These Apple-focused Otterbox cases are so good, they can survive up to 100 drops — save over 50%

Your iPhone needs protection, and there's no better way to get it than by slipping it into an OtterBox case. Never heard of them? Well, the OtterBox is considered the Hummer of phone protection. They can withstand just about anything, including drops from considerable heights. The one (understandable) caveat is that they can be expensive compared to regular cases. But right now, Amazon has some amazing deals on OtterBox cases, turning this premium protection plan into an affordable one. Save big on these klutz-proof protectors!

The Defender lives up to its name, as it's one of Otterbox's most rugged cases, rated for five times as many drops as the standards require.

Why is this a good deal?

At over 50% off, this is one heck of a deal. While the price has dropped a little lower in the past, it's hard to argue with a discount this steep — especially when your phone costs so much more. Keep it working well for years to come and preserve that sweet trade-in value for when you want to upgrade. Ask yourself: would you rather save a few bucks now or know for sure that your phone is protected?

Why do I need this?

As Elvis Costello sang, "Accidents will happen." He didn't mean iPhone falls, but the adage applies, as those precious devices get dropped, cracked and sometimes completely broken. So you want to do everything you can to protect your phone from unexpected oopsies — the problem is, too many cases are both poorly built and cost a small fortune. That's where OtterBoxes stand apart.

The cases are put through what's known as the Military Standards test. This evaluates how durable a case is and has pretty strict guidelines on what a device has to endure. They're dropped 26 times across different faces, but this OtterBox case can stand up to five times as many drops.

What reviewers say

This fan raved, "I’ve always used OtterBox on my iPhones. Great protection. I was worried about the back of this one being all plastic and not having front protection for the screen. I’ve dropped it and it went flying into the dashboard when my husband slammed on the brakes. Not even a scratch."

"Good protection" reported this shopper, though they added, "This product was difficult to get on the phone but once in place, it has been fine and has kept the phone clean and protected, as I have dropped it several times, including on hard tile floor. I’m really happy being able to see the color of my phone and not just the case itself."

"This is the perfect case for my phone," said this son of the soil. "Living on a farm, your phone is the main connection between everyone, especially if you are working in different fields constantly exposed to dirt, grease, water, and being dropped off a piece of equipment from accidentally falling out of your pocket. With this case I don’t have to worry about my phone being damaged."
