Why You Should Buy A Phone Case And How To Pick The Right One

When purchasing a phone case beware of the numerous storefronts and e-commerce sites asking for ridiculous amounts money for their high-end cases. Save the iphone repair shop costs and get a quality phone case from a no make brand. Unless the company has not tried at all to provide its customer base with a passable product, all phone cases will work the same. Usually you are paying high prices for the aesthetic design and the brand name or logo printed onto the case. The type of phone case you buy will depend on your personal style and preferences. It will also depend on how often you tend to drop your phone. If you're like me, this happens to be several times a day. If you're in Quebec like me check out some reviews of shops like this:



If you are trying to save money after buying a typically expensive smartphone, consider buying a less known brand. Often E-Bay is the best source for cheap phone cases, but it can be difficult to determine quality by looking at a picture. More often than not the poster is not located anywhere near you. I like to search websites like Kijiji for people living close to me who updated to a new phone and is selling a phone case that no longer fits their device. This means that the case shouldn't be damaged because the seller would want to keep the case had it fit the new phone. Since it doesn't fit their phone the case becomes completely useless. One man's garbage is another man's gold.

If you have a little bit of money to spend on a case the possibilities are seemingly endless. Again, the type of case you need will depend completely on how aggressively you use and drop your phone. I broke my screen several times while using typical cases that only cover the back and sides of my iPhone. Each screen repair costs sixty dollars and this is on the cheaper end of the scale. I highly recommend my new Otter Box case because I have dropped it at least fifty times since I bought it and my phone was completely protected each time. Surprisingly, the phone case is still in sellable condition even after all of the drops. Ironically the cost of an Otter Box case and at least when I purchased mine is the same as the cost of one screen replacement.

There are some minor details about my case that I'm not too happy about. Mainly the fact that although there is a slot in the case for the head phone jack to be found, the slot in the case and the headphone jack are not at all aligned. It's a minor inconvenience, but something to consider when looking at cases. Make sure your charger can fit properly into the charging slot as well. I've experienced needing to remove a phone case every time the phone was charging due to this lack of attention to detail by the manufacturer. The same thing goes for the lens of the camera built into the phone. If the case covers it, you will have to remove the case every time you want to take a picture. If you don't take many pictures then this won't bother you, but for Instagram and SnapChat users this can be extremely annoying.

My advice to anyone in need of a phone case is to be patient, but not too patient. Don't buy a case as soon as you see it because you may end up buying something that doesn't fit your needs. More importantly, don't wait too long to buy a case because the longer you wait the longer your phone remains vulnerable to devastating drops and shattered screens.
