3 Most Durable iPhone 4 Cases
Your cell phone case should not only be incredibly stylish to fit in with your personal sense of style but also protective because even the most careful individuals cannot prevent all accidents from happening. Even if the phone doesn’t get dropped there are common marks that can cause the phone’s appearance to be harmed through scratches or scruffs. There are many different cases that vary in materials they are made out of and there are multiple cases that are created incredibly durable as well.
Otterbox Armor Waterproof Case
Water damage is one of the most common types of damage that can occur to a phone and it sadly isn’t covered by any of the major warranties. This case really gives a new meaning to protection since it is able to protect from not only water but sand and dust as well. The case is virtually uncrushable or breakable polycarbonate shell. The shocks are protected due to the interior design of the case. One of the best parts is that the case still allows for the phone to be used and get protected at the same time with additional protection. One drawback is that a headset needs to be used or speaker phone in order to allow communication. It also takes away from the slim design because it is rather large. The price for this case is well worth it for the unparalleled protection at $69.96.
Otterbox Defender Case
Otterbox also specializes in making another very heavy duty case for iPhone 4 called the defender. It has three individual layers that offer protection and they are designed to help keep any outside materials such as dirt or dust away from the device itself. The case also allows for the phone to be used completely without blocking any functionality and provides the ability for the phone to be clipped to a belt for complete mobility and accessibility as well. It also claims to offer protection against shocks or drops but water protection isn’t available. Bulk is added but it is a price that must be paid in order for the most durable protection. The actual cost of the case isn’t too high and averages to about $46.74.
Belkin Grip Vue
Another option for a case that isn’t made by Otterbox is the Grip Vue by Belkin. The material of the case itself isn’t hard plastic but more sturdy than silicone to offer ultimate protection on your iPhone 4. It protects all aspects of the phone besides the screen but you can complement the case by adding a nice screen protector to the formula. The material allows for a very firm grip on the device and doesn’t add a lot of bulk to the device in the process which is a major selling point. The case itself is transparent but the back has a bit of a gray appearance to it. It is a bit difficult to access the side controls but don’t let that turn you away completely. It’s a good case and for a good value at only $24.95.
