December 27, 2015, 06:54 AM

When cell phones first came out, they were bulky, huge and quite possibly self-defense weapons. But now, cell phones are sleek, discreet and almost weightless.

Protective phone cases or covers have been around since cell phones transformed into pocket-sized. Made from a variety of materials, phone cases are designed to protect your phone from wear and tear, breaking and cracking. As anyone who’s had to replace their cell phone multiple times knows, cell phones drop and their screens crack at an alarmingly high rate, leading to expensive repairs or replacements. This is where a reliable phone case can be priceless.

Cell phone cases come in a variety of types, including:

  • Pouches and sleeves
  • Holsters
  • Shells
  • Skins
  • Bumpers
  • Flip cases and wallets
  • Screen protection and body films
  • Drop and shock protection

Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages. And even though most iPhone and Android users think a cell phone case is useful, there are still some cell phone users who think cases are unnecessary.

Pros of using a cell phone case

  • Protect phones from normal wear and tear
  • Protects phone from damage due to dropping, weather, water
  • Often come with warranties
  • Shows the personality of the user

Cons of using a cell phone case

  • Can be expensive
  • Can be bulky
  • May need to be replaced due to dirtying or phone upgrade

If you invest in a cell phone, why not protect it? The cost of a cell phone case is insignificant when you consider the cost of replacing a cell phone because you dropped it and the screen cracked, making it difficult or impossible to use.
