This article is meant to guide you in purchasing the perfect cell phone case for your mobile device. Before we begin, I’d like to point out that the article should really be titled “Choosing the Perfect Cell Phone Case for me,” since everyone will have a different taste when it comes to style and design.

Here are the factors you should consider when choosing a cell phone case:

Convenience
Fitment
Protection
Price
Durability
Style and design

When it comes to cases, there are generally 4 different types that most cases will fall under, pouches, snap-on, aluminum, or soft-fitted cases.

Pouches: Ideal for people who like to carry their phones on their belts, pouches generally come with heavy-duty belt clips that attach securely to your waist, allowing a safe place to keep your phone. One of the main advantages of pouches as a protective carrying solution is that they are generally very sturdy and have very strong belt clips. In terms of protection, it offers great protection when your phone is in the pouch but your phone is completely exposed to damage when taken out.

If you don’t mind having to remove the phone from the pouch every time you want to make a call or check your e-mails, this would be a good solution to keeping your phone protected. Pouches are generally more expensive than your standard snap-on case and usually made of cowhide leather, polyurethane leather, neoprene or vinyl, making them very durable and some looking better over time as the leather ages. Stronger and more resilient to abuse compared to other types of Cool Samsung phone cases most pouches are compatible with a number of different phones, even though many are made with a specific phone in mind like the Samsung Omnia i910 Horizontal Leather Pouch – Black.

One pouch can potentially accommodate the size of hundreds of different types of phones, the Samsung Leather Pouch – which is compatible with cell phones like the Samsung Impression a877 and the Samsung Instinct S30 M810, is one such example. In terms of style and design, they are available in many colors, shapes, and sizes, also featuring unique designs like crocodile skin, zebra, and leopard prints. Newer pouches like the Apple iPhone 3g Chloe Dao Pinstripe Horizontal Pouch feature the designs of famous designers and are geared to attract the fashion-conscious customer.

Snap-on, Hard-plastic Cases: These cases offer convenience by offering exact fitment and most offering full access to your phone. Usually constructed of two pieces that snap to the bottom and the top of your phone, snap-on cases fit as close to your phone as possible. Accurate fitment and custom cutouts particular to each phone allow access to the charging ports, camera, volume button and keep all the functions of your phone intact. Due to the accurate fitment of the case for each phone, snap-on cases are usually compatible with a single phone or very rarely with a single series of phones like the BlackBerry Curve Series phones.

Snap-on cases will not break the bank, most are cheap and can be purchased for under $10, with the higher brand-name quality cases like the BlackBerry Storm 9530 9500 Series Otterbox Defender Case – (OEM) Original – RBB2-9500S-20-C50 costing up to $50. Since snap-on cases fit directly over your phone, these cases tend to be as durable as the surface of your phone. Most are constructed of lightweight plastic that offers a second “shell” for your phone and gets its structural support from the actual phone, which make them weak against shock such as a 10 ft fall but make them ideal when it comes to protection against scratches, dents of scrapes. Some cases like the LG Vu CU920 Touchable Lens Protector Case – Clear includes a thin protective cover for the screen, but most leave the screen open for easy access. Snap-on cases come in a variety of colors and designs.
