Snap Vs Armoured Phone Cases


Are you clumsy or careful? That is the question you need to ask yourself when deciding which phone case type is right for you. Here we breakdown the benefits of our tough armoured cases and slim snap cases.

For those who don't frequently drop their phone, prefer a very slim feel to their phone we recommend the slim snap case. If you are on the clumsy side and often feel like your phone is slipping we suggest the tough armoured phone case that covers all edges, top and bottom.

Whether you choose a slim snap case or protective armoured case, both take 2-3 business days to print and get ready for shippment. Please note that express shipping does not mean express production and our orders are printed in the order that they are received.

Snap and armoured versions are made of a polycarbonate material with a fixed shape and is a hard material, and not a soft rubber or silicon. The armoured case does have an internal layer that is softer rubber to help with impact absorption. They are fully recyclable at the end of their life.

Both snap and armoured versions have raised edges for the screen and camera, the depth of the edge depends on each devices needs and camera height. We recommend the armoured version if you are after a more protective phone case as the snap does not cover the top and bottom of the phone.

No, there would be too much space around the case if the rubber insert was removed.

For overall device protection, a case like our armoured version which covers the corners, edges and back of a phone, is your best bet. A good case will protect your phone from scratches and absorb impact in those areas when your device is dropped however there are many factors in a fall such as the surface the phone hits, the height, the speed and if your phone's screen hits any object on it's way down.
