Summer is that time when people are always outside enjoying the sun. Some go to the beach to enjoy the wind, sand and water. Some go for a little hike to breathe some fresh mountain air. While some simply go to the nearby park and have fun with friends and loved ones. Whatever you may be doing outside, one thing is for sure: You have to make sure your phone is safe and is able to withstand tough environments.
So I came up with the 3 things my iPhone case should be able to do so I can make sure my phone is safe this summer.
1. The case should be able to really protect against scratches. I highlighted the word “really” because I’ve tried some cases that didn’t actually protect my phone against scratches.
2. The case should be able to protect against water. If you’re going to the beach or any water park, this is a requirement! Don’t let your phone die just because it got exposed to moisture. Granted, there are times when it depends on the phone itself. But if you know you’ll be going to a “wet environment” with the possibility of people throwing you into the water, get a waterproof phone case.
3. The case should be able to protect the phone when dropped. When I bought my iPhone 5 at Best Buy a couple of months ago, the guy recommended that I purchase an iPhone case because this thinner iPhone might not be able to survive a 5-foot drop. Knowing my clumsy self, I took his advice and bought one. True enough, just a couple of days after that, I dropped my iPhone in the parking lot as I got out of the car. My iPhone’s still good, thank God! These are the types of phone cases you need to protect your phone, especially when you plan on making memories this summer. But I’ve had other cases that just came off of my phone when I dropped it.
Choosing the right phone case can be tricky since you don’t really know how good it performs until you actually use it. But let me just say that most of the cheaper ones I got were not as good as the ones where I had to spend a few more bucks.
You can check out a wide range of phone cases at the Best Buy website! Currently, they have an offer for 10% off your purchase of any Mophie iPhone case which helps you save some money as you make sure your phone is safe.
