Always Have A Cover

I continued to use my old phone because I refused to take my new one out of the house.  I always have a case and a screen cover.  There used to be plastic screen covers.  The place I order my cases from used to include a few screen covers in every case purchase.  So I had a handful.  They would get scratched and I would plan on putting a new one on, but it was kind of pain, I didn’t do it very often.  The iPhone 5 had a known issue of the sleep button failing, but for some reason my phone wasn’t covered in the free fix, so after about a year of not being able to sleep my phone I went to have it fixed.  They didn’t fix it properly the first time so when I went back the second time the owner threw in a new screen cover.  It was glass.  It was so pretty.  It made my screen look great.  Granted, I had needed a new one, but was going to change it after I had taken my phone in.  So the one that he replaced was all scratched and worn.  So just having a new one was a huge improvement, but the glass one was really great.  So when I got my new phone, I ordered some glass screen covers with my cases.

This last one that broke I barely noticed it even though it was a much larger crack – all the way across the screen – it was just where it was, I guess.  This time I had faith that it was the cover that cracked.  But I looked close to see that the crack was just in the middle – where the cover is – and not all the way to the edges.  So that assured me that it was just the cover.  But it looked like an impact crack . . . which I couldn’t figure out.  There was a little spot near the side where it looked like something hit the screen then a crack going across the phone, a crack going up, a crack going down to the closest edge, and two separate cracks going across to the closest edge.  It was odd.

I am always so grateful that I have a case and a cover because I believe that both have saved my phone from actually breaking a multitude of times.  Besides the fact that I like to have a pretty cover.

Do you have a case and/or a screen cover for your phone?  Do you feel that they have help protect your phone?
