4 Things to Look for in the Best Phone Cases

With the new iPhone models starting at $699, it would be crazy not to seek the best in a phone case. Even if you're not jumping on the Apple bandwagon every time a new iPhone model comes out, your phone is your link to the rest of the world, and you're going to want to protect it. Luckily, there are tons of great cases out there to fit just about any need and desired aesthetic. Not sure exactly what you're looking for? Here are our top four things to look for when shopping for phone cases:

1. Drop Protection

This is usually the most important factor for anyone buying a phone case. Depending on how accident-prone you are, or the kind of environment you'll be using your phone in, there are varying levels of protection offered from a case. If you're someone who is generally careful, and you're not too worried about dropping it, a thinner case that adds style to your phone without much bulk could be a good option. On the other hand, if you're someone who has kids using the device or is just plain clumsy, a more rugged case that offers full protection is probably a better option for you. All in all, there's generally going to be a tradeoff between sleek and lightweight minimal protection and a little bulkier and heavier but more protection.

2. Waterproof

Another option to consider when you're thinking about protection is waterproofing your phone. Though a lot of phones on the market today are considered "water resistant" this doesn't necessarily protect from the potential for water damage. The main takeaway here is that a phone being water resistant isn't the same thing as being waterproof. If you plan on exposing your phone to the elements, a case that can provide a truly waterproof barrier will be your best bet for preventing damage.

3. Wallet Phone Cases

If you're someone who doesn't want to carry more than you need to in your pockets, a folio or wallet case is a great multitasking option. These cases offer varying levels of storage for things like credit cards and IDs. A folio case is especially good for keeping your screen scratch free when you toss it in your bag or pocket with keys and other potentially abrasive materials. You can find these cases in both leather and vegan leather variations and endless colors and styles.

4. Extra Battery Power

There's nothing worse than your phone dying in the middle of a busy day, but thankfully there are phone cases available to help keep that from happening. Cases that offer a built-in battery pack tend to be on the bulkier side, but you get the benefit of having a much longer battery life. Most battery cases offer roughly a full charge's worth of battery power, which should be more than enough to get you through the day.
