Your smartphone is your lifeline to the digital world and you rely on it for everything from staying connected to capturing precious memories. But accidents happen, and drops, bumps and scratches can quickly turn your trusted device into a costly and inconvenient ordeal.
That is why selecting phone cases with the right protection is essential. However, with so many options available in the market, choosing the right one can be overwhelming.
Whether you want to shop for a rugged phone case that can withstand extreme conditions or a slim option that provides just enough protection without bulk, here is everything you need to know before adding it to your cart.
1. Choose a thicker shell
Thicker phone cases provide a buffer between your device and potential impacts, reducing the force that your phone experiences. This can help absorb the shock and prevent your device from cracking or breaking. Additionally, thicker phone cases also provide added protection against scratches and dings, keeping your device looking new for longer.
When selecting a phone case, consider the level of protection you need and your lifestyle. If you are a digital nomad who is constantly on the go and looking for maximum protection, choose thicker phone cases with a proven track record in shock absorption.
2. Look out for shock-absorbent materials
However, if you prefer a slimmer or sleeker case, look out for shock-absorbent materials instead. Silicone and rubber are excellent options for reducing the force of an impact to keep your device safe from drops as well as scratches. Besides boasting excellent shock absorption properties, they are also lightweight, flexible and have a good grip to reduce the chances of your device slipping out of your hand.
Both silicone and rubber phone cases are available in a wide range of designs, making it easy to find one that matches your style while offering the protection you need.
For instance, the Lino Hue iPhone 13 case uses a Hybrid Silicore™ construction for a soft yet sturdy exterior that can withstand a drop of up to 6 feet at the same time.
3. Pay attention to bumpers
When selecting phone cases, it is also important to pay attention to the bumpers for added protection. Bumpers are the raised edges around the case that help absorb shock and protect your phone from damage in case of a fall or impact.
Consider the level of protection you need based on your lifestyle and phone usage. Phone cases with bumpers are especially fitting if you lead an active lifestyle, spending significant amounts of time outdoors exercising, commuting, and adventuring.
Tip: Look out for phone cases with raised edges that help absorb the impact of a fall or drop, reducing the chances of the screen coming into contact with the ground or other hard surfaces.
4. Consider drop protection
Drop protection is not a one-size-fits-all feature. If you are always on the go or enjoy the outdoors, choosing phone cases that have been tested to provide drop protection is your best bet at keeping your device safe in case of accidental drops.
We created the Combat phone cases with an inner ShockSorb™ structure that boasts 360º impact bumpers that can withstand even the harshest impacts, giving you greater peace of mind wherever you go.
5. Check for important features
Beyond just guarding against knocks and bumps, you should also consider other additional features that make everyday tasks easier without compromising protection.
If you are someone who frequently uses your phone for work, phone cases with a built-in kickstand can make it easier to prop up your device for video calls or to take notes. Additional features like card slots allow you to keep your essentials in one place while an integrated grip makes it easier to hold your phone, reducing the likelihood of drops or slips.
Designed with functionality in mind, the Novo iPhone 14 cases feature a unique combination of a hand grip, stand and mount built into a single protective sleeve, ensuring you get full use out of your phone without compromising on comfort.
