How well does your phone case work??? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey guys, was wondering if these phone cases perform how they say they do. If you've got a phone case, did it actually protect the phone when it dropped (if it has actually dropped)? Or does the phone still get damaged?

    I've found it depends upon the type of case/the phone you've got and the way in which you drop it. When I dropped my iPhone 4s with a bumper case it was fine, when I dropped my Samsung S4 with a similar case on it got a very slight dent in it. However, when I dropped the S4 with a flip case (which I previously believed offered more protection as it covered the screen) the screen totally smashed an was completely unusable.
    So all in all some work as they are supposed to, some don't. It all really rely's on how the phone is dropped/which part of the phone makes impact first as opposed to the type of case

    Really depends what phone case you buy. Unfortunately, the more fashionable and fancy phone cases, the less protective they seem to be. Similarly, the cheaper the phone cases are, the less protective they are (obviously...). Spend a lot on a phone case, and you'll get a good protective product. Buy an Otterbox phone case and you're phone is pretty much indestructible.

    I got my phone case for £1.50 on eBay. I have dropped my phone numerous times and it is still in one piece.
