Ok, so I've never been a huge fan of OtterBox's products in the past as they usually seem to double the size of the phone to begin with. That was until today I had my first official testing of what OtterBox is designed to do. The day started like any other. Got out of bed, had my shower, ate my breakfast and on to tooth brushing. That was when everything changed Starring deep into the mirror, verifying that I didn't miss another chuck of bacon stuck to my tooth, my phone starts ringing. I reach and pull it from my pocket, pulling to eye level when the dreaded event transpired Airborne. The phone slipped from my sudsy hand. As I watch the camera become visible just to disappear time after time, the laws of physics took ownership of my phone. Toppling and tumbling, my phone streamlined to the tile floor, landing square on the open face of the OtterBox encased S8. As I watched my future paychecks bounce nearly a foot off the ground, the fatal near future reality of lost contacts, pictures, songs, calls and messages flooded my consciousness. Watching my phone jostle to a rest face down on the tile floor, I reached for my phone expecting the worst. Turning the phone over to look at the screen, I was frozen solid by what I saw Nothing absolutely nothing exactly what was expected from a non-oped phone. Starring into the void of the blackened screen, looking for the signs of the shattered LCD, the phone lights up as the missed caller tried again. Still dazed and confused, I answered with uncertainty in my voice. The rambling of an automated recording regarding my prescription bellowed from the ear piece. Quickly I end the call and proceed to test all possibly issues caused from the near 5 foot drop once again, nothing absolutely nothing! The phone is mint, the case immune, the only evidence is a cracked screen protector! I entered the world of OtterBox as a biased skeptic. I am leaving as a tried and true unwavering devotee. Well played OtterBox, well played!
