The Otterbox iPhone 5/5s Prefix Series is one of the basic models in Otterbox cases and despite it being the “basic” variant, it stands as one of the strongest cases ever. It’s a neat, flexible and highly durable case for the iPhone 5/5s which is aimed at the casual user.

2. The Commuter Series

For some of the users though, a bulkier case is just okay as long as it offers a better level of protection. The Prefix Series is good enough but the Commuter series for iPhone 5/5s is a stronger variant. It’s slightly bulky and thick but along with it comes the added protection from shocks, rough scratches and more. There are two-layers of protection along with the default self-adhesive screen protector.

3. The Defender Series

Otterbox is almost always known for its Defender series cases. Almost everyone who buys Otterbox opts for these and in fact, it’s so popular that people have come to associate Otterbox with the Defender series. The Defender series of iPhone 5/5s cases is undeniably one of the best heavy-duty cases you can ever get for your smartphone. It’s bulky, comes with a huge bevel for the bumper, has an enormously strong framework, and prevents any damage due to drops, accidental shocks etc. We don’t need to review it actually: it’s as popular as the iPhone 5/5s itself.
