4 cool phone cases just for Android users

We know that there are a lot of iPhone apps and accessories out on the market and sometimes Android users may get a little bitter over the lack of attention their equally smart smartphones are getting. (We know! We see your posts on Facebook!)

It’s true that the accessory market is focused more on the huge number of consumers who own Apple devices, but more and more Android-focused gadgets and accessories are becoming available and we’re always looking out for the cool ones for you.

Verizon High Gloss 
Shiny, pretty, bright. These high-gloss cases are fun, and come in pink, blue (above), purple and black. With basic protection for your phone, they’re more a colorful accessory than anything else. Go on, get the hot pink. ($19.99)

Garden Damask 
For a totally unique statement, check out this Etsy case from The Meow Designs. It’s a beautiful, handmade cover for your Droid that includes thoughtful extras like a Velcro flap, a pocket for a credit card, and a swivel ring to attach to your diaper bag. ($27.99)

OtterBox Defender
If you have apps on your phone that your kids use, it’s a good idea to get the best protective case possible. In a split second, the phone can drop through those little pudgy hands and then it’s time to say bye-bye to Mr. Droid. OtterBox, made from three layers of silicone, offers serious protection from any bump or drop. ($49.95)


Sena Ultraslim
The Sena Ultraslim made of genuine leather is very chic. These lightweight cases add European flair to your Droid. And you can be extra fancy when you slide your phone out of the top and slide it back in when you’re done. There are 12 beautiful colors to choose from–gold leather, anyone? ($29.99) -Jeana

    Nice case line up! I’ve got a Droid 2 that I love but so far the cases are rather boring in design & high in price.The Meow Designs case looks beautiful & really affordable!
