If your job keeps you out and about enough that you're not really a desk jockey—or you have a friend or family member who has a very physical job—you would probably like to have a much tougher cell-phone case than is sold to the general public, at least in the United States.
My husband, Ed, is a cabinetmaker who is always on his feet and wears his cell phone on a belt clip. But with the wimpy cell-phone cases that most cell-phone stores sell, his poor phone was pretty much unprotected when it was perpetually knocked against workbenches and other hard surfaces, which can shorten a phone's life considerably. He wears through those cheapo covers faster than small children outgrow clothing. So I searched online and found a web site that sells the kind of cell-phone cases that police officers, firefighters, and other really physical workers like to use.
Yes, the site is ugly, but it sells good items. Ed bought the Amorcase-SP1 (enlargeable photos here) for his small LG flip phone that he'd bought through Verizon. It's heavy-duty nylon, and the belt clip on the back side is very heavy duty. He's happy with it.
Ed is not affiliated with the company and neither am I. He's just a satisfied customer, and I'm just passing along potentially helpful info.
