Results: how much are you willing to spend on a smartphone case?
by Preslav Kateliev / Apr 12, 2017, 9:29 AM
So, it's only natural for many to buy cases for their smartphones — protectors that defend the shiny device from scratches and scuffs that may devalue and decrease its visual appeal, or even damaging cracks when dropped. But it's not often an easy decision to put a plastic case on your beautiful metal or glass handset — after all, it's design is probably one of the things that enticed you to buy this exact model.
Some people will offset this by using extra-thin and / or transparent cases, others will invest in an expensive case that is itself pretty to look at and pleasant to the touch. There will be the odd eccentric that goes and buys a $1,000 case (check out Advent Aurora cases) for their iPhone made of pure titanium.
We thought we'd ask — how much would you spend on a case? Here's how you answered!
How much are you willing to spend on a smartphone case? (not including battery cases)
$1-$2 - I buy them in bulk and I buy them cheap
Up to $10
Up to $20
Up to $50
I'd pay up to $100 for the right case
I'd pay more than $100 for the right case

$20 is about right. There's a reason the cell phone accessory market is so huge, you can buy a ten to twenty dollar case that's as good if not even better than an Otterbox or Body Glove.

Not true! cases that cost $20 really aren't that good and the two brands that you compare $20 cases to aren't that good either.

No, the reason it's huge is because it's easier to manufacture a simple accessory for the most common device on the planet than it is to design something new

$20 plus tax is my limit. Amazon always has a good deal.

I know you answered this on a post already, but I've lost that post in all the jumble of people bickering about iphone vs android. what cases do you have picked out for your s8+?
