Finding a case for an older phone is definitely a struggle when the phone is 5 years old or older. I’ve had success with finding cases for older phones in the past, so please check out my guide below!.
This would probably be the first place to go when searching for an older phone case and might be the last place to look too. Just make sure you find the name and exact model of your smartphone and type it into Google to see if any merchants are selling that particular phone case for a cheap price. You may need to pay more for an older phone, but make sure you check the shipping price at checkout to make sure your not paying too much.
I find that this site is the place to go to find new and sometimes used cases. The problem with some cases is that some are dirty after being used for awhile, so maybe think again of buying a used one. Sometimes some sellers have no success in selling their cases, so they stay listed on eBaY for months to years. So there might be a chance at finding the case your looking for. First you want to check in the search filters if the case your looking for is available in your country. If not, look in countries that are over the border then you’ll save money on outrageous shipping fees like if your looking in Canada and order from the UK you obviously pay more for your shipping right?. So looking in the USA might be a better option.
You never know what your going to find on Amazon for phone cases for older phones, I have looked on there before and have had success with finding cases for older phones. But most of the time, eBaY is the cheapest.
Chinese brands, should you avoid them?
If all your looking for is a simple silicone case for your older phone, then don’t worry at all about quality. I always buy the see-through cases for my phones and that way I can still see what my phone looks like from the outside, but I have never had a problem with quality with weird brands from China or other countries, and usually the shipping is really cheap or even free depending on the price of the case.
