Picture the scene: you’ve just gone to pick up your brand new iPhone 5 from your local Apple store, you’re walking along the street and out of nowhere checking out all of the sweet new features of iOS 6 and, thanks to Apple’s new Maps application, instead of walking home, you’re directed straight into a terrorist hideout. Before you know it, you’ve been whisked off to a hellish prison, somewhere in Eastern Asia, to ensure you don’t pass on any of the top secret information you’ve overheard.
After fleeing the prison in a similar fashion to Bruce Wayne in TDKR, you’re left with the arduous task of finding your way back to blighty with nothing more than a brand spanking new iPhone (and Siri, of course) as company.
Regardless of the fact that Maps don’t work anywhere, let alone deepest darkest Asia, if you’re going to make it home, you’ll need a decent, hard wearing, rugged, preferably triple-layered, case.
If you do find yourself in this unlikely scenario, then the best option for you to keep your new phone in tip-top condition is the Otterbox Defender.
Featuring three separate cases, including a solid plastic inner with a built-in screen-protector, a silicone outer layer and a chunky belt clip, this badboy will keep your iPhone 5 in pristine condition, no matter how many deserts you need to cross, jungles you need to venture through or urban landscapes you need to scale, thanks to Apple Maps’ incompetence.
+ Will keep your phone protected from virtually anything.
+ Feels premium.
+ Great build quality.
- Adds considerable bulk to the phone.
- Can be quite fiddly to put on and remove.
