This is what can happen when your kids get hold of your phone.
I’m sure many parents with smart devices have had kids throwing their phones onto the floor, flushed into the toilet or damaged in ways which only a baby or toddler can imagine.
Thanks to a costly phone replacement ($380 in case you’re wondering) I am now paranoid about my kids breaking the phone. Luckily this time I was given the opportunity to road-test a Tech21 iPhone 5 Impact Trio case, a Tech21 clear iPhone 5 case and their impact shield protector.
Tech21 are a UK company that make smartphone or tablet cases and screen protectors. Their products are particularly useful for parents due to the durability they offer – apparently almost 80% of people drop their phone or tablet 3 times a month.
What’s great about the Tech21 cases is that they have powerful D3O impact absorbing polymers (used by the military) to protect your devices. Likewise the Tech21 Impact Shield screen protector (which is bundled with the cases) offers a BulletShield layer to reduce impact forces by 80 % – eliminating costly screen replacement.
I also like the bright colours of the Tech21 iPhone 5 Impact Trio case in particular as I’m often digging around in my bag trying to find my phone, or getting my black/white phone mixed up with other people’s monochrome phones.
Tech21 products are widely available from Apple and Vodafone stores and they’d make a great gift for technology-toting parents.
