I never thought I will buy a case to protect my iPhone from scuffs and scratches. I expected Apple, being Apple, to at least use high grade metal to build the iPhone. I thought Apple claimed, something about coating the glass with some revolutionary chemical that will protect the glass from cracking.
During my outdoor camp I dropped my iPhone on the stone tiles. It wasn’t dropped from waist high height. Rather it was dropped from a height not more than 5 inches away from the ground. I was careless. I left my iPhone clinging precariously for its novelty in my shallow and almost useless pocket. It was the last day of the 3 days camp and I’m almost going to make it out with my phone on its tip top condition as it should be.
How unfortunate. This utterly expensive but incredible phone has finally met its fate that many other iPhones without a case has always been bounded to. The bottom glass at its back has a small crack. The chamfers, both the top left and the bottom right, has scuffs. Its novelty was gone.
Should I be pissed that this phone is feeble, or should I blame myself for not following the ubiquitous trend of matching a case with the iPhone during the purchase? Well. I don’t know. I guess I’ll do what adults do: to circumvent. I decided to buy a phone case, one that can lock this horrifying experience at the back of it and seal it away.
I got myself an Elago S5 Outfit and I have to say, I’m really impressed by the looks of it. I’m also impressed by the inordinate pricing as well. It’s ridiculously expensive, and I don’t know why it has to be. But I just had to get it, I was too enticed.
It looks so good. Doesn’t it? SOOO… Good.
Merry Christmas everyone!
