2019 How To Choose A Custom Phone Case?
We spend hundreds of dollars on a new smartphone, and we all want it to be protected well, but there are some common problems our phones will face: drops, scratches, cracks, and water damage issues, etc., what can we do to them? The best way is to pick a perfect phone case for your cellphone, how can we make it? The following article will help you to choose the right one.
First of all, we should know what exactly phone cases were made before we make our decisions. Mostly in the market, we use these kinds of materials to make protective phone covers:
1. Silicone/Gel/Rubber: These soft and flexible materials go by many names, but they are generally cheap to produce, provide moderate protection and usually add grip to prevent accidental drops.
2. PC/TPU: These are the most common plastics used in smartphone cases. Polycarbonate offers good scratch and impact resistance, while TPU is a little softer and less ideal for impact resistance. Multiple layers using both of these materials tend to provide better protection than you’d get from a single layer of either. These plastics also allow for more intricate and sophisticated designs than silicone.
3. Leather/leatherette: Leather or leather-style materials are another common choices, particularly for folio, flip and wallet-style cases. They tend to wear more nicely than plastics but tend to be a bit bulkier on average than plastic cases. Within this category, genuine leather cases tend to cost more than cases made with synthetic leather alternatives, but both offer a classic look and feel.
4. Aluminum: Metals are less commonly used in smartphone cases as they have a tendency to affect wireless signal strength, but through clever engineering (or the use of multiple materials) it is possible to avoid this drawback. Aluminum alloys are a common choice, offering excellent rigidity and scratch protection, but perhaps less impact resistance than a more flexible material.
5. Wood: Wood isn’t commonly used for smartphone cases, as it is costly to produce en masse. Its inflexibility also means multiple pieces or adhesives must be used to attach it around your phone. However, it does provide a unique look and feel, with decent protection as well.
( Now we are familiar to the materials and how they protect our phones cool~, but you should keep reading if you think those are not enough to make your choice. )
Secondly, ARE THERE ANY SPECIAL FUNCTIONS COME WITH A PHONE CASE? Sure! There are thousands of cell phone cases on the market which all have similar and/or different features, what are they?
1. Ring/Kickstand: these are most common parts with phone cases, made of metal and plastic, sometimes painted or electroplated, that were processed on the back of the case to either stand your smartphone when watching videos or offering the chance to grip your phone firmly.
2. Selfie: a selfie case is one that includes forward-facing lights, allowing you to take better-lit photos.
3. Mount: cases may include mounts of all kinds, allowing you to affix your phone to a car's vents, a magnetic holder, your belt or even your finger. This is particularly helpful in cars and/or for bulky cases that won't easily fit in a standard-size pocket.
4. Wallet: a wallet case is one that includes card slots and/or pockets, allowing you to keep ID, credit cards, tickets and other important pieces of paper or plastic close at hand. Folio cases commonly include wallet functionality, but you can also find cases with concealed card storage on the back side.
From materials to functions, you may now be capable of picking the right phone case.
Wait! The phone cover only protects the back part of my smartphone, what about the screen? Well, you know there is something called Tempered Glass, right? Actually, there is some kind of smartphone cases with 360 protections, but we don’t like to use them. So Screen Protector will be the best choice.
About Screen Protector
Screen protectors do exactly what the name implies (they protect your screen). These are generally glass cutouts that fit perfectly on your screen to prevent any scratches from actually getting to your screen.
Many devices ship with screen protectors, and there are plenty of places that sell them for every device on the market. These can help reduce the chance of scratches or cracks appearing on your touchscreen, but they inevitably impact the aesthetic and sometimes usability as well.
If you’re going to buy a screen protector, then make sure it’s made for your device and buy it right away, because any imperfection on your screen is going to increase the chances that you’ll end up with bubbles. Follow the installation instructions carefully and apply the screen protector slowly, as patience makes for the best results.
