Is an Expensive Phone Case Really Worth the Money?

Smartphones /

Otterboxes and other sturdy cases are often touted as a necessary evil if you want to protect your phone from the perils of day-to-day life. But are these phones really worth it, and what else can you do to protect your device?

Expensive Cases and Damage Protection

Most people do attest to the fact that more expensive cases can actually help to protect your device from getting broken or cracked. Those cases that offer water protection and shock protection don’t mess around; Otterboxes and other more expensive options can protect your phone if it is dropped in a swimming pool, if it lands on the concrete, and (often) even if it gets run over by a car. These are the reasons many people swear by these cases.

When Don’t I Need an Expensive Case?

However, these instances can seem crazy if you’re the kind of person who takes very good care of your phone. Some individuals are more accident-prone, which we have seen with our own eyes, but others have had smartphones for years and have never experienced an issue like those above. In this case, you may not need one of these more expensive options.

In addition, if you do not work outside or are unlikely to deal with lots of dirt, debris, and other junk getting on and around your phone, you may want to pass on the option of an expensive case. These are usually most effective for individuals who deal with lots of dangerous situations or who are likely to damage their phone on a day-to-day basis.

Do I Need an Expensive Phone Case?

The worth of an expensive case really comes down to you. While Otterboxes are well known for doing everything they say they will and for protecting phones against almost any issue, not everyone needs this kind of intense protection for such a high price. The best decision you can make is based on your own habits and whether your device is likely to be in danger more often than not.
