These smartphone covers not just protect this sophisticated gadget in our hands but also add to its looks. If you go out to buy a cover for your 6” or 5” handset you will be bombarded with lots of options in different design, material, style, and price. But don’t you get carried away by these tempting options as your primary motive is to protect that phone, remember?

Hence, here in this article, let’s delve into the best mobile phone cover options we have in store for us:

Back Covers

Mobile Phone Back Cover

 Plastic Mobile Back Cover :

Plastic covers are very conveniently available for every smartphone model and in so many attractive designs. They are cheap, stylish, come in many color variants but are not a great investment if you are a chain phone dropper! Plastic back covers can endure only the minor falls and drops. One merit of these plastic covers is that they can cool down the back panel if the phone gets hot but an intense damage or fall from a great height can break it apart. Plastic covers are best for those who focus on looks more and are not a habitual phone dropper.

Price: Very cheap and commonly available
Collection: Comes in multiple design and color options for all the smartphone brands and models
Grip: Fits tightly on the phone
Phone Protection Score: 3/5

Silicone Mobile Back Cover:

Silicone back covers are more durable and better options than the plastic ones. They can endure the damages from falls/drops, can absorb the shocks and thereby saves your smartphone and a lot of bucks! These covers are also easily available in the market, are cost-effective and they also come in many designs and color options but the range available is not as wide as that of the plastic ones. Transparent silicone covers are very popular as they let you flaunt the phone’s back panel. But there is a demerit, silicone covers will not let the phone’s heat escape and will get hot with the back panel.

Price: Cheap
Collection: Comes in limited design and color options
Grip: Fits tightly on the phone
Phone Protection Score: 4/5

Metal Mobile Back Cover:

Aluminum back covers are most common metal covers available in the market. Other alloys of metals are also used in the manufacturing of smartphone cases. They can protect the back panel but the screen is left unprotected like in all other back covers. Metal is a good conductor of heat due to which it does not add to phone overheating and disperses the heat to the surroundings. These covers can make your phone heavy, are a little expensive as compared to the plastic and silicone ones but can render better protection than both of them.

Price: Expensive
Collection: Design and color range is limited
Grip: Fits tightly on the phone
Phone Protection Score: 4.5/5

Hybrid Mobile Back Cover:

Hybrid phone covers feature two layers of protection, the layer that touches the back panel is of silicone while the outer one is of polycarbonate. Hybrid covers grant the phone a rough and tough look and protect it from shocks and accidental drops. They even enhance the grip over the phone, so, even on wet hands, the phone ain’t going anywhere!

Price: Expensive
Collection: Design and color range is limited
Grip: Fits tightly on the phone
Phone Protection Score: 4.5/5

Rubber Mobile Back Cover:

Rubber back covers as the name suggests are made using rubber or similar material. They offer non-slippery grip, are scratch proof and gives excellent protection from drops and bumps. The material can absorb the shock and does not let them reach the phone and damage it. A demerit of this material is that the grip can lose over time after which it will not solve the purpose.

Price: Reasonable Price
Collection: Design and color range is limited
Grip: Fits tightly on the phone
Phone Protection Score: 3/5

Flip Covers

Leather Mobile Flip Cover:

Flip covers are generally available in leather or faux leather material. They offer the best protection amongst all. They cover the phone from all the angles even the screen gets protected in flip covers. Another advantage of flip cover is that you can avoid accidental touch on the screen. The only drawback of this cover is that it ruins the looks of the phone completely and you will have to take out the phone from the case to experience its original skin.

Price: Reasonable Price
Collection: Design and color range is limited
Grip: Fits tightly on the phone
Phone Protection Score: 4.7/5

You must have come across various fabric phone pouches.  Almost every fabric is used to make these phone pouches. Cotton, Silk, jute and more such stuff is used to make these pouches. They often possess a long sling that one can wear around the neck or keep on the shoulder for easy reach. These pouches are not very convenient for anxious users as you have to take the phone out and put it in after every use.

Price: Reasonable Price
Collection: Wide Design and Color range
Grip: Grip is fine
Phone Protection Score: 3.5/5

Sleeve and Socks Mobile Cover:

Phone socks and sleeves are small pouches like holders without a sling. These socks are at times sealed at the top with Velcro patches or at times are open from the top. These socks can save your phone from accidental falls only if they are well padded from the inside, if it’s just the fabric then the damage is inevitable.

Price: Reasonable Price
Collection: Wide Design and Color range
