The otterbox phone case is a popular choice for people who are looking for a durable, protective way to keep their phone safe and sound. But what does this mean when it comes to water?
Otterbox phone cases come in many designs suitable for a wide range of different phones but they are all designed to protect phones from being dropped and from mild water damage.
However be aware that they do not provide full protection against water.
Otterbox phone cases are not fully waterproof, rather they are water-resistant for up to 30 minutes.
Otterbox says that their cases will protect your phone from water damage for up to 30 minutes, even if it is submerged two meters underwater.
This is thanks to its polycarbonate rubber flaps which seal the charging port and headphone jack on your phone.
With an Otterbox case you can probably get away with taking a quick underwater picture providing you ensure that the flaps are fully pressed in, however, don’t be tempted to take it scuba diving with you as water is likely to eventually get in and damage your phone!
