Protecting your precious iPhone is not easy, particularly when you include components like water, mud or dirt in to the blend guarding your valuable iPhone isn’t a simple job. To overcome this, many companies have created their very own rugged, weather-proof protective iPhone cases for the past several years. One company is Otter Box. Get tossed into a pool, flop into the snow and stomp through puddles without worry about your phone getting wet!
I recently had the chance to review The Preserver by Otter Box and love it. I can’t tell you how many cases Amanda and I have gone through, but this case is one of the best!
The case features the ability to be submerged in water up to 2m (6.6 feet) deep for up to 30 minutes without the water resistance being compromised. That same water-tightness also insures dust and debris protection, and the entire design of the case — like all OtterBox products ,is centered around making sure that your device survives drops and bumps. Preserver Series waterproof case offers Military-rated drop protection. Get tossed into a pool, flop into the snow and stomp through puddles without worry about your phone getting wet!
To assemble the case, you need to line up the bottoms of each piece and push down on the corners, working your way from the bottom up the sides until you reach the top. As you continue up the case, you’ll hear a noise letting you know you’ve successfully snapped into the grooves that hold the case together.
The front portion of the case features all of the various buttons and sealed ports, and includes a clear screen protector as well. The back of the case has a soft, padded interior that nestles against the back of your iPhone to keep it safe from scratches. These two pieces snap together to create a watertight seal.
• Two-piece case with snap assembly for easy installation
• Internal foam cushions device and holds it in place inside the case
• Includes an adjustable lanyard for convenient carrying and tethering
• Waterproof: fully submersible up to 6.6 ft. (2 m) for 30 minutes (IP-X8)
• Drop proof: military-rated drop protection (MIL STD 810G-516.6)
• Dust proof: blocks entry of dust and debris particles (IP-6X)
The case comes with a lanyard so you can dangle it from your wrist, and it’s available in four different color combinations: pistachio (bright green) and white, carbon (dark gray) and black, glacier (white) and gray, and primrose (pink) and white.
The Preserver is a good waterproof case. It will do waterproof flawlessly and it will keep your phone safe from drops. It’s easy to snap together and it’s very ergonomic despite having some bulk to it. The ports on the bottom are easy to get to and the built-in screen protector is almost flawless. On the flip side, the selector switch on the side and the home button are not as easy to operate as they should be. But we love this case and that really does not bother us to much.
