Comparison / 23 smartphone cases tested January 2022 By Kevin Hiot (@Niveekk) Updated 14/04/20 07:00 AM Share:

Current smartphones are both more and more efficient and real aesthetic objects. Even if they ultimately tend to all look alike, some manufacturers use premium materials to stand out from the competition. But they are all the more fragile, and they must therefore be protected from possible falls. And for that, what better than a case to protect your everyday partner.





When you buy a new smartphone, you want to protect it, even overprotect it. For this, the most viable option remains the purchase of a protective shell. On the current market, there are a large number of them with multiple characteristics: leather, reinforced, silicone, gadget, whimsical... In short, the choice is more than wide and it is often complicated to find your way around.

How to choose the right phone case?

It's not really rocket science, but first of all you have to know and identify your needs. As said before, there are lots of different protective cases, and it can sometimes be difficult to find which one will best match your phone. Ideally, the latter should protect your precious mobile from occasional falls. But it would be a shame if its function were limited to a single use. In fact, it is rather necessary to aim for a shell favoring flexible or solid materials, such as silicone or plastic.

Then, there are two schools: those who prefer a thin shell and those who prefer to use great means and opt for maximum protection with very thick shells to withstand any disaster. A thin shell, generally around 1 mm thick, marries the main aesthetics of the smartphone and therefore does not completely distort the grip. While a thicker shell will really change the way you handle your mobile. These shells adopt different templates which thus modify the appearance of the smartphone. If you don't give much credit to the aesthetics of the smartphone, head for these models.


Finally, take a good look at the type of protection offered by each cover. Some cases may not fully cover all parts of the smartphone or they may not sufficiently protect the screen or the photographic sensors. With an integral shell, you will be assured that during an impact on one side, the latter will suffer only a minimum of damage. And if ever the hull rises a little above the surface of the screen, a glass breakage can be avoided if your phone falls with the display facing the ground. A word of advice if your mobile is compatible: check that the installation of a protective shell does not interfere with the use of wireless charging. Most hulls do not prevent this, but if you want to opt for a very thick model, it may limit the use of this type of load.
