Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Commuter seriesI really like this Otterbox! It fits my iphone XR perfectly. I feel confident when holding my phone that it will not slip out of my hand as there is slight texture on the case. Color is nice medium dark blue. Would have preferred a little lighter color to more eassily find in a dark purse, however this color is good for anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outright PleasedI usually use the Defender, although I needed something a little less bulky and I was afraid to try another product. I was surprised that the Commuter offered the same protection. The only problem I have with this case, is that I waited too long to try it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank god for otter boxBought this case a month or less- give or take. I’m very bad with dropping my phone and cracking it, things of that nature and I do some international travel so you can imagine how rough my phone looked before putting this case on. Had my screen repaired right before and I’ve dropped it normal and it hasn’t cracked since. I would recommend with a screen protector if you have the time and energy to put up with that but overall this alone is the most wonderful case I’ve ever had. Worth every penny

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not waterproofBought this case several weeks ago, but had to send my new iPhone back to Apple to be replaced because it was malfunctioning. Got it back and installed the case but soon realized that it is not waterproof, which is the only reason I am purchasing the case. And now I’ve been told that I can’t return it and buy one from Lifeproof, because it’s been over 30 days! Not happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Customer service and warrantyI purchased the case for my wife and the plastic shell had been damaged in shipping. I submitted a claim on line and received a replacement case. This is not the first time Otterbox has replaced parts on my phone cases I have purchase from them and besides the cases being top quality, this is way I’ll keep coming back. You get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GreatReally like the case. It does make my phone feel much bigger, it I went from an iPhone 7+ and so it’s not bothering me as I’m already use to a bigger phone. I did notice that having it in my jean pocket, some of the blue from the denim has come off onto the softer part of the case, but I think that’s more to do with the fact that they were new jeans. Really like the case and it’s been working great as I’ve dropped my phone several times and no scratches or cracks occurred :

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very durable and lightI’m really happy with my new otter box case. The color was the main reason I picked it but it’s very durable and lighter than my old one. I also like the new design without the built in screen protector. It’s so much easier to clean. I can easily find my phone in my purse with the bright color scheme. I do love it and know it will keep my phone from getting damaged for a very long time. Can’t beat the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protects phone but get a dark colorI’ve used this case for less than two weeks and it protects my phone just fine but the ballet pink color is already stained from putting it in my jeans pocket. I’ve maybe worn jeans 3 times and each time my case gets more stained. I was super excited about the color but now I wish I would’ve just gotten black since my pink case already looks filthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Commuter shines through, again!When I upgraded to the XR, the Commuter case was not available in store. Therefore, I purchased a different case, and after a day was on the OtterBox website ordering another commuter case. This is the third commuter style case I have had for my various iPhones, and I will not go without the commuter in the future. It is durable, protects well, slides in and out of pockets easily, and stands up to my three toddlers! I also have to brag about the OtterBox warranty as I did file a claim on a previous commuter with them and it was easily and quickly resolved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from if it's not broken...I have been using Otterbox products for years. I started with a defender for my first iphones and went to a commuter with screen protector for my iphone 6 plus and loved it even more. So when I upgraded to an XR, I immediately ordered another commuter. I was so disappointed to find that they changed the design to something that was as thick and clumsy as a defender, if not more so with it's squared edges. I am returning it and getting something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from progress reversedI have had several iphone over the years. I always use the OtterBox commuter case. In fact this is my fourth commuter case. I was super happy with the changes made for my iphone 6. The edges were rounded and very streamline. The case fit better into my life. The commuter case for my iphone XR is very square. The front edges stick out at an odd angle to the phone. the case significantly increased the space required for pockets. In addition it does not slid easily into pockets. I am afraid if I add a pop socket, it won't even fit. I am disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from She loves it but bewareIf you are used to how they fit the older iPhones it is different to accommodate the the edge to edge screen. It bigger and not as slim line. But it’s necessary if you want this type of protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Protection AvailableThis is the fourth Otterbox Commuter I’ve purchased. I never considered another brand of case for my new iPhone XR. I love your products, which have never let me down. But FedEx Smartpost? Delivery took eleven days! Surely there are faster options available for loyal customers who select “free” shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Great!......Needs Improvement!I received the Otterbox Commuter Case for the iPhone XR about 2 weeks ago. My initial impressions were “wow, this case is big”. The case looks and fits the iPhone XR wonderfully, however, the areas of the case on the screen side, near the rocker buttons are too pliable/flexible. The slightest thumb pressure in this area will cause the case to pull away from the phone, creating a gap for debris infiltration. This may be by design or quite possibly an area that needs to be addressed by additional stiffening. Taking into consideration I carry this in my pocket daily and have already had to clean the lint out from between the case and phone, I may return it for the Symmetry or Pursuit.
