How to Choose the Best Phone Case
Few people have a better understanding of human quirks and foibles than smartphone repair professionals. Sure, Shakespeare is the king of incisive insights into human nature, but the individuals who fix our phones see us at our most vulnerable—mangled hardware in our palms, generally confessing some embarrassing and illuminating blunder.
Even if you've promised to be careful, the world is full of potential tech nefariousness, so it's important to be proactive and secure your phone with a protective case. We spoke with two specialists who have observed some of the most terrifying smartphone horror stories, and they shared some tips on how to prevent being a victim.
Keep Your Phone Safe From Damage
Shattered glass screens are the most prevalent problem that leads customers to repair businesses. If the point of contact is in the corner of the phone, the force applied to the glass is greater and the screen is more sensitive to shattering.
Choose a case made of a shock-absorbent material like silicone or rubber that covers your phone's susceptible corners for a basic degree of protection. Smartphone users should avoid using plastic covers since they do not adequately absorb stress and are more likely to transfer any impact to the device itself.
What you buy after that is determined by how and where you use your phone. If you're certain that your phone will only be subjected to small bumps and drops, a thin case could suffice. To show off your phone's design, choose a transparent thin cover for iPhones, Google Pixel phones, and Samsung Galaxy devices.
Cases with thicker, bulkier shells are heavier and absorb more stress. These cases are recommended for younger phone users.
Phone Cases for Everyone
Water damage is less prevalent than screen damage in her experience, but she does note that aquatic incidents tend to happen over long weekends and summers when swimmers take their phones for a swim. Some iPhone covers provide waterproof, drop-tested protection that can endure unexpected dunks.
Since water resistance has become normal in the best phones, water damage has been less of a worry, but keep in mind that this form of protection does not extend to the ocean. A waterproof cover would be a smart choice if there's a chance your phone will come into contact with saltwater.
If you're always pushing your phone's battery to its limits, t here are cases that double as chargers. Folio or wallet cases can hold your phone as well as other essentials like your ID and that stamp card you always forget to bring to the ice cream shop. As an added bonus, these may provide a surprising amount of protection, as several offer full coverage around the edges and a metal clasp to keep the phone secure.
Non-iPhone users may have a harder time finding customized phone covers. Many phone case makers focus primarily on iPhones. If you have a Samsung phone, a Google Pixel, or even a OnePlus phone, you will have a lot of possibilities, but your selections will be limited after that. You should speak with a local phone repair shop about having a bespoke case made.
Is It Necessary to Use a Screen Protector?
Screen covers, which cling directly to the phone's touchscreen surface, are frequently available at phone accessories stores. Investing in tempered glass screen protectors, which deflect scratches more effectively than plastic screen protectors, is recommended by our experts.
Look for screen protectors that have a 9H hardness rating. It's the right thickness but the screen still has that high-definition clarity.
However, the amount of protection a screen protector provides against harmful impacts is limited. Adhesive screen protectors protect phones from direct assault on the touchscreen, but they don't hold up as well when the phone is hit from the sides or edges. A case should be used in conjunction with a tempered glass screen protector.
Choosing the Right Case
You'll want to choose a color and pattern that complements your personality, but there are a few additional factors to consider. Think about how the case will feel in your hands. To improve grip, several cases include ridged sides or unique coatings. After all, the best way to avoid dropping your phone is to avoid it in the first place. Do you want to watch movies with your phone propped up in landscape mode on a kickstand? If you have a current iPhone, how about MagSafe compatibility?
Be wary of button coverings that are too stiff or cutouts that are too big. The port and camera lens openings should be large enough to avoid causing problems when using your phone. Wireless charging can be hampered by thicker, more robust casings. If you can't sample a case before buying it, look for reviews online or contact the maker.
Plastic, mainly polycarbonate, TPU, or a combination of the two, is the most frequent material used for phone cases. What happens, though, when you replace your phone in a few years? That case will very certainly join the rising stream of plastic garbage and outlast you. There are biodegradable plastic phone covers, but if you're concerned about plastic's environmental effects, you might want to choose a different material such as sustainable wood.
Reasons to Buy a New Phone Case
Phone cases, like any other goods, deteriorate over time. Dropping your iPhone on a frequent basis while wearing a case can only provide so much protection. Although the device is secure, the case is subject to damage. They are easily cracked and broken. This compromises the phone's security and is a cause for concern. If you replace your phone cases on a regular basis, you may rest easy knowing that your phone is well-protected.
Boost your investments.
If your phone cover is out of date, you may be missing out on important advances. Nowadays, a phone cover can be so much more. It might be anything from a wallet to a wine opener to a phone stand to a Taser. Shopping for a new one is a terrific chance to investigate all of your alternatives and try something new.
It is best to avoid scuffs.
Depending on the sort of protection you already have, you may or may not have full coverage. This is especially true for screens. Gorilla Glass is often used for phone screens because it can withstand minor slips and falls. Even if you don't drop your phone frequently, you put it in situations where scratches are unavoidable.
If you often carry your phone in a handbag or pocket, it is probable that it will become scratched. A new case may also protect the screen. If not, now is a great opportunity to hunt for one that is screen protector compatible. Whichever case you select, you should take steps to keep the screen from becoming scratched.
Get a Glimpse of It
Smartphones are attractive, alluring, and polished. The design is light and thin, which affects the product's durability. Today's phones are not the long-lasting Nokias of yesteryear! As a result, 2020 may be recognized as the year of the mid-range smartphone. Apple's $399 iPhone SE is our highest-rated non-flagship model in a long time, and we expect a dozen or more similarly priced devices to hit US carriers this year. The Samsung Galaxy A51 has a starting price of $399.99. Because of its appealing appearance, long battery life, good camera quality, and spectacular display, it offers outstanding value for money. In terms of raw power, though, it falls short of the iPhone SE.
Design, Display, and Longevity
Simply put, the Galaxy A51 looks excellent. It has dimensions of 6.24 by 2.90 by 0.31 inches (HWD) and weighs 6.06 ounces. It's light and thin enough to be held and used with one hand without difficulty. In the United States, it is offered in black with an appealing prismatic finish. Blue and white variations are also available in various regions of the world.
The phone's front is dominated by a nearly bezel-less 6.5-inch AMOLED display with a 20:9 aspect ratio and a tiny hole for the front-facing camera. The resolution is 2,400 by 1,080, which results in a greater pixel density (405ppi) than the iPhone SE (326ppi). Colors are bright and warm by default, but you may change them in the options menu to your taste. The display is bright and clear, and you won't have any trouble viewing it in direct sunlight.
There's also an optical fingerprint sensor in the display, although it's not very good. It only functioned properly around 40% of the time when used on a regular basis. If you're not too concerned about security, I'd recommend using the face recognition option to unlock the phone instead.
In the upper left corner of the phone's back is a broad rectangular camera stack. Unlike flagship versions made of glass or metal, the A51's rear panel is constructed of strong plastic with a glass-like appearance, which you probably wouldn't notice unless you looked closely. Having said that, it was coated with fingerprints within minutes of removing the phone from the box.
The A51's top edge is naked, while the bottom houses a headphone jack, a USB-C connector, and a speaker. The hybrid SIM/microSD slot is on the left side, while the power and volume controls are on the right. If you have small hands, you may need to struggle with the volume rocker.
While the new iPhone SE has an IP67 rating, the A51 does not have the same rigorous durability promise. While the plastic rear panel is likely to endure an accidental drop without significant damage, the display is constructed of Gorilla Glass 3, an older, more fragile toughened glass that resists scratches but not hard drops. Putting the phone in a decent case is your best chance.
Audio, call, and network quality are all important considerations.
The network's speeds are consistent. On Verizon, we measured average download and upload speeds of 76.9Mbps and 14.6Mbps, respectively.
The call quality is outstanding. The maximum earphone level is 84dB, which is loud enough to be heard on a crowded street. Even while using the phone in a location with noisy construction, our test calls were clear and the noise cancelling performed nicely.
Other than that, the audio quality is adequate. The maximum volume is 88 dB, which is loud enough to fill an entire room. At higher levels, the timbre is weak, with evident clipping. The bass is non-existent, and the treble is patchy. In short, it's OK for a conference call or scrolling through TikTok videos, but if your plans involve a Netflix marathon, you'll want to use the 3.5mm headphone port.
The A51 offers dual-band Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth 5.0 for wearable connectivity. NFC is also available for mobile payments and boarding cards.
The Galaxy A51 comes with a solid camera setup. There are four sensors on the rear of the phone: a 48MP wide-angle lens with an f/2.0 aperture, a 12MP ultrawide lens with an f/2.2 aperture, a 5MP depth lens with an f/2.2 aperture, and another 5MP macro lens with an f/2.4 aperture.
During daytime testing, virtually all of our images appeared sharp and had a good depth of field. Colors are little oversaturated across the board, but this is typical of Samsung phones. Close inspection revealed some small edge distortion with the ultrawide lens, although it's not noticeable with the naked eye.
The A51 also performs admirably in low light. In numerous low-light conditions, I tested the wide and ultrawide sensors, and while there was some edge noise and minimal loss of fine detail, the photographs still had an outstanding depth of field and no light flares.
A 32MP wide-angle lens with an f/2.2 aperture is located on the front of the device. In most lighting conditions, the selfie camera performs admirably. In good lighting, the test images seemed clear and accurate in terms of color. In a few images, the wide-angle option caused some edge blurring, but not consistently.
Specifications and Performance
The Exynos 9611 CPU and 4GB of RAM are standard in the Galaxy A51. There is 128GB of storage accessible, with 105GB available right now. With the use of a microSD card, it may add up to 512GB of storage.
When compared to the similarly priced iPhone SE, Google Pixel 3a and even the $249 Moto G Power, performance is on the sluggish side. Apps and websites took a little longer to load than expected, and we observed some caching when we had more than a dozen apps open at the same time.
Unfortunately, gaming is equally disappointing, but a Game Booster option appears to make things go a bit faster. During our testing, we found that Asphalt 9 had slow load times and that PUBG: Mobile crashed twice. If Candy Crush or Bejeweled is more your pace, the A51 will suffice.
Benchmark testing backs up our intuitive usage. The A51 scored 5,429 on PCMark 2.0 Work, a battery of tests that simulate normal smartphone operations, lagging the Moto G Power (6,751) and the Pixel 3a (7,378).

The A51 received scores of 347 (single-core) and 1,340 (multi-core) on Geekbech 5, a test that evaluates raw processing power (multi-core). In comparison, the Moto G Power received 310 SC and 1,289 MC, while the iPhone SE received 1,331 SC and 3,299 MC.
The Galaxy A51 is powered by a 4,00mAh battery, which is more than enough to get you through the day. The phone lasted 11 hours and 29 minutes in our battery drain test, which streams HD movies over Wi-Fi at maximum brightness. A 15W charger is included, and the quick charging option may be enabled in the settings menu. It does not allow wireless charging, unlike the iPhone SE.
