Revealed: The Unknown Weakness in Many iPhone Cases That Can Shatter Your Screen

Imagine I could save your iPhone screen from shattering. How much would it save you? $40? $100? A lot? Well here’s the secret: Buying the right case can save your phone. This isn’t an issue of case price, or quality. It’s an issue of design, and there’s a little known aspect to look for which I will share with you that will drastically reduce the risk of you breaking your phone. Just a side note: If you really want to prevent shattering

Here’s the trick: It’s all about the lip. Some cases have it. Some cases do not. What you want on your case is a little raised edge around the screen (rubber is best). Why? When your phone falls, it will eventually land face up, or face down. If you leave the screen exposed, you drastically increase the risk of damage whenever your phone is face down, even regardless of whether it fell or not. If it’s flush with the screen, it provides no protection for the glass.

A little anecdote: I normally use a phone case with a such lip, and I’ve had my current iPhone for two years now. Not a scratch. I switched to a case without a lip for only four days to test it, and I had several large scratches on my screen protector (luckily not on the screen itself). It was so bad that my testing of that case stopped there.
