10 Reasons Why Need to Put a Case on Your Phone
This article is a guest post from Mendel Mendelovits, Chief Marketing Officer at Unlimited Cellular – the trusted source for authentic brand products for cell phone accessories since 2001.
Phone case is a must for smartphone owners. This is most especially true for people who participate in extreme phone pinching (a real thing we did not make up) and those who take death-defying (and occasionally death-inducing) extreme selfies.
Why Need to Put a Case on Your Phone
After all, a new case cost just about $35 while a new smartphone cost $650 or more. Putting a case on your smartphone just makes sense. Here’s why you should keep your phone with a strong, durable case:
1 Smartphones are Fragile, Light and Thin
Phones these days are so thin and so light that they’re not very heavy-duty. It’s nothing like the indestructible Nokia 3310, anyway. A phone case adds a much-needed stronger built, so your phone doesn’t break or bend.
2 No Phone Insurance
You think an extra $10 per month, plus a $50 deductible, is just too much. You prefer to take good care of your belongings instead of buying phone insurance. A phone case is your phone insurance. It is also a part of “taking care of your belongings”.
3 Avoiding Scratches
Most smartphones are usually made of a tough metal or plastic. Moreover, the screen has a glass that is special ultra-tough Gorilla Glass. However your phone will be inevitably be scratched without a case, even if you never drop your phone or step on it.
4 Cases Protect most Phone Parts
While cases can’t protect the phone screen, it is still important to shield other phone parts. Cases protect the delicate electronic parts inside. Your phone is a piece of technology, after all.
5 Buying a New Phone is Expensive
High-quality cases can be quite pricy. You must remember that $50 is a lot less than $650, which is the cost of a new phone.
6 More Friction
The problem with sleek phones is that they are too slippery. Buying a rubberized case that provides a better grip can make the difference between you holding onto or dropping your precious device.
7 Concealing an Old Model
You might think that it is nonsense putting a protective case on your older phone. Face it, you won’t really care if it breaks. A case does more than just protect: It hides the fact that you’re still using the original iPhone 6.
8 You bring your Phone Everywhere
And, we mean everywhere, literally. You might still even take it into some places you probably shouldn’t, like the bathroom or on a date. It’s just highly unlikely that a gadget that spends 24 hours a day with you is never going to be accidentally knocked off a table, no matter how careful you are.
9 Has some Additional Functions
Cases do more than just protect! There are plenty of multifunctional cases out there that act as wallets, battery packs, bottle openers, and tasers. Yes, tasers.
10 A Decorative Statement
Many people can have the same phone models. Putting a case on your phone shows off your personality. More importantly, it will also help you identify your device.
It all comes down to personal preference in the end. Some factors are how accident prone you are, and what phone you have and how you’re using it. You must evaluate your daily activities such as regular hike, playing sports, or even impressing your friends with your iPhone juggling skills.
You might want to take a closer look at a case if you do those kinds of things. You will probably be okay with a less intense form of protection when you’re really careful. We suggest trying out a case and seeing how you like it. You can always take it off and try both ways to see which method you prefer after all.
