Tech21 drops new case collection for stoppage of damaging Note 8 droppage


With the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ the most easily damaged smartphones of all time if dropped, buying a Note 8 case and glass screen protector is essential to avoid accidental damage from accidental droppage.

Don’t be a dropkick this smartphone season – it’s time for you to eschew going technologically nude, and it’s time to sink your teeth into some solid case and screen protection, no matter which smartphone you buy!

One of the best and most well-known case and screen protection companies is Tech21, and while there are certainly other notable brands out there, Tech21 has built-up a solid reputation for solid protection.

Promising protection “drop after drop”, Tech 21 has announced its new collection of “innovative cases and screen shields for the Samsung Galaxy Note8, made of unique, patented impact protection materials that guarantee the most effective drop protection on the market.”

You see, no matter how sound you are of body, mind and spirit, no matter how tight your grip, it’s still easy for some drongo of a drip to accidentally barrel into you while you’re walking in a shopping centre, or anywhere you might be, and accidentally cause you to drop your phone.

Although phones keep on boasting of ever more advanced Gorilla Glass, and other case innovations, the reality is that only a proper protective case can truly protect your phone from the kind of screen breakage that can make at least some grown men cry, especially in the knowledge that screen replacements are usually in the order of hundreds and hundreds of dollars.

And, while Samsung is offering one free screen replacement with its Note 8, why take the chance, why be without your Note 8 while it is being repaired, why go through the risk of your phone ending up in someone else’s hands with all your data on it, even if you have put in password protective measures?

Or even risk getting your phone back with everything wiped, and you having conveniently forgotten to set up a photo backup or other back-up measures to keep your data either safely on your computer, safely in the cloud, or both?

So, it should come as no surprise to see Tech21 proudly boast that its products are designed to protect, “drop after drop".

The company says it does this by using “scientifically proven impact materials, innovative design and a rigorous testing methodology developed in partnership with the National Physical Laboratory".

On that note, Tech21 explains that the UK’s National Physical Laboratory is “the national measurement standards laboratory for the UK, and globally recognised as the leader in its field at the forefront of testing methodology. Working in partnership with NPL, Tech21 has built cutting edge equipment, a unique testing methodology and formed a team of highly skilled scientists – to deliver a more advanced testing proposition in a new R&D facility".

Part of that current methodology sees its cases “drop tested 20 times to ensure durability and long lasting protection able to withstand the multiple drops that occur in the everyday use of a smartphone".

Tech21 also uses protection systems “such as BulletShield, an impact material used in bulletproof glass, and FlexShock, an impact absorbing material unique to tech21 that provides drop protection of up to three metres” in the new Note 8 protection collection, which it says “enhances the sleek design of the Note8 while providing superior protection drop after drop".

On top of all that, Tech21 proudly boasts of being a “trusted Designed for Samsung partner”, which means it “works in collaboration with Samsung to meticulously design each product with care, working in partnership right from the start".

This means each case is “designed to allow the Note8 to shine with easy access to ports and function buttons and no interference with Wi-Fi, mobile networks, Bluetooth or features such as NFC".

Colin Woodward, Tech21 chief marketing officer, said: “We now use our phones to capture everything that we do in our lives, so protection is more important than ever.

“Note8 is a stunning handset, and we know that people won’t want to cover up its looks. But unfortunately, everyone will drop their phone, likely over and over again. With our pioneering impact protection, this new range of cases will ensure the best possible protection drop after drop, so Note8 owners can enjoy living their lives with their phone by their sides without worrying about the consequences.”
