Case helps to save your phone, save the planet, save the deductible.
As I upgrade to the latest iPhone model each year, I often question the value/price of the device. I promised myself that this cycle would be different and that I would likely hold off one additional year. This promise lasts at least until the September/October release event when the new iPhone finds itself in my shopping cart.

The rear panel provided the atom studios logo, product name, QR code, silicone/metal shell information, and six product defining options: 1. Sustainable/Recycled/Durable materials. 2. Real Life Drop Testing. 3. MagSafe…
