Reviews
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 314 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sharp looking case I always choose otterbox as the case for my iPhone and ipad, as they are the absolute best in protection, but maintain cool looks with their designer series. When I purchased this case I thought it was going to be like my old one, with the inner and outer shell. It is the one piece design, without the protective piece for the screen. However, it does have a raised edge to protect the screen should it fall, so I'm hoping this holds true. The lack of the built in screen protection is my only concern. Other than that the case is exactly what I would want and have come to expect from the otterbox line. On the esthetic point of view this case hits the mark with 5 stars. The colors are vibrant and beautiful and it's so strange to receive compliments on a phone case, but it is a work of art on a phone! All ports have easy access and the case being a one piece design is much sleeker and slimmer. All in all, a great case and the comfort of knowing it's an otterbox, a case I trust. January 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jazzy design I love the Brazilian Pop design on my Otterbox case. The colors are vibrant, bright as I like colors to be. It fits my 5S beautifully. January 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorite box Great product. It has already saved me numerous times. December 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Just purchased our 3rd and 4th Otterbox cases with a gift certificate were won at a silent auction (YAY to Otterbox for supporting local, charitable events with a donation!). The first two served their purpose- the case was beat up, but the phone was/is perfectly fine! Loving the colors of my new one and my husband enjoys the slenderness of the Symmetry. I had to use customer service (for an error on my part) and they were quick, helpful, and friendly. December 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love it! I'd been waiting for something from Otterbox more interesting than just a one color or bi-color design and was happy to see this! I got the one called Brazilian Pop. Love the colors. Love the slim fit. Only thing is I expected to get one of those clear screen protectors with it like you get with the commuter series. For the same price as the commuter series, you get less protection. Still, I love all the colors! Bring on more designs! December 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A good case This case is colorful and protective but not so bulky as other OtterBox cases December 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by loved it i had a problem with this website before. but this time my cover came in good time, and i love it! thank you! December 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Phone Glad I made this purchase. Price is worth the protection that you get. December 1, 2015

Answers

A: 
Each OtterBox case is engineered to fit the specific device it will protect. Due to differences in overall size, feature, and function, the Symmetry Series case for iPhone 5/5s is not compatible with the iPhone 5c.

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.

NOT AS BULKY AND IS ALL ONE PIECE WITH NO SCREEN COVER. ALL PORTS ARE EXPOSED. EASIER TO HANDLE BUT NOT AS MUCH PROTECTION FOR SURE.

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.

A: 
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.
