The best type of cover for a cell phone depends a lot on the way the handset owner uses your phone, since gathering all the qualities in one piece is practically impossible. Models that offer more security, for example, are often less practical in use and vice versa. On the other hand, having a case on the smartphone is currently essential due to the fragility of the handsets. TechTudo then lists the main types of covers and what the benefit of each is.
According to electronicsmatter, the bumper consists of a cover that wraps around the sides of the phone, leaving the screen and rear free. It is a useful cover mainly because the machines’ corners are their weakest points. Although it protects less the device compared to a full body cover, it has the advantage of handling, precisely because it is lighter and less spacious than other models. Some even have a kind of English punch coupled, which serves to allocate the fingers (except the thumb) and give more security in the footprint.
Usually, the bumper is made of rubber on the inside-which helps to cushion the impacts-and on plastic externally. There is a huge diversity of colors and textures for these covers, whose openings and holes position themselves according to the model of the smartphone. As well as the visual, there is a great variation of prices in this type of cover, that can cost between $ 20 and $ 100.
The cases in format flip function as an envelope to mobile. When closed, it covers the front and back of the device, protecting as much from drops and scratches as from malicious looks. To move the phone, just open the front, which makes the cover very practical.
The ability of the flip case to preserve the smartphone depends heavily on the material in which it is made. There is a very large variety in that aspect, but the most popular ones are leather, carbon fiber and a combination of fiber and plastic.One of the negatives of this type of case is that it prevents the screen from being displayed, but some models present intelligent solutions to this problem, such as having a transparent front or an aperture that allows the display to be viewed.
In terms of customization, it follows the trend of other types of protection and features a multitude of colors, patterns and textures, ranging from the most discreet to the most extravagant. A little more expensive than the bumper, the flip covers have average prices ranging from $ 30 to $ 190.
Silicone And TPU
Although these names refer to the material of manufacture, not the model itself, the silicone and TPU (Thermoplastic Polymer) covers are known to cover the back and sides of the device, leaving the front exposed. The silicone ones have as main advantage the malleability, which facilitates the footprint.
This feature, however, causes the protection to wear quickly – around 6 months the cover begins to show damage. On the other hand, they are cheap (about R $ 20), making this exchange period quite reasonable. In addition, the silicone is very easy to wash – soap and water is sufficient, since other cleaning products attack the material.
The TPU works the opposite way: it is quite resistant, but offers little comfort in handling. This is because its surface is harder, which also interferes in the design and leaving the cell phone more “brick”. This feature, however, does not diminish in any way its flexibility, in addition to better protect the cell against fat.
The TPU gains from the silicone in resistance against sudden temperatures (low or high), wear less with friction and scratches and does not loosen after a certain period of use. The best option for this type of cover are the color models, because the transparent ones yellow after a few months. The average cost of a TPU is $ 50.
Normally made of leather, synthetic and velvet, the zippered hoods are the champions in the economy – depending on the material, it is possible to find models for R $ 4. They are also cheaper for customization, usually done in embroidery. Despite this, the appearance is the main defect of the zippered hoods, which totally hide the smartphone and still “fattens” enough.
In terms of protection, it resolves, at least in day-to-day incidents. The thicker and harder the manufacturing material, the better the preservation. But do not expect great security. The cell phone escapes from screen scratches, but not from drops of more than 1 meter in height (let alone water).
Apart from this, the model has many drawbacks over time: it is difficult to clean, it looks quickly aged and it is common for the zipper to slither, almost eliminating the function of the cape. This means that you will have to change it quite frequently, which may not compensate for the low price.
The films are for those who care exclusively about the screen of the smartphone. They protect against scratches, dirt and grease left by the fingers-and only. There is no interference in the body of the device, which means zero fall protection. Its great advantage is that it is a protection that can be added to a case, to double security on the cell phone.
The best films stick to electrostatics, not glue, which prevents the creation of bubbles at the time of application and keeps the display clean after removal. Some are made of transparent material, but you can also find models with some addition of color (which will change the color perception of the screen itself, so it may not be a good option).
There are good films with anti-glare properties costing between $ 15 and $ 20, and all show good performance over touchscreen, not interfering with touch sensitivity. The cleaning is done with flannel and the durability can vary greatly-from months to years-according to the care of the owner, the aggressions to which the film was exposed and the brand of the product.
We also have the covers for people who want maximum protection. This type of model is what most interferes in the original format and weight of the cell phone, so it is not normally used in everyday life. In contrast, over-protective covers are a great solution for travel, sports or situations where using the device is more “risky”.

As they are manufactured with ultra-resistant materials, this type of casing is the most expensive. Average prices range from $ 180 to $ 250, which also indicates its use in top-of-the-line smartphones. A common combination of these covers is ABS plastic with silicone – the first, harder on the outside, with the silicone inside, acting as a shock absorber.
Some type covers are waterproof, holding approximately 30 minutes of submersion, to a depth of 2 meters. In demonstrative videos on the manufacturers’ websites, the cases support impressive assaults, such as being hit by cars or smacking several times in a row. These covers also have the advantage of coming with warranty, which is critical considering the high cost.
