Another September means another new iPhone release and this year was no exception with the introduction of the S series iterative upgrade of the iPhone X, also known as the Xs and the new bigger brother the Xs Max. As always, the all glass design, albeit stunning, can be fragile and deserves some protection from drops and perhaps some welcome added functionality. Here are some of the best cases for the new iPhones.
When only the best will do, there truly is nothing better than a genuine leather case to wrap up that beautiful new phone and Burkley have some offerings that will not only feel great in the hand but turns some heads too!
Describing themselves as a lifestyle brand with strong traditions of hand-craftsmanship, they ingrain luxury and class into everything that they do and their Leather folio case is no exception. Available in 3 colors, the handcrafted full-grain premium leather case features 2 card and 1 visible id slots plus a separate compartment for cash.
The folio style case, wraps the side edges and top of the phone with a small lip over the screen but leaves the bottom free for docking and is also completely compatible with wireless chargers. One thing we really love about the case which is often overlooked in similar offerings is the magnetic clasping mechanism that keeps the case securely closed when not in use.
Best of all, the case will not break the bank coming in just under $80. There really is no price for luxury.
When people think of protective cases, they think utilitarian or practical and rarely does the word premium come to mind. Urban Armor Gear, want to keep your new phone safe with the best they have to offer, their Monarch case.
Promising military grade protection, The Monarch meets 2X Military drop-test standards (MIL STD 810G 516.6) and is handcrafted using authentic top grain leather or carbon fiber and stunning alloy metal hardware. Despite its beefy build it is very light and has oversized tactile buttons and a brilliant lip around the screen for those who like to leave their phone face down. The soft inner core is also designed to protect your device from impact with its honeycomb traction grip.
Not only does the Monarch look sleek, it feels surprisingly light and adds little bulk. Best of all, it is also backed by a 10-year warranty that will probably outlive your device and we love that!
Built on the vision of creating minimalist, modern and practical tools for the modern nomad, the company of the same name, Nomad, is built on a quietly brilliant principal: they want you to enjoy your devices as they accompany and not control you on your journey through life.
Their Rugged Folio is a welcome update to last years’ release and features a high-grade polycarbonate body, bonded to a raised TPE bumper. Featuring 3 card slots and 1 cash slot, the Rugged Folio is wrapped in stunning but supple Horween leather that develops a patina with time and takes on a look totally unique look to your case.
The soft microfiber inner lining is also great to the touch and the card slots are practical but where Nomad’s offering excels is its ability to that sweet spot between protective and stylish as the Rugged Folio comes complete with not only a svelte profile but a massive 6ft of drop protection and may in fact be the perfect all-rounder case.
