    Elegant and practical

    • Written by Elizabeth I from St Petersburg

    Such a great case! 1. Super protective (vital for me—cats/tile floors/clumsy & distracted). 2. Works great with my Morphie wireless charger. 3. Has an elegant and minimalist design that complements my phone.

    Will not admit the case is substandard

    • Written by Jerry H from East York

    I purchased the Statement case for a previous Iphone case and it was fantastic.
    However I do not know if they changed the specs or the company manufacturing it, but the buttons for this case are incredibly stiff and even "plasticy" sharp and hard which hurt my fingers. I work in landscaping!
    Taking a screen shot meaning you need to touch both the home button and power button simultaneously was futile at best. A huge dissapponitment. In comparison to my previous and the later X series phones, Otter lost my trust when they did acknowledge how substandard and unsophisticated this case is compared to others models. That is ok. It made me look to other manufacturers!

    Solid Case

    • Written by Daniel M from Calgary

    I got an Otterbox Statement for my iPhone, straying from my usual commuter. I wanted something a little more sleek, but just as sturdy. This case has hit the concrete, hit stairs, and tumbled off of couches many times, and only had bruises to show for it. No major cracks in the case, but the leather will get roughed up over time. I normally go for something higher defence, but this served my needs very nicely.

    Would recommend. Would always recommend otterbox, but if you aren't scaling mountains, Statement will cut it for you. It also kept it from getting squished about during long overseas flights. Quite happy and will be getting another. As per any type of protection, you should be planning to change it out every 2-3 years depending on use.

    BEST case

    • Written by XIAOJIE.J L from 北京市

    I am one of the very first people who purchased this case - have been using the wine color one for almost two years. it is amazingly durable and comfort to hold in your hands. I am really satisfied with the quality of the case even though the bottom color part has sort of 'pealed off'/faded. The other downside of the case is the plastic part which can be scratched easily like others' comments. BUT - BEST CASE EVER (I have used at least 20 cases from incase, otterbox, tech 21, applecase, Belkin, lander torrey and other fancy brands)!

    Survived a 40 foot drop

    • Written by Anthony R from Oakland

    Cosmetically, as other reviews have said, yes the case does get scratched very easily but if you can get past that you will be getting what is, imo, the best looking otterbox case you can get. I love the clear back the the leather accent on the bottom is very nice to feel.

    On top of that, if you read the title, I was hiking on Mount Diablo through rock city and my 8 plus dropped out of my pocket off the biggest rock in the area, I watched it skid down the side before falling through trees onto the ground below. I rushed down to find it and when I found it there were some minor scuffs on the edge but the phone was completely fine, absolutely no marks. That's a good enough reason to write a good review for this case!

    Poor quality

    • Written by Katerina C from London

    I’ve had the cream version of this case for about 6months. It is it terribly difficult to get my phone in or out of it and has resulted in some scratches to the corners of the phone from the force needed. The leather has worn and discoloured, the rubber doesn’t clean properly and the clear plastic part at the back scratches easily. For the price, this case is not of good quality and will not last. Mine looks ready for the bin!

    Sleek look & great grip

    • Written by sara T from Norwood

    I really like this Otterbox Symmetry Case for Apple. I’ve only used Otterbox Defenders cases for my previous iPhones. I didn’t want the extra bulk or weight though since the 8 Plus is already big and “heavy”. I didn’t think twice about purchasing a different Otterbox case because the quality has been awesome. They also have a lifetime warranty.

    I’m surprised at the number of complaints about scratches. It clearly states it is scratch RESISTANT not scratch Proof. I’ve had this case on my phone for almost 2 months in a variety of situations and so far I don’t have any scratches on the clear back. I do clean my phone and case a couple of times a day so maybe that helps.

    I love the sleek slim look that also incorporates a rubber type band along the edges for a great grip. It’s a great case just be realistic there is not scratch proof plastic ����‍♀️

    Looks Great Until the Return Date Lapses

    • Written by Oliver K from Las Vegas

    I was happy to find an Otterbox brand case in Apple's store because I trust their product's durability. Sadly, this product does not live up to the Otterbox brand. The leather has worn off and the back is covered in scratches. I would not recommend this product at all. It looked great the first week or so, but soon after, the case started to get all scratched up. Very disappointed in both Apple and Otterbox on this one.

    My First Disappontment From Otterbox

    • Written by William P from Knoxville

    I have purchased many Otterbox products in the past, and have been very impressed by their durability. I wanted a case that provided a moderate amount of drop protection and looked great, maybe even showed off the phone a little. Well this thing looks horrible two weeks in. I have no idea how it has collected so many scratches in such a short time. I’m really mad at myself for not returning this thing inside 14 days. Grip is good on the sides, horrible on the rapidly scratching back. Do yourself a favor and spend $40 elsewhere.

    The Otterbox Statement case looks amazing! The leather bottom and the clear back feels great. It is however not scratch proof as advertised. If scratches do not bother you, go for it! I have had this case for 3 days and it is crazy how scratched it is.

    What Jeans Are You People Wearing?

    • Written by Airiana A from Colorado Springs

    I first bought this case for my iPhone 6 back in 2015 or so and it protected the phone for 2 years with no problems. I dropped my phone on all surfaces such as sidewalks, streets, tile, countertops ect. I have also dropped it while riding my bike in the city and watched it skid across the street and the screen did not crack or shatter once. I did not have a tempered glass screen protector installed on my phone so there were some minor scratches visible on the screen but nothing noticlable without looking closely.

    I appreciate the design of the case because it is minimal with max protection. This case is more slim compared to when the otter box first came out for the older iPhones and it was a brick of silicone. The clear plastic part of the case is nice for people who like to customize for example I put Polaroid photos or stickers in between and change it up from time to time.

    Yes the case will most likely scratch if you drop your phone on hard surfaces.
    Yes it will add a centimeter of bulk around your phone.
    This is the purpose of the case it’s to protect your phone and if scratches bother your from dropping it maybe buy a case that’s all one solid color??
    Or do you best not to drop your phone at all?

    I purchased this case for my iPhone 8 Plus with a tempered glass screen protector and will continue to purchase this case for all my apple products.

    For people who find that the case get scratches from your jean pockets I suggest you wash your jeans with fabric softener inside out and hang dry. Maybe that’ll soften your pockets that are sewn in with cloth and aren’t even a jean material. Your reviews don’t make sense.

    Only does half the job.

    • Written by Rod C from Newport

    The case is very tight fitting and difficult to remove or insert the phone without what feels undue force. The case is supposedly for the 8 but the edge of the case is almost flush with the screen and it looks almost like the phone is too big for the case. Back of the phone is probably protected, screen has little to no protection.

    It's Worth the ��

    • Written by Michael D from INDIANAPOLIS

    I Love This case. it Is a high quality case and for $40 you expert it to too. Otter box is emblazoned on the side rubber part. I received this the same day as my 7plus Black. I also have the spigen slim armor case with stand $30 but prefer the Otter Box over it with its clear back and leather bottom grip.

    *Scratch Resistant*

    • Written by Tommy C from Levittown

    So this case offers awesome drop protection. Its sleek and aesthetically pleasing. Scratch resistant it is not. I've been using it for about a month and a half and it's full of fine scratches. I like the case and will always trust otterbox, but maybe they should change the description.
