Generally speaking, phone cases tend to adhere to the shape of the phone they're designed to protect. For many, they're a necessary evil – the less conspicuous the better. But it seems others are keen for their case to give their phone an edge – literally.

Rectangular phone cases are becoming increasingly popular, thanks in part, apparently, to a certain celebrity known as Taylor Swift. Whereas Joe Biden might want his phone to look as round as possible, Swift has gone the opposite way, with a phone case than can only be described as straight-edge.
