Can a Phone Case Provide Protection without Adding Bulk?

Author Melissa Hau

When it comes to protecting your phone, you want the most durable case possible for total confidence. While there are plenty of cases that offer maximum protection, they often come with a little bit of added bulk. When most people think of a super durable case, they picture something thick, big, and impossible to shove in their pocket. There are slimmer cases on the market, but they usually compromise on protection in order to achieve their slimmer profile. Can a phone case provide protection without adding bulk? Is it possible to have both reliable protection and a case free from excessive bulkiness? Let’s take a closer look and find out.

Why do the sturdier cases have more bulk in the first place? The main reason a case will have more bulk is because of a dual layer design. The bulkier models will typically have a polycarbonate shell for the outer layer and a TPU rubberized interior layer. These two elements work together to offer total protection from shocks, falls, and other impacts. They can also get quite bulky in design.

There are other options on the market to give you adequate protection from damage without the extra bulk in design. Here are a few great options which offer high levels of protection in a sleeker style for those looking for the best of both worlds:

  1. The UB Style

When looking for reliable protection in a sleek style sure to please, the Unicorn Beetle Style is a great choice. Made with durable material in a single layer design, this option offers an elevated bezel which protects your phone screen from face-down drops. The case back also protects your phone from scratches and scuffs experienced in day-to-day life. It provides simple access to all phone buttons and functions as well so it makes it easier to use your device. It has a slim profile perfect for those looking to avoid bulk without losing out on the protection they need to safeguard their device.

  1. The UB Metro

Another stylish choice in a sleek style, the Unicorn Beetle Metro offers a single layer design with the added benefit of TPU as part of the design. TPU is an incredibly durable material capable of absorbing the toughest impacts to safeguard your device from shocks. A bulkier case would use TPU as an inner layer or cushioned corners, but this slender option uses TPU bumpers at the bottom which achieve the same effect to a slightly lesser effect. The bumpers absorb the shocks and impacts from drops, falls, or other accidents to safeguard the phone. The case also has other elements of high-quality protection such as raised bezels which guard screen and lenses from damages. It also has precise cutouts for easy access to ports, responsive buttons, and wireless charging enabled.
