Form fitting and fashion in appearance, silicone cases and covers are the right mobile cover that fit tightly over the phone. Here are some of the benefits of silicone cases and covers for mobile phones.
The beauty of silicone is its flexibility and malleability. A rubber-like material, it can easily be molded to form and then fits tightly over the phone. Silicone is made for specific phone models for the best fit and appearance. This also ensures that holes for buttons and ports for connections and cables are in the right places. They are not bulky or heavy in any way. Silicone covers are also easy to put on and remove, making them extremely convenient. The tight fit and low profile makes silicone cases easy to slip into a pocket or small purse and carry around discreetly.
Because silicone covers can wrap around the entire phone, they can offer protection to the whole phone, and there is no need to remove any part of it to access the phone. Silicone is resilient with good shock absorption, so it can protect all parts of the phone against drops and other impact damage.
Heat and Dust Resistant
Silicone cases work well in hot temperatures, making them ideal for taking on holiday to hotter climes as well as sunny days at home. They can also be used safely in hot working environments. They do not become hot to the touch. Instead heat simply dissipates from the phone through the case. This very practical property helps to keep the phone looking sharp and new for a long time.
Silicone cases generally have good durability and are usually resistant to tears and similar damage. They are antimicrobial and many are also washable. All these factors make them reasonably long lasting.
Tactile and Anti-Slip
Silicone cases are softer than many other types of case, particularly hard plastic cases and metal cases, but also many other materials used in soft mobile covers. They are pleasant to hold and handle, with a good and comfortable grip due in part to silicone’s inherent anti-slip properties. Having a more sturdy grip can help prevent many accidents caused by dropping the phone.
Silicone cases tend to be cheaper than hard plastic cases or those made from other soft plastics such as thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), as well as more expensive materials such as leather. Most are very affordable, which appeals to those who like to mix and match their covers or change them on a frequent basis.
