It is quite common for people to buy covers for their items, be it a sofa or a car, to keep them safe from damages and to make sure their new purchase look as beautiful as they did when they had purchased it even after prolonged use. But people often ignore the necessity of a mobile phone cover though they are now quite affordable and can be customised for specific devices.
In the market one will find hundreds of cases that are customised for different kind of phones and that too in different price brackets. And because there are so many options available mobile users gets confused and start asking themselves do they require a cover for their phone and what kind of cover should I buy?
First of all, it is not necessary to buy a cover for your smartphone as it depends on your personal preference, comfort factor and need for extra security. But, if you want to buy the cover you are adding value to your phone.
Why should you by a mobile cover?
Screen guards are perhaps the most purchased mobile phone accessory these days but it only guards the display from scratches and not damages. Also, the entire back panel of a mobile phone is always prone to damages from not only scratches but also from serious injury from falls.
There are lots of people who drop their smartphones regularly, though accidentally. A good mobile case can absorb some part of the shock to minimise the damage to the phone.
Also, most of us have the habit of keeping our mobile phones alongside keys in our pockets (or purses) and some love buying new phones and selling their old phones regularly. Thus there is a high probability of the body of the phone getting scratches and scuffs which can result due to regular use. In such a scenario cases can be helpful for keeping a check on unwanted scratches and help you in fetching a good resale value for your phone in the second hand market.
There are lots of mobile users, especially teenagers, who love to flaunt personnel style and there are cover options available in the market to do the same. One can choose theme based, message based or picture based covers for showing your style symbol.
As we said earlier, mobile phone covers are available in different price bracket, starting from as low as Rs 100 and can go up to Rs 20,000. You should also be very careful while choosing a mobile phone cover, if you are buying it online; you should not buy an ill-fitting cover.
