There are several products available to protect your smartphone against shocks:
Cases, bumpers or covers protect the external structure.
Protective films protect the screen.
There are also indicators giving a more precise idea of the resistance:
The IP standard indicates dust and water tightness.
Special smartphones for shock resistance.
Today, most people own a smartphone. A true revolution of the last ten years, these condensed technologies are as powerful as they are fragile. In order to promote their longevity, it is, therefore, necessary to protect them with products that meet specific characteristics. And to protect these objects, which have become almost indispensable to a large number of consumers, there is no shortage of solutions.
In order to meet everyone's requirements, each type of protection meets different needs. And if security is the main objective of the protection, the design is not abandoned for all that. Quite the opposite.
A protection for your phone, what for?
More and more, mobile phones are becoming technological monsters. In their quest for ever-greater performance, manufacturers are constantly developing their products to meet our growing needs. In fact, the versatility of these devices has become their main characteristic. Originally intended to provide mobile communication, the vocation of mobile phones has now changed. So much so that the functions of these mobiles are now multiple. This is what has led to the evolution of the name of these terminals. Simple mobile phones have indeed evolved, now being called smartphones.
The versatility of smartphones is not their only feature. They're a phone, game console, music player, camera, and storage source, but they're also cost-effective. While entry-level smartphones are generally available for less than 200 euros, the top-of-the-line models are much more expensive.
The latter can now reach more than 1,000 euros. In view of the investment involved, these items, therefore, require special attention. Especially since these smartphones have become very widespread. Among the working population, on the one hand, but also among the oldest and youngest. The clumsiness of some or the inattention of others is often responsible for falls. To avoid disasters and protect these devices, various means are available.
The case and the bumper, essential elements to protect your smartphone
As with any high-tech product, one of the main elements to be protected is the hull. Preserving the external appearance of the product effectively protects the internal components and thus promotes the smooth operation of the machine. In this case, many alternatives have been developed to protect smartphones.
Cases: effective depending on the design material used
On the one hand, we find the classic hulls. The latter are usually designed so that they cover the back of the smartphone. The covers are divided into several categories, which are mainly distinguished by their composition. For example, there are soft shells as well as more rigid models.
To make these different shells, it is customary to use materials such as :
Silicone: by its composition and flexibility, it offers the advantage of absorbing shocks to a certain extent. Thanks to the adaptability of this material, silicone shells are relatively easy to put on and take off.
Polyurethane is also often used. Slightly stiffer, it offers a good compromise between the flexibility of silicone and the rigidity of plexiglass.
Plexiglass, in fact, offers thinner shells. These only slightly modify the grip of the device. However, the rigidity of these shells is also a disadvantage in that shocks can be fatal. It is indeed frequent that this type of shell breaks in case of a fall.
Leather and fabric: for the fabric, protection will be almost non-existent. For leather, the thickness of the material will protect the smartphone more, but the protection will not be ideal.
These different materials have their own properties and tend to offer different results. Each person is then able to choose the type of protection that suits him or her.
Bumpers: the best way to protect your phone
While the shells cover the back of smartphones, the bumper simply covers the contours of the device. However, this protection seems to be generally sufficient. In the majority of cases, the impacts suffered during a fall by the phones are actually at the corners. By simply protecting the contours of the device, the bumper provides protection that is suitable for the majority of accidents.
This type of protection, made of semi-rigid gel, not only protects the device but also does not obscure its design. For premium smartphones, it can, therefore, be a relevant alternative, as consumers place so much importance on aesthetics. However, the bumper does not protect the display or the rear panel from scratches.
Ultra-resistant smartphones, a category of mobiles in their own right
As mentioned above through various examples, there are many alternatives available to consumers in terms of protection. However, in spite of these specially adapted solutions, some people are unable to preserve their smartphones. For this category of consumers, it seems wise to opt for special smartphones. For the clumsiest, most adventurous or unluckiest, some manufacturers have developed extremely robust smartphones.
With these, there's no need to worry about scratches on the screens. They're not afraid of falls, and resistance is their specialty. In this case, there is no need to opt for screen protectors made of tempered glass. The same applies to the shells. Robust and shock-resistant, these devices are self-sufficient.
To go even further in adventures, these products can even be used in extreme conditions. The coldest and highest temperatures do not affect their operation in any way. As far as water resistance is concerned, some models are extremely efficient. You can find out more about this with the protection class certifications.
However, while the IP 65, IP 66, IP 67, IP 68 and IP 69 certifications are being developed, other alternatives provide protection, particularly against water. For example, specially designed packaging allows you to take your smartphone with you in the water. And all in complete safety.
