    When I worked for myself I purchased Otterbox cases. I've been employed for the past 4 years and the company I work for purchase cheap cases, for both phones and tablets.
    I've not heard of anyone in our field service team breaking a device, despite the fact that we audit repair shops (i.e. we don't work in offices) using our tablets on a daily basis. I wonder if the extra expense is justified.

    For my personal iPhones and iPads, I have always used the Otterbox Defender cases. My son uses the Lifeproof cases. We have never had any breakage. That being said, I use less expensive cases on my work devices. The last 3 have been Unicorn Beetle from Amazon. This was for Samsung devices, both tablets and phone. The cases seem to fit well, and I have not had any damage with these either. They offer similar 2-layer protection and they are considerably less expensive. ALL of my devices end up hitting the floor at some point, some more often than others.

    I use an OtterBox Symmetry folio series on my iPad mini. It is slimmer than say a Defender series; cost me about $40 via Amazon. I'm very happy with it. Not sure if they still offer this series or not; but my reckoning is that compared with potential damage if the device fell unprotected the cost was a good investment.
