I Drop My Phone Too Much

I drop my phone a lot. I used to think I didn't and that I was really careful with my phone, but then I got to thinking about it, and I realized I did a lot. Just little drops that weren't too bad, but I've dropped my phone badly enough to crack the screen three times now, and I decided enough was enough.

I never wanted a case on my phone because I've never liked the added bulk and I've never thought I needed one. But after I had to spend $60 to get a replacement screen and install it, I decided I didn't want to deal with that again.

I have an LG G3 and I really really love it. But it's kind of big and the back is kind of rounded and scalloped and so I was worried that a case would be super bulky and annoying.  But I found a sweet slim case with a nice matte finish, and I even got to customize the case myself and add my own image to it. I chose to go with a classic Blackface Fender Deluxe Reverb amp shape - I had to do some Photoshopping to get the size right because the Deluxe Reverb head version was too short and the combo version was too tall, and the tolex looked weird so I had to use some of the magical content-aware fill in Photoshop to get the marbled tolex texture around the outside. But check it out!

It fits my phone well, doesn't add a lot of bulk, has a sweet little lip on the outside so the screen doesn't scratch on flat surfaces, and looks awesome. Plus it was cheap and shipped fast. I got it from www.case-custom.com

I'm now a believer in phone cases. At least for the foreseeable future.
