OtterBox Resurgence Power Case and Alpha Glass Screen Protector Review

Price and Where to Buy OtterBox Resurgence Power Case and Alpha Glass Screen Protector: $50 for the power case and $29.95 for the screen protector on OtterBox’s website.

Power Case Pros:

Power Case Cons:

  • Case is tough to open to get your phone in and out

Screen Protector Pros:

  • Made out of ultra thin tempered glass
  • Display clarity was improved on my old iPhone with the screen protector
  • Reactive-touch screen means you can use your iPhone as normal

  • Easy installation—no instructions required (just peel back the protective screen, line up with your iPhone’s button, and stick on)
  • Won’t trap air bubbles underneath
  • Protects your screen from scratches and shattering
  • Lifetime warranty will give you one free replacement of the Alpha Glass for improper installation and unlimited free replacements for anything else that goes wrong (such as small scratches)

How the OtterBox Resurgence Power Case and Alpha Glass Screen Protector Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. Smartphones are essential for travel these days. Keep yours charged and protected with the combination of the Resurgence Power Case and Alpha Glass Screen Protector.
  • Value: 7/10. Both products are fairly high priced compared to other screen protectors and power cases. However, the quality of both items (especially the screen protector) justify the cost.
  • Durability: 10/10. Drop your phone without fear—these products will keep your screen and phone safe.
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. The Resurgence Power Case has the one of the most fashionable designs of all of the rechargeable cases that we’ve tried. Plus, the Alpha Glass Screen Protector keeps your screen looking better than new.

Final Verdict: The Alpha Glass Screen Protector is a million times better than the cheap plastic protectors that you can get elsewhere. It’s definitely worth the money if you hold your breath every time you accidentally drop your smartphone face down. If you run out of battery life often while using your phone on the road, the Resurgence Power Case is a great way to protect your phone and keep it charged as well.
