Smartphones are expensive electronic devices. There are high-end phone models like the iPhone 14 or the Samsung Galaxy S23 that cost as much as tens of millions of dongs. For many people, the phone is sometimes an expensive “heirloom”, and it takes a long time to save it.
Therefore, the psychology of the users is to cherish the phone and protect it by all means. You don’t want your phone damaged, scratched, or even dusty. This is quite understandable, especially since repairing some smartphones costs the same as buying a new one.
Cases are the best phone protection solution. Even the case is an indispensable item for everyone who uses the phone.
Although there are many advantages, in reality cases are not the perfect solution. You can consider the following drawbacks before using this supplement.
1. Not 100% protection
Most people who buy phone cases think that the accessories will make the phone more durable and last for a long time. Some people use cases to keep their phones new and have a higher resale value.
But the case does not protect the phone 100%. Sometimes, it increases the chances of a device crashing.
For example, if dirt, debris, or moisture gets into the phone case, it can scratch or break the back glass.
2. Loss of aesthetics
Smartphone companies spend millions of dollars to provide the most aesthetic product design. They always want the product when it is launched to have the satisfaction of the user.
From premium glass coatings to unique design lines, color-changing viewing angles, and a host of other innovations, smartphone design has evolved dramatically over the past few years.
There’s no reason to hide a beautiful smartphone that took years to design with a monochromatic phone case. It’s because your phone is expensive, so show it to everyone, rather than covering it with a lifeless case for fear of getting scratched.
3. Reduce heat dissipation
Today’s smartphones are packed with powerful chipsets and great multitasking capabilities. When in use, the machine will emit a large amount of heat. If a case is used, the compressed heat inside will not leak out, which will damage the machine and cause discomfort when using.
This is even worse if the phone case is made of a variety of materials or is very thick. The problem is exacerbated when the phone is exposed to external heat sources (sun, lights, etc.). Too much overheating will damage the battery.
Not using the case will help the phone dissipate heat better and feel cooler when you hold it.
Ignoring the issue of heat dissipation and overheating, the case also makes the smartphone big, heavy, bulky and unnatural.
4. Double wireless charging
Wireless charging technology requires physical contact between the smartphone and the charging base. To use convenient accessories, users have to remove the case. This causes a problem every time I use it.
Some wireless charging bases can charge smartphones through the case, but there is one problem: longer charging time. As mentioned above, wireless charging is effective when the phone is near the charging base. Having a phone case increases the distance, so charging is not optimal.
In general, cases help protect the phone, but they are not worth much compared to the damage they cause. You should not use it a lot or invest a lot of money to buy high-end protective cases.
Usually, each person has a telephone exchange cycle within 2-3 years. Therefore, enhancing the high-end feel/aesthetics of the phone when not using the case is also something to consider.
Just remove the case and your phone will be sleek and lightweight in the hand. This is exactly the experience that the manufacturer wants to offer the user.
And if for some reason you still want to use a case, use the ultra-thin cases. But you should know that phones are not designed to be protected by cases.
Manufacturers have spent a lot of time researching and using the latest protective materials (like Corning Gorilla Glass) to make phones more and more durable.
