Phone covers

What is good about phone covers?

  • Waterproof

What is not so good about phone covers?

  • Redundant if you change your phone and it is a different size?
  • You have to take it out of the case to take a selfie AND make a call
  • The case cover reflects the sun’s glare and makes it difficult to see
  • Steams up when it rains
  • Drops of rain makes the screen move around (like it is your finger)
  • Touching the screen to zoom in or out is not always very responsive
  • Not easy for charging and plugging in earplugs

I like to be transparent – some products (not all) will be affiliate links – you pay no more, the product makers may give me a small commission, and sometimes I buy a load of products and sell them if I think that is the best solution for you.

I only promote products that I have used and recommend.

The review here is my genuine opinion, I never recommend any products to earn more commission.
