phone case companies to avoid.

Postby reno » Sun Nov 24, 2019 10:39 am

bought a Zizo case for my Galaxy S10 back on April 18, 2019 . it claims to have a 1 year warranty. in the last 2 -3 weeks the belt clip started to fail. I went online to the company's web site .i fill in all the required paperwork and a photo . they never responded to my request after a 2 week wait . i went on amazon were i bought the case from . wow in less then 4 hours im contacted by email. asked to fill out the paperwork again and guess what they replied this time. but they say im one month over on the warranty .but they give me 1/2 off on a new case .--- what bullshit is this . i agree and they send me a code for 1/2 off . (im kind of stuck between a rock and hard place) turn out the code only good for the back of the case with the clip attached to it. and it cost me as seen below. the whole case cost me $17.99 new shipped- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NP ... UTF8&psc=1

what BS and never will deal with Zizo for a phone case again. Otter stand behind there cases and warranty they do charge shipping sometime but not always -found this out with my old phone . and yes Im ruff on cases:)

I swear by Spigen cases. Rugged like Otter, but without the bulk.

I have dropped my Pixel 3 XL a half dozen times on tile and concrete. Sometimes on it's face, and sometimes on it's edge. Never damaged it.

They make a variety of thicknesses. Mine is on the thinner side.

I don't use a screen protector. Never liked them.

+1 for Spigen. I've had a couple of them. They fit well and have protected all my Pixel phones.

+1 for Spigen too! I've been using their cases for years with my Pixel phones and I've never had any issues.

my problem is it has to have a belt clip. The case has to be sturdy/rugged because i'm always banging the phone.

I unexpectedly found that Magpul (gun accessory parts manufacturer) cases are great.
