A lot of people shopping for a case for their new iPhone want something stylish yet protective. They don't want to have to deal with iPhone repair. Unfortunately that’s not always as easy as it may seem. At first, shoppers tend to want something slim that’s not going to add too much bulk to their already super slim phone.
A Popular Brand
One of the best brands for that purpose is Elago. They make a BREATHE case that is sleek, has perforated holes built in which accentuates the look, and comes in two different textures – semi-gloss (shiny) or soft-feeling (grippy feel). These cases are very affordable and popular with those in the know. They definitely provide enough protection for the careful iPhone user who doesn’t drop his/her phone often.
On the other hand, if you’re in the category of “dropper” (he/she who drops their phone at least once a day), a more protective case is in order. The Acase Superleggera is a nice step up from the Elago BREATHE in terms of drop protection. It has what’s known as a dual layer insert which means there’s a silicone sleeve in between the phone and plastic case. This adds for extra cushion and safeguard from falls. These are great cases for the average dropper but to be fair, they’re not the most fashionable.
Protective Case for Survival Mode
And for those of you out there who are beyond the category of dropper, you then are a candidate for the OtterBox or the Griffin Survivor case. These cases have built in plastic screen shields which are touch-sensitive and cover the iPhone glass for added safety. Drop your phone from a two story building – no problem. Drop your phone from a two story building into a pool – problem!
The Waterproof Option
If you’re looking for a waterproof solution, the LifeProof case is for you. They’re shock proof, dust proof, and water proof – up to 9 feet. There are a lot of fakes out in the market however, so be sure to purchase from a reliable retailer or directly from the LifeProof website.
