Time for another Tech Tuesday! Today, I am going to talk about what is actually a tech accessory, but is something I can’t live without when spending time in the hospital. I didn’t realize how handy a wallet phone case would be until a few months after starting my clinical rotations last year.
When on hospital rounds or running between surgeries, you often only have a short period of time to go get a snack or grab lunch. And oftentimes when you are cleared to go on a break, you are in a completely different part of the hospital than where you started the day and stored your backpack and potentially your wallet. I found myself wasting so much time running back to get my wallet and then back downstairs to the cafeteria, but it was also impossible to carry my wallet around all day with me. So, I took the advice of many residents and other students who had started carrying their ID and credit cards with them in a wallet phone case. We are all never without our phones and now I could easily take all of my essentials with me and not have to carry around a bunch of extra things.
Of course, wallet phone cases come in a variety of styles. For me, I was pretty picky about what I wanted. I didn’t want one with a cover flap because I thought it would make an extra step to see my phone screen. I also didn’t want anything too bulky. For safety concerns, I didn’t want it to be too obvious that I had my ID and cards inside my case. I wanted something that was a bit more discreet. After much research, I found one that I thought would work best. It’s the Spigen Card Holder Protective Wallet Case for iPhone 6 Plus. This case has a sliding trap door in the back that can hold 2-3 cards. So far, this case has held up well and definitely has come in handy. It comes in several different colors and different phone sizes.
Other case models that I looked at where this Caseguru Wallet Case and this EYN case. The EYN case is a lot thicker than the other two but this also means that it can hold more, including cash and other smaller items.
