Making the Case for the Modern iPhone Case
The jury is divided: To use or not to use a modern iPhone case on Apple’s smartphone. You have to make the decision for yourself, of course, and the following discussion will contribute to your choice.
Ruins the Beauty of the Smartphone
Many iPhone enthusiasts firmly believe that putting the smartphone in a case is a sacrilege of sorts regardless of the case’s design, dimensions and price. The rationale: The iPhone, especially the iPhone 6, is a work of art that covering it in a case is akin to buying a work of art, placing it up on the wall, and putting a sheet over it as protection against the dust and dirt, even from the possible damage caused by human hands.
With a case on it, you will be unable to appreciate its beauty from its aluminum backing and sapphire lens to its laser-cut buttons. You will also have to deal with the added bulk of the case, which takes away from the beauty of the iPhone 6’s super-slim design.
This is true even when an expensive and fashionable iPhone case is used since all smartphone cases will likely detract from the beauty of the materials, design and construction of the smartphone.
Accentuates the Beauty of the Smartphone
Many loyal iPhone users also expressed their preference for using deluxe cases on their smartphones for several reasons including:
Lesser risk of breakage
While the iPhone 6 has been built with durability in mind, you have to keep in mind that it is not exactly made from thick glass and metal. Instead, the smartphone has an ultra-thin design characterized by its thin sapphire glass user interface and aluminum backing, which does not lend itself well to impact with a hard surface (e.g., concrete floor).
With an oak iPhone case, you can enjoy the benefit of lesser risk for breakage. You want the best possible protection for your iPhone without completely surrounding it with pillows. You will appreciate the better grip on your iPhone, which means lesser risks of it slipping from your hands.
Greater protection for the surface
The iPhone 6 is just as vulnerable to surface damage, such as scratches, nicks and dents, as any other mobile device. Putting a case on it provides greater protection from said damage, thus, ensuring that your iPhone looks almost as new as the day you first bought it several months later.
The bottom line: The iPhone 6 is a sophisticated information and communication tool that should be protected from the factors that contribute to its wear and tear, such as scratches and impacts with the floor – and one of the best ways to do it is by placing it in a case.
