I have a nasty habit of dropping my phone. In the past I have had an iPhone which I could adequately cover up the corner of the screen with a lifeproof case. I'm trying to find a similar case to cover it a good portion of the edge where the crack is most visible.

I do know that it is quite simple to replace the screen. I will be doing that in the future. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Instead of spending money on a case that you don't want , you have to options :

1- Get a new screen replacement for 100 $ .
2- Get a glass screen protector for 15 $ , It would probably cover that crack .

You can get a case like diztronic matte black or spigen neo hybrid to cover that crack if that's what you need .

Fair enough. Thanks for the response.

I probably should just hold off until it is time to replace the screen.

Ballistic sg will cover the corners of the screen.
