Buyers remorse from the OtterBox Symmetry case and Verizon tempered glass screen protector I bought with the Pixel 3.
Phone fell off the kitchen counter and the screen split down the middle. I have a second screen crack from impact with the car keys in my coat pocket.
I loved the OtterBox Commuter cases / screen protector I had on my old Samsung and LG phones. Phones fell out of my pocket all the time, including multiple bicycle rides, and never had any phone damage. Sadly, OtterBox doesn't make the Commuter case for the Pixel 3. I figured the Symmetry was good enough. OtterBox "certified" drop protecton can't doesn't mean much.
I've googled Pixel 3 cases and screen protectors and learned a couple of things.
So, really, what I'm after is opionions from people that have had good experiences with Pixel 3 cases and screen protectors. If I'm going to spend $300 to replace my screen, I want that to be my first and only time. I don't consider myself super-abusive, but I guess I'm as clumsy as a teenage boy. I need a case that will protect the phone from drops on floors, parking lots, sidewalks, driveways and a screen protect the screen from stuff in pockets and purses (keys, lipstick cases, mascara cases, etc.).
