Best Apple iPhone X cases

by Justin Herrick | December 17, 2017December 17, 2017 12:00 pm PST

High-end phones are getting more expensive. Just look at Apple’s iPhone X. It’s the most expensive iPhone ever made, and that’s for a good reason. The company packed a ton of groundbreaking technology into its latest flagship. So the $999 price tag might actually be reasonable. And, if you’re someone who’s paid that much for a new iPhone, you should treat it with great care. Cases are an easy way to do that, but make sure you get the right one that doesn’t take away from your iPhone X’s look and feel.

Here are some of the best cases for the Apple iPhone X.

Kroma Prismatic Case

  • Color(s): Clear
  • Price: $11, eligible for Prime shipping

The Prismatic case is one of the simplest options you’ll find. Its body is clear, giving you an unfiltered look at the iPhone X’s stainless steel unibody. And it’s maintaining your iPhone’s appearance without losing protection. The case is made from an anti-scratch thermoplastic polyurethane. That means if keys in your pocket rub against the back or you drop the device on the floor, your iPhone X isn’t going to look like a mess.

Spigen Ultra Hybrid Case

  • Color(s): Matte Black, Crystal Clear, Red, Rose Crystal, Space Crystal
  • Price: $12, eligible for Prime shipping

Spigen always deserves a spot on any list involving cases. The brand’s products are on the affordable side, and they always deliver both protection and style. With the Ultra Hybrid case, you’re getting a polycarbonate case surrounded by a thermoplastic polyurethane bumper. So your iPhone X will be shielded. However, Spigen didn’t add a ton of bulk. The case is still on the slimmer side and also comes in your choice of five colors.

Apple Silicone Case

  • Color(s): Black, White, Red, Blue Cobalt, Dark Olive, Midnight Blue, Pink Sand, Ultra Violet
  • Price: $39, eligible for Prime shipping

Not everyone loves third-party cases, and that’s why Apple’s own Silicone case earns a spot on our list. It’s also a great case in general. Made from, you guessed it, silicone, the accessory is smooth-feeling. Inside there’s a microfiber lining, and the two materials together protect your iPhone X during frightening drops. All without making your $999 investment a bulky eyesore.

Don’t be shy with this case. Sure, Apple’s charging good money for it. But you get a first-party case that’s sold in a wide range of colors.

Apple Leather Case

  • Color(s): Black, Red, Charcoal Gray, Cosmos Blue, Dark Aubergine, Midnight Blue, Pink Fuchsia, Saddle Brown, Taupe
  • Price: $49, eligible for Prime shipping

Leather cases are very popular, but you can’t blindly purchase one. Apple’s Leather case is a safe bet to protect your iPhone and remain intact over time. Some of the other leather-based cases on Amazon are, frankly, extremely cheap and will look gross from stains. Avoid them, please. You can trust Apple’s offering because it’s “specially tanned and finished European leather” being used. The case feels soft, and it’ll develop a natural patina during your time with it.

Allovit Kickstand-Wallet Case

  • Color(s): Black
  • Price: $10, eligible for Prime shipping

Allovit’s Kickstand-Wallet case is gaining momentum on Amazon. It’s currently listed as the #1 New Release, which is because the case costs just $10 but boasts plenty of functionality. You’re getting a kickstand and a wallet in a one case.

If you’re someone who loves watching videos on your iPhone, get this case. If you’re someone who wants to reduce how many things you carry around, get this case. It’s a two-in-one accessory that enhances your video streaming experience and stores cash and/or cards. Maybe you’ll be out at a bar or restaurant wanting to stream a football game. With this case, you can prop your iPhone X up for easy viewing and then pay the bill with the cash or cards in stored inside.

The case doesn’t slouch on protection, either. It has both polycarbonate and thermoplastic polyurethane. You should feel confident if your iPhone X takes a tumble in this Allovit-made case.

OtterBox Defender Case

  • Color(s): Black, Marathoner, Stormy Peaks, Purple Nebula, Big Sur, Coral Dot
  • Price: $50, eligible for Prime shipping

Clumsy people don’t need to look at any case but OtterBox’s Defender. You know OtterBox, and you know the Defender offers total protection. You’re getting multi-layer defense approved by the brand’s in-house Drop+ Protection Certification program. What that means is this case underwent more than two dozen tests across hundreds of hours before hitting the market. Drop it? No problem. Go through a dust storm? Easy. There are few things capable of harming your iPhone X when it’s stored in the Defender case.

OtterBox also includes a belt clip and holster that doubles as a kickstand.

MNML Thin Case

  • Color(s): Clear White, Clear Black, Metallic Red, Really Blue, Solid Black
  • Price: $15, eligible for Prime shipping

Unlike most cases, MNML’s Thin case doesn’t care about protection. It’s purely for looks. While you’ll definitely have a shield against small objects, the case is extremely thin and won’t manage drops very well. In fact, if you drop your iPhone X while it’s in this case, grab some tissues because you’ll probably be in tears. But that doesn’t take away from the Thin case’s ability to reject potential scratches collected over time and add some color to your iPhone.

MNML sells this case in four colors, and each of them could add personality to the rather plain Space Gray and Silver finishes sold by Apple.

Torras Lock Case

  • Color(s): Black, Blue, Red, Silver, Rose Gold
  • Price: $15, eligible for Prime shipping

Apple’s iPhone X looks and feels luxurious. Maybe you want a case just like it. Check out Torras’ Lock case, which carries a luxurious vibe but doesn’t cost a fortune. It’s thin, scratch-resistant, and shows two finishes.

Torras composed the body of a plastic back and two electroplated frames. If you’ve longed for a high-end case, you’ve got one here. It’s also easy to grip because of the matte surface, and the case itself is so thin that your iPhone X’s slim body looks the way Apple intended.

The Lock case is a surprise at $15 because of how attractive the design is.
