Why Should You Protect Your Phone?
You might believe that phone cases are solely for the anal-retentive who want to keep their phones looking nice, but there's a lot more to it. The following are some things to consider:
Drop Protection: No matter how cautious you are, gravity will always win. In the years that you possess your phone, you'll almost certainly drop it once or twice. However, the amount of protection you require depends on your phone; many Android phones are constructed a little more challengingly and are more likely to withstand the occasional drop (I speak from personal experience). On the other hand, the iPhone 4 or 4S, while beautiful to look at, are far more likely to break when dropped, making a case for using one even more compelling.
It's also worth noting that even inexpensive cases may provide drop protection by preventing the phone from falling in the first place. A decent case may give a bit of traction to protect your phone from sliding out of your palm and onto the concrete. It's still not as nice as investing in a solid case, but it's preferable to going naked.
Even if you don't mind the occasional scratch or cracked back, there's more to your phone. For example, some phones, such as the iPhone, feature a camera lens flush with the rear, making it more susceptible to scratches and other damage, which might ruin your images. You might even damage one of your phone's buttons, making it far more challenging to operate than just a few scratches.
Even if you aren't concerned about minor scratches on your phone, many people are, and while dropping your phone without a cover won't harm it, it will leave nicks and scratches on it, lowering its resale value. On the other hand, putting a case on your phone is one of the most significant ways to get a free upgrade to your next phone—so if you sell your phones rather than retain them, a case is a good option.
What materials are phone covers made of?
Polymers such as thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), polycarbonate (PC), and silicone are commonly used to make phone covers. TPU is the most commonly used material because it provides the best blend of weight, flexibility, and durability.
To add bumpers and other protective features to a case, more rigid polymers like PC are frequently used in combination with TPU. These casings also include a variety of design alternatives, such as transparent finishes and a variety of color selections.
Silicone is ideal for phone covers due to its flexibility, durability, and soft rubbery texture. It is less likely to break than TPU or PC because it is often thinner and lighter. They also come in a variety of colors, but because of their rubbery feel, they are considerably more difficult to clean.
Phone covers contain TPU, PC, silicone, bioplastics, and premium materials such as leather and wood.
Leather can also be featured in cases, although usually as part of a hybrid design. This implies that the inside of the case is TPU, while the exterior is covered in a thin layer of leather. These casings are lovely and develop a patina with time, but the thin leather covering is easily destroyed. Keep this in mind before making a purchase.
In recent years, we've also seen more ecologically friendly materials being used in cases, such as biodegradable plastic and even wood. These are less durable than polymers and frequently last for a shorter time. However, most individuals will replace their phones every few years, and when they do, the plastic cover will be discarded. This is a strategy to reduce your environmental impact.
How to Choose the Best Phone Case
Few people better understand human quirks and foibles than smartphone repair professionals. Sure, Shakespeare is the king of sharp insights into human nature. Still, the folks who fix our phones see us at our most vulnerable—mangled gear in our hands, typically with some humiliating and illuminating error to confess.
Cupertino iPhone repair's Laxmi Agrawal and SF Smart Wireless' Sam Shoman have seen it all. A client dropped his phone in the snow and eventually discovered it in a pool of snowmelt two months later. A client's phone was run over by a vehicle, and she brought it in with tire chain markings smashed into the screen.
Their story demonstrates that, even if you've promised to be cautious, the world is full of possible digital snares, so it's best to be proactive and wrap your phone in a protective case. We spoke with two specialists who have observed some of the most horrifying smartphone horror tales, and they gave us some tips on how to avoid them.
Keep Your Phone Safe From Damage
According to Agrawal, the most prevalent problem that drives clients to repair companies is damaged glass screens. Screens are more prone to shattering if the point of impact is in a phone's corner, where the energy put on the glass is focused.
Choose a case made of a shock-absorbing substance (such as silicone or rubber) that covers your phone's susceptible corners for a basic degree of protection. However, Shoman recommends smartphone users avoid using plastic covers since they do not adequately absorb stress and are more likely to transfer any impact to the device itself.
After that, what you buy is determined by how and where you use your phone. A thin case may suffice if you're confident that your phone will only be subjected to small bumps and drops. To show off your phone's design, choose a thin transparent cover like Totallee or Peel's cases for iPhones, Google Pixel phones, and Samsung Galaxy devices.
Cases with thick, robust shells are heavier and absorb more stress. Agrawal recommends these cases for younger phone users.
How to Choose the Best Case for Your Smartphone or Tablet
A note about pricing
The best price for a case is unlikely to be found on the website of the case maker, the device manufacturer, or a carrier. RRPs (Recommended Retail Prices) are constantly being reduced. When you've found the case you're looking for, conduct a comparative search and comparison shop.
Do your research.
Examine the reviews of the cases you're interested in. Even if you can't locate a review for your exact phone model, other studies from the same manufacturer will give you a good idea of the overall quality. People can also discuss instances and upload images of them to various online communities. It is also critical to ensure that the case has exact cut-outs. When patients are hurried out the door, they may lack a port, have stiff button covers, or have issues with camera flash reflections. Finally, if wireless charging is crucial to you or you wish to dock your smartphone while wearing the case, check with the manufacturer before purchasing.
Select your options.
Consider what other features you would want in a case. For example, a landscape stand may be necessary for tablet covers. Some cases additionally include several settings and 360-degree hinges. Kickstands that spring out the rear of phones are common, but make sure they're secure because they may be bothersome if they pop out unexpectedly. Please list what you consider vital and use it as a checklist when shopping.
How much security do you require?
What kind of clumsy are you? The first thing to consider is how difficult your argument needs to be. If you want to be able to drop it on concrete and walk away unscathed, or if you want it to survive a plunge, you'll need some substantial protection. On the other hand, you don't need to spend as much money if you're cautious and only want minimal security. There is an apparent trade-off between the amount of protection offered and the additional size and weight.
Design of the iPhone 14 Pro
Apple is removing the notch from select iPhone 14 models, and speculation claims that the notchless design will be limited to the Pro variants.
Instead of a notch, Apple will use a smaller set of cuts on display. Initially, speculation suggested that Apple add a single circular hole-punch cutout to accommodate the front-facing camera, but further evidence indicates that Apple would likely add two.
The front camera will most likely be housed in the circular hole, while the Face ID hardware and other components will be housed in the pill-shaped cutout. According to pictures leaked on the Chinese social networking site Weibo, the circular cutout will be 5.631mm in diameter.
Apple may be intending to embed part of the Face ID technology behind the iPhone's display, which would reduce the size of the cuts required and leave a more accessible screen area on the front of the device, although this is not yet confirmed.
According to analysts Ross Young and Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, Apple is working on an under-display Face ID solution, although it may not be ready for usage in 2022 smartphones.
According to Barclays analysts, Apple aims to use a laser-based time-of-flight architecture for Face ID, which would allow for significant alterations to the front-facing TrueDepth camera array. At the same time, other speculations point to a unibody lens design to reduce the size of the front camera module.
A February schematic supposedly reveals the display configuration of the iPhone 14 Pro and purports to show the actual size of the two cuts that would replace the notch. However, it is unclear whether this design is correct. According to the schematics, the iPhone 14 Pro Max will measure 77.58mm broad, roughly comparable to the width of the 13 Pro Max (78.1mm). It will be 160.7mm tall, the same as the 13 Pro Max, and 7.85mm thick, only a tad wider than the iPhone 13 Pro Max, which is 7.65mm.
The camera bump will measure 4.17mm in thickness, up from 3.60mm on the iPhone 13 Pro Max. The camera bump is also predicted to grow by around 5% in each dimension, from 35.01mm to 36.73mm in width and 36.24mm to 38.21mm in height. The more significant camera bump will house the 48-megapixel camera that Apple will include with the iPhone.
The two iPhone 14 Pro versions will continue to offer 120Hz ProMotion display technology, and speculation indicates that ProMotion will remain a feature reserved for more premium iPhone models. Though some beliefs imply that 120Hz refresh rates might be implemented in all iPhone 14 models, display analyst Ross Young feels that this is unlikely due to display availability difficulties.
Apple is acquiring LTPO OLED screens for the iPhone 14 Pro variants to support 120Hz ProMotion refresh rates. Though Samsung supplied the OLED panels for Apple's iPhone 13 Pro models, the company plans to get specific screens from LG Display and BOE in 2022.
The iPhone 14 Pro models are likely to appear similar to the iPhone 13 Pro models, with the same flat-edged design, although there may be tweaks to the body design and the display improvements.
According to leaker Jon Prosser, Apple will debut a thicker chassis with no back camera hump. Instead, the lenses, LED flash, and LiDAR Scanner will purportedly sit flush with the rear glass, resulting in a non-protruding camera design not seen since the early days of the iPhone.
Along with the flush camera, the iPhone 14 versions may include circular volume buttons similar to those used on the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 models and revised speaker and microphone grilles with extended mesh cutouts rather than discrete holes at the device's bottom. However, because none of Prosser's details have been mirrored in leaked renderings, it is unclear whether the details are correct.
