Don't Let Your iPhone Go Uncovered! 3 Tips To Keep It Protected
It isn't a matter of 'if,' it's a matter of 'when.' If you bring your iPhone with you everywhere you go, you really ought to be investing in some protective gear for it. Not all protection is the same. We'll walk you through some of the options of various cell phone accessories for the iPhone so you can make the right choice to keep your most valuable tool safe.
Cover your corners
Don't get iPhone cases unless they have extra padding and protection on the corners. Why is this important? The majority of drop tests show that most iPhones end up landing on a corner when dropped. With the extra corner protection, your iPhone is likely to last a lot longer.
Protect the screen.
Unlike the new iPad, the iPhone 3Gs screen isn't nearly as scratch resistant. You'll want to get a thin film to put over it. That way, when your iPhone brushes up against your car keys or whatever else is lurking inside your pockets, it won't get all scratched up. These iPhone covers may not help you keep your iPhone in perfect condition, but they will definitely help.
Get a hard case.
Sure, you can get an iphone leather case, but it won't do a thing to absorb some of the shock heading its way when you drop your iPhone on concrete. When the iPhone impacts the ground, hard cases help preserve it much better than their softer cousins. Don't take any chances. Give yourself a better shot at keeping your iPhone protected for that fatal, yet inevitable, mistake.
The iPhone is built to last and take the abuse of being in your pocket. It's a great device on its own, but you can get much more use out of it when you follow these simple rules. Good luck and keep on doing the most with the world's favorite portable phone!
