Question

Are phone cases harmful?

by Damooster / March 30, 2013 4:23 PM PDT

Just purchased a Samsung Galaxy Grand and the instruction manual says to not cover the area where the antennae is. To me this makes sense; if the antennae is covered, it has to work harder and thus this drains the battery faster.

So my question is, are cases actually more harmful to phones?

No, it only means that your battery will drain faster. Don't read more into it.
