OtterBox Defender Series Case for iPhone 8 Plus / 7 Plus

Overall, we found the OtterBox Defender a bit too awkward and expensive to recommend. Read More

  • Heavy-duty protection
  • Comes in a variety of colors

Cons

  • Frustrating to use

The iPhone 8 Plus is a top-shelf smartphone covered in glass. It might survive a tumble onto a carpet, but if your case-less new phone meets the sidewalk, you're probably going to walk away with a splintered screen. So a good, reliable case is a must.

These are some of the best iPhone 8 Plus cases you can get online now.

Editor's Note

The recommendations in this guide are based on thorough product and market research by our team of expert product reviewers. The picks are based on examining user reviews, product specifications, and, in some limited cases, our experience with the specific products named.

Speck Presidio Grip

The Speck Presidio Grip is a single-layer, no-frills case that comes in a host of different color combinations. It gets its name from the pattern of slightly raised lines along its backside, which gives your hand something to hold onto.

Speck promises drop protection for up to 10 feet, but given its simple design, I wouldn't bank on it keeping your iPhone 8 Plus safe during a particularly nasty tumble. The Speck Presidio Grip is a safe bet for people who want to keep things simple and forgo a bulky, ultra-protective shell. Amazon's customer feedback indicates overall satisfaction, as well.

The model we tested fits both the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8 Plus. It comes in purple, black, grey/green, grey/pink, blue/black, grey/grey, teal/blue, and white/black.

Pros

  • Patterned texture

  • Comes in a variety of colors

Cons

  • None that we could find

Supcase Unicorn Beetle

The Supcase Unicorn Beetle case is a transparent, single-layer case with rubber bumpers lining the edges.

One major issue with the Unicorn Beetle case are its buttons, which take the form of marked spots on the edges where there's less resistance in the rubber, rather than actual, elevated buttons. This makes your iPhone's volume and power buttons difficult to press, which puts it at a slight disadvantage compared to some of its contemporaries.

Still, for the price, you might be willing to put up with a less-than-ideal button situation. The Unicorn Beetle isn't the most attractive case in the game, but it's affordable and feels sturdy enough to protect your iPhone from minor mishaps.

The Supcase Unicorn Beetle case fits both the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8 Plus. All versions have a transparent back with bumpers that come in your choice of black, navy, pink, gold, green, or rose gold.

Pros

  • Rubber bumpers around the edges

Cons

  • Can make buttons difficult to press

Otterbox Commuter Series case for iPhone 8 Plus

This heavy-duty, two-piece iPhone 8 Plus case is perfect for someone looking for a rugged case with a boat-load of protection.

Available in several fun colors (including indigo, pink, and black), this sturdy case offers all of the heavy-duty protection one would expect from OtterBox. It's not the most affordable case on the market, but we recommend it for active, on-the-go people who routinely put their phone in dangerous situations. Although it's not as bulky as the OtterBox case we listed for the iPhone 8, you probably won't be able to sustain a wireless charge while your iPhone 8 Plus is encased in this one.

Pros

  • Heavy-duty protection

  • Fairly affordable

  • Not super bulky

Cons

  • Can't sustain a wireless charge

Like most heavy-duty style iPhone cases, the Unicorn Beetle Pro from Supcase features multiple layers of protection, including a thin, plastic screen protector. Perhaps cases like these just aren't for me, but given the inherent strength of an iPhone's glass display and the thinness of the screen protector, I really don't see a use for this feature other than collecting a bunch of oily fingerprints. Put it this way: If your phone display manages to come away from a drop without cracking, it won't be because of this case's screen protector.

However, if you lead the type of lifestyle that demands heavy-duty smartphone protection (and you don't mind the plastic screen protector), the Unicorn Beetle Pro is a decent option that won't set you back very much. Its sturdy build and multi-layer design inspires the type of confidence you would hope for from a case of this style.

Pros

  • Multiple layers of protection

Cons

  • The screen protector feels useless

OtterBox Defender

The OtterBox Defender Series is one of the more heavy-duty cases in our round-up. Unfortunately, despite the Defender Series' three layers of shock absorbant protection, the case is too frustrating to use and too costly for most users.

Right off the bat, I found the case's relatively chintzy pieces to be difficult to snap into place. Once settled, the case's awkward plastic screen protector put a distracting layer between my thumbs and the iPhone 8 Plus's screen. On Amazon, users are split between those who don't mind the plastic screen protector and those, like me, who can't stand it. Given the expense, the OtterBox Defender Series case is probably not worth the trouble.

The model we tested fits both the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8 Plus. It's available in a number of color options black, two slightly different blue combinations, beige/blue, blue/mint, orchid/purple, agave green/maritime blue, and plum/rose gold.

Pros

  • Heavy-duty protection

  • Comes in a variety of colors

Cons

  • Frustrating to use

  • Awkward screen protector
