Protect Your iPhone From Expensive Drops with KX, KXs

As we’ve showed you in the past, there are plenty of ways to break your iPhone. Admittedly, some ways are more common than others (most people tend to text while walking slightly more than they breakdance).

So how exactly are people breaking their iPhones? SquareTrade released some statistics on how the devices have been meeting their premature demise over the years. They’ve confirmed our rampant walking-and-texting habit by finding the No. 1 reason to be the iPhone “fell out of my hand”. (We have yet to confirm where “fell out of my wind turbine” ranks.) And 24 percent of owners either had their iPhone fall from their lap or knocked from the table. This is a significant portion of accidents, but these kinds of things just happen.

A separate study by illustrates the top reasons why these broken iPhone screens are often left unfixed:


Of course, all of these reasons are understandable. After all, fixing an iPhone can be very expensive. But with proper protection, you don’t need to end up with a busted iPhone in the first place!

With the NuGuard KX line, you can get 360 degrees of protection for your iPhone 4/4S/5/5S/5C models. Our KX cases use state-of-the-art X-Orbing gel technology to absorb and evenly distribute kinetic energy and are Mil-Spec drop test certified by Quanta Laboratories to MIL-STD-810G U.S. Military Standard for elite protection while maintaining a slim profile. And to protect that gorgeous Retina display, our KXs screen protector is hammer-hit tough with a “3H” hardness scale rating, and can also self-heal from minor impact dents.

A small investment in the KX and KXs will go a long way in not only saving you the heartache of a busted iPhone, but also in saving you the time and money required to fix your iPhone. And if you’re a walking-and-texting owner of the Samsung Galaxy S4, weve got you covered, too. According to SquareTrade, the Galaxy S4 is rated as 7/10 or “dangerous” on the breakable scale, so get your phone wrapped up in x-treme protection today!
