Summer is here again, and quite a few of you have asked me for my thoughts on the best smartphone case for the beach.
The beach is a harsh place for a smartphone. All that sand, water, and salt spray, any of which can wreak your smartphone. Then there are rocks that can put an impressive scratch on your screen in no time at all.
You might love the beach, but your smartphone doesn't.
Cases such as LifeProof are great, but for beach use I see a few issues:
In my experience, a far better alternative to a case is a drybag for your smartphone that features a clear panel so you can still use the phone. Another advantage of a drybag is that they are easy to clean when you're done, and they fit a variety of devices (so you don't have to buy a new bag when you get a new smartphone).
There are a number of good brands available, one such brand being Kona. these drybags are made of tough PVC and waterproof to 100 feet. They're also big enough for your credit card, cash, and car keys too.
And the nice thing is that you can pick up one of these drybags for about $10.
