Default Phone Covers in a time of Covid.

So I removed my slim iphone cover after a trip out to the supermarket. Gave it a rinse.

My phone feels so much sleeker and lighter, the way it was designed. It's not going back on.

Mine is an old iphone 7. Would I be as cavalier with a £1000 iphone Excelsior? Probably not.

I did the same before Christmas with my iPhone X, and loved the feeling so much I decided to go bareback.

Ended up dropping it in a Kebab shop on New Year’s Day . At first glance, thought it was ok. Turned it over and the back was smashed to bits. Quoted £400 for a repair.

Never making the same mistake again. Strap up every time from now on

With the number of times I drop my phone, not a chance.

I did recently buy a slightly less bulky case and it really does feel like you have a new phone

Had my current phone 5 years now (iPhone 6S Plus).

Got one of these cases for it soon as I got the phone:

The case is battered to f***. The phone is absolutely pristine, as good as new. I'd never risk a phone without a case.

The case and tempered glass screen protector get ordered the same time as the phone in our house.

If anybody in my house takes the cover off they get a bollocking. Paid for enough replacement phones

All in on the armoured case for my foreign phones and they're f***ing indestructible. Like a pocket Humvee

Sick to death of smashing phones coming off motorbikes . Also waterproof for those times you drive into canals

Saved me a fortune

Congrats. You have a 5 quid phone that weighs more than my car.
