If You're Going to Use an iPhone Case, It Might as Well Come With Insurance

By Mario Aguilar on at

Why would you ruin the iPhone's immaculate design? Well, turns out those luscious chamfered edges are of this world after all: They scratch, just like any other phone. OK, fine maybe we were wrong and you need a case. But if you're going armour your iPhone, at least use case that actually guarantees it will protect your phone.

Here you have it, the return of the mighty Cellhelmet.

Sure, the iPhone 5 Cellhelmet costs 35 quid, but that's a £35 insurance policy for much of the bad stuff that can happen to your phone. As with the Cellhelmets of yore, the company provides accidental damage coverage for everything excluding scratches to the aluminium and water damage. That means if you drop your precious new iPhone 5 and the screen shatters, Cellhelmet will cover the cost of a new one.

Not a bad deal! We especially like that, as cases go, the Cellhelmet isn't a gaudy monstrosity. The subtle protection is available for pre-order now. [Cellhelmet]
