Apple's iPhone X is now widely available, and it's a beauty. It's also pricey, at $999 to start, so you're going to want a new case to keep your investment in pristine condition. You're also going to want that case to match the iPhone X's striking looks.
Choosing a case that complements and protects the iPhone X's display can be daunting, but luckily, case designers have already produced plenty of options to fit your demands. From rugged to waterproof or just plain stylish, you can pick from a variety of options. Here are 25 iPhone X cases that have caught our eye so far.
If you're investing more than $1,000 on a smartphone, you're allowed to dress your device in premium materials. Designed by Apple to complement the iPhone X, this tanned, European leather case cushions your phone's curved edges without added bulk. Over time, the Apple Leather Case should develop a natural patina, giving the accessory a vintage feel. It comes with matching aluminum buttons and a microfiber interior that protects your iPhone X, all in one slim package. Available in Cosmos Blue, Pink Fuchsia, Dark Aubergine, Charcoal Gray, Taupe, Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue, Black and the licensed Product Red, Apple's colorful leather adds a pop of personality. For $50 extra, you can get your hands on Apple's leather folio version, though that case offers fewer color choices.
NewerTech tries to strike the right balance between protecting your iPhone and swaddling it in too much needless bulk with its NuGuard KX line of cases. Now fitted for the iPhone X, the KX series features a case made out of absorbent gel designed to evenly distribute kinetic energy in case of a drop. While the outer shell of the KX is solid, a soft interior core houses your iPhone X while giving you access to remaining ports and buttons on the device. And the NuGuard KX comes with a lifetime warranty where NewerTech will replace your case should it wear out.
You may sense a great disturbance in the Force when you see this iPhone X case, but your phone will be well covered. Hex features four different Star Wars designs with characters ranging from R2D2 to an X-Wing fighter pilot embossed into the leather cases. But this Darth Vader model with its black exterior is the one that rules the galaxy. In addition to a custom modled bed to hold your iPhone X in place, there's also a pocket for cash and three credit card slots. Because even mastery of the Force doesn't get you off the hook for picking up the check.
If you're a fashionista who owns an iPhone X, it might be difficult to find a worthy case that represents your unique style. Bandolier's luxurious cross-body iPhone X cases are stylish options that remove the need for bulky purses and wallets. The Libby Gold X case is made out of pebbled black leather with a matching, 52-inch strap that's intertwined with a gold chain. The Libby Gold X comes with precise camera cutouts and button covers, so you'll never have to take your iPhone X out of the case. It also has a concealed snapback cover to hold your cash or credit cards.
If I had a dollar for every time an iPhone slipped out of my hand and fell to the ground, I'd be able to buy one iPhone X for work and another just for myself. The slipperiness of the phones is why we're considering the Spigen Thin Fit iPhone X case, with its grippy, non-slip matte surface. And as you see here, it's an incredibly-thin case, barely adding any lip to the phone and not covering any of its display. And at $10.99, the case is highly affordable.
We've seen a lot of shock-absorbing cases in our time, but never has one featured its own name. That's changed, though, with Speck's Presidio iPhone X case with its Impactium lining. And while the case does add a little with its own bezel, it's there to protect your iPhone X's OLED display from direct drops onto its face. Available in a Black that blends into all of your other stuff and a hue Speck calls Dusty Green that we're eyeing with envy.
Ghostek seals your iPhone X away from the elements with the Atomic Slim Tough Case. Made with an aluminum-alloy frame and dual-layered thermoplastic, the Atomic Slim is a MIL-SPEC-tested case that absorbs shock and resists scratches. Raised corners will protect your iPhone X's precious OLED display, while port covers keep unwanted particles out. Thanks to its clear back, the Atomic Slim is compatible with wireless charging. Available in black, gold, pink, red, silver and teal, the Atomic Slim is a distinctive phone case, especially when you take into account Ghostek's artistic interior, which features branded comic strips.
