I purchased a Galaxy S9+ in advance of my trip to Rome, since I knew I would want to take spectacular photos of all the sights. I ordered the Atomic Slim case from Ghostek at the same time. I figured the case would provide solid protection and look good – little did I know how much I would need the Atomic Slim’s powerful shockproof technology on my very first day in Italy.
Once I checked into my hotel and dropped of my luggage in my room, I was ready to race out the door and start exploring. I was feeling a little jetlagged, but the exhaustion didn’t make me any less excited – just a little foggy. I grabbed my room key, stuck my phone in my pocket, and headed out the door.
My hotel was just a block away from the Spanish Steps: one of the most iconic sights in all of Rome. I strolled towards the Piazza di Spagna, taking in the vibrant colors and classic Roman architecture all around me. The area was packed with tourists, but the crowds didn’t faze me in the least. Actually, I was kind of excited about taking pictures of the chaotic atmosphere. I grabbed my phone and started snapping away, capturing images of the Fontana della Barcaccia, the Keats-Shelley House, and, obviously, the steps themselves.
Soon, I started climbing up the stairs to get a better view. The crowd was growing, and I had to push and shove a bit to get through the masses. As I climbed, the sounds of the Italian city filled my ears. “Signore! Buy a rose for me!” a street vendor yelled in my direction. “Scusi, scusi,” Roman residents said impatiently as they pushed past me.
I was holding up my phone as I climbed, the stairs, trying to capture the exciting energy. Suddenly, the crowd surged, and someone with a huge backpack bumped right into me. In an instant, my phone flew from my hand, hit the ground, and fell down a few steps.
The nearby street vendor scooped up the phone and rushed over to hand it to me. “Thank you so much,” I said gratefully. “Prego, prego!” the street vendor replied. He then pointed to my phone with a look of concern. “It is OK?” he asked.
I nodded as I began inspecting every inch of my new Galaxy S9+. There wasn’t a scratch to be seen. The camera and flash had been perfectly protected by the raised edge, and the screen was shielded from damage by the raised bevel. Despite the powerful tumble my phone had taken, the Atomic Slim’s shockproof technology prevented the impact from causing any damage. I scrolled threw a few of my most recent pictures to demonstrate to the vendor that the phone was working perfectly. “Perfetto – ciao!” he said cheerfully.
The rest of my visit to Rome was just as eventful, and thanks to my Atomic Slim case, I was able to capture all of the exciting moments on my phone’s camera.
