If you asked 100 women what the most important item they carried around in their handbag every single day was, I’m guessing (at least) 99 would say their mobile phone. Smart phones are such an important part of our lives, we use them to shop, to book tickets, to take photographs, to text, Snapchat, Whatsapp and play games. Sometimes, we even use them to call people on. Our phones contain ticket information, our banking, our photographs and videos, they do the job that used to be done by cameras, diaries, trips to the bank and a whole lot more. Sites like the Mobile Network Guide have become invaluable for news and reviews, as well as contact numbers for our networks. Frankly, losing a phone these days is like losing an arm or a leg.
Which is why we need to treat our phones with a little bit of love and respect. I was always happy to just throw my phone into my bag, and ended up cracking a few screens just doing this. Our new phones can do so much, but this makes them fragile and so much easier to break than the ‘brick’ style machines we used to use. That is why cases and holders have become so important, and as much a fashion accessory as your handbag.
Just a quick glance at the Selfridges website shows you that you can buy a case from most of your favourite designers, from Michael Kors and Kate Spade, to cool high street and cult designer efforts from Ted Baker and Skinny Dip London. There are a great mixture of hard cases that fit onto the back of your phone, or leather and plastic cases to actually hold the phone.
If your phone is an integral part of your life, and one you couldn’t do without, then treating it to a special case is definitely money well spent.
