Otterbox Commuter Series for Samsung Galaxy SII review


The only way to make sure that your precious gadgets are protected is to make sure that the cases they're in are made of quality products. Otterbox is among the very few brands that specializes in high quality cases for your gadgets.


What's Inside 

It comes with a full package of a screen protector and the case itself.

 The case is separated into two levels of protection:
  • Soft silicone mid-layer.
  • Tough, smooth outter shell

The screen protector comes with a small microfiber cloth to make sure that your screen is dust free before putting on the screen protector.

With the Phone

The Otterbox Commuter Series for the Galaxy SII is designed in such a way to try and maintain the slim factor that makes the phone special while still giving it good protection.

The back of the case still allows you to have a quick snap by giving the 8MP camera lens a hole that is fitted perfectly. Not only that, the case gives it an extra protection against scratches by elevating the lens when you put the phone on a flat surface.

Special Port Plugs Design

Otterbox really did a superb job with designing the silicone case with port plugs for the Samsung Galaxy SII since the phone doesn't come with any port plugs. These port plugs makes sure that the ports on your phone doesn't get dust buildup over time.

Final Words

The Otterbox Commuter Series for the Samsung Galaxy SII is definitely a well designed case that gives both protection and style. The port plugs gives the phone what it originally lacks and is a big bonus for the case. A well designed camera hole at the back also solves another issue with the phone easily getting scratches on the lens.

At a price of P2,150.00, it is quite high compared to other cases. But with the protection and style factor it gives, it is definitely worth it.

Surprised you found anything decent like this in the philippines, and not the typical junk gel cases and capdase that they try to sell you everywhere in the philippines. Consider yourself lucky!

Otterbox is very well known mostly for cases for Apple products. It's a good thing that they're expanding their market to Android devices.
