If there is such a thing.

My old phone went for a swim. Needles to say, I don't think iPhone will be trying out for the summer Olympics anytime soon.

What is the best "indestructible" case I can get? I know Ottter Box but is there any other comparable products?

Otterbox....they are expensive but well worth the money according to my BIL who swears by his for his construction job.

Otter box. I've had my iPhone in one since the day I bought it 2 years ago. Still looks brand new when I take it out of the case. I've dropped it on concrete and it bounces. Well worth the money.

 Otterbox.  I have dropped mine on concrete I don't know how many times, my horse bucked it out of my pocket once and stepped on it.  That incident cracked the case, but the phone is perfect.  One of our employees ran over his with a tractor and it broke the case but protected the phone.

How do they hold up to being dropped... repetitively?

I am bad cell phone owner. My last phone was in the Otter Box Defender. The case lasted me about 8 months. Maybe I just had a faulty one but the rubber never really fit right and the casing eventually cracked. The guy at ATT put it on for me and said the rubber would shrink back but it never did.

Another vote for OtterBox, they are expensive (come in different levels) I got the most expensive most durable one. It makes your phone a bit bulkier but I don't mind its been dropped on concrete countless times, gotten wet when I rode outside when it was raining. My phones would never last the 2 years before you could get a new one and my iphone with this case is almost 2 years old and looks new and works great!

Otterbox Defender


I pulled our Trailer fender off because we blew a tire and it bent it.  I forgot I had sat my phone down and laid the fender down on top of the phone.  I was beating the fender with a hammer to get it back into shape.  The case suffered a minor chunk taken out of the screen but the iPhone was A-OK! No cracking, chipping or anything!

Otterbox. We JUST updated from our Iphone 3s to the Iphone 5s. NEVER had to replace our 3s living in Otterboxes. Mine even got driven over once. Phone survived.

We however are ordering the Griffin Survivor cases for the iphone 5s as they seem to be more durable than the Otterboxes for the 5's that I have seen.

They are not 'cute' or 'blingy' but they are worth their weight in gold if you do not have insurance.

Lifeproof. Good protection. I drop mine numerous times and even in water. Slim case that slides easily into my pockets. Only thing I can say bad about it is since it is fully waterproof, it covers the camera lens so sometimes pics aren't the best.

I did not like my otter box defender case. Sure it protected my phone from drops but the case itself didn't last. After two months of use, the silicone outer layer just fell apart in many different areas. It's bulky. Just wasn't impressed.

Bodyglove; it has withstood so many drops and tosses and I like the rubbery texture for some grip.

 i agree with the otterboxes! If you buy them off amazon, they're a lot cheaper.

Lifeproof is waterproof otterboxes are not. Otterboxes are a little heavier and come with that cool belt clip. Lifeproof goes in your pocket better

You have to have the apple power cord for life proof. Otterbox defenders can fit other brand power cords

I had an otterbox on my iphone 3gs and have a lifeproof for my 4s. I've liked both cases for different reasons. I do think the otterbox was tougher though. And if something happens to your phone, I thought they said they would replace or something like that. Could be wrong about that, though.

you would have to have the case because all you have to do is take a picture of the damage and the seal that is stamped on the case.. pretty neat!
