So I am, um, a little hard on my phones.


This wasn’t the first time I have done this.

I have gone through a total of 5 phones in the last 4 years. Not kidding. They have been dropped, soaked in water or coffee, even DEEP FRIED one once. Yep. I was texting my sister while making dinner one night and my phone slipped out of my hand and plopped straight into hot oil. So while not much could save a deep-fried phone, I do have a lifesaver for all of the other stuff. And hey, maybe “deep-fried phone” is a delicacy somewhere…

I am happy to have the Otterbox Armor on my phone. I have already dropped my phone several times. In water even. And my lovely iPhone is as pristine as the day I got it.


The iPhone 4/4S Armor Series case offers four layers of protection so you can enjoy life’s adventures with confidence knowing your iPhone 4/4S is shielded from the elements. Waterproof, drop proof, dust proof and crush proof the Armor Series is the toughest case ever built. Get protection that truly inspires confidence.

The Otterbox Armor claims to be the “toughest case ever built”. I thought “we will see about that..” Sure, it can handle the rigors of an active outdoor expeditionist or construction-working/boating/cyclist/superhero, but can it survive preschoolers? I put it to the test…

Check out how I torture my Otterbox in the video below…

Happy to say that YES. It has survived. It survived dead drops on concrete, a throw across the parking lot, even a dip into the kiddie pool. With flying colors :)

  • WATERPROOF – Up to 30 min down 6.6ft
  • CRUSHPROOF – Can withstand 2 tons of pressure
  • DROPPROOF – Up to 10 feet on concrete
  • DUSTPROOF – 0% dust or debris inside

The Otterbox Armor retails for $99, but you have the opportunity to WIN one!

    Love your video, your kids looked like they enjoyed helping you!

    I love my Otterbox Defender series case. The day after I got my new iPhone 2 years ago I dropped it in the parking lot- not even a big drop, and the back of it shattered. Luckily it still worked. The Otterbox was actually due to arrive the next day, go figure. 2 years later and my phone still works, where the back is damaged chips of glass are now missing. My kids have dropped my phone a bazillion times and I’ve not had one issue. When I get a new phone though, I think I’ll upgrade to the Armor. I like that it’s waterproof. You are so brave to run your phone over with your car- I would have been way too nervous to, even with an Otterbox!

      I LOVE that it is waterproof – one of my phone mishaps happened when a bottle of water leaked in my purse while my poor phone sat in it for hours. And yay for fun underwater pics! I have to admit I was totally nervous when I first got the case to review, but then my husband grabbed my phone and threw it across a parking lot. Other than a scuff the case and phone were perfect 😀 So I knew it would survive lol

    I would love the protection of this case. I have dropped my phone in toilet, dropped one in washer. A water proof case would help on saving my phone.
