Top 5 Best Tablet Cases To Prevent Wear And Tear
Welcome to GetMojo, where we do the research so you don’t have to! In this video, we’re offering our picks for the 5 best tablet cases to prevent wear and tear.
Tech devices, like tablets, are expensive, so the idea of damaging them is worrisome. Thankfully, protective cases can help prevent the impact of drops, dings and scratches. But with tons of them for sale, which case should you buy? Well, to help you decide, we’ve sifted through numerous website and consumer reviews and identified some of the best protective cases for some of the market’s most popular tablet models. Okay, first up.
For the Apple iPad Pro 12.9
Urban Armor Gear Plasma Case
The “UAG” logo has become a well-respected symbol of ruggedness over the years, and for good reason. This case is designed to fit the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and features impact-resistant rubber bumpers that help it meet military drop-test standards. There are some convenience features built-in too, like a kickstand for propping the tablet up, and even a place to store your Apple Pencil. We really like the transparent back design of this model, which allows you to show off the iPad’s slick design.
For the Samsung Galaxy Tab A
OtterBox Defender Series Case
In terms of head-to-toe protection for your tablet, this Otterbox case, which is designed to fit the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab A, is one of the best on the market. That’s because it comes with a detachable faceplate-like cover that ensures the screen is protected, as well as the back, when not in use. Better yet, when you take this front cover off, it can be used as a vertical and horizontal stand to mount your tablet. As well as offering great all-around protection, we like this case’s understated, clean-cut design.
For the Amazon Fire HD 10
The Amazon Fire Tab is perhaps most favored by those who need it for casual streaming purposes, which makes its stylish build fitting. And designed to fit the 10.1-inch Fire HD 10 tablet, this case offers a soft, book-like, PU (or, polyurethane) leather build, which is particularly appropriate for home use. The front flap of this case allows for easy mounting too, and there’s a hand strap on the back and stylus holder on its side for added practicality. We particularly like the fact that you can choose from a variety of different colors, which gives it a more personal feel.
For the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6
Poetic Revolution Series Case
For Tab S6 users, this case has similar appeal to the Apple UAG one we mentioned earlier, with a built-in kickstand, tough exterior, and space to store a stylus. However, this case is arguably even superior, due to the fact that it also offers a built-in screen protector, and that the storage for the S-Pen is built into the body, as opposed to hanging on its side. If you like the appeal of this case for your Apple device, you’ll be glad to hear that it’s also available for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
Before we reveal our final pick, here are a few other tablet cases that you might want to consider:
Griffin Technology Survivor All-Terrain for iPad Air and iPad Pro
Soke Premium Folio Case for Samsung Galaxy Tab A
Poetic TurtleSkin Series Case for Amazon Fire HD 10
For the Apple iPad Pro 11
New Trent Full Body Rugged Case
The slightly smaller 11-inch iPad Pro 11 offers a much more manageable size for many, but that doesn’t make it any less prone to dings. Thankfully, this New Trent case offers a solid build, raised edges and a built-in screen protector for excellent safeguarding. But best of all, it has a leather hand strap on its back, which can swivel around 360 degrees, making it incredibly versatile. Even the built-in kickstand is sturdier than most, as it’s metal instead of plastic.
So which tablet case should you choose? Well, the standard of protective cases nowadays is amazing - but something you should definitely consider is whether you want a screen protector built-in. And, if you do want a screen protector, you’re best off first checking if it’s compatible with any styluses you may have.
