How many times have you
purchased a newphone because your
old one broke from a fall?
A decade ago, mobile phones
were very sturdy. They had designs
that prevented accidental drops from
destroying your phone. With the rise of smartphones,
companies traded durability for a larger screen, thinner design, and lighter
To keep your phone alive, you
need a few things.
While this may seem obvious,
you should not see casing as
accessory – but rather an essential part
of the phone. It can give you a second
chance in case you drop your phone. A good case provides you with added
padding to protect it against fall damage. The case also adds the bonus of
making the phone less slippery while
holding it – decreasing the chances of you dropping it.
A phone ring is another
accessory that you may want to add immediately after getting a phone. As the
name implies, it adds a ring for your finger at the back of your mobile. This
gives you a better grip while holding your device. For those with smaller hands, it can also be a way to
hold your phones more securely. Outside your hands, the ring can also act as a kickstand for your phone, giving them
the ability to stay upright.
A Durable Design
If you want a phone that can
survive a fall, several brands offer their own take. The Cat S61 is a great
example of a rugged phone. Created
by Caterpillar (the construction
supplies brand); the S61 offers supreme protection against falls. Other phones
such as the AGM X3, Sonim XP8, and many more offer rugged exteriors.
These models were built with
toughness in mind, which means these phones would be heavier than normal. Nevertheless,
if it keeps your phone alive longer, what is there to complain, right?
