OtterBox Impact Series Up Close
The inner corners of the OtterBox for iPhone 3G / 3GS Impact Series are designed to dissipate impact AWAY from your device, so for light drops it will give you some added protection. Turning the case inside out you can take a better look at the inner corners that help dissipate the energy from an impact away from the device as the ribbing adds extra bump and shock protection. This feature is hidden from the outside, but is hands down one of the most important features of this case.
To put the OtterBox for iPhone 3G/3GS Impact Series sleeve on the phone you just need to slip the phone into the top and then pull up the bottom lip over the base of the phone. Once the sleeve is pulled over the bottom of the phone the installation is complete and it takes just a couple seconds. I have been using this case for a week now and have found that with the case on I have lost none of the functionality of the phone. The 'fit' of the case was good and the iPhone 3GS was secure and unable to easily come out.
The OtterBox for iPhone 3G/3GS Impact Series has an ergonomic design, which helps grip the phone when it is in use. As you can see by the image above the camera remains uncovered, so the image quality remains the same even with the sleeve installed. And as mentioned above with the case on we had no issues with using any of the outer buttons or ports.It is important to note that this case does not work with the first generation iPhone or the iPod touch.
Final Thoughts and Conclusions:
The Impact Series by Otterbox is a quality product that is well worth the $14.89 plus shipping price tag. With the rubberized outer texture and light weight this protective sleeve has taken away none of the functionality of the iPhone itself. But it has added a layer of protection that one needs with a phone that at the low end can cost $499 for the 8GB model and at the high end for the $699 32GB model. That is before promotions and discounts, if any apply. Plus with the added clear protective film to help with all overall protection you really can't go wrong.
Legit Bottom Line: With such a relatively low cost for such a big piece of mind, one can not go wrong with the Otterbox Impact Series for the iPhone 3G/3GS.
