With the release of the new iPhone SE, its time to revisit some of the best cases out there for the 2020 line of current smartphones from Apple. These options have the One Cut seal of approval from our team and readers alike as some of the best options out there to protect your new device.
Caudabe Sheath and Synthesis Cases
When it comes to the perfect balance between style, minimalism and protection it is hard to look any further than Caudabe.
What is quickly becoming a household name in the smartphone accessories market, their Sheath case for iPhone is a under 1mm thick but offers some reassuring 6 ft drop protection.
Made from their proprietary Shocklite polymer, not only is this case compatible with wireless charging but also offers a very welcome textured grip which feels great in the hand.
For those seeking the ultimate matte clear case, then you must check out their Synthesis line. Available in both black and white, the case is made from the same shock absorbent material but features a matte transparent micro etched back plate that allows that stunning Apple logo to just shine through.
This one is also even more protective with its raised edges around the perimeter of the screen that protect the screen, grippable laser-etched diamond pattern on the sides and very subtle bumps on the back four corners that raise your iPhone slightly off the surface to protect the back from abrasions.
If you are about style and substance, both offerings from Caudabe are truly excellent.
Regular One Cut readers will know that we love wallet cases because it frees up our pockets from unnecessary bulk and this Presidio Wallet by Speck is worth considering.
This one-piece snap on case features a unique slot on the back to store three of your most frequently used cards and even a little cash. It also offers a massive 13ft of drop protection thanks to Speck’s own layer of IMPACTIUM™ cushioning which layers the inside and corners.
Also, worth considering is the antimicrobial treatment applied to the case that provides lifetime product protection against stain and odor causing bacteria growth, especially important in this COVID era we find ourselves in.
If you are looking to simplify your EDC (everyday carry), this is a great starting point!
You have probably seen many of Mous’ viral videos of people using their cases and throwing their phone down flights of stairs unscathed and there is good reason for that – the case essentially makes your phone almost indestructible.
This is largely in part thanks to their proprietary high impact AiroShock™ material that the case is constructed from. It contains thousands of micro air pockets that act as tiny springs, significantly dampening the impact of falls.
New, this generation, is their AutoAlign Plus technology, which is Mous’ own innovative magnetic mounting system that allows you to use the case with their accessories such as their car mount.
The triple-layered blend of TPU, PET & Silicon makes this case in a league of its own and takes the crown for the best slim tough case you can buy for the iPhone in 2020.
We can’t end this lineup without something a little funky and fresh and these will fit the bill if you are looking to standout!
These hand-made artisan phone cases are not only minimalist but are made from refined sartorial fabrics that are given a protective treatment to make them water-repellent and stain-proof, preserving the fabric without altering the pleasantness to the touch.
They also offer some welcoming protection thanks in part to the shock-absorbing microfiber lining on the inside to protect from impact, dust and scratches.
Best of all, with so many colors and textures to choose from, this may be the most stylish way to personalize your device!
