How To Find A Cute Protective Phone Case

In today's fashion-conscious world, it's not just about what you wear but also how you accessorize. You keep one accessory in particular with you at all times, but many people don’t pay attention to the image of themselves they are portraying with it. Haven’t caught on yet? We’re talking about your cell phone! There is a lot of pressure placed on us to accessorize in a way that makes us happy, but sometimes, especially on the technology front, we struggle to find the accessories that feel like us. That’s where Case-Mate’s phone accessories come in— it’s even in our mantra. We have strived for almost 20 years to create tech accessories that are ‘so you.’ 

The way you take care of your technology says a lot about you. You can wear designer brands all you want, but when you pull out your phone for a business call, to get someone’s number, or to take a group selfie— a yellowed case or chipped screen can ruin the way you want to be preserved instantly. It is becoming a common practice to style your phone like you would style yourself. Above all else, it is an extension of your personality— from what's on it to what’s in it. Fashion phone cases are more than just a way to protect your phone from scratches and damage. They are a reflection of your personality and can instantly upgrade any outfit! Whether you prefer bold and vibrant designs or sleek and minimalist styles, there is a phone case out there for everyone.

What Features To Look For In A Phone Case

Many cases are designed with added features such as card slots, kickstands, and even built-in mirrors. These functional elements make it easier to carry your essentials and enhance the usability of your phone. While these are a great addition, you should consider the basics before buying based on aesthetics. At Case-Mate, we reevaluate our top-notch drop protection each year as protective technology advances. Currently, each case for newer models starts with a 12-foot drop protection and a lifetime warranty. We know exactly how much you spent on that phone, which is why we are doing everything in our power to prolong its lifespan. 

Top 3 Features You Need In A Phone Case

  1. Drop Protection- You need at least a 12ft drop protection to shield your phone from everyday drops. Whether it falls out of your hand or down the stairs, a 12ft drop protection should prevent any damages
  2. Anti-yellowing Treatment- If you are looking for a clear phone case, you will want to search for a design that has an anti-yellowing treatment along all clear sides and backing, like the Tough Clear MagSafe Phone Case or Clear BLOX MagSafe Phone Case. While this does not completely prevent yellowing, it will prolong the aesthetic of your case by fighting against damaging UV rays.
  3. Built-in Magnets for MagSafe- This is only recommended for iPhone users, specifically from the iPhone 12 to iPhone 15, as those are the only devices with MagSafe compatibility. Cases with strong built-in magnets are meant for individuals who want to use MagSafe chargers or MagSafe accessories.

When choosing a fashion phone case with added features, make sure to consider your personal needs and preferences. Meet your needs and elevate your style— think about what features would be most useful to you and look for phone cases that offer them.
