CES 2014: Otterbox announces new ‘Symmetry’ cases for iPhone 5s and 5c


At CES, Otterbox has unveiled its new range of iPhone cases called the ‘Symmetry’ series. According to Otterbox, these cases are a “fusion of protection and style”.

The protective cases are thin, combining two materials into a single piece. Otterbox calls the series one of the slimmest, most protective cases in its class. They have a raised edge on the front to protect the touchscreen glass and use synthetic rubber in a honeycomb coring on the back to absorb shock to defend against drop damage.

    I can’t believe people really buy into this stuff. Insane how much money they make selling people “quality” cases. It’s a god damn plastic shell around your phone and nothing more.
