With Christmas approaching and the party season now in full swing, followed by the inevitable diet and health kick in the New Year, we thought we offer you some ideas for the toughest phone cases on the market.
We have all had those boozy Christmas party nights when your phone becomes that extra little bit difficult to keep a hold of and slips through your fingers, onto the dance floor or pavement with an ominous thud. Well, now you have that bit of extra protection to ensure the hangover is the only thing you will be cursing the following morning.
In January it’s time to fight the bulge, whether that be getting out the running shoes or to get down the gym. Icy pavements or gym weights and machines are also perilous to unprotected mobile phones so be smart and wrap your device in one of the ultra-protective cases below.
The All Rounder
Cygnett WorkMate Pro Case for iPhone 7 (£19.95)
The WorkMate Protective Case for iPhone 7 offers full phone protection using dual complimentary materials as well as other ‘active’ user benefits such as the raised lip around the screen to protect your device as well as offer ‘lay flat protection’ when your device is face down. The WorkMate offers a more refined slimline designed case avoiding the bulkiness of other highly protective cases in the marketplace which sets it apart from all others. It is available in khaki green, white, black, red and grey.
Available from uk.cygnett.com for £19.95. (Currently on sale at £15.99!)
The Impact Absorber
The GEAR4 Carnaby iPhone 7 case featuring D3O impact absorbing technology (£34.99)
All GEAR4 cases available from www.gear4.com or Carphone Warehouse. D3O® materials in their raw state flow freely when moved slowly, but on shock, lock together to absorb and disperse energy, before instantly returning to their flexible state. This reaction is counter intuitive. The greater the force of the impact, the more the molecules lock together and the greater the protection. Integrated into all GEAR4 Black phone cases, the case range is the first to use an injection moulded grade of D3O® technology to deliver increased impact protection per cubic millimetre than other leading materials.
A new design for the iPhone 7, the Carnaby offers protection without the bulk and features a mesh of colour matched D3O® on the back to add further protection, with style.
It is also available for iPhone 7 Plus, and both cases are scratch resistant. Available in Gold, Rose Gold and Silver.
Available from www.gear4.com or Carphone Warehouse.
The X-Doria Defense Lux iPhone 7 case (£29.99)
X-Doria’s Defense Lux for iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus brings together refined luxury and durability to create the ultimate protective case. Defense Lux features a simple snap-on construction, engineered with a soft inner rubber layer, impact resistant polycarbonate backing, and machined with an aluminium outer frame. The aluminium outer frame protects the perimeter of the iPhone, while inside, the soft rubber wraps around the phone protecting it from up to 6’6” drops on concrete, exceeding military drop test standards – MIL-STD-810G. For a sophisticated look, the case is available in luxurious faux carbon fibre, soft leather, canvas or microfiber rear panel.
Available from Amazon for £29.99.
