Protect Your iPhone 8 With Cases and Covers
The Apple iPhone 8 is a sophisticated smartphone that puts the power of a computer in the palm of your hand. Like any handheld device, it is at risk of drops, bangs, and scratches. An iPhone 8 phone case easily found on eBay is an excellent way to protect your investment and be able to enjoy your Apple device for many years to come.Which iPhone 8 phone cases are available?
There is a range of new and pre-owned iPhone 8 case styles available. Each style has its advantages. Keep in mind that iPhone 8 cover types can vary from one manufacturer to the next, but here are a few of the most common styles:
- Bumper cases are streamlined to provide maximum protection with minimal disruption to the user experience.
- Flip cases fold over like a book so that the screen is always protected when not in use.
- Wallet iPhone 8 cases are similar to flip cases but provide wallet-like features, such as credit card slots.
- Battery cases let you expand the battery capacity of your iPhone 8 for more battery life.
- Clip cases have a belt attachment and often emphasise ruggedness over usability.
Not every iPhone 8 case on eBay will have the same dimensions and configuration. This is due to the different models available. The core iPhone 8 measures 138.4 by 67.3 by 7.3 millimetres. The iPhone 8 Plus, on the other hand, measures 158.4 by 78.1 by 7.5 millimetres, so the cases are a bit larger. There is also the matter of the iPhone X. An iPhone 8 X case will have the same dimensions of an iPhone 8 case, but the camera lens window will have a different orientation. Some manufacturers make cases that support both the iPhone 8 and X, while others offer a unique case for each model.Essentials to look for in iPhone 8 cases
There are five main factors to consider before choosing a case:
- Weight - The weight of the case you choose will add to the base phone weight of 148 grams.
- Screen protection - Does the case include screen protection? Will you need to purchase a screen protector separately?
- Case thickness - Case thickness can interfere with wireless charging. The thickness of the phone itself is not a factor.
- Impact resistance - The common impact resistance of about 2 metres is generally enough protection for the average user.
- Water resistance - The phone itself is rated at IP67.
