The Otterbox brand for phone & tablet cases has been a global industry leader for years. It has created extremely high standards for these types of products that has been difficult for newer brands to compete with. In addition, just having the Otterbox logo on your devices creates a feeling of safety, protection, and trust. Otterbox, without fail, was the best at what they specialized in. They successfully won over the market by creating quality, long-lasting, and durable products-and therefore, they were able to charge a pretty penny if you wanted the security for your $1000 devices that was, in the past tense, without parallel.
However, in today's market, especially with the take-over of Amazon, Otterbox cases, in my opinion, have been knocked down the ladder significantly. Up and coming brands for device protection products have begun selling virtually the same quality products (if not better,) and for a fraction of the price. Today's competitors offer cases made of the same materials which feature the same promises of military-grade/waterproof/shockproof protection that Otterbox was known for. These components are just not as rare in today's market. Plus, a lot of the newer phone models require additional protection, such as screen protectors (with all of the necessary tools to be able to apply it to your device yourself, without the help of store associates at Verizon or Apple), and external camera covers. The newer brands offer bundles that include all of these features for the same, or lower, cost as one Otterbox case (without the screen protectors and additional items).
And when you've purchased/financed a device that ranges from $1500-$5000 and are bound to a 2-3 year contract, you are probably feeling the necessity to purchase multiple screen protectors, external camera covers, even cases: one that has the flip open wallet feature, one that has a kickstand (to be able to film without a tri-pod), one you can take underwater while swimming...the list of things we need from our cases goes on. And after spending money like that on a device, who wants to spend $100's on multiple products, when you can order everything you need in a bundle from a 5-star brand on Amazon, with the backing from countless user reviews, photos, videos, ratings, and testimonials.
If Otterbox got on board with today's market, lowered their prices, included more in your purchase (multiple screen and camera protectors like the younger brands), they would stand a fighting chance.
In my opinion, you can get the same product, if not better, for a lot cheaper, and get the same protection.
