Smartphones are fragile, that goes without saying. As the phones now are made of glass and have so many small details, a physical impact can leave worse result for your phone than you can imagine. So, a case to protect your devices is an important thing now. But some people are really clumsy, so they might need special smartphone cases to protect their phones from what life throws at them (or what they throw their phone at).

Below here we have gathered 5 protection smartphone cases that you might want to take a look at if you drop your phone as regular as you drop your beat.

Otterbox Defender

Otterbox is the brand for tough smartphones cases, no argument needed. The company has proudly earned this title for itself. Just look at the Defender from Otterbox. This case has a multi-layer design, a hard frame protecting the front, and a hard foam-lined inner shell for the back. The Defender also features a soft silicone layer around the outside with the aim of shock absorption. This case has a version with the optional screen protection, but this version does not protect your phone from water. If you want a case that provides the capability of waterproof, look right at the number 2 spot in our list (which is right below.

Lifeproof Fre

Like we said about, this case is waterproof (and you might have predicted that via the name of the case). Now is 2019, so a lot of flagship smartphones feature the ability of water resistance and dust resistance, but an extra layer of waterproof is certainly necessary for people who stay close to the water a lot. This case is from Otterbox too, and it can seal your whole phone from the top to the bottom, no water can get in. The plastic screen of the case can even allow you to use your touch screen and your fingerprint sensor (though you will feel the sensor and the screen work much better without the case). Although the Lifeproof Fre is not as strong as the Defender, this case still can stand a drop from 1,8m.

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro

Supcase is not a super famous brand in phone protection case field, but it always offers a good case for a cheap price. The Unicorn Beetle Pro by them is an example. This case features a multi-layered design with TPU and polycarbonate, as well as a built-in screen protector to prevent scratches. The producer claims that this case can take a drop from about 6m. Perhaps the case cannot do that in practice, but the statement from Supcase can assure buyers of a cheap but good phone protection case.

Urban Armor Gear Monarch

Urban Armor Gear describes the tests it performed on the Urban Armor Gear Monarch is that: “a device is dropped 26 times from a height of 48 inches, on each face, corner, and back.” This case features a five-layer design, including top grain leather (for a premium look) and metal hardware (instead of cheap-feeling plastic). This design makes the case thinner than your normal expectation, so you might want to consider this case for your phone.

Element Case Black Ops

This case proves that a smartphone case can be as expensive as a smartphone. The Black Ops case by Element Case can cost you up to $200 dollar, but it also brings premium experience for its users. This case features high-end materials like CNC-machined G10 and aircraft-grade aluminum, so you can ‘kinda freely’ drop your phone with this case (just don’t drop it onto your feet). It is hard to say whether this case actually worth its price tag, but if you are on a comfortable budget and your smartphone is expensive, give this bad boy a try.
