Mobile technology has developed at an astonishing rate over the last 10 years or so. Phones now feature high-spec cameras, web browsers and an abundance of apps as standard. They are more powerful than ever before; every technical element of the phone has developed exponentially…
That is of course, apart from your signal. Signals are largely dependent on your location, i.e. how close you are to your network providers’ telephone mast. But one element that people often forget about when wondering why they are lacking a signal is their phone case.
Your Phone Case Could be Damaging Your Signal
iPhone’s, as an example, are extremely costly. They are designed with a wonderful glass exterior, which looks great… but it’s not exactly shock proof. If you haven’t done it yourself, I’m sure you’ll have a friend that has managed to drop their iPhone in one way or another, and has shattered their screen wonderfully. Obviously therefore, it is of paramount importance that you have a case to protect your prized possession, to at least give it a fighting chance in case of a ‘drop’.
The iPhone phone case market is massive – seriously huge. Most cases are intent with coming up with a cool, funky design that makes your iPhone look quirky and interesting. However these cases are naïve to the harm they are doing to your phone signal – often covering your interior antennae, which picks up the signal, making your phone work harder (whilst diminishing your battery) for poor signal results.
A Signal-Boosting iPhone Cases
A phone case has though been developed though by Pong Research, who have managed to create a case that improves signal strength by up to 46% by creating efficient antenna performance which also increases talk-time battery life.
These impressive cases from Pong aren’t ugly either, they feature a sleek, minimalist design that suits the iPhone down to the ground, whilst also protecting your iPhone from any dangerous drops that may occur. As well as this, these Pong cases also reduce radiation exposure from the iPhone by up to 91%. You can find out more about Anti-Radiation iPhone cases by Pong here.
