I think we can safely assume that most of us have hand phones. And very many of us will have something to protect that hand phone. So how do you pick your cover? Is it a style statement for you? Or will you just pick something for pure practical reasons?

I have gone through several stages when it comes to protecting my phone. I started with fancy covers and used those plastic stickers to cover the front of my iphone. But, oh how I dislike those stickers! I never seem to be able to get the ‘bubbles’ out or the plastic would start to loosen at the sides. So I would end up with a messy looking iphone. Not cool!

I then tried those pocket covers. But if you then put your phone in a bag as well, it becomes impossible to actually hear your phone. The whole nuisance of getting your phone out of your cover before answering it, did not work well either.

So then I moved on to those double covers that you have to open up. These protect your phone and are easy to open. Plus, you don’t have to use the plastic stickers. But the covers themselves don’t last very long at all, as most are made of plastic. These kind of covers usually don’t come in very funky styles either, so I ended up with rather boring cases, which frankly did not add to my style at all. I have now succumbed to a leather red multi case cover to see if that lasts longer. It is a practical choice and I certainly don’t think it looks anywhere near as funky or fashionable as the covers highlighted in this post.

ย I’m very tempted to get myself a sexy cover again and make a bit of a fashion statement with my phone!

How about you? Is your phone cover part of your style or fashion statement or do you choose something purely for practical reasons and don’t you care about the look of your phone?
