Case and or Shield from tech21 

While everyone talks about phone cases in most occasions these leave the screen vulnerable to damage, so you need protection for both the back and the front of your SmartPhone. I have recently looked at the Nokia ‘Microsoft’ Lumia 950 and here some protection for it.

This ultra-thin "featherweight" back fits over the phone protecting it from the knocks and drops without adding much to the weight. The actual weight increase is around 30grams.

As this case is made specifically for this phone the charge point on the base, the four buttons on the right side, the headphone port on the top and the area around the camera and LED flash on the back are all clear and not in any way obstructed. In fact the benefit is that drop it on its back, sides or corners and you should be fine.

When you look at the semi-transparent flexible material off the SmartPhone you can see like a very thin mesh made up of crossed patterns which help to disperse any shock across the whole case and thus lessening the impact on a single part of the unit. This is the secret of this case as most plain cases just cover the back of the phone this technology which they call "FlexShock" stops the force passing through the case and instead disperses it around the case thus lessening any impact to a particular area.

So with the case attached the back, the sides and the edges should be protected and even the front should it land flat as the case extends by 4mm over the front of the phone.

The tech21 Evo Check case for Nokia "Microsoft" Lumia 950 is available from the link below for £31.99 with free delivery.

Impact Shield: Self Heal from tech21

If you go to the expense of protecting the back and sides why not the face as well and this clear shield should minimise the impact when your phone drops face down onto a non-smooth surface.

Just look around you on your way to work how many phones do you see every day with cracked faces, remember you only see the ones that are still working. The others are in a drawer or bin.

The technology developed by BASF called "BulletShield" is the centre of three layers to disperse the force of the impact much like what the case above does for the rest of the SmartPhone.

This skin from tech21 is made up of three layers. The hard top layer spreads the impact force so it"s less like to pierce the skin. The second layer which was developed by BASF absorbs the impact. Leaving the soft third layer to further slowdown and absorb the impact.  

Full instructions on how to attach the skin to your SmartPhone are on the box and it is stated not to impair the optical clarity.

The Impact Shield: Self Heal from tech21 is available from the link below for £24.95
