Awesome iPhone 4 Cases

Updated on October 16, 2012

What Type of iPhone Cover Should You Choose?

As we all know, iPhone technology is changing at a speed that would make anyone dizzy. It used to be that the only important updates were to the actual phone itself. The accessories were just something that gave the phone style. Now, in order to protect the wonderful new technology, it isn't just the iPhone that gets regularly updated, it is all the accessories as well.

Waterproof iPhone Cases

When I first heard about waterproof iPhone cases, I naturally thought I am not around the ocean or even around a pool a lot. Therefore, I probably wouldn't be needing a waterproof case.

Obviously, at the time, I wasn't thinking about bathrooms, kitchens, washing machines, dog bowls, glasses filled with liquids, rain, snow, or toilets.

Yes, even toilets can ruin your phone in a split second. One of my friends had his phone in the back pocket of his jeans, When he started to pull his pants down, the phone slipped out and landed in the toilet bowl.

His unfortunate experience, got me to thinking that probably with my active life style, what I actually need is some combination of a case that protects against everyday use as well as one that will protect against the off chance that I drop my phone in some form of water.

Durable iPhone Covers That Can Take A Beating

You probably know if you are the kind of person that needs this case. My nephews came to visit me last summer. The three of them are avid trail bikers, and believe me their phones take a royal beating. People who need this type of case are likely to lead life to the extreme. They carry their phones in their pocket and when there is a mishap, the phone slips out and hits the ground, pavement or floor.

Another segment of the population that could make good use of this type of iPhone cover is the person who uses his phone a lot. Some people use their phones so often that they typically carry their phones in their hand. It is just common sense that the more you use your phone the more likely you are to drop it repeatedly.

I tried not putting a cover on one of my phones, but within a few weeks, it looked like it had been through the ringer in just a few weeks. It just makes good sense to put a cover on your phone. You never know when an accidental slip can happen.

There are some really unique, cool looking covers that can make you take a second look at the many chic and custom iPhone covers that offer a world of protection without sacrificing style.

Buyers of designer iPhone cases are typically unique individuals that like to be known for their trend-setting pace. They aren't afraid to be seen with a cover that is custom designed with their special colors, certain patterns, their initials or even the initials of their boyfriends. The cover they choose or design may be the only one like it in the world and that is totally all right.
