Best Mobile Phone Covers, Cases in 2017

One of the mistakes too many people make when buying a smart phone case is not looking at the make and models of phones it literally fits. Yes, all smart phones are about the size of one’s hand. But if you buy a case made for a smaller smart phone, it won’t fit a larger phone. And buying a smart phone case branded for iPhone, HTC, Huawei, Nokia or other smart phones isn’t good enough. For example, the phone cases that fit the iPhone 6 and 6S won’t offer adequate protection for the iPhone 5 if it fits at all. A smart phone case for one model of phone may not have holes where the charging ports, headphone plugs and other critical access points are located, and you don’t want to cut holes in the smart phone cover to access these ports. Sometimes the holes line up, but the holes in the case don’t fit your hardware. This is seen even with iPhone cases that have holes for the charging ports that fit Apple’s proprietary hardware but not any third party peripherals. Read the reviews to see if that is the case before you buy a particular smart phone case.

The Literal Fit and Phone Models

Another issue to take into account is whether or not the case covers power buttons or other controls. If the case covers those buttons on your phone, find out if the controls are still easily manipulated. User reviews are a better indicator of this than manufacturer’s product descriptions.Impact ProtectionImpact protection is the primary purpose of most smart phone cases. You know that smart phone cases that meet various military standards or MIL-STD for short meet the highest military standards. ISO and ANSI standards for impact protection are almost as good as military standards. A smart phone doesn’t have to meet military or industry standards for impact protection, but if it doesn’t protect the phone from needing repairs after falling off the table, you shouldn’t buy the smart phone. Be careful of the industrial standards listed in product descriptions. Some companies will cite industry standards regarding material quality or minor fall tests, when it is the ability of the case to protect the phone if it lands screen down or on its corner that are the most important. Conversely, patent pending is promoted as important by many smart phone case manufacturers but it actually doesn’t matter. You can file for a patent for something that isn’t patentable, and patents on novel designs doesn’t meet it protects the phone better or protects it at all. Case material matters only to the degree that it helps the phone case do its job. Cutting edge materials don’t matter. That said, rubberized plastic and silicone foams are the most common ones. Regardless of material, you want a soft inner layer at a minimum to provide impact protection for the phone. A harder outer layer provides scratch protection that soft shock absorbent layers rarely do. Carbon fiber outer layers are the most expensive material used for this purpose, but lower cost options like polycarbonate work almost as well. CostPremium brands are almost never worth the cost. Getting a luxury brand logo on your iPhone case, for example, is almost a redundant waste of money since you’ve already paid a fortune for the iPhone itself. CustomizationCustomization is held up as a key deciding factor for smart phone cases, but it shouldn’t be. Yes, it is nice to have mobile phone cases and covers that look good, but that ceases to matter after the first bill comes for repairing a cracked screen or damaged port. And you can buy dull gun metal or white case and decorate it with skins.Waterproofing Waterproofing is valuable only if it matters to you. If you’ve ruined more than one phone dropping it in a puddle while biking outside or in the toilet, then you should consider a smart phone case that is water proof.

Tudia Slim Fit Case Review

This Tudia slim fit case is designed to fit the

Huawei Honor 6X smart phone

. The dual layer design protects your phone from all conceivable threats. The heavy duty polycarbonate case protects it from casual liquid spills while the rubberized gel skin fits to the form of the phone, preventing debris and liquid from reaching the phone itself. The polyurethane interior absorbs the shock of impact so that the phone screen isn’t cracked by the stress of hitting the ground. The design has precision cutouts for all buttons, controls and ports. You’ll be able to take pictures, plug in a headset or toggle buttons without the case getting in the way. You don’t have to take the phone out of the case in order to charge it, so the Tuda slim fit case prevents the classic horror story of the phone getting broken when it falls off the stand when you try to pick it up from the charger. This is essential since the Honor 6Xphone has a reputation for being fragile. The phone has a raised lip around the screen so that it isn’t scratched or stained when you lay the phone face down on the table. And its design allows you to use almost any screen protector, though it works quite well with the tempered glass screen protectors the same manufacturer sells. The snap on design makes it easy to assemble around your phone. The hard polycarbonate exterior and form-fitting TPU interior layers create an easy to grip, sleek protective shell around the phone. The phone protector itself weighs less than one ounce, so it won’t weigh you down. It comes in several different colors. Matte black is the most popular and commonly available, but it can be found in rose gold, mint (a blue-green color) and metallic gray. The case itself is resistant to scratches and scuffing. One minor annoyance for some users is how sleek and almost slippery the case itself is, making it slippery if your hands are sweaty. You can put an adhesive grip on the case to reduce this issue. Not everyone sees this as a problem. A benefit of the one piece design of the Tudia brand Honor 6X case is that the back plate never pops off when the phone hits the floor. This issue sometimes allows the phone to survive initial impact before falling out of the case, unprotected, onto the floor and breaking. The case is sturdy in pretty much all conditions. This heavy duty slim fit phone case is cheaper than equally protective brands like Otterbox or Rhino, though it is lighter than they are. And it protects the Honor 6X phone without adding a lot of bulk, being millimeters thinner than some of its rivals. Consider the Tudia brand slim fit, heavy duty phone case an investment in protecting your Honor 6X phone. It costs far less than the price of fixing a cracked screen, and it lets you use screen protectors and any other protective measures you’d like. And you get all of this at a very reasonable price.
