For owners of the highly anticipated and innovative Samsung Droid Charge, certain accessories, such as cases, are must-haves. But choosing the right case can be difficult. The market offers a lot of choice in terms of design, style and materials.
So in this article, we examine and explore those options and weigh their pros and cons. A smartphone as innovative and anticipated as the all-new Samsung Droid Charge is quite rare. There is little doubt that this is a unique and special device, and it comes little surprise that gadgeteers and technophiles the world over have flocked to it the way that they have.
Beyond the device itself, a big part of what makes this phone such a success is the wide array of Samsung Charge accessories available. Consumers will have little trouble finding the perfect portable Samsung Charge charger, extended-life battery, screen protector, charm and so forth. There are so many options to choose from, but one piece that should be at the top of everyone’s list is an Samsung Charge case.
The challenge of finding the perfect case is overcoming the sheer amount of choices saturating the market. The key to doing just that is to consider budget, protection and usage. In other words, we need a Samsung Charge case that works for our wallet, provides adequate protection and doesn’t interfere with the way we use our Droid Charge. The basic styles of cases available are designer, impact and leather.
Samsung Droid Charge Cases
Designer cases put style first. Impact cases accentuate shock absorption. And leather cases can be both, or one or the other. And generally, the lines between the types blur. Despite providing only adequate amount of protection, designer cases are among the most popular. They’re typically a body glove that slips or snaps onto the Samsung Droid Charge and made from hard plastic, silicone or some rubberized material.
Designer cases are available in an endless range of patterns and colors, which is why they are so popular, since there’s something for everyone. And designer cases sometimes include a screen protector or have a window for one, and they do provide scratch protection and basic shock absorption. Like these designer type cases, genuine leather cases are also extremely popular. In terms of style, the benefit is personalization and unique design qualities. In terms of protection, leather offers great durability and some shock absorption. In some cases, the manufacturer is able to add a padding layer to the interior that provides even greater protection.
The problem with leather cases is that they’re a little clumsy. This isn’t a problem if you want a leather holster or pouch, but if you want a streamlined Samsung Charge case that you can actually use while it’s on, then leather isn’t the best choice. The impact category actually covers a wide range of cases. Earlier we mentioned that the lines tend to blur, and that is certainly the situation here. A very common impact case is the soft silicone skin, which are available both in model-specific and universal formats.
Don’t be fooled by their thinness. Skins provide a great level of protection that often surpasses that of much thicker designer cases. Another type of impact case is the rubberized or ABS plastic shell. Rubberized cases tend to provide the best protection, but they can be a bit unwieldy. Quality plastic cases are far easier to use and often share many of the same qualities that make designer cases so popular. So whichever type of Samsung Charge case you decide to chose consider budget, protection and usage.
