Some tips when buying a case
There are two main reasons why people purchase a case for their phone. They either want to customize their phone with a case that reflects their style or they want to protect their phone from dents, dings or scratches. Because the iPhone is so popular, there are a variety of cases for consumers in the protective camp and also for those who want to make a fashion statement.
When shopping, you can buy directly from the case maker to get the best selection, though it may take longer for you to get your case as the manufacturers usually don’t offer the best shipping terms. You also can look at Amazon or Best Buy as most major manufacturers sell their cases with these other retailers. Amazon and Best Buy will get the case to you faster than the OEM and usually less expensively, too.
