How to Choose the Best Phone Case
If you've ever stood in front of a wall of phone cases, you know how difficult it is to choose the perfect case for you. It's easy to become lost in a sea of glistening hues, exotic designs, and crazy patterns when there are so many alternatives. Don't worry, we're here to assist you.
Before you even consider the style to choose, you need to consider why you require a phone case. Although the aim may appear to be self-evident, instances come with a wide range of intents and criteria.
Some cases now come with waterproof protection, while others may be used as portable charging docks or wallets with credit card slots. It might be complicated with so many possibilities available, but before you start looking at cases, identify what you need the cash for to help guide your decision.
In practice, a phone cover protects the pricey phone underneath it, but not all cases offer the same amount of protection. Some cases provide more substantial protection in the front, while others choose to add extra strength in the rear. Others prefer the superior, but larger, all-around defense.
In general, the larger the phone case, the better the protection. Although this rule does not apply to high-end cases, better protection usually comes in the form of thicker protection.
Consider what amount of protection you require. Do you operate in a hazardous area, such as a construction zone, where your case might be jeopardized? Or are you regarded as a "phone breaker" because of your proclivity for mishaps? The level of protection you require depends on your lifestyle and work environment.
One of the most crucial elements to consider for many people is the design style of a phone case. However, choosing a case style is more difficult than choosing a piece of clothing that you just wear once in a while. A phone cover is always with you and says a lot about the person who owns it, so it's critical to get it properly.
Choose a design that you believe will resonate with you for a long time. Otherwise, you'll be back in the shop with the same problem the following week.
The way the phone feels in your hands with the new case is something that many people overlook or entirely forget about. Do you find it pleasant to hold the phone? Do you have any trouble pressing any of the side buttons? Is there a decent grip on both sides of the case?
The feel is also influenced by the substance. Rubber and silicone are the most gripping materials. Some companies, such as Apple, have begun to use innovative flexible materials such as liquid silicone, which have a soft feel yet provide outstanding grip.
Choosing a new phone is an important decision that should be carefully considered. A decent quality case that you like will last you a long time, so it's worth taking your time when selecting a decision.
3 suggestions for cleaning a yellow-colored phone
Tip 1: Clean with dish soap
To begin with, try cleaning the phone case with dish soap. The following is a basic cleaning solution with instructions:
- Combine one cup of warm water (about 240 ml) and a few drops of dish soap in a mixing bowl.
- Combine the ingredients in a mixing bowl.
- Scrub the solution all over the phone case with a toothbrush.
- Clean the inside and outside of the house, getting into all the nooks and crannies.
- Rinse it and dry it with a soft towel.
Before placing it back on your phone, let it air dry for at least an hour to ensure it's totally dry. Repeat this method on a weekly basis to remove extra oils and chemicals that can deteriorate the material in your phone cover.
Tip 2: Clean with baking soda.
Baking soda may remove a variety of stains, but it cannot guarantee that it will remove all of them.
Begin by sprinkling baking soda on the phone case's surface. After that, massage the baking soda into the stain with a moist toothbrush. Rinse the baking soda and pat it dry with a soft towel.
To get rid of any leftover baking soda, repeat the process with suggestion number one.
Tip 3: Use alcohol rubbing to disinfect.
Disinfecting your phone on a regular basis is a healthy habit to develop. It's also a good way to keep your phone cover from turning yellow.
To coat the phone case, use a spray bottle of rubbing alcohol or a soft cloth soaked in alcohol. Remove the phone case with a clean, dry towel once it has been covered.
Allow an hour for it to air dry before replacing it on your phone. Even if it doesn't get rid of the discoloration, it will be bacteria-free and more sanitary.
The iPhone 13 mini illustrates that you don't need a large phone to have a lot of power. While it's smaller than almost every other phone on the market today, it still has some of the greatest cameras and performance.
You won't get some of Apple's pro-level features, such as a 120Hz refresh rate or a telephoto camera, but you'll get the same experience as the standard iPhone 13, including the mighty A15 Bionic processor, a top-quality (albeit smaller) display, and all of the new iOS features, such as Cinematic mode.
We'll see how the greatest little phone in the world compares to its predecessor and the competition in this iPhone 13 mini-review. Also see our iPhone 13 Pro Max review, iPhone 13 Pro review, and iPhone 13 review.
The iPhone 13 mini's price and release date
The iPhone 13 mini is currently available for purchase. The 128GB model costs $699, with the 256GB variant costing $799 and the 512GB model costing $999. Yes, Apple increased the basic storage capacity while keeping the pricing constant this year. The iPhone 13 mini for $699 is a terrific price when you consider all of the power it has under the hood.
The iPhone 13 small starts at £679 in the UK, with the 256GB model costing £779 and the 512GB variant costing a hefty £979.

However, you may opt to wait another year for the iPhone 14 before upgrading from your existing Apple phone. If so, take a look at the seven most significant enhancements we expect from the iPhone 14.
Design of the iPhone 13 mini
With the exception of the notch, the iPhone 13 appears to be nearly identical to its predecessor.According to Apple, it's around 20% smaller this year, and the difference is evident. Even if the notch remains, it's good to have extra screen real estate.
The iPhone 13 mini has the same squared-off corners, and despite its small size, it is still comfortably pocketable, and I was able to operate it with one hand. All iPhone 13 versions are IP68-certified, which means the 13 mini can withstand being submerged for 30 minutes at a depth of six meters.
I'm upset that the iPhone 13 mini lacks mask-friendly authentication. Face ID has not been adapted by Apple to the mask life that many of us still live. I'd want to see Apple improve Face ID or introduce Touch ID in the future.
Display on the iPhone 13 mini
The 5.4-inch OLED display on the iPhone 13 mini is mostly identical to last year, but there is a significant increase in brightness.
Thanks to the OLED display, colors are bright and brilliant, with realistic, deep blacks. I was amazed at how effectively the phone displayed the vivid color pallet when playing Genshin Impact (an intriguing experience on such a small phone). With a rich contrast between the orange fog and the shadows, the iPhone 13 mini captured the scene of Blade Runner 2049's third act effectively.
In comparison to the iPhone 12 small and the Galaxy S21, the iPhone 13 mini performs admirably, with slightly higher saturation than Samsung's phone. The Delta-E color accuracy score, which ranges from 0 to 1, gives the S21 a tiny advantage.
The iPhone 13 small gets sufficiently bright enough to see outside, with a maximum brightness of 788 nits in our tests. This is particularly useful for photography, since it allows you to see the photographs you made even while you're standing in bright sunshine.
Cameras on the iPhone 13 mini
This year, the iPhone 13 mini received significant camera enhancements. The main 12MP camera features a bigger sensor that lets more light in, resulting in better shots in low-light situations. Apple also incorporated sensor-shift optical picture stabilization on the iPhone 12 Pro Max. This should make things even more stable than they are with regular OIS.
The 12MP ultrawide camera has a bigger sensor as well. There's also autofocus on board now, which may make a considerable difference in the sharpness of ultrawide images.
The phones had to catch the blue seats, brilliant red door, white wall, and hazy sky beyond in this first outside photo. The image on the iPhone 13 mini is substantially richer, with brighter colors and a greater feeling of depth. In comparison, the Galaxy S21 appears washed out and flat. Aside from that, the two photographs are very similar, albeit I believe the iPhone's is more lifelike.
The same thing happened in this shot of flowers on a tree. The iPhone managed to capture a more vivid image without oversaturating it. The weathered blue wall on the left and the orange umbrella in the backdrop appear to be real. The S21, as is typical of Samsung, had some oversaturation issues, but it also battled with sunshine where the iPhone did not—the S21's image exhibits some lens flare.
As we entered the building, the iPhone 13 mini recorded this sight well. It was able to manage both natural and artificial light while keeping the contrast and shadows. The ambiance and tone of the space are captured in this shot, which has an artistic feel to it. In addition, the Galaxy S21 provided a brighter image than the iPhone. However, it over-boosted the highlights, resulting in a loss of contrast. The finished image seems a little flat, and while it is brighter, it is not what I saw in that room.
Both phones are practically identical in this second indoor photograph. The iPhone image is somewhat warmer, while the S21 image is significantly brighter. The ambiance of this scenario was captured on both phones, with a great focus on the tree adornment. The red of the books up above in the S21's photograph, on the other hand, appears washed out, but they are a vivid red in the iPhone's image.
In terms of portraiture, both phones are really comparable. To match the lighting that day, the iPhone 13 mini chose a somewhat warmer tone, while the Galaxy S21 toned things down and brightened the final image. Not only does the green in the iPhone photo appear to be more vibrant, but the orange automobile behind me also appears to be more prominent. The identical automobile appears faded in the S21's picture. Even though the S21 applied too much facial smoothing, both phones attained near-perfect blur radii.
Check out this awesome vintage Beetle junk heap for the ultrawide test. The iPhone's shot has a little crispier focus than the S21's. It's hard not to notice the color difference between the iPhone and the S21, with the iPhone seeming richer and the S21 looking washed out. In the iPhone photo, the yellow beetle appears to be a little more vibrant, but in the S21 photo, it appears to be a little too faded. This all comes back to what I said in the last section about the outdoors.
As you can see, night mode was rather intriguing. The Galaxy S21 took a significantly brighter shot of this smoker in the dead of night than the iPhone 13 mini. Not only is the smoker in sharper focus with more features, but the fence slats in the distance are also more visible. Given how wonderful Apple's Night mode is generally, I was expecting a lot more from the iPhone.
Finally, the two phones took two quite different methods when it comes to front-facing camera comparisons. The iPhone 13 mini chose a softer, warmer tone, bringing out the reds in my face and the reds on my clothing behind me. The Galaxy S21 substantially brightened and cooled everything down, brightening my eyes but also adding too much facial smoothing.
