Are Phone Cases Really Important?

Many consumers wonder if they should bother putting a case on their phone. The short answer is yes. If you have a mobile phone, you need a case.

No matter how careful you are, chances are high that you will drop your phone at some point.

When you do, the cost of repairing the damage is much higher than the price of the best protective iPhone cases.

What happens when you drop your phone? 

Most people worry about their screen cracking, but that is one of the easier fixes.

  • The camera lens can crack.
  • The delicate inner workings of the phone can be damaged.
  • The phone can completely stop working.

Tips for choosing a case for your phone

You don't have to spend a lot of money to get a good phone case.

  • Choose a case with iPhone case bands. These bands on the back are perfect for those times when you have the phone in your hand while scrolling through social media, using the speaker, or watching videos. The band provides added security when your phone is in your hand.
  • A small lip around the front provides a layer of protection for the screen should your phone fall face down.
  • In most cases, a phone case should not be bulky or encase the entire phone; a sleek, lightweight case is the best choice for most people.
  • Color doesn't matter. Pick a color that you like and that you won't get tired of looking at. Many shoppers choose one in a neutral color, such as black or white, and one in a brighter color like red or blue; this enables them to switch them out.

Special circumstances

If you work or spend time around water, play sports, or have extreme hobbies, you'll want a rugged phone case. Waterproof and dust-proof cases completely encase your phone to provide extra protection. Many users report that while these rugged cases work well, they can be difficult to use; the sound is muffled, making it difficult to hear.

The sensible solution is to buy one of these rugged cases and a traditional case with a band for when you're not near water or engaging in extreme activities.

If you're going to have a mobile phone, make sure that you never use it without a case. Cases are vital to the safety of your phone. Don't take a chance with such a valuable possession.
