So you just brought home your cool new Smartphone; perhaps it’s an iPhone or a Samsung with its new Super AMOLED touch screen. In short, you have an investment. One of the easiest ways to protect your several-hundred dollar purchase is to buy it a case.
Within a month of getting a new BlackBerry Bold, this author dropped it on a hardwood floor. The brightness never seemed the same. Within two months of getting his new Galaxy NEXUS Smartphone, he dropped it while running on concrete. That time, however, he had it protected in an OtterBox case.
OtterBox lived up to its claim: on impact, the case came apart, ensuring it, and not the phone, absorbed the impact. This happened a second time in a hallway, and the same happy outcome ensued.
Whether OtterBox or some other case, an investment of perhaps a tenth or less of your phone may one day pay off large dividends. While you may bemoan that you can’t touch your screen again, or feel its sleekly smooth finish, you’ll be laughing this side of the way to the bank the first time the case protects your valuable investment.
