The Best Smartphone Cases: DryCase for HTC One

My girlfriend is looking for a new phone, and she’ll be using it outdoors a lot this summer. Which one has the most protective case available?

A:DUNK PROTECTION

Like the Samsung, the HTC One hasn’t been on the market long enough for a dedicated waterproof case. But DryCase’s bag allows your phone to go deeper underwater than any protective shell would. It’s been tested to 100 feet for one hour, and you can still operate the touchscreen, take photos, and listen to music through headphones. What makes the DryCase so effective is a one-way valve on the side that you use to pump out all the air. (It comes with its own hand pump and arm band.)

Price: $40
