection, volume buttons, etc.

A: 
It is a lot less bulky. You do not have a screen guard with this case but you can order one. It is a lot easier to type on because of the rounded edged that don't stick up high. Headphone jack is super accessible and hard plastic on the outside still gives you lots of protection.

THE MUSIC NEVER STOPS

OtterBox has never looked so good. Here's a sampling of the fun colors, graphics and protection of the Symmetry Series.

Product Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 295 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good, thin case I wanted an Otterbox for my first ever smartphone (iPhone 5S). I know the Defender and Commuter series offer more protection, but I needed a case that would fit in my pocket. This series case was easy to slip onto my phone. I like that it comes without a built in screen protector, because I already have one on my phone (tempered glass). I chose the "cardinal" color, which I thought was dark gray/black plastic and red rubber trim. The case I received is a medium gray and the red is more of a red-orange. I was a little disappointed by this because red and black are my favorite colors. Also, I have noticed the red rubber gets stained by the dye in my jeans when I put my phone in my pocket. I recall friends being annoyed by this. Problem will be solved if you choose a case with a dark color rubber. I have dropped my phone on the floor once or twice, it was fine. Most recently I accidentally threw my phone to the floor when I meant to place it on a counter top. It bounced off the stone floor tile and then onto the wooden counter furniture, and then back to the floor. I picked it up and it is fine! If you want good protection, but a slim case for handling, I suggest the Symmetry case! I also like that the majority of the case is hard plastic, which makes it easier to slide into pockets etc. Its not too slippery for the hand though, it has a slight texture to it when holding it. April 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just perfect! I've had this case for around 6 months and have been so happy with it. I've dropped it numerous times (I'm a clumsy person) and the screen hasn't cracked or anything. Before the Symmetry, I had a 'Defender' which was way too bulky for my liking, so I was so happy when Otterbox brought out this design. It fits really easily into small purses, too - unlike the Defender. My only (minor) complaint is that the rubber around the outside of the case stained easily from the dye of my jeans when it was in my pocket (I have the pale pink triangle design with a lilac rubber trim). Hard to know whether this is more a fault of the rubber or fault of the jeans, though. Overall, it's a great lightweight case, that looks pretty good (but is really good looking for a 'protection' style case) and absorbs shock-damage to your iPhone brilliantly. Highly recommended! March 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great case. Thin enough to look good yet protects very well. March 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great protection - weird color I love the protection of this case - after several drops onto asphalt, my phone and screen are still intact. I like the fact that I still have great protection, but don't have to carry such a bulky case. The only complaint I have is the color. I ordered the cardinal online expecting a similar color to that pictured: RED. What I got I see as bright orange and co-workers see as salmon or coral. It was resting on my desk, near a neon pink Post-It note and it actually matched that color very closely. It's not the end of the world, but if you're looking for red, don't order this.
