iPhone X and newer screens do scratch waaaaay easier than previous gens.

and the glass screen protectors are worlds apart from the old plastic ones.

I use a case to give my phone extra thickness and grip not just to protect it. iPhones are too slippery for my hands

I don’t use a screen protector, but my favorite case by far is the Veil XT from Caudabe. I only use it for the extra grip, as the X/XS is a bit more slick in my hand.

I’ve never used any sort of case for shock resistance, and have never cracked a phone or screen.

Why would you want to? Just use a thin case and keep it nice. None of these are immune to scrapes and scratches.


Keep it nice for what? To never use as it was designed and intended? Guess I have a bit of fatigue on that stuff.


But yeah - I know know if I smash it I will prolly be singing a different tune.

The nice thing about that sofa is that you can go straight from the Twister board to the sofa, without worry about the Crisco staining the fabric.

Find the positive.
