    "I LOVE the pink case and the bright green case, as they add pops of colour to every outfit. From someone who drops their phone ALL the time, I can personally assure you that these cases are super durable and protect my screen. And to top it off, I really like the fact that Felony Case is a brand from Toronto so you can shop knowing you support Canadian businesses." —Liza Hicks

Plus, the holder stretches open really wide, so it'll fit any phone.

    There's a special coating on the surface to keep your device from slipping off while it's charging.

    "It's great to be able to pick my phone up while I'm lying in bed without using another hand to disconnect a cable. It's also small enough that the phone takes up most of the pad, which is good for aesthetics. Not all phones will work with wireless charging, so make sure you check compatible phones before purchasing." —Kyle Richmond

    The screen protector took all the blows and when I couldn't stand looking at the cracks on it, I just peeled it off and replaced it with a new one. My actual phone screen is still in mint condition, and I'm free to be a messy, phone-dropping klutz without dealing with the consequences.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    "I love my iPhone but I hate that I have to pick it up + point it at my face to unlock it. When the group texts come raining in during the work day, I’d like to be able to glance at them without taking the time to pick up, scroll through, and then putting it back down — my FOMO-y self needs to be sure the texts can wait until my next break for a reply! I can keep those group text updates truly ~at a glance~ — without interrupting my flow until I take a break later." — Maitland Quitmeyer
