I hate smartphone cases. Hate, hate, hate. They are indeed a necessary evil for many users, since protecting one’s investment of several hundred dollars is obviously a smart move. But smartphone makers spend thousands of man hours and millions of dollars in their efforts to make these devices thin and gorgeous… and then we cover them up with hideous, bulky cases built out of $1 or $2 worth of gross plastic. It’s a crime.
Personally, I never put cases on my phones. I just can’t stomach it. As readers who have read my reviews in the past are well aware, I value design far too much to cover up all these great looking phones with some flimsy plastic. I would rather enjoy my phone and roll the dice.
It comes as something of a surprise, then, that I am actually considering slapping a case on the most gorgeous smartphone ever created.
