If you're always on the move and continue using your iPhone, consider getting an OtterBox case. OtterBox does not joke around when it comes to protecting your iPhone X or iPhone X Max.



You can choose from a complete collection of iPhone X cases from their Defender, Commuter, or Symmetry series. They range from solid color cases, cases with pop defenders to collaborations with Disney.

What makes OtterBox unique is that all their cases are constructed in two parts: a polycarbonate shell and a rubber slipcover. You can rest assured, even if you drop your smartphone several times, your iPhone is protected every time.


Prices for OtterBox cases vary. On their official website, their cases start at $39.95.

Otterbox is carried at many big-box retailers like Best Buy, Staples, and even the official Apple store. Having Otterbox available at these big-box retailers means you can most likely get an Otterbox sale from an authorized retailer.

Each case has a protective outer rubber shell that keeps your iPhone X or X Max from breaking when dropped. Moreover, the case is slim-fitting and can slide into your pockets with ease.


A Carved case retails for $70. It may seem like a steep price for a case, but each case is handcrafted and unique. Additionally, Carved offers a one-year manufacturer warranty on their products.

For a handcrafted phone case, the one-year warranty is excellent to ensure your case is in tip-top condition to protect your phone with a minimalist appearance for the outdoors and office meetings.
