In this day and age, one thing has become the command center for people’s relationships with others, important information, and a large portion of entertainment: the cell phone.
With all the powers these mystical little devices have, they are not yet invincible. As something that has come to be so important in our lives, naturally we want to protect them. The best way to do that is with a phone case. The remaining question is what kind of case? Do you go for something that is “guaranteed” to protect your phone from harm or do you pick something much more expressive of your personality that makes you smile?
Here are some things to consider:
1. Is your phone itself reliable? Some phones are sturdier than others, so the kind of case you want could depend on the phone. IPhones are infamous for having their screens crack easily.
2. Will a cracked screen/broken phone bother you? Some people don’t mind if their phone screen is cracked, as long as it works and they can read it. If your phone has a warranty, you may be able to get a broken one replaced, depending on the terms of your warranty.
   3. What do you want on your phone case? Some cases aren’t as good at protecting against breaks, but may display your favorite actor. You may have to settle for a compromise between the two, depending on your priorities.
All in all, phone cases are important, because you need to protect the device that holds all your information, memories and secrets. Just be sure to make wise choices when protecting your phone.
