Mobile Phone Accessories Buying Guide

Mobile phones these days are more fragile than the Nokias of yesteryear. Bumps and falls could be fatal, while repairs for any damage could be costly. That’s why accessories such as a phone cover and screen guard are essential to protect your phone. In addition to shielding your device, phone cases also reflect your personality. Read on to find out what to look for.

Phone Cases

There are different types of phone cases available, including slim/skin, folio/wallet, rugged/tough, flip and arm band. Each of these has different features, so select the one that best suits your needs, style and budget. Consider what you want to protect your phone from, including cracks, drops and water immersion, and ensure that the case provides the required level of protection.

Slim / shell phone cases

These basic cases are popular as they are widely available and cheap. They cover the sides and back of the phone and are usually made of plastic, rubber or silicone. They provide varying levels of protection against impact, but they’re not very durable and they aren’t waterproof. The huge range available means you can easily find one that suits your style.

Flip phone cases

This type of case has a flip cover which you can bend, allowing it to act as a stand for your phone. This is a handy feature if you use your phone to watch videos.

Folio / wallet phone cases

These stylish phone cases cover both the back and front of your phone. Some have slots on the inside where you can store cards, money and other essentials, acting as a wallet. These are typically made from fake or real leather. Some feature a hard shell case on the inside for even better protection.

Rugged / tough phone cases

As the name suggests, these phone cases provide serious protection. They’re made of hard rubber or tough plastic designed to withstand rough treatment, falls and extreme elements. These cases are extremely durable, but can be bulky and expensive.

Arm bands

These strap to your arm and are great for when you’re at the gym, out exercising or just want a hands-free way to carry your mobile phone. These vary in terms of comfort, durability and resistance to water and damage.

Screen Protectors

Screen protectors or screen guards sit on your phone screen and protect it from scratches and other damage. There are two kinds to select from: plastic and tempered glass.

Plastic screen protectors

These clear sheets of plastic are the most basic and affordable kind. These provide protection against dust, dirt and scratches, but not impact.

Tempered glass screen protectors

These resist scratches, reduce glare and are anti-reflective for optical clarity. They also absorb impact, so if your phone falls, chances are your phone screen will remain undamaged even if the glass protector shatters.

Shop by Phone Models

There’s no one-size-fits-all phone case or screen protector. Phones come in various sizes, so select accessories that are specifically designed to fit your phone model.
