If the September notice on your calendar is making you want to bust out your cardigans and start bundling up for the impending fall weather, then why not give your phone the same treatment? With more rainy and cold weather on the horizon, there are more opportunities for a slip of the hand, and a consequent crack of a screen. So we’ve put together an easy guide for the best phone cases for your particular needs:
You’ve probably heard of Otterbox by now, and if you haven’t, then simply put, it’s one of the most reputable brands when it comes to phone cases that are strong and durable. One of their drawbacks, however, is that they tend to be bulky and heavy, making it harder to fit into narrow pockets, and more importantly—onto your hand. But their Symmetry Series was created to combat just that, with a slimmer fit that still protects all your phone’s edges.
If you’re looking for a strong case with a little more personality, though, consider also looking at Casetify. They offer protection first, but make it fun with unique prints, and even an online lab where you can customize your own phone case!
Phone cases, especially if you’re switching them out often, can be incredibly wasteful. Which is why companies like Pela Case came up with the first compostable phone case. That’s right—when you’re done with it, you can simply throw it in your compost, or even just on the ground, where it will eventually return to earth. And don’t worry, they offer cases for a variety of both iPhone and Android models, so you won’t be left behind.
If staying on a budget is your main priority, then Spigen is your go-to. With a variety of cases ranging from $15-$55, you are bound to find the right phone case for your phone model at the right price for your monthly balance. And do not fret, a lower price point does not mean you compromise on protection, so you can wave your phone around with minimal worry (but you probably shouldn’t).
