Are Phone Cases Important? Our Case For Using A Phone Case

Are Phone Cases Important? Our Case For Using A Phone Case

If you’ve ever found yourself wondering, “do phone cases protect your phone,” you’re not alone. Over the last five years, our phones have become more than just a device for calling or texting. They’re a source of constant information and education. A media outlet for us to entertain ourselves and escape. As well as a warehouse for all of our memories that we want to make last forever. That’s why protecting your phone with a durable phone case is vital in making sure your investment lasts.

The fact is, 50% of people globally break their phones

If you’re anything like me or the rest of the world, there’s been at least one time where you’ve made a mistake that’s wound up in a broken or unusable phone.

That’s why we’ve listed our top 6 facts about how we break our phones, and why phone cases are important to ensure any “what if” moments in life don’t end up in shattered dreams.

Globally, 50% Of People With Phones Accidentally Break Or Shatter Them

Whether you’re out on the town, at work, or at home, your phone doesn’t have a truly safe place where it’s free from damage. A phone’s life is full of peril. Unless you have a pillow room, as Hugh Hefner did, but we all can’t have that.

Kind of like in the auto industry, where more accidents happen when we’re close to our homes, the same scenario seems to carry over into the phone industry.

The number one place where society seems to have a difficult time with their phones is inside their home. Whether we’re in the living room watching TV, in the kitchen making our meals, or in the bathroom, we may feel comfortable inside our home, but our phones are anything but safe.

That’s why it’s vital to take the time to research a protective phone case that fits your personality and offers drop proof protection so you can ensure you’re not joining the growing percentage.

A durable phone case is a form of phone insurance with some style. But, let’s face it, our phones are becoming more like works of art. For that reason, many people don’t like to cover them up with a case, and that’s winding up in a lot of broken phones.

Now, you can have the best of both worlds in a clear phone case. They let you show off the beauty of your device while providing drop proof protection as well as scratch resistant features.

Almost 30% Of People Have Cracked Or Shattered Their Screen

If you buy a protective or durable phone case, you need to make sure you continue to use it. The fact is, the average time from when people normally buy their phones to when they break or shatter their phone screen is normally around three months. That number is pretty astonishing.

What typically happens, we buy a protective case (that may look like a brick), use it for a few months, then as we begin to get more comfortable with our phone, the bulky case tends to come off, and we start to use it without one.

That’s our greatest fault because that’s when accidents happen. Just more reason to show why it’s vital to get a durable and stylish case that doesn’t compromise protection.

But remember, phone protection doesn’t just stop with getting a durable case. You want to make sure you have a screen protector to avoid any shattering or cracking in the instance that you drop your phone and it lands face down.

Almost 40% Of People Will Drop Their Phones As They Answer Them

The scenario plays inside my head like a bad sitcom. Our phone rings or buzzes in our pocket, purse, or bag. Our serotonin levels increase wondering, “who could it be,” and in all that excitement, butterfingers. We fumble our phone like it’s a hot-potato and time seems to slow as we watch it land face first on the ground.

What’s really surprising is that globally, 21% of people are using a phone with a cracked screen, and in the U.S. it’s even higher at 30%.

Not only is it an ugly eyesore, but people also tend to cut their fingers while using a cracked phone.

That’s why it’s important to find a phone case that has raised bezel technology. This protective tactic places more durable rubber around the edges of your case and provides a cushion in case it lands face down or on a corner edge.

Almost 30% Of People Have Caused Water Damage To Their Phone

What's a phone's worst enemy? Water. Oh, how it calls to our phones like a siren calling sailors to rocky shores.

But, when we’re talking about water damage with phones, we’re not only referring to bodies of water like your friend’s pool, or the lake, or even the Pacific. The number one place where we drop our phones and get water damage is the toilet.

Do you carry your phone in your back pocket? Think twice about doing that next time you head to the restroom because your phone is not safe in that location. Unfortunately for us, most, if not all manufacturer warranties don’t list water damage from the bathroom as a reason to give us a free replacement.

As much as we hope any dropped toilet phones survive the water damage, you now have to worry about bacteria growth on your phone case. That’s why it’s essential to get a protective case that isn’t only durable but offers anti-microbial treatments that inhibit the growth of bacteria on the case.

Almost 30% Of People Have Stood Up And Had Their Phone Fly Out Of Their Lap

The automobile has proven to be quite the nemesis of our mobile devices. We get so preoccupied with paying attention to the road or jamming out to a new song, that when we pull up to our destination, we get out the door, and we watch in terror as our phone goes flying into the parking lot and skids across the ground.

That's why it's essential to have a protective phone case with a soft, rubber exterior that allows you to get a better grip on your phone.
