After all the rumors and leaks, the Samsung Galaxy S10 finally has arrived! It’s an elegant phone thanks to the stunning glass back and nearly bezel-less screen. If you're planning on picking up the Galaxy S10 and want to showcase your new Galaxy S10, you'll want to outfit it with a clear case to ensure its great looks for years to come. So, if you’re confused about which one to get between the clear case or the dark clear case, here are the comparison.
Pure Clear Case with Drop Protection
Tech21 Pure Clear case caught my attention the most thanks to its totally clear back, something which I personally like for in any case because smartphones are built beautifully; hence the beautiful design should be enjoyed. Moreover, it’s not only a clear case but also has that 10 ft drop protection you need to protect it from unwanted drops.
The design is completely clear with a solid feel at the back and a ribbed pattern at the sides. The patented ribs at the sides are to withstand shock and drops. The material of the case includes a bullet-shield material covering the case, but note that it’s not bulletproof from a shotgun. The case has slightly raised edges so that the screen never comes in contact with any sort of surface when lying face down. Camera and fingerprint cutouts are precise and neat too.
Advantages & Disadvantages
As for the advantages, the case stands out from other clear cases because of the UV yellowing features for long-lasting clarity and contains bullet-shield, a high-performing impact material. While the disadvantages include the fact that there are no port covers to protect it from dust and debris. Another downside is that clear cases tend to scratch easily and note that this clear case doesn’t come with a screen protector, so you need to get one.
Are you a clean freak? Then this is the right clear case. The Tech21 Evo Check Case has antimicrobial protection which is built to reduce microbes by up to 99.99% and always keep your case hygienically clean. The Evo check is more of a TPU style case with a flex shock and patented ribs at the sides so if you drop your phone with this case, no worries, the case will absorb impact energy and stop it from passing through your phone.
Design & Features
The design of the case includes a solid top and a loose bottom part. The cut out for the ports are neat and easy access to charging and headphone ports. The case is flexible so you can even bend it. This case is scientifically proven to protect drop until 12 ft which are pretty safe if you accidentally drop your phone. On the sides, you get the flex shock and patented ribs so if you drop your phone with this case, no worries, the case will absorb impact energy and stop it from passing through into your phone. Overall, no worries dropping it because the flex shock will absorb all the impact energy and stop it from passing through into your phone. The case is tested to work perfectly with wireless connectivity.
Advantages & Disadvantages
The advantages include the flex shock features that protects your phone from drops and shock. It’s also a flexible case that you can bend, unlike the Tech21 pure clear case which feels so durable and hard to bend. The case also has slightly raised edges which will be really safe if you drop the case screen first. One of the downsides is the fact that you can bend the case and this makes the case not as strong as the Tech21 since the Tech21 has a solid case.
OverallBoth cases have the same price, but these two cases have their own pros and cons. It depends again with your style whether you want a totally clear back or a darker case. The best feature from the Tech21 pure clear case is that it has a bullet-shield material, but it’s not actually bulletproof from a shotgun. Another best feature is the anti-yellowing formula that slow-down the case from yellowing. It’s also pretty thin and very grippy on the hand.
While the Evo check contains flex shock to protect your phone from drops and shock. It’s also a flexible case that you can bend, unlike the Tech21 pure clear case which feels so durable and hard to bend. The highest drop protection goes to the Evo check which is 12 ft drop protection while the pure clear is 10 ft drop protection. Both cases have the same thickness which is 1.6 mm for both cases. Both cases also have slightly raised edges which will be safe if you drop the case screen first. Both also work well with wireless charging.
In conclusion, the Tech21 Pure Crystal Clear Bullet Shield Case is worth it for those of you looking for a clear case for entirely showcasing your Galaxy S10 with 10 ft drop protection but if you're really concern about germs and want more of a relaxed case, The Evo Check comes with a flexible case with Antimicrobial protection.
