What Makes a Good Android Case

By Ryan P Lewis Subscribe to RSS | February 13th 2012 | Views:

Since the explosion of Android phones two years ago, there's also been an explosion of accessories for those same phones. Everything from vehicle mounts to battery supplements are available, but the most prolific accessory might be cases. For every phone that comes out, a number of cases are made available for it. Original Droid cases were made by a number of manufacturers, and that trend has continued to today. But what makes a good Android case?

What makes a good Android case is quite different from what makes traditional cell phone cases great. The old days of flip phone cases being good as long as they snapped on and stayed in place are over. Android devices are designed to be looked at, and a case can't overlook that. That's why a good Android case needs to also have style. Whether it's a design on the case or a certain color, an Android case needs to be a good reflection of the user's personality and also needs to match with the phone that it's being used on.

Style isn't the only important element, though. Good-looking Droid cases or other Android cases aren't worth the materials they're made of if they don't do a good job of securing the phone. Android cases need to fit the device they're built for snugly. Ideally, they'll have cutouts so that the power button, volume buttons, microphones and any ports are accessible. After all, what good is a case if it prevents a person from accessing a basic function of his or her device? Android cases need to secure the phones they're made for.

On that same note, Android cases also need to provide protection to a device, since that's they're primary purpose. Not every good case needs to provide the rugged protection of anutility case, although it's certainly not a bad thing if a case does provide that much protection. Instead, a good Android case just needs to stay on when the phone is dropped, and not let the phone's actual body become damaged during a drop. This is where a snug fit is critical. If the phone is lose inside the case, a drop while inside the case will still cause the phone to have friction with the inside of the case, damaging the device. Good cell phone cases should either fit as perfect as possible or have a softer interior.

One final component of a good Android case is a screen protector. These aren't found in the majority of Android cases, but they're certainly a welcome addition to any case. After all, a case is meant to protect the phone, and the screen is part of the phone. Android cases that offer screen shields save the consumer from having to make a separate, potentially expensive purchase. In addition, they keep the glass screen found on many Android phones from ever becoming scratched. In some instances, cases that offer screen shields may offer other benefits, such as being waterproof.

Through a combination of these criteria, some great cases are available. Few manage to meet every piece of this criteria, since it's hard for a case to offer both extreme durability and good looks. Trade-offs must be made in some instances. For nearly ever Android device, though, there are enough case offerings that owners can find a case that provides enough style and protection for their personality.
