Last Saturday, at the Main Street Fun Fair, my phone and I had the ride of our lives. But no, I wasn’t riding a roller coaster, nor was I zoom down a zip line. Actually, I was on a merry-go-round. And, thanks to my Atomic Slim case from Ghostek, my Galaxy S9 survived the ride without so much as a scratch.
My two kids, ages 3 and 6, are obsessed with merry-go-rounds. They always argue about which animal they’re going to ride and whose animal is going to fly higher, but they just can’t get enough. The Main Street Fun Fair merry-go-round is the best of the best, so naturally, they wanted to ride as many times as they could. I bought a ream of tickets and let them go crazy: we rode all the rides at the fair and ate all the cotton candy we could stomach.
Just before we left for the day, they begged for one more ride on the merry-go-round. I relented, and they raced off in front of me to snag their favorite horses. I hopped on too and stood between them. Within seconds, the carnival music started and the ride began to move.
My six-year-old asked for my phone to take a video. I handed him the Galaxy S9 and he happily started filming his horse and his little brother. After a few moments, he got bored and decided to give the phone back to me. But just as he reached out his hand, his horse moved upwards, and his hand was out of reach. The phone slipped from his grip, tumbled to the ground, and bounced off of the merry-go-round. “Uh oh,” he said. (I reassured him that there was nothing to worry about… thanks to my Atomic Slim.)
As soon as the ride stopped, we gathered ourselves and walked to the spot where the phone had landed. I scooped up my Samsung S9 and saw immediately that it was still in perfect condition. The Atomic Slim’s advanced shockproof protection had shielded my phone from the justified shock of being flung off of a merry-go-round. I snapped a few more pictures of my kids and we headed out to get some ice cream.
As the parent of two young kids, I always knew I would need a rugged phone case, but this trip to the fun fair proved the value of the Atomic Slim case.
