    3mm thicker

    Is the underlined of 1 correct? Or does it have to be 2?

    1.This cell-phone case with 3mm thicker makes flexible protection of the cell-phone.

    2.This cell-phone case with 3mm higher thickness than before makes flexible protection of the cell-phone.

    Thicker doesn't usually mean "flexible."

    Try "This cell phone case is 3mm thicker than before, while still providing flexible protection."

    Thanks. But this should be a phrase, so my created one is like this.

    Extra 3mm thickness provides flexible protection.

    - I used "extra" as only the edges are 3mm thicker to prevent any damage even if the phone falls down on the ground.

    Re: 3mm thicker

    What do you mean by "flexible protection?

    My shot:
    The 3mm thicker and more flexible cellphone case provides better protection for the cellphone.

    Thanks. It means that the case is more flexible due to 3mm thicker edges, protecting the cellphone from damage better than the ones with no thicker edges. Maybe 2 is better as a phrase.

    1. Extra 3mm thickness provides flexible protection.
    2. 3mm thicker flexible edges provide better protection.

    Re: 3mm thicker

    Yes, 2 is better. The edges are flexible. The protection isn't flexible.

    Re: 3mm thicker

    The protection is good/satisfactory/sound/weak/no good.
    The flexible edges make the protection good.

    Better protection is better than flexible protection.
