Different Types of Phone Cases and Their Purpose

Did you know Ghostek offers high-tech phone cases for all models of phones? This means you can expect to find an iPhone XS wallet case or a Galaxy S10 waterproof case, all in one location.

This blog post will go into detail about the different types of smartphone covers currently available. Whether you are in need of a mobile rugged case or an S10 Plus clear silicone case, the information below outlines the products you can choose from.

The Standard Smartphone Accessory

Mobile phones have become one of the most widely used communication devices today. As upgrades continue to roll-out staying current on the best safeguards will keep your smartphone in excellent condition.

Over three-quarters of smartphone users typically use outerwear protection for their tech. If you haven’t considered it, the following are several reasons why most consumers chose to invest in a case.

Damage Prevention

Accidental drops can lead to cracked or shattered screens and/or scratched-up, broken backings. There are several levels of protection people tend to explore when shopping around for a tough cover.

Practical vs. Rugged

Crowds more interested in getting basic protective covers often keep overall cost in mind. However, that doesn’t mean quality has to suffer.

The two options below offer military-grade features to exceed anyone’s expectations.

A prime choice for people interested in practicality would be the S10 shockproof case Cloak series. Built with a durable thermoplastic fusion mold, you can expect cutting-edge shock protection from drops as high as two meters.

If you are an Apple user, an iPhone XS Aluminum Case like the Atomic Slim will meet your criteria for extreme sturdiness. The frame is constructed of ultra-tough aluminum alloy, raised rubber corners, and a polycarbonate transparent backing. The dual-layer build delivers industrial strength and the lifted bezel provides extra screen protection.


When the style is a priority, the Ariel is an iPhone XS glitter case worth a closer look. Just because finding a fashionable cover is paramount, doesn’t mean you should get one that neglects to protect the phone from daily use. Ghostek’s eye-catching colorful designs are more than just presentation.

The Ariel series features enhanced shock absorption, a scratch-resistant back, and a raised bezel to protect the touchscreen. The glossy mermaid scale print and infused flowing liquid glitter comes in blue, purple, or orange.

If a more sophisticated look is preferred, Ghostek’s wallet cases are available for the iPhone X, XS, XS Max, and XR as well as the Galaxy S10, S10e, and S10+. The Exec, for instance, features a leather pocket with 4-way stretch fabric. It’s auto-adjustable and capable of fitting more cards. The TPU frame adds drop protection while the raised bezel lends the screen and camera extra security.
