Tuesday Poll: Are You Protecting Your Smartphone?

spigen ultra thin air galaxy s4

It’s 2013, smartphones have grown to outrageous sizes, prices certainly haven’t decreased, and we’re using them even more. So we’re curious, are you still protecting your phone? Or should we say, are you protecting your technological investment? With 2-year contracts still in existence, we know that many of you have jumped on subsidized phone deals because the thought of buying a phone at full retail can give anyone a migraine. So that also means that you likely aren’t interested in forking out $650 dollars should an accident take your phone’s life. It’s been a while since we asked, but we’d love to know how you are preserving your phone.

Are you using some form of protection? Case? Screen protector? If so, be sure to tell us what you’ve chosen in the comments.

    I’m incredibly careful with my phone, and mine have never broken, even without using a case either. And I can easily afford few dozen phones a year.

      So youre contradicting your own argument that its only prudent to use a case. Good job, Sherlock.

    I have the Samsung galaxy s3. Bought a kick butt case. Trident kraken ams. Has kickstand, tripod, Window and Bicycle mount. Thing is tough. I highly recommend.

    I always used to roll naked because I absolutely hated the look and feel of cases on screen protectors, until I got my S4. Never had a case or screen protector on the OG Droid or the Incredible, tried to put an anti-glare and anti-smudge screen protector on the Rezound but it was way too rubbery feeling, looked like a transparent orange peel and didn’t even fit the phone (the protector was 4″, the Rezound was 4.3), so that lasted like a whole 3 days. My roommate had an Otterbox for his Gnex but then got an S3 so he gave it to me and it was nice because it protected everything, but was WAY too bulky so that came off too after like 4 or 5 days. When I got the S4 it was such a beautiful and sleek phone that I didn’t want to put a case on it, but also for the same reason I wanted to protect it. A friend showed me the “bumper case” on her S4 and it was small enough to unobtrusive but tough enough to protect it from scratches and bumps. This is the first case I’ve kept on my phone for longer than like 3 days. It’s been on there for about 3 weeks, I take it off whenever I’m in a location where drops wouldn’t hurt it (carpeted floors, couches, etc..).

    I’m using a Aimo Wireless Black Armor case on my Nexus 4. I got to have something on it, I’ve dropped it 3 times since I’ve had and it I’m 6’2″. All three times just the sound of the drop sounded like it was totaled, but it came out just fine.

    Otterbox Defender, protects the phone, makes it easier to hold.
    protects phone for resale value too.
    I dont “NEED” the case, I prefer to have it.
