Cell Phone Case and Screen Protector?

Post by Kennedy » Wed Mar 20, 2019 7:51 pm

I'm looking for a case and screen protector for an IPhone xs. Someone suggested using Qmadix Liquid Glass with a Tech 21 case. Reviews on Amazon for the Qmadix product were mixed.

I tend to drop my phone a lot.

Any suggestions?

I’ve had good luck with a brand called Spigen from Amazon. Although it is on the light side which works for me. Since you drop your phone a lot you might want to look at something like an Otter Box.

Can’t comment on screen protectors but I just bought a new case. I ended up with an Otterbox Symmetry. I found the quality was much better than others I looked at. You can check them out at Best Buy if you want to see before you purchase. I am very pleased.

I have had good success with speck cases. I am using one now.

I don’t use a screen protector but I’ve known people who got a screen protector applied in-store by a machine. Seems like a good way to get a screen protector, if you need one. Not sure if they got it at an Apple store or phone (eg ATT) store.

amFilm Glass Screen Protector has saved my bacon quite a few times. I am a true believer.

I actually just bought a Speck Presidio case for my daughter a few mins ago. My wife is using one currently on her iphone and my daughter just got a new to her (refurbished) iphone so my wife said get her the same speck. My wife does not use a screen protector and the speck has been holding up very well thus far.
