If you don’t want to spend $50 for a case every time you upgrade your smartphone, you still have great options: cases with comparable quality are available for much less money if you do your research. One of the best brands for that is Poetic, maker of many accessories we’ve reviewed in the past and loved, and now the company’s high quality, sub-$20 cases are available for the latest lineup of flagship Android devices including the Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 Edge Plus, the S6 Active, and the new Galaxy Note 5.
The two new cases are updated versions of well-reviewed products that Poetic had available for previous generation devices, so unlike many other affordable cases, we already know what we’re getting into in terms of quality.
The Revolution ($19.95):
Poetic Revolution ($19.95) is made for people who want rugged cases, offering ultimate front, back and corner protection. The case also includes a built-in stand that works in both portrait and landscape orientations, flaps to cover any openings, and a built-in screen protector for water resistance.
This case gives you complete protection from impacts, scratches, dust, water and more, yet it sells for just a fraction of the price of similar-looking cases from bigger manufacturers.
On the flip side of the Revolution case is the new Poetic Affinity line, a lightweight, super-thin TPU case available in a completely transparent design or clear polycarbonate with black accents (as pictured above). Unlike some of the other cases in the price range, the Affinity includes a raised front bezel for scratch protection of the device’s display, and reinforcements in each corner for superior shock protection. All this is built in without obstructing the see-through design.
The best part of the Affinity? You get a quality, attractive case for your new phone without breaking the bank.
