    covering/wearing the Case

    Which is correct between the three? I think "being covered with" is best but it's too long as a short phrase.
    This means that even after the cellphone is covered with a case, due to a hole in the case, a cable can be connected to the cellphone.

    Apparently, there is a hole in the case so a cable can be connected to it while the phone is in the case.

    Re: covering/wearing the Case

    I would say the phone is fitted with the case, not covered, as only part of the phone is covered.
    The holes (power, speaker, etc) provided at the side of the case allows cables to be connected to the phone.

    To make a short phrase, would this be good?

    It's the phone that's still usable after you put it in the case.

    No, it means cable can be connected to phone.

    Re: covering/wearing the Case

    You do not need "usable" with "cable". It is misleading.

    ****The cable is usable after the phone is fitted with the case.

    Otherwise, apparently, the cable is not usable.
