This likely won’t come as a news flash to anyone, but your cell phone is no longer simply a cell phone. Sure, you still make and receive calls on your phone – important calls like “Get home now, I’m going into labor!” and not-so-important calls like “I’m at the pizza joint, do you want extra cheese on that?” – but the functionality has advanced light years beyond what Alexander Graham Bell had in mind. Now we text short messages back and forth, play games, surf the internet and so much more. The Apple slogan “Yeah, there’s an app for that” is the ultimate smartphone truth, with applications for virtually everything, including finding the aforementioned hospital emergency rooms and pizza joints.
So, with our cell phones taking such a prominent position in our hustle and bustle techno-world, why in the world do do many people do so little to protect their devices? Mobile phones get dropped, broken, lost and otherwise rendered unusable every day, when most of it could be avoided just by using two very basic and affordable smartphone accessories, the cell phone case and the holster.
Cell Phone Cases
Using a cell phone case just makes too much sense to ignore. They add very little mass or weight to your favorite device, but offer an incredible amount of protection. From impact protection to scratch-resistance, cell plone covers and cases not only allow you to save money by not having to replace your phone every time you break it, but the variety in styles allows you to impart your own personality and sense of fashion into the equation. The bottom line is simple. Unless you enjoy replacing your phone, or using a phone that’s banged up and damaged, getting a smartphone case is the only logical way to go.
Holster that Techno-Weapon!
How many times have you missed an important call or text because you set your phone down somewhere and weren’t around to hear it ring? How many times have you, or someone you know, lost your phone because you left it somewhere while you were out and about at work or on the town? The answer is probably quite often,” but it could easily become “almost never” with the use of a cell phone holster. Phone holsters clip right on your belt or other piece of clothing, and ensures that you always have your phone close at hand when you need it. They are lightweight, unobtrusive and ultimately inexpensive. After using a cell phone holster for a short period of time, you won’t even notice that you’re wearing it…until your phone rings, that is.
Cell phone cases and holsters are among the most basic tech accessories devised by mankind. They do so much, yet cost so little. Using a cell phone without them just seems a little silly, and sets you up as a likely victim of an unforeseen accident or mishap. Don’t let that happen to you!
