Mobile phones are complex and sensitive electronic devices that may be susceptible to fracture if fell down unless shielded securely.Accordingly, Cases are effective means to defend the phones against sudden impact. The performance of these covers relay on many aspects such as design and the potential of the materials. For this reason, it is intended in this project to estimate the effect of the material properties on the impact resistance of the covers using the powerful of Solidworks program. The materials modeled linear elastically and the mobile impacted the ground from a 1 m height under the effect of gravitational force. The results showed that mobile cover made of silicone rubber failed in the impact and polycarbonate shelter was superior to thermoplastic polyurethane rubber cover due to the highest modulus of elasticity. In addition to that, verification of the simulation process was done by comparing the results to the experimental works cited in the literature. It is found that maximum Von Mises stress at the bottom edge and the corners of Gorilla Glass were satisfactory close to the result obtained by Bocko et al.
