Simplicity meets Style with Otterbox Symmetry phone case

Ahhh symmetry. The name alone symbolizes perfect equality and harmony. Type A’s, you know what I’m talking about. The beautiful balance between left and right, yin and yang, salt and pepper, ketchup, and mustard. Sorry, I’ll stop. 

I could keep going, but I don’t want to bore all of you non-type A’s to death. Symmetrical wonderfulness, encapsulated in a teeny tiny phone case. Um, what?! No, you didn’t misread that. We really are reviewing a phone case, specifically the Otterbox Symmetry Case.

Let’s review why we love Otterbox Symmetry

The Otterbox Symmetry case is one solid piece of expertly tested and designed polycarbonate, that will protect your precious phone from well, life! Any time you bump, ding, or drop your phone, the Symmetry case is there to protect it. 

Think hardy outdoor work gloves meet fancy leather driving gloves. Protection your phone needs, but with a little bit of style and glamour because your uniqueness needs to be known. 

Maybe gloves aren’t the right analogy. Think of the Otterbox Symmetry case like a pair of yoga pants. Soft and flexible, as comfortable as pajamas, but with the ability to go anywhere, workout, or not! 

Although it’s a super functional case, it’s not mundane. Again, like the yoga pants, you can wear them to work out (very few actually make it to the gym).

But in reality, many yoga pants have been dressed up and worn out at business meetings, gatherings with friends, and even to the nightclub! You’d be proud to take this phone case with you to the gym, or grocery store, or wherever your busy life leads you. 

Best of all, you know that your phone will stay protected through anything, guaranteed by Otterbox’s Lifetime warranty guarantee.  

Down to Business

With an average of 4.7 out of 5 stars on Amazon reviews, it’s clear that the Symmetry case can hold its own. But what’s really in a rating, anyway? We dug a bit deeper into the comments to find out why users like this case so much. 

Most users liked that it was only one piece, allowing for easy installation. No awkward multi-piece case, just one solid configuration even a five-year-old could install. Nice! But since the case is one-piece, it’s limited as far as color schematics. 

Don’t let this deter you. The phone has a vast array of colors and designs from which to choose. From solids to sparkles, to Disney! So Star Wars fans, superhero fans, and even evil cartoon villains rejoice! 

The Otterbox Symmetry case has so many options for either Apple or Android phones; it’s almost overwhelming. Everything to display your unique style in a phone case! 

Some indicated they liked how the case had slightly raised edges to protect the screen, with or without an added screen protector. There is no screen protector included with the case, however. A screen protector is a wise addition to

The volume and control buttons fit expertly into the side edges, allowing for easy control through all functions. Port covers are open, so easy plugging into chargers and headphones is a plus. 

This phone case is not 5 of 5 stars, though. The other .3 of 5 of people had some valid views on the negative side as well. Some indicated the price point is a bit high, considering it looks like just an average phone case. Rest assured, this case is anything but cheap. 

Otterbox’s stellar lifetime warranty guarantee backs it. The warranty alone supports some serious consideration. Heck, not even your microwave has a warranty for that long. Or your husband, for that matter. 

Even though it has cute designs, some folks with lighter colors indicated that other darker colors from jeans or other things would rub off and make the case look dirty. A simple wipe down now and again would take care of that. 

A few mentioned that since the ports along the bottom are open and unprotected, dust and debris can easily get in there. Not much you can do about that, though, unfortunately. 

Protection and Style All in One

The case is super slim and will fit snugly into the pocket of your tightest skinny jeans, so you don’t have to worry about your phone slipping out. It’s sleek, but it has some grip. 

Say you accidentally bury your phone in the bottom of your fancy purse because you’re wearing your yoga pants without pockets (we love how new yoga pants now have thigh pockets, woohoo!). 

The Otterbox Symmetry case has a grippy enough exterior so it can be easily found underneath whatever else you shoved in there because you might need it “just in case.” Meaning you can grab your phone fast and answer your BFF about where to get takeout dinner tonight. 

Otterbox Symmetry Review 

Overall, we give high marks in the Otterbox Symmetry Review. What it lacks in extra frills it makes up for in designs.

Its simplicity in features allows you to go all-out in its design and color schemes, so you are free to show off your unique style. Simple, elegant, yet hardy, and best of all, guaranteed warranty, which means you can take comfort in knowing you’re getting a great deal.
