The iPhone X is probably the most highly anticipated gadgets of 2017, as well as one of the priciest. We’ve rounded up some of the best iPhone X cases you can buy right now to make sure your new smartphone is kept in tip top condition. We wouldn’t want you turning yourself into the poop emoji with a smashed screen now would we?
1. Protect your iPhone X in style with the Speck Candyshell and Candyshell Grip
The Candyshell case series by Speck is one of my all time favorites. They’ve updated this line for the iPhone X, and I’m extremely glad they have. These aren’t the cheapest cases you can find, but it’s one you’ll be able to keep probably for the whole
The Candyshell Grip is also a great alternative with slightly more color than just the standard Candyshell case.
2. For a clear, simple case you can rely on, go Spigen
The iPhone X is a beautiful phone, you can’t deny it. It does seem a bit of a shame to shove a big case on it so that you can’t see the phone’s beauty. With a clear plastic case, you get the best of both. Unfortunately most clear plastic cases fall short on protection, or are just plain cheap quality.
The Neo Hybrid case offering from Spigen is a really good solution to this problem. It’s clear and thin, so you get to see the iPhone X in all it’s glory, yet protective enough to withstand most drops and bumps.
3. Survive anything with the Otterbox Defender Series
The defender series is another collection of iPhone cases that is almost as old as the original iPhone itself. Every year, the defender series is reiterated and improved, because it’s just so damn successful. You’ll never have to worry about breaking your phone ever again if you’re using the Defender series. A perfect companion if you are a fan of outdoor sports or are just a little clumsy.
This particular case also comes with a screen cover included, but you can get a model without.
4. Don’t discount Apple’s own case offerings
Sure, they might be expensive, but Apple does make some pretty nice cases for their iPhones. My personal choice for this one would be the tan leather case for iPhone X. Genuine leather cases gather a gorgeous patina over time, giving your case a completely unique feel.
P.s, yeah, I know that image isn’t the iPhone X.
5. Tech 21’s Pure Clear case is both minimal and protective
I’ve been a big fan of Tech21 ever since I watched this video by UnboxTherapy, demonstrating their impact technology. This ‘Pure Clear’ case is an example of a great all-rounder. You’ll get some great shock protection, whilst still having a fairly minimal case which doesn’t detract from your iPhone X’s design too much.
6. Nomad’s leather wallet case for iPhone X
I’m a huge fan of Nomad’s iPhone case lineup. I personally own a rugged all-over leather Nomad case for my iPhone 7 and it’s probably my favourite case. As their product lines all use high quality genuine leather, over time they develop a gorgeous patina unrivalled by other cases.
With this particular offering from Nomad, you can stash your cards or notes so that you don’t have to bring a wallet out separately.
7. Instead of a case, go for a glass screen protector
Weren’t we talking about the best iPhone X cases? I’m flat out cheating here. This isn’t a case, but it’s a pretty damn good alternative. If you don’t want to completely cover up your beautiful new iPhone, and want it to retain it’s form factor, a glass screen protector is a good option.
It’s not going to protect your phone hugely from drops that aren’t on the screen, but it’ll offer good scratch protection by placing your phone face down. If you drop and smash your screen, simply whip off the protector and buy another one! Glass protectors are awesome.
8. Pick up a leather folio style case from NODUS
You can’t go too far wrong with a good old fashioned folio case. They aren’t everyone’s first choice, but if you like the style, you’ll want to check out the offerings from NODUS.
9. For simple yet luxurious, try Elago’s iPhone X case
I’m a huge fan of the gold accents Elago use for their iPhone X case. This is a really good option if you want a bit of style, yet solid all-round drop protection that should protect your iPhone from most bumps and scrapes.
As with our other iPhone cases and accessory Stacks, more are being added on a daily basis. The iPhone X is sure to be a huge success, with tons of products being released for it throughout the year. We’ll be releasing new Stacks rounding up the best iPhone X cases and accessories as they are released.
