With Tech-Tober about to begin, chances are you may be investing in one of many new phones being released this month and every shiny slippery new thing needs some form of protection to keep it from becoming something a purchase you will soon regret when it’s broken. Here are our recommendations for the best phone cases you can buy on the market today!
When it comes to minimalist grippy protection for your new phone, a great starting point is the Sheath. Coming in at less than 1mm thick, this case not only conforms nicely to the shape of the phone but also offers a reassuring 6 ft of drop protection.
Made from their proprietary Shocklite polymer, the case is fully compatible with wireless charging and offers a very welcome textured grip which feels great in the hand.
This is one of the few cases that not only looks great, doesn’t make the phone too bulky but also offers some reassurance it won’t fly out of your hand or pocket anytime soon – it checks all the right boxes for us!
For those looking for a more luxurious and premium case to match that premium device – Noreve, specialize in making stylish, elegant, and protective leather cases for your favorite devices.
Designed in the beautiful St. Tropez in the South of France, Noreve believes in one fundamental principle – Everything is based on quality, and from that, the company prides itself on using quality leathers, molds, and exceptional cutting techniques to cultivate the art of the object.
What makes their smartphone accessories so appealing is the ability to customize your choice with what they call different ranges. Each range features different design cues, materials, and patterns to truly make a premium case that suits everyone’s needs.
Consumers can also specify coloring both in and outside the case as well as dictate overall design with both snap-on, folio, and flip-down varieties available. They are not inexpensive but nothing feels better than leather!
One of the unfortunate things a lot of us do when we buy a new cell phone is slap some big, clunky case on it that hides the aesthetic beauty that designers spent many painstaking hours creating. The CrashGuard NX by Rhinoshield is a classic bumper case to protect against those bumps and drops but more importantly, is fully customizable so you can make it yours!
Founded back in 2012, Rhinoshield prides itself on using its world-class Research & Development team and strong material science and engineering to create high-quality products and the CrashGuard is a testament to this. With 11 different frame colors, 12 different rim colors, and 22 different button options, users can truly create something special. It also protective too, this is thanks in part to their Shockspread material with a unique hexagonal pattern that lines the case inner providing up to 11ft of drop protection.
This thing is so strong it even Surpasses US military drop-test standard (MIL-STD 810G) all the while being BPA, BPS, or BPF free! If you are prone to dropping your phone, this may be the case for you.
UAG has been at the top of the cellphone accessory game now for sometime when it comes to genuine military standard drop protection and it doesn’t get better than their Plasma case. Offering the near-perfect blend of premium design coupled with serious protection, it is one that we can wholeheartedly recommend to anyone looking for an idiot-proof case.
Meeting military drop-test standards (MIL-STD 810G 516.6) and coming with a 10-year warranty (yes 10 years!) the case is crafted from a clear Featherlite composite that shows the design of the phone with an impact-resistant core, oversized buttons, and a generous screen lip and all of this is done without creating a bulky tank-like case. It is very impressive.
The case is also very light and is fully compatible with wireless charging and Apple/Google Pay and while the design is objective, the industrial look may not suit everyone’s tastes but if you are looking for a case that will last the life of the phone and more, then look no further than this bad boy!
