    You’ve had your eye on that new Android smartphone for a while and decided today would be the day you purchase it.  Your new phone is going to allow you to search the web, check emails and stream music and video.  Before you finalize your purchase it is important to realize that smartphones are very susceptible to damage.  There are a few simple purchases you can make to protect your new Android powered mobile device

    Protective Case  

    Shopping for a case can seem like a daunting prospect, especially since Android phones come in so many shapes and sizes.  Therefore, the first thing you should do is identify the model of your phone and find a selection of cases that match that model.  

    Once you know the model, you will be able to select from a few different types of cases.  It’s best to avoid cases that look flimsy or those that do not fit your phone like a glove.  A hard case is a great option if you are constantly on the go, offering perhaps the best protection.  For those of you who prefer something more stylish and less bulky, a skin case would be a great alternative.  Skin cases offer great protection, are lightweight and would not fall off if you dropped your phone.

    Screen Protectors

    The screen is the part of the phone you look at the most, so it makes sense that you would want to protect it.  Similar to shopping for a case, the first step for purchasing a screen protector is to identify the model of your phone.  Since the screen protector doesn’t have to conform to an exact size, you can be a bit more flexible in your purchase, but at least make sure anything you buy is big enough to cover the entire screen.

    If you’re on a budget, there are screen protectors that will offer you safety from minor cracks and scratches at an economical price.  For those of you who need maximum reinforcement there are ultra tough screen protectors.  Some of the better ones claim that they will eliminate the need for a case.  You can judge for yourself whether or not these are the right protectors for you.

    Screen protectors also offer other features.  Anti-glare is useful to have if you using your phone outdoors at night.  If you’re sensitive to light you may opt for a tinted model.  


    Your Android smartphone is a valuable piece of technology, and it would behoove you not to protect it from damage.  Cases and screen protectors are near essential items, and you’ll thank yourself for purchasing them the next time you drop your phone.
