Show off your phone with the latest smartphone cases

You spent a lot of money on that new smartphone, so it makes sense to protect it from scrapes and scratches by buying yourself one of the countless smartphone cases available right now. Not only will you keep the phone safe from any accidental falls, but it will also keep your screen free of the wear and tear associated with everyday use, so should you ever decide to sell it on when you find an even better phone to upgrade to, you can be certain that you'll get the best price you possibly can.

There are a huge number of retailers out there who carry smartphone cases, from stalls in shopping centres to huge national retail chains. Deciding on the right case for you is very much down to personal preference. There are an almost endless number of variations available out there right now, ranging from cases showing the colours of the most popular football teams and bands, to famous designer brands, right down to unique abstract designs that will really show your personality.

How much you are going to spend for a case really depends on the make and model you have. The more popular phones like Apple's iPhone seem to be the most common ones to find cases at knock down prices for. The real trick is finding the balance between price and quality. Often when you buy from a trader operating from a stall on the street or at a market, you can't be sure as to whether or not the item is legitimate or a well made counterfeit. This isn't an issue for some people, but there are plenty who prefer the real thing, should they have any problems with it down the line.

All major phone retailers will stock only official products, so you can be sure that your money is going to the real license holders and copyright owners. In terms of variety, the best place to find yourself a new cover would be The Carphone Warehouse at any of its 800 plus locations throughout the UK.

If you don't have one nearby, you can also check out the official store for your mobile network, as these will also carry a large variety of officially licensed covers.
