Just got your brand new OnePlus 2 handset and looking for a reliable case to protect the new toy against scratches and drop impacts? Fret not, OtterBox case for OnePlus 2 is one of the good solution out there in the market.

Just managed to get my hands on these new cases from OtterBox Asia. The OtterBox case for OnePlus 2 comes in 4 colours – Snow Fire (White-Red as shown below), Night Shadow (Blue-Black as shown below), Glacier and Black.

It is said that the design is largely inspired by qi, a traditional philosophy of balance and life force. The case features a spiral-patterned internal layer with multiple vents on the outer shell, integrating innovative technology with inspiring ancient principles.

Personally, the white back casing with inner red suggestions does look refreshing and youthful while the Night Shadow below passes off as more professional for the working professionals.

The case comes in 2 segments – a) Synthetic rubber internal slipcover and b) Exterior polycarbonate shell.

Both the segments are made with good quality materials. The polycarbonate feels sturdy and does not attract those annoying fingerprints even with prolonged usage. The inner synthetic ‘silicon feel’ slipover hugs the OnePlus 2 holding the phone right in place to provide the needed cushioning.

Unlike some of the other protection cases offered in the market, OtterBox cases are made with simplicity in mind. It is pretty straightforward to assemble these cases without much effort and I must say the overall cutting is precise – no more and no less.

With some beveled opening for the camera area, it does prevent scratches on the camera lenses. A quick test on the camera shots confirmed no undesirable halo lighting produced which some cases do suffer such issues.

The openings at the bottom are well catered to the stereo sound output and allowing the standard USB Type C cable to  be inserted for phone charging.

Overall, the phone with the OtterBox case feels secured in the grip. The rubber sides provide the required friction to reduce the chances of the phone slipping off the grip, while the back polycarbonate surface provides a silky feel and yet not creating a fingerprint magnet. My only gripe is that the elevated edge at the fingerprint sensor does obstruct the placement of the thumb especially if the person has a rather large one.

In short, some of the key features for the Otterbox case are:

a. Dual-layer construction
b. Protects against bumps, drops and shock
c. Pocket-friendly slim design
d. Multiple vent design
e. 1-year limited warranty

There is also an interesting video to demonstrate how the Otterbox case help the OnePlus 2 to survive a drop – totally unscathed:

As for the sports lovers, there is even the Otterbox UNIVERSAL ARMBAND.

The silicone flex cradle fits all smartphones including the new OnePlus 2. I have last tried to squeeze in the OnePlus 2 with the Otterbox case on. Though its little overstretched but the phone stayed well in place while I proceeded with my regular run. Indeed it lived up to their claim – ‘…Trust in our rugged OtterBox Armband to complement your lifestyle. No matter the adventure, OtterBox Armband provides unweathered freedom!’
