So, you have recently bought yourself a new shiny toy with way more features than your last phone, and it is your favourite device at the moment. Perfectly new, no scratches, no broken glass, and you promised yourself that you won’t do anything stupid and will do your best to keep it as new as possible for as long as possible. However, a few weeks have passed now and you realize that the excitement of having a new phone is slowly fading away and with it also fades your overprotectiveness over your brand-new gadget. So, what do you do in a case like this? You invest in a stylish protective phone case immediately after purchasing your phone. And if you still haven’t bought one, the second-best time is now.
In order to properly protect your phone, you need to be very picky when it comes to the material the case is made of. Plastic is the most widely used material as it is durable and affordable. But not all types of plastic are good for phone cases, so it is best to opt for a model made of polycarbonate plastic. This material is strong and durable, and it is also used for making eyeglasses, bulletproof glass, etc. So, it is not your typical plastic material, and it is rather hard to damage it. A phone in a polycarbonate case has high impact resistance and can endure heavy drops.
Rubber or silicone cases are known for absorbing shock, so a mix from these two is a match made in heaven for your phone. I know that because my UAG iPhone 6 case is made of exactly these materials. The sturdiness of polycarbonate and the shock-absorbing feature of rubber is what every phone owner should look for when buying a protective case. Cases made from this combination of materials are sturdy enough to meet military drop-test standards. Another advantage of this material is that it is lightweight while acting as armor for your phone.
And it seems that the UAG iPhone 6 case is just the ideal model for my device. I have become really attached to this phone, and I felt as if I had a mini heart attack the first time I broke my screen. The replacement was a tad bit expensive, so I promised myself that I will invest in a quality case so that I won’t need to part with my phone anytime soon. The case looked humongous at first, but, as I mentioned, the material is lightweight. When I drop my phone, the edges of the case absorb the shock and leave my phone scratch-free. Being the clumsy person that I am, I tested the functionality of the case enough times that I can vouch for it. And I no longer have to worry about keeping my phone intact after I bought this case – I feel like I am performing a drop test every few weeks. It is worth mentioning that I am tall, which means it is a high drop!
