Sometimes you may end up buying accessories for your gadgets for style and aesthetic reasons, but their utility may extend far beyond that. I bought a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 last month after exchanging my three year old tab, which became quite sluggish. As a freelancing photographer, I have to travel to lots of places and cover various events on short notice.
A tablet helps me shoot images and add captions on the move before I submit them. I wanted a stylish yet rugged cover for my Galaxy Note 8. After comparing a few cases online, the Ghostek Galaxy Note 8 Rugged Heavy Duty Case (Atomic Slim Series) caught my fancy.
I was mostly attracted by its svelte build and stylish appearance, but later I found out it is way more durable than what it looks. Just a few weeks back, I got an assignment to cover an automobile exhibition outside the city. Hey, the economy is looking bright with these lower taxes.
It was a big event where some of the hyped solar and electric car models were going to be showcased. From the time the ads came on, the web was abuzz with speculation regarding stuffs to be shown at the event.
I had plans to spend a whole day at the fair venue and cover as much as possible. However, little did I have any idea about the mayhem that was about to happen there. I was taking snaps and jotting down notes using the S pen in my Note 8 from time to time.
Suddenly, I heard a huge noise followed by a stampede of people. It was near impossible to figure out what was happening. Still, I could see smoke billowing from a tent. It was a fire breakout then. The lights started malfunctioning and in the hustle my Galaxy Note was dropped by me and kicked around on the ground. It took me a while to gather myself and get rid of the chaotic situation.
I somehow managed to grab the device and reach a gate. Soon, fire fighters came and the fire was doused. Lights started functioning again. I was both glad and amazed to find there was not a single scratch on my Galaxy Note 8. This was possible because of the strong armor of this case that absorbed all the impacts of the drops as if this modern phone was as tough as anything the military would use.
I covered the event without any problem because of how robust my phone’s case is and returned home with a relaxed mindset.
