rnch saidAfter finally purchasing a sleek, thin, white I-5 phone; I was also advised to get an otterbox deffender case.
IDK....it seems kinda-sorta thick & klunky to me; somewhat of an overkill.
Is this monsta case REALLY necessary
The answer depends on you. I get by with a minimalist case on my 5, with a separate stick-on screen protector. I've dropped my phone on the floor just once in the last 7 months, no damage
But my husband gets an OtterBox Defender on his iPhone because he's really tough on his phones. He's had 2 phones with them now and his phones both survived his rough treatment.
I remember when I got my 4S, and that same night I showed it to a friend who also had one. I asked him what case he recommended. He took his 4S with OtterBox Defender and threw it on the stone tile floor at my feet! I mean THREW it, not dropped.
Then he picked it up and it was fine. I was shocked he'd try such a stunt, but it impressed me with the protection the OtterBox offers. So what do you think your own phone might face?
