    i was installing an Otterbox symmetry case and it took a bit more effort to push the corners in than I’m used to. I think maybe the rubber on this version is stiffer. Anyway, is it possible to damage the display by pressing too hard on it?

    Highly doubtful that you would harm the screen.

    Yes, if you push too hard you will crack the glass or bend the metal.

    I put the same case on a family member's 8+ and it was quite difficult. But if you pressed too hard you'd know because the phone would be broken.

    I had a similar experience with that case, except I decided not to keep pushing. Since it was so hard to get the phone in, I thought it might be ridiculously hard to get the phone out. I opted for another case.

    My concern was that the display or capacitive sensors might become damaged

    I wouldn't worry. I had to use a lot of force and the iPhone is still working several weeks later.

    I limited my pressing to the edges (or as close as I could get).

    The otterbox I had on my 6s Plus was the same way, it was very hard to get on and off... I think you’ve got to have hulk strength to break the screen putting on a case though.

    If your glass isn’t broken, or your phone isn’t bent, then you’re fine.

    You know you pushed too hard if one of those two things happened.
