You have probably seen many of Mous’ viral videos of people using their cases and throwing their phone down flights of stairs unscathed and there is good reason for that – the case essentially makes your phone almost indestructible. This is largely in part thanks to their proprietary high impact AiroShock™ material that the case is constructed from. It contains thousands of micro air pockets that act as tiny springs, significantly dampening the impact of falls. The triple-layered blend of TPU, PET & Silicon makes this case in a league of its own and takes the crown for the best slim tough case you can buy especially for the iPhone.
Handmade from premium full grain leather, this classic Decoded folio case envelops the outer of the phone and wraps it in a chain of air chambers and advanced impact materials to protect the phone from drops. However, it also offers superb wallet functionality with space to hold bills, notes and several cards and most importantly, has a magnetic clasp to keep the folio closed securely, something strangely absent from other cases in the market.
If you are not a fan of those flimsy plastic screen protectors or don’t like the look and feel of an added slab of glass on top of your screen but still want excellent protection for your device, then you need Nanofixit.
Their team has developed over the past few years a range of nano-coating technologies that originally were used for making high-end cars like Aston Martin or Ferrari “un-scratchable”, protecting them against day-to-day wear and tear. They have now brought this technology to the smartphone world.
Their liquid screen protector essentially adds a coating to your phone that lasts up to a year and makes the phone screen itself ultra-scratch resistant, reduces radiation, makes it germ free & even water repellent. This eco friendly solution makes the screen up to 4 times harder to break by filling in the micropores in the glass to give your screen a 9H hardness rating, which is very good and almost impervious to damage.
Best of all, for those of you lucky enough to have one of those fancy new folding phones, this currently is the only option available to protect your screens and after using this product extensively these past few months, we can confirm it does indeed protect your device very well and is a worthwhile investment.
