- Really stunning designs
- A must have accessory for any budding fans of fashion
- A little on the expensive side compared to other phone cases
- Snap cases may not protect your phone from a drop
Flowers, sparkles and golden trims are on this year’s agenda for the new Ted Baker Samsung S8 case range. Their cases are seemingly making waves through the mobile phone market, and there’s a very good reason for it.
They’re beautiful. The styling and even detailing, matching current fashion trends currently being pumped out by Ted Baker are wonderful. Okay, in all honesty, most of the cases are a little feminine, with the flowery pattern and the sparkly finishes, but there is a black one available for the more macho of us out there.
The cases come in three styles, similar to their AW16 range we looked at last year. Bear in mind this is the new SS17 (Spring/Summer) range we’re checking out this time round.
The first are their snap on rear cases, leaving the screen exposed, and probably the most common of cases you see on people’s shiny handsets. The second is a folio design, with enough room to put a credit card. The third, and slightly more unconventional is an armband which would be work during fitness sessions.
I’m looking at two examples today, and both seem as if they have impeccable quality. Although made from plastic, the inside of the snap case is covered in a golden finish, with a slogan “Consider yourself protected.” The only downfall about the case is that it feels very thin, not offering a huge amount of protections. Although scratches may not affect the phone, I’m not sure it’ll completely protect a handset from a drop.
The folio case we looked at was slightly different. Like a book, it wraps around the entire case. It holds the phone inside the same golden housing, but this time there is a small vanity mirror on the door part of the case. A perfect companion when eating spinach in a public place.
Pricing wise they are the more expensive side for a mobile phone case, but combining some protection for your mobile, and some wicked fashion prints, makes the extra cost is worth every penny. You can find more information and a number of different styles on the Proportia website.
