Which case type do you prefer for your phone?
posted by Daniel P. / Dec 11, 2015, 7:23 AM
Those expensive phones that are filling the shelves and thinning our pockets nowadays often go into a case directly after the purchase, for various reasons. Most of us are protecting the phone from wear, tear or drops by putting it in a case, some are looking for extra aesthetics, and others are simply trying to prolong the usable time out of their handsets by putting them in a battery case.
While this means that often our endless fights and arguments over this and that phone design concept become moot the second we put a case on, it has also given birth to a veritable cottage industry with billions in accessory revenue.
Thus, we are curious about the type of case each of you prefers to place on their precious handsets, as there are many kinds out there. These range from simple bumpers, through folios to designer stuff - where we encompass not only Swarovski-encrusted or Burberry patterns, but also anything unorthodox, like funky materials, cases with assorted attachments, or simply weird stuff like those foodie collections you might have seen here and there. Take your pick in the poll below, and tell us why do you prefer this one before the others.
What case type do you prefer for your phone?
Regular plastic case
Side flip case
A simple bumper does it

What about the no-case option

Putting no-case option in a case-type poll would be really retarded.

They should include the no-case option. I personally hate cases as they ruin the aesthetics of the phone. Have the htc m9, never dropped it and not a single scratch on it's back

you should just learn how to be careful with your gadgets. The only place that has scratches on my phone is the screen, that's because I don't use a screen protector and gorilla glass isn't reliable

NONE. NO case. I'm not dumb enough to buy an Apple product, or a 2015 Samsung, that are constructed of glass. My S5, S4, S3, Note 4, Note 3, and Motorolas NEVER had a case, and NEVER broke. Glass phones are for idiots.

Mine is in between a simple bumper and rugged. I like the protection but don't want all of the bulk. http://www.amazon.com/Galaxy-Note-Spigen-CUSHION-Armor/dp/B010MWGZJ0/ref=sr_1_1

Now that everyone is going metal, you have no choice but to buy a case because one drop and the phone will be damaged somewhere. Dual glass designs were a bad idea, no matter how cool it looks or feels which I do like, I don't like the concept because the materials simply aren't resilient. I was perfectly happy with Samsung poly-carbonate designs where I didnt ever have to use a case. To now have to spend an extra $50 for a case which basically ruins the coolness factor, really sucks. For $700+ I want the phone to already have what it needs to protect it. make it with better materials.

I prefer cases that don't add heft to the phone and that at least allow me to see the design of the phone. My LG G4 is the first phone I bought a case for and it was a relatively low cost case that is clear on the back with a black color frame. Doesn't add a lot of heft to the phone and I still can admire my G4's design.

I prefer sleek case, that should be rugged enough and Most importantly the case should not add overall thickness of the phone. it has been a major problem. why would someone buy a thin phone and put something in the name of case to make the overall size of the phone to a soap case. Also, it should allow us to retain the design of the phone
