Tips on Choosing the Perfect Case to Protect Your Phone

/*Comments Off on Tips on Choosing the Perfect Case to Protect Your Phone */

No matter how careful you are, your phone will find the way to slip out of your hands. Unfortunately, all of us have experienced this unpleasant situation. For this reason, it is more than recommended to act pre-emptively and to get yourself a nice protective case for your beloved gadget. With so many types of cases to choose from, it is a little bit difficult to select one that suits you and your lifestyle, isn’t it? To make the selection process easier for you, we’ve gathered useful information and talked with Phone Case Shop Brisbane experts for even better insider tips! 

Basic Protection Level

A shattered glass screen is probably the most common issue that brings people to a repair shop. A corner of the smartphone is the most vulnerable spot when it comes to screen shattering. If you want a basic protection, opt for phone cases made of silicone, rubber, or similar shock-absorbent materials, which effectively cover those vulnerable corners and absorb shock. A plastic case, on the other hand, is not something the experts would recommend, since it is likely to translate impacts to the smartphone itself.

The next question you should ask yourself is, where and how you use your smartphone. If your phone usually experiences only minor falls, drops and spills, you can go for translucent slim cases that will both show off the design of your smartphone and protect it. A thin fit case or carbon skin is a nice option, if your biggest concern are scratches. Such a case protects the back and sides of your phone against damage and scratches from dust particles, keys etc. Keep in mind, though, that a thin fit case doesn’t offer a good protection against drops and falls. Therefore, it’s not recommended for clumsy users.

Higher Protection Level

For maximum protection, that would absorb greater shock, opt for bulky, heavier, thicker cases. These are particularly recommended for teenagers, because they are much prone to stepping on their phones or dropping them. The OtterBox Defender series undergo extreme durability tests and is more than recommended for younger phone users (check out Otterbox Defender for Google Pixel 6 Pro).

A rugged case gives the maximum protection possible, but it does make your phone look a bit hefty. Many users find them not enough aesthetically pleasing, especially when compared to thin fit cases. Heavy duty rugged phone cases are typically resistant to water, dust and shock and they protect the gadgets against more severe drops and scratches. These cases come with thicker bodies made of rubber and with reinforced edges. If you don’t want to compromise on the looks of your smartphone, you can find eye-catching heavy duty rugged cases too. You’ll have to look harder, though. Get yourself inspired by checking out Best Heavy Duty Samsung S22 Ultra Cases.

Take Your Needs into Account

Compared to screen damage, water damage is not so common. But after summer vacations, many people visit repair shops with their phones. If you don’t want to damage your phone if you take it by mistake along for a dip, opt for a drop-tested, waterproof protection. Even if your phone is water resistant itself, saltwater would damage it, because it is corrosive. To avoid a few splashes and spills, however, waterproof protection is not that necessary, because the phone’s water resistance would do the trick too.

For iPhone users, protective cases with additional features and functions are various and easy to find. If you don’t have iPhone, there are cases with special features for your device too, although the choices are a bit narrow. For instance, there are cases that can charge your phone too, if you often end up with your battery low. Nevertheless, battery cases are mostly heavy and bulky. Yes, there are slim ones, but only because their battery is rather small and won’t make your battery life much longer. Anyway, for frequent travelers and busy professionals, battery cases are worth considering.

Flip-open folio or wallet cases with pockets allow users to keep cash, tickets, or cards. In addition, they are pocket-friendly and elegant. Offering all-around protection, they are perfect for people who tend to sling their phones in a bag. When it comes to impact protections, they vary a lot. Therefore, make sure they offer coverage on the corners and/or sides.

Screen Protection

Most retailers suggest using a screen protector, because they reduce the chance of getting cracks and scratches on the touchscreen. Furthermore, there are protectors that reduce glare or offer additional privacy by cutting viewing angles. For the highest protection against scratches, it’s more recommended to get tempered glass screen protectors than those made of plastic.

Still, you want to find a screen protector that won’t negatively impact the usability and the aesthetic of your phone. The good news is that there are screen protectors that wouldn’t lower the touchscreen’s sensitivity. The bad news is that they usually cost significantly more. In our opinion, the best option is a 9H hardness rating: it’s optimally thick, while at the same time the high-definition clarity is incorporated in the design. Finally, screen protectors won’t protect your screen against damaging impacts from the corners and sides. Therefore, you should use a screen protector together with a protective case.

Perfect Phone Case

Obviously, you want a phone case that looks nice, so picking a design and color that suit you perfectly is important. However, there are some things you should also take into account. First, a phone case should feel good in hand. To enhance grip, many manufacturers offer cases with special finishes or ridged sides.

Pay attention to cut-outs because they are equally important as the design. The cheaper cases use plastic or rubber material over the buttons, while a bit more expensive ones have buttons built into them, enabling users to not to compromise on the tactile feel. Openings for camera lenses and ports shouldn’t cause problems while using a gadget, therefore they should be generous enough.

Bottom line, if you don’t have an opportunity to try the case before buying it, make sure you read reviews and specifications. Once you know exactly what you need, it will be easier for you to focus on the features you actually need.
