How to Buy an Affordable Otterbox Phone Case

The first Otterbox phone case was a waterproof case designed for water sports enthusiasts, and today a wide range of Otterbox phone cases are available. These cases are designed to offer a great deal of protection to smart phones, and a number of different series are available which offer different features and different levels of protection. A wide variety of Otterbox phone cases, as well as other phone accessories, can be found on eBay.

Otterbox Phone Case Series

There are different series of Otterbox phone cases available, offering different designs and benefits. Each series is available to fit a range of different smart phones, including Apple, Samsung and HTC.


The Defender case is among the more affordable Otterbox cases. This case protects the phone from shocks, bumps and drops using 3 layers; the built in screen protector, a polycarbonate inner layer and a silicone outer layer. Port covers are also included, which protect against dirt and dust.


The Otterbox Commuter is a lighter and less expensive version of the Defender. It offers similar features, with two layers of protection, a silicone inner layer and a polycarbonate outer layer. Its thin profile makes it easier to slide in and out of pockets.


The Reflex features a slimmer, two piece design which offers a good deal of protection. The case is designed to flex and rebound to its original form upon impact, while air pockets help to absorb blows. The thinner profile of this case makes it easier to dock the phone while it is in the case.


The Prefix is a light, affordable case, with a combination polycarbonate and silicone structure which helps to absorb drops and bumps.


Otterbox Impact cases are the simplest and most affordable available. Encasing the phone, the case offers protection against bumps and drops, and includes a screen protector.


The Otterbox Pursuit is unlike more traditional phone cases. The Pursuit is a watertight drybox which can store a phone in an Otterbox case, or other items such as a wallet and keys. The case provides air cushioning, and features a secure closing latch.


The Armor case offers heavy duty protection, and is available for the iPhone 4, iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3. A watertight design and port seals enable it to protect phones from water as well as crushing, shocks and drops. The Armor also features a built in screen protector. It also adds a great deal of bulk to the phone, and is among the more expensive Otterbox cases.
